Good Morning everyone!
Here I am with another Sari post forIn case you could not tell...I am in LOVE with Gwen's Irresistible India Embellished Sari Scraps- just saying!
The base of my Journal contains a mix of beautiful papers from Gwen's assorted paper packs as well as some of her beautiful Irresistible India Washi tape!
Have you seen some of the tapes she carries? Gorgeous! oops...back to what I was saying...
After covering the front of the book with Gwen's papers and tapes, I added a couple of cutouts to either side. Saving the center as I knew I had something special for that space.
The cutouts are from Gwen's Downloadable Collages-the Irresistible India Collection
Next came Gwen's Decorative Flower Stamen Medallion Stencil
Another new favorite stencil of mine! I just love this design Gwen!!!
It all started with some modeling paste and Magicals from Lindy's...a Flower Stamen Stencil in the center, and a few petals stenciled off the sides of the cover...but as you see here and in other photos to follow,it did not stop there-ohhh no!
I found this adorable little archway with opening doors in the Curated Mixed Media Stash Packs- the Jewelry Parts Pack from Gwen's store!
this just had to go in the center!and the delicious color added to the stenciling?
I'll come back to that...
I added this Gorgeousness piece of Irresistible India Embellished Sari Scrap in purple. Purple is my favorite color and I was just feeling it that day!
After adding it,I realized I had not a large selection of purple beads...after scouting around my studio-woo hoo! I remembered the beautiful Amethyst stones my Tribe Sister Linda Edkins Wyatt gifted me!
What a perfect way to trim up this Sari!another cut out from Gwen's Downloadable Collages-the Irresistible India Collection
Now,onto a few pics of the colorful stenciling aka bead work I referred to earlier
Of course there needed to be bead work added!
I just never knew how long and tedious and how difficult it is one handed to do! heehee
But I did it! And again, another shout out to my Tribe Sister Linda for these fabulously beautiful beads!
So you might notice a bit of white-ishness in between the beads. I added an overall coating of 3-D Crystal Lacquer to hold the beads securely to the cover.
and finally another simply exquisite Irresistible India Embellished Sari Scrap
-in Purple. Such a beautiful way to finish the edging-don't you think?What's inside the tiny doors you ask? You will have to wait till I return with the backside of the Journal to find out! Stay tuned!
Thanks so much for your visit! I hope you found my post inspiring and maybe you saw some products from Gwen's store, that you can't live without! heehe I always do!
So glad you came by and I will see you again,very soon!
Peace & Love
