New Design Team

Hello everyone,

We are so thrilled to be a part of the Day Dreamer Challenges Design team.

We used the Dahlia Bud Half Open image for our journal page.

July Challenge

We used Dina Wakley Paints- and a Color Combo suggested by her for this month’s Facebook challenge- Magenta, Lemon and Lime. Loved it!



Quick Cards

In today’s tutorial, we will be sharing tips on creating quick cards using elements for a paper collection.

For our first card, we’ve used the Papericious Indie Chic Collection. We were inspired by the Papericious Tic Tac Toe Challenge (Chipboard, Pattern Paper, Lace & Button, Flower, Lace).

July 15

We were waiting to use the latest Papericious Indie Chic Collection and it seemed to fit perfectly with this theme. We were inspired by the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Papericious (Chipboard, Pattern Paper and Lace),  the Explore & Arrows Theme at More Than Words and the DT call and  Mood Board Summer Chill at Mixed Media Warriors (The colours, the flowers, the sky and sea in the form of the textures in the paper).

We began by adding texture to our background with a stencil and dimension paste.We then spritzed some Papericious Baby Pink Spritz. We stencilled some arrows with distress inks.  We cut out some arrows from a sheet in the paper pack. We layered pieces of paper, and cut out small marbelised squares/rectangles from a sheet for layering. We coloured the lace as well with the Baby Pink Spritz. We fussy cut elements from the die cut sheet in the paper pack for our layering. We die cut a flourish element to match. We used the dream catcher chipboard which coordinated with the collection and coloured with shimmer paints. We die cut the word explore and adhered all the elements to complete the layout.

Nature and Walks

Today we’ve created a layout inspired by various mood boards and challenges.This sure will urge you to connect with nature.

We were inspired by the bright Color Board at Lindy’s Stamp Gang; mood board at Mixed Media Place; Use of natural materials at Mixed Media World; Daily Routines at 7 Dots Studio

We’ve used a lot of natural materials, created a garden scene, focusing on morning walks and connecting with nature.

When we were starting this layout, our copy of  India’s Premier Art and Craft Magazine ‘Our Idea Book’ arrived and we received a free icraft stencil. So we’ve used that in our layout:)!

We created a Tag. We used the colours of Our Indian Flag and Our National Bird – Peacock dancing away this summer. For our background, we used distress oxides with a stencil and distressed the edges. We stamped and die cut the peacock and individual feathers (Heartfelt Creations) and coloured them with zig markers.  The chipboard piece was coloured with acrylic paints. Finally, all elements were layered together.
