Happy New Year Friends!
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Years! I took a little bloggy break to enjoy some family time and a few jammie days! I'm back today to share a gift I made for my sister. I love giving at least one homemade gift to her, and I was really pleased with how this turned out.
I started out by using a page from the Prima Watercolor Coloring Book. I knew this book was something I had to have as soon as I saw it last year! You can use whatever watercolouring medium you like on the pages, and for this page I chose to use my Distress Watercolor Crayons. Love them!!
Around the silver frame I added a couple clusters of embellishments - diecuts, paper ephemera, gold stars and sequins and pearls from a 28 Lilac Lane embellishment kit. I used Distress Inks to add some colour around the edge of this cute bird diecut. Inside the cute frame I added a mini card from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away 6x6 paper pad.
At the top I used feathers that I diecut with my Cricut and shaded with Distress Inks along with an arrow and more stars from a Project Life kit and popped up a layer to add dimension.
Well, my sister loved it - and sent me a photo of it on a gallery wall in her bedroom!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you're staying warm and cozy this week - and getting some crafty time ;)
