I wanted to make a very simple, very clean layout: Love, P.J.
Wohoooooo soy destacada en el blog de Cocoloko.es con mi scraplift de Dido!
‘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.
In April Jot Magazine made an incredible inspiring mood board again. I love all the colors and details! Thank you Loredana! As usual I’ve taken inspiration from the colour palette. I layered my photo with Felicity Jane papers and with the Silhouette backround. I added a lot of embellishments on the right side of the photo, and some left overs on the left side of my layout in order to balance it. I know, I know… my layout turned out much more bucolic than the beautiful modern design on the mood board. But what can I do? Nowadays I can’t resist using orchids, petals and leaves. Siendo una loca con esta página participo en el reto de mayo de Cocoloko.es. Love, P.J.
Whith my friend Tamara, we organize a scrap club here in Budapest. It’s a friendly gathering of scrapbook fun ladies twice a month. In every occasion we realize a particular project or techniques offered and instructed by us. In March, we decided to play whit twine. I prepared two inspirations for this occasion. On the first layout I cut out the word six ( ‘hat’ in Hungarian) whit my Cameo. After pinning holes along the edges, I embroidered with white twine to get this tone on tone effect. Con esta página participo en el reto de KIMIDORI. On the other project I wanted to create a little string art heart. In order to do this, and to use my stash, I gathered all the rest brads I had. I created a rainbow color heart stabbing the brads into the paper. I started the thread on the big brad and before coiling it around the next brad, I always returned to the big one. But you can do it without a particular plan, to get a nice messy …
You may think this will be a “kill the kit” post, but in fact, I’ve just received my new kit from Felicity Jane. As I got my package, I was like a child in a candy store, I wanted to use all at the same time. 😀 When I read the Inspired by… post of Danielle and I saw the sneek peak image of March kit, I decided to use the sneek image design as a sketch:Nowadays I obsessively leave messages for my children, this time I chose a quote from Susana Fortes about being brother and sister . Love, P.J.
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.
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.

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.
