J is for Jungle

Hello all my crafty friends,

I hope your week is going well. After having two weeks off entry back to the work force has been a challenge. I miss walking on the beach and lounging in the sun. Now I am freezing. But it is nice to back in my craft room.

I bought this wooden "J" at Michaels some time ago and I finally decided to use it. So here is what I came up with. I covered the "J" with Polka Dot paper from Memory Box. Debuting on the letter are Gloria the Hippo and the Elephant from Magnolia. I colored them with Copic markers C00, C01, C03, W00, W01, W03, RV000, RV10, YG63, and YG67. I colored the flowers with Violet Glimmer Mist and Forest Green for the leaves. Then for the finishing touches some pearl bling.

Here is a close up of each image.


  1. What an absolutely charming project. I really like it so much. Those little images are just precious, and you've done them up so nicely. Well done, lady!! (PS - did you notice that J is my initial - ROFLOL)
