Fight Like A Girl Chemo Bag

Hi everyone! 
I am back today with a very special project. 
I have made a chemo bag for my little sister. She was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. 
Her chemo treatments will start on the 31st of this month. 

The idea behind the bag, is that she can carry items to keep her busy during her chemo appointments. 
She got lots of Adult coloring books and coloring mediums before she had surgery.
 I'm sure it will be stuffed full of that! 

I was able to put this beautiful KennyK Stamps image on the bag by printing it, coloring it, scanning it into my computer and then printing it out on an iron on transfer and then ironing it on. 

I colored the image with Copic markers.

Here's a picture of the iron on transfers I used. 

I painted ribbons and an inspiring word on each pocket.

While making this project, I learned that it is better to take a picture of the colored image than to scan it into the computer. When I scanned it, it whitewashed the colored image. That doesn't happen when I take a picture of an image and then print it out. 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great night!

Fluffy Besties On the Beach!

Hello Bestie friends! I am so excited to share today's project with you! 

I made a mixed media canvas using FluffyBeach Babe Besties
When I saw this image I immediately thought of me and my best friends. 

I colored the image using Copic markers. You see that background?!?! Yep, I did that too! With the help of Kit and Clowder online coloring classes. I LOVE their classes! I have learned sooooo much from them! I highly recommend them for anyone wanting to learn how to color. 

I wanted to make something special with THIS image for my besties =)  canvases were perfect! I colored the image, did the background and then took it to an office supply store to have it copied. The copy turned out great! You can hardly tell the difference between the copies and the original.  

I used lots of fun stuff on these. I love playing with mixed medias. 
(not pictured...3 different blue paints, Copics and corrugated cardboard)

Here's a couple more shots of one of the canvases. 

These images are perfect for so many different crafts/projects.
Check out the My Bestie Shop to find your favorite Besties!
