New and Improved Moon Maidens with Tutorial

While I loved my first batch of moon maidens I knew they could be improved. So I set to work on those lovelies and colourized them, gave them blushed rosy cheeks and some extra golden splatter.

I think they are much improved!

I am all sorts of in love with the gold and blue combination. 

And I've always been a fan of stringing sweet words together. When they fit together it's like getting encouragement from the universe.

If you'd like to make your own Moon Maiden ATC's here is the list of supplies you'll want to consider: (if you don't have something experiment, make do, or try something unexpected!)

- card or board for the base
- old paper for the background (I think old paper absorbs pigment better)
- black, blue and white acrylic paint
- floral stamp
- stamp pad
- gold embossing powder
- heat gun
- gold paint or ink
- scrapbook paper (for back)
- glue

If you don't want to source your own vintage images, I have a collage sheet of the ladies, birds and words I used HERE

To help you make your lovely moon ladies, I created a video walk through over here on my YouTube channel

Oh to delight in beautiful nights and under full moons! To send messages on the wings of songbirds!

Here's to making new and improved glorious messes, my lovely friends.

P.S. I almost forgot! All ATCs in the etsy shop are 30% off when you use the code ATC30 at checkout.
