"Honey Do" List...

Now which "honey" out there wouldn't love this kind of list! I pulled some fun script sentiments and combined them in writing my "list".
I just love the fun colors in this Cosmo Cricket paper! Those pink on pink polka dots are wonderful!

A little note about my crocheted flowers....because I do a lot of publication stuff I am not willing to release my exact pattern for these flowers yet. If a magazine wants the rights to them I cannot publish them publicly here. Thank you for all your compliments and e-mails. There are a ton of great videos on youtube. That is where I got started!

Here is a close shot of my Honey do list.
I said I was going to share a few coloring hints and tips this week so here is a simple one to start you off.

Swipe over your sentiments with the same colors you use in your images to add cohesiveness to your design.

Sometimes you don't need to color the WHOLE object. A little amount of white space adds interest and highlight to your image. See that I only added color to the left side of my hive.

Here are the card deets:
Sweet Bee (Rummage Bin), Script Essential Expressions (Mona Lisa Moments) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso, Watermelon Adirondack (Ranger)
Girl Friday (Cosmo Cricket)
Copic Markers
Butter Spica Glitter Pen (Copic)
Air Brush System (Copic)

Crocheted Flower (Made by me)
Button (Sewing Stash)
Notebook Punch (EK Success)
Chipboard pieces (Cosmo Cricket)

Enjoy your day!
