my first La-La Land image and gettin' ready for EASTER!

oh my goomie, is it REALLY almost Easter? 2012 is well underway and i can barely catch my breath. i just hope it gets easier, because the year has gotten off to a very rough start. hanging in there though! and thank goodness for feral kitties eating in our laundry room! ;)

okay, so when i went to CHA, i got to meet the gorgeous Irina from La-La Land Crafts (as well as a couple of her amazing designers, the delightful Sandie and the charming Rosemary). i picked up my very first La-La Land image and started to colour, partly because i was excited to be playing with Copics, and also because the images were printed on REAL PAPER (not the cheap GP stuff i've been using, which does not get along well with Copics!), but MOSTLY because the La-La Land gals were so sweet and lovely that i just wanted to sit and get my craft on with them. :)

so i coloured a bit of Easter Marci's hat while i was there, and ended up finishing the image much later. FINALLY got the inspiration i wanted when La-La Land Crafts posted their Friday Inspiration, and i set to making a tag! lookie!

(click to enlarge, because i don't know what the heck is up with my photo uploader!)



here's a closer view of Marci:



ooooh, she was FUN to colour! i wasn't sure how i'd feel about working on something that wasn't SOGgy (and i often feel GUILTY about it, because you all know where my loyalties lie!), but since La-La Land's images are so different, it was a fun little step away from my usual comfort zone! i did work with minimal colours, so i know there's not a whole lot of depth to Marci's dress, but i'm okay with that until my giant order of Copics comes in. ;) (no, i haven't placed my order yet, but i'm gonna!)

okay, so there that is. my first project for EASTER! i have a craft fair coming up in a couple of weeks, so i should probably get to work, shouldn't i?

uploading this little taggie to the La-La Land gallery, and playing along at There She Goes - they have a Tag It! challenge going on right now. :)
