Reading is FUN!

The challenge this week on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog is Reading Is Fun. Since I'm a great believer in reading and an avid reader, I knew I didn't want to miss out on participating in the challenge. I am a firm believer that it doesn't matter what you read as long as you do, and that if you can read you can do anything you want.

When I got ready to start my project, I first went to my Tiddly Inks digital folder, and I had a bunch of free book images, plus there's one at the Tiddly Inks Store right now. Now how can you be a proper Wizardess if you can't read and understand the creation of making magic potions so of course I had to have the image called Wizardette? I got the title of my book from the Harry Potter Lexicon. I used Photoshop to create my scene, with Wizardette casting a spell from the top of a stack of books. For the most part everything is colored with Copics, buy I did use some Tim Holtz ink pads to color the book pages.

The papers are from a free kit created by Jen Reed for Computer Scrapbook.Com. I also used Photoshop to create my sentiment. I can't give you the book sentiment, since the book is a Tiddly Inks image, but I did create some word art without the book. Feel free to grab either or both.


  1. I love the card. Don't you just love all the books from Tiddly Inks? I agree, reading is such a pleasure and a powerful tool.

    Your blog is fantastic, also.

  2. I need to hop over to Tiddly Inks and check them out. Wouldn't you just love to sit and chat with JK Rowlings and get inside her imagination? Love the Reading can Cast A Spell On You and I think I will grab this one. Thank your dear generous Shirley!
