#Today vol. 2

This is my second layout called “Today”, I had made one of my daughter and this one is dedicated to my son. Nothing special, I just captured one moment, Igor in February 2016. When I saw this mood board on Jot Magazine’s blog, I knew I had to try to do something whit these stunning colors. The picture that most inspired me was the ‘ hangig garden’  with those lime leaves and the lilacs. I tried to repeat both the flourishes and the colors on my page. I painted some petals with watercolor and I cut out the flourishes, than I layered them with Dear Lizzy rub-ons. To be a bit more boyish, I also added a good amount of black (Dear Lizzy, Crate Paper). Finaly I hid some message to my son on a tag. It was fun! Thank you Anna for the beautiful mood board! Purple is a  really difficult color for me, but I think the layout was turd out just as I imagined. Love, P.J.

Home made art

As spring approaches so fast, I decided to change a bit my favorite place in the house, my scrapbook room. We are always so very creative! We use all the things in a different way that it should be. Today, I’ll  choose the classic way, I’m going to use the resin frames as a frame. I believe it may have occurred to you too, when you are practicing or experimenting with watercolor or other mediums, however, the outcome does not finish as your originally planned, though you feel pity to throw out the sheet. So, do not do it! Just use a part of it! Put a frame on the paper, and try to find the perfect cut out. When you found it, cut out the detail and put it into a frame. I am very happy with my recycled sheet. Love, P.J.

Sis & Bro

Today I am sharing my first layout as a Guest Designer for  NőiCsizma Design. At the end of January, we had our first family photography taken, this picture was taken during the photoshoot as well, and I love the style of the photographer, “the world of Kata”, as she captured perfectly the relationship of the brother and sister, and the face of Lena shows the love towards her younger brother too. I did not want to overdecorate the page, thus, I decided to only use some chipboard elements, some flowers in colours to match the colourscheme of the photo. I have to admit tough, I spent a lot of time to find the suitable place for the title in the picture, however, at the end, the final version is the closest to my original idea”

Scrapbook room update

After an unfortunately flood from the neighbors   – I had to thrown out the furniture too, – I decided to rearrange my scraproom. It’s very small, only 1 square meter. I was crazy about polka dot wall for ages. First I painted the wall in white, than I cut out a polka dot stencil with my Silhouette. Adjusting the stencil on the wall, I made my dots with archival ink. For this time I decided to have a black and white – blue color palette for the room, so I assembled the furniture and I bought some light blue boxes as additional storage. I have to confess, I’m very happy whit my new scraproom.
