Dream With All Your Strength

Hi, everyone!
So here's the thing - I just love my big projects (like the one I showed you in my previous post) that absorb me thoroughly and take days and days to work on. They are my fuel and even though it's often hard to organize my life to make enough time for them, they are something that I'm absolutely passionate about.
However... I think it's nice to mix and change my ways of expression and from time to time create something quick and easy - be it a simple spontanous journal spread or cute cards for my friends.
Then here I am - presenting these little cuties. ;)



There is no big theory behind this little one. ;) Just pure pleasure of playing around with some of my favorite materials, enjoying different combinations of colors and textures.

It's quite relaxing I must admit - some fantastic Sizzix dies, coloring with Archival inks and putting on some glossy accents to add the final touch.

Here's a list of some of the supplies I played with on this card:


On the same note I created a tag:


What I did was I glued cut out pieces of paper (Sizzix dies again!) to create a structural background, then came a layer of gesso and some subtle coloring with Color Bloom sprays and Archival inks. And again - a touch of liquid pearls here and there. Below you can see the texture I ended up with.


Curious about the supplies? ;) Here they are:


The cut out text on the tag in Polish means: "Keep dreaming with all your strength."
And this is my wish for each and every one of you!
Hugs...

Truly gorgeous, I love the soft and vibrant edges of colour on the tags, especially with the white leaves. The card is awesome, such depthof colour and the layered effect, amazing :-) Kezzy xxx
