I have been juggling a few more projects than normal just recently, just to make sure that I get all my gifts hand made and finished before the gift-giving season commences!!
Fancy a peek?
Some soft pencil shading on this wonderfully whimsical stitchery design by the gorgeous Cheryl over at Willowberry Designs. I just love the playfulness in Cheryl’s designs, they really bring out the ‘little girl’ in me!! Actually, if truth be known, Cheryl is also very apt at bringing out the little girl in me – she’s been a dear friend since our Gumtree days, and always puts a smile on my dial and tickles my funny bone!!
This darling project is destined for a very special friend… I’ll show you more when it’s finished!
Next up is a completed paper craft project. I can show you this in entirety because the lovely lady it is destined for is too busy to read blogs at the moment – she’s only two weeks off giving birth to her fourth child! She’s been finding it difficult to get her sketch pad in the right position because her tummy is getting in the way! So I thought she might appreciate a new creative journal, for those stolen moments in the future when baby is asleep.
I used scrapbooking paper by Kaisercraft, I think it is called ‘Chapter One’. The tree is also a Kaisercraft product and I painted it with acrylic paints and gave the leaves some sparkle with Crystalina KindyGlitz by Derivan.
The dragonfly charms were hand sewn to the paper and secured with sticky tape on the reverse.
Finally, I made a personalised tag and attached it to the binder along with some co-coordinating ribbons.
Now… can you guess what this is going to be?
Something purfectly girlie and frou frou! Anyone who knows by little Rosie knows that she is obsessed with kitties! When she clapped eyes on THIS beautiful feline she fell in love instantly and has requested that I make one EXACTLY the same. “Mummy,” she exclaimed excitedly, “this has to go top of the list, so everything else I’ve asked you to make for me will have to wait!”
Aye, aye Capt’n!!!!
Okay – best be off – I’m also working on a tutorial that you’ll be able to find over at Simply Christmas in a couple of weeks’ time! Have you been following along?
Till next time, creative hugs! Vikki
