Fish Kiss!

I have been sickly and gross feeling for a week and a half now, so it seems I've been much less prolific than usual.  I did manage to get the Daisy Yellow Prompt6ix challenge done, so here's my page:

"Fish Kiss"

This time, the prompts were:
  1. Leaves -Pattern in the scrapbook paper hair
  2. Job -It's in the quote in black, which says "It's your job to be yourself in a world that's full of everybody else."
  3. Brushes - The girls face is completely painted in acrylics (I didn't use my trusty number 2 or my Prismacolors (as is my custom) at all for this!)
  4. The Mail -Part of the quote is cut from junk mail
  5. Textures -The hair is cut and layered pieces of scrapbook paper and the red background paint is actually crackled, although it's hard to tell in the photo
  6. Red -I know it may be hard to see, but I did use some red in making this page. :)
My favorite thing on this page is the two fishes, which are from a scrapbook paper I've had FOREVER... literally the first piece of scrapbook paper I ever bought...and I have been in love with those fishes for a long time.  I especially like the bottom fish, because it looks like he's giving her a little kiss!  So I think that's the name of this piece!

I am having a lot of fun with the challenges and am always on the lookout for other challenges, so if anybody knows of some good ones, I'd love to hear about them!


  1. I absolutely LOVE this! Great job!

    1. Thanks very much for the compliment and for coming and checking out my blog! I am so happy the girls at the fb group found me. It's been so encouraging to hear such nice things said and to see the beautiful pieces that everyone makes. You just make my heart sing!


I'd love to hear from you!
