My Fantastic Followers:)

Friday, August 26, 2011


I am so excited because this is the first "real " card I have made since I moved up to Maryborough.  Although it has taken me a while to get back into crafting, I think the move  overwhelmed me and sort of took my crafty spirit away. But I feel it creeping back...slowly:)
Anyway here is what I made....
When I saw this image from Kenny K of Jeannie, I knew I had to buy it, as I'm a real big Barbara Eden fan...And just to give that authentic touch, I chose the island hideaway theme from Make it Crafty...after all Jeannie was found on the beach...
    I chose lots of coloured card stock and a really nice pattern paper from a Kaiser collection and even threw in some of my own paper I painted with acrylic paints.
In the corner of the card I used this round tin object I found in the backyard, cleaned it up and my circle sentiment fitted nicely inside. I also made a pointy gear for it to sit on.
The "Thank you " sentiment is for all my crafty friends who have visited me from time to time since I have been incognito and I do so appreciate it. You guys are the best:))))
Now to my last pic....
I coloured the scene and Jeannie with copics, and my fav baby oil and pencil technique (Have to show you sometime on a video how I do it) . I used light blue stickles for the ocean, silver for her slippers and crystal effects on the Jeannie bottle..
I do hope you like it and I have been dying to do some challenges
So here I go :)))
