Happy Birthday to you!!!!

Quick Tutorial:

Quick sketch or not depending on our personality..

I gathered things I already had in the house, no shopping here, what's this stash of stored bits and bobs for anyway? It is a beautiful day and I really wanted to use red. Strong, simple colours, red, black, white! I found some beautiful textured red paper left over from another project, just waiting to be used!

Glue the red card stock to a piece of delicious, textured, white, handmade paper i have been keeping for something special..

As the card stock is deep red and already embossed, I simply grabbed some favorite stamps and stamped the red with gold. Be sure to layer the stamps over both the red and the white papers for effect. Stars, I love stars, magic, celebration!

I like black with red and gold so looked for black and white patterned paper that appealed - these wonderful prints are simply torn from magazines - one was an ironing board cover photo and as the shape lent itself to a dress or body I moved towards making people. As usual it couldn't just be any people, I always veer toward fairies, angels, icons, kitch. For a Pink Dreamer party, well it had to be witches or fairies! And all fairies need crowns; more magazine paper black and whites - part of a models skirt becomes a crown simply because the print works!

Bodies need faces, I sketched one, then two; two faces fine lined and water coloured..

Wings from white with sheet music snippets glued on..

Embellish with feathers and bindis and stickers with glitter!

Hmmm, looks like a scroll now - what shall I use top and bottom of my scroll, the faces that came to me were of Asian decent, so chop sticks - I have a lovely collection in the kitchen, we can spare two!

Stamp some bright red ribbon with the word celebrate as that is what we are doing and embellish embroidery floss with glass beads and charms and attach them on each side..

Add some bells for balance and to add to the senses!

Ta da! A wonderful birthday card with you all in mind!

Lets take take the day
and celebrate you!
