Happy Birthday Ma!

Today is mom’s birthday and we truly miss her! It’s the first time ever in our life that she is not around and we are looking forward to having her back soon!

Today, I decided to scrap her and made this layout for her birthday! The LO truly captures Ma’s spirit- colourful and balanced. She truly adds colour to our lives!

Here’s a look at it:

Ma Altenew LO 1For this one, I used a whole lot of Altenew Supplies- The papers and embellishments from ‘The Reflection Scrapbook Kit’, sentiment from ‘Persian Motifs’ Stamp Set, background stamping using ‘A Splash of Color’ and ‘Wild Hibiscus’ Stamp sets and the frame around the picture from the ‘Framed’ stamp set.

The background on this LO is all about stamp play. The colour blotches from the stamp set were used to match the background colours to add interest yet not make it a focal point. The flowers were stamped using black ink to add more detail and balance the colours. The fussy cut flowers go perfectly well. I also cut a few tags of different sizes on a different pattern paper and used it in the layering. To complete the layout, I added some white splatter, to further enhance the layout!

Here are some close-ups:

Here’s a look at our layout before we getting into our inspirations:)!

Fantasy LO 1

Fantasy LO 3Fantasy LO 2Fantasy LO 4Fantasy LO 5Fantasy LO 7

We were inspired by the following challenges:

Mixed Media and Art October Challenge- Fantasy – We were inspired by the dark shades of blue, grey, green contrasted with the yellow gold of the light, as well as the theme of fantasy and the first image of being lost among stars.

Words and Paintery October challenge – inspired by the colours and theme of creating without limits.

7 Dots Studio October Challenge- Sunrise- Sunset– inspired by sunset leading to a dark yet hopeful night. We’ve used the Dreamscapes and HazyDays Collection.

Cuts2Luv November Challenge– we were inspired by the darker blue-grey tones with the contrast of yellow/gold; our badge has stars on it and we used a clock as our embellishment.

We’ve also created this project for the Stage 4 of Creative Art Project at Mixed Media and Art and have an exclusive post for that here.

 

Creative Art- Stage 4

For the Mixed Media and Art Creative Art Project Stage 4-Brilliant Decoration,  we’ve created a layout where we’ve used a large hoop style earring on our layout as an embellishment and our entire layout has a shine in terms of glitter beads and gold sparks.

cutsoct17ang

In our Layout, we’ve used the Wooden Pattern as our background paper; autumn trees in our focal photo; leaves as our embellishments and the colour combo. To top it all we also followed the sketch! We’ve not given a particular title to this one, as we thought the photo and the Cuts2Luv badge did justice to our layout!

Here’s a look at it:
