Our Time

Hi! 
I hope you all have had a lovely weekend so far. 

 So, today I have something very exciting to share with you.
Well, at least it´s exciting for me.

I´ve made an art journal page for my book.
I´ve start to make this book like a year ago, and this is just a second page I´ve made.
And  when I made this page, I thought why not I haven´t made this earlier, since I had so much fun. 


For this page I´ve used image and papers from 7 Dots, and few stickers too.
Since this is my first art journal book and only a second page, I don´t dare to use any of my family photo´s.. not just yet.

Isn´t it a beautiful vintage couple?!?
Perfect picture for this page.
And as you can see, I´ve played with my Silks. I think I love to use them more than my mists. 


Did you know how much I love to use laces?
And I ´m so happy that I finally found a project where I can use my Grandma´s old metal buttons.




Material list:
Papers: 7 Dots
Stamps & mask: Prima
Paints: Luminarte Silks
Embellishments: Tim Holtz, Maya Road, Wild Orchid Crafts
Own stash: gesso, modeling paste, buttons, laces, corrugated cardboard, paper clips

Okay, that´s all from me today.
Thank you for stopping by!

.... keep me thinking....

... that we almost had it all... 

Sound familiar?
It´s from Adele´s song "Rolling in the Deep"
I love Adele and her music!
 She has a beautiful strong voice and she sings straight to the heart.

Did you know there´s a challenge with a great theme at Mixed Media Place?
The theme is Summer Music vol2. - Adele.

And here´s my layout made for this challenge..
I was inspired by Adele herself on her video.
She sits there and sings from the bottom of her heart - so touching.

So I found this photo of me where I sit on our living room sofa, looking like I´m thinking something very serious stuff...

Some close ups...
There´s lots of layers on this layout. 
And as you can see I´ve made them more visible by adding some Silks - Black Ice.

Also there´s some stamping and circles made with black gesso.

And here you can see how I´ve mixed  Finnabair´s Modeling Paste - Opaque Matte together with Glass Glitter - Gold Rush.
Together they give nice effect.

So... I´ve received some feedback about giving you a material list what I am using on my creations...
Okay, no problem :)

Material list:
Papers: 7 Dots, Prima
Mask & stamps: Prima
Mists: Lindy´s Stamp Gang
Flowers: Prima, Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts
Embellishments: Prima, Tim Holtz
Black & white gesso: Rangers
Modeling paste & glass glitter: Prima

Thank you for looking!

You are beautiful

Hello everyone! 
It´s time for a new layout to share and I´m very excited about this one..
Why??? Because these colours are colours I hardly ever use.
But I like the result very much.
So challenging myself was worth it.

For this layout I used papers from Prima and also flowers and resins are from Prima.
Chipboard is from Wycinanka.
Stamps I used are from Kaisercraft, Glitz and American Crafts.
And I used my Silks. Oh, and mask is TCW :)

I found this great challenge called Off the Rails Scrapbooking and they have an exciting sketch and mood board to follow.

 
Few close ups...




Thank you for stopping by!
Happy monday!
xoxo
