La vie est belle Scrapfx #3

 Good morning,

how are you today?

today is my last blog post in the month of January for the company ScrapFx.

Lucky me I have in my design teams a fix date so I can create weeks before I must post.

That makes the work as designer so much easier, at least for me.

But anyway, lets start with my layout.

I created my ScrapFx layout on the new paper collection Secret Garden 

from 13arts. My color choise was this time lilac, turquoise , white and black.

I usually always prepare everything for my layout,

 that means I have already chosen my photo and my embellishments.

But in this case I started with my background.

I had a little jar of lilac color over, which was on my desk

and I was in a mood for a lilac color, so way not use it, right?

I also used it on my chipboards: La vie est belle, love tag and the sketchy number from Scrapfx.

After the lilac color was dry and my stamping was done

 (I used the stamps: triangle collage stamp and circle collage stamp)

 I added to the Art Deco stencil from ScrapFx , turquoise-nacre color.

This is such a beautiful way to decorate the background.

La vie est belle...(Life is Beautiful)

I used from ScrapFx following products:

Art deco stencil

Transparency scribble circle

Sketchy numbers

La vie est belle chipboard

Film strip silhouette

She phrases 2 transparency

Triangle collage stamp

Circle collage stamp

The month is almost over now,
at least for me in relation as designer. 
Next month there will be come  NEW inspiration for you.
Until then...

Two of us Scrapbook Layout 13arts#2

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second blog post in January for the company 13@rts.

Once again I played around with an older paper collection Magnolia Dreams and

a new one called Memory Lane. These two paper collection matches perfectly together.

Two of us.

A closer look to my page:
The photo comes from Finnabair photo collection.
My title is from the 12inch by 12inch cardstock word sheet
and sometimes I like to add tiny rosebud flowers to my page.

For my background I used the stencil wings with ornament and the medium
Lots of Rainbow color and Color Glow splatters in rose gold and pink.
I use always for my DIE cutting the 6inch by 6 inch paper pad.

This is my product collage.

I hope you like my design team inspiration.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Until then.

13arts kit scrapbook layout inspiration

 Hello everyone,

if you are new in the big world of mixed media scrapbooking,

and you feel a bit overwhelmed with all the products on the market.

Here is the solution for you.

13arts has now two scrapbook mixed media kits available.

Kit #1. basic kit #1

Kit#2. complementary kit #2


A short description about my page.
I created a simple beginners mixed media scrapbook page on white cardstock.
I colored my background paper with Color Glow "Goldstone" and the liquid gel medium,
in a light soft brown color.
After that I added Rainbow "Yellow Amber" color to a stencil on my background.
I`m not going here for an exact stencil image rather for more an interesting pattern.
Then I added to the stamp which is in the kit#2 Rainbow "Navy Blue" color and I stamped 
The next step was slattering in blue and yellow.
The next was then Black Gesso and black ink stamping.
Following by glueing from the embellishments and photo.

ScrapFx #2

after that we had to take care of our oldest son`s two dogs. A border collie and a belgian shepherd.

 As you can see, I`ve been pretty busy.

But anyway.

I used from ScrapFx:

Christmas postcard paper

arrow stamp

journey stamp

number chrunch stamp

Dream Phrase stencil

Triangle pentagons stencil

Zinnia stencil

Flower head stamp

I hope you like my art journal page.

See you over a couple of days for my third blog post for the company ScrapFx.

Until then...

Go back in time

 Hello my dear followers,

How are you today?

Sometime I go back in time to look at my old scrapbook layout designs.

There are lots of pages which I created the last years.

Today`s sharing are one of my favorite scrapbook layouts.

You can`t edit your soul...

On the photo is my handsome hubby and he inspired me to create a checkerboard kind of

background with acrylic color splashes. My hubbys hobby is

 chess which he plays of a very high level.

The next scrapbook layout is a watercolor and indiaink background.
Where I added some black stamp images and a gel medium skin transfer as 
focal point.

Miss sunshine...
is a mixed media background scrapbook layout with a fussy cutting black and white photo.

The next layout is a 3D effect scrapbook layout with lots of flowers and greenery.
Minimalist spray color and embellishments as words and butterflies.

And last but not least 
a stamp and stencil background with a photo transfer image , alcohol ink colored transparency
and vintage photos.

I hope you like my back in time blog post .

Until then ...
