Floral Notes


 Hello girls,

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 NetFlora 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

Spring Perfume

Good Morning,

Are you already feeling the nice warm spring air ?     

Here below I share with you my Step by Step of  "Katya is smelling the                             Perfume of the Spring Air" 

  1.  Blend on the Journaling Page a red colour of  Distress Ink Pad 
  2. Cover all with white gesso and let dry 
  3. Blend several blue colors of  Distress Ink Pad  on the gesso 
  4. Rub a baby wipe on Katya stamp to have the perfect humidity before                           stamping                                       

5.  Stamp Floral Perfumery with Versafine on a white cardstock,  

     colour the stamp with watercolors and cut the contour                                         6.  Stamp  with Archival  the words  Perfume from Floral Perfumery

     and Spring from March Fairy on a piece of scrap cardstock 

     colored with the same color of the flower of point 5                                             7. Glue the decoupage cuts on the journaling page and stamp little 

     butterflies in black around Katya,  as shown and don't forget to 

     use a nice ribbon as label holder.


I hope you had a spring inspiration from my page and  thanks for passing by, hugs

Flutter with me


 Hello girls,

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. 

Happy Dance 

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. 


Here I just played with Distress Ink pad   for the background wash, stenciling         several layering with matching and contrast colors and for coloring the butterfly.           You can find the butterfly in the big selection of Just Butterflies and the sentiment            in Butterfly Flourish Swirl


For this card I prepared several stamped script paper pieces, I cut them randomly and glue on the cardstock.   
I blended with different green and red shades of Distress Ink pad  and colored the decoupage butterfly of Just Butterflies with watercolor pencils. 
"Spring" of March Fairy was for me perfect to be used for the label 

I hope you liked my butterflies card of today, I wish you all a very nice spring, hugs

Candy Box


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.




I hope to see you in some weeks again with another Christmas project, hugs

Remembrance Day


 Hello girls,

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 Idea


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

I hope my post inspired you for a nice project, hugs

 Hello Girls,

As the other colors, also Black and White have shades and I  played today                                                     with them using Distress Paint .  

You can clearly notice in the first picture the difference of the shades,                                                         while in the second picture the contrast is brought out through the hot                                                       embossed Sketchy Doodle Landscape stamp.                                                                                           Differently from the common use of VersaMark for embossing the flower,                                                              I humidified my finger with a baby wipe, dipped it in the embossing powder                                                     first, then gently I passed it on the page before heating.                                                                                                                                                         

The result of the Dust around the flowers was surprising,                                                                                     you can better see it zooming in the second picture. 

                                                                                                                                                                              I took the  sentiments from Amazing Mackintosh Words ,                                                                                   where you can find a large choice of thoughts.

Small bookmark
I stamped the mushrooms of Autumn Edges on a craft tag using Versafine Vintage Sepia                                and colored with brown, light and dark sepia, white and black Charcoal pencils 


Thank you for passing by,  see you in October and  take care

Shooting Stars


 A warm hello to everyone with my first post of September.

The 11th of August was the night of the shooting stars and I filled the sky of my project with them. Here below the recipe

1.  Stamp the flowers of Scrumptious Succulents with Archival Ink jet black                                                     2.  Cover all the flowers with a Masking Fluid using a large silicone clay tool and scribble the fluid with a      brush across the sky.                                                                                                                                          3.  Colour with a dark blue wash of Distress Ink Pad  the sky section and with an earth colour the ground.                         4.  Let well dry, remove the masking fluid scratching very gently with your finger.                                             5.  Colour your flowers with Distress Ink Pad                                                                                                     6.  Stamp the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock of the same plate Scrumptious Succulents with Archival Ink jet black and colour it with the same earth ground colour used previously

For this next card I used only a Gelli Plate as a base to work on.  I stenciled, colored with Distress Ink Pad 
stamped at the end Music Fanfare stamp before lifting all with the white cardstock. On a left over piece I stamped with Distress Ink Pad  the sentiment of Words to Dazzle & Sparkle and the little decoupage flower of Music Fanfare

I hope you enjoyed my projects today, hugs

Unlock Yourself


These three colors on a neutral of grey brownish shades background filled my page today.

Brown for an old key
Green for the new peace    and
Red for the future

For stamping Fantasy Woodland Tree, the sentiment of Essence of Nature and coloring the backgrounds  I used only  Distress Ink Pad.

As  second project I create a Tag colored with Distress Ink Pad on which I stamped with Archival Jet Black  images of Seashell Collage. The illusion of the waves is given pressing a baby wipe on a stencil, while the dust of the sea, is the result of spritzing water on the tag using a water spritzer.
