More beautiful bday Gifts!!



Is this stunning or is this stunning! Just blows me away the talent of Sulea Lee!! This girl is not only talented, but she is also EXTREMELY generous with her art, her skills and her know how!! WOW, it is no wonder Sulea's art pops up everywhere you look, as it just needs to be shared with so many.

I have been blessed, with not one, but two gifts from Sulea, here's the other -





This is the front of the arch book.





This is the middle of the book




and lastly the back page.

I was admiring this book on Sulea's blog and wow how lucky to get it as my bday pressie!!

Sulea has put this book together using a chipboard frame coated in texture paste. Once that's left to dry, she has used a verdigris and rust base to give it the green and brown look. Sorry Sulea, but I'm going to have to try this one out!! I've never thought of aging the texture paste like that before. She's then added these beautiful collage elements to compliment the colours.

The painting at the top Sulea, I'd love to know more detail on the colours you used for the background and I would love in my wildest dreams to be able to hand paint like you do. I have always been greatful for stamps, because there's not one part of me that can hand draw anything other than stick images!!LOL Also the way you highlight parts of images to give it depth, just completely blows me away.

Thanks so much again my friend!!

Big hugs to you
Natxx
