MANY BLESSINGS {Fresh Brewed Designs - Fall Flash Back}

FALL FLASH BACK
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

Hi my lovely followers and visitors, we are celebrating with a FALL FLASH BACK at  Fresh Brewed Designs and I got to play with these gorgeous fall images from FBD.  The images I have used are called FALL HARVEST and INDIAN PRINCESS and can be purchased here.

Also check out Fresh Brewed Designs' current challenge here; and their Facebook Page here.

The images have been coloured with Copics.  The design papers are amongst others from FabScraps and the brads, button and bow are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC. The folded embellishments have been created with folded square punch-outs and the tutorial for them can be found under the Tutorial section at the top of my blog.

613 Avenue Create - ATG + optional Twist
Just Keep on Creating - ATG
Sister Act Card Challenge - ATG
Crafting from the Heart - ATG
Creative Fingers - ATG
Clear it Out - Fancy Folds, Dies and/or Punches (used square punches for the folded embellishments - and the button and bow has been in my stash for more than a year)

INNER BEAUTY {ABM Through the Craftroom Door}

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran featuring in 'Through the Craftroom Door' Magazine}
  
Art by Miran is sponsoring Through the Craftroom Door Magazine and are offering two new beautiful images.  The design team had the wonderful opportunity of choosing one of the images to have fun with.  I chose this adorable little girl all dressed up in her chic little polka dot dress. 

I have coloured her with Copic Markers.  The little flowers have been created with a punch and the flourishes were stamped with Chiswick Acrylic Stamps. The buttons and ribbon are from my stash. The design papers are from BasicGrey and We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}

The folded circle embellishments have been created with circle punches and my tutorial for them has been published in the latest Through The Craft Room Door Magazine

Also visit Art by Miran's challenge blog where bi weekly challenges are hosted.  The theme is always Anything Goes as long as there is a hand coloured image on your creation. So hop on over here to have a look at their current challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, for some more inspiration.

DIVINE CREATIONS {Art by Miran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for September is DIES and/or PUNCHES.

I have been happily crafting again and this time with this gorgeous girl called LADY PAPILLON created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really is so elegant and a natural beauty.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase LADY PAPILLON here.

The folded embellishments have been created with circle and flower punches. She has been coloured with H2O water colour pencils and I have used a blender pencil for the first time instead of water. I must say the blender pencil really helps soften and blend the pencil strokes.  Thank you to my team mates at Art by Miran for recommending this to me.  The stipple effect around her and the edge of the shape has been done with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design paper and bling are from my stash.

      {Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #99}

      Another design team project for our current challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog. The theme for this fortnight is CIRCLES.  I decided to upcycle an empty Five Roses Tea Box (only available in South Africa). Its a lovely little box to gift some home baked goodies in.

      I have used the flower from the following set from DigiStamps4Joy:
      1. 3D FLOWER SET
      The flower was printed on design paper and then fussy cut.  The circle shapes behind the flower have been drawn with templates and then hand cut.  The folded circle centre of the flower has been created with a scallop circle punch  The folded corner embellishments have been drawn with a Doing Life template, cut out and then folded.  Here is the tutorial for them. The bling and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.
