Feeling Creative

Well...I definitely go through cycles. One day feeling like I cannot make anything and the next not able to stop. Sometimes it doesn't come out quite the way I envsioned...but that is besides the point. LOL

Today I made a couple of different things in between doing other stuff. The first is from my SS (Wilbur) she sent me a bunch of different images and this lady was one of them. I colored her with my Prismas and some mineral spirits...I cannot find my stubs so I used a paint brush. Seemed to work okay. Then on the inside I stamped...I need my fairy godmother. She reminds me of my grandmother who passed away several years ago.
I shouldn't mention this...but I had a lot of problems making this card. :) My SU inkpad fell apart on me...and while trying to put it back together I became covered in hands, my shirt...yikes...and even though I cleaned my hands I still managed to get ink on the white I printed out the hello to cover it up...then on that paper I saw some ink I put the flower. I guess being messy helps my creativity. It gets me to add more layers.

Then while looking at the swap page (I am not supposed to be doing that)....I found a Fluffles Swap. Now I don't know about you but I cannot resist Fluffles. I didn't want to do fall or christmas since it is almost I picked my spring Fluffles. I used my Prismas for him too...but only used the mineral spirits on Fluffles...I left the flowers natural. This was a pretty easy swap. I only had to make 6. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the scallops and used SU paper. The colros don't all match 100% but I think it turned out nice.

I love this, she is too cute!! You are funny! I resemble all those mishaps that you had!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Bella's clothes are done with paper piecing. Just stamp on the paper, cut out and adhere.
