Happy new year

Happy New Year to all my coloring friends. It's been an amazing year and I feel very lucky to be part of the My Besties color it, create it show it off. 
Today I created a cute stamp by Sherry Ann Baldy of a skier. She reminded me of when |I used to ski as a kid.

There is so much to be thankful for.....

November 15, 2017

Hello again, 

It's mid November and the weather here is finally changing. 

This Bestie entry is just about a girl saying thanks! Actually she reminds me of a teacher who is coming for dinner.  At least that's how I saw her.  I hope you enjoy her.


Again I worked with copics, my favorite medium. These are what I used:

HAIR: E18,E15,E08,YR15,Y26
SKIN: E0000,E00,E11,E21
BLOUSE: Y38,YR15,Y32


See you in December, you know what that means........

November is a Thank you theme

November 1, 2017.

Hello everyone!  Welcome back to another installment    for Paper Butterflies. Here in Ontario we had such a wet summer, that we enjoyed the beautiful weather we were afforded in September and October!

November's theme is Thank you and there was sooooo many different things I could have done, so I have chosen this lovely Queen sitting on a sunflower (one of my favorite flowers) to color up for you today. 

In this entry, I colored the imaged with copic markers, but I also used some techniques that I learned at a watercolor class I recently took. 

These are the copic colors I used: 

HAIR: E15,YR23, YR24, Y21
BOW & SHIRT RV69, RV63, RV55
SKIN: E0000, E00, E08,E11,E21
PANTS: B95,B93,B91
SUNFLOWERS: R29, YR07, Y38, Y35,Y19
LEAVES: G94, YG11, YG13
TREE TRUNK: E09, E11,E15

It took me a long time to get the colors and coloring right but in the end I was happy with the end result.

Please join us for our monthly challenge over at color it, create it, show it off, for some awesome prizes. 

Until next time...........
