NEW Mini Scissors set

Starting with the super cute Mini Fob watch,
where I have ever so lightly added a coat of gesso...
Make sure not to take away any detail to the watch.

The papers I have used are Studio 73  - Once Upon An Ocean.
I am obsessed with this collection, would have to be one of my 
favorites collections from Studio 73 😍😍😍

Next up is the Aztec feather, that I have partly sitting 
underneath my photo. Again using some gesso,
 I have given this feather 2 coats.

Also given 2 coats of gesso to the Indian feathers, 
and finished them off by blending a little bit of teal ink 

Lastly! For my title 'Create' & the New Mini Scissor 
I have sitting next right next to it.
Going with the same process by adding 2 coats of gesso, 

then inking the 'Create' with brown &
 the Mini Scissor, inking it lightly with an apricot.
