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.

A Disney Challenge at Exploring Cricut

Welcome to this week's challenge at Exploring Cricut: use a Disney character in a card, layout, or project.  The only cartridge I have with Disney characters is Tinker Bell and Friends; I love the old-Disney cartoon style they have.
The Disney cuts can be difficult because of the very tiny pieces in them.  I cut Tink at 3 inches which was much to small for some of the cutouts so I used Distress Markers for eyes, mouth, and hair ribbon.  To get her skin tone the way I wanted I cut her in white and used Copic markers E00 and E11 to color and shade in shadows.  Pixie wings have to be special so I always cut out the filigree cut, trim it to fit on the wings and then use glitter glue to sparkle them up.  The 1 inch butterfly came from Create a Critter but everything else is from Tinker Bell & Friends.  I think she is so cute!

Please, join our challenge at Exploring Cricut with a Disney character of your own.  And, please, continue to check out Exploring Cricut each day for inspiration from out design team.

Happy creating.
Rae Ann


  1. Love your card! Great job on Tink, she is so hard to get right!

  2. She is so cute! Great idea to use Copic for skin. I agree it is hard to find just the right skin tone paper. TFS!
