Selfie (families are forever) - Stuck?! Sketches Feb 15th reveal

 Today I would like to share with you a new layout I've made for Feb 15th reveal at Stuck?! Sketches.
This is the wonderful sketch, designed by Laura Whitaker:
I turned the sketch on the side.
I used my Feb Counterfeit Kit for this layout, with the beautiful paper from Altair Art.
I created some texture with modeling paste and stencil, and then added some colors with Lindy's Gang sprays - Sassy Sapphire & Cotton Candy Pink. I also used this sprays plus Silent Night Steel and Creme Brulee Cream to add splatters all over.
Stamping with Kaisercraft's stamps, fussy cutting from more beautiful papers from Altair Art and some DIY enamel dots, flair button, doily and homemade resins - all to embellish around the frame and the photo of the 3 of us. I also used some Robin's Nest dew drops. I think they add so much to my lo
I've used some Creative Embellishments chippies - the frame and, diamond shape and the 'Selfie' title. All of the chippies were coverd with white gesso, and then got several coats with Lindy's Gang embossing powders (King Midas Gold & Desert Moon Turquise for the title and the diamond shape; Midnight Blue Slate, Cosmic Blue Violet and Silver Moon Sapphire for the frame).
Here are some close-ups on the details:

I would like to enter this lo to the following challenges:
More than Words - Forever & Heart
I was inspired by the theme of love forever and the heart shape created by the couple's hands. I thought of the begining of a family and that families are forever, hence the sentiment I've placed on the right side of my lo.
Creative Embellishments - moodboard plus hand writing.
I was inspired by the shabby chic/vintage design and colors and by the flower. I was also inspired by the multi layers and so is my design. I also have hand writing both on the stamped sentiment and the foam die-cut.
Summer Studio - moodboard #41:
I was inspired by the pastel colors, with the combination of pink, pale blue, turquise, pale yellow and a touch of glod. The flowers were also an inspiration.

A shabby chic style envelope box for Altair Art

Hello dear crafty friends and welcome to my blog.
I'm sharing a shabby chic style envelope/box I've made as a DT assignment for Altair Art.
The gorgeous shabby chic papers are so beautiful it makes my heart sing.
The inspiration came from LST #5 at Lemoncraft, with a wonderful tutorial that I follwed very closely. 
I did some mixed media on the front cover, and some Lindy's Gang sprays all over (LSG sprays that I've used: Cotton Candy Pink; Wild Honeysuckle Coral; Pop Rock Purple. I've also used Angel Wings gold embossing powder)
Here's how the back cover looks:

The inside with the pocket, where you can place a chocolate bar, or a mini album, or a greeting card, etc.

And some close-ups on the details:

I would like to enter it to the following challenges:
Lindy's Gang, with this moodboard:
Lemoncraft - LST no. 5.
Scor Pal - more than one fold 'anything goes' 
Summer Studio - moodboard no. 41:
I was inspired by the different shades of pink, by the flowers, the little touch of green and the feminine feeling of the moodboard.
Mixed Media & Art - moodboard:
I was inspired by the soft pastel colors, the pink and the cluster of flowers.
Thank you for stopping by. your comments are much appreciated.

An altered storage tray

This is my DT project for The Robin's Nest blog, using the beautiful Dew Drops.
A girl can never have too many Lindy's Gang products.... but she needs a place to store them!
Since I love to alter and re-use, I decided to take this cardboard tray I got ages ago, and make a shabby chic style tray for all my LSG sprays and embossing products.
This is how the tray looked at the begining:
At first, I unfolded the tray and coverd it with gesso. Then I added some texture with stencil and modeling paste.
The next stage was coloring with Lindy's Gang sprays, diluted with water. I used TiffanyLoo Blue and Cotton Candy Pink.
Next I adhered lace flowers and leaves and added some more color with Steampunk Sepia and Creeme Brulee Cream. Adding some flowers and coloring them also with some TiffanyLoo Blue.
For the final touch, I embellished the tray with the fab Robin's Nest Dew Drops. They add such a wonderful touch to every project!

And now I have a shabby chic style tray to store my LSG products!

A wedding card - Love is in the air at Altair Art

Hello dear friends! 
I'm so excited to share with you my first project for Altair Art, for our 2018 1st challenge, which is 'Love is in the air'. 
I've used my Feb Counterfeit Kit for this card.
The beautiful romantic papers of Altair Art are so perfect for any 'love' theme project, and I will share with you more projects I've made with their gorgeous papers during this month.
This time I've made a wedding card, with the beautiful papers from two collections:
I also used some IAR flowers, Robin's Nest's dew drops. For the topping I adhered some micro beads and gave some white gesso splatters. I also added some gauze between the layers.
On the front cover I've stamped a phrase from Song of Solomon, and framed it with a die-cut from one of the beautiful papers.
Inside, I stamped another biblical phrase concerning the happines of the wedding, and adhered a flowery heart die-cut from another Altair Art papers. On the other side I adhered a die-cut of a bride and groom.
Here're some close-ups on the details:

We would LOVE you to join us in this LOVEly challenge at Altair Art.

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:
Summer Studio - moodboard no. 40. I was inspired by the pale shabby chic colors and atmosphere, the color combo of gray and pink, and the heart/love theme.
Mixed Media Warriors - moodboard
I was inspired by the heart, flowers and the soft pink colors. I went with light mixed media thechnique - using different mediums (ink and gesso) and materials (papers, lace, gauze, microbeads and dew drops).
