Coloring contest with K&C & SOG!!

Hi friends!
Its a perfectly fun day to share my take on coloring up Gardening Mae from Some Odd Girl. Some Odd Girl and Kit & Clowder have teamed up for a fun coloring challenge. You can check that out here.

I printed out Gardening Mae onto a 7 x 10 watercolor paper. I painted her with the watercolors. It was my first time doing this so I thought it would be easier at a much larger size.
I was right, because there is a learning curve to using any new medium.

I added in some prismacolor pencils atop the watercolors to add in more definition and to correct some rough spots in my watercolor. lol

Once I had it all finished, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with such a large painting. I decided to frame it and treat it similar to a mixed media canvas. Some of the embellishments and stamping is right on the background with Mae, and others are placed on the frame of the glass.

So, I hope you join us for the coloring challenge. You can get Gardening Mae for a low low price, but you have to get the code from Alyce at Kit & Clowder. Would love to see you join the challenge!

XOXO
Leah

Corner Ornate Mixer layout

My last project using the April Creating Made Easy kit from Clear Scraps.


I go into detail about the cool Corner Ornate Mixer included in the kit on the CME blog here.

So much fun. I just love all the vertical layers.

The chipboard rolling pin was perfect for part of the title with the included alphabets.
Have a perfectly yummy Monday, friends!

XOXO
Leah

New SOG Monthly challenge

The challenge this month for Some Odd Girl is as always Anything Goes, and the twist is Nothing Square.


I created this cute little guitar card in my Silhouette and colored up Guitarist Tia using my Prismacolor Pencils. I kept it simple as to focus on Tia and the cute little guitar shape.

Hope your weekend is a blast and nobody pulls any pranks on you! :)

15 years

Married to my love for 15 years yesterday.
The years have flown by.
I'm guessing that just means we've been having lots of fun.
These photos are from last April, we need to get some new ones taken.
He's the best man and husband I could ever dream of having in my life, and I am so lucky to have him. We've been together 22 years come November. 
I've been with his handsome man almost half my life.
It's awesome to be able to have a partner in crime and just someone you love to hang out with.
I still can't wait for him to come home from work everyday. <3

hehe I love you Doug. Thank you for being such a sweet husband and my best friend in life.
And here's a card I made for him for our anniversary.
I wrote there sentiment using my Silhouette Cameo, then colored it in with a gel pen.
I colored the Raccoon Burglar from Some Odd Girl with Prismacolor Pencils.
You can see all the March releases from Some Odd Girl - here.
XOXO
Leah
