endlich Urlaub

The last paper-challenge at Lasting Memories is online! 
Today: use only 6x6 papers

First, this really challenges me. I had no idea, how to create a layout with 6x6 papers. But then I chose some nice woodgrain papers from a 6x6 paper pad I bougt to back my photos or cut files. And I have to admit, that I like how it turned out!

Show us your ideas with using 6x6 papers!

Thanks for stopping by!



Hello friends! Today we have a moodboard-challenge at the studio challenges for you!
Have a look at all the lovely colors! Aren't they inspiring? 

And you know, I love sketches and for this layout I used the sketch from sketches in Thyme:

I used white cardstock as my background. Then I cut out a sun with my cameo using a yellow patterned paper. Behind the sun, I splattered lots of turquoise and salmon colors with the packaging technique.

The title is cut out with my cameo and traced with a black fineliner.
One of the sun stamps was not dry already.... :-(

I stamped these amazing hibiscus with black versafine, colored them with polychromos and fussy cut them out.

Now, let us see, what you can create with this moodboard!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ein Gewitter im Anzug -

One more layout for some more challenges! I really love them!!

First, I decided to use the sketch from Sketch N Scrap:

I love using clouds, so I wanted to solve the challenge of Scrap our Stash:

And one of the challenges of Paper Issues this month is: painting:

I used white cardstock as my background and painted some light blue nuvo embellishment mousse and dark blue acrylic paint onto it. For the top and the bottom of the layout I used stripes of different blue papers and machine stitched over it. The clouds are cutfiles from the cut shoppe.

Hello scrappy friends! Today, I created a layout for the actual challenge of more than words:

And for more inspiration, I used the sketch from sketches in Thyme:

I used white cardstock as my background and a light green patterned paper that I cut into a big circle. I splattered some green colors onto my layout and stamped onto it.

I used lots of decoration from my stash (insta-frame, Flowers, leaves, butterfly, bird...) to create an eye catcher in the middle of my layout.

Thanks for your visit!

no rain no rainbows

Hallo zusammen! Schon wieder sind zwei Wochen vorbei und eine neue Challenge bei challenge up your life steht vor der Tür! 
Das Thema heute: Regenbogen oder Einhörner 

Hello everybody! A new challenge at challenge up your life is round the corner! 
The assignment today: rainbow or unicorn 

Als Hintergrund habe ich dunkelgraunen Cardstock verwendet, der passte so gut zum Regenhimmel. Darauf habe ich etwas weißes Gesso verteilt und mit blauem und gelbem Farbspray Akzente gesetzt. Die Datei des Schriftzugs mit Regenbogen und Wolken ist von Just Nick. Den Regenbogen habe ich mit Twinklings angemalt. Noch ein paar Sticker und etwas Washi-Tape - fertig. 

 I used dark grey cardstock as my background. It fits perfectly with the rainy sky. I smudged lots of gesso onto my background and did some color work with blue and yellow ink spray. The title cutfile with the rainbow and the clouds is from just nick. Finally some stickers and washi tape.

Den Titel habe ich mit Abstandspads unterlegt, um einen 3-D-Effect zu erzielen.

I put some foam adhesives under the title to create more dimension.

Noch ein Detailbild:

Hello scrappy friends! Today I'm sharing a layout with a picture from our last holiday at Lago di Garda.

I was inspired by the sketch of Sketches in Thyme:

And I want to join in the challenge of paper issues with the assignment: layers

For my layout, I used the pretty paper of maja design. I really love all the blues!  
I did some stitching on the arrow cut file from the silhouette design store. The flower is made with print and cut and my cameo.

A close up to some of the details:
