Hello  :)

For my today blog post I prepared a spread with gorgeous Pocket Chip pieces. I made also a video to show you, how everything was created.

Below you can see a close-up with Happy Hello Pocket Chip covered with embossing powder.

On the background paper I applied gesso through UmWowStudio stencils - Checker Board Mask and Wood Grain Mask.

Here you can see a chipboard from Today Chevron Pocket Chip set.

And here you can watch the video with a whole process of creation - enjoy :)

new beginning {Zeus&Zoe}

Hello :)

It is my first day at Zeus&Zoe blog as a designer and I have to say how happy and thrilled I am! Marivic, who is the owner of Zeus&Zoe etsy store, creates amazing kits for shabby and vintage lovers! There are so many inspiring and unique elements in each kit!! When I unpacked mine, I couldn't resist to start creating immediately! Thank you Marivic for inviting me to the team!

My first layout as a Zeus&Zoe DT member is about new beginning. Literally and figuratively. I just have started my new, great adventure here but there are many new beginnings around us all year. Days, months, seasons, strawberry season, school, job, love, friendship - everything begins. And I wanted to honour all happy beginnings in my life.

Almost everything, you see below, come from Zeus&Zoe kit handpicked by Marivic. I have added some shabby touch to a canvas star and a few buttons, applying some gesso on it. 

Take a look at this beautiful, handmade flower, which was a part of Zeus&Zoe Kit Collection!

The whole composition is around the circle, which I draw in the central part of 7 Dots Studio paper. I used pencil, Gelatos and Caran D'Ache Neocolor crayons, which you can buy at Zeus&Zoe store. These are absolutely wonderful crayons, soft and easy to be applied and totally water-soluble. But if you prefer not to use water, they are also wonderful - give great coverage, vivid colors and wonderful texture.

Most elements was put on a foam squares, so to add the dimension. Final touch was adding some splatters with black Indian Ink and some stamping.

All flowers, except crocheted one, come from Manor House Value Pack available at Zeus&Zoe store.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Radiate love {SATW}

Hello :)

This month host of challenge at Scrap Around the World is Marilyn Rivera! Take a look at her gorgeous moodboard!!

I was inspired by long dresses, colors and golden shimmer. I created an art-journal spread (double A4) with an angel and a text: "Radiate love. It is the only source of real happiness."

Here are some close-ups:

I have used many colors of Luminarte Silks.

Background was primed with clear gesso and then I started layering the color media.

On the background you can see Lindy's Stamp Gang vintage sprays - Buccaneer Bay BlueTreasure Island AquaTawny Turquoise. 

Dress was created using different shades of Silks.

Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like, using one image, several of them, all of them or even just one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!
