I don't really like the white cover of my new note book, so I decided to personalize it making it colorful and funnier.
I considered the cover as if it were a simple sheet to use on a monoprint plate with different stencils and colors. I used the same Distress Ink Pad colors and the same stencils for the two toppers. On one I stamped with Archival Ink Jet black only the sentiment of Bridge House, on the other also a portion of the Italian House. The tiny decoupage flower is a cropped part of Floral Edges another so precise and detailed stamp of Chocolate Baroque
I hope you liked this transformation and I thank you for reading my post today.

Who hasn't dreamt of places visited in the past and hasn't thought of returning as soon as it will be possible again ? I closed my eyes for a while before jumping into my inspiration of using the beautiful Turret House stamp of Chocolate Baroque. For the colored background I blended different Distress Ink Pad colors, and dabbed a darker color on a stencil, stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black the house and the sentiment of Turret House and applied some glitter glue to lighten up a bit.
Thanks for your visit and have a lovely May, hugs

Music and Flowers are in the recipe of this first post of April.
At first, looking at the stamps plates, I decided the colors to use for the Brusho-Wash background. Then I stamped Floribunda Net, Flora Musica and Harlequin Bouquet of Chocolate Baroque with Archival ink on tissue papers. After that I cut several decoupages and decided which to use and where to glue them on the page. Finally I colored very delicately some flowers with water colored pencils and spritzed very softly with water. When all was well dry, I stamped from Music Fanfare and Floral Notes the two stamps in red.
I hope you liked this different journaling page today, Hugs

I like to see the first butterflies flutter in the mild spring air and this feeling of joy inspired me to create these three cards with Chocolate Baroque stamps.
On a blue Brusho colored white cardstock I stamped Butterfly Dress and colored it with Pan Pastel. The little butterflies and the decoupage butterfly are in Just Butterflies, while you can find the sentiment in the Butterfly Perfumery. plate. I used Distress Ink pad for coloring the butterfly, blending through the stencil and stamping the sentiment Happy Dance.

It's nearly time to think how to be creative for Christmas.
I will start with this second post of November to propose you some ideas, and this time it will be a candy box and some gift tags, that you can use as tree decorations too.
Candy Box : I cut the mats from a white cardstock, stamped with black Archival the images of Chocolate Baroque stamps "A Tomte Christmas", the top of the pointed figure of "Dusky Damask", a part of "The Christmas Garden" stamps and Joy of "Let's get Festive". I used watercolor pencils for coloring the stamps and Distress Ink Pad to darken the edges of the box.
Gift Tags : I stamped with black Archival the Tomte images, colored with watercolor pencils and cut the contour considering the joint for the opening of the double tag.

It has become a tradition for me to do a project for the 11th of November and I am on time to share it with you.
Of course there is a white gesso coat under the blended red and violet shades of Distress Ink Pad, around the yellow area. I covered all with gesso again, stamped with black Archival the poppy of "Poppy Meadow "rubber plate and one little poppy of "Floral Notes" directly on the page. The second little poppy is stamped on a tissue paper and glued with "Inkssentials Gue n Seal". Chocolate Baroque has a lots of lovely Poppy Stamps. I used red and green watercolours for coloring the flowers and intensify the background blending again Distress Ink Pad blending darker red on a stencil. I finished my page by printing with the printer the lettering.
Thank you for passing by, hugs

Autumn is a lovely season and we can see so many beautiful colors around us. I thought to block some of them on my Journaling page of today.
Layers of different materials as white Gesso, Distress Acrylic Paints, Distress Ink Pad, Stencil, are used for creating the background, on which the green leaves of Autumn Edges are dancing down to the ground where the red decoupage mushrooms of Autumn Poppy is standing. The sentiment of Amazing Mackintosh Words is stamped in black and cut in 3 pieces for softening the look of the page
