Es gibt wieder eine neue Challlenge bei challenge up your life! Das Thema diesmal: Aquarell

There is a new challenge at challenge up your life! The assignment: watercolor

Wie ihr ja bereits wisst, liebe ich es, mit Sketchen zu arbeiten! Diesmal habe ich mir den Sketch von let's get sketchy ausgesucht: 

you know: I love using sketches! And for this time, I chose a sketch from
let's get sketchy:

Für mein Layout habe ich mit meiner Cameo einige Rauten aus weißem Cardstock ausgeschnitten und mit SF-Stamps bestempelt. Natürlich mit den Hibiskusblüten aus den Sets: "endlich Urlaub", "Hibiskus" und "Genieße den Augenblick" und Blüten aus dem Set "es gibt viele Dinge". Sehr begeistert war ich, wie die Punkte aus dem Set "Wirbelwind" raus kommen, wenn man sie nicht ganz so ordentlich mit Distress oxides stempelt und dann mit Wasser besprüht. die Blüten habe ich mit Aquarellfarbe coloriert. Auf meinen Hintergrund habe ich noch etwas Farbe gekleckst und dann die Rauten aufgeklebt. 

I cut out some rhombs with my cameo, to create the background of my layout. Then I stamped with sf-stamps onto them. I used stamps from these stamp-sets:  "endlich Urlaub", "Hibiskus", "Genieße den Augenblick", "es gibt viele Dinge" and "Wirbelwind". I colored the flowers with watercolor and sprayed some color mists onto my white background cardstock.

Danke für deinen Besuch!

It's time for a new challenge! Today, I used the challenge of CSI - color stories inspiration. And I have to say: the colors really challenged me! Normally, I  don't like yellow. But the light yellow and the grey was ok together... 😉

And I used the sketch of Sketches in Thyme:

I used a circle cutfile a base of my layout and cut it out of grey cardstock. Then I backed it with yellow and dark grey patterned paper.
Behind the cut file I splattered some yellow color spray and silver texture paste.

 The title is cut out with my cameo.

In addition to the sketch, you have to use a songtitle. I chose the title of a song of a cartoon, my girls love watching on tv.

endlich Urlaub

The last paper-challenge at Lasting Memories is online! 
Today: use only 6x6 papers

First, this really challenges me. I had no idea, how to create a layout with 6x6 papers. But then I chose some nice woodgrain papers from a 6x6 paper pad I bougt to back my photos or cut files. And I have to admit, that I like how it turned out!

Show us your ideas with using 6x6 papers!

Thanks for stopping by!



Hello friends! Today we have a moodboard-challenge at the studio challenges for you!
Have a look at all the lovely colors! Aren't they inspiring? 

And you know, I love sketches and for this layout I used the sketch from sketches in Thyme:

I used white cardstock as my background. Then I cut out a sun with my cameo using a yellow patterned paper. Behind the sun, I splattered lots of turquoise and salmon colors with the packaging technique.

The title is cut out with my cameo and traced with a black fineliner.
One of the sun stamps was not dry already.... :-(

I stamped these amazing hibiscus with black versafine, colored them with polychromos and fussy cut them out.

Now, let us see, what you can create with this moodboard!!

Hello scrappy friends! Today, I created a layout for the actual challenge of more than words:

And for more inspiration, I used the sketch from sketches in Thyme:

I used lots of decoration from my stash (insta-frame, Flowers, leaves, butterfly, bird...) to create an eye catcher in the middle of my layout.

no rain no rainbows

Hallo zusammen! Schon wieder sind zwei Wochen vorbei und eine neue Challenge bei challenge up your life steht vor der Tür! 
Das Thema heute: Regenbogen oder Einhörner 

Hello everybody! A new challenge at challenge up your life is round the corner! 
The assignment today: rainbow or unicorn 

Als Hintergrund habe ich dunkelgraunen Cardstock verwendet, der passte so gut zum Regenhimmel. Darauf habe ich etwas weißes Gesso verteilt und mit blauem und gelbem Farbspray Akzente gesetzt. Die Datei des Schriftzugs mit Regenbogen und Wolken ist von Just Nick. Den Regenbogen habe ich mit Twinklings angemalt. Noch ein paar Sticker und etwas Washi-Tape - fertig. 

 I used dark grey cardstock as my background. It fits perfectly with the rainy sky. I smudged lots of gesso onto my background and did some color work with blue and yellow ink spray. The title cutfile with the rainbow and the clouds is from just nick. Finally some stickers and washi tape.

Den Titel habe ich mit Abstandspads unterlegt, um einen 3-D-Effect zu erzielen.

I put some foam adhesives under the title to create more dimension.

Noch ein Detailbild:

Heute zeige ich euch mein neuestes Layout for das Design Team von Lasting Memories. Diesen Monat geht es um Papiertechniken. 
Diese Woche: Gestalte dein eigenes Hintergrundpapier! 
Today I'm sharing my newest layout for the Lasting Memories design team. The focus this month is on papers. This week the assignment is: create your own background paper!

Hierfür habe ich die Worte der SF-Stamps Set "die Seele baumeln lassen"auf mein Hintergrundpapier gestempelt. Auf einen Streifen dunkelbraunen Cardstock habe ich noch einige Blumen aus dem Set "die besten Wünsche" gestempelt. 

I stamped words from the sf-stamps collection "die Seele baumeln lassen" onto my background paper and some flowers on a piece of dark brown cardstock to use it as decoration.

Die Muschel-Stempel habe ich mit brauner Versafine-Stempelfarbe auf Kraftpapier gestempelt und mit Polychormos coloriert. Ich bin total begeistert, wie toll das auf dem Kraftpapier raus kommt!

I stamped the seashell stamps with brown versafine and colored them with polychromos pencils.  I really love how it turned out on the kraft paper!

Die große Blume aus dem "die besten Wünsche" -Set habe ich mit hellbraun gestempelt und dann mit Stickles nachgefahren, damit es schön glitzert. 

A close up to the big flower that I stamped and then traced with stickles to give it a more glittery effect.
