Nikki from Disorganized Crafter created a Draughts board

Dear Reader

This is Nikki's creation using the moulds from Lady Vagabond to make the board suspended in the air!  She cut and turned the "crows nest" on its head for two of the airships, so that you can see which side of the board is which.

I love how she used the propellers as the game pieces.  Now I want to reach into the screen and move a piece!

Tamar Perry's Key holder


 Dear Reader

This is Tamar's Design Team artwork that doubles up as a key ring holder!  Here is her explanation!

This Mixed Media project is inspired by my current state of mind of looking for a new home.


It is a very difficult process, and I am feeling a bit jealous that Lady Vagabond has a flying house which she could take anywhere with her.


My new home will hopefully be one for a long long time, and nothing signifies a home better than a key.



 Once you have entered your home and hung up your key you can relax and be at ease.

I used the small white flowers A3 rice paper, the keys and keyhole molds, sand paste, modeling paste to create a tree bark like texture, vintage paste, pasta sculptura and soft clay to make the leaves, allegro paints, extra forte glue, cerantica gold, paper sheet for the flowers and the beads. And of course – allegro paints, and a stencil.

I used a piece of wood as the substrate for This Mixed Media art.  Note the little dangle! I love dangles !!

Anne Redfern's February DT post with a Music Box

 

Dear Reader

To learn more details from Anne herself... hop on over to her blog here!

I think she is so clever to create dimension on the back of the Lady Vagabond mould so that she can be viewd in the round!  Genius... quite Genius!


I love how she painted Lady Vagabond too.
Now I am going to be on the lookout for a music box with a dome too.  This is a great thing to make over!



Sneaky little Supervisor cat sitting at the back.  He is like "Where's Wally"  he turns up everywhere!

Shamela's Mini alum to fit inside her Travel Trunk

Dear Reader

I have no idea why this did not post on Thursday last week when it was Shamela's turn to shine on the Lady Vagabond Design team...

Here is her amazing mini album that she created to fit inside the Travel Trunk that was previously featured here.
The cover is fll of interesting textures and layers where she used the Grey board laser cut word on the spine and Escape The Ordinary stencil on the back cover as well as cutting and layering the House paper to create dimension by raising the houses up on foam tape.

Here you can see how it fits the space perfectly.
Below you can see a glimpse into the pages inside.




To see a walk through of her album you can go to her YouTube Channel here!

Diysil Art is the Design team member posting for today

 

Dear reader

Today it is Silvia's turn to inspire you with this gorgeous travel journal cover that houses two books inside.

I love the layers that were created with these cut outs from the back of the paper pad.  To keep the Lady Vagabond separated from the background, she carefully cut her out with a white boarder.


The two books are held together with cute little clips
