You and Me = Delight

Hello everyone! Today I will show you a mixed media page that was inspired by the Pop and Colors 2 workshop and the gorgeous Prima February mood board. I used mint, coral and cinnamon mist as well as a finnabair stencil for my background. I wanted the page to have an "airy" feel to match the pastel colors so I filled it with butterflies coming alive from the stencil but I curled them up and only glued the center of them. The chipboard was gessoed and then painted with picket fence crackle paint. After that, it was stamped with a script stamp and dabbed randomly with chalk ink. This photo is of my oldest son and it was taken a year ago. Hidden journaling is on the back.

Joy & happiness – GD at WW1

Hello! Today I want to show you a layout I made as Guest Designer for White with 1. February’s color is the lush grape and I have lots of fun playing with it! The only color I used is Dylusions’ Crushed Grape. I misted my page with lots of Dylusions mist and plenty of water and used my Finnabair stencil. I applied crackle paste on some of the butterflies and heat embossed with white powder with a prima text stamp. I matted my photo on corrugated chipboard which I had painted with picket fence crackle paint. I did the same on my ID chipboard and on the words Joy & happiness. Most of the products you can find at the Scraps n Pieces online shop.

Mini me – SIG and C’est magnifique

Hello everyone! This is going to be the quickest post ever, I have a deadline to catch! :)

Scrapbookers in Greece January challenge was a sweet one, to scrap ourselves during our childhood and since we all got two days extra time I thought I should give it a shot. This page was supposed to be not filled with flowers (lol I swear I started that way) and it took me all day because in the mean time I fed two babies three times, changed endless nappies and even cleaned vomits. Oh my, it’s tough to be a mommy!

I also used C’est Magnifique’s February sketch as an inspiration. I used a past kit (sorry, no time to find which month) and I combined it with February’s mixed media kit. Oh I loved the pearlising modeling paste and the shimmerz!!! I apologize for the photo, it is already nighttime here…

This is pretty much a traditional scrapbooking page. I like this style, I am not into all the mixed media madness, I go as far as modeling paste and stenciling lol, and let me tell you sometimes it feels lonely. Occasionally I love experimenting (please check my next post for WW1) but this is my style and I intend to stay true and loyal to it. Lets see how the future goes…
