Spells - a Month before Halloween

Hi... here's RoRa again.. today is the end of September.. exactly a month before Halloween.. For today post, I make a faux book with Halloween theme.. *yeaay*

Using Annabelle Melancholy Moppet.... which is *I think* actually not a Halloween image, but after saw her melancholic face I decided to use her for Halloween project :D anyway you can find the image here ...

Patterned papers used are:
* Spirited collection 'Conjure' from Authentique Paper
* Steampunk Speels collection from Graphic 45 : 'Frightful Folly' and 'Vintage Voyage'

Cutting Die used: Impression Obsession Spider Web Halloween die

Embossing powder used:
* Stampendous Aged Wine embossing enamels
* Ranger Holographic embossing powder for spiders and it's web

then the best part.. adding embellishments... black lace, black feather, small bottle filled with beads, plastic skull, pen nib, metal charms, pearl chain and paper flower... also adding red and black acrylic paint here and there.. and here's the final result:

I used Distress Ink for colouring the image, with colours as follow:

for Skin: Tattered Rose with Vintage Photo (also for eyes) +Aged Mahogany for her cheek and lips
for Hair: Walnut Stain
Purple colour for outfit used: Dusty Concorde + Black Soot
Red colour for outfit used: Aged Mahogany + Black Soot
Brown colour for outfit and trunk: Brushed Corduroy
for bird: Peeled Paint and Aged Mahogany

inside look of the faux book:

that's all for today... cya next month ;)

A gift of delight

Good morning all!!

Newbie here again with a creation I so very much enjoyed!  Today I have used the gorgeously devine Co Co La belle digi By Heather Valentin.  I have made a gorgeous gift bag with it.

Here is the beginning of the project...the gorgeous digi and the new Promarkers Spring Summer 2014 set. I also used the Rose Pink Promarker to colour in the outside to match in later with the lovely creata mirror card!
Here she is...isn't she just juicy!!! love her! And this is the studio light paper pad I picked to co ordinate with the colours used.
The final creation, using joy dies, a brown take away bag and Victorian velvet distress ink!
Hope you like my creation today and get inspired to have a look at all the other gorgeous digis heather valentin has created in the Lacy Sunshine shop.
Love michelle

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday  to you!

What  a beautiful  day it is today up north!  I  woke up  this morning to this  glorious view from  the  deck of our cabin  and thought I  would  share it  with.

  There is  something so  relaxing  about being up north in  God's  Country.  Today the  air is  crisp. One  knows  Jack Frost is on  his  way in the  next  few weeks.  So it's nice  to  be  able to  enjoy  the  touch of  autumn   for  the  weekend.  Plus,  for me  as  an  artist  it's  great inspiration  to have a change of pace  from city life.

Before, I  end this post  today....   please make  sure you  check out  the Noor! Designs USA Blog!  I  really  am  thrilled   with this amazing  venture  with Jolanda and  Noor! Designs:)

Also  make  sure  you   mark  your calendars  for Sept. 22, come  back here  for  a HUGE  Lacy Sunshine Announcement!

Hope   you  have  a  wonderful crafty   day  everyone and please  take  a minute  or  two our of  your  day  to enjoy the  world  around  you!

Hugs, Heather

A Sugi Filled Day.

Hi Sunshiny Crafters.

Fall is in the air... ahhhhhhhh! It's  probably my  most  favorite  time  of   year. Well ok  a  very  close  second to  Winter. 

There is  a  slight  chill in the  air and with the leaves  beginning to   change  and  that   means... drumroll please......  Halloween is   around the corner!!!!  Ok,  I  don't  want to  jump   to  Halloween  too fast.... we must  enjoy the  beautiful  array  of  colors   Mother  Nature  bestows on  us, as the  leaves  change  from  green to the  glorious golds and  reds.  Pure nature sweetness.

Sweetness.....did I  say? Well,  at   Lacy  Sunshine...  we  must   be  referring to  my  newest  character...Sugar Plum Sweet Urchin.  She  goes  by "Sugi"  for  short.  
Below are  some  amazing creations  by my  a few  of my   Sunshine   Designers ...Thea, Ria, Gill  and Caroline.  Featured  is  my Sugi Sweet Urchin and Sugi Christmas Angel.  Isn't  it  amazing   how  various  colors  provide  different  magical inspirations?
Some sophisticated. Some Heavenly and  Some  just  pure Sugary Fun!   Thank  designers for  creating some  amazing  eye candy!  

Now if you  want to  add  lil Sugi  to  your  crafting world... visit my  shoppe  and indulge.
Have a terrific  day everyone!

Good morning

It is my turn to showcase a project as part of the Creative Team. The theme is Autumn/Fall so I have chosen to use 2 digi images of Rory and merge them together as PNG images to create my card.

I have used Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves and Rorys Giant Pumpkin from the shoppe HERE

I have coloured the digis using Copic markers

I have stamped and coloured the pumpkins, coloured the bling with copics and added some ribbon and flowers from my stash.

I hope you like my bit of autumnal inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon
