ello people! How you all have been? I miss you all! While I was away my internet was not the most constant..so I was just following and checking a little at time. But here I am!!
Today I am sharing you a project that I made specially for the launch of a super cool group BOOK ENDZ. My lovely friend Suzanne, from Color me Creative Classroom and also the (awesome and really up to date ) Magazine Through the Craft Door Room (by Suzanne and Marty) is launching today a group that mix two thing that a lot of folks love..Book reading and Crafting!
If you are one of us that have a very hyper creative mind…come along!! To celebrate the beginning of this group a KINDLE and so many others amazing gifts (hint hint!) will be given away thought-out the party! Join in the challenges and lets have some fun!
Here is the project I made inspired by the theme of the very first book over BookEndz group. Come one over to discover a little more about the story and share you ideas! I used Gilli Asian rubber stamp (see how Gilli Stamps proves that can be used in whatever way you creative works!!!) colored with copic markers and also using the paper piecing technique. To emphasize and also give a more dimensional look I made sure to add more color over Gilli’s robe. I also created a little Obbi (traditional belt) for Gilli. Well, it is an oriental mixed look . My papers are regular card stock from my personal collection and the pattern one is from my Japanese paper collection and also from Martha Stewart stack. The trellis was made using EK punch toped with a little stickles on top.
As you can see I dig dip into the Asian vibe LOL…As an embellishment I made mini origami butterflies..and colored with copic and added stickles for glitz. To set the mood I also doodle a little stylized cherry bloosson tree next to Gilli using copic markers. No asian look is complete without lanterns..so I made these cute little Fan/lantern from scratch. The details were made by hand using Copic marker, multiliners and also white pen.
Would you like a bit more inspiration? No problem. I have this project I made a little while ago and I think is sooo fit for this occasion..Since I am wishing all the luck to my dear friend Suzanne in her new group! You can find more ins about this project here.
Now hurry! You can win some cool gifts while chatting, creating and making new friends over Book Endz! See you there!
Hey don’t forget..Gilli will be 1 year soon! So if you are into celebrations…let’s say it is Gilli’ Birthday but some of you will be getting the gift! So keep in touch….the party season is just getting started!
