Lovin' Color...

I'm taking a new online class called Color Love 101 with Joanne Sharpe.  I have to say, this is such a FUN class!  I took two other classes with Joanne and just didn't have the time to dedicate to them to complete the projects.  However, I can't put my markers, pencils and crayons down in this class!  Who doesn't love color?  Here are some of the projects I've completed...

Journal Cover

Background with watercolor crayons

Tombow Markers

Inktense Pencils

Inktense Pencils - each picture block uses one line of colors from above grid
(Images hand drawn from looking at some of my favorite stamps.)

We will still have three weeks of class remaining...and I can't wait to create more color projects!  Have a GREAT week!!

I just had to have two of the new Memory Box dies...and I had a card idea in mind the minute I saw them.  I got them today and wanted to play with them immediately.  I wasn't sure what color to use for the Hibiscus flowers so I searched the net and found a beautiful color combo to use on my flowers.


I want to dedicate the card to my friend, Kerry.  Mahalo, Kerry!!  She travelled to our favorite store yesterday - Absolutely Everything - and brought me back some goodies (macaroons and cake balls)...YUMMO!!  I am about to go and devour them with my husband.  :-)  Thanks again,'re the best!!

Finally, with camera in hand, I caught a couple pics of tonight's sunset as I was going to take a picture of my yummy goodies.  What a cool sunset!  I probably should've used a different setting on the camera, but the sun was setting quickly and I had to snap away.  Have a GREAT rest of the week!

My Favorite Tag Ever...

Tim posted another GREAT tag for the month of June.  I knew the minute I saw the technique which photo I wanted to use.  I had just been looking at our vacation photos from our Disney Cruise to Alaska last August.  This is my husband's favorite picture and I was playing with it and had just created a version in black & white.  There wasn't a lot of areas to color, but using Tim's technique of coloring with Distress Inks, I added yellow on the bow of the ship, a red stripe, stormy sky blue in between cloud breaks and some green on the sides of the ship.  The color is subtle, but the overall tag is striking...and it's my favorite tag ever!  Have a wonderful week!
