A little something from the Craft room this rainy weekend.

 This was a tutorial I did using a Gel pen to draw then water color paints by Crayola Crayon. Love it!

 Cards I made for Soldiers' Angels by scanning my painting then stamping them with a sentiment.

 Little flowers painted on plain white paper using Prima watercolor paints. Still trying to get used to them. Like the Crayola Crayon watercolors the best so far.
 Some textured pattern paper that I had. Used the back to try painting on.
Little flowers I painted after drawing them with a fine point permanent marker. Another cutie!

Busy summer winding down.

It has been an extremely busy summer so far...but it seems to be winding down a bit.
I was able to get into the craft room for a couple of hours.
Below are a few of the things I finished.
Excuse the photos...Hubby gave me an IPod touch so that I could take pictures and videos while in the craft room.
I am not real happy with the outcome of the photos so far. 
I am going to go back to my Canon. It takes much better pictures.

A little story for my mother along with my original watercolor paintings.

My boss was given a little book for his new grandson.
This little books was written by Nancy Tillman for a child. I did all the watercolor illustration.
It was so cute and moving that I want to adapt it to something for my mother.
The credit all goes to Nancy for the writing of the original works, I just changed it for my mother who will be 84 years young and was recently put in Hospice care.
It makes no difference who, what, when or where we go in life, or mother is and always will be the core of our being.
Weather we get along with them always or not, the thought of losing that piece of your life and never being able to talk to her again is powerful and humbling.
I know I am the only one to go through this part of my life, but not matter how old you get, your mother will always be your mommy, through good times or bad, the older you get, the more you understand that.
I love you Patricia Ann (Fox) Byrd and know that I am blessed to have you for my mother.
God Bless you always and forever!

Weekend project: Notecard sets.

I made four sets of note cards. One set I just used some Crayola Crayon watercolors to paint over a set of thank you note cards that I purchased at Michael's.
I used some pretty papers to make two more sets. For the fourth set I used copies of some of my paintings!  I love how they came out! Enjoy!!!!

A few cards for our troops at Soldiers' Angels

Some cards for our troops. About 150 to go out this week.

Painted this pinapple for my granddaughter.

I saw this at a store yesterday. It was on a wooden sign. The cost was $49.00. I liked it so much and wanted to get it for our Bella, but was not going to spend $50.00 on it. So I came home and painted one for her!  I like it a LOT!!! #ldlcreationsllc #watercolorpaintings #crayolacrayonwatercolor

Some cards from the craft room.

A few cards ready for our troops over at the Soldiers Angels. Box of 100+ ready to send out soon.

This little cutie was an up cycle from a cute little "Thank you " I received from my Grand Niece. It was so cute I just could not help myself. It had to be up cycled and not just tossed!

Some little note cards using Molly and Rex paperpad and cutouts.

I made a set of note cards for my sister .
She is a little flashy and shiny like the paper and ephemera, they would fit her personality well.
I found the 6x6 paper pad at Michael's and knew right away that I wanted to make note cards out of them. 
Unfortunately the sparkles fall off so I can not use them for the cards I make for our troops, so my sisters get them instead.  Enjoy!

Little Fox for my mother.

My mother requested a little fox paining for her room. 
I tried several "REAL" fox attempts that were less than FOXY!!!
I finally went cute and I love her!

Faries for my niece.

 Fairy#1 was not happy with her for my niece, but my 9 year old granddaughter loved her so she will go to my Bella.
This one was better suited for Laura Jean so off in the mail she will go to Wisconsin to enjoy the company of my niece and grand nephews.
