Hello to you all on this first day of 2014! Welcome here, Im so happy you still make your way here :)
I have some exiting news to share! I was asked on as a gdt for Live and Love Crafts by my lovely friend and ex dt mama Sandra. What a perfect way to start 2014!
When she told me about this month theme I was a very intrigued but I must confess I found it a bit of a struggle. It is PERFUME! Maybe your first thought is like mine, but hey there is nothing like a REAL challenge ha? Besides she mentioned some ways to interpret the theme that made it a lot easier right away: you can create in the same colors as your fav perfume, your choice of image can reflect the name of the perfume of your choice, you can alter a box and add a vintage perfume label and so on!
I chose to try the decoupage technique for the very first time. I had this idea I wanted to use this gorge digi by Saturated Canary called Starla. She has this theatrical look that reminds me of a moviestar or a superstar currently living in Hollywood just waiting to announce the release of her new fragrance. Its named Stardust. I bought the beautiful vintage bottle from Panduro Hobby and firstly colored my image with my Copics and then made a little label out of her and printed it. Then I used decoupage to add her to the bottle. It was a bit messy! But it turned out pretty good. I also added some rolled roses, di paint, ribbon, embossing powder and a resin piece. You can read all about the products I have used at the end of my posting. If you click the picture it will take you right there. Then of course Starla had to be made into a gift set so I made a matching card. The sentiment is one out of three that is included in the digi. Love it, it has the right amount of spunk to it ;)
In the pictures below you can see my makes a little better. Do not forget to head on over to the amazing Live and Love Crafts Blog to look at the utterly stunning creation and different takes by my former teamies. Im sure you will find awe inspirations there!
