Don’t wait for the perfect moment…..

I have created the background with oxides stamped a dragonfly (free stamp from a magazine) and popped it on the tag with a sentiment (from the web)

A little Fairy Magic…….

I created a little scene using Lavinia Stamps. I actually used a sheet of card I had been using to “mop up” my bits of distress oxides, so I used a tiny round sponge and sponged on the dots, then I spritzed a piece of card with brusho I had mixed in water and put in a spray bottle to create another background. I stamped the fairy (Lavinia Stamps) and the sentiment (from the web) onto tissue paper and “mod podged” them onto the background and glittered in places to finish.

Hope you like

Through the Craftroom Door ~ Drawn By Krista ~ Happy Birthday!

My DT piece for Through the Craftroom Door, this week with the FAB  from the artist Drawn by Krista.

iusb_760x100.16504819_tmlv

"Krista's first love has always been drawing. Ever since her father gave her the book "The Art of Disney," back when she was a kid. She was lucky enough to live her dream and work as an Animator for over 15 years. 10 years of which was at Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida, up until the studio closed in 2004. Since that time she and her husband settled in the Midwest with their two beautifully spirited children. Krista began a new career in illustration and design. And so, DRAWN by Krista was born."

My DT Piece ~

drawn by Krist5a

Here I have simply created a background using Distress Oxides and randomly stamped Happy Birthday all over the background. I have coloured my image using Spectrum Noirs and then mounted the image onto my background
