EMBRACE ...
{Guest Artist:  Ezine - Art with no Boundaries - Project 1}

I am very honoured and thrilled to have been accepted as a Guest Artist By Chris from Art with no Boundaries' 2nd Edition of their Monthly Ezine.  

It was wonderful to have the opportunity to create with these gorgeous digital images designed by the very talented Chris Stern herself. 

For my first design I used the Striped Tree with one of the Big Tree Sentiments that comes with it in a set and you can purchase it here.  For me, this specific sentiment compliments the tree images beautifully. The tree was printed in three different sizes on white cardstock and the middle sized tree flipped horizontally.  Then the trees were fussy cut, silver brads attached and foam tape applied behind the tallest tree and the sentiment. for some dimension.

The black lace design paper is from FabScraps and the pink script/polka dot double sided design paper is from Echo Park.  I have created a twisted easel card design.






Here is a tutorial for the semi-circle paper folding embellishments:


So hop on over to Ezine - Art with No Boundaries for some creative inspiration.

Venturing over at the following challenges with this:
Thank you so much for stopping by and hope to see you here soon.
