New layout 'Wonder-Count your blessings'

Here is my new layout, based on the colors from the moodboard from Words & Paintery Challenge september 2015 and the title is inspired by Mixed media place Creative gym exercise #12 to use a saying or proverb to inspire your creation.
I was inspired to use the saying 'Count your blessings' and this picture says it all for me. The little moments every day, when my little girl is laughing, or when we cuddle, or spending time together, going outdoors, enjoying the moment...That is what 'Count your blessings' mean to me....
I would like to enter my mixed media layout for both challenges.
Here is the gorgeous color moodboard from Words & Paintery

Layout 'Adore' for Dusty Attic and 7 Dots Studio Challenge

Here is my new layout, based on the beautiful moodboard from Dusty Attic - Challenge September 2015 and inspired by the theme 'Frame it' from the 7 Dots Studio - Challenge sep-oct 2015 
I would like to enter my layout for both challenges.
I was inspired to use all the colors from the moodboard from Dusty Attic:
I used ATC frame #3 (which is my frame for the theme 'Frame it') and Mini words #1. I used the beautiful new Ornate pendants #3 also, they are so elegant!
My paper choice was 7 Dots Studio Thoughts Keeper no 6 and Yuletide Mistletoo. I also used Yuletide Elements 6 x 12 die cuts, tags 12 x 12, Verano Azul word stickers, Lost & Found Mask Wonky halftone  and UmWow mask Handwriting. I used the frame from Dusty attic to frame my picture, and I used the whole paper as a frame. I edged the sides with a paper distress tool and stamped with clear stamp 'messy' so I got a 12 x 12 frame for the whole page.

Workshop Finnabair: Layout 'Wonderful'

Today I had the best day! I met Anna Dabrowska - Finnabair
She is such a beautiful person, and I really enjoyed talking to her!
I followed a workshop, given by her in the Netherlands. I learned a lot, new ideas and new techniques!
We made this beautiful mixed media scrapbook page with Finnabair products, Prima metal embellishments and papers, and beautiful shimmering sprays from Color Arte.
I added a little bit from myself in there too (butterflies, title, word-stickers, die cuts, flowers and some splatters with black and white ink)
Here are some close ups:

Thanks for visiting!

12 x 12 canvas 'Hello Lovely' for Scrap around the World - September challenge

The moodboard from Scrap around the world - Challenge September 2015 is simply gorgeous. I immediately got inspiration, loving the beautiful soft pink and brown colors. I love old books, and their color made me think of walnut ink...Lydie Denis you've created such a beautiful moodboard!
My canvas is 12 x 12 inch, and I was inspired to use the color palette from the moodboard: white, soft brown, dark brown and a touch of pink (from the rose)
I was also inspired to use the picture from the rose, to make a rose-patterned background.
The background is made with gesso, crackle texture paste, Lindy's moon shadow mist (walnut ink) and starburst color spray, glass glitter, glass beads, sequins and some crystals.
I used the Bigshot to make a die cut title and leaves. I embossed them both with distress embossing powder, to give it a weather-worn look. The frame is a resin frame from Prima marketing.
Here are some close up pictures:
