Magical Siren

I'm on summer holidays and enjoying some quiet colouring time. I started by creating the left side by smooshing Distress Inks onto watercolour paper and once dried I use a fishscale stencil with white ink. From there I used the Saturated Canary image 'Siren' and coloured her to match the paper and to create the whole scene. I finished it off with a cluster of embellies and some texture paste to create the waves and Wink of Stella on the tail. I absolutely adore how she turned out!!!

Lego Party

Today we celebrated my little Buddy's 6th birthday. I sent Mary Ellen from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps an email a few days ago asking if she could possibly draw something special for my him in celebration of his love of Lego (as I couldn't find one elsewhere). She responded quickly and returned this super fun and perfect image for me! I was so very thankful for her artwork and my boy thinks it was awesome too!
