This is the first time I have joined in the the "Art Creations Friday" Challenge. You are to take the image they post and create your own project/art with it. This is what I have come up with today. I hope you like it. Her hands were holding a bird, but I switched it out for some hand drawn flowers I made. These are really the first hand drawn images I have made on my wacom tablet. It was fun trying and I can not wait to practice practice practice :) These challenges are so good for that and are really forcing me to learn how to use my tablet. Anyway, thank you for stopping in today. I hope to stop by and check out all the entries shortly.

Mixed Media Monday "Wings", The Three Muse Challenges "Air" and Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #37
This card /envelope set covers three challenges this week. …
Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge – MMSC37 (shown)
Mix Media Monday – Theme this week is “Wings”
The Three Muse- Theme this week is “What IS in the air”
So, now I want you to meet “Dusty”, the clown with flying elephant envy. Ever since Dusty joined the Circus, he has always wanted to fly like “Bo Bo” the flying pink elephant. At first he was not sure if Bo Bo was a figment of his imagination, but quickly realized that even when he was not drinking his cup of “clown cocoa on the rocks” he seemed to still hover. Dusty set out on a mission to figure out a way to fly asking the trapeze artists and tightrope walkers advice, but to no avail. He came up with an idea to fashion his own wings. Now Dusty is hoping that Bo Bo and he will be best of friends. Even if his wings don’t work, he always has the back up of his cup of “clown cocoa on the rocks” He will be flying in his own mind, at least till the morning hangover kicks in. LOL
I am still very green with the Mixed Media graphics art end of creating and will have to really try and link up my graphic resources in the future. I have just been saving things I come across and have to figure out a system for giving credit when due. I used my wacom tablet for the graphics, printed my picture on glossy paper, layered the images and then used my “priscillastyles” envelope kit to make my envelope.
I hope you all are having a great week. I am excited about mine. I will be taking my Copics Certification class on Friday, then going to CHA on Sunday. Should be for a very fun week filled with crafts and friends Thanks for letting me have a little bit of FUN with you today.

"Something NEW with WATER"This is also made using the sneak peek for “The 3 Muse” Challenge posting on Wednesday. The theme for the 3 Muse is “Water” In honor of my newest friend over at the 3 muse (Hi Marie, thanks for all your help), I thought I would use this image ;) Three beauties just basking in the sun! I am a vintage print lover and found this wonderful image of 3 women sitting on some rocks by the ocean, so I am hoping it is acceptable.
I have plans to dabble in all the different styles of the arts I am coming across on my newest journey. Learning all these new styles and techniques is becoming a wonderful and oh so enjoyable journey for me. I would love for you to follow along with me and would love to do the same for you.
I would love to hear your thoughts, comments and anything you could share to help me on my way through this new world.
We are only limited by our own imagination!
