Its the little Memories that will last a lifetime - Martina Stoycheva

Hello everyone!

Time for my second inspiration this month.

 I created a layout with this absolutely gorgeous Heart frame set.

And did I had a blast creating it? Absolutelly!!

This one includes my precious little daughter and it will be framed and put on a wall. 

I managed to film the process and as always my video is longer than 10 minutes,
 but it`s detailed and shows all the steps. 
Sometimes when you play with chipboards, you find different ways to paint it, distress it or make it look shabby and vintage. I played a lot this time. It was so much fun!

Here`s my video tutorial:

And some close up photos:

Be Still and Listen - Juliya Tirskaya - Altered canvas art

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm with a new project- Mixed Media Canvas.

For my project, I used wonderful stencils to create the background. It's Threaded Beads Stensil and Words of Wisdom Stensil

I painted chipboard using Rust Paste and Acrylic. Added textures, colors, toned. And covered it with powder for embossing.

I used Dusty Attic products:

Crazy, Silly Fun - Nicole Doiron - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello everyone!

This is Nicole and I have a very bright and fun layout for you today!

My layout was inspired by the similarly bright April mood board from The Dusty Attic.

With this sunny colour palette as well as the beautiful image in mind, I found a photo of my nieces taken during their visit to Florida in 2005 which I found matched the theme and colours quite well.

I created the title Crazy Silly Fun using the Word Packs #13 and #16.

I created a geometric tile design on my page by tucking 3 of the Elegant Frames behind the photo. I colored them with 2 different shades of purple markers and then sprayed on a little white mist.

I used the same markers on the Page Pebbles and the title as well.

I used white embossing powder on the Machine Parts

to make them pop against the colorful background and paper layering.

Finally, here is a close up of my 2 favorite girls being adorable and... silly!

Here are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used on my page.

Make a Wish - Kerstin Filou

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin here with a new inspiration for you.
I was inspired to create a masculine vintage layout in grunge style with a touch of steampunk.

Besides the amazing industrial chipboards I also used this great Distress
Grid Stencil

as background motif behind the main cluster in the centre of this
 I use this stencil very often because it's always very suitable
for masculine scrabooking layouts and mixed media projects too.

some close up's


was painted with some Fluid Acrylics (DecoArt Media)
 'Carbon Black' 'Burnt Umber' 'Burnt Sienna'


in the still wet colour I sprinkled at some places silver deco sand with a slight mica effect 

and  Industrial
I used an embossing powder with special effect 'Hammerd


I always love to use the leftovers as picture frames too 
here remnants from Industrial
Border #1

Happy crafting creative friends!
