How's everybody doing today?  I'm having a really good day.  I have my next project here for you to see.  I'm taking the CMC (Color Me Creative) Copic Marker class from Suzanne J. Dean, and I am thoroughly enjoying myself.  I have completed class #1 and have started class #2.  There are 5 classes plus an "All about hair" class for a total of 6 classes.  I can hardly wait to take the All About Hair class because that's what I have the hardest time with. You can find the link to her classes on my side bar.  There are other classes available through CMC besides the Copic classes with Suzanne.  You should go over there and check it out.  Through her class there is a book club called BookEndz which I have joined.  I have never belonged to a book club before but I'm loving that too.  We have live chats once a month to discuss the book of the month.  So much fun.  Of course we get off topic and start discussing everything under the sun, lol.

My project today was one of the digital images I bought from Wee Stamps.  The artist is Sylvia Zet and her images are so adorable.  This image is titled "Hopeful".  I usesd this image for one of the homework lessons for my CMC class.  I did her on Cryogen Irridescent White copic quality card stock purchased from Paper Temptress.  Background paper I've had on hand for a long time, package says Sonburn Wedding.  The blue flower I made using my Emagination paper punches and a mini button for the center.  Red satin ribbon from my stock.  At the last minute I dabbed the center of the image flowers and dots with Sassy Pink Smooch Paint.  I'm very sorry, but when I did her I didn't keep track of the Copic colors I used.  In future I will make note of all of that.
Well, I hope you like her.  I know I had fun coloring her.  I'll be back with another project in the next few days.  My goal is to post at least once a week.  Would appreciate any comments you might have.

Ballerina Marci

Well, here it is, my very first posted project.  She is Ballerina Marci by La-La Land Crafts.  The patterned paper is from DCWV the Stack III, and the green glitter paper is DCWV Latte cardstock.  I have had both for so long I don't know if they are still available or not.  The flowers and "Beautiful" accents I've just had laying around and don't remember where I got them.

I colored Marci with my Copic Markers.  For the skin I used E000, E00, E11, and R20 blush.
Her hair is Y23, YR23, and E35.  Her outfit is R81, R83, and R85.
I am having a lot of fun learning to use my Copic Markers.  I will post another project soon.  Thank you for taking the time to look.

Introduction to my blog

Just wanted to let people know about my blog.  This is the first time I've ever had a blog so I'm very new and have a lot to learn.  In the future I will be posting pictures of my paper creations and maybe some of my other crafts.  I have done many types of crafts but my passion is with paper and miniatures.  I do paper quilling, parchment craft, stamping, die cutting and just about everything else with paper.  My newest addition to my paper crafting is Copic Markers.  I have gained a lot of inspiration from talented people on their blogs and Youtube and hope to some day be an inspiration to others out there myself.  Hope you follow my blog and enjoy my work.
