June ART playground layout Inspiration...

Hello my dear blog readers,

last month I introduce you to a new challenge blog called: ART playground

 Here is the Link:  artplayground

Congratulation dear Sharon for the amazing success and all the work behind the challenge.

But now it is time for the new challenge.

The June mood board comes with soft pastel colors and the theme:

"go with the flow"

 In order to "go with the flow" 
it`s not only needed to have good mediums and lovely papers to work with.
That means also to me to have a beautiful and clean desk, a cup of tea and music, too.
This is what I need for "go with the flow"
I also have a desk where all my favorite products are standing open....
I need that to be inspired and also to create with a flow.
The same applies to my creative process... I need order to create a mixed media layout.
Eight years ago when I started with scrapbook and mixed media ...I watched a lot of tutorials on YouTube
and after that I made a list  with each steps.
Afterwards I repeated this steps on dollar store paper over and over again, until I could do everything without looking at
my list...I started to play with the steps....I skipped some steps, or I added a different color or, or, or.....
This means for me "go with the flow" 
I do not want to encourage you to copy ...I want to encourage you to come into the flow
by having confidence with the products you have..

and here is my layout for you:

I used for this layout:
Regular white Cardstock.
Pan Pastel, Permanent Red Tint and Ultramarine Blue Tint
Prima modeling paste, 
Distress oxide, picked raspberry.
Archival Ink watering can.
Unity stamp company , HUG stamps.
Lindys spray chateau rose, sidewalk chalk, geranium coral blush embossing powder and angel wings mauve embossing powder
Memory box DIE: large ringlets, honeycomb remnant.
Faber Castell polychromos venetian red.
Also from my stash: Lace, feathers, pearls, drops, paper lace, metal wings.

My dear friends I hope you feel a little bit inspired

to play along with the beautiful mood board.

Until then I wish you a great month wherever you are...

More Than Words June DT layout

Hello June, hello dear blog readers...

can you believe, June already... time flies so fast...

We had here in The Netherlands very warm days...I spent many hours in my garden.

All my flowers grows and grows so beautifully. I love my outside room.

but now it is time to invite you to the brand new challenge on the blog from More than Words.

Here is the link: morethanwords

Journey and Maps...


What does the word JOURNEY inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it.  Since words are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know how this month's word stimulated your creative process, so please do explain in your blog post how 
it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

For this month's creative challenge, we want you to use a MAP to get creative and go exploring! We want to see something from a map on your project. You may decide to add components like land outlines, roads, a compass, arrows, a legend or even a globe. You may want to tuck a piece of the map itself in between your paper layers or make your entire background a map. Let the map be your guide and inspiration on your creative journey!


 For this challenge I decided to take a photo of our youngest daughter Mia which was taken in Turkey. It was the last vacation week of elementary school ( this was also our first daughter and mother vacation) and I find that the word JOURNEY fits perfectly with the photo. I included the creative challenge 
by using a MAP stamp on my background.

Maybe you would like to join us this month?

but you need more inspirations, no problem...go to the blog from More Than Words

to admire all the beautiful design team work.....

and maybe this is wat you need to join in this month..

I see you on the blog from MTW.

Have a beautiful day.
