Our Beautiful Honey Layout Playing at ***Mixed Media Academy*** & ***Scrap And Me*** & ***13 Arts***!!!

Goodmorning lovely friends, 

I am longing for summer warmer nights, happy people & lots of sunshine. Spring is the next best thing new flowers little baby animals like cows, horses, bunnies & more. For this layout I was inspired by the gorgeous April mood board at both Mixed Media Academy & 13 Arts for the last one it was a challenge to not use pink as that is very easy when you have a picture of your little girl. So I went for yellows and minty teals {if that's a color lol} I have used two collections by 13 Arts named "Aura Rose" & "Aria Story"

Our Beautifil Honey 

I was very inspired my this months moodboard at Mixed Media Academy, I am normally not such a fan of the color yellow for my layouts but in combination with the minty teal I just loved it. I was also inspired by the flowers & buttons in this amazing moodboard. I ripped the two papers I used in pieces and then placed it on top off each other after that I added a stencil by finnabair called "Wild Berries"



The flowers on my layout are some older flowers by Prima Marketing and the other flowers are by 49 and Market. The beautiful boards lasercut chipboards you see are designed by the lovely Renea from Renea Bouquets I just love her amazing designs. Some of the beautiful boards lasercuts are not treated with anything but the frame underneath the picture is treated with some powder blue paste by finnabair and also the dragonflies you see in my layout are treated with the same paste.




Before I added the stencil I used some clear stamps on the background of my layout as some different lindy's sprays & mika powders. To finish my layout I added some art stones, sequins {the yellow ones are by 13 Arts} and some wishing bubbles in minty teal & grey. 



With this layout I will be entering three challenges the first one is at: 


You had to use at least three colors from this amazing mood board I used the yellows, minty teals and grey.....I really loved the freshness of this moodboard.....

The second one is at: 

Scrap and Me

Challenge #79 make a project bassed on spring which I did, their amazing DT made some lovely samples which are very inspiring. Just use the link above this sentence to see!!

The third one is at:  

 13 Arts

For me it's very easy to take out my pink papers and start to create a layout....so for my own challenge I did not use pink ;-) {that was pretty hard tho} For this challenge you had to use at least two colors from the board which I did....

Thank you so much for your visit & I really hoped I have inspired you with this project...have a wonderful day!

Memories are Perfect Layout paying at ***Finnabair March 2021 Art Recipe*** & ***49 and Market April Sketch**** & ***More Than Words***!!!

 Hi lovely friends, 

Thank you so much for your visit today, lately I feel very inspired by the Art Recipes at the Finnabair blog and I am more & more into mixed media everytime I create something. For this layout I used two sketches one at the 49 and Market blog & one at the More Than Words blog the last one I rotated on the side. At the last one you could use the word perfect or be inspired by it! The pictures are from a perfect memory we created back in 2010 when being on our vacation in Spain.


For this 12 by 12 layout I used the pretty "Paradise Island"collection by 49 and Market and a whole bunch of stamps & flowers....the moodboard got me thinking of the beach with all the lovely textures created by mother nature. I used some dried seaweed moss & dried plants that my husband gave me as a gift a while back and never got to use it untill now. I also wanted to show you the pretty woodgrain papers so I cut some parts and placed them in between my pictures. Underneath my pictures you see some of natures elements too but I could not tell you what it's called....sorry!




On my background sheet I added some of the dark forest paint with a tissue that is such a easy way to apply paint and it gives it a nice crackled look. After that I added a script stamp & Gabi's herbaceous stamp set by 49 and Market.




Then I added a stencil by The Dusty Attic although I wish I had a stencil of that by prima {Finnabair} so my layout was only 49 and Market & Finnabair but hey it does it's work. Then I sprayed some mica powder on the background and finished my layout off with white splatters.




The colours: dark green, latte brown, dark teal!
You could choose two of the four products listed and those where: 
 Pebbles, Icing Pastes, Mechanicals or Tissue Papers!

For mine layout I used: Pebbles & Mechanicals {I used five different ones}
Finnabair Products used: 

 


 As you see here this is this months amazing sketch by 49 and Market which I totally love & kept it very much alike the only thing that is different is the tittle in a other spot.

The third challege I am entering is the one at the More Than Words blog the only thing I did was flip it over on the right side if you know what I mean ;-) 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I hope I have inspired you to be creative in every way you can. Stay safe & happy and have a wonderful weekend!!!

Sweet Dreams My Little Fairy Layout for ***Renea Bouquets*** & ***Maja Design***!

Goodmorning & Happy April Lovely Fiends, 
Today I am posting a layout made with all with Renea Bouquets beautiful products! As you maybe know by now I am a die hard layout maker, I began about 17 years ago and in the beginning I always made dubble pages but in the process of my scrapbooking years they became single pages. Sometimes I think and start trying to make a double one but that idea never sticks with me for long....for today I have a single page again lol....that started in my mind as a double page.
On this layout I used a picture of our little Abbey when she was about 3 months old this time I went for a romantic layout.

Sweet Dreams My Little Fairy: 
For this layout I off course used some amazing Maja Design papers the "Miles Apart" collection which is a wonderful fit for the pretty Dragonflies & beautiful roses by Renea Bouquets. The colours match very well. I will make a short video that you can find below with the names of the products I have used here.  

As you see I ripped the papers in pieces and then layered them the way I wanted to, so the pink papers peak through in one part but I wanted to have the green as my focal point. Behind the green I added the beautiful lace I think lace on your layout makes it really feminine. On top of my green sheet I added a script stencil.


I am so much in love with the beautiful dragonflies by Renea Bouquets that I just want them all lol...I am very happy to be designer for Renea for the rest of this year.


Maja Design papers used: Be Safe bs & Distance

Seize the Imperfection Tags Playing at ***Mixed Media Place*** & ***More Than Words Mini Challenge***!

 Hello lovely bloggers, 

It's so nice to see you here today, this time I would like to share some mixed media tags that I especially created for two challenge sites. I am so much in love with the moulds by Finnabair & Prima Marketing that I just bought two of them with my birthday money. For these tags I used both moulds "Grungy Frames"and "Numerals"....I created the tags with Maja Design papers of two collections "Traditional Christmas" & "Denim and Friends"! The flowers are off course by 49 and Market. I call them my "Seize the Imperfection" tags and that's because I am not a perfect mould maker, since it's my first time using it...

Seize the Imperfection:  

Lately I am creating a lot of tags that I am out of my {Graphic 45 packaging stash} Ohhhh what to do now need to buy more scrap stuff lol hahahaha. Do you see those dragonflies?? They are by the amazing Renea from Renea Bouquets she is such a talented designer I am in love with her products. 



With these tags I am entering two challenges the first one is at Mixed Media Place they have a gorgeous moodboard where you had to use Turquoise and Red and so I did.


The second challenge I am going to enter is the Mini Challenge over at the More Than Words blog where the word is * SEIZE *
I hope you I have enjoyed you with my post and I would like to wish you a wonderful day, night and a whole lot more....hug!

Moments to Smile Everyday Layout for ***Maja Design*** + Playing at Scrap and Me & Scrapaholics!!

 Goodmorning Lovely Fans,

How nice of you to visit my blog today! As most of you know I love to mix and match collections what is amazing to do with all the Maja design lines. For this layout I used five collections because I wanted to follow a moodboard at a challenge site which was light teal, pink, grey and white. The grey flowers are handmade and super easy to do. The white paper with the clocks is my favorite sheet from the "Crea Diem"collection I used two, from one I cut out the clocks to add extra on my layout.

Moments to Smile Everyday: 

The grey paper I used as the base of my layout on that one I added the sheet from the "Vintage Summer Basics" in the light teal color. All the papers are distressed and I used  stamps and a stencil on the background. The rest of the flowers are off course by 49 and Market. I love to use pictures of our little Abbey she is growing up so fast trying to say difficult words just to funny she makes our lives compleet & happy.


The chipboard pieces are by scrapaholics and are treated with white gesso, ink, paint, sprays and the words with embossing powders. From the 'Miles Apart"collection I cut out a whole bunch of roses & leaves that I placed around my picture. The cute little butterflies are from a sheet from the 'Vintage Spring Basics"collection.




The stencil I used is by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco whom I totally miss in this creative world....On the 6th of this month it was my husband's and also my birthday he turned 50 this year I made him a Abrahim lol just too funny. I turned 43 this year a green leaf like he always sais lol hahahaha.....He was so sweet to give me such a nice present he gave me a new sewing machine for scrapping but they could not deliver it because they all had to back because there was something wrong with them {I am so sad about that hopefully I will have it back soon} I miss sewing on my layouts it was one of my trademarks on my work and now it was a long time I did...




Maja Design papers used: Crea Diem: den oersattliga tiden, Nyhavn: king's square, Vintage Summer Basics: 1943, Miles Apart: the little things & ephemera, Vintage Spring Basics: 6th of May.


With this layout I will be entering two challenge one over at the Scrap an Me Blog on this blog it's a bingo challenge #78 which is my birth year that's why I had to play along. I have used the row in the middle Flowers, Chipboard and Butterflies 

 

And for the second one it was a pretty moodboard at Scrapaholics Open Studio at Facebook justhave a look: pretty right???
I sure hope I have inspired you to be creative ;-) 
What are the most collections you have ever used to make a layout? I am very curious I think this is mine but to make sure I really have to go back in time. I will tell you in my next post....have a wonderful day and please stay safe & healthy.
