A good morning! A sunny one, but we’ve created a rainy one for you:)!
Today we’ve created a triangle canvas using Prima Marketing products. We were inspired by two mood boards for this one.
Everything pink and glitter was in our mind and we love the end result. From the Prima Board we stuck to the colour swatch (pinks and peaches), the flowers, and textures. From the Mixed Media & Art board, we picked the glitter, the colour swatch (pink, black and gold) and flowers.

Today we’ve created a layout using the sketch at DCWV February Stack-a-holic challenge and the theme- Together and Ampersand from More Than Words February challenge.
We used the Royal Gypsy paper stack from DCWV for this layout. This was a fun layout. TO begin with we rotated the sketch to the left. We cut the feathers on the paper to make them pop up and look real, did some layering, fussy cut elements from the same paper pack, added some dimensional paint with a stencil and rolled up paper for a fun dimension.

Feb 15th challenge at Colorful creations is all about getting inspired by a word and using it in our project.
We were inspired by love, layers and joy. We incorporated love in the form of heart, layers with layers in our project and joy as the word itself. We created a journal page.
Hope you’re inspired :)! Looking forward to your creations!

Today we’re here to inspire you with a shabby chic layout and with Valentine’s day nearing, we though love would be a fabulous theme to work with!
Here’s the layout that we created for this one!
For this layout we chose one 12×12 sheet with a pastel pink and floral elements as our base. We picked various sizes of pattern papers for our layering. If you notice this layout is a three picture layout- one big and two small. We assembled our papers and photos and made rough marks once happy with the arrangement. We then made cut marks on the top right and bottom left of the page, tore it and folded it like draping it. We distressed all our edges with distress inks. In the peep through places, we added another piece of paper underneath. We mounted our base piece onto white cardstock. We distressed the edges of all our paper pieces and photos for the vintage look. We then chose our chipboard pieces, painted them gold and added them onto our layout, some above and some peeking from beneath a picture. We added some texture using modelling paste and a stencil around our arrangement. Once content we adhered everything down in place. We then adhered a few flowers going with our layout.
Its pastel, its subtle, its romantic and its love!
Since we were making a pocket page, we decided to create one on the theme of Family and particularly memories of a vacation long time ago.
Here is our card and pocket page.
We created this for the current sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme, have a look and participate :)!
