Today I like to share with you my new scrapbook layout I made with the awesome Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes Carousel collection for Pink and Paper Shop. We have a really fun summer with my kiddos and this collection is perfect for document happy moments. I started this layout by trimming down my background paper, then I stenciled the white cardstock with Heidi Swapp Dream Art Screens using light molding paste. I was sure that I will use the cute little pom – poms from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Carousel Small Embellishment Mix, as well as the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Carousel 12×12 Chipboard Stickers, so I gathered all the embellishments to decorate my layout. I rowed the pom-poms on a floss and I placed them on my scrapbook page, after I added a tons of embellishments with them I fixed the twine. Once it was done, I jumped to the bottom of my layout adding more black embellishments from Carousel Epehemera pack to create balance in the design. Finally I placed my title . I skipped the journaling this time …
I always love the challenges of Jot Magazine. First I started to draw some plants just for fun and then I thought that they can be part of my project. After completing my drawings, I added some gray drops using my gelato. Once the paper was dry, I completed the drawings whit gold rub-ons. I cut out some flowers and leaves whit my Cameo, and I placed them on top of the drawn composition. I always try to use all parts of the diecuts, so I decided to glue down the negative part too, as if they were leaves falling the tree in a storm. To embellish I also used my Cameo, cutting out two bows from gold printed vellum. Finally I added my title. I created a little composition on the right side in order to balance the page and to add the date. To have a more girly lookl, I layerd some doilies under my photo. Thank you Lauren fot the inspiration! Love, P.J.
Sorry for the English readers, this post will be in Spanish: Aquí en Hungría tenemos un juego tipo “carrera de relevos”. Uno elige dos o tres obras de la comunidad y hace un scraplift de cada layout, publica en su blog y en el facebook de la comunidad. El que primero acierta el autor original de los lifts, le toca seguir el juego. Es super divertido! Las obras que participaron en el juego, podéis ver en estos dos links: https://papierjambon.com/2016/09/04/annas-challenge/ https://papierjambon.com/2016/09/07/annas-challenge-decipherment/ Para el reto de Cocoloko he elegido este layout, obra original de Dido. Tal vez no tengo que explicar mucho el porqué. La verdad, es que me encantada todo -todo lo que hace ella. Tiene un gusto y genio increíble! Y, además, siempre crea en blanco y negro, muy pocas veces utiliza colores, que también da un toque muy especial a sus obras. Entrad a su blog y mirad las preciosidades que hace! Créeme, vale la pena! El layout de abajo es uno de mis preferidos, aunque casi todo es mi preferido si se trata …
Sometime you just receive your new kit and you have to create! That was the case with this layout inspired by Wilna.
‘I believe in the world as in a daisy, Because I see it. But I don’t think about it, Because to think is to not understand. The world wasn’t made for us to think about it (To think is to have eyes that aren’t well) But to look at it and to be in agreement.’ – Fernando Pessoa – Love, P.J.
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.
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 made this online workshop for NőiCsizma Design, in May 2015. During the workshop we used some mixed – media and layering technics, also to prepare self-made embellishments to create a mini album.
