Xoxoxo (for Prima PPP and BAP October)

Here is my new layout, inspired by, and created for Prima Product Pick and Build-A-Page challenges for October
The PPP colors are just divine. Purple and gold are so elegant together.
I also loved the BAP sketch immediately, because it gave me the idea of using the lovely resist canvas I had in my stash for sometime now.
I decided to combine the challenges with eachother.

I used these elements from the sketch: the composition with stripes below and leaves. I used three pictures on top of eachother to use the 3 squares from the composition. And I placed the title on the place as shown in the sketch.
I started with cutting the resist canvas, then stamped it with a clear stamp and stazon, and wet them with water and a spray bottle. Then I used color bloom sprays with a brush to give the canvas color. Then spraying water again so the ink would spread. After drying I glued the canvas on the patterned paper.
Next step I used a stencil with light paste mixed with mica powder and glitter.
When light paste was dry, I started building my page with lovely flowers, doily dies, chipboard pieces, golden metal leaves and more. After finishing the page I splattered some white ink. Last but not least my ultime favorite: ultra fine glitter ( I call it fairy dust, because they intend to glitter through the air of my scraproom and it looks like fairy dust...)

Mixed media layout 'Angel' (with video tutorial)

I created this layout for the Finnabair creative team call 2016
I was so thrilled when the announcement was made, I really wanted to think this application through and come up with something special.
I hope you will enjoy my page.
As an extra I made a video too!
This page was very fun to do.
I used some different techniques this time, I loved the effect of texture powder mixed with black gesso, applied on the page with a stencil. I also painted the art pebbles with black gesso, never done that before, but the effect is very nice. I am sending my application for the creative team call tonight. I am so excited and oh yes, nervous too!

My inspiration for this color scheme came from Lindy's Stamp Gang Color challenge October 2016
Just love these colors together.
It was a challenge for me to create a page with these popping colors, that still expressed gentleness and delicateness.

Love (layout for 7 Dots Studio)

The beautiful blue papers from the Destination Unknown collection really are so vibrant of color.
 I wanted to create something that made the color even more popping, so I used fuchsia and green in combination with white to get this wonderful, colorful page. I loved using these colors I normally wouldn't pick together.

I used (ofcourse) a picture of my daughter, we were in the zoo that day and she actually is lying in a turtle shell here. So funny.
I love her so much, she is my inspiration to create these colorful pages.
I have created a video tutorial for you, to see how I made this page.
I hope you will enjoy it!

P.S. I love you

Sometimes less is more....
I have had this idea of creating a page with minimal supplies in my head for quite some time now, and I really wanted to give it a try, using 7 Dots Studio products, but without any paper from 7 Dots Studio. Boy that was hard for me! I always want to add more and more.
I started with a blank page watercolour paper. I first applied light paste mixed with mica powder silver and the beautiful 7 Dots Studio stencil 'dots'.
Next I added some water and some splatters dark color bloom spray, and more water, until I was happy with the result.
When this was dry I stamped Homegrown clear stamps with black gesso a little bit over the dots.
Then I took some wrinkled tissue paper and white gesso, dabbering this on my page for two or three layers, around my composition.
It gives a little bit of a cloudy effect.
I painted the little chipboard hearts black and sprayed some color bloom over it, and some white gesso. The white leaves are covered with ultra fine glitter.
To give it a little bit extra I added some black painted stars, inspired by the theme from Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo September challenge 'Stars' 
I have never finished a layout as quick as this one!

I would like to enter my layout for the

Altered birdcage

When we were on vacation I found this little birdcage in a flower shop, and I loved it. Once we were home I got some ideas to alter it. I was inspired by the moodboard from Dusty Attic Challenge August to work with these gorgeous colors. I love the earthy green and rusty effect. I would like to enter my project for this challenge.
The birdcage was turquoise when I bought it. I used so many paints, sprays, glitter and more paint to give it this aged look. I used Ornate pendants #3 and Hashtag Sayings chipboard pieces from Dusty Attic. I used the pendant to create the hanging part for the praying angel from Relics&Artifacts Archival (Milagros). I've made this project also for the challenge from the Relics&Artifacts Tribe on Facebook.
Many metal elements are from Scrap unlimited
I used some to tear apart and alter the little bird on top. Below are some close up pictures.

My all time favorite part: using Swarovski crystals and lots of ultra fine glitter and some holographic glitter dots. I used some painted leaves from the branch to create wings for the angel.

Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn

Just a whisper

There is a new challenge at 7 Dots Studio, it is called 'metallic colors or texture'.
I hope you'll join us!
Metallic colors are my favorite...I love everything shiny, shimmering and that's why I have so many gorgeous shimmering paints and inks. It was not hard at all to use the elements from this theme in my project!
I used gold as my metallic color and the circle shaped metal trinket behind my butterfly, has lots of texture, created with glass glitter, glass beads and rhinestones. 
The frame has also texture, because I painted it with golden and graphite acrylic paint, used some tissue paper, painted it again, and when this all was dry, I covered the whole frame with lace.

About my project: I wanted to create something different with the papers from 7 Dots Studio, than a layout, or card or tag.
I die cutted a doily out of a paper from the Homegrown collection ( paper 12 x 12 'Dreamy'). The doily is glued down on the back of  the frame (in the middle) and it has a see-through effect this way.
I stamped my butterflies on paper from Homegrown 6 x 6 paper pad. I used embossing powder on my darker butterfly, and my golden butterfly is stamped with acrylic paint.

Because I felt my angelic butterfly had turned out very mysterious, I was searching for a title that really fitted my project.
I found the title on a word sticker from the Lost and Found collection.... Just a whisper....Mysterious and magical...like my shimmering butterfly. She whispers soft when she flies nearby....

 And here is the inspirational circle, I hope you'll be inspired to play along this month!

Thank you for visiting!
