1. I talk to much
2. I would smuggle in plastic wear into mid-evil times if I ever go

Didn't turn out as envisioned. I was going for a lisa frank leopard print ... oh well
4x6 index card
Cra z art markers
Misc hi lighters
Dollar tree gel pen
Sakura gellie roll pen white
All i did was doodle with the markers funky shapes and outline with black gel pen and stippled
Ok so these were easy peasy pillows. I have a tutorial coming on my youtube channel in a little bit.
This us for a colab challenge. Make a summer or 4th of july decore piece for 10 dollars or less.
The 3 pillow set was just at the limit. I used 6 dollar tree place mats and a 4 dollar pillow from walmart. I cut it open to use the stuffing. These were sewn on a sewing machine All other materials i have.
The pillows are reversible
The bandana pillows cost a out 6.50. Its a start to a 4th of july trio. If you had 3 pillows to recycle then this could be done under 10 bucks.
.i used a pillow form because the bandana was thin. The pillow form came from walmart.
I will post the video when it becomes available

1 4x6 index card
Objects to trace shapes
Dollar tree permanent markers aka alcohol markers (any marker that bleeds thru paper will work)
Ultra fine sharpie black
Sakura gelly roll white
I flipped the card and colored shapes on the back. Yes the back. My cards have lines so I colored on the side with lines.
If you didn't know there is a yearly I-cad project going on. I-cad aka index cards.
Im posting this via the app so I don't know if the link will work. You may have to copy and paste.
I just started and working to do 61 for the next two months. Maybe not 1 day maybe a few a day skip a day ha ha
The first weeks prompts were not my style. Sun rise ... ugh ... thats something you snooze thru.
This one is actually a sun set at disney world at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom.
I included the reference photo.
Supplies I used
1 4x6 index cards
Jane Davenport water colors neutral pallet
Water color brush
Ultra fine tip sharpie markers red, orange, yellow and black
Sharpie fine point black
Target gel pens
Sakura gellie roll white gel pen
Cra z art markers bright pack
Ok so I messed up. I should NOT of outline the sun with the ultra fine black sharpie
The rest I'm good with lol (it looks better up close and personal)
I painted the background with the water color paints then used the ultra fine marker to draw where I wanted black lines.
Oh why did I outline that sun? I2m ok with the clouds. LOL
(The lady across the hall 2 doors down sure makes a lot of noise eating her chips and she is supposed to be on a diet ... snort)
Then I used the fine sharpie the trees and bushes silhouette.
I used the fine line to add details.
I used the other markers and pens to help with waves and try to fix that sun. Nothing doing.
(I wish she hurry up and finish those chips they are getting on my one nerve)
When I started this one I had no idea where it was going to end up. I winged it basically.
1 3x5 index card
2 4x6 index card
Jane Davenport bright water color pallet
Water color brush
The Food network magazine
Black gel pen dollar tree
Black ultra fine sharpie marker
Sakura gelly roll pen white
Cra z art markers super bright bonus pack (12 markers instead of 10)
Staples glue stick
Dollar tree foam squares
Small paper trimmer
Starting with a 3x5 index card
I first used the Jane Davenport paints for the background.
I then flipped thru a food magazine and found an ad for canned pineapple. That was the pineapple inspiration.
I googled pineapple clip art and sketched it loosely with a pencil.
I used cra z art water color markers and colored in the pineapple
I hi-lighted with a black dollar tree gel pen then used an ultra fine sharpie and white gelli roll pen
I glued the pineapple ad to the card with a glue stick
I used the cra z art markers, sharpie marker and gellie roll white pen on the ad to make it work with my doodle
I made a mat (using a paper trimmer) from a 4x6 index card and doodled a frame around it with the sharpie marker
I used the glue stick and glued the pineapple 3x5 picture to a 4x6 index card base.
I used dollar tree double stick foam squares that I cut down around the pineapple picture (on the 4x6 base) and placed the mat on top.
I like it!
Fun fact ... while the pineapple image is trendy and I like it, I actually do not like the taste of the fruit.

My morning ...
AJ woke me up 18 minutes before the final alarm (thats 2 slaps of the snooze button)
He had to potty. Apparently its customary to bark while you potty.
I want my 16 minutes so I climb into bed. Banner literally sits on my face.
I blink my 16 minutes are up.
I need to put Singapore up to feed Banner and give him his meds. Singapore gets sick if he eats canned food.
Singapore takes one look at me and splits behind the couch. I yell im not going to go thru this again. I might have imagined it but I think they laughed at me.
Honestly who was I kidding of course I was going to have to go thru this again
I moved furniture out of the way I tilted couches and he still eluded me. (Note to one self sweep under the couch)
Remember Singapore is not the one taking meds.
I spy his black tail running down the hall and knew I was in trouble.
I made it to my bed room and it was confirmed he went under the bed.
The only part of me that fits under this bed is my very short arm.
The bed is very low to the ground.
I reach to grab him he moves to the other side
I go to that side he moves back to the other side
I might have said a few bad words
I pulled the mattress off the bed (sure did) the corner went into the dog water bowl. Stuff is being knocked off my book shelves.
Mean while dogs still barking and Banner was looking at us like we were nuts.
I pull the box spring up (im old school)
Cat makes a mad dash and is cornered. I pick him up and stick him in the laundry room
I feed Banner. He only eats a little.
I prepare his meds
He takes one look at it and makes a mad dash down the hall and you guessed it under the bed he went
Im yelling at myself .... WHEN WILL I EVER LEARN TO SHUT THAT DOOR (okay i probably ... won't confirm but probably said more bad words)
Im exhausted before 730 am
(Ps Banner was easier to fish out then Singapore ... no need to dunk the mattress back into the dogs water bowl)
