Happy Monday peeps! Another week at work but next week is a short 4 days week due to the Easter hols and then I have a lovely long break and lots of time for relaxing, crafting....and sorting out all the mess in my craft corner, time to re-organise I think! Not that I can do a lot with such a small space, but it's good to try.
Anyhoooo, the reason I'm here today is for my usual Monday inspiration post for La-La Land Crafts.
This week the theme is 'Doilies' not a hard one for me I can assure you lol. Even though I never use the bought paper doilies any more, I do love a doily die. I've used several 'doily' dies on my card, though you may have to look hard to spot some of them peeking out from under everything else!
I used the following La-La Land products on my card.
All of the above can be purchased at Dies to Die for
I coloured up Marci with my Distress Ink markers to match these pretty papers from the Timeless Victorian pad from Lili of the Valley
Distress Ink Markers
Skin: Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Seedless Preserves
Outfit: Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Pumice Stone.
To be honest I did intend this to be very soft and pastel, but somehow when I let the creative monster loose, it decided that wasn't going to happen lol!
I shabbied up some lovely seam binding to use for my bow. This is VERY easy to do, just soak your length in some cold water, scrunch up tightly, and then either dry overnight, or if you're impatient like me you can use a heat gun (on low) or a hairdryer to dry it.
I used lashings of glamour dust to give her some sparkle,
I kept the inside quite simple, using more LotV papers and the same circles and doily as on the front.
I used the following embellishments from The Ribbon Girl.
Well that's all from me today, but I'll be back later this week with some more inspiration to share. Until then, enjoy your week! :) xx
