For Ruth

Hiya Crafties!

Today DT project for Conie Fong Art & Design and special request in one.

My man's work mate asked for Birthday card for his partner, personalised, with flowers.

Only image I could think of straight away was Peony Delight from Conie's etsy shop.

I coloured it with Prismacolors, then used circle die on it.


As I wanted to make this card with bit of vintage/shabby chic twist I used kinda 'dirty' green patterned papers divided with pinky/purple one. I distressed all layers with scissors, shaded image with mulberry pencil, added crochet trim, 2 goldish pearls, sentiment and...

voila!

Card is done :)


I really like the ending result :)

What do you think about my new card?

Till next post Friends!

Xmas card with Noelle

Hiya Crafties!

Today my DT card for Conie Fong Art & Design. I back to beautiful image from last year called 'Noelle's Gift' and strangely... made my card looks almost the same as my previous encounter with this cute girl...

This time I used Prismacolor pencils to colour her and made her blond, but layout... is only bit reversed we can say. I think that from some strange reason I see Noelle only in this layout...hope you understand what I want to say by this :)


If you want to see my last year card with her check here.

Hope you like her blond ;)

That's all for today.

Till next post Friends!

Gnomes for Xmas

Hiya crafty peeps!!!

Today my DT card for Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog. This month sponsor - Oddball Art. Winner of challenge gets $10 coupon code to spend in the store.

For my card I choose Creepy Cute Ol' Gnome Love.

Images coloured with Prismacolors with just a hint of gold glitter glue.


As you can see I decided to use sentiment as kinda focal point of my card - for change :)

These gnomes are very CUTE!!!

Hope you agree with me :)

That's all for today!

Special order

Hiya Crafties!

Today 3 cards - special order from our lovely neighbour Margaret. She asked me for personalized Xmas cards for her best friends. Not easy order - all Ladies are around 70 years old and I don't know them...

Margaret said 'nothing silly, fancy, maybe flowers..', hmmm, hard stuff I thought.. animals, maybe winter scene... Mum suggested to make few cards and ask Margaret to choose her faves and that's what I did :)

First card chosen by Margaret is for her friend Margaret (yes, this lady has the same name as my neighbour) - image: Christmas bears from Art by Barb.



Second card is for Shirley - image from TiddlyInks.



And last but not least, card for Kathleen - image of robin (designed by Jennifer Ellory) from free gift set at Cardmaking & Papercraft (year 2015).


What do you think about these cards?

Hope Margaret's friends will like their cards :)

Till next post Friends!

Craft fairs

Hiya crafty Friends!!!

Sorry I'm so quiet lately!

Last Saturday I was on my first craft fair... maybe I didn't make huge money, but I was on plus even though people who came weren't many. We all are hoping next 5 weeks will be better as more people will now about our craft fairs.

I had some of my cards on stall and jewellery pieces which left me from my etsy shop plus few abstract canvases I paint.


3 piece set - kinda art deco :)


Bracelets for kiddos - about 10 different colours and styles


Earrings with beads and semi-precious stones



'Girl' - bit sparkly abstract canvas paint with palette knife


'Rain' - another abstract paint with palette knife.

I didn't sold canvases (but had some interest in them, so... who knows). Sold few cards and few pieces of jewellery - mainly for children.


This pom-pom bookmark is one from 12 I made today for my next craft fair November 24th.

Have few more other things in mind plus need to finished ordered personalized Xmas cards for my neighbour.

Wish me luck with my 2nd fair :)

Till next post Friends!
