Time to Relax at Ike's World Challenge Blog

 What do you do to relax? Besides, craft, that is?! I like to lose myself in a book. I like to read science fiction/fantasy, as well as themed mysteries like Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swenson mysteries.

One of my favorite authors is Charlaine Harris, whose Sookie Stackhouse series spawned the TV show True Blood. Her new series, about the people in the town of Midnight, will be a summer TV show in the States, premiering later this month.

Relaxation is the theme for this fortnight's challenge at Ike's World Challenge Blog, and I ran with my love of reading to create the book bag above using a digi image called Book of Dreams. Ike's Store is celebrating a summer blowout sale and you can get this image for just $1.50 US! The sale lasts through July and there are LOADS of images for 50% off.
Here's a close-up of my colored image on my book bag. I used colored pencils, gel pens and Copics, as well as Stickles for a little sparkle.
You have one more week to create something that shows how you relax and link it up to the IWC challenge post for your chance to win free digis from the new store. While I Keep Calm and Read, you  Keep Calm and Craft On!
