Lilac Ballerina
 
 
Hi there crafter's
 
I hope you are loving all the samples for the new
 

Beautiful Ballerina's

 

designed by the lovely Jayne Nestorenko.

 
I have loads still to show you but will start to share others too.
The above card was a very simple one to make.
I started with a 15cm x 15cm white base card, matted and layered
 using a deep purple, then another white layer,
 then finally the lilac patterned paper.
 
I then used a die cut to add to the centre in white. I used the
Hougie board to add lattice to the centre of the die and added
Yes you guessed it!! purple glue dots.
I also added glue dots to the corner's to help bring in the deeper tones.
Added a lilac ribbon and the kneeling ballerina.
 
I have used my Promarker's to colour her in because I didn't have
my Prisma pencils at the time. I think I am going to try mixing
the pencils and Promarker's together. Some friends from facebook
use the Copic's and Spectrum's with them so it has to be worth a try.
Because their work is stunning, Linda, Hellen and Jacqui
 to name but  a few. Great inspirational colouring.
 
Lots of new lovely idea's are in the pipe line at Nestorenko HQ
so I'm really excited to see what we will be using in the future.
 
Myself and Darren are heading down to Rugby again at the weekend
for another workshop with Jayne and all her crafting friends.
I am so looking forward to meeting up with all the regulars again
because we missed the last workshop due to being on our holidays.
 
Then the last workshop is the weekend retreat which we are so looking forward to
being able to have plenty of time to talk as well as craft.
Christmas themed projects will be well under way by then,
but I don't know about you but I still have a large amount
of family cards to make yet and people keep having birthdays too!
How inconsiderate are they lol!! Good excuse to make another card though
so not really complaining.
 
Right the sun is trying to break through the clouds so I'll say goodbye for today
and go and hang my washing out, get my other housework jobs
done. Then I can craft for an hour or so.
 
Hope you all have a really good weekend too with lots of crafting.
 
See you next time
 
until then

Jennie, this card is another beauty, I love it! So that's how you've been getting the lattice effect, I thought it was a die you were using! I love the image and the colours you've used for this card too! You're a very talented lady! Happy crafting! xx
