Perfect Moment

Long time no see!

Sorry it has been so quiet here.
So much has going on here lately, so I just haven´t got time to made anything.
First I´ve suffered a terrible flu and then my oldest son moved his own place, so it has been quite hectic here...
I´ve missed my crafting room so much and also I´ve missed all my stuff; paints, mists, glue on my hands etc...
But last weekend I manage to made something and it sure was fun :) 

There´s a fun challenge at 7 Dots blog with a theme 

I made a small vintage canvas using beautiful vintage image and papers from Cold Country collection by 7 Dots. 

Here you can see the Inspirational Circle by 7 Dots Dt´s.

And here´s a few close ups..

Material list:
Papers, image: 7 Dots
Mists, paints: Lindy´s Stamp Gang, Silks - Luminarte
Stamp: Prima
Mask: Prima
Chipboards: 7 Dots
Flowers, embellishments: Prima

Thank you for looking!

Scrap Around The World - October Challenge

it´s time for a new mood board and a new challenge at Scrap Around the World

Here you can see the gorgeous mood board!
I love those colours and elements - so fun to play with!

 This month is hosted by the Design Team member Rachael Funnell from Australia.

Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like, using one image, several of them, all of them or just one aspect of an image, using any colours!
And remember:
You need to follow 10 golden rules found here.
 Here´s my layout for this months challenge:

I was so inspired by the picture at the bottom right corner, where is the beautiful butterfly.
I just love butterflies and also I like the colours of the mood board butterfly.

This time I didn´t use any background papers.
I made my layout adding white gesso to the 12"x12" chipboard. 
 I added some crackle paint, mists, modeling paste with mask and also some stamping.

some close ups..
