Now is the time - fall

Happy Monday!
Fall is in full swing in our part of the world, that means you will see it at least in few of my upcoming projects
Here's my first fall-theme layout of this season.


From my stash I have picked a neutral light paper for my background (Dreamer from 7 Dots Studio) and I have complemented it with the items from my Zeus and Zoe kit.
You will see few scraps of papers, authentic old newspaper, washi tape and cotton lace. In my kit I also had this sweet flower vine (Prima) and a flower pack from Manor house - these I saved for another project, but the packaging came handy! The beautiful brown roses are cut out from this package :) Finally a golden button instead of a brad and some Prima chipboards to add dimension. Zeus and Zoe kits contain such a variation of items, you can do so much with it!

Thanks for stopping by today, wishing you a great week! Don't forget to have a look at Zeus and Zoe Etsy store.

3 cards by Tusia Lech

Hello,

Here is Tusia Lech with 3 cards. I created all of them using gorgeous kits from Zeus&Zoe and handmade flowers, you can purchase also at Zeus&Zoe etsy store.



For all cards as a background paper I have used 7 Dots Studio collections - all embellies come from Zeus&Zoe etsy store.


Burlap star, that you can see below, was covered by me with gesso and than I created some splatters using Indian Ink and White Ecoline.







For this card I have used also wonderful, orange tulle.






Last card was created using gorgeous flowers and beautiful laces and doilies - all from Zeus&Zoe etsy store.








I hope you liked my cards :)

Charllie is back in the buzz!!

TODAY , TOMORROW & SOMEDAY
Hey I'm cak and hope you guys miss me lol !! nah it's so busy at school and such but here I am sharing with you a wonderful work of mine :)
This one of my favorite covers of all surely the vintage I wanted . It seems so hard to achieved but it isn't , I used a lot of mica powders and sprays to get the effect . The background was covered up using Prima's Finnabair sunset and sunrise collection  and to match the whole picture well I used inks and a lot of Zeus and Zoe product . The flowers are from Prim which is also available from the store. I wanted the whole thing to be clarified as vintage that why I made it like that :). The title was used to remind me that there will be another day to achieved what I want to improve my sketches and another to do thing in life and also there will be next time :) (just try and practice to make you the best )

Get Lost Somewhere with Dana


Hi! Dana here today sharing a fall-themed layout. The gorgeous hues of orange and red foliage is one of my favorite things about the Autumn season. I've been following the restoration of the Chateau de Gudanes, a castle in the south of France, and this is just one of the stunning photos of this gorgeous historic monument.


I've used 7 Dots Studio patterned paper and stickers from my Zeus and Zoe Kit to build up the layers under the photo. I'd love to get lost exploring the grounds and rooms of this castle!


I've tucked several vintage postcards under the photo. I loved the gorgeous bouquet of flowers on this card and the script on the other. Both of these cards are embossed, which really adds some great dimension to my page.


I created a small embellishment cluster on the right-hand side of the page to help balance the design.

Thanks for stopping by today! Please check out the Zeus and Zoe social media sites for more inspiration. If you'd like to pick up a one-of-a-kind Zeus and Zoe Kit for yourself, stop by the Zeus and Zoe Etsy Shop or email Marivic Clifton for a personal order.

Love Transcends

When I go thrift-shopping and I am fortunate enough to pick up vintage or antique pieces of lace or crocheted items I'm in absolute heaven! I love the feel of these precious items and as I run my fingers over them gingerly, I'm almost transported through time where I can envision a table dressed, a frock adorned or busy fingers pulling a thread through a needle or crochet hook.

I savor every step that leads up to re-using, re-purposing and saving these lovely heirlooms to create something new that will be cherished for perhaps yet another generation. After I handwash and dry even the tiniest bit of lace, trim or appliqué, I lay them to dry and enjoy the freshness that fills the room.


Hand sewing is so relaxing for me, I keep a tiny basket with a sewing project near my bed so I can simply reach over and pick up a project to run a few stiches before I turn off the lights to go to bed at night.

When I received this beautiful banner-like piece of crocheted edging in my DT package, I immediately knew I would be running my needle and thread through this fabulous piece. Since there were exactly four pennants, what better purpose for it than to share the L-O-V-E !

After I cut a floral pattern from a wide piece of lace I had in my own precious coffers, I backed the fragile piece to give it a bit more stability.I topped it using five different vintage and crocheted trims, including a delicate tatted edging that I cut from an old table runner. I added some beautiful heart-shaped buttons from Zeus and Zoe's at each end of the banner to anchor the many layers.


I chose another vintage lace to sew to the bottom edges of the crocheted banner as a frill, and used the same lace to edge three rosette-like pieces that I cut away from a tiny piece of trim as every little bit is so precious! I then added a mulburry flower to the centers and aligned the three rosettes in between the pennant wedges of the banner.


The finishing touch was hand-dying some appliqué pieces and arranging them to spell the word and spread the word.....LOVE !!!


I hope you will enjoy this piece as much as I have enoyed creating it :)
