BRIGHTENED UP {Art by Miran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for October is FALL COLOURS.

I have been happily crafting again and this time with this gorgeous girl called PEACEFUL THOUGHTS created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really is so pretty and a natural beauty.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase PEACEFUL THOUGHTS here and here which is available in digi and rubber stamp format at Treasured Times Stamps.

The folded embellishments have been created with circle and flower punches. She has been coloured with H2O water colour pencils and I have used a blender pencil. I must say the blender pencil really helps soften and blend the pencil strokes.  The sky and ground has been coloured with dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design papers and brads are from my stash.

  10. Desire,
    There is always something that strikes me on your cards. The green bird, brads and the small piece on her hair bow. The polka dot and striped papers are a wonderful background. Thank you for posting your art with us this week during our 152nd challenge at Word Art Wednesday.

  16. Such a pretty card (with the stitching around the sky line) and a beautiful sentiment. I always look around your entire card at all the colors, images and embellishments, Desire, and then I look for the sentiment. This is precious. Love the little flower hanging over the sentiment, and the sweetness in Mi Ran's image. The scalloped flower centers are fabulous! hugs, de
