DT showcase: Gio

Ciao :-)

Yup, it's Gio day today and I know that you all love her work and the way she manages to upcycle everything she puts her hands on. 
So I'm not surprised that she picked the sample below as her favourite one she has made for us this year. 
She said: "It represents perfectly my "creative" me.
It's pink, it's an upcycling project (it was an empty shower gel bottle), it involves my favourite techniques and products, like embossing, distress inks and glass beads, along with same metal and ribbon." 

As for her favourite product this year, Gio said: 
My fave product of the year could be Dylusion Inks, for their vibrant colours an mixability, the Tando clocks, handy, alterable pieces for a gift or home decor, the quality and versatility of the glass beads (not only for jewels) but if I have to choose one, maybe a product that can add a stunning finish to all my pieces, especially texturized ones, are Dreamweaver metallic F/X.

Here's a few more samples from Gio that I picked... (REALLY difficult to choose as I am  HUGE fan of her work)... which one was your favourite? 
If you like Gio's work, now is the time to tell her in a comment below ;)

(I had to pick this card as she sent it to me and it's even more beautiful IRL ;))

See you tomorrow
