Captured - Layout for 49 and Market

Hello my crafty friends! 

This is my forst post as a Design Team member of 49 and Market 
and I cannot tell you how happy and super excited I am!!! 
The products are amazing, sturdy and unique papers and the flowers, oh the flowers! 
I'm in love I tell you! 

This is my layout made with the "Flower Fairies of Spring" collection 


The paper has an amazing texture that I highlighted with gel medium mixed with mica powder through a stencil. After that, I sprayed my design with Prima Soft teal mist.

The butterfly is cut from the “From the root” paper. Isn’t its detail amazing? I also added stamping with the “Gabi’s label stamp set” to add dimension to the background.

I used the Burlap Ribbon in natural color as a mat for my photo bad I distressed the edges. I kept some of the burlap threads and created a little bow behind one of my flowers.
I have also used my favorite Dusty Attic chippies heat embossed with my beloved Lindy’s Stamp Gang powders.

All my flowers were misted with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold for extra shine. See how beautifully the Rustic Barn large bloom has taken the mist?
All the gold shines and the flower didn’t lose its shape! And for someone like me that overmists her flowers, I can tell you it’s a big deal!

I used copper microbeads to highlight my flowers even more. I used the “Lost Postcard” paper to die cut my leaves. I then painted them with Distress inks using lots and lots of water. The paper took it all without warping!
  These products are a pure delight to work with! Thank you so much 49 and Market!

Altered Vase - Moodboard inspiration for Dusty Attic

Hello my scrappy friends! 

Today I will show you my interpration of our June Dusty Attic moodboard.



Of course you can go beachy and romantic with our moodboard, but I chose another creative option. Our moodboard is full of bottles, so I thought I could actually alter one. It was loads of fun!


I glued my Dusty Attic chipboard pieces, Prima flowers and Finnabair art stones with gel medium, painted the entire vase and composition with gesso and then went to town coloring it with Finnabair metallic paints in emerald green and purple. At the end, I highlighted the petals and some raised parts with Dusty in Colour Fine Silver. That really gave my vase extra shine and glamour!




When my colors were completely dry, I covered certain areas with Dusty in Colour clear crackle varnish. I am a sucker for crakles. Everywhere!

Dreams - Layout for More than Words

Hello my friends! 

Happy 1st of June, the summer is officially starting, yeah! 

Plus we have a brand new and amazing challenge at More than Words!


Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
This challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.

Word Inspiration - IMAGINE
Creative Challenge - GET MESSY

Use the word IMAGINE as inspiration to create your project.
You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post how it inspired you, if not already obvious.

Our creative challenge this month is to GET MESSY. We want you to stretch your creativity! Mixed media techniques are so popular and you don't have to be a pro at them to have fun. All you need is a little imagination!  So, take out your paints, inks, mists, sprays, texture pastes and more to create a fabulous background or elements for your layout, canvas or art journal page. 
Getting messy is just part of the fun!

VERY IMPORTANT! You have to incorporate both requirements of the challenge, the word inspiration AND the creative challenge, on your project to be eligible to win. Just look at our DT members' creations as example. Also, remember that you must include our board image and a link to our blog in your entry post. 

This is my layout using Fabrica Decoru's papers, Prima flowers, Lindys Stamp Gang mists and Dusty Attic chipboard. 

In my dreams I can IMAGINE I am anyone I want, from a mighty warrior princess to Titania, queen of the faeries in A Midsummer Night's Dream. For the creative part of the challenge, I got MESSY by using white gesso and clear gesso as well as mists, inks, mica powders and modeling paste.

With this layout I am joining SkrapKlub Kiev's challenge with this majestic moodboard
