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.
This is my current favorite picture about my daughter and my current favorite poem about motherhood. The layout based on Wilna’s “Lesson in grace” mini workshop and I made it for Cocoloko’s Trio Challenge. Love, P.J.
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.
