For my background I wanted something soft. So used my favorite color turquoise, borrowed my friend Caroline's gorgeous stamp and embossed the stamp in turquoise and black. On the black ones, I added watercolor and cut them out. Then I started my layering and added ornaments
Thanks for the inspiration to Jaya & the Scrap aux Puce team.
The image reminds me of the Indian traditions of throwing powdered colors to the wind, abit like the color run race. For my page I used all the colors, in bright splashes. I colored a Mandala using the same colors, but it was a bit smaller than expected, so it get's lost a bit under the picture. The Mandals was in an adult coloring book, it's the new craze right now. I was traveling for business and decided to bring my crayons along for the flight.... Here is a closer look:
On my page I added some cuts2luv flair buttons and some die-cuts as well as a stamped image of the Tim Holtz crazy bird collection. I just felt the bird was a cute touch as this is a souvenir page od our DUCK Tour in Boston.

The second challenge entry for this page is over at the 13 arts blog. This month it's all about PINK.
Here is the blog challenge link: 13Arts
Sadly none of my 13 arts products are pink, so I was not able to use them on this challenge. Note to myself to order more colors... I love their papers and the paints.
Lastly, I entered this challenge on one of the February challenges at Scrap Aux Puces. The challenge was watercolor printing with stamps. The big buttefly located on the left of my picture is made using my distress stains and that technique.
THINK PINK! So happy to be doing girly pages for once...LOL
My picture was a bit larger that the one she had used, so I played with the layout a bit, but you can still see the resemblance. I added the stamped birds for a little fun, it was perfect for this picture.
Here is Jessika's page:
What can I say... that is such a stunning page, it was easy to be inspired by it.
Here is a closer look at the title that was embosed with ZINK glitter (OMG a wonderful discovery from my friend Caroline's stash... Now I need this)
The story behind this picture is that my dad was dying and the nurses at the hopital let us bring him my dog Maya for a visit. My Dad just loved my dog and she loved my Dad. The trick was we needed to hide her to pass the security gards at the entrance. So my husband and the boys hid her in a Gym bag and she collaborated perfectly. Not a sound or peep her whole time at the Hospital. We were in a Private room, so it was fine. The nurses came to see her and just loved to see the smile on my Dad's face. This is probably one of my favorite memories of his last days. I truly miss him...Can't believe that it's been 3 years since he's been gone.
The challenge is as it typically is….be inspired by at least 1 element in the picture below and please let us know what you were inspired by in your post. The twist is white space. That is always a hard thing for me and my cluttered mind. Do not forget to read the revised guidelines below the inspo picture.
Twist: White space
Thanks for the challenge ladies... I am very please with how my page turned out.
Have a great day !
Valerie did a great video on how to make the flowers, check out her video here (In french only, but you'll be able to figure it out) :
again... lost of inspiration... this project is so much fun...
I started with white cardstock and added a layer of light medium thru a text stencil:
Then I started playing with my paints combining the, with Liquid Glazing medium:
I found that the 13 Arts paint is REALLY REALLY pigmented so I should have used more medium with it, It just would not come off with the baby wipes as normal acrylique paint would... so it was one of this OH WELL moments, let's deal with it and move on...
Oh yes... VERY VERY pigmented paint that just does not want to come off my fingers. Gotta love that Mix-Media manicure:
To my surprise when this was drying, the hearts were turning blue... did I mention that the paint was very pigmented? LOL
Then I just added some of the beige paint on with my fingers to create more momentum in the background with touches of the blue paint on certain ares to give the page more debth.
And then you just add the ornaments a litlle splatter of ink here and there, some stamping and you are done....
On my page you will find Cuts2luv badges, Creative Embelishments frame & title die-cuts, Prima flowers and I was ready to go...
Here is one of her pages that I really loved...
Thanks for the inspiration Scrap aux Puce Design Team & Frau Muller...
