Embrace your inner child...

 
Hi everybody,
 
I have to say, those new collections from 7 Dots Studio, they are heavenly gorgeous... You have to check them out, if you didn't already...?
 
And deciding which paper to pick first, that was difficult! But I let myself be inspired by the new May moodboard from Berry71bleu, and I had this picture of my daughter, running from the hill, between the flowers, and it matched so perfectly with the paper from Hazy Days, I made this happy layout.
 
 
I used the birds on a wire stencil first, with white gesso. When it was dry I took a blend of yellow mica, acrylic paint and light paste to add the chevron stencil pattern.
Then I stamped the grungy clear stamp from Hazy Days with black gesso just randomly over it.
Love this textured, grungy background, it gives so much oppertunity to get messy!
 
I build up my page with lace, cheese clothe, tags and die cuts elements.
I finished with adding words stickers, flowers, pearls, glass beads, the title flair and turquoise ink splatters.

Mixed media canvas 'Lovely'

 
Hi everybody,
 
I was asked to be guest designer at Mixed Media & Art this month, and I created a mixed media canvas, based on the moodboard, with lovely products from The Dusty Attic, Lindy's Stamp Gang, Accent Scrapbooking and Prima Marketing/Finnabair.
 
 
This canvas was a gift for my aunt.
She lives next door, and her appletree has such gorgeous blossoms.
Some of the branches hang halfway in my garden, and I took some pictures of them two weeks ago.
The pictures inspired me to make this canvas.
 
 
First I used white gesso with the gorgeous new rose stencil from Dusty Attic on the canvas.
I painted my chipboard pieces with white gesso too.
Next I builded up my canvas with lace, chipboard, art stones and metal flowers.

 
I covered the whole canvas with clear gesso.
When it was dry I added Lindy's Rusty Lantern Lime and Cotton Candy Pink sprays with a brush, and added water with a spray bottle to let the ink spread over the canvas. I dried with the heattool.

 
Next I added a layer of white gesso, only dabbering it with a distress ink tool, not covering the whole canvas. I added some Dusty in Colour Pesto and Pink too here and there.

 
I started adding more lace, wire, flowers, the pictures and some flairs.
As a last step I glued down my title and some rhinestones.

Spring is in the air...

 
Hi everybody!
 
Brand new challenges are up and running on the blogs from Lindy's Stamp Gang and More Than Words. I decided to combine the two of them, because they complement each other beautifully.
I absolutely LOVE this color combination, I wanted to use all the colors, so my layout is full of Lindy's Sprays, embossing powder and magical powder.
 
 
 
I was inspired by the word MOTHER to use this brand new, gorgeous picture of my daugther, because I can not describe how proud I am of her and how she manages to make my heart jump up and down from joy from time to time...For the creative challenge I don't need any explanation right? Let's make your project bloom! Well that's exactly what I did! I took this picture last week, in springtime, so that's why I decided to use that 'theme' in combination with the flowers... my daughter makes my life bloom in any way!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have made a video tutorial for you to see how I created this page:
