Kimono Kayuki by Conie Fong

Hi friends!  Welcome to today's post.  This will probably be my last post for while because I will be having major surgery at the end of this month.

I love Conie Fong's images and so I created this card using Conie Fong's beautiful Kimono Kayuki image for my Design Team card.  Actually, this is the third card that I created with this lovely image.


I coloured this beauty with Copic markers.  The flowers are handmade. 

For more inspiration, check out Conie Fong's Facebook group called Conie Fong Art & Design.   

Take good care of yourselves.  Hugs, Lori xx

Giraffe on a Sailboat YouTube Video by Conie Fong

Greetings friends!  Today, I am sharing a card which features an adorable image by Conie Fong called Giraffe on a Sailboat.  Conie shows you how to draw this image on her YouTube channel called Draw with Conie, along with some other simple images.  

Conie converted this sweet image to JPG format for the Design Team members so they can colour it and create a card with it, and show you how cute it really is.  Here is my Design Team card.


I coloured the image with Copic markers and I drew a simple background.  

If you decide to draw this image yourself, you can then share your drawing on Conie's Facebook group called Draw with Conie.

Conie has another Facebook group called Conie Fong Art & Design Group.  Check it out to see some amazing inspiration.

That's all from me today.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Little Mermaid by Conie Fong (card 2)

Hi friends, and welcome to today's post.  I am sharing a mermaid card which I made using the darling Little Mermaid image by Conie Fong which you can find in her etsy shop.  This is the second card that I made this sweet mermaid.  Here is my Design Team card.


I have used Copic markers to colour her, and I created a little underwater scene by drawing the coral and the bubbles. 

Conie Fong has a fabulous YouTube channel called Draw with Conie where she teaches you how to draw a simple mermaid and other adorable simple images.  


Conie has two groups on Facebook.  One is called Conie Fong Art & Design Group.  You will find some wonderful inspiration by the other Design Team members as well as other crafters.  

Conie's other Facebook group is called Draw with Conie.  If you follow Conie's step by step tutorials and draw one of her images, you can post it on this group. 

That's all from me.  Take good care of yourselves.  Have a lovely day.  Hugs, Lori xx
