I still have to name this dark fae beauty, but I have finished playing with her for the moment. A wonderful day was spent in a class with Sue Smyth creating her altered book and I have been adding a few bits before I start the inside. My husband and kids loved it and my husband jokingly asked if it was being prepped for my Spells, so it is now going to be a form of journal. Thanks to Sue for an inspiring day!!
The dragon is an earring that hooks around your ear.
The young fairy is watching the dark fae and the dragon is watching her!
I created these cards after a scrapbooking class with Beck Beattie at Workshop Wonders in Brisbane. It's the first class I had attended in just over 3 years was a great opportunity to experience new products and mix colours. We created a beautiful page base using pastes and sprays, stencils, tissue and stamping. I had planned to complete the page but as it turned out the urge to dissect the page into card pieces and embellish them was calling to me. These cards are the result.
I kept the baby wipes I used during class to create one of the mats in the card. The colours blend and it adds a great texture.
I cut up the die cut frame and created a round frame for this card. The other pieces are used as embellishments throughout the other cards.
The metal circles charm was a solid piece but was easily separated to add varied pieces into the cards.
I have been creating with the new Hearts Ease range from Couture Creations. The colour palette is beautiful and the dies have been very versatile.
I have used the Scrolled Tomentosa die. By cutting 2 frames and then cutting them in half diagonally you can create the corners. I have done the same again in the yellow but have linked the 4 pieces together to create the larger frame.
Thought I'd do the Sketch Challenge #121 over at Cardabilities this month for the first time. The design is great and seeing the circular pattern in the centre, I had the beautiful Pion nest print as part of the 'A Day in May' range and based my take on the design around that theme. Hope you enjoy.
My card is based on the design for the Cardabilities Sketch challenge #121 below.
I took some inspiration from a beautiful yet eerie storm that passed over the other afternoon, near sunset. I had a 'Conservatory' sheet from the Blue Fern Studios, Sanctuary range. I love the options just one sheet of beautiful paper can bring about and from there I created it's own little world, like a garden in the light of the storm.
I thought I would share some more of the 7 Dots Nature Walk projects I have completed as I really do love these colours. I made this set for the 7 Dots display at www.bellapaperie.net.au The Prima Bark shapes really complement these colours.
