Cute Monster ~The Scrap Cake~

Hi there!
I`m sharing today a layout not typically my style but I had so much fun creating it!
We have this week at The Scrap Cake blog a fun post about playing with our collections "Spring Awakening" and "Little Monsters" in freestyle.
I chose to play with "Little Monsters" collection and this is what I came up with....
I began creating this layout from a white sheet of canvas. I used a few colors Glimmer Mist paint to create the background colors so I can match the pattern papers. And because of the funny photo of my son Alexander I used pirate clear stamps to match the photo. The blue heart and the blue bird were cut out of canvas as well....
Here are two close-ups....

Hope you have a Happy and Creative week!

The Color Room

Hi there!
Today I`m sharing a layout I made for The Color Room. I used their palette #58. I usually don`t have time to play in challenges no matter how much I like them but last weekend I had some extra hours and I created this layout. This is my second time I`m using their palette. Last time I made a page was a year ago ;-).
I used the "Butterfly Garden" collection from Pink Paislee.
Well, as you can see I changed "a little bit" one of the colors :-))) or should I say I went out of the box... anyway, I`m happy with the result. The photos were printed in three colors...B&W, sepia and green.
As always I began creating my layout with white cardstock and Glimmer Mist. What I did this time was to use one of the Ornate Gates (medium - DA0188) from Dusty Attic. I had it for such a long time and I`m happy I finally used it. I cut the ornaments out of the gate and used them as a stencil for my background. The rest I used as a frame for my photos. I wanted to do something different from this chippie and my purpose was to use it anything but a gate.
I also used "The Butterfly Garden" Clear Stamps  to decorate my edges....
When I painted it with Gesso I applied puffy paint.....
The puffy paint is a fabric paint that you use with a heat gun and the result is its beautiful puffy dimension....
All the alphas you see on the page are from Webster`s Pages "Country Estate" collection....
I applied puffy paint over the swirls as well.....
The butterfly is a clear stamp from Prima Marketing and the flowers and pearls as well.....
For the bird I used Fiskars` Clear stamp....

Hope you enjoyed my layout!
Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my blog and to leave such sweet comments....your support is so much appreciated!

My Creative Scrapbook ~Main Kit~

Hi there!
Today I`m sharing my work with the Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook. I was so happy when I opened my kit and I saw all the Webster`s Pages papers and embellies from the beautiful "Ladies & Gents" collection....one of my favorites!
Here are my 4 layouts I created with this gorgeous kit....
There was a white netting in the kit which I colored with a Copic Marker. I used a lighter to make the ruffle edges....
The yellow netting you see is from a package of lemons :-).....




And finally sharing one of my favorite photos . I took this photo in Amsterdam not so long ago. On the photo you see my son Alexander. I can`t wait to scrap this photo :-)
I hope you enjoyed again my post today! 
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and THANK YOU so much for taking the time to visit my blog!
Hugs,
