The images from this week are from the book Yourself and Your House Wonderful from 1913 by H.A. Guerber.
This week I have the pleasure to share with you the amazing of another international paper artist Pia. I love the bright colors she used to color in these images and all the beautiful vintage touches she has added to her work. Her is her bio in her own words. " My name is Pia Lehtinen and I am 53 years old. I live in beautiful Lapland in northern Sweden. I have been making cards since 2006 and I really love it. I have had a lot of hobbies before, like sewing my own clothes and making jewelry, but I don't have any time for it now, since I just make cards nowadays. I just can't help it. My blog: http://pia-design.blogspot.com
Description of my cards: I printed the images with my laser printer and coloured them with distresser inks and Tombow brush pens.
On the card with the girl and the baby I used paper from Webster's Pages (love them all) and decorated with a satin bow, a moon charm and some pearly swirls.
On the second card I used some flowery paper which I got from a friend, I then decorated with some mulberry roses which I have made myself, and a beautiful handmade lace and some velvet ribbon. I also put some pearls in the corners. The ticket says in translation: My best friend."
thanks, the putting baby to bed is adorable!ReplyDelete
they're so sweet! thanks Cora!ReplyDelete
Oh, lovely- both the stamps and the cards!ReplyDelete
The arms tend to be a bit short though, especially on the boy. Really nicely done, but if you are going to make these as real stamps, you should think about the arms. They are so perfect and truly beautiful, just a bit longer arms :-)
