Candy Time

I spent some quiet time coloring after hurricane Matthew moved north of my area, reflecting how lucky we are to have only some slight damage and limbs to clean up.

Today is a new day it is sunny and beautiful, no meteorological evidence that a hurricane was ever here, only a drive through the neighborhood can tell the tale!

I found a haggard little tree frog in my bathroom this morning, covered in lint and weary, I picked him up and he seemed he wanted to go to sleep, I cleaned him up of lint and his him in a wet little shrub to rest, such a cute little guy, just like the little mouse above!

I stamped and colored these on mixed media paper, it's smooth and thick and quickly becoming my favorite paper! I started with the idea of doing a shaker card, but in the end a dimensional window was just as fun!

I used copics to color, and the mixed media paper is perfectly suited to layers of blending!

The tags were made using SRM Live Life Halloween stickers and were tied to the window with natural twine 

I just love that pop of green don't you? Remember when Halloween was orange and black only? I love adding unexpected color to Halloween, like blue, or pink! 

Have a wonderful weekend friends, enjoy all the Autumn goodness you can!!!
