Bloom Girl Guest Design

Hello Friends! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I'm excited to share that my month for guest designing with Jamie Dougherty's Bloom Girl team has finally arrived!

Today I am sharing my first project of the month. I used Jamies "Mixed Media Bloom Book" I also used Bloom Girls stamps "Paige and Joy."

I wanted to do something different and fun so I decided to stamp the Bloom Girls on white cardstock. Then I cut their hair off and the flowers. I rearranged the flowers in their hair to suit my needs.

I thought it would be so fun to create art dolls out of the stamps. I printed off some art doll parts and added them to the faces.

I used Caran D'ache water soluble crayons to color my faces and many of the florals. I also used the Bloom Flair and Bonus Stamp. I made a garden out of them combined with some of the florals from the Bloom Girls face stamps. I stamped them on Prima pattern papers.

I used a little Bloom Spray in the background with some modeling paste and masks. I also used the Bloom Girl clear acrylic stamp.

I love how this project turned out and it was a ton of fun!

Tags with Candy Cane Lane!!!!

Hello Friends! 

I'm sharing two tags with you today created with BoBunny's Candy Cane Lane. I am in LOVE with this collection. Have you seen it?
Well if you have not you can find it right here!

I covered my tags with pattern paper from the collection and then I layered with die cut doilies and chipboard from the Layered Chipboard Sheet.

I used some of the Candy Cane Lane Petals and outlined them with BoBunny Pearlescents.

I used a snowflake punch and gems to embellish. the seam binding was hand dyed and tied into a large bow.

On this tag I used a snowflake punch on the sides and a doily punch to embellish.

I also used more of the beautiful chipboard and one of the new BoBunny stickable stencils .

I just love how these tags came out! They will look beautiful adorning a gift for someone special!

Scraps of Darkness "Bon Appetit" 2nd Reveal

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing my second project created with the Scraps of Darkness October Kit "BonAppetit"
If you have not seen the kit in it's entirety you can find it here.

This beautiful photo is courtesy of MariannaInsomnia on DeviantArt and you can find her work right here.

I decided to use a cardstock background and splatter with Lumiere and Texture Mist. I included cardboard in the corners and tucked beneath my layers. We received Dylusions in our kits and I painted the cardboard with it in the red tone. I used some Lumiere and Lindys embossing powder on the wooden gate which I promptly broke apart and layered within my page.

Here is a close up of the wooden embellishment.

 I added a Prima metal clock but the gears were in the kit. I used Lumiere and some other paints to give the clock and gears texture and interest.

Another close up. I love those texture mists. They dry with a raised finish. So cool!

Be sure to stop in and see us on facebook. Lots of fun swaps in our community. You can find us here.

ATC's with BoBunny Wild Card

Hey Everyone! Today I am sharing several ATC's I created for BoBunny with the Wild Card collection! This is such a fun collection you can find it here. This collection is just perfect for small artistic pieces like this.

I created art dolls with my Queen, King and Jack. I cut the faces off the cards included in the Wild Card Noteworthy Pack and created art dolls with other peices of Noteworthy and pattern papers in Wild Card.

I used some art doll parts I had on hand for the Queens arms, skirt and legs.

Oh more legs here for the King! LOL 
I have also mixed in some chipboard from Modern Miss.
BoBunny collections always work so well together!

Here we have the Jack. I used one of the Noteworthy journal cards and cut it apart to form the wings. Such fun!
Some touches of glittery ribbon and lets not forget my favorite BoBunny mist in "Bronze".

I'm exchanging ATC's with some of the gals over at Scraps of Darkness. We have a community on facebook and regular ATC swap. Hope my gals like these!
