Monday, Monday!!

Hello & Happy Monday to ya! Did ya have a good weekend--I sure hope so!! I had a wonderful weekend, the weather was sunny and nice and my mom came to visit (waving "hi" mom)! We went to see "A Chorus Line" and I really enjoyed it--I just love Broadway shows and musicals, wish I could afford to see them every month :o) Yesterday it was in the high 60's and we were able to get outside and go for a long walk with the doggies and eat lunch outside--I just love spring weather. And I'm happy to say that hubby bought me a brand-spankin' new Flash Drive video camer---yahoooo. He even got me a mini tripod for my desk so I was able to shoot 6 videos for ya yesterday! (see below for links)

I am working on some big projects to share with you this week and my BLOG CANDY to celebrate my 1 year Blogaversary coming on Wednesday--you won't want to miss it!

Today my card uses another image from The Greeting Farm's "Miss Anya Collection"--I just love these girls. I paired this one up with some beautiful dp from Basic Grey's "Porcelain" stack, so soft and pretty. I made another hat pin (which I love to do) and added some pink Kaiser pearls to accent. I love how this one turned out! Whatcha' think?

Okay, so I was able to reshoot my Copic videos for you from the left side so you could see my coloring better and zoomed in more too. So make sure and check these out:

This tutorial is just some Copic tips for ya (cardstock, inks, marker info)-

This one is coloring of clothing (light source, shading & highlighting info)-

This tutorial shows coloring of hair-

This tutorial shows coloring of skin (skin tones and highlighting)-

Tomorrow I will have a tutorial on coloring 2 Lockhart images (fruit & flowers) and a tutorial on how to use Flower Soft on your images too!

All of these tutorials will be linked on my sidebar for ya!! Please let me know if they were helpful and if ya liked 'em--and let me know what else you'd like to see for tutorials, 'kay!!!



  1. Wow... You're so amazingly talented!! I had to subscribe. :)
    The way to use an object as a reminder about the light - that was awesome! I'll remember that for when I lose track of the lighting/shading of my images! :)

    You sound a lot like my friend Leah! It made me smile a lot while listening to you. (And that's a compliment by the way, as she has a very nice voice, so obviously: so do you. :))
