It's Time to Shop and Hop!

Hi there! It's time to Shop and Hop with My Favorite Things! All the new releases are available right HERE, right now! :) If you arrived here from Michele's Blog, welcome! If not, you'll want to go back to Kim's Blog and start from there so you don't miss a thing!

I'm thrilled to be sharing Tweeny Teen - Rock On with you! Think of her as the big sis' of those adorable Pure Innocence cuties! I have teenagers, so I can definitely relate to this set! I found in my stash some retired papers that looked teenager-y to me, and I created this CD holder. My kids are always making CDs for the car or to give to friends. I thought this would be a fun way for my daughter to give a CD to a friend!

I paper pieced the image in several layers, and I also pieced the iPod. I used Prismacolor pencils to add some subtle depth and dimension to the chair and to her pants. The rest of the image was colored with Copics, and I sponged around the image circle.

When the bow is untied, the CD is revealed inside. I added another sentiment inside the flap!


You're finished at my stop -- now you're off to visit the fantastically talented Sherrie Siemens! I can't wait to see what she has created! :)

Thanks so much for hopping by! Have a great night!
Christina
