New Challenge at The East Wind

Our new challenge starts today at The East Wind Challenge Blog with the theme of Make Mine Extra Sassy.  Let's see some images or sentiment with some attitude.  The team is using the gorgeous Aurora Summer Breeze which is the April Freebie from the newsletter.  Sign up to received yours on the Challenge Blog, top right.   I wanted to make a cover for my Art journal and was inspired by this gorgeous image and the quote from the Gecko Galz Beautiful Words collage sheet.

Here's a closeup.  She's colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  I colored her skin and hair first but couldn't decide on the dress and flower colors until I saw this lovely 6x6" page from the BoBunny Serenade pack.  The window and scalloped circle were cut with my Spellbinders Nesties.

Here's the quote from Gecko Galz.  I'm hoping this will inspire me and help me overcome my fears of art journaling (among other things.  LOL).  Be sure to visit the Challenge Blog to see my teamies makes with the gorgeous image.  Also, don't forget our Make It Krafty (coloring on kraft) FB Challenge that runs through April 17th.

Here's the important stuff:


  1. Donna, I am amazed by your coloring. So beautiful. Wish I could take lessons from you! You are so talented!!

  2. Cool. Its inspired me to hope that 2016 will be better than 2015. Thanks


Thanks for making my day!
