Create your Day!
I then colored them using Copic markers C5, C3, C1, C0 and R20.
I then used a pink Faber-Castell Pitt Big Brush Artist Pen to go around the edges.
Sort or a zetangle effect.
I then wrote the verse on the card.
"Home is a starting place for love and dreams."
It needed a little something else so I splattered some distress ink
all over the card. I used Black Soot and Pickled Raspberry with the
Distress Marker Spritzer.
Don't forget to come back this week and see what the girls create.
Have a wonderful Monday everyone.

I LOVE Art & colour, and then putting the two together to create beautiful things. I do it because I find it SO healing and comforting! I love sharing and teaching what I have learnt and felt with others.

PPS. Here is a picture of my missionary; Elder Kurt Weckesser. He has been in Japan for just over a year now. I can’t believe it! He is doing so wonderful but, oh my do I miss him! And for being a country boy, I can’t believe that that he rides train across a whole country all the time and speaks Japanese like it is nothing! Wow! I am SO going to have to go there with him when he is done his mission!
