SMILES {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Can you believe it that we are already heading towards the end of the first month of 2015.  Hope everyone's year has started off on a good note. I have used this super cute little girl all busy in the garden, planting out some love. She is called  PANSIE.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase PANSIE here

The scalloped semi circles have been created with scalloped circle punches. She has been coloured with Copics. The buttons and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment and word art background are from Paulette {Create with TLC} .

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

  • Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge
  • 613 Avenue Create - ATG + Optional Twist
  • Inspiration Destination - ATG
  • Word Art Wednesday: Anything goes with uplifting sentiment 
  • Sister Act Card Challenge - ATG
  • Snippets - The semi circles and all the design papers are left over snippets of cardstock I had in my scraps file
  • Artistic Inspirations - ATG with Triangle Twist (the folded corners around the image)
    Craft Your Passion - ATG
    Dream Valley - ATG
    Love to Scrap - ATG

    Inky Impressions - Folds (centre step design and folded corners)
    Pennys Paper Crafty - ATG
