Berry71Bleu February Guest Artist

Hello Everyone, today I am Guest Artist at a fabulous monthly challenge site called  "Berry71Bleu"
Thank you to the lovely Denise Van Deventer for Inviting me to join in this month. Each month a new Mood Board is published.

This month for February the Mood Board Challenge is a really
gorgeous mood board. Take a look…..

But firstly a little about myself,

My name is Adriana Bolzon,
I have been a devoted Scrapbooker, card and paper crafter for over 15 years.  You will always find me in my craft room creating, experimenting with different techniques and products, and hopefully inspired others to give it a go. It is a hobby and creative outlet, which I am totally passionate about. I believe that preserving memories are important, and scrapbooking is a great way to create lasting treasures to keep or to give as gifts.  My style is very classic with a distressed, shabby chic and vintage twist. Another passion of mine is creating altered art pieces, turning everyday items into works of art.  My work has been published in many Paper-crafting magazines around the world, and also featured on online scrapbooking forums.

I live in beautiful South Australia with my husband & daughter. I am very fortunate to have been on many paper crafting Design Teams including Kaisercraft, Couture Creations (Artdeco Creations) and many more.

You can find my creations and more inspiration here on my blog:

Here is my project for the challenge….

I took inspiration from the beautiful pinks, flowers and the small window frames of the old phone booth and created this framed Off the page project.

I covered the whole frame with white gesso and then
added some muslin cloth to soften around the edges. 
Using the new release papers and dies from 
Ultimate Crafts -
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations

using these collections "Enchanted Tea Party" collection of papers, dies & stamps
"L"Aquarelle" papers, stamps & dies

I cut the dies and covered some of the dies with embossing powders 

Using the stamp set from the
 Ultimate Crafts L'aquarelle stamp set ULT157796
for the flowers of the vase.

Love this dragonfly die Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Dragonfly Die set ULT157785 - I heat embossed the wings and body.

You have until 28 Feb to upload your project HERE

Thanks for looking, 

Cheers and big hugs
Adriana XXXX
