Live & Love Crafts - Season of Choice

Hi everyone!
This week's theme at LLC is ''season of choice'' and my choice is Spring..
This is the time for lots of Birthdays in my family..
My niece is the first.. She's soon turning 3 and I've decided to make her a gift bag..
I won't give her this one cos' I've realized it's too small but I'm gonna make something pretty similar..

When  I hear the word Spring I always think about flowers and butterflies..
That's why I chose to use the Sofiero papers from Maja Design..
I love the whole collection but the ones with flower patterns are my favourites..
I've also used one of the strips cos' those crowns were a perfect match for my image..

Here's a Prima Shabby Chic Corner piece.. Painted with white acrylic paint and then completely covered with gesso to match the other embellies..
The border die is a Magnolia Doohickey called Scalloped Dotted Lace..
The tags are a Doohickey too..

There's another crown here.. This amazing charm.. I have to get more..
I've also used my beloved Shabby Seam Binding and there's a piece of Cheesecloth under the flowers too..
I just had to apply some Chunky White Frantage all around the image..
I've used one of my Spellbinders Opulent Ovals to cut out the image and then there's the Classic Oval under that and the  Floral Oval under both...

Some more WOC flowers and the gorgeous Lace ''Reinette'' and some brand new Shabby Pearl Rose Organza Trim.. Fantastic, isn't it?
I've applied some gesso over the image and I really like the effect it gives.. A nice detail..
I've added some pearls  and Crackle paint here and there to finish the look.. 

The Fimo butterflies are gorgeous, right?
The molds are from Martha Stewart..
The paper edges are as usual distressed using a Tim Holtz tool and then inked with Walnut Stain..
They are machine sewn too..

This is Little Cute Tilda from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013..
She's stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both the ink pads and reinkers..
List of colours:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Black Soot
Dress: Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Crown: Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Background: Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone

Here's another pic of the whole mini bag..
I really hope you like it..
You can find the complete list of products at the end of this post..

  7. Your niece is one lucky little girl to receive such a gorgeous gift bag from her Auntie. It is simply gorgeous and your coloring is brilliant. I have all the supplies needed to color with the inks but haven't gotten the courage to do so. Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. Hi Tina,
    I can't believe you still have Reinette lace left. Don't get me wrong; it's beautiful but I've been out of stock for ages and I can't restock it as also KOG has sold out, so I'm just wondering how much you bought? :-) Stunning gift bag; as always fantastic colouring and beautifully decorated. Love the touch of bling as well!
