Back to School with Solange!

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Hello, Solange here!
Today is the first day of school in France, and I thought it would be a good idea to make a new set for my desk, because I use so many notebooks!

Here, the weather is still nice, but you can already feel some changes... Fall is not that far! And I wanted a color palette with this feeling, between summer anf fall.
When I found this collection by Basic Grey, I was very happy, and I knew that I wanted to highlight the subtle touches of purple... So I decided to use some hearts stamps by Elle's Studio with purple ink.


Embellishing these notebooks was really easy, because I simply stuck patterned paper on it, without bothering about the binder: I added some ribbon along it and that's all!

I also made a sticky notes holder:


To create an harmony between all the elements, I used the same yellow twine, the same heart stamp and the same folded music heart.


I embellished the bigger notebook with an alphabet cut from my favorite patterns of the collection, and I outlined each letter (with a black pen first, then with a white pen).


This folded music heart is really easy to make: first I stamped a music pattern on thin white paper (using a KaiserCraft stamp). Then I cut 3 hearts. Finally, I layered them and I stitched them on the middle.

 
You could also use a text stamp, cut butterflies... The sky the limit!

Life Documented with Connie!

Hi everyone. It's me Connie and I am hosting the blog today.  I created a page with a picture of my Daughter and her Boyfriend in their Prom attire.  I had ordered about 200 photo's online and they did not arrive.  I was getting ready to print a couple at home and place another order at the store when this box arrived. A gentleman had my photo's in with his order and when he looked at them he knew they would be missed and he mailed them to me.  I am very grateful and lucky.

Here is the page
I mixed the Summer's end and the Enchanted kits.


Here is a close up
I made rolled roses with the pattern papers


I added a sticker for the title


I cut the doily in the kit in half and added flowers from the End of Summer kit.

Mixed Media Canvas with Channa!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Good morning all, 

Channa here, and today i am sharing a mixed media canvas for you. 
I was ready to play around and get messy and see below how it turned out:


I used one sheet of paper of the 7 dots, Cold country collection pack. Together with some embellishments, such as flowers, chipboards & stamps from my own stash i created this canvas. 
Normally i always start a project with an idea in my mind but this one was completely free style. 



Thats the nice part of mixed media, just use whatever you can find on your desk and start playing around. 
I made several layers starting from paint, paper, gesso, modeling paste, sprays etc...



Thank you for passing by and have a great day!
