Mother's job

I found this sentiment (funny but so true) from my scrap box
yesterday evening and did a big tag using it.

Happy Mid Summer -day!!
(it's a national holiday day in Finland
and sun is shining lovely - finally)

and colouring with watercolors.

Vintage Holiday girl

Gecko Galz has these beautiful sketchy
images that I'd love to color with watercolor.
BUT my printer does not take watercolorpaper,
it always gets stuck.
So this time I tried a new technique for me:
I printed the image on regular paper,
then but some clear Gesso on them,
and then colored the images with watercolors.

Here's the first one:

Sketchy Butterfly

AAA Cards has a new challenge and
the theme is Butterfly.

I used two stamps from AALL & Create
stamp sets. Don't know if my butterfly is 
supposed to be a butterfly, but that's how I see it 
(feelers and wings).

Just stamped the images, colored a bit with Copic
and that's it.

Memory Dex Card; merboy

Well, don't really know if the "merboy" is a
word at all or are the all under water "people" mermaids.
Maybe it is the right word for this cute rider.

So I took a dex card, few bookpages, magnetic words, 
peel off stickers, paints and ink with the Gecko Galz 
monthly image challenge image, coral images are also 
from GG.

Altered book; break free

I found this old book from library,
they have this recycling cart where you can
bring your old books and also take books for free.

The book pages are very thin, so I took some
of and glued some together.
I've already done some pages, using just 
mermaid images, but when I saw 
this months Gecko Galz Gothic challenge image
I knew it was perfect for my book.

Book has some pictures in it and this is the last 
spread, it has those cool "statues" on it.
So I added the image and die cuts, did some stamping,
used white wax and some white paint.

Here's how the cover looks after I altered it a little:

ATC's; Doll mermaids

Summer is here and so are the mermaids in Gecko Galz blog.
This months stamp challenge image has a bunch of mermaids.

Instead of using a image as it is, I created
ATC in each mermaid, background paper is also from
Gecko Galz. I colored the images with Copics and embossed
them with sparkling clear powder. Also embossed the edges
of the cards, the bling is very sparkly but camera did not
quite got it.

I'd like to enter to these challenges:

ATC; Steampunk seahorse

Great image at the Gecko Galz Steampunk challenge

I made a mixed media ATC using gears and "screws",
embossing powder, wax, golden paint, black pen and 
lots of glossy.
