This is my first hybrid page. Nowdays I have to work whit blogs, so I thought, why not create a blog stile layout. I adore the moodboards and sketches made by fashion designers, thus I collected some ideas which I wanted to use on my page. The picture I used is one of my favorite photo about my children. I know, they are acephalous, but I think is still so expressive. I pre-print the image whit the quote and the title on it, than I painted a “color sheme” with gelatos and I put on some remnant fabric using a pin. The quote (Javier Marías: Corazón tan blanco – this book is a must!) is about the power of words, the power of silence, to listen or not to hear something. I have chosen the title “Hello” because it is a general word, everybody understands it all around the word, and it is a good start for a conversation. Finaly, above, in the right corner I added some die cut elements, wood veneer and a …
As I previously mentioned, we had our first family photography taken in January. I like this photo so much of my son because it is extremely idealistic. That is why I have chosen the title “Flawless”. I did not want to use much colors, I just piled up some NCsD chipboards, white resin frames, and bit of metallic add-ons to be more masculine finish. 😉 I put everything underneath his photo except the little fella, who sag into the picture. I am very proud of myself, because I could resist making splatters! Finally I put some light blue acrylic elements; I think they bring some life to this great whiteness. So, this is my fairy tale about a three years old, flawless little boy… Love, P.J.
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”
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.
I was so suprised when I saw that Katie from Gossamerblue chose my layout Lin to lift. Here you can see Katies version, and if you click to page you can read the description of her layout.
Do you admit or not, facebook is part of our life. Sometimes things happen faster in our virtual community, than in real life. Do you think that everything is documented what you have on facebook? I prepared this workshop as exercises in style. It won’t document one particular event, like a birthday, wedding, etc. The common ground is the source of inspiration, facebook, and because your facebook profile is you, so you can interpret this mini as a “Me” album if you like. Chapters: – front cover – see it in a different way – selfie – comments – I was tagged – quotes – just for fun – events – photo posts – back cover
