Oh my.. It's March already..
Where does the time go???
Are you ready for a new Live & Love Crafts Challenge?
This month's theme is Earthy Easter..
We want to see an Easter Project in Earthy tones..
This is what this is all about..
These are not the colours I usually use..
There are some that I'm just scared of..
But how could I not use the new Pion Design A Day In May papers..
They are just gorgeous..
And perfect for this challenge..
This is a pocket tag..
I got the new Magnolia Ink Magazine (No1/2014) the other day and there was this fantastic step by step tutorial.. I just had to try it out..
The base is made out of kraft paper..
Only now I realize that I forgot to take a pic of the inside.. Oh my..
Now let's take a look at some of the details..
I love this wonderful charm.. Perfect for all your easter projects..
The textured papers are from Papermania..
The ribbon used to tie everything up is from my stash..
Of course there are lots of WOC flowers all over the place and a small doily tucked under there..
I've used my Spellbinders Ovals to cut the image out and then a Scalloped Oval under that..
Then there's this fantastic lace and the Shabby Pearl Rose Organza Trim..
I've added a bit of cheesecloth under all those layers and tons of pearls..
The flowers and other random parts of the tag are covered with Gesso..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
This is Tilda With Egg and Chicken from the Little Easter Collection 2013..
I'm glad I finally had the chance to colour her.. She's gorgeous..
The Chicken Wire I used around her is from that same collection..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I've added some Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint on the eggs, Stickles on her dress and Liquid Pearls all around and on the image..
The white spots on her cheeks are made using an Inkssentials White Opaque Pen..
It's nice to make something different from time to time.. LOL!
I really hope you enjoyed..
You can find all the products listed at the end of this post..
This pocket tag is already available for sale in my Etsy store HERE..
See you soon..
