Aurora Wings Challenge #60: Recycled- Shaker Card using Miyabi (Full Version)

 Well Hello again!!! We have been busy over at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog getting ready for this fun challenge!! We are all about the earth and environment and this challenge we would love to see you reuse, recycle and repurpose on your project!! With that challenge in mind I have a shaker card to show you today. I used scraps of paper that really should have been recycled for the cherry blossoms and plastic from a strawberry container to seal my shaker pieces in. Take a look!!
This is the full version of Miyabi so it includes all the flowers you see in the background. You can also purchase her without the background. I have so much fun coloring her up every time I do!! I colored her a couple times a few years ago while recovering from surgery and it was such a delight to go back and see how much I have grown in my coloring in the last few years!!
For today's project I colored Miyabi up as a 5x7 image. I stamped the sentiment in that lovely open spot Mitzi left for us for just such a purpose I am sure. Then I cut the border out of a Kraft cardstock (which is generally made with recycled paper, no?) I placed the plastic on that and then foam taped around the edge. Then I cut the tiny little cherry blossoms out of some scrap pink paper and placed them on the plastic. I finished by placing the image over all of that and adding "With Love" in the bottom right corner. 

I love how this turned out and I honestly can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge!! Aren't some of the other designers projects just awesome!!!??

If you would like to have Miyabi(full version) all to yourself you can find here:

Have a fabulous couple weeks!!! And have sooo much fun with this challenge!!! Thanks for popping by!!

Aurora Wings Challenge #58: Clean and Simple; Inspirational Art using Flower Moon

Well Hello there!! I am so excited to share this latest peice with you!! Remember last month I said I had 3 different ideas for "Flower Moon"? Well this month I'm sharing another one with you!
"Shoot for the Moon even if you miss you'll land among the Stars"

I just love this image!! Its just as thrilling for work with a second time as the first!! I really wanted to make the moon look like it was glowing in this one and I really think I accomplished that. I did each of the flowers in a two tone almost so they would all have a touch of that soft yellow in them.

I hope you can see that two tone a little better in the close ups!!

When I had it all colored I popped it into an 8x8 frame to be hung on the wall.

And there you have it my friends. My clean and simple project for you!
Thanks for popping by today!! I do hope you will play along with us HERE

If you would like to play with Flower Moon yourself you can find her here:

Aurora Wings Challenge: #56- Anything Goes- Nursery Art using "Flower Moon"

Hello Hello All!! I have another beautiful Aurora Wings image to share with you today!! And hopefully in a really unique way no one has used it yet... Eeeks!! I'm so excited about this and a couple other projects using this image. I immediately was inspired by this image and had 3 ideas pop into my head just like that! So today I will show you the first and next month you will see at least one of the others!!
This is the beautiful "Flower Moon" image!! Isn't it stunning? And sooo different!! I have never seen anything like it!! I LLLLLOOOOVVVVEEE it!!
So wanna see what I did with it?
I colored her up bright and beautiful with a baby girls nursery or toddler room in mind! That is if my little girls don't steal it first!! LOL 
Isn't it awesome!! I love the way Mitzi has the hair flowing through the whole moon; popping out in different places!! It's just so cool!!

Here she is a little closer up without any frame around her... I love how the flowers and different elements come right out to the edge for you; so you don't have a big uncolored area ya know?

Just a few close ups to show you all the stunning details Mitzi has drawn in for us!! All those water droplets(as I saw them) and all those different layers of different flowers!! Amazing!!
Thank you for another amazing image Mitzi!!!

Now if you want "Flower Moon" too you will find her here:

And make sure you play along this time with our "Anything Goes Challenge" on the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog!!

See you all next time!! Thanks so much for popping by!!
