Finally I had time to upload this blogspot. I don`t want to go into details how I made it because I think the pictures speak for themselves. Today’s all about visual inspiration, just a very short introduction: The backgroung I made with acrylic paint and after I used Whipped Spackle by Faber Castell through the Nőicsizma Design stencil. Once the Whipped Spackle was dry, I added Wilna´s cute little bears and some embellishments from the Heart Day Collection. And from now on, it´s truly only visual inspiration comes: Love, P.J.
Now it is a family tradition to visit the wildlife park at the advent of Autumn. Although I used Wilna´s beautiful bucolic frames, I wanted to keep the album very simple. First I added a bit of acrylic paint as a background of the frames and I finished off by using the chipboard embellishments of Crate Paper´s Gather and Cool Kid collections. On the vellum pages I used Pebbles´ printed chipborad leaves. It was very difficult to stop and not to paint more, or add more embellishments, but I think I managed it. I really love how my mini turned out, you can scroll through the entire album at the and of the process video: Love, P.J.
I read somewhere that Vincent Van Gogh used to eat yellow paint because he thought that it would get the happiness inside of him. Although I adore the maestro, I hope my children will never need to do this. This layout I made for Jot Magazine’s July Mood Board Challenge: Thank you Kim for the inspiration! Special thanks to SOADYART for the lemons. Love, P.J.
I’m so happy and proud to be the winner of Cocoloko’s May challenge. Look at all these goodies I’ve received! And more! I´m the guest designer in July. As I mentioned before I made two “defiance” layout for my children. This second one I created to my daughter in neon style , with bright, vivid colors for the July challenge of Cocoloko. I used Felicity Jane Kits and Wilna’s cutfile, as always. Something else is coming soon….;-) Love, P.J.
This mood board was a real challenge for me! When I saw it I thought that was so beautiful, but what would I do with these colors??? What most inspired me was the big image with the floppy disks. I haven’t got any products in these colours, so I decided to make a painted background based on the mood board. First I put everything on the painted background, but it seemed too much for me. Than I cut my background in half, I cut out some speech bubbles and I added a few cristals, splatters and enamels.– Thanks Sharmaine for the challenge! Love, P.J.
Sometime you just receive your new kit and you have to create! That was the case with this layout inspired by Wilna.
My new canvas inpired by Nicole Pletts. I’m not entirely satisfied how it turned out, but this is a step forward, isn’t it?
It seems that this year will be the “first time in my life” year for me. Since that is so, I made my first mixed media canvas. As I don’t have practice in painting, I had seen loads of tutorials before I started to work. Here you can find some examples in case we are in the same boat ;-): Cuckoo4 Design Fall for DIY Dans le lakehouse I followed Julia’s instructions from Cuckoo4Design, but I used more colors than she had recommended, and I mixed the paint with other mediums like impasto paste, in order to get a rougher surface. So, this is my canvas: Carnival.
I like painting, most of the times I find it difficult when I can’t paint what is in my mind, and having no time to practice what I envisaged. One night, I was messing with the paint and I put one colour on another and put them together onto a paper with a cardboard. At certain points the colours come together but not everywhere, what I would like is the acrylic paint not to absorb as much as it does at the moment and also texturised the paper. Furthermore, in order to create more layers, I have added embossing powder. At first sight, I thought that this is a new creation of mine, however, later on I have come to the conclusion that this isn’t a complete piece of work, so I decided to convert it in a scrapbook layout. I have chosen one of the lyrics of Silje Nergaard as the theme of the picture.
