Just Inklined Blog Hop--It's Spring!!!

Welcome to the Just Inklined Monthly Blog Hop!!!  If you arrived here from Karen's Blog you are in the right spot. If not you should start at Jeni's Blog so you don't miss a single blog along the Hop.  The fabulous Ms Jeni is the hostess this month for the Just Inkined Blog Hop and has chosen the theme, Anything Spring.  I chose this darling Door Mouse:

I decided that the Door Mouse looked like he was just waking up after a long winter hiding in the little tea pot on the shelf adorned with beautiful dandelion pictures.  The image was colored with copic markers and the image was created by merging 3 images together. The Door Mouse, the two different dandelion panels from Jak Heath's dp and the dandelion dp which is from the same bundle.  I loved the colors and the patterns.
I twisted and resized hte dandelion panels until I liked them. I really love to merge images because there is so much you can do with them.
I made the hat pin with some fun beads and some silver cord and thought it was the perfect touch for the shelf ruffle made with crepe paper pleated onto a piece of ribbon tape...pretty cool huh?!?
The final touch was the I-Rock metal Glam Rocks in the upper left corner, it is fun to lay out the little swirls.
The next stop  on your travels through the Hop is, Heidy, the newest member of the DT.    Be sure to stop by the LaPashe site to see all the newest images.
