You Are My Beauty

Hello, I am here with a sneak peek from Crafter's Companion.
This is a new set called Fuchsia Flower from Paint Fusion - you can keep watching RIGHT HERE for the release.
Let me share my project and a few steps it took to make this one.

I started with these simple tools to color my Fuchsia images and leaves...I love to use colored pencils and mineral spirits and a stump.
After using a combination of colors I like to have a soft towel to "wipe" the image a little, it kind of buffs it nicely to a clean shine. Each of the leaves and flower pieces were fussy cut-You should know this is one of my favorite things to do with images.

I found a great gift box picture frame and decided to accent with the fuchsia and leaf images. So sorry about the shine, I wanted to tone the shade of pink on the box down a little with a purple shimmery paint from Creative Inspirations Paint.

 Here is a couple close ups of the vine I used and attached the leaves and Fuchsia buds with different levels of pop dots for dimension.
 I really like how these flowers and leaves looked colored...these images are available to use with paints and
Sheena Douglass has many videos showing her beautiful designs..
Crafter's Companion has many beautiful flowers that are being added with The Paint Fusion line, so thrilled I got to play with this set.
That beauty in the picture frame is my oldest daughter, I think I will use this as a gift for her, I can add some gifts inside the box and she can re-use it then.
