I Dream of Jeannie!

Jeannie's visit to Arabia
 While coloring Jeannie by Francesca Lopez for Cute as a Button, I remembered dressing like this in 2007, while performing in a local production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat." I had two costumes for that show. One covered me from head to toe as Joseph's Jewish traditional family. The other was that of an Arab belly dancer. I had a second dancer costume to wear to a masquerade party that same month. Here are a couple of fun pictures from those days.
A seam had popped on my costume and my friend Vicki was doing her best to fix it!
Yup, that's me at home in my belly dance costume!

I used Prismacolor Pencils and a Prismacolor Blender to color Jeannie. Jeannie and my husband's color sketched background were merged in the Craft Artist 2 program.

I hope my work has inspired you to work on your card and maybe reminded you of some fun memories!
