It's good to be challenged (from time to time) - Prima and Mixed Media Place

From time to time I've got the pleasure to participate in challenges organized on my favorite craft blogs. As most of us I enjoy a bit of inspiration and a dose of challenge - it gives me a good kick to start my project:) Maybe you will join the fun and play with us too?
First of all - here is a layout I made for Prima Build-A-Page challenge this month. The Sketch was lovely... and I had to make it "my way, I simply couldn't help myself!

Gypsy Stylin' - Prima BAP 

This photo of me and Rae is a keepsake from my Tour in Australia and NZ, we had a lot of fun there including dressing up as Gypsies and ehm... horses ;) Please don't ask why:)

Project is based on Prima Sunrise-Sunset paper collection, Resist Canvas flowers and leaves, Prima paper flowers and vines, Junkyard Findings and my Mechanicals.
Color is made with sprays - I used Primary Elements Pigments from Luminarte. Most of the products you will find here, in Mixed Media Place store :)

The second project is my Mixed-Media Journal cover - and I made this as a part of the challenge on Mixed Media Place Blog. This month we focus on acrylic paint - and my choice were Silks from Luminarte - beautiful, shimmery, vibrant paints I use all the time in my projects!

Finn's journal - cover

The cover of my journal was of course decorated with one of my stencils, some flowers and Mechanicals - my metal embellishments from Prima. The colors I used are from Emperor color set and Empress color set.

You will find more details about both challenges on the blogs I linked above - I hope you will join the fun and play with us! Have a great creative day!

Sizzix Friday: Some more memories from the Netherlands!

Again, I'm coming back to the great event in the Netherlands last week. This time I'm sharing with you a layout that was created during "space, Media, Dimension" class and of course it is based on 7 Dots Studio papers by me (Dreamer Collection), Prima Mechanicals and Resist Canvas and Sizzix dies of course. All the color comes from Luminarte Primary Elements Pigments and  3D Squares and E-Z Runner® tapes are by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

OK, so to share more : we started more-less like this...

...and finished with something more-less like this:

Memory - 7 DS, Sizzix and Prima

I'm posting more step-by-step photos, photo relation and more details about Sizzix dies I used during the class here, on blog! Have a look!
Soon I'll be back with more projects for you - but now I have to run to finish my reorganizing, re-packing... Brasil is coming soon! Woo hoo!

2 faces of Sizzix - I'm back from The Netherlands!

Hi again! I just got home from my last trip - wonderful classes in the Netherlands :) Although coming home took me about 9h longer than I expected the experience was just wonderful. Lucky me:)
I had the pleasure to teach 3 days of classes - and let me tell you the students were simply amazing: talented, sweet, kind-hearted, supportive and crazy creative. Let me show you a bit of the photos... hmmm... looks like photo-relation from one of the classes, "Steampunk  Love" is now posted on blog, here!

And here is what else you can find there: how about one of the new layouts, which I made during this class? It is all based of course on 7 DS and Prima products, including my collection, "Sunrise-Sunset" and my beloved "Mechanicals" - all colored with Luminarte Pigments and Silks.

Steampunk Love - 7DS, Prima, Sizzix

Or maybe something lighter, inspired by new 7 Dots Studio collection by Anai - "Queen's Heart"?

Hard Day - Sizzix and 7 DS

I hope to see you on Sizzix blog, more details and photos are waiting for you!
See you soon!

Happy Mail - Collage for Ranger Designer Challenge 2013

I was packing and kitting like crazy today - all for the classes in Netherlands this weekend - but I had a look in my mailbox while walking the dog... and there it was!!!

My copy of Somerset Studio (May 2013) - with my collage project I've made for Ranger Designer Challenge for Winter CHA 2013. As you can see - we were all inspired by monochromatic palette: w all got just one color from Dylusion Sprays to use. Here is my interpretation...and I feel lucky I got yellow ;)
