CHEER {Art by Miran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for August is BACK TO SCHOOL.

I have been crafty again and this time with this gorgeous girl called BOOKAHOLIC KAITE created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really looks like she is ready to absorb some knowledge.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase BOOKAHOLIC KAITE here.

The flower embellishments have been created with square punches. She has been coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design paper and brads are from my stash.




I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

  64. Hi Desire, This is so, so pretty. Love the chocolate colors and the fabulous folded flowers. They remind me of teabag folding which I haven't done in some time. After seeing these I am inspired to try my hand at them again. I enjoy your tutorials and hope you will be adding these little lovelies soon.
