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!

I have a dream, a song to sing…

Today we’ve created a layout inspired by the Papericious August Challenge Mood BoardMore Than Words August Challenge and Mixed Media World Challenge.

We were inspired by the bright vibrant colours, butterflies, sequins and dream catcher from the Papericious Mood Board.

For the More Than Words Challenge, we’ve portrayed Harmony in the world around us, in nature and how everything comes together. We were inspired by the song “I have a dream” from Westlife. This song further emphasises on the fact that we all have dreams and sometimes it’s all things around us that come in harmony to fulfil these dreams.

We were inspired by the beauty in nature and the colours from the Mixed Media World Board.

We’ve used a lot of Papericious mediums and mixed media products for this one. All the supplies are listed at the end of this post.

Here’s a look at our layout:
