    From Miniatures to Alice in Wonderland (+ Garden Sale!)

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Back in Stock, Bella Ayers, Fruit Paradise Kit, Rubber Stamps, Sale

    Flora’s Court of Quotes by Miz Bella (Kimberly Ayers)

    So sweet! And I love the muddled, Victorian color palette! This is Bella’s project using last month’s Fruit Paradise Kit. (Did you recognize it? The bright summer fruit colors from that kit are nowhere in evidence!) Here’s an intro by Bella to explain some of her process:

    I love the little index tabbed book from the Fruit Paradise Kit, and had a good time putting it together while watching British murder mysteries. Art and murder somehow kind of goes together sometimes (at least in my reality it does…)

    It was a bit tedious with basic cutting and pasting, but the fun part was using the Time Is An Illusion Collection Pack with my new Finetec Watercolors that are full of mica and amazing! The paper pack has a lot of turquoise and rust shades, with gold, blue and mauve accents and I used the watercolors to enhance the colors (and on some of the images but couldn’t catch it on camera). Sounds like a weird mashup but it’s all works well together, and I think the Time Is An Illusion collection is my new favorite paper to use! Another product I enjoy working with are the ATC Ticket Journal. It was covered in paper from the Time Is An Illusion pad, with images from The Court of Flora Collage Sheet. Then I added quotes about flowers and perfume, two of my favorite things.

    The only thing I’d consider a technique is snipping the Stitched Leaf Ribbon and putting it around the image of the Narcissus without tweezers. (What a pain in the arse that was!)

    I have an upcoming project that I’ll be using Time Is An Illusion with, bringing family skeletons out of the closet, so stay tuned!

    See more photos of this current project in Bella’s blog post; plus here’s her supply list. Oh, and check below, as today’s new sale includes that Court of Flora Collage Sheet that Bella used throughout her project!
