Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the new collection Joyous Winterdays. I chose a photomontage I’ve made.

The Lady of Chenonceau by Pascale B.

First I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added some colors with different inks, paints, and Magical: I used different stamps to add the inks, I splattered some paints, …

Next, I mixed a white acrylic paint with texture powder to add a design with a stencil.

I die cut some pine needles in the monochromes shades of Joyous Winterdays. I die cut also some snowflakes and mistletoe in a watercolor paper. I painted the snowflakes with pearl and gold paints.

I sprayed the mistletoe and the white flowers with a spray, made of gold opal magic mica powder, to add some shimmer.

I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel. And to finish the layout I added some glitter and microbeads.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose a photomontage I made inspired by the painting ” Evening Falls ” by Magritte.

The Broken Window by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Then, I added some stamping with two inks and stamps. Next, I added a design with a clear crackle paste and a stencil.

While the crackle paste was drying, I colored some chipboards with different inks. I colored the flowers with a silver ink.

Next, I colored the background with different inks.

I printed the title on a photo paper and I used the same inks to alter it. Then I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose to work with a photo of a carrelet: a typical fishing cabin that can be found in the Gironde’s estuary.

Carrelet by Pascale B.

I painted the back of a stencil with different acrylic paints. When happy with the result, I put the stencil on the background and I added immediately some heavy gesso through it. The paint showed through the heavy gesso.

While the background was drying, I colored some moss with a brown ink and some seeds with different acrilyc paints.

I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored some of them with a brown ink and the others with the same acrylic paints I used on the background.

I cut a piece of burlap and a paper to add under the photo. And I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Home for Holidays collection. I chose one of my photomontages.

The Bermuda Triangle by Pascale B.

I started to stamp some leaves and some text with different Archival inks. When happy with the result, I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste. I let dry.

In the meantime, I covered the shells with white crackle paste. I primed the boat with white gesso, then with clear gesso, and finally, I was able to add some colors.

With the same inks, I colored some Art Stones as well as natural moss.

I added some shine to the flowers with inks. And when the shells were dry, I primed them with clear gesso before coloring them too.

As the background was dry, so I added some colors with the same inks I have used to color the different embellishments.

I cut some papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel. To finish the layout I added some microbeads.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring one of my favorite collection Enjoying Outdoors.

Lavender Card by Pascale B.

Making cards is a good way to get rid of all the leftovers of papers you have accumulated over the past months or should I say years. I don’t know how you keep them, but I found that keeping them in a pocket with the collection is the best way to use them. When I was first starting scrapbooking I put all the leftovers together, but when I wanted one, well, I never found the right one! Now I know that if I don’t find it, it’s because I don’t have it and I will have to cut some beautiful paper! Let see how I made these cards!

Lavender Card by Pascale B.

Even if both cards look different, the way I made them is the same. First, I chose in my leftover from the Enjoying Outdoors collection, which one I could use. When I didn’t find the right one, My next move is to look in the 6×6 paper pad.

Lavender Card by Pascale B.

When I found all the scraps of paper I needed, I inked the edges to add some contrast before gluing them directly to the card base.

I die cut some leaves in two green papers from the collection and I inked the edges.

Then I added a few flowers.

On this card, I even added some lavender sprigs from my garden. To prevent them from falling apart when they dried, I covered them with gel medium.

And to finish the layout of the cards I added some microbeads.

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com
