Cotton Candy Gals inspired by LifeBook 2014 course

I've been taking the year-long LifeBook 2014 online course hosted by Tamara LaPorte at Willowing Arts. The course has a wide variety of contributors. Cotton Candy Gals were inspired by Marieke Blokland's LifeBook 2014 tutorial. When I first saw this class, I thought, "Uhoh, am I going to like this?" The answer ended up being "YES".

It's so much fun to go to the extreme with colors and subject in my art, and come up with something that makes me smile. Candy Cotton is on watercolor paper and Comic Candy appeared in my journal. There are other gals who will be joining these two but their bodies aren't completed. :-) 

No matter what I already know, I ALWAYS learn something new and fun with an online course, so I highly recommend trying them. Tam is very generous with the pricing and quality of LifeBook 2014, so jump in.....the gals are prodding you on!!

I am so happy that I took advantage of this Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit promotion with her pink design of Xyron adhesives.

The box is adorable, and a future altered object for me.
The little compartments contain 6 adhesives: disposable sticker maker (future altered item for me), 188 thick foam squares, disposable tape runner, double-sided High Tack Tape, Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive, and the ever-useful adhesive eraser!

I definitely will use this in my on-the-go art supply kit, as well as in my studio.

Isn't it nice to feel that you made a good decision when spending money?

Great promotion Teresa and Xyron!

p.s. If you order this, please note that the web address listed on the back of the box sleeve for Teresa is incorrect. It should be
