Layouts are always fun to create. Today we’re here to show you our latest Layout, with a lot of fussy and die cut elements. No 3 D texture, like our layouts, yet the same depth and dimension.

We’ve used the Kaisercraft Lilac Whispers and Wandering Ivy Collection for this layout.

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

Tropical Paradise

Today we are super thrilled to have been giving an opportunity to guest design for Lindy’s Stamp Gang. Ever since we stepped into the world of Mixed Media, we got hooked onto Lindy’s Sprays. We knew no other brand then, and are obsessed with them. Over years, we’ve grown our collections of sprays,  magical and embossing powders and creating with them is fun!

Today we decided to alter a cycle frame and create a Tropical Paradise Scene! We wanted to create a tropical scene and be lost in the magic of nature! We’ve done it in the mixed media style, and have a video showing the entire process:)! So sit back, relax and enjoy creating with us!
