crafty adventures of a makeup loving Japanophile!



Tuesday, 27 October 2015


Hello friends!

It's been SUCH a long time but I'm so very excited to be here today because I, along with MANY of my friends am here to celebrate the darling, ridiculously talented, kick-ass KELLY LATEVOLA.

You may or may not know, that one year ago, Kelly started a new series on her blog called CASEing Genius. She takes three cards from someone crafty, and makes her own inspired project from them.

We all got together and thought it would be fun to do the same with Kelly's incredible work!

Here are the three cards I cased...

and here is my VERY poor take on her genius..

I went with bright colours, watercolour and big bold sentiments.

Kelly--you are seriously SUCH an inspiration to me and you've got literally NO idea how amazingly talented you are. I'm so excited to get to see what you create each week, and to be your friend.

Congrats on your milestone :) Here's to many many more!
