'Spider Princess' page

Hello everyone,

One quick post today; last minute submission to two challenges;

Firstly, I found my inspiration in  this great mood board by Scrap Around The World:

Which is all about fashion, I loved the theme of the mood board as well as those blue colours,

Then, I used this sketch:

from the Berry71bleu August challenge.

And my page is:

My beautiful daughter featuring her spider costume I made last Halloween for her. 

For this page she stitched the spider-web by hand then I started splattering, gessoing and spritzing the page. I used:

  • Papers - 7Dots Studio
  • Mists ; Dylusion and Tattered Angels,
  • Inks Prima for edging and Ranger Archival for stamping
  • Stamps : Ranger by Tim Holtz
  •  Flower is by Prima
  • Spiders are made using Tim Holtz die, groungeboard and black Flocking powder
  • Wire and stickers used for title by Prima
And that is all, I not sure of the black pearls, they might be Trimcraft

Hope you have a nice day and thank you very much for your visit.

Prima BAP August Challenge

Hi again,

I know it is very unusual for me to post twice in a day, but I would like to submit one more page to one more great challenge and this time it is Prima BAP, you can see everything about it here. I so loved the sketch by Jennifer

that I decided to break my stash diet and get some flowers and bits and bobs that would go with Prima Sea-Shore papers that I already got.

There is my entry:

One of the rules for Prima challenges is to use Prima products which I love and my Prima products are:
  • Sea-Shore papers, flowers (used flowers from two packs), resins, brads, clips
  • Wire
  • Stencil
  •  pebbles
  • chalk edger 

The other products are: modeling paste by Golden, mist Coffee Shops by Tattered Angels,  cheese cloth and embroidery thread, chipboard by: Dusty Attic (fishing net) and Fab Scraps (Perfect), Distress Paint, Gesso and Perfect Perls by Ranger

Some close-ups:

Thank you for your visit and have a lovely day. xx

'Man in my life' - Once Upon a Sketch Challenge

Hello lovely people

August is nearly over, I cannot believe!!! I created page to play along Once Upon A Sketch Challenge. The journalling theme for August is 'Men in your life' and I decided to dedicate my page to my husband;

The page is based on this awesome sketch by Nadia:

I used Basic Grey Serenade paper pack and alphabet stickers, some Faber Castell Gelatos, Prima mechanicals and buttons and my Spellbinder die- 'Create a Rose', not sure of origin of chipboard and twine, I got those while ago. Mechanicals are coloured with Silks.  

I hope you like the page, here is one close-up:

Have a nice day xxx

Finnabair's Workshop

Hello everyone,

I have been privileged to attend Finnabair's workshop back in April, and finally I got around taking a photos of things I made.

First class was a 12x12 page, excellent techniques for using up all those scraps of papers and my page is:

 The page is made using plain card, 7DotsStudio papers, Prima stencils, lots of Prima embellishments, Prima mists and some die-cuts.

On the second class we were making a canvas and this is my result:

And that was not all. I thought the horse would be nice gift for my older daughter and the little-one had a broken heart, so I had to take it back from DD1 until I made one more for Sara. This one is with my limited supply at home:

The main supply is: Prima Mechanicals, Primary elements and Silks by Luminart, black gesso by Ranger, Heavy Gel.

If you ever had a chance to attend Finn's workshop I would suggest do it even if you are not into messy crafting you will love it, some other people did it and they loved it. She is magical; you can see more of her art here

Thank you very much for your visit. I have few more pages to share for few challenges, so hopefully I will be back tomorrow.
