You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Goin' Fishin'

Hello everyone.  I won this Paper Crafting World digi at My Paper Crafting and I'm so glad I have a chance to use it so soon.

I just got this watermark from Digital Delights by loobylou.  I really like it but I struggle to put it in the phote each time; I'll get the hang of it soon.
I colored in the digi with distress markers used like watercolors on watercolor paper.  The cattails and grass, and the fish, were cut out from the cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  The oval behind the fish was cut from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge.  I just used my Brother labelmaker for the words.
I am entering this in 2 challenges: Digi Desserts Fridaze at My Paper Crafting and My Sheri Crafts where the theme is Time to Go Fishing.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please click on the challenge name to see all the entries in these great challenges.

Happy Creating
Rae Ann
