Table sign

I´m so looking forward for the upcoming weekend!
I´m going to scrap event which lasts the whole weekend. Can you imagine!- whole weekend just playing with scrap goodies!!! WOW!

I love these kind of events, spending time with friends who shares the same love for crafting, meeting new faces behind the blogs, shopping (naturally) and crafting and laughing!

I thought  to share my table sign I made for the event. Actually there was a little challenge how to make yourself a table sign, but I notice a few minutes ago, that it was already closed. So I´m a bit late with my table sign, but I don´t mind. I´ll show it to you anyway.

I made a mixed media based table sign from the mini printer trey by Tando Creative. 
I used lots of different textures like paints, stamping, inking, gesso and some patterned papers.

Here´s some close ups...

I hope you liked what you saw.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you come back again!

Two layouts with C´est Magnifique May kit.

Today I want to share few layouts made with the gorgeous May kit from C´est Magnifique and Pion Design papers. 

Here´s my first layout, very girly one. I used lots of flowers, embellishments and Stampendous embossing enamel, which is shabby pink - so perfect.
For this layout I have used the main kit, the embellishment add-on, the flower add-on and the MMM kit.
From my stash: gesso, twine, punch

Few close ups..

My second layout with torn papers and layers. I like these colours very much, although yellow isn´t my favourite colours, but in this layout, it looks great.
For this layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on, the embellishment add-on and the MMM kit.
From my stash: gesso, mist, doily die, paper doily

And few close ups...

Thank you for visiting here today!

Shabby Sarah Kay + a new video!

Happy Easter everyone!!! 
Although it´s Easter, I haven´t got any Easter project to share with you, sorry. 
What I have for you, is a new card and a new colouring video!

I´m so speechless and happy about all the lovely comments regarding my first colouring video - thank you all!
I´ve received many emails, messages and comments and I appreciate each one of them. 
All the wonderful feedback made ​​me so happy, that I decided to make a new video.

 But before the video, I show you my new card...
I made a shabby themed card ( surprise... me.. shabby..)
I used one of my favourite Sarah Kay stamp from Stampavie. 
Papers are from Maja Design.
Here you can see the image a bit closer. 
Some of you asked what colours I use, so I´m going to list those colours in here:

Background: weathered wood, black soot, walnut stain
Ground: vintage photo, walnut stain, black soot
Skin: tattered rose, vintage photo, walnut stain
Cheeks: aged mahogny, tattered rose
Hat, sweater: black soot, vintage photo, weathered wood
Vest: weathered wood, black soot
Pants: stormy sky, black soot, walnut stain
Key: black soot, walnut stain

When I colour, I never use any pure colours. I like to mix colours, so I colour the same spot many times with different colours. I just love the different shades of colours, makes it more alive looking.
I´ve added some snow- tex around the image and all over the card to give the shabby effect.

And here is the new video!
I hope you like it!


Thank you for visiting here!
Wishing you all a lovely day!

A birthday card with Sarah Kay image

Good morning folks, 
and sweet sunday to you all!

Today I want to show you a card I made for friend of mine.
Actually she´s giving this card to her daughter on her birthday.

 When I started to make this card, I had an idea for recreating one of my older card. 
It´s so fun to see how your style has changed over the last couple of years.

Papers are from Maja Design and I have coloured the image with my di´s.

And here you can see my older card and the year is 2008. 
If I´m correct, papers are from Basic Grey and I have coloured the image with oil pastels. 
Now I challenge you to recreate something, that you can see how your style has changed.
Have fun!

Thank you for stopping by!
