Live, Create, Tell your Story

You see how powerful the title is! It is something we resonate with and today we are here to show you a journal cover we created for ourselves. This year, we decided to go beyond a book for journaling! Last year, most of our books got so bulky that they wouldn’t close and we had baskets all around our house!

So this year, we’ve done up our covers on chipboard, and we’ll use some rings to keep our journal pages between these covers as and when we create.

We always need positivity, motivation, love around us and we represent this in our journal covers. Here’s a look at it, before we talk more about it.

Feb Lindy 1

It says it all- ‘Fall in Love with as many things as possible’ and we today urge you all to fall in Love with yourselves. Peep inside, and reflect. Any journey begins with loving yourself, and then you Live, Create and Tell your Story. The colours we used for this our the pink tones- Shade of Red, which to us are LOVE. This is one creation, which makes us proud of ourselves. While working on our covers, we also created a quick journal page to go inside it- that again is filled with positivity. Our insides of the front and back cover- have quotes, that sure will pump us up every time we open it. We were inspired by the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog and their February Theme- Shades of Red; by the mood board and colours at Lindy’s February Challenge; the Take Note theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge; Words & Paintery February Challenge- Love is all around

We’ve used Lindy’s Gang Products (Colours linked below); Prima Marketing- Stencil; Finnabair- Mediums, Art Stones, Waxes, Matallique Paints, Glitter, Stamps; Papericious -Chipboard and assorted chippies from our stash; Tim Holtz- Mini Motivation Stamps; Peek-a-boo Designs- Stencil

Gift Box and Journal Spread on Black

Hello everyone,We are excited to be back with our second post for Rinea:-)!

Today we’ve used the Love and Mettalics pack and created a mixed media journal page and a gift box! With Valentine’s soon approaching, we decided to make a gift box, as the foiled papers are perfect for them.

Here’s a look at the gift box:

 

 

 

 

We used the Papericious ready die cut box and decorated it with Rinea Papers. We first cut for our sides and the top. Then, we ran the paper for the sides, through an embossing folder, to add some interest. We then adhered them to the base of the box. We finally die-cut some swirls with a contrasting paper and stuck them on the sides and the top to complete it.  Doesn’t it make a perfect gift for your loved ones!?

Next, let’s have a look at our Journal Spread.

 

 

 

 

 

These papers were so pretty and vibrant that we decided to create a spread in our Black Book! For this spread, we’ve used two stencils and add some Art Alchemy paint through them for the background! We then used multiple Lindy’s Sprays and added splatter randomly. Next, we punched circles from various colours of the foiled paper. We used two sizes so we could punch within the bigger circle as well giving us rings. We also die cut a few elements and layered all of these on our prepped background! We completed it with a few word stickers!

 

 

Non-Verbal Spells

Today we’ve created a set of two tags. We’ve used an acrylic sheet as our base, with 7 Dots Studio Hazy Days Collection. We’ve used Art Alchemy Paints and waxes, Art Extravagance Glitters and Finnabair Mediums. We’ve used Lindy’s Sprays- Tweedle Dee Denim, Hydrangea Blue, Sidewalk Chalk, Gossamer Gold, Bayou Boogie Gold.

We came across the Magic School Joint Venture and saw the deadline for Stage1 was extended. So we decided to play along and take part. For the transparent material- we’ve used an acrylic sheet, Art Melange pebbles and tiny glass bottles to hold our magic potion.
