Meet Alanna

Hiya Crafties!!!

Today fast post with my newest DT card for Conie Fong. For this project I choose image called Alanna.

Alanna is sweet image - great for Springy/Summery cards, perfect for not only birthday cards!

I decided to use for this card some of my new papers and make it colourful, so...


I made her blond with yellow flowers and charteuse (yellow/green) cloths.


Stamped two small butterflies and coloured them with pink, lavender and ultramarine pencils, added lightly coloured sentiment (Lili of the Valley if I'm not wrong) and piece of floral ribbon and here she is:


Maybe I should make her hair darker, but I love her this way :)

What do you think about this card Friends?

Till next post!

When you learn to paint...

Hiya peeps!

Today or actually tonight (for me) I decided to write about my .... painting... kinda...

As you know I am attending art course and this course is coming very fast to its end..

That means work on final piece...

I was thinking hard what to do... and I choose to produce mixed media piece.

I still don't feel comfortable with paints but decided to use acrylics as base/background for my piece.

Idea: landscape/meadow
Media: acrylics, twine/yarn, paper, etc.

So far made some sketches in charcoal  (unfortunately no pics).

Also tried to figured out what technique will be good for background - worked on canvas boards (my final work will be done on canvas).

Here's stippling technique, nice effect


Then played with palette knife 


I couldn't decide which one I like best and Joanne (teacher) suggested to mix both techniques:


And now I am even more in trouble 😁 I need to decide and have not 2 but 3 choices... eh life 😁😁😁.

What do you think?

Till next post friends!

Cupcake girl

Hello Crafties!

Today's card I actually made yesterday, but was bit too late to write blog - I needed to put my son to bed and that took a bit of time ;)

Did you ever heard about Yasmeen Eldahan aka YamPuff? No?

So we can say... now you did ;)

To make my newest card I used one of her linearts/chibis called Cupcake girl. 



You can find this cutie and many, many more on Yasmeen website or in her Etsy shop

Love her chibis, so you can expect more of them on my cards soon :)

That's all for today!

Till next post peeps!

May all your wishes come true

Hiya crafty Friends!

Today I have for you another card with mermaid 😊. Oh yes - total addiction 😁.

For today's project and newest DT card for Kinda Cute by Patricia I choose Mermaid in shell 2.

I decided to colour image, cut it out and stick it to the card base, which I shaded a bit with pencils.


Sentiment stamped straight on card base, little bit of silver glitter glue and 2 silver-ish pearls as finishing touch.

So... what do you think about my card?

Butterfly

Hiya my crafties!

Today my newest DT card with Butterfly from Conie Fong.

I have to be honest with you,  I am very rarely making cards with insects.. specially stamped ones...

Conie's butterfly is actually first I coloured and used as single kinda focal point on card. I spent bit of time to think about card base, layout, what paper etc...

Definitely I wanted to use also one of sentiments from Butterfly set...

Result of my brainstorm below:



Few close ups:
