Wisteria Sprite

I hope, for those in the northern hemisphere, that you’re all enjoying your summer.  And for those in the southern hemisphere, I hope you’re winter hasn’t gotten too cold yet.  Birrr!  I’m out of town enjoying the countryside as we travel across the states.  I’m sure by now I’m hearing the nagging “are we home yet?” comment from the kids.  LOL  Anyway, I wanted to share some projects but I only had one to schedule. 

For this project, I’ve used Mitzi Sato-Wiuff’s Wisteria Sprite from Sweet Pea Stamps and colored her on watercolor paper.  Her hair was was done with Polychromos pencils and the rest was done with Copic markers.  The pencils weren’t working very well for me and cramped up my hands.  So I switched to finish the rest with markers and even tried to get the background to look like watercolors.  Not sure if this was the end goal I was hoping for but I think it turned out none the less.

The tag stamp and chipboard tag accompaniment are from Make it Crafty and is always a great embellishment.  It’s the Happy Days Tab Sentiment.

Hope you enjoy this project and have a great week!


I’m excited to announce that I’ve been asked to guest for Flutter By Wednesday #175 today and I have a mini journal page to show off. The theme is to use your scraps! That should be an easy one for all of us… and remember to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your project too.

For this mini journal page I used Phunky Pharies “Cyd” from Sweet Pea Stamps which counted towards my “butterfly, fairy or angel” portion. I colored her in browns and blacks to match the neutral tones of the paper. It’s hard to tell in the picture but I gave her bright green eyes hoping for a pop of color. Unfortunately it’s a tad too small to qualify as a “pop”. 😀

The paper is actually two smaller pieces (so don’t look to hard) and the lace are small scraps I had left on the table. It’s hard to come by black lace in my area so I kept a hold of even the smallest pieces – including the 3″ section that is glued horizontally on the page. Hope you enjoyed this inspriation and thanks Danni for the invite! 😀
