FOUR Posts In One Week and the "Followers" Widget Added

I'm so on the ball this week . . . four card posts, and I added the "Followers" widget to my sidebar. I'm starting to feel like a real blogger. Any day now someone will share the secret handshake with me lol 

I may have mentioned before that I have a few birthdays and anniversaries in September, so today's card is for an upcoming birthday. I colored this Kim Hughes owl with Copics and then took the white crayon still laying on my desk from the crayon resist technique used below to soften some of the browns a bit. I like the result. You just can't go back to the Copics after adding colored pencils or crayons or it will ruin the nib of the Copic. I used pop dots to layer the party hat and an additional layer for the pom pom. IRL it's very dimensional. The branch is a piece of a limb from a Spellbinders die.

As for the "Followers" widget . . .  I'm not exactly sure how it works, but apparently some people use is to keep track of blogs they visit regularly. Anyway, I'm on board, so come along. 

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. I LOVE this card! I really like how the white crayon/pencil adds SOOOOO much depth to the brown. Just wonderful coloring!

  2. What a cute owl, and I usually am not too keen on owls! I love the diagonal stripes in the background too. Great job. I wish I could figure out how to get my picture on the widget although the silhouette might be the most flattering!

  3. Colleen, I am happy to find your blog. This owl is so cute and I love the idea of using the white crayon. Will be a regular follower.


Thank you for taking time to comment . . . it feeds my mojo!
