Feathers and Sandy Claws

Today is one of those days where my projects are on opposite sides of the spectrum. My first project is for A Day for Daisies, and the second is for Left of Center.
***If you are looking for my latest Stampendous post, please click HERE.

Isn't this the sweetest image? It's called Bird in Flight. The joy on this boy's face makes me smile. Our theme this week is "Add a Feather."

I colored the image with my Tombow markers, and I added the polka dots with my white Sakura pen. My feather was created with my Feather stencil from Dreamweaver. I outlined it with a black PITT pen, and then I used some watercolors to color it in.

I fussy cut the Bird in Flight image out and added it on top of my feather. I also added a sweet sentiment from Stampendous! and some drops of Platinum Liquid Pearls. Ink, more paper...layer, layer, voila!
Now....opposite end of the spectrum. This week's theme for Left of Center is "Based on a Song." We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles, and I decided to go with the Kidnap Sandy Claws song.

He's pretty creeptastic, huh? This guy was also colored with my Tombow markers. I used scratchy lettering for the "Sandy Claws" and a couple scraps of paper. It was a quick ATC, but I think he's pretty cool.

Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies Blog, as well as the Left of Center Blog. Lots of great projects to see! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holy cow!! I came over from the Stampendous blog hop, clicked on your name and was intrigued by "A Day For Daisies." I really loved "Bird in Flight," how sweet!

So, "Left of Center," what's that? Ok, when I say I was shocked, after scrolling down from cute and innocent little "Flight," I'm not blowing smoke here … total shock value!! WOW!! LOL!! I'm laughing at myself now, cause I certainly was NOT expecting your super creepy Santa!!

I'm so glad I stopped by! What an incredible artist you are! I'm awake now for sure! :-) Thanks so much for sharing your awesome talent!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
