Halloween Series 2016 | Day #6 Dark Queen

Happy Thursday! Don’t fall over! I know that it has been somewhat rare for my to be posting two days in a row! I just really wanted to make sure that this last video in my Halloween Series went up at least a little bit before the big day!
I love, love this image from Tiddly Inks. I have had it for awhile now and I just was so happy to finally be able to create with it. I decided to create an Art Journal page using the image as the focal point and to then create a fun background to showcase it!

I was a little hesitant to invest in the Gamsai Tambi palette, but I am so, so glad I did. I love the depth of color and the endless possiblities which this palette lends. Watercoloring is something which I “play” with. I am by no means an expert but it is just such a fun and playful way to create backgrounds. My youngest is starting to want to play with water and paint as well and I just let him! He has so much fun!

Step by step explanations for both the copic coloration and the background watercoloring can be found in my video below!

Christmas Series | Day #3 Winter Wonder Slider Card

Happy Wednesday! I am finally back with another video in my Christmas 2016 Series! Life has been knocking us for a loop these days. I am really hoping for some “calm” and sameness before the holiday season hits! I think we are due! In times when there are a lot of stressful things going on, I try to find a little time to do some crafting. It soothes my soul and centers me. I was so excited to sit down with all these Whimsy Products to create this slide card!

I think that this image is absolute perfection. As soon as I saw it in the new release, I knew that it would work really well in a slider type card. Just a little cutie walking along with her teddy in tow :)

Below you can see all the different stages of “slidiness”! I just love how it turned out. I am going to leave all the rest of the explanation to my video which you will find below all the photos!
