New Home

Hi guys, I'm back today with a project I've done for 
Tando Creative, the theme this week is a colour theme,
I have used a gorgeous 3D mini Birdhouse and Mini birds and branches too,

I decided to go shabby chic with this one, the papers used are from Maja design and after adhering to the shapes I put it together,
The roof I stippled DecoArt texture sand too, then when dry added my paints,

I did similar for the 3D bird, adding a tiny pearl for it's eye and a couple of feathers for the tail,
The branch I painted with some silks in chestnut brown,

I added a piece of coloured cardstock on the base and some flowers from Sweet Lilac, a butterfly cut from some paper brings in the colour theme too,

Fantasy Goes at Sweet Lilac

Hi guys, It's time for our challenge over at 
Sweet lilac flowers and as my title the theme is
Now I had a few ideas in my head for this one but finished up doing this as I found this fabulous digi called Sounds of the Ocean by Sureya, 

I've used some of the leaves from a tulip stem and another leaf from one of the leaf sets they do, then I thought the Gyspohila flowers went really well too, some shells from my stash finish off the display,

She is coloured with my copics then fussy cut out, the backgrounds is made using an old piece of packaging I had lying around, so i trimmed it down in length a little, then painted the background using paints from Tando Creative,
I also used some of the Deco Art Modeling paste and the sequin waste stencil to make the bubble effect on the right hand side,
Texture sand and more paints were used at the bottom to look like sand,
