Little Mermaid

Ariela Mermaid (5)

Morning all. It’s time for some Conie Fong inspiration today and thanks to some fabulous colouring of mermaids in the Conie Fong Art & Design FB Group and Kit & Clowder FB Group I have been inspired to colour a mermaid myself..

I introduced Miss 4 to the Little Mermaid a while back and just like me it has become one of her favourite Disney films, so at her request this one had to be coloured to look just like her:

This image is Ariela Mermaid.

The papers are from a more masculine/boyish paper pad but I thought the colours and patterns looked a lot like sea…

Jaffa the Giraffe

Morning All. Have you seen the fabulous Children’s challenge we have running? If not you can find all the details here.

Unfortunately Mr 7, Miss 4 and I started the Summer holidays with some nasty sore throats so we didn’t get chance to join in at the start of the challenge, but we’re back to crafting now and here is a card Elliot (Mr 7) made for his cousin for her birthday.


He used Jaffa Giraffe, but he wanted a big and little Giraffe inside a heart so I merged two images and shrunk one smaller before printing and he drew the heart by hand.

Thanks for stopping by
