Petaloo's "Featured Artist" of the month...
Scroll down to enjoy three beautiful projects by DT member Lisa Valentine...
When I heard that we were going to be pairing up Darjeeling flowers with paper by Tim Holtz you could hear an audible "aaahhhhhh". Right up my alley! LOVE this stuff! I just happen to have some of Tim's Crowded Attic in my stash...go figure. ;)
Would ya look at those flowers! The color is off the hook; soft and shabby, deep and intense. Yum.
I used Darjeeling in Shabby Beige and Seaside. I managed to tuck in a few cattails from a Darjeeling Foliage package.
Yup, chipboard clouds from Petaloo!! I painted these in white, and then dry brushed some blue paint to give them dimension. I finished them off by sanding the edges a bit.
I decided to alter a spool from Art Parts using some of Tim's Lost and Found paper. I have used Petaloo chipboard keys and Darjeeling Dahlias in Shabby Beige and Frosted Roses in Seaside.
I love the way the dahlia and frosted rose give my project a decidedly feminine and old-timey feel. I added a Petaloo Hat Pin to finish it off.
I altered a few chipboard keys from Petaloo and added some jewels to give them a more "pirate-treasure" kind of feel. They look like they have a story to tell.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you've seen something that inspires you!!
