and you know it...make a card. You can clap your hands or stamp your feet but that won't get you entered into Challenge #43 at Pile It On. This week the theme is to "Make a Card That Expresses Happiness in Some Way".
This little Jellypark Friend looks pretty happy to me, that's probably because she's too young to know what creepy things could be lurking in that pile of leaves. I won't tell her if you don't.
My good buddy Maddy just picked up her first set of copics and that reminded me of how helpful tips can be, So if you're a new copic user you may be wondering how I colored those pants. Here's my tip: First there's B21 over the entire area, then a small edging of B23 around the left bottom side, then a slim line of B24 just around those edges, followed by going over the entire area with the B21 to blend the edges. Then I take E40 and color over the light areas. I don't remember exactly when or how I discovered that using E40 over the blue looks like faded denim but I do know it was a happy accident.
I wonder if there's a 12 step program for craft supplies.
