Another sketch, a little creative license, and combining two digi images from Shirleys2Girls. I love this image from the new Indulgence collection DG 110-Break time and have always loved this image, now released as a Digi #137-I think there make be a few rubber stamps left of this dog image, too and at 50%, you can't beat it!
Now, I could have used Adobe Photoshop to place the dog over this image but since I decided to paper piece, it didn't much matter! I did a little fussy cutting-takes me back to my paper doll days. At this point, it is unlikely that I'll ever outgrow my childhood pleasures. Actually, it saddens me that so few children seem to participate in these simple pleasures.
I used my Copics to color the images. The papers are from ki memories.
Can you see my new watermark? Needless to say, I am not practiced in application. I know I can make a watermark but at $2.00, I was happy to purchase this from Karen Giron.
Beyond my crafting, I have been busy today preparing for this anticipated snow storm which is underway as I type. The expectation is over two feet of snow and blizzard conditions. My fear is the loss of power primarily because of my mother's needs. She receives oxygen from a machine that is powered by electricity and though we have enough tanks to get us through the weekend if need be, the cold is another problem-no fires to warm us in this household as they can literally be explosive. We do have emergency arrangements if necessary but the idea of moving my mother and the dogs (gosh, I hope they are invited, too!) is not a pleasant prospect! We are on the power company's emergency list, but they have already called to warn us to make other arrangements as they can make no promises in these situations.
For now, we have power, and I am making use of it! If you don't hear from me for a while, you'll probably guess that we're without!
