*Vera Lane Studio: La Belle Vie



Please let me extend a warm welcome to Fiona Whitehead from Crafty Stamping, my newest follower. I am so pleased you're coming along on my artsy journey!

Monday brings around my DT day for Vera Lane Studio and there is a new digi set in the shop today. It is La Belle Vie and features a lovely girl, with big, bold flower eyes, three different flower designs and two sentiments. I added the chubby bird from Coffee, Tea and Books.

My images were coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. The background was fist stamped with the Hugely Hexagonal stencil, then heat embossed in white using the Scripted Hexagon stamp. Some extra Distress Oxides were smooshed onto the background along with white paint splatters. I stamped along the edges using Reverse Hexagons and the number stamp from Janet's Background Noise stamp set. 
I tore some of Janets washi tapes and used themaall for grounding my images. Lastly a doodle border was added, along with the two sentiments.
All stamps, stencils and washi tape from AALL & Create.

La Belle Vie                                            Coffee, Tea and Books.

That's all for now.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
