Simply create Too challenge - use pattern paper

Hello Mixed Media lovers! Today is the start of new challenge at Simply Create Too! This month, we have an optional twist: use pattern paper. Therefore, I got my favorite paper from the AB Studio collection "Be gentle" and created this lovely shaker from the packaging of a Finnabair wax.

And I decided to do the same... [Lire la suite]

Simply Create Too inspirational post : Part of Your world (Make a shaker card)

Dear Mixed Media lovers,   Today is the day to share with you my last creation for this month Simply Create Too challenge : we had to make a shaker card. As you may have noticed by now, cards are not my thing. Although I enjoy making them once in a while, I don't really make them on a regular basis. So I asked If I could make something else instead of a card. And I could. So here it comes ! I have been inspired a lot by the song "Part of your world" from the movie the little mermaid.I wanted to make something mermaidy and that... [Lire la suite]
