Doodle Dragon Studios Blogiversary Hop!

Welcome Dustin Pike fans to our second blog hop!  This is a party you will NOT want to miss.  If you have arrived from my fun lovin' teamie Ginny, you're right on track...if not please start back at Dustin's blog so you don't miss any of the fun (or chances to win)! 

We are delighted to share with you some of the amazing images Dustin has recently come up with.  Today marks Dustin's 2 year blogiversary and we, the Doodle Dragon Crew, want to show you some of the fabulous Blogiversary images you can get for a fantastic price!  You can locate these images HERE, as well as many more.  200 images plus for ONLY $20.00 USD during the blog hop ONLY!  See Blog Hop details below.

Here are a couple of fun projects I made using some of the blogiversary images...enjoy!
 
A digital layout of my son playing basketball...Dudley loves b-ball so much that even his skin has taken on the texture of a basketball!  I colored and "pieced" Dudley in Photoshop CS2.

A super cute new baby card using the duck and bubble frame.  I colored the inside and added the sentiment.  My original thought when I saw this image was that it would make an adorable photo frame for a baby bath layout, but I didn't have any pictures to suit.  Colored with Copics.

Next up I used the little lamb from the farm  collection...this little baby is so sweet!  I colored this one with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.

My last project for you was done with one of the utterly adorable hippos.  This one's out for an afternoon of sand, surf and sun...not to mention fun!  He's colored with Copics and the sentiment is a rub-on by Fancy Pants Designs.

Lelia! Hi! :) I love the texture you've given each of these critters, but that sheep is just adorable. :) Very nice work!

Denni said...

Ok, so the textured Dudley was my fave, until I got to the ducky, then he was my fave, until I got to the adorable sheep, then he was my fave, until I got to the hysterical hippo, then I realized they are ALL my fave!! What a lot of AMAZING work you've done! :D

Aga said...

OMG, how cute are all the projects! You've got to love the surfing hippo! And how cool to add some texture to the little basketball dragon. It's good to see an image used on a scrapbook page. I will have to try that some time.

Love all of your projects. I wish had photos of my girls playing basketball so I could do a layout. I'm famous for having the camera and never getting it out of the bag. Maybe I'll do better with the grandchildren! :)
