Prima Princess Sydney - Copics and Prismacolors

👉    “I’ve done my best, and I begin to understand what is meant by ‘the joy of strife’. Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing.” Anne of Green Gables

Hi Everyone,

Celebrating  my birthday with my darling family last week was such a pleasure and I feel truly privileged and blessed.  Now I'm  eager for another year of creative fun.  Coloring has been my obsession since I was a very little girl so "adult coloring" is absolutely blissful for me. These gorgeous lady images call to me from my craft room, begging to be beautified with colorific brilliance and adorned with dazzling, glittery accents.  

I colored lovely Sydney with copics in bright primary shades and then added some detail touches with my Prismacolor pencils.  I've been watching some YouTube videos while on my treadmill lately and have learned some really good coloring tips from some of my favorite paper crafters.  I would highly recommend the YouTube/treadmill thing!  It's a very delightful twofer.

As a birthday gift from my husband, I ordered several Spellbinder frames in sizes that would fit these larger images.  If you don't already buy your own birthday gifts, why not???  I'd much rather have die cuts than jewelry or new shoes.  

So... Copics, Prismacolor pencils, silver Spellbinder frame, glittery bow and rhinestone...that's it!  This Prima Princess steals the show. 

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
