Daddy's Gorgeous Girl Layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!

 Hello lovely friends,

Welcome to my blog, today I am showing you a layout with a bunch of gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard pieces. I am a massive fan of making beach & wintery layouts this time I chose a beach one, with a picture of Abbey and her bucket full of shells. The papers I used are by Maja Design and are two different collections. The picture was taken last year, Abbey loves the beach and she always says "it's sunny on the beach mommy" you have to put sunscreen on me. 

Daddy's Gorgeous Girl: 

 2Crafty Chipboards used: 
Daddy's Girl

Firstly I coated all the chipboard pieces with a thin layer of white gesso, then I used a couple of different acrylic & liquid paints to cover my chipboard pieces. On some of them I dabbed a darker brown paint randomly and others I used waxes on. 


On the background I did some mixed media such as stamps, inks and sprays and I finished of my layout by adding some art stones, sea shells, flair {long time ago since I used them} and some word strips. I also used some metal pieces. 


I would like to thank you all for being here with me today and for your amazing support. I really love this creative journey I am sharing with you all ....

Altered Light Bulb for ***Finnabair*** Guest Designer May 2022!!!

 Hello Lovely Creative Friends, 
 I am very gratefull & excited
to show you my project as this months guest designer on the Finnabair blog.
For this accasion I decorated a glass light bulb that my husband bought me a while back.
I call it: "I give you some light in these dark days"
looking at all that's happening in The Ukraine right now!


Altered Light Bulb: 

First I gessod it with heavy black gesso after that I applied tissue paper with some soft matte gel.
I always use raisin for making my moulds. This time I took it out a little sooner then I normally do so I could bend it to fit my light bulb.
Since it was not fully dried I pressed it against my light bulb and voila it's stuck on there. 




Then I painted it with the darker red & soft pink colors from the vintage roses mica powder set and some water. I also used some other colors acrylic paints to alter my frame. 
After that I arranged my flowers and glued them on my light bulb at the end I added some mechanicals pieces.I also used some different waxes on my frame as well as on my flowers.

2 Cards for ***Scrap And Me*** Challenge #92 For Mom!!!

Hello my crafty friends, 
Happy May it's the 8th of the month and that means another challenge over at the ScrapAndMe blog. This time the challenge is "For Mom" since it is mothersday today I made one card for my mother in law & one for my own mom. 
The red one was made with the pretty "Vintage Garden" collection {for my mom} and the purple one was made with the "Aquarelles" collection {for my mother in law}. As I said before I always make two cards I just love doing that, always in the same style but different colors.


For the bases of the cards I just used plain cardstock and on top of that I added a sheet from the "Rosy Days" collection {on both cards} with the white woodgrain. Then I added some cut out elements from the both collection I mentioned above. I also cut out the pretty butterflies and placed them randomly on my cards.

My Lovely Mom:

To finish my cards I added some rub-ons, wishing bubbles and some white spray {finally got my favorite white spray yeah....so happy!

Shine Bright Always Layout for ***ScrapAndMe***!

 Hello lovely fiends!

Today I show you some inspiration with the pretty 'Sunflowers" collection by ScrapAndMe for this layout I aged the pictures of our Abbey surrounded by gorgeous yellow flowers. The sunflowers are handmade with an older die by Cheery Lynn Designs that I had in my stash, for the centres I used glitter glass by Renea Bouquets...I did a lot of mixed media on this layout.

Shine Bright Always: 

First, I prepped the background sheet with clear gesso to, later on, use some sprays & a stencil. I distressed the edges of all the outer sides of my sheets. And I finished my layout by adding some crystals & art stones.
