You Are A Blessing

I recently came across a group started by Mindy @ My Creative Scoop. Such a supportive group of artists, and Mindy is incredibly helpful and personable. I mentioned that I wanted help with backgrounds, and she referred me to the background tutorials posted on her blog.  I found one by Deborah @ Deborah's Shining Cards on how to color an underwater scene. So HELPFUL! I also noticed that a dear friend had used this same tutorial on her blog, A Thousand Sheets of Paper.  Her work is an Encyclopedia of Copic Coloring! Anyway, I had a lot of help and a lot of fun coloring little Oceanessa and her Seahorse. She is from Sweet Pea Stamps, which, I understand, is no longer in business. For me, the practice is the fun - and the outcome can be so rewarding. Really appreciate the help I received on this project, and thank you for stopping by and visiting today! :)
