unbranded dies from Amazon Prime {China}

I only bought these three dies to start with but boy do I wish I bought more they are just right to exchange the hair and clothes . love mixing and matching items.   started a bunch of cards need to color in some checks and add freckles and basic shading to them but they are to cute and I had to share them.

 

The outside of the coffee card ….                          the inside has a pocket for a coffee GIFT                                                                                           CARD.

Mr. Duck torn paper art.

This was inspired by my nephew TEDDY… He used to carry a stuffed Mr. Duck every where he went.. Hard to believe , He is all grown up now……  I am enjoying tearing papers and fitting them like puzzle pieces. its a slow long process . The best part of this is if you don’t like something you can always glue an other piece over the one you didn’t like…. added some mulberry paper to fluff him up some…..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dalmatian puppy …Torn paper by Rose Guerin….. loved doing this guy such fun …took forever but I finally finished him… If you look close the words are all information about Dalmatians I thought it would be a kick to print it out and then tear the papers to fit.. Its like doing puzzles once you get the hang of it, pieces seem to just fit into place. ok now gotta go pick up all the torn pieces of paper that flew around ………

you could distress it  on the edges, little cuts, bends, and tears..

 

paper embroidery feather

Using heavy water color paper. draw your feather of glue a photo of feather to paper to follow your color patterns. I use an Aul, to pre poke the holes make sure you have plenty of space between holes so you don’t tear new holes or over side an hole. its pretty easy you can do backstitching works good or reusing a stiched hole already in place.  then added beads ..fun and pretty. also made a green book mark. working on more of these everyone seems to want these…

my green feather book mark  . I love the colors light and dark greens, and crystal glass beads in the center. beads are all  Glass seed Beads…………….
