Beautiful Memories Layout for ***Renea Bouquets*** & Playing at *Lindy's Stamp Gang* & * Scrap and Me*!!!

 Goodmorning lovely friends, 

How sweet of you to visit my blog, here in The Netherlands it's nice warm weather just as I like it the summer kicked in Oh Yeah!!!. Today I would like to share a layout that's close to my heart. I made this layout with the newest Maja Design collection called "Tropical Garden" which has beautiful pale & soft tones in it. Why is this layout so special you may wonder well it's because of the picture {you probably guessed that already} I made this picture without both knowing I did they had a special moment here and I captured it......

Beautiful Memories: 

With this layout I will be entering two challenges this time one at Scrap and Me blog challenge #81 use this color pallette well at least three of the colors. I have used all four of them!

And the next one is at the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog June 2021 challenge ingrediĆ«nt use flowers and at least two colors I have used three.

Me & My Big Brother layout for *** Renea Bouquets***!!!

 Goodmorning lovely friends, 

How nice of you to visit my blog today, this time I would like to share another layout created with all amazing Renea Bouquets products. I am very excited about this one because Renea designed the "me & my big brother" phrase for me when I asked her it's that sweet? Abbey just loves her big bro that she always wants to play with him on the slide, swing set & seesaw and Kevin just does it without whining about it.

My & My Big Brother: 

I just love it how the cobalt blue & light yellow go so well together. For this layout I used a bunch of beautiful Renea Bouquets embellishments & two Maja Design collections Coffee in the Arbour and Life by the Sea. I added some lace behind the blue & white stripped sheet to give my layout some demension!

I also added a script stencil by finnabair on my background and I used some sprays....I let the phrase pop out by using the same yellow sheet as I used underneath my lace. And the cut it out and distredded the edges a little I finished my layout by using sequins & art stones.

Renea Bouets products used: 


 Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and I hope I have inspired you to use your pretty Renea Bouquets products and show us your art with them.

I also would love to see your comments & if you have any questions you can always ask me

"Unusual" In Your Eyes Playing at ***More Than Words*** May 2021 Mini Challenge!!

Goodmorning my lovely friends, 
Today I'd like to show you a tag made for this months mini challenge over at the More Than Words blog! This time you need to use the word "Eyes" which I thought was very applicable since my occupation is working as a optician. I treasure my Graphic 45 "Olde Curiosity Shoppe"papers & I just LOVE this collection so so much. That I just don't want to cut in them so this tag was all made out of scraps 

In Your Eyes:

I really love the song "In Your Eyes" by The Weekend. So this tag was made based on that song. And I was listening to it while creating this tag. 

I was inspired by this months mini challenge at the More Than Words blog; More Than Words Blog May 2021 Mini Challenge Eyes.....I just loved this mini challenge. 

Thank you so much for your visit today and I wish you a happy & sunny day hugs

Me Heart You Layout for ***Renea Bouquets*** & ***Maja Design***!

Goodmorning my sweet friends, 

 How lovely of you to visit my blog today! I would like to show you another layout I created with some of the new Renea Bouquets products which I totally love like the lemon tuc ins & bees. Our daughter Abbey really loves flowers and always wants to be surrounded by them. So this time another picture of her in between some beautiful flowers.

Me Heart You: 

I layered three different Maja Design sheets from the Coffee in the Arbour collection, which is a great fit for the pretty lemons. As one sheet has some pretty lemons on it. The top sheet I placed a little on the side as I wanted something different then just straight. The I added some sprays & a stencil which fitted the pretty grid element.

I really enjoy creating with all the pretty Renea Bouquets products just because they go so well with the Maja Design papers. Ans also because they are a feast to the eye...I painted the pretty ivy & the grid element green and then used some of my precious waxes. I also added some waxes on the beautiful boards that I kept nutral. 

On the the yellow upper sheet I stamp with a stitch stamp around the edges to make it pop a little more then on the end I added some beautiful glass hearts which are one of my favorite items by Renea Bouquets and some art stones, pearl fine glitter glass & butterfly kisses butterflies. AlsoI lightened up the centers of the sweet daisies.

Brotherly Love Lasts Forever Layout Playing at *49 and Market* & *More Than Words* & *Finnabair's Art Recipe* & *Mixed Media Place* & * Lindy's Stamp Gang*!!!

Goodmorning my lovely friends,

Today I'd like to show you another layout and again just for fun. I really love this photo of Kevin & Abbey. I think it's one of my most precious ones that's because you see the love Kevin has for his little sister a bond that can never be broken. For this layout I used all 49 and Market papers, embellishments and flowers but all the mediums I have used are by Finnabair.

Brotherly Love Lasts Forever: 

I also used this months sketch at the 49 and Market Fans Facebook page but also the one at the More Than Words blog. This time I flipped the 49 and Market one so it looked more like the one at More Than Words. As most of you know I am a hugh sucker for the color purple and again this month there was a beautiful moodboard at the finnabair blog so I could not resist to enter a second time.

I cut the "Reminisence"sheet and placed the outside edges inwards I hope you know what I mean by that...then I placed on top of the other woodgrain sheet from the same collection and distressed the edges also I used a stitch stamp on now what are the outer edges then I randomly added the script stamp & a Finnabair stencil so now my background is ready.

On the some what blue flowers I added some art alchemy opal magic paint in the color blue-pink. On the purple flowers I used some finnabair waxes {sweet rose & heather hills}, also the cirkel underneath my photo is treated with art alchemy paint metallique vintage rose & impasto paste lavender. To finish of my layout I added some wishing bubbles, art stones and white paint splatters.

As I told you before I really love the sketches at the 49 and Market blog/facebook page they are very inspiring to me. This time I rotated it to the left and used just one picture. I am very excited to see the new one for the month May.

I was also very happy to see that More Than Words had a sketch this month. You could use or be inspired by the word perfect for me this is the perfect photo of the love and bond between two siblings. To my kids "Always Remember"that! 

As I just love purple & pink that's why I fell in love with the April Art Recipe at the Finnabair blog. 

The colours: pastel pink, pastel blue, lilac!
You could choose two of the four products listed and those where: 
Icing paste, Jewel Effect Paste, Impasto Paint or ArtAlchemy Metallique Paint!

For my layout I used: Impasto Paint in the color Lavender & ArtAlchemy Metallique Paint {three different ones}

Finnabair products used: 
Alchemy Opal Magic Violet-Gold
Alchemy Opal Magic Blue-Pink
Alchemy Metallique Was Heather Hills
Impasto Paint Lavender 

I was so excited to see that Mixed Media Place had a very similar mood board as at the Finnabair blog. So I thought well why not enter here too it's my second time to enter there...I always see their pretty moodboards but I never found the time to make something for it and then the challenge is over before I know it ;-) Looks how pretty.....

I really loved the color challenge at the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog very much that I entered twice too ;-) Look at their amzing color challenge.
