Before starting I want to thank all comments on my first post, you are helping me to get over the scary feeling about my blogging new life. Thank you so much!!
As Michelle so nicely suggest me I´m starting to post today some crafts I made to share with everybody. What a nice idea! because I didn´t know how and where to start...
So first I´m sowing the entry I made to participate in last weekend challenge "under the sea" that Michelle set for us at her PCP group. Michelle´s images are so great! but I´ll dedicate my next post to show all I did using her art work.
This is the whole piece:
it´s an altered cardboard box that I papier-mache to give it texture and after it dryed I sponged it with acrylic paint. I colored the Tutti-Frutti Mermaid from Michelle Perkett with coloring pencils and suspended her with a fishing lane on the middle of the box. Here is a picture of Tutti-Frutti before gettting into her fish-box
I put as a background an assembly I did on photoshop with some digi-scrap freebie I found a long ago, printed it out and glued it on the inside of the box. I finished the project with Michelle´s sentiment "Believe" and some embellishments. I have to mention also that I won that challenge, such an unespected thing!!! but sooo pleasant! thanks so much Michelle!!
And second, I´m participating in a challenge also at Aly´s Sunday Challenge (Aly is a 11 y-o creative little lady that I found a few days ago). This card has a history of its own... one day I was feeling inspired and I doodled something that I wanted to use as a background for an image. Here is what I drew
I colored the image with my coloring pencils using a color combination at another weekend challenge posted by Michelle: orange, pink and red. I couldn´t participate that time and the color combination was something I´d neved used myself but I wanted to see what could I do with that
then I liked it so much how it turned out that i could use it as a background, so I made a card using Aly´s sketch #9 and Maggie from Digital Delights for my daughter
I added some details with glitter gel pens, some words I wrote myself and a ribbon to follow the sketch.
