It's my day, so make waves


Hiya, having a nice weekend? Mine was sunny, so the card is perfect, but we're having like 9 degrees Celsius so no warm breezes yet. But you can always dream of tropical beaches and splashing waves when card making at least.

Pixie's Snippets Playground: The turquoise slim border to the left is a snippet cut in three pieces and taped in place lengthwise to create a feeling of a turquoise mat.

Less Is More: Washi tape


CASology: Foliage.

CASe this sketch: I turned it around.



Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Tree high hi!


Hope you're well and high in spirits, if not, lots of hugs! The latest weeks have had both it highs and lows, so here's a tree high "hi" to all on a roller coaster week.

Challenges:
Addicted to CAS: Wood
Snarky Stamper's: X as in Extreme (stamping off the edge)
Pixie's Snippets Playground: Snippets to make the sentiment

Materials used:
A very gentle sprinkle of Brushos onto dry water colour paper and the spritzing with a water mister. The Stampscape tree was stamped off the edge with black ink. The sentiment was cut out from several small snippets with a Cuttlebug die, the cut outs were stacked and glued together. The image panel was also stacked onto lots of larger paper left overs to add a bit dimension and then mounted onto black Panduro card stock.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! Hope your week will be filled with lots of fun crafting.

Lots of love and hugs
Maarit

Set me free!


Hiya, hope you're well and looking forward to the weekend. I've been down with the flu and it hit me really hard this time, so I'm still in bed on doctor's order. I had an unshown journal page on my 'puter so I thought that I could join the Paint Party Friday, a very inspiring place to visit :)


Love and hugs

Friday the 13th


Hiya, hope you're well! I'm late to the Paint Party Friday with this journal page. My intentions was to show it yesterday, Friday the 13th. I thought the image would be perfect with all the black and the slight uneasiness in it.

I used acrylic paints and pens, Aqua Markers, Gesso, a ribbon snippet, some old alphabet stickers, paper snippets to add texture and matte medium.

Have a wonderful creative weekend, get those hands inky or colour stained, tear some paper strips and pick your favourite glue, I will :)

Love and hugs
Maarit
