Mello Yellow

What does a stretched canvas, yellow acrylic paint and some stamps have in common.....

Not this!  Sookie is such a good kitten, so mello!

I'm feeling Pink today

This week with the Summer of Color Challenge with Twinkle Twinkle little Star blog.  I decided to make some cards with this pretty Hummingbird stamp I recently purchased.  I see this as a complete set of cards to give to a friend sometime.  We are our own worst critic and so I see lots of mistakes, but I'm posting anyway!  Hope you're feeling as pink as I am today!

Working it to the finish

The next steps on the journey to the green summer of color project....
 This is a graphic from The Graphics Fairy.  I took the image and transferred it to my gesso painted canvas.

This project is for my little brown eyed girls 25th birthday present.  She's always been interested in fashion.  Even as a toddler she was always changing her clothes.   Once I found her standing on a chair looking at the clothes in my closet.
"What are you doing, Heather?" said Mommy.
"I looking at your pretty clothes, Mommy." exclaimed the little brown eyed girl.
At three years old she wanted her first sewing machine.  She got one, it used markers to mark paper, but worked just like a sewing machine.  It looked similar to this:

 For this color challenge I decided to use it as a jumping off point for a birthday gift for my little girl.  First I added the graphic(above), then I added collage paper.  I found some vintage patterns at a local thrift and used the paper to add some personal touch to her picture.

Why is it

Why is it that everytime you go to snap a picture a cat jumps into the frame?
I'm very excited about next week's color challenge on this blog site: http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com/
Sookie, the large kitten is excited too!  She can't wait to see what I'm gonna do with this!
