and here is my hybrid scrap using her page. Another one for our cuban vacation album:
The chipboard title from Cuts2Lus is painted with the beautiful deep purple metalic paints from the Finnabair product line. I wish the picture could catch the beautiful shimmer that it truly has. I love this FUN badge from Cuts2Luv, the Ombre effect is beautiful.
For my participation, I used the Prima Finnabair metalic paints on my chipboard and also diluted to color my flowers. I also added some metal fragmentson my page & flowers. And there is plenty of texture with my modeling paste thru the stencil.
My next entry for this page is my first particiation at Scrap Africa. I love the color of this beautiful moodboard. The mix of blue and purple,, wow... What inspired me was also the water and the flowers. I am pretty happy on how my page turned out with this color palet. The blue of the pool was my starting point for this page. We just loved relaxing there. When I looked at the moodboard it had energery and relaxation in it for me, that why I knew it was the perfect combo for my page.

What a great way to start the week...

What I like the most about the Blue Fern paper collections are the thickness of the paper. Playing with Mixed-Media brings challenges when you have light paper because it gets warped even though you coat it with clear gesso. I love the look and feel of this particular one, the wood grain effect is stunning with the hint of turquoise, I could not resist. You will also find on my page the title and some background chipboard ornaments. I Love the blue fern chipboards, they are hight wuality and are easy to manipulate.
For my challenge entry I chose for my page is this beautiful Tranquility collection piece:
Other products used on my pages are some badges from Cuts2Luv, my Lindy Stamp gang spray & Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
For the circles I played with chipboard pieces and titles for 2 Crafty Chipboards. I also added some embossed circles, a flair badge from Cuts2Luv and used some of the many drew drops that I've got stashed in my craftroom.
The chipboards really describe well our weekend that was tons of fun with friends with plenty of laughs. Also this cute stamp set that I have from Pretty Little Studios : One Fine Day, Dream Create Hustle Repeat and Just a Sweetie... Just perfect !
Here is a closer look:
I painted my chipboards with the Finnabair metalic paints, just YUMMY ! The pictures do not give it justice.
For my second entry, I was inspired by the Lindy Stamp Gang challenge, oooh got to love those bright colors, they just spoke to me.
I also had fun using my embossing powders and sprays from Lindy's stamp gang. I just love the effects on my page, it gives it so much debth.
Here is a closer look at one of the badges on my page:
Here is a closer look at the picture, my Cuts2Luv badge, my flowers and seashells that we pickup on the beach during our vacation.
Now for the second entry, Mixed Media Place, you can find the link here: July challenge moodboard
Now have a look at this moodboard, it's just YUMMY with that color combination. I was inspired by the Lake picture and the clouds, this is what promted me to use the picture of Gabriel on the boat, you have that similar fell to it.
One product that I always use when I start my mixed media pages is the clear Gesso, it's become my first step in all my most recent pages. There are many out there, but this one is my favorite:
Next step was to paint the metal piece that I had found, it was bronze and I didn't feel it had the right fit for the page. I used my same paint directly on the piece, no need to gesso before. It worked perfectly and I love the shimmer you get out of this paint. They've become my most recent favorites.
Other products used: Kaiserkraft die, Prima Marketing Flowers, Cuts2Luv badge, seashells, Finnabair Gel Medium & Scrapiniec die-cut.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my page, it was fun to make. Thanks for the inspiration ladies
