Copic Creations Challenge ~ Reading!


Ahoy maties!    It’s August 1st and time for a new Copic Creations Challenge … finally!   We took the last two weeks off and it seems like it’s been forever since we’ve had a new challenge!!    This week we’ve teamed up with an amazing, award-winning author and children’s book illustrator ~ Elizabeth Dulemba

Elizabeth features a weekly newsletter that includes LOTS of adorable FREE reading images.   So I hope you will join us for this challenge.   We’re hoping to stress the importance of reading during the summer break for all those “bored” kids out there!      This free image is called Pirate Poetry and he’s been made into a book gift card holder for one of my grandsons. 



After a little research on the Internet, I found such fun sentiments for reading, that I HAD to make another READING project for our challenge, this time a book mark . . .



I’ll be back later today to add all the links and details on these two projects!   I just finished the post for the Copic Creations challenge and I’m pooped!    In the meantime, lots of details on this challenge can be found on the Copic Creations Challenge blog HERE

Read any good books lately?



I had never really thought about this before   . . .   but what else would you expect a fairy to be reading??!     🙂     

How’s that for an ohhhh soooo cute fairy?    AND, it’s even better  ~  She’s a free image!  

My dear, extremely talented  friend,  Jami Bova, alerted me to an amazing children’s book author/illustrator’s blog with tons of totally adorable FREE images.   She includes holidays, seasons … lots of “fun stuff”.     The author’s name is Elizabeth O. Dulemba and talk about talent!   Wow.    You better see for yourself . . .  COLORING PAGES.



As soon as I spotted this cutie pie Reading Fairy, I knew I HAD to color her.   And, I also knew she was a definite purple fairy ~ my absolute favorite color.    

She was colored with Copics, highlighted with a little Star Dust Stickles, cut out and mounted with dimensionals to cardstock cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilites Large Deckled Rectangle die.   The DP is from the Basic Grey wisteria 6×6 paper pad, which includes plenty of purples.

So, be sure to take a peek at these beautifully illustrated images ~  I will definitely be visiting this site again!   🙂
