Color of the Day 72


I have had a few blog follower seek me out while they were in town (Phoenix, Arizona).  It has been quite enjoyable putting faces to names and hanging out with people who share the same passion as I do.  If you are ever in town be sure and say hello.  It was great to meet you today Viola L (from Cedar Rapids).  Hello to you, and YOUR students...thank you for hanging out with me today!  Also a big shout out to Charlene who sought me out at Scraps Of Love and found me through Make-It-Crafty.  Such a great way to make new friends!

....back to your regular tag broadcast!

The Love of a Friend

Hello friends.   Color of the Day is on standby for a week.  Please read.

 I wanted to take a moment to talk about a wonderful person that has had a lot of influence on my life for almost 10 years.  This wonderful friends name is Leesa.  She was my encouragement, my person I could talk to when I was sad.  The person I could tell bad jokes to and she would still laugh.  She was my second opinion on most things I do.  She could keep a secret like no other (even if it was because she forgot the secret).  She was creative, caring, loving to everyone she met and made time for me even when she wasn't "feeling it".  All these things and more she was to me...as I was to her.  That is what best friends are for.  On October 8th God said it was her time to go.  It was unexpected and has left me shaken, feeling numb and kinda a mess.  I am working on being at peace with this, knowing she is now in Gods arms and in a much better place.  Her husband had been unexpectedly taken from her...and now she is with him and I know they are both very happy together at last.  I know Leesa is at peace now.  I will not be posting the Color of The Day for about 1 week as I travel to Colorado to assist her family of whom I love.  Stand by and hang tight....I will be back with more colors soon.  Thank you all for understanding.  And one more thing...call your best friend and tell them you love them!

HERE is the link.


 If you have one to share using the tags just leave your link in the comments and I will go check it out and share it with everyone.

Copic Color of the Day Madness

Have you been collecting the Color Of The Day?  If so, how are you "storing" them?  Are they still on your computer, or maybe they have been printed and stuck into a book?  Or maybe you have made them into a very adorable mini book on their own like Keeley from the UK has done.  You can see more photos on her blog.
Please share how you are keeping these helpful little tags on your blog and link to my blog and I will post it to my blog and link back to you...we all want to see!!  Just leave a message with your link!

Thank you Keeley for the inspiration!!  We are only on day 63....better get yourself a bigger ring :)

Happy "Jack"

Lisa Hindsley did it again!  I love "Happy" Jack...he is just the happiest pumpkin EVER.  He brought a smile to my face when I colored him up.  He is available through Stampendous or at your local craft store (or can be if you ask them to get it in for you).



Another Wonderful image by artist Lisa Hindsley!

Copics Used:  
YG03 YG17 YG67 greenery
Y19 YR24 YR27 E57 Pumpkin/sunflower
 BV20 BV23 BV25 BV29 Scarf
E84 E87 E89 Jacket


6x6 tent fold

Color up the image and ink the edges.   adhere to orange pattern paper and then onto purple pattern paper.  distress the edges.  Pop up onto a pattern piece of paper.  layer using foam pop up tape onto another orange piece of pattern paper.  layer onto a purple pattern paper and then onto  a brown card base.  Tuck burlap between the layers.  thread buttons with twine and adhere to edges of image using glue dots.  Using liquid adhesive add mica fragments.

Color of the day 57



**Please note that I normally color using the lightest color first, dark, medium and back to light.  I only slightly blend the edge of the last color placed....BUT WITH THIS COMBO...I blended from the right as well as blended from the left....so taking the darkest color BV25 blend with RV69 and RV34 and from the right blended Y35, YR16 and R14 which should slightly overlap the RV34....it will take a bit so repeat the steps to get a smooth blend...but can be done.  Then add the shadow

With the cheeks I like to do tip to tip and color in from the outer edge.
