Hi all! I have survived Irene here in CT and managed to not lose power! I’ve been hunkered down all morning catching up on crafty blogs and challenges and have a few I would like to share with you today. First up…Two Dresses Studio! Trudi has some fabulous creations on her site that are truly inspiring! Even more inspiring is that she has taken on the venture of “The Butterfly Effect” where she is collecting handmade butterflies for “The Butterfly Project” hosted by the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas. The mission is to collect 1.5 million handmade butterflies which will be used to create a mural to memorialize the 1.5 million children who were lost in the Holocaust. You can read all about how to get involved here. I recently received my Copic certification and am totally hooked on Copic markers! I’ve just joined the Color Me Creative Challenge group and the challenge this week is “Winged Things”. Here’s my project….
This butterfly is near and dear to my heart! Not only because he is going to be a part of something amazing but also because he is illustrated and colored with Copic Markers based on a real butterfly that has visited my family and I daily all summer! We have named him “Spot” to read more about him check out this post. I recently finished another project where I altered a glass table with this Copic Colored Butterfly illustration if you would like to check it out click here.
As soon as things are cleaned up around here (lots of trees down) “Spot” will be flying off to the Holocaust museum to join the others and help spread a message of love!
Thanks for coming by today I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments
