The Face

Today I want to share with you my piece called the Face.
I have recently played with Ecolines - liquid water colours, while creating the background. What a fun it was!
I also added some stenciling and stamping along with gluing some pieces of rice paper. To finish off I added some wooden stars, hot embossed earlier. 
They symbolize tears: so shiny and precious.
You can see few of my steps below:

I am joining the following challenges:

for Maya

My granddaughter Maya loves little ponies. It's a pity because in the contrary I think they are very ugly. I wanted to make a gift for her showing another kind of pony.
And you know what? She loved it!
In my shadow box I used the metal shape of a horsie my older son cut for me.
It was covered with texture paste through the stencil. 

I started with a piece of paper , various sprays and a brayer. 

Then I added some stamping to the background  and framed the picture.

To finish off I added a horsie and some metal elements

A Quote

I'm on time today☺! And it's high time to start our new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday
This time our theme is Add a Quote. I hope you will join us with your beautiful pieces.

I have altered one of my favourite things to make awesome- a crafty gift bag. 
I started with stamping some text stamp to make a frame. 
Then I added some die cuts- I made them from an old box so it is another thing recycled.
I finished my project with stenciling some embossing paste, hot embossed later.
I love the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson and hope you will like it too.

From  this

To that

Look at the world through rose- coloured spectacles!

I have altered a box with glasses wipes using heavy gesso through the letter stencil for the background.
Then I added some colours with distress inks. 
Stamped the edges and attached the rose glasses which were stamped and hot embossed.
Hope you like it!

Proud & Happy

What a day!
Have been featured at Craft Stamper Magazine Winners Profile!

Special Words

I am so happy and honoured to be a  Pinworthy Inspiration at Vintage Journey today.
Their current theme is Words that are so Special.

This is a piece I prepared for Words That Are So Special Challenge.
I started with transferring the face image with gesso onto a cardboard (18x18 cm).
Next step was adding some texture and stenciling some texture paste. Then came the best part- inking, misting, painting! I also added some stamping, outlining with my Inktense pencil and some sequins to finish off.
I put the picture into wooden frame and added the words:
I am here
I am simply me
I am strong
I am dreaming big
I have been going through really hard times recently and had to face all sorts of problems ( I guess as we all do).
These words remind me of greeting each day with a smile, of looking forward - not back and enjoying life in every minute. 
That is why they are so important to me.

You make me smile

I love this photo of my dearest granddaughter and just wanted to embellish it a bit.
As always I am sharing a few steps of the progress:

I have used an old heart shaped hanging.

You can see a lot of chipboard pieces glued to the background and covered with gesso. I have also put some texture paste through the stencil.

Starting colouring all with gelatos.

More gelatos and  Ayeeda Mists( 13 arts)

Working on the focal point.
