I picked some of my favorites projects I created in 2014 and just wanted to show to you, with no particular reason, just because they are my favorite ones and had much fun creating them :)


Now it's time to say goodbye and thank you to the two amazing Design Teams Scrap Africa and Frosted Designs - it was really a pleasure to work with such talented ladies...

Happy Life mini canvas

Hello everyone!
Today's project is for our challenge at Frosted Designs:
"All In The Family" Your project (layout, card, art journal page, mixed media piece, etc) must focus on family and include a quote about family somewhere on it.

I created a mini canvas with the 7DotsStudio Messy Head collection and it's already hanged on the wall among some family photos.
I used a big metal heart in the middle of the composition and decorated it with some flowers, buttons, chipboard pieces, a small handmade (with mold) frame, lace, sequins and Messy Head stickers.
I really like this collection, the blue and pink color combination is one of my favorites!
Other media: water colors, mists, gesso.
Here are some details...


With my project I'm entering the Words&Paintery challenge:

I used the color pallet as well as sequins and glimmer mist to add shimmer and shine to my project.

That's all for today,
'see' you soon :)

Happy Days

Hello everyone!
This is my page for our challenge at Scrap Africa:
Create a project - layout, card or altered project that depicts what Christmas Time/December Holidays/Hannukah is like in your home, town or country...

Here are some details...


With this page I'm entering to the following challenges:

As you can see my page is made in rustic style: I tried to avoid bright colors and contrasts and use only natural and muted colors (shades of wood).  So, I chose a beautiful paper with wood pattern, I painted the chipboard pieces with 'vintage photo' distress stain and used a beige shade acrylic paint, crackle paint and white gesso with some branches stamps to create the background. I also used lace, twine, my grandma's vintage buttons, some flowers, a page from an old book and a cinnamon stick which I decorated with two small bells and a tiny pine cone.
The title and the journaling I wrote is: "Happy Days: During Christmas period I really enjoy making small gifts for my family and friends. Baking cookies and pretzels is my favorite thing to do".

I used the sketch from ScrapKopilka...

That's all for today,
have a beautiful crafty week everybody!

winter lantern

Hello everyone!
 Today I'm hosting the Frosted Designs blog with a layout about winter and what I love about it: lanterns! I love the contrast between their cozy feeling and winter's cold. It's like magic!
Here is my page:

I choose a sheet with chevron pattern to use and blue shades of gelatos and watercolors to create the background. To decorate my page I used some flowers, buttons, lace, thread, sequins and snowflakes stickers.
Here are some details: 

For my page I got inspired by this beautiful snowy but also warm and cozy moodboard from Scrap Around the World December's challenge:

There are so many ways this moodboard can be used for inspiration. I wanted to take advantage of every detail of this board and use them on my composition: the blue/red/white/brown shades, chevrons (the paper pattern and a stencil I used), doilies, snowflakes, branches, even a small light bulb, all these stuff are on my page!

I also used this sketch from the Creative Club "Simple pleasures" 

Thank you very much for stopping by today,
have a beautiful rest of the day!

Me and myself

Hello dear friends!
Today is the 1st of the month and we have a new sketch challenge at Scrap Africa!
Here is my page...

...and this is our beautiful sketch Denise created:
My page is about spending some time alone and how important is that to me. I really love staying at home, relaxing and do what I like (like scrapbooking:), or do nothing - some times the only thing I want is a cup of hot chocolate and warm socks, don't you think?
In order to give a warm and cozy look to my page I used a paper and some stickers from the 7Dots Studio Domestic Goddess collection (my favorite collection ever!), a lot of flowers and buttons and a ribbon with pon pons :)

With page I'm entering the cozy challenge at 7Dots Studio...

...and the Art Piaskownica challenge about:

That's all for today,
'see' you soon!
