Scrap Around The World - February Challenge

Hi everyone, 
it´s time for a new mood board and a new challenge at Scrap Around the World.
Here you can see the beautiful mood board:


I like the colors and summery feeling.
Makes me miss the summer in the middle of the winter here in north.

.
 This month is hosted by the Design Team member Tatyana Sidorenko from Belarus. 
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.


I was inspired by the picture from the wharf
 and I knew instantly what photo I´m gonna use on my layout.

 I have used papers from 7Dots and embellishments from Prima.

Värityksiä... + video!

Heippa ystäväiset, 
ja oikein mukavaa viikonlopun alkua kaikille! 

Uskomaton määrä tullut tämän viikon aikana tehtyä postauksia ja ennen kaikkea videoita!
 Hyvin on hyödynnetty sairaslomaa ja puhumattomuutta... ;) 
Niin tosiaan, olen siis ollut kipeänä tämän viikkoa, kurkunpääntuledus, kuumeilua, päänsärkyä ja ääni kadoksissa. Ja nyt vihdoin kun muut oireet alkavat helpottamaan, niin hirveä räkätauti, eli nenää saa olla niistämässä aika ajoin... mukavaa... 


Facebookin askartelukirppikseltä
 löysin tämän ihanaisen muffinssileimasimen ja voi onnellista - nyt se on minun :)

Tottahan sitä piti päästä värittelemään ja samalla tein videon.
Jälleen kerran olen kuvat väritellyt Distress Inkeillä, ne on vaan mun juttu väritellä :)

Ja kun aiheeseen on päästy, niin samallla vastailen muutamiin kysymyksiin ja tiedusteluihin, joita olen saanut tässä lähiaikoina..
Kiitos vaan kaikille kivoista kommenteista, sekä palautteista :)
 Niistä ainakin tiedän, että jotkut ovat ihan oikeasti jaksaneet katsella ja seurata touhuilemisiani ja se antaa minulle motivaatiota tehdä tätä lisää. 
Vaikka välillä tuntuu, ettei enää jaksa oikein kiinnostaa ja inspiraatiokin on hävinnyt teille tietämättömille...

1. Minulta pyydettiin tekemään videoita muistakin värittelyistä, kuin Distress Inkeillä.
Valitettavasti joudun sanomaan tähän ei, en väritä muilla kuin distress musteilla.
Olen kokeillut monemoisia esim. akvarellikynät, promarkerit, distress markerit, öljypastelliliidut, copicit, vesivärit - ne eivät olleet mua varten.
Ja en koe olevani mikään erilaisten väritystekniikoiden opettaja, vaan olen tehnyt väritysvideoita nimenomaan omasta tyylistäni ja tavastani värittää.
 Se ei tietenkään ole ainoa oikea tyyli, mutta se on mun tyyli :)


2. Värityskursseja kaivattiin..
Ei mikään mahdoton ajatus, kun vaan sopiva paikka löytyy sekä tarpeeksi innokkaita värittelijöitä.
Yhden kerran olen pitänyt ns.värittelypäivän kodissamme, mutta tuntui aivan liian vieraalta ja oudolta avata oman kodin ovi ventovieraille ihmisille.
Oma koti on mielestäni liian henkilökohtainen paikka, siksi en enää järjestä vastaavia juttuja.
Mutta tulipa kokeiltua ja olihan meillä ihan kiva päivä :)


3. Miten olen oppinut värittelemään...?
Esitän vastakysymyksen: Osaanko värittää? :)
Joidenkin mielestä osaan, joidenkin en - nämä ovat niitä makuasioita. Toiset tykkäävät yksinkertaisemmasta ja siistimmästä tyylistä.
 Minä taas pidän ylireunojen menevästä, käyttäen paljon eri värejä = sekasotkusta.
Tyylejä ja makua on monia, ei kuitenkaan tuomita niistä ketään, vaan pidetään sitä rikkautena :)

Mutta miten olen oppinut värittelemään...
Yksi sana: harjoittelemalla. 
Tätä olen vissiin sanonut ennenkin - niin se vaan on :)
Ja kokeilemalla - rohkeasti.
Katselemalla muita, hakemalla inspiraatiota, soveltamalla muilta opittuja juttuja omaan, siitä se lähtee.

Oma esikuvani värittämiseen on Kerttulinpajan Aija.
En tiedä muistaako monikaan Aijaa enään, mutta mielestäni Aijalle kuuluu kaikki kiitos ja kunnia Distress Inkeillä värittämisen ilosta ja sen tuomisesta tänne Suomen kamaralle :)


Ja tässä se video..



 Kiitos vierailustasi ja oikein mukavaa viikonloppua kaikille!
Koittakaa pysyä terveinä! :)

LOVE mixed media canvas - inspired by Finnabair + video!

 Hi!
Today I have a canvas to share with you.
I made a mixed medis based canvas, inspired by Finnabairs magnificent style.
Plus, I have made a start to finish video about making this canvas.


Theme for this canvas is LOVE...
So I made a big heart which is captured by a net, 
so no one can´t steal it from me now :)

I love these colours and used mists by Lindy´s Stamp Gang.





And here´s the video...


I hope you liked my video and my canvas :)

Welcome Each New Day - Prima PPP + video!!

Hi,
I hope you all ahve had a lovely week so far!
I myself, can´t praise about my week starting so well. I`ve been a bit sick past few days,
suffering from flu and sore throat.
But I´m hoping to feeling better in a day or two :)

Today I have a  new card to share with you,
plus I have a small video tutorial about creating the card.

I made this card by following the beautiful  January´s Prima Product Pick palette.


I have used the beautiful papers from Epiphany collection, I just love that collection!
Also I have used few stamps, gorgeous flowers and some self adhesive jewels by Prima.
And the gorgeous shabby resin clock - I love these resin pieces!

Here you can see the colour palette..
And some close ups...






Oh, this photo is hilarious..
Can you see the small skull?
I had a great laugh when I saw that skull!! So funny!
Now this is something we can say talent, right? ;)

And here's the video I mentioned earlier..



I hope you liked my video and my card :)
Thank you for stopping by!

Us - Mini Canvas

 Hi!
Today I have a mini canvas to share with you. 
Actually, when I saw Finnabairs awesome Sparkle & Shine blog hop challenge, I knew I must join that fun.

So here we go...


I have used  the beautiful Boudoir paper from Blue Fern Studios  - Blue Fern Garden collection.
Also the chipboard is from BFS, called Shabby Brick Bits.
And naturally I have used lots of great products by Finnabair, like stamp, embellishments, gesso and glass glitter.
Also I have used mists by Lindy´s Stamp Gang and silks by Luminarte.








Thank you for looking1
