tiddly inks #64 goodbye summer hello fall

Hi again! I have been having busy trying to get ready for my daughter's birthday this coming weekend. So I am going to try to make this a quick post....

For this week's TI challenge we had to make something that says a fond farewell to the fun sun days of Summer and hello to the  gorgeous colors of Fall.

I used Bathing Beauty and colored her with Copics and added Glossy Accents on the inner tube and Stickles to the water. Her backdrop is made with a Memory Box stamp and I used my computer to make the faded text on it. The leaves are from Heartfelt Creations and colored with Twinkling H2O's, and Liquid pearls were added to them. My sentiment was made on the computer. The purple paper is a scrap from last Halloween and I distressed it with some white paint. The card itself was painted with acrylic paints and then I added some random stamping and did a little doodling on it.


I used Twisty Tree, but I can't figure out where it is in the shop. I colored it with Copics and sprayed some of Tim Holtz Color Wash on the background. Then I added some acrylics around the tree. The sentiment was made on the computer.

After making this I wondered what I would do with this card. And I thought I should just add it to my art journal because I probably won't give it to anyone. So I went to work...

I used some oil pastels to make the background. Then I used some white paint to distress it. Then I added some Heartfelt Creation leaves and Memory Box butterflies. I made some doodling and added some Stickle swirls. Then I added Bloom Little Lily which I colored with Copics and added Stickles to her. I also used Dandylion Pixie which I colored with Copics and used some flocking on the dandylion. I hand wrote the sentiment...I am trying really hard to like my penmanship. But the only way to like it is to keep working on it. Then I sewed in the card and added some Tim Holtz tape to cover the seam.

And I changed up the inside of the card. I used various paints and stencils. I also added Stickles around the tree.

I am loving my art journal. I should post some of my other pages that I have made...I will do it on a less crazy day.

Have a great weekend!!
