Saturday usually is a "have to do" day consisting of marketing, cleaning, and a whole list if other things that need to be done. I am still waiting for my fairy godmother to show up one day with that awesome magic wand. However, thanks to Georgia the ginormous German Shepherd, I can only sit and do crafts today. She can't get close enough to me....this resulted in me going airborne across the kitchen while trying to make dinner last night. My knee looks like an eggplant. So excited that Julie chose such a wonderful site for the inspiration challenge. I chose the mermaid theme. All the rooms were in these lovely shades of blues and purples. As usual, I had a major fail when trying to link to my inspiration-my technical ability remains below that of my dog. My mermaid and the water around her are done with one of my favs techniques which is color pencil blending. Then for Ky's Mix challenge, I used Kate Cranes gel press faux watercolor tutorial for the bg. I also colored the mermaid in colors that she uses a lot. Fabulous artist...i started following her on Pinterest. Thanks Ky for the link. Finally, for Lisa's love is in the air AT challenge, the inside of the card says "Just thinking about how much I love you". I made 2 of these at the same time. One without the sentiment for my stash, and the love one for my husband. TFL, Francie

Thank goodness for Georgia knocking you down (sorry about the knee) so you have some rest up time to pursue your art. This is a feast for the eyes France..I love these colors, too and your awesome faux wc bg (wasn't that fun) and your brilliantly colored mermaid..wow! Such a beautiful creation..I could sit and look all day!
This is so magical!!!! I really need to get in the habit of creating two cards at a time. I never have quite enough in my stash. This is stunning with the blue. I am going to check out the artist you mentioned. I just HATE hearing that you are injured. I sure hope it heals quickly for you. Hugs and get well wishes to you!!!

I'm sure Georgia did not mean to harm you but now you are crafting so I hope that makes it o.k. Your card is just awesome. Love the mermaid and all those blue and purples....liquid pearls, too. I wish I would make two of everything. Probably not in the cards for me. Ugh!

Sorry to hear about your fall, Francie, but at least you got some crafty time out of the deal - this is so fun, with the fabulous textures, the blues are gorgeous and that mermaid is magical!! Heal fast, my friend!
