Monthly stencil: It's all in your Hands

Welcome August and the 8th monthly stencil of this year: 'It's in Your Hands'. I liked so much this design that I decided to make two stencils, same design but with one hand larger, and with a different text, suitable especially for Art Journaling. Let's dive into some samples:
A couple of cards with a grunge, gel printed background:
Two large cards made with Distress Oxide:
Here's I used the second stencil 'Hold my Hand':
And a black, large  tag:
Both designs are already available in my Etsy shop:

Video Tutorial: Fan tags and new stencil set

Hello everyone! To fight against this hot weather what better way than using a lovely fan? I've been given a white one lately (ready to be painted over) and from that one sparked the idea to make a new set of stencil fan shape, perfect to make thank you tags to attach to my orders.
Here's a video where I show how I made the fan tags and shrinked embellishments:
These are gel printed tags:
A couple of cards that I love, with those little paper dolls peeking out from the fan:
And some shrinked embellishments, so cute:
These are the new stencils, available in my Etsy shop:

Slow Stitched Fabric Journal

My latest stitched project (lately I stopped a bit, too hot even in the evening) a mini fabric journal where I stitched some tiny stitched embellishments with a cover made out of cheese cloth: I was fascinated by the organic stitching by Mirjan Gielen, so I bought one of her tutorial and tried it. I loooove it!

VideoTutorial: Upcycled Kitchen Roll Sheets

If you follow me on Instagram maybe you noticed that at some point I got seriously hooked by a technique showed by the lovely and talented artist Cat Rains: making beautiful collage papers out napkins and other thin materials. So, for a week and more I covered in glue every napkins I have in my home and then I ended with kitchen roll sheets gel printed or just dirty! For more details about this technique please have a look at Cat's tutorials.
Wait til the end of the video for some blopers. Have fun :-D

 I've created some faux tea bags with motivational mini tags inside.
