Changing Seasons

Changing of seasons 2013

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week end. Here in Southern Wisconsin we have some pretty dark cloud today and we are going (the weatherman says) to have rain and that’s fine because we need it. The Color Me Creative challenge #79. You can use any image and the challenge is “ANYTHING GOES” and and you can use any kind of medium. Our sponsor is BUGABOO and the image I used is called “Jar Autumn”.

Spellbinder beaded oval to cut the image out. For the corners used cherry lynn designs lace corners B172 Deco G.

The paper I used was from my scraps. I sponged around the beaded oval with brilliance ink color beige.

My flowers I did not make they where ones I had. I colored them with my copics. I used Martha Steward branch punch for the greens. I want to point out the center of the flower I colored, I added Suze Weinberg’s Beadazzles called Tango. Also check out my lady bug that I made out of pearl pen colors red and black. I’m going to do a tutorial on now to make them for you.

For the inside used Martha Steward laurel leaf border punch. Left it open for a written or stamped sentiment. These are the copic marker used to color the image.

For the jar I added Judi Kins glass micro clear beads. Shimmers to the background in soft blue and sparkle. Not sure if you can see that.

I do have to tell you that the weatherman was right, it is raining out. So this is a great day to be in the craft room. Fantastic NEWS…. I know I had told you that I was in Austin Texas it was not for fun, my sister-in-law had brain surgery. I want to tell you that when she took a shower she was able to FEEL THAT THE WATER WAS WARM. So time will tell but this is a huge step for her getting her feeling back in the button half of her body. She is my HERO!! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope your week end is full of crafting time.
