Shine by Ladybird

This weekend, we picked apples. I love this tradition in our family. We often do it later in the year, but we have a September month full of activities this year, so we decided to go earlier. This picture is not a picture of this year. I took the time to have a look at the pictures from previous year and I found this one. I found the colors perfects for the Fortune Teller Paper Collection of 7 Dots Studio

I also love the leaves chipboards from Um Wow Studio, they are so perfect for every occasion!
Did you notice I used theDahlia Stencil? I love the effect and I am quite sure it's not the last time I'll use it!

Here are the products I used:

Choose your OWN path by Lynne

I am sooo excited to be posting today!!

THANK YOU for stopping by to take a peek...
to see how I created this greeting card.

I began my card by cutting strips of
a "paper" I made by adhering various strips
Tissuestock and vintage curtain pieces
to a piece of handmade chipboard.

I applied the strips to the card face and
spritzed the entire card with mist.

I then pulled out my box of UmWowStudio chippies
and chose
which I cut in half.

I then painted the chippie with gesso.

When dry, I spritzed it with mist.
LOVE how the color dried in the "pockets".

Next I pulled out a few pieces from the UmWowStudio

I globbed on some paint to color
the flourishes.

While my UmWowStudio chippies were drying
I started working on the rest...
I colored a few flowers,
and stapled a piece of chicken wire to my card.

I chose a bit of verbage to finish off my card.

a few more pictures....

Once again.....THANK BUNCHES for stopping by!!!!

She spread her wings....

Hello everryone, 

Today it is my turn to share a project. I have made a canvas and it is a little different to my usual bright colours but I really enjoy making vintage things as well...  
 here it is:

This was actually a painted canvas so I started with glueing book pages on it. I then added the dots with a piece of punchinella and some model paste. 
Next I painted it with a mix of turquoise and white DecoArt Media fluid acrylics. 
The next layer was Antiquing Creme also by DecoArt. I used a turquoise and a brown.. 
You put it on, let it dry and then wipe it off again... 

I got the little frame in the dollar store and I antiqued it the same way, using Titan Buff paint and the same antiquing creams. 

On the little crown from the photo booth props set of chipboards I added some glue from a tape runner and then put some foil on it. It was by no means perfect but that was just the look I was going for. The bits that weren't covered by the foil I painted with gold paint. I then added 2 layers of clear embossing powder over the top. 

I put a piece of Designer Paper by 7dots Studio (Destination unknown) under the little frame.  
Next was the Cicada. I painted it with Titan Buff DecoArt Media Fluid acrylic paint and then added some dark turquoise on the top edges of the wings.
I then used a holographic embossing powder to get some shimmer. With a bit of metal wire and some seed beads I gave the cicada antennea, no idea if the have antennea??? lol

Underneath the frame is a rubber stamped image by VivaLasVegaStamps! It didn't stamp very well so I added some more ink with my fingers. I also added some black stripes with black fluid acrylic and an old creditcard. 

Here is a close up of the shimmer... 

The whole thing was put together using gel medium to glue the frame, the crown and the cicada. I also added some splatters... The last thing I did was add the sentiment which is by VivaLasVegaStamps. 

I have used these chipboards:

Cicada bug

Photo booth props

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
