I think we all agree that Wilna is our eternal inspiration. She was my first “international teacher” when I started scrapbooking, and time to time I feel I must return and create a layout in her style. First I made a background whit black chalkboard paint. Once the black paint was dry I added a soft pink paint layer. After that, I drew one of Wilna’s pattern whit my Silhouette sketh pen. It is very easy! You will follow the same steps as for a normal cut file, but at the end, in the ‘Cut Settings Window’ you will change from ‘cutting blade’ to ‘sketch pen’. Do not forget to load your pen before printing! Here you can find an official tutorial. The creative files I used from Wilna: BLOOM Collection and LEAVES Cut Files + Brushes. As a last step I adedd a little bit of color to freshen up my composition using Jot Magazine’s mood board as a color scheme. As a final touch I embellished my layout with Wilnas cut outs. Love, P.J.
I am proud to announce that I am in Jot Magazine again: Yuppiiieeee! Love, P.J.
After a beautiful vacation full of new experiences and inspirations, I am back to show you my last two quick and easy layouts: On the first layout I drew the title with Silhouette Sketch Pen, On the second one I made my own background stamping with Felicity Jane’s – Suse Fish – Happy Stamp. 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.
(dɪˈfaɪ əns) n. 1. a bold resistance to authority or to any opposing force. 2. a challenge, as to meet in combat. Idioms: in defiance of, despite; notwithstanding. [1250–1300; Middle English < Old French, =defi(er) to defy + -ance -ance] Random House Kernerman Webster’s College Dictionary, © 2010 K Dictionaries Ltd. Copyright 2005, 1997, 1991 by Random House, Inc. All rights reserved. I love this definition, because for me defiance is much more than a bold resistance to authority. If only it were that simple … I made two “defiance” layout for my children. Here I show you the one I cteated for my son. My daughter’s layout will be a little surpise, my international debute as a guest designer. Yuppppiiiiiieeeeee! I’m so Excited! This layout was inspired by Lauren’s mood board. Jot Magazine. Love, P.J.
If someone asked my children, what they favourite activity is apart from playing, they would definitely say it is dancing. Black chalk paint, Felicity Jane Studio papers, flairs and some Pink Paislee buttons. The idea of papercut initial I borrowed from Suzy Taylor. You should go and check her beautiful handmade letters. Love, P.J.
This is my all time favorite photo about Tamara and me, and at the moment this is my all time favorite layout about us. I used Felicity Jane Kits. Y como soy una loca por el scrap, participo en el reto mensual de Cocoloko.es. 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.
