Wow! This is the first one

Hello, if you are reading this... thank you. This is my first post and something that has given me much anxiety over the past couple months. I love being on IG but have never been a fan of keeping up with social media. But as a papercrafter, there are so many opportunities I am missing out on by not having a blog or being on Facebook. So here it is. No more excuses.
My first project I’d like to share is a mermaid scene I created using Honey Bee stamps. I watercolored the images using the smoosh technique with my ink pads and a water brush on cannon watercolor paper.

I used Lawn Fawn dies to create the background. The waves dies for the base and the new scalloped frames for the boarder.

I dusted off my Scan n Cut for this project and also fussy cut a few sections. I set the blade very deep at 7.5 to cut through the thick paper. I then used an xacto blade to carefully cut around her hands to place the gem.

I finished this up with some simple layering using foam tape and a sprinkling of Studio Katia Honey Gold sequins.
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope to see you back. Davina


  1. Honestly I don’t know what took you so long! Haha! Just kidding! I am so excited for you! Now you have a more broad venue to showcase your works of art and to explain how that beautiful mind of yours works!

  2. She’s beautiful! Congratulations on your blog!

  3. I am happy to have found your blog! Someone mentioned you in IG and I followed! We are new here to Vegas and was happy to see a crafter here! (I know. There are tons. If you've moved as much as we have you'll get that 'Yay!' feeling when you find little things) Love your cards! Have you been to Universal to see Hogwarts?
