Hello MLS fans. Today I want to share some projects using Secret Garden collection. Flowers and butterflies are 2 of my favourites. So I really enjoy working with this collection.
"Secret Garden" Card
I cut a "window" with Spellbinders die and create a frame with MLS paper. I cut the flowers and layered and folded them to create a dimensional look. I added butterflies and also glossy accents to the flower centres.
Here's the closeup of the flowers.
"Love Comes Knocking" Card
Supplies: White Cardstock (Bazzill); MLS (Dorothy, Bonbons, La Petite, Mini Alpha Stickers Chocolate Cake, 3D Roll Up Flower and Accents, Cardstock Sticker, Keepsake Cardstock Sticker); Chipboard Door (Dusty Attic); Doily Die (Cheerylynn); Pins, ribbon flowers, tag (Maya Road); Folkart Extreme Glitter Paint; Corrugated Board; Swarovski Crsytals; Foam Strip (Scrapbook Adhesives)
For this card, I used Dusty Attic chipboard door as the main focus and added MLS papers and stickers. I painted the chipboard door with Folkart Extreme Glitter paint and layered the diecut doily and Maya Road tag. Then I cut out the words, LOVE from MLS paper and adhered to top of tag. I wanted to create a look of wreath handing on the door.
For the inside of the card, I mat the paper with corrugated board and added the journalling tag in the center for space for greetings.

For the last project, I used Punky Sprouts album, Tutu Punk Album. This album is dedicated to my favourite icons, images that I love and used often. I used quite a lot of mixed media mediums and techniques for this album. Here you can also see my favourite color combinations!! Love this album!!
This is a list of my favourite icons/images.
This page is dedicated to butterflies. I used the doily from Punky Sprouts to fold into half and twist tie it into a butterfly and I added MLS butterfly sticker as the 2nd layer. Here you can see that I added beads to the plain fabric leaves (Maya Road).
Christmas trees are also a favourite. I love trees and I love Christmas. I folded the cupcake liners from Punky Sprouts and painted them green, add a pin at the top and some pearls on the trees. I combined both Maya Road and MLS banners at the top.
Aren't Russian Dolls cute!!! The ones at the right are digital designs and the one at the left is drawn and painted with acrylic paints.
Dressforms and sewing theme are my all time favourites!!! I used MLS Sew Cute collection for these pages.
She Art Dolls seems like the "must-have" mixed media icon!! Both stamps are from Unity Stamp Co. I stamped twice on 2 different MLS papers for one doll. The patterns on MLS papers gave a pretty touch to the dress.
Poppies!! I used Unity/Donna Downey stamps for the open poppies. The rest are made by painting over the cupcake liners from Punky Sprouts. I added black beads as the poppies centres. This is my most favourite page as it speaks personally to me. Each stem represent something about my life and what I want to achieve and do.
The last pages on owls are done by layering circles and sketching them into owls. I drawn and painted the brunches too. Meant to do more journalling on this page but decided to just leave it plain.
I hope you enjoy my projects. Thanks for stopping by.
