Summer Fun, Or? - Scrap FX Design Team & more

I´m here today with my latest layout for the Scrap FX design team, it is also my entry for a couple of challenges (see below for links and how I was inspiered). A layout made with the Summer Fun Wordlet, the Blossom Stem & the Peacock Feather Stencil. The new chipboards from June had a travel theme, so you will find plenty there for documenting your summer.

I must say that I am totally in love with the Peacock feather stencil. It´s just so nice & will surely be my to go stencil this upcoming months. Here I used it together with heavy white gesso to create a relief pattern on the base paper from Canvas Corp (Kraft & White Lace Paper). I also played around with blue Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels to create watery feeling. I used the colors Blue Bubbles, Indigo Blue & Mountain Mist.

The wordlet & flower where painted with a light coat of white gesso. Since the base paper is kraft, the chipboard in it´s natural color would not stand out as much as I would have wanted them to.

I really love this months moodboard at Anna´s Craft Cupboard. I love the color combination, and the fact that this summer actually has been more like winter. My most used item this summer has been my cote...

I also found this months challenge at Wyzwania nie-kartkowe and their lovely July Moodboard. The part of the moodboard with water colors, the part with the beach and the waterfalls inspiered me to use blues & water color techniques with my mists.

Thank you for stepping by today!

Hello sweet followers! I´m here today with my most recent layout created for the new challenge at Words & Paintery. Have you not yet found their challenges - please give them a chance - always great prizes and the challenges are just that - a real challenge!!

I created this page with a white cardstock from Canvas Corp as my base. Tattered Angels Mists blended with water make a great backdrop for my photo (by Au-contraire photography). I used Glimmer Mists in the colors Marmelade, Party Pink & Black Cherry. I also used Simply Sheer in the color Aqua.

I created texture using a old stencil I forgot the brand of, and added stamping with one of the stamp from 7 Dots Studios Hazy Days Clear Stamp Set. The delicate flower comes from Prima & the flair from UmWow Studio.

Find your happy Rose

Happy Friday Crafty Souls! Today I want to show you this layout I made for the current challenge at Kraft+ - Roses 3 ways. I so much love roses - I often buy a bunch every Friday and my favorite once are white or the semi colored ones in the picture. SO this challenge was something for me.

In my stash I have a rose stencil that has been one of my most used stencils lately. I just love the details it creates to any project. For this layout I used it together with Modeling Pate and 4 different shades of mist from Tattered Angels. I used Chalkboard Mist "Polka Dot Pink", Glimmer Mist "Taffy", Baseboard Mist "Baby Girl Pink" & Glimmer Mist "Guilded Gold"

And I must encurage you to buy Canvas Corps patterned kraft papers. They are simply gorgous! They come in all kind of colored prints on kraft - whites, golds, blacks etc. I used the "Gold & Kraft Ribbon Stripe" but I think my absolute favorite is this one. I like how the black stamping looks pretty settled on the kraft background. The stamps are designed by my dear friend Aga Baraniak.

As for the incorporated roses - well can you count to 3? The stenciled, the photo and the paper one.

This is the challenge board I found my inspiration in:

Coffee in a Wooden Cup - Scrap FX Design Team

Happy Monday sweet followers! I´m here today with my latest layout for the Scrap FX Design Team as well as the on going challenge with Scrap the Girls "Dark Moon"- the moodboard is really cool (you will find it attached in the bottom of this post)  The photo of a wooden mug with boiling hot coffee was obvious for this project, the colors is perfect for the colors in the moodboard. I also found this paper from Michael´s Recollections that had a similar wood grain pattern as you can find in the photo. 

I created textures on the background paper by adding layers of cheesecloth, glass glitter and micro beads. A coat of clear gesso and different shades of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Coffee Shop, It´s Brown, Partridge in a Pear Tree) gave the background the right colors. I wanted the background to be rather dark so that the chipboards really would be visible. The Chipboard are of course Scrap FX and called Coffee Mugs & Coffee Phrase.
