Today with Made With Love

Hello friends, how are you?

It's the end of the school holidays now and we are all geared up for the second term of Primary One! I'm thankful that it's been a fun journey so far for eldest, not so fun for me as I juggle my part time work in digital marketing and managing these three wiggly monkeys!

But there's always time for crafting eh?

Today, I'm sharing a project I created with the lovely goodies from Made With Love. As usual, I will have a supply list at the end of this post, and remember - these gorgeous products and more can be found at MWL's store at 313 Somerset B2.

Here's the project I created with Bo Bunny's Petal Lane:

I love the set of papers DT coordinator Aida has packed for me, and they are just perfect for a LO of my little girl. As I went through them and saw the black piece with the polka dots, I knew I had to do something high contrast - which is quite suitable for this little girl who is so different from her brothers.

My background was done with first embossing white embossing powder after using a script stamp on the paper. It acts as a resist when I subsequently put the paint on.

What I got in the kit was a set of acrylic paint from Dina Wakeley and I love these. Really intense and bright colors to spruce up your projects. Now the colors were a bit strong for the softness of the papers, so instead of splashing everything on with a brush, I used a sea sponge to apply. The result is a lovely sandy look which resembles dandelions in the air. I started with the Magenta, mixed in some white for a light pink shade. The yellow I used last just as an accent. This is what the sea sponge I used looked like:

Now I love Blue Fern Studios' chipboards and they are also available from MWL. I've used a doily here which I first embossed with white embossing powder. Followed by a coat of the amazing metallic wax from Prima Marketing. The texture is smooth and I applied it with my fingers. To remove, just gently wash your hands with soap. I love the effect it had on my EP, as well as on the metal bits.

In the floral cluster, I had white roses which I painted on with the left overs of my paint for the background. Don't waste the good stuff!

That's all I have for today, catch you again soon!
