In one of my blog
hops I discovered the paper beads made by Jean,.
Here’s what I’ve done using one of her free designs.
For this project I used plain printer paper, but I’m going to try using heavier paper too, just to see how the beads will look like. I also added some pink wood beads in order to vary the colors, shapes and sizes.
For the coating I used a glue and varnish 2 in 1 product in order to give the beads strength and a little bit of shine.
No matter what I start with, as an idea, I seem to always come back to vintage cards. And I love silhouettes!
This one was quite easy to make, as it is not so intricate. I promise to try more complicated patterns, when I will be more skilled with the cutting knife...:)
Today being the International Women's Day, I thought... what better way to celebrate it than by making a cheerful butterflies card...So, I got may inspiration from the latest issue of Paper Crafts Magazine ...
The rainbow colored butterflies were so lovely, I couldn't resist trying my hand at that card. I hope it brightens you day too...:) Enjoy!
A few days ago, I added the Google translate button on the home page for my new friends from abroad. I must say, I tried it out and the results were disappointing. So, I decided to post in English from now on...:)
Here goes the first!
Some time ago, I bought a pack of vintage looking paper. Here's what I managed to do with it:
for the first one I used a "lady with a hat" silhouette from Angelika Kipp's book called "Filigree decorations in black and white",
the second one is a combination of quilling and a rub on blue sticker:
And the third is a 3D card where I used pre cut drawings from the "pampered pets" collection.
