MAKE TODAY A CELEBRATION {ArtbyMiran}

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran's Challenge 2}

Art by Miran is launching second challenge today. All their challenges will be ANYTHING GOES as long as your project has a hand coloured image. So hop over here to have a look at their second challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, as I also have a showcase project with an Art by Miran design over there.

I have been playing again with these gorgeous images created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.   You can purchase these images herehere and here


No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The images have been coloured with H2O water colour pencils and the brads are from my stash.  The striped design paper is from BasicGrey.  The sentiment has been coloured with dry chalks and is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The corners have been created by folding square pieces of design paper.  The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.



I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
Thanks again for your lovely visits here.

  18. How pretty your little Easter girls are, Desire! Matching outfits, and so helpful in spreading the celebration in your fantastic setting! Really incredible artwork! So how is Easter celebrated in your part of the world? It must be approaching winter when it is celebrated. I'd love to see photos or hear stories! Here, Spring has either fully arrived, or has nearly arrived. Depending on the weather, children have Easter Egg huts with brightly colored eggs and they search for the decorated eggs wherever their parents have hidden them (indoors or out). Many ask their parents to hide the eggs over and over for more searches because of how fun it is. Churches have special celebrations, depending on the denomination, and an assortment of customs and traditions. Families get together and share a special Easter Meal.
    Always, thank you for sharing your wonderful talent with the rest of us! hugs, de
