New challenge at 7 Dots Studio

Hi everybody!

There is a new challenge up and running on the blog from 7 Dots Studio.
It's theme is sunrise-sunset. Will you join us this month?

When I heard about the theme from this challenge, I immediately knew I wanted to use this picture.

This picture is from the first sunset at Lake Garda (Lago Di Garda) in Italy, when we arrived there this summer. I have never been to Italy, until this summer, and I absolutely love the country already.

Lake Garda is gorgeous and you get to see the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises (although I never saw those because I was a sleep). I took many pictures of the sunset that vacation, and I love to have those warm and happy memories every time I see them again…

Thank you for watching!

Love, Sanderijn

Mixed media layout 'Star'

Hi everybody!

I created a mixed media layout for you. 
It's been a while but I had so much fun, using sunny colors and a some elements of fall.

I started with clear gesso on the paper, to give the paper more strenght to hold the inks and other mixed media supplies.
Next I added the star stencil pattern with light paste mixed with iridiscent gold mica powder.

When all was dry, some stamping with Hazy Days grungy clear stamps, my all time favorite text clear stamp from the Homegrown collection and a butterfly stamp.

Next I started building my page with cheese cloth, tags, die cut elements, flowers, chipboard, flairs and word stickers.

I added yellow embossing powder on all the pieces of the chipboard.
Some splattering with yellow and black inks, and my page was finished

I also used some lovely flairs from Accent Scrapbooking
