My new blog + some old projects

Hi all!

Welcome to my new blog! I’m so excited to unveil this look of my new blog. After about almost two years with the same look, I decided to give my blog a new name and a facelift to better reflect my style and aesthetic preferences. This has been a long time in making which also explains why I have been quiet lately. I am simply in love with how it turned out. Hopefully, you guys like it too.

In the past few months I had finished quite a new projects and unfortunately due to all the work going on on my blog, I could not share them here. But you better watch-out for this space as I may just bombard you with a lot of picture heavy posts.

For now, I thought I would share with you all these two projects I finished for a couple of swaps I had participated with some beautiful fellow craft-ers here in Dubai.

The first one is an altered shadow box from Ikea.

I have used a lot of Prima flowers on this project. In the background I have used some pink felt fabric. I have also used some white gesso though some brick stencil on the panel.

Here is a close up.

The bird cage as well as the little birdie was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. Later I went ahead and heat embossed it using some gold embossing powder.. I also added some glitter in the embossing powder to get this shimmery look.

I did the same with the black frame die cut. I used some black embossing powder with some glitter on that too.

I love pearls which I am sure you can make out after seeing this project.

Now for the second project I made for another swap. This is an altered matchbox.

Those blooms are yet another Silhouette Cameo cut out. The pattern paper used on the match box are from my favorite paper pad from DCWV called the Lemon Flower Stack.

I scraped the box with sandpaper and colored it with black acrylic paint.

I filled the box with some goodies for my swap partner!

That is all for today.

See you guys in the next post!

Love,
