Fun Halloween Background + Video

Halloween!  What fond memories - from my childhood and when Lauren was little we threw the funnest Halloween parties, complete with games and trick or treating.  Last night, Lauren told me that Louisa is going to be a skunk this year.  I'll have to see if I can put together a skunk Halloween card!

These critters aren't skunks, but they are adorable!  I had a lot of fun coloring them.  The mummy rabbit is so cute!

The background on this card is really cool!  It's basic distress ink blending with a layer of microfine warm highlights glitter on top.  I've got a video showing this technique and a few tips along the way.

Here's the video:

With Lauren getting Louisa's skunk costume from Pottery Barn Kids, I don't have to make a Halloween costume this year.  I wouldn't mind making one, but I'm kind of glad that's one thing to cross off my list.  What are your Halloween plans this year?  

Thank you for stopping by!

Easy Watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens

I've walked past my Zig Clean Color brush pens a lot since the last time I used them.  Every time Ii'd think "I've got to get those out again."   Well, I finally did. 

This pretty hummingbird seems like a good reason to get them out!

I still hesitated.  I'm such a novice with these pens.  

But, I still did a video!  You can watch it below.

Want to see what else I did last weekend?

(Out of the blue.)  "Grandma, I want a lion's head."  Okay...  like the stuffed lion in your bedroom?  

"No." you want to draw a lion?

"No.  I want to wear it."  Okay...a lion mask?

"Yes, Grandma!"

Lots of concentration here!  She wore her lion mask almost all day.  It was a big hit!

Here's the Easy Watercoloring video:

So glad you stopped by!
