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...........

September 1, 2017

Well summer is almost "officially over". It was really cool, which was ok for me, cause I don't like the heat. But back to My Besties. I chose this image, In the Cherry Pie IMG664, because I just thought it was so darn cute. But I really struggled with the cherry's.  I learned through one of my Kit and Clowder classes, how to color reds that come out differently with shadows and I love it. But the cherries were all mushed together, so it was hard to color them in order to make them stand out. I did the best that I could, but I need to practice. The reds are done in C3, R56 OR R89, R29 AND R22. Practice, practice practice! See you in 2......................

Its a blog AND a journal, great idea!!

So I guess if nothing else I am going to use my blog as a sort of coloring journal for myself. It will track of what I've done and how I've improved over the years and help me keep track of what I've done. So today I have whipped up this little cuttie for my August 1, beach theme card!  I was really proud of myself, I was able to complete this card on the first try!! Hope you enjoy August swimnng card for colorit, createit, showit off, Thanks for dropping dropping in!!
