Out of This World and some Whiff of Joy!
I love a man in a uniform! Can't resist them. But the thought of an astronaut sends me over the edge! When I was little, I remember sitting outside with my dad at night and I would lay at the edge of our small porch and gaze up at the sky and try and count the stars. Every child has done that. But I was lucky to be born in a time when the space program was just formulating and I was so excited about the possibility of space travel. How exciting to be off of earth and out in the vast outer space! I went as far as to write to my congressman and ask how I got into the space program. He wrote back and I'm the proud owner of some of the original NASA promotional information that was sent to those inquiring minds who wanted to know about getting into the space program. Well, actually my mom still has it. That and my Chatty Cathy doll, but that's another story! I wanted to go up so badly and still would love it. Every space movie that comes out, I see. Love it!
Space Ian from Summer's great store, Roses on Paper, is from The Greeting Farm line (gosh, I adore this line of stamps!) and I had to make him up! I used a glitter pen around his shield and used Glossy Accents to cover his face and I love how it turned out. Looks like you could knock on his shield and never touch his face! I added a moon and embossed the star background to give it a bit of dimension. I colored him with my copics and love how he came out!
And then there's Spring, on of my favorite seasons! I love when everything goes from white, grey and brown to green, pink, lilac, and yellow! Here is Willow with Flower Basket from the new Spring Collection of Whiff of Joy. I've had her done but haven't had the opportunity to put her together yet. I was organizing my craft things and found the small pack of paper from Making Memories called Sabrina and it was perfect. I colored Willow with copics and used Glossy Accents on her band and isn't the Flower Soft just perfect for her basket? I used Bella Baubles on the corners and some ribbon from my stash. I wanted to keep her as non fussy as possible and just show her off!
It feels good to be back and I hope everyone has a great day, be in dreaming of space or of the new spring season we're trying to get to!
