Finding You # 3



















Way behind...but getting there :-)
Decided to scan the pages before the journaling was added so you can all enjoy the background I made, and not looking at blurry text.

Inspired by the picture I chose to use for this weeks assignment, I decided to make my own background, not using any patterned papers this week.

First I coloured the background with watercolour paint. Then I added accents / changed the colours a bit by dabbing some Colorbox Cat's Eye ink on it.
Next I stamped on "the water" and "the beach" with Versamark ink and added some Perfect Pearls from Ranger to it to get this cool shiny metal effect.
I used my new Autumn Leaves Big Swirl stamps with silver colour Colorbox ink for the finishing touch.

The lettering on the left page are Autumn Leaves stamps also, and the white outlining of the letters was done with a white UNI POSCA pen.
These pens are a must have; if you wanna know more, then click on the link to see what they can do and to see the available colours

Mother's Day - DT kit Memory Lane

Last month our DT assignment was to make something with the red, cream and black collection from Autumn Leaves with the following theme: Mother.






I altered a 3D photoframe from Ikea; printed an old picture of my mother on an inkjet transparency and adhered it to the cardboard frame on which I glued 4 different pieces of patterned paper. On the background of the 3D frame I glued a big bloomer (check them out HERE) and you can see it through my mother's face.
The final effect is kind of difficult to photograph so I hope you get the point.

Wanna see what the rest of the DT did with this assignment?
Then have a look HERE

Enjoy your sunday :-)

Finding You #2

I stamped the background with bubble wrap; the effect is really cool I think :-).
My goal for this workshop is to refind my discipline..... I used to be EXTREMELY disciplined, but somewhere along the way I lost it.

It has nothing to do with my job or anything...I just need more discipline to achieve some things I think will make my life better.... but first I need that discipline back!
