Hello my friends! Happy Easter to all of you!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the ”Nyhavn” and the new ”Monochromes-Shades of Sofiero” collections.

A layout filled with colorful flowers that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unkown” photographer.

I used for my background the ”King’s Square” paper from the ”Nyhavn” collection and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Blush/Rouge” paper from the ”Monochromes” collection using it’s both sides.

Goodmoning lovelies,

Are you enjoying your week? Well I am and that’s because we are on a weekend trip from yesterday through Sunday and I am so super excited because hubby and I need some special free time. Today I would like to show you a layout I created with the lovely “Summertime” collection which includes a gorgeous picture of my cousin her daughter on her wedding day. My cousin and are just two months apart and I am the older one hehe she gave birth on a really young age she was just seventeen. And I could not have imagined her daughter to grow up and be such a wonderful young lady that she is now. Due to my cousin was such a party animal when she was that age well enough talking about my family up to my layout.

All the chipboard pieces are treated with gesso, ruste paste and rusty powder. On the background sheet I sprayed with several sprays and then I stamped with the new designed stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco that I got in my latest DT package from 49 and Market. I just love her work and miss her being on this design team…..I really enjoy creating with this Summertime collection that you can say ot’s my NEW fav…. :-) Then I added a stencil design that looks like metall and I really like the effect it has on my layout.

On the long swirl chippie on the right side of my picture I also added a stamp frome the same collection as the little crosses. And on the picture I used a word stamp also designed by Gabi. To finish my layout I added some 3D balls in two different sizes and some of the clocks from a sheet in the “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection and some butterflies from “Vintage Spring Basics”collection. I also did some machine stitching on the outer side of my layout and on the fishtale banners.

Hello our blog fans 😉 Time flies, definitely  ! It is the last moment to create some card for Easter :) Hope you have found some time to do it already … I need to hurry up …. Here are my first two card for this occasion :

DSC_6893   I started to create my project by choosing the paper and add-ons. My idea was to create a little bit unsual  cards – that’s why you will not find Easter eggs there :)

EasterFor the base I used the “Mono Straw Wheat” from Monochromes  Collection. These papers fits perfectly to the other collections!  Next one was Vintage Spring Basics with the amazing pastel and floral patterns.

EasterEasterDSC_6884Hope you will like my project. I would like to wish all of you HAPPY EASTER that is filled with plenty of love and happiness :*

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new mixed media layout featuring both the “Enjoying Outdoors” and the “I Wish” collections.

Orchid Beauty by Pascale B.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I prepared a paste with 3D Gloss Gel and the Rust and the Gold Opal Magic Mica Powders. I added a first design with this homemade paste and a stencil.

I prepared a second paste with the Rusty Red Art Alchemy and the Texture Powder: the result is a matte paste. I used a second stencil to add another design and let dry everything.

I painted the orchids with the Rusty Red paint and added more gold to them with the Gold Opal Magic. I die-cut some branches in a watercolor paper.

I colored the background with Moonshadow spray ink and Magicals to match the colors of the photo. I added also some random stamping.

I cut some papers from the I Wish collection to match and add under the photo. I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.
