Artist Outpost Challenge for the month of February.

Hello Crafters.
Over at Artist Outpost blog this month is Anything Goes challenge. You can see here. I want to make something spring, I decided to use "A Lovely Day" and "Serenity" series.

First I painted background by Fresco Paint some colours and stamped Flowers by Archival inks.

Added stenciled with some paste, stamped vines with fern green archival then used UTEE.  I stamped the girl onto smoothy white card, painted and fussy cut.

I painted and made crackles onto die cut tag, stamped flower with potting soil  archival then used UTEE. Also I die cut corrugated board tag and used embossing powder.  

Finally I put everything onto background and I used the burlap bottom layers.
Thank you for stopping by... and sorry for my poor description.
See you again next month.  Etsuko xx

PaperArtsy Challenge Julie Ann Lee project "Feathers and Bones" part 2

Hello crafters and well comeback!
I followed Julie Ann's project yesterday,  today I found little box that I made memories box.  Julie Ann was making a absolutely cute suitcase, so I want to do it for my self.
I painted Fresco Paint Vanilla whole of the box. 

After it dried I painted Chocolate Pudding, French Roast and sprayed water then it dried I stamped Mini26 with Archival  Ink Coffee and sanded. It made shabby chic...I think!! I stamped sentiment onto curly paper, I really like Julie Ann's the technique It's my boom now!! I put on little blue bird and TM die cut rose. Next I die cut PaperArtsy Die hardware and stamped HP05 painted Lake Wanaka then glued onto the box.

PaperArtsy Challenge Julie Ann Lee project "Feathers and Bones"

Hello crafters and welcome.
This week is very exciting, over at PaperArtsy blog, Julie Ann has been back this week and for her project she made tiny suitcase  Feathers and Bones. Blog is here.
I was inspired by her project but I didn't have the suitcase, so I followed her techniques partially.
I took Hanging chunky board, I was filled with Gesso and I used Grunge Past some part then painted Cheesecake, Inky Pool, Blood Orenge, Chocolate Pudding Fresco Paints. These colours was followd by Julie Ann. I stamped Darcy's collection EDY02 onto super smooth card and little painted. I really like her stamps, it make me some idea, can't wait new collections.
I fussy cut the paper lay out on the Hanging chunky board. I used TM idea-ology gears at the bottom of the four hearts. Tiny red heart is shrink plastic.  
Finally I stamped Darcy's sentiment onto curly paper like she did and I used Treasure Gold.

Thank you for stopping by. xxx
