Layout "Blossom & Shine"

Hello Crafty Souls! Today I´m sharing this colorful layout created for the July Challenge at 7 Dots Studio. I love the sparks of color & the foliage in the moodboard!

I chose this colorful photo of a dark puple tulip from my garden for this project. I wish I could say that my garden still has it, but this summer has been marvellous in so many ways so far, sunny & hot. But NO rain - our garden is in a dreadful state, almost nothing is alive anymore... 

I used colorful flowers together with papers & embellishments from the Garden Party Collection.

Splatters & spritzes of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist make the black cardstock sparkle.


The word stickers from 7 Dots Studio always have a place on my projects!

A Day by the Sea Layout

Happy Thursday crative souls! We are in the middle of summer and what could be better and a Sea & Beach inspired layout? I have had these wonderful papers from the Canvas Corp collection Ship to Shore and the new challenge at More than Words gave me the reason to use them. The challenge is called Beach & Seachells, and well - you get it...

Where I live you can count the occasions when it is warm enough to actually go to the beach. Spending time by the sea on the other hand is something we do on a daily basis. I love this picture of my kids from two summers ago. We went to a old fishing shore and they ran around there exploring the surroundings. Lots of shells to pick, beautiful stones and old lighthouses to explore. The sea was cold that that so they did not dip their toes, but ran around the beach without shoes. Spreading the summer dirty toes in the sand...

Love the rubons from 7 Gypsies Architextures!

Cut out shells & a shellfish under cover ...

Love splatters of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Word stickers from 7 Dots Studio are great!

4.4 Art Journal for AB Studio Design Team

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I´m sharing my new work for Aga Baraniak.com & the AB Studio Design Team. If you not yet have discovered the brand I really recommend a visit to the store!

This art journal spread was crated with watercolors from Renesans, stencils from AB Studio & flowers from the new collection "Bohemian Romance" that Aga Baraniak designed for Canvas Corp Brands  (list of supplies below).

I used the drew the 4´s and the leaves with a gelly roller pen & then added the cut out and painted flowers. If you look close you can see that the leaves have a slightly golden tint from a pencil. 

The small circles was done using a stencil & a silver pencil.

Seize the Day Canvas Piece - Mixed Media & Art Design Team

Hi Crafty Souls!

I´m here today to inspire you with this canvas art piece I made for the June moodboard at Mixed Media & Art.

I belive the "Emotional Ourburst" moodboard has perfect colors for a summer project - bold, bright and sparkling. I love all the details & textures in it!

I ended up creating this piece about my friend and her daughter. My friend got married a two summers ago, and I was asked to be the wedding photographer. I caught this moment on camera - a really precious one - between the teenage daughter and her soon to be wed mother. This was before the wedding, and the air was swooning with emotions. The wedding was a secret to everyone (we thought we was about to celebrate my friend turning 40 yo), and the family was excited to been able to fool everyone. 

I love how the brand new paper collection designed by Aga Baraniak for Canvas Corp turned out as background. I painted the flowers with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (they work really well as watercolors since they are water based). You can find a list of products used at the end of this post.

I cut out a moth from a patterned paper and added it together with a sentiment from 7 Dots Studio. A piece of colored burlap (Canvas Corp) make the piece really pop!

I´m really excited to see your creations inspired by this challenge.

Thank you for stepping by today!

Tags "Freedom & Fly" - AB Studio Design Team

Hi everyone! Today I want to share my latest project for the AB Studio Design Team. Are you not yet familiar with their stencils & stamps you must check them out asap.

I used stencil no 4 & 6 to create the background of raised squares and the foliage. If you look close you can see that the golden background has different shading. That was creted when I pritzed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist "Gold" over stencil no 26

Different colors of Glimmer Mists add color that compliment the golden background. 

Above you can see how cool the leaves turned out after I painted them with Glimmer Glam.

Thank you for stepping by todaya!
