Fly high

After a wonderful week out of town, along with awesome company and friends, I'm back at home
I have a brand new page to share with you today.  It's a layout created with 13 Arts products!
I had a blast creating this page, as I used the wonderful Ayeeda Pastel Mists in my favourite colours (teal, mint, lime & blue) as well as some mixed media techniques. I just love messing up with colours!

So this page is all about not allowing our fears to hinder us from flying (in any form lol).


As you see, I combined several mists, paints & gesso to create my textured background!


I highlighted the background with the use of stamps.

Take your time - 13 Arts July challenge

Hello everyone!!!

Here I am today with the brand new challenge of 13 Arts!
It's Aida who hosts the challenge this month!
Now what we have to do is 

use this brilliant sketch & 2 mediums


Our project must contain at least ONE BUTTERFLY in it, in any form -as background, embellishment, stamp etc!

So this is my take on the challenge
(I decided for a lighter, not-too-loaded page, to accent the use of stamps and of the mediums)

So I hope you like my page!!! Take the time to visit the projects of the rest of the DT, all of them are gorgeous!

Have a nice day!

Friends

Hello again!

Today I'm re-introducing myself at the 7 Dots Studio blog...
And I feel that I have to thank Tusia for this 3rd term at the 7 Dots DT!  Thank you so much, sweet Tusia, for this chance!

Now let's talk about friendship...
It's always so beautiful, although rare, to have people in your work who are your friends, also. The time you spend at work becomes easier and more pleasant. With this layout I want to celebrate my friendship with one of my colleagues, Joanna... Lots and lots and lots of layering and mixed media here, as well as a bold and busy background (from the "9th Wave collection, what else?).  Stamps are an important part of it, adding the touch of black for contrast. As you see, having a background paper like the 9th Wave-Stormy Sea is enough for not using any other paper in a layout.  That's why I love this collection. It is half of the work itself!


some details


I love this Word Circle of 2 Crafty Chipboard newest collection!!!
I gessoed it and inked it with beige chalk ink!
I have also used the Corner Elegant Set, in the left and right side of my cluster, which I stamped and painted it with some gesso, as well!

That's all from me now!
Hope you have a great weekend!
I'll be back soon!

Time is priceless - 13 Arts

Hello ladies!

Today is a very big day for me as I'm making my official debut as a 13 Arts Design Team Member!
Those of you that already know me can identify me with masks, paints, inks and all the ...messy stuff that makes the hands of a scrapbooker dirty lol!  I just LOVE playing with colours and creating shapes, when I design pages!

So Aida entrusted me with the task to keep my hands dirty with all the AMAZING 13 Arts paints, mists and mediums for the next months! Thank you, Aida, I do appreciate it!

Now today I want to share with you a page I made using the Timeless collection, which I always craved for and now I have it in my hands!

My page is about time.  When I first saw the photo at Pinterest, I was reminded how many times we lose chances in our life, because we just arrived... late.  The train will not always be there for us.  Therefore time is precious and we must make the most out of it. I actually think that health as well as time are the most valuable things in life.  Ok enough said!






some details




For my background I always blend different kind of paints and mediums, to create texture and give dimension to my page.  Here I have mixed modelling paste, gesso, paint, stamps and mists! A bit of everything, that is!
