Cute-A-Saurus For Sure!

 
Halloween is coming really soon and the last time I made a wobbler candy holder, It was with a cute little dragon boy image.  Now my children are older and of course don't trick or treat any more but I have 7 year old twin boy and girl neice and nephew in the family and I gave them their candy pack with the dragon boy on it yesterday and she says " Aunt Tammy" I'm a girl!  

Well, I just had to make another candy box with a Halloween girl image and what better image to use than this ADORABLE long haired image called CUTE - A - SAURUS MiRan image!!

She is just too cute with her little nails painted pink and she's kicking up a cute little candy begging storm too!   I made her approximately 4" tall, cut down the wobbler because she's a bit thinner that the other image used and added a button and pearl that makes the project a bit more feminine than the other!  I hope this inspires you to make a Halloween candy holder for your self?  

If you'd like to see a tutorial on the project, visit my YouTube channel here!

Presents All Around!


Happy Thursday everyone!  It's Tammy Louise sharing a special little project I've made with a perfectly sized canvas and easel set I found in Hobby Lobby.   I wanted to make a gift that would set on either a little shelf or right next to a jewelry box on a little girls dresser!  

I like this second colored easel with the Derwent Inktense pencils better than the Shop Till You Drop easel I colored with Ranger Distress because the colors pop a bit more but the soft look of the Distress Ink is beautiful as well.  I guess it's all what each artist prefers!  


The Candi Bean images have fabulous flowing hair to color, but those adorable faces with a great amount of room for the cheeks is my favorite part!  This image has an adorable little friend sharing his package with Penny and he is simply adorable as well. 

I used some white ink to offset the hair piece and some glitter to bring a sparkle to the project too!  Great fun to color!  I sealed it with Krylon workable Fixitive and placed the canvas on the easel!  Easy Peasy!  I hope you get inspired to work with canvas as these images work perfectly with it!


INGREDIENTS: 
Penny's Presents Candi Bean Image
Canvas and easel set from Hobby Lobby

 MEDIUMS: 
Derwent Inktense water color pencils for Penny's Presents
Ranger Distress Ink on Shop Till You Drop


 EMBELLISHMENTS: 
WOC flowers
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon

 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Act as if what you do makes a difference . . . . It does!

Autumn Mindy and Annie Together to Create


  It's Monday friends!  The start of a new week means I wanted to start getting inventive with my Miran projects!  I'm sure you all noticed the our MiRan combined some images of her own just the other day and she inspired me!

To start with, I wanted a deep rich tone on the stylish Loving Autumn Amy image.  She has that tiny wast line and those groovy puffy sleeves on her sweater!  She's got a pair of great white boots and a beautiful flowing scarf!

Then there's Autumn Mindy!  That's her in the background, she has some Harry Potter round glasses and great big brown beautiful eyes!  Her hair is short and sassy and the bow around her neck is so luxurious in pink!  Combining the autumn set of images was simple but aloud a perfect gap' for the sentiment, CREATE! I think that puts this project into words perfectly!  I hope it inspires you to find two or even more than two images and get to using the MiRan tools her Etsy store can provide for you to get creative!
