My Happy Place

Did you view the Journal Page tutorial using Gel Press yesterday? Well today, we have used the remaining pieces with the same colours lifted in yesterday’s video and created a completely different page. This one is with elements, depth and dimension.

We were inspired by :

The Moodboard at Scrap n Pieces for the April Challenge– “My Favorite Things” for us is ‘My Happy Place’- being in nature, with flowers blooming, birds chirping and butterflies flying. We were also inspired by the colour palette and the various textures on the board.

Crafter’s Castle April Challenge– For us Dimension is in the form of all elements against each other, adding depth and giving the real feel.

Here’s the link to the tutorial in case you missed it:

School Postcard

Today we’ve created a postcard as a wish to a teacher for Teacher’s Day. We’ve used the collage technique to inspire you with the Happy Little Stampers Challenge theme. We’ve incorporated the words school and play (school as our theme and play of colors) to inspire you with the challenge at Colorful Creations. We’ve incorporated the theme of School Fun with a twist of books to inspire you with the Mixed Media Mojo Challenge!

Do drop by and participate in these challenges!
