Hello my dear friends!!!

Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout using papers from the beautiful ”Vintage Summer Basic” collection.

In this layout I tried to give you a cozy sense using this beautiful photo found on Pinterest, which reminds me relaxed Sundays mornings. There is nothing better than having a hot cup of coffee lying in your comfortable couch. Don’t you think?

But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”1903” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”1912”  and the ”1932” papers using both sides of the last one. I also placed some torn pieces from the pages fo an old book.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I applied some white gesso. When dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cocoa Bean Copper” and ”Sassy Sapphire” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the title words with ”Byzantine Bronze” and the small border chipboard pieces with ”Cafe au lait”. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited” and the flair is ”Cuts2luv”.

As a final touch, I added some mica flakes in ”Henna” and made some splatters with 13arts white gesso.

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present my first inspiration.  I love vintage and shabby chic style. I’m a big fan of layers, laces and chipboards.  Cards are one from my favourite type of projects to create. Here is my today’s inspiration :
Card by Padoriaa

Papers from the collection called “Vintage Romance” fits perfectly to my project.  I pick few papers and started to prepare the composition. Next was to added some flowers, metal embellishments and chipboard. Cut out elements from the paper and use them like the central point of my card.

Flowers together with ribbon and laces. Many tiny elements together.

Vintage stamp with perfect sentence.  Here I used different shades of ink to stamp. It look really nice instead of using a black ink.

My cards are full of  layers and elements but I always try to make them light. It’s not easy, it takes time  but I love the final result.

In the end I applied white gesso and splash it with white and gold paint.

Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”I Wish” collection. I really love these papers because although it is a Christmas collection can easily be used in non-Christmas pages. Take for example mine…

This time I made a soft romantic page with this beautiful photo, which as always found on Pinterest.  And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish to play in the Snow” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”I wish you a Happy new Year”  and the ”I wish for frosty mornings” papers. I also placed some pieces from an old book and made a fussy cutting on some vintage clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics ”No XVI” paper.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I heat embosed the paste with ”Golden Angel Wings” Lindy’s powder to make the texture more obvious. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cowabunga Copper” and ”Cape Cod Coral” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the floral chipboards and the title with ”Byzantine Bronze”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

Close up 4

As a final touch, I added some bronze microbeads and some Prima Memory Hardware – Glass Pearls.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Mary here with you today and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ”I Wish” collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe on Santa? I still believe… and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ”I wish we will deck the halls”, the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas”. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ”I wish – Ephemera”.

Close up 2

I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ”Purely White” embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.
