ShinHan Markers.....

Have any of you tried the ShinHan Markers? This is my first time coloring with them. They are great! A wonderful alternative to Copic's if your just starting your collection or if you already have Copic's a great add on. The price isn't outlandish at $4.30 each. I need to learn my color combo's and how to stay in the lines better. But not to bad for a first try. Practice makes perfect!

The cute image is a new CC Designs image Brigitta Blowing Hearts I'm currently making into a kit for the store. I just need to cut out all the parts. I spent today loading s bunch of new TwinklingH2O's into the store. I can't wait to share some projects with those.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!

February Monthly Kits...

I managed to finally finish the February Water Coloring Monthly Kit. I redid it three times.. First I didn't like the pink paper i had picked, then I didn't like the doily, cause I used it last month... But now I Love it. I think the water coloring turned out perfect.

And then there's the February Copic Coloring Monthly Kit. I've been wanting to use this cute Tilda since I got it. Isn't she adorable? I love how she's sitting on the edge of the three circles. Oh and I gave her red hair... Sassy!! One of the new tones I was trying out. 

You can find both of these over at Heather's Hobbie Haven. Don't forget to look around while your there I decided to have a Kit Sale so I can make room for all the wonderful new kits I have planned. I'm running out of room on my wall to store the old ones. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your having a fabulous day!

I thought I would stop in and share another hair page I finished up. I'm moving out of the blonde hair tones. I must really like those cause I have the most of those. But today I have a brunette tone. I think it turned out pretty good. 
If you like to make your own pages I used a Saturated Canary image by Krista Smith that can be found HERE.

Hair Coloring...

 I was playing around in Paint Shop Pro last night and made these cute coloring pages. I have this big pile of post it notes laying around with different hair colors I've seen and liked or wanted to try. So I thought I would start putting them down on paper. Make a little flip book I can look through. I really like how these two turned out. Completely different from what I usually use for hair color. But now that I've seen them I'm going to use them. You can find the digital image I used over at Saturated Canary.

Do you have a favorite hair color?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Holiday Hugs...

Have you seen this cute new Penny Black stamp? It's called Holiday Hugs. This is one of my new Seasonal Kits available over at Heather's Hobbie Haven. This one is colored with Ranger Distress Inks, but I colored it in Copic's too.

The coloring makes them both look different. I love that about different color mediums. Maybe I should break out my Prisma pencils and give them a go. Well not today. I've got to go do my How To video for tomorrow post.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Ragged Angel...

One for me. I colored up a couple of images while watching TV a few days ago. This cutie is by Mo Manning. Isn't she adorable(Ragged Angel)? I love her whole outfit, very old fashion looking. there's another one where the girl is holding a bird (Urchin with Bird). I think I'll color her next. The paper is from the scrap pile. Just dug around until I found some that went together. Even the flowers, heart and border came from there.

I used Paula's trick for adding glitter. I had to hunt all over her blog Paper Possibilities to find it. I finally found it in the November posts. I knew it was a while ago. I keep looking at that bottle of Glamour Dust thinking why did I buy that? Now I know. It's very glittery!!

Copics Used:

A Rosie Rabbit Gift...

Check out this fabulously fun paper by My Minds Eye - 12 Days of Christmas. I wasn't crazy about it at first, but I love how festive it looks with Rosie. I think the Martha Stewart Present Border punch gives it a little extra something. I have all these punches I never use. Shame on me! Rosie started out brown and I just wasn't thrilled with her so started over and made her gray. Much better. The brown was cute, just not what I wanted.

I'm off to water color. Thanks for stopping by. I hope your having a fabulous day!

Oh my I love this new Magnolias collection Sweet Christmas Dreams. This cute image is called Something For You. Isn't she adorable? There are three different Magnolia DooHickey dies too. Paris Nights, Spruce and Swirly Lace. They all look so pretty. I don't have these in the store yet, but I can be persuaded if three of you want one.

I have again used the Fancy Pants Saint Nick Collection for the paper. you can click on the picture for a closer view. Have you tried those new EK Success Slim Layering Punches? I just got in the Butterfly, Ornaments & Fall Leaf ones. I tried them out they are pretty awesome! I like how the Ornaments & Fall Leaf connect together. I even went over and grab the EK Success video to add to the page if you want to watch it.
