Hi all!

A bit of sunshine on this dark,cold and rainy day!
Photo is of Tessa and taken at her birthday this year.
Didn't want to embellish it to much because I really love the way the background turned out.

Misting, masking, stitching and stamping, all the fun stuff!!
Made the pink and yellow flowers from some lovely thread I found the other day and these were my inspiration for this page.
The gorgeous chippie is from Dusty Attic, Ornate Corner #2 DA 0315

Some details:

the lovely thread I used for the flowers.

Have a wonderful day!

wall panel

Hi all!

Today I would like to share this wall hanging panel.
Had so much fun creating this!
This started out with a piece from a cardboard box I found at work.
I actually have two pieces with the circle openings.
 They were so heavily glued together and it took me a while to separate the two pieces.
The result was an awesome texture!
I immediate had an idea how to alter this and it turned out exactly the way that I wanted.
Just love it when it all comes together!

Dusty goodies used:
Hinges DA 0509
Ferns DA 0507
mini Words #2 DA 0476

This is the original piece:

look at that texture! so yummy!

I started to give it a coat of gesso and once dry I misted the colors.
Did some stamping as well.
Here are some details:

After all this fun I also made a card with the stuff I had on my table.

For this card I used the Mini Frame set DA 0567
Made the pps by misting and inking white cardstock.

Enjoy your day!

love -card-

Hi all!

A lot of birthdays and celebrations the next months
 so I better make sure I have some cards at hand.
Have to make some masculine cards as well but I find them more difficult than feminine ones.
Just love my lace and flowers!
Made this card for a sweet scrap friend.

The background was created with gesso and embossing powder.
Just sprinkle some embossing powder on the wet gesso.

Enjoy your day!

Some loose threads from the burlap makes a lovely bundled detail.
