A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Valentine Girl - Artbymiran

Good Morning to you all on this extremely wet & windy Thursday morning!  Nothing unusual for any of us here in the UK at the moment eh?

This morning I'm sharing a beautiful image, which I came across for the very first time at the weekend.  It is by Mi Ran of Artbymiran and, honestly, I was sooooo excited to browse through her fabulous artwork and didn't know which one to choose first!  Mi Ran has a GRAND OPENING on her blog HERE where she is also offering a giveaway contest and free image.  You can also click on my link at the side, which will take you straight there.  Either way, you seriously don't want to miss out on these fabulous, new images!

After much debating, I chose this very elegant Valentine Girl to create with and I'm so pleased with how she turned out.  Apologies in advance though ..... this is a picture heavy post! LOL.
I chose to decorate my heart trinket box, which I bought from The Range just after Christmas.  I adore these boxes and have so much fun prettying them up :)
I coloured this little beauty with Copics:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11   Hair:  E13, E35, E50, E51
Dress:   G21, G94, G99   Rose:  R11, R20, RV42, E50, E51
The papers used are from Lili of the Valley and are called The Antebellum.

Other items used:
Pearl String & Flowers from The Hobby House
Berries from Live & Love Crafts
Ivory Satin Ribbon & Peach Grosgrain from stash
