For the love of lace tag by Yvonne Yam

Hello there! It's Yvonne here to share my lace tag. :)

I coloured the base of my tag (Ranger grungeboard) with Faber Castell gelatos in a shimmering gold. Then I adhered lace over it. The embroidered blooms were cut from another piece of lace trim and added to create more texture and interest.

I added some text paper behind the gorgeous charm and applied glossy accents. A string of pearls completed the vintage tag. :)

For your dose of vintage goodies, please visit the Zeus and Zoe etsy store, you are bound to find something delightful to craft with! :)

Love Plaque with Dana

Thanks so  much for stopping by today! Dana here with my last project as part of the Zeus and Zoe Design Team. It's been great being a part of this team and I hope I have inspired you with my projects!

I created this plaque with one of Marivic's stunning Berry71Bleu Handmade Tags and supplies from my Zeus and Zoe Kit. I love the colors on this tag and the gold accents. Using the tag as my inspiration, I added a brightly colored patterned paper to a piece of cardboard. I used molding paste, a DecoArt Jacobean Floral Stencil and Glamour Dust Glitter Paint to add a floral design to my base.

This quote sticker is part of the 7 Dots Studio Hopefully collection and fit perfectly with the love theme of my piece. I tied a piece of May Arts ribbon around the plaque and highlighted the edges with some acrylic glaze as a finishing touch.

You can find more of my work at Berry71Bleu and my personal blog, They Call Me Tatar Salad.

Illustrated Stories & Sketches - Art Journal Page

Hi Everyone, Norma here with you today!!   This is my last post as an official Zeus and Zoe team member so I'd like to take a moment to thank Marivic for the giving me this wonderful opportunity to share my creations with all of you.  I have truly enjoyed working with this amazing team of talented ladies and all of these fabulous Zeus and Zoe products!!   A huge THANK YOU to all of you Zeus and Zoe fans too!!!!!

I really wanted to share a fun project in my favorite mixed media style so I created this colorful art journal page.

My background was already started with left over sprays and stencils so all I had to do was pick a focal image.  I chose to use this beautiful vintage lady from my Zeus and Zoe kit.  I colored her in using Prismacolor pencils, distress inks and markers, Liquitex soft body acrylic paint and a Faber-Castell brush pen.  I simply fussy cut her out of the paper and glued her onto my colorful world ;D

I added swirls with Golden Molding Paste and a DecoArt stencil.  Then doodled around the top and bottom of the page.  I added pops of color with Golden Fluid acrylic paints.  The fluid acrylic adds tons of color while allowing the colors underneath show through.

I added bits of vintage news papers from my Zeus and Zoe kit to create my title and for scallops along the inseam of the page.

I doodled flowers here and there to add some yellow as an accent color.  I wrote "Dare to dream in bold bright colors" along the top.  I imagine that this is the way my vintage lady sees the world.  I have to say, I'm so loving this art journal page!!  It makes me so happy with all of the bright colors and doodles, it's how I see my world, lol.  

Well friends, thank you so much for visiting with me today!!  I hope my art journaling makes you smile too, HAVE A BEAUTIFUL/COLORFUL DAY FULL OF INSPIRATIONS!!!

Gift Box

Hi Everyone

Welcome to a new month!  Isn't this year just flying and the months passing in a flash! July already, before we can blink we need to be making Christmas cards! ;-)

Denise here to share a gift box with you today. It was a little box that I altered and one which I hope to use shortly.

I covered my box with beautiful papers from my Zeus and Zoe Kit, and then added a punched trim around the lid. I added some gorgeous May Arts Trim around the middle, and then went to work on the lid itself. I first painted a Design Worx chipboard and stuck that down, and then added all the little goodies on top. 

I always think that a gift is really so very special, when you can give it in a special packaging, and really made it look awesome.

Please check out the Zeus and Zoe Etsy shop for these wonderful goodies.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and having a look.
Have a super day!
