Moonlight wolf

Welcome to another Friday! 
Today I will show you how I have decorated a folder for my important documents. 

I just love this paper with a wolf from Stamperia. 
It’s so beautiful. I felt I must use it for something I will see often. :) 

First I cut out the paper in a circle and glued in on the folder. I always like my papers distressed in the edges. Then I added white crackle paint through two different stencils from Tim Holtz. I stamped in black with a stamp from Seth Apter.

This stamp is so fun because it’s so many possibilities with it. And I really like the small circles.

I used Distress markers in turquoise and blue to add some color in some of the circles. And a white pen to make effect. 

I used some brown oxide with water to make some splash for vintage feeling. And I also used a text stamp with “no text” from Prima. 

I added some gears and wrote my text with some letters from my stash. 

More gears and a text also from Stamperia, and the last thing was a bit more splash, but with white color. 

Thanks for looking.
Hugs Milo ♡

Happy Sat! Hope everyone is having an amazing crafty day! Today I have just a quick step by step on a three page journal spread!

I started with the finnabair mixed media tissue paper (Flutter) i used gel medium to attach then more on top to seal it good!

Here I just add a soft layer of white gesso in different places.

with a stencil I add modeling paste and heat set that with my heat gun.

this is always my most favorite part! Pulling out colors! I grabbed my Infusions by (paper artsy) I used (Are you Cerise) and (Sunset Beach), I then added some random stamping.

then to finish it off I dry brushed very lightly the texture. added white splatters and cute out two butterflies from the same paper. i just attached the butterflies to this chipboard (probably the ones you get from martina shop when she sends your packages!. i added sewing thred behind the butterflies along with finnabair gems! sentiments also from finnabair.

Ballet woman in a frame

Hello crafters! 
Its been a while since I posted something here, But now my life is better settled and I have the possibility to concentrate on my art works again. 
I have made a frame with a ballet dancer. 

First I used decopage glue to fix this thin paper on a white paper inside the frame.

I used a stencil from Tim Holtz and added paste and pink plus grey spray from Tim Holtz. 

Here I have added different colors of alcohol ink to make the pattern from the stencil to be seen better. 

I used Aqua pencils to color the woman, and added water plus those acrylic paint on top. 

Here is with only Aqua pencils and water. You can see How ot looks with the acrylic colors on the pictures down. 

I added some lace, around the frame and on top. Stars from my stash and a lot of flowers down. I used pale pink metallic colors to take down the dark around her. I was not happy with the very dark. And I also used some pale green on top and also on the prills. 

On the flowers i added alcohol ink and Tim Holtz sprays in pink and purple. And on top of that I added white crackle paint. 
The stars is dropped with Gold alcohol ink. 

Thank you for looking. 
Hugs Milo
