Here we go again.. – Studio Tekturek

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!! How come it´s already end of August?? Where did this month go? Eek..soon the school starts again and fall is here. It´s been a strange summer for sure. But on the positive side, my mojo is back and I feel better again. Not so drained anymore. And today I´m also sharing my first DT project, created using the gorgeous Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection.

Here is the crazy layout I created with the happy and bright summer collection:

There is a story behind these silly photos… These were taken by me in March while at the hospital (during guarantine, I might add!). A day after my cruciate surgery I was all alone in a 3-bed-room and bored. Also, I might have been unter the influence of painkillers still and I took these photos :).

I found that they work so well with this sugar sweet collection that I made them the focal point of this layout. I´ve used plenty of Strawberry Shake papers, stickers and alphas on this layout. Only the spray ink, stamping, acrylic embellishments are not from the collection, but from my own stash.

I´ve recorded a start-to-finish video to go with this layout, so you get a better idea of each an every step. Hope you like the video and get inspired!!

And if you fall in love with this colorful collection, do contact your local scrapbook store and ask them to stock up some Studio Tekturek at their store ;-). I´ll be posting a tutorial on the 29th of every month during my DT term, so if you liked what you saw, do come back for more next month!!

Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy scrapping!

You are the Best

Hello, and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another card with you. This one is again created using mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products. I managed to make a pile of cards the other day and it felt really good. So I think I´m back :).

When I made the bold and colorful card (see my previous post!) and I used the Spring Fling stamp set, it inspired me to create a DIY stamped patterned paper (like on the card above). I love how the fragile flowers look like on the background.

I then just die cut the oval into the middle and added the die cut flower pieces and a stamped sentiment. A little bit of Silk Microfine Glitter on the flowers adds a nice sparkle and a few enamel dots finish the card off.

And it´s all in brown tones. I haven´t used brown in a while, so it was about time. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

Stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and welcome to the June STAMPlorations stencil challenge reminder post! Whew, what a sentence!! 🙂 Without further ado, here is my take for the June reminder post:

I again created a double spread into my art journal. The theme of these pages is: The Story of Living Things. I bought an old book about „living things“ a year ago from a trift store. I thought now was a good time to start using it!

During the social isolation the nature got a well deserved pause from us humans and this art journal is a „hommage“ on all living things, except us humans.

On this page I used glossy paint and spray ink on the background. It created a faux wooden pattern. On top are clear stickers from STAMPlorations as well as white texture paste applied thru one of my stencils. The birdies on a branch are by STAMPlorations as well as is the stamp set I used to stamp it with. The leaves are hand drawn on old book paper and the text is from the trift store book.

For the second page I used white paint and spray ink on the background to create a resist area. Then I stamped with STAMPlorations stamps onto the background and added a green tinted texture paste thru one of my stencil designs around the edges. The focal point of this page are the flowers, stamped on an old book page, then misted and highlighted with Posca pens.

I really enjoyed creating this inspiration spread for the reminder post! Now is your turn. There is still plenty of time to play along. Remember to follow the rules and have fun with this months challenge!!! Can´t wait to see what you create!

Happy stenciling,

Remember the now ATC

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing yet another artist trading card, created using some of the new Elizabeth Craft Designs product I received in the mail last week.

For this one I created the background using Distress Inks and Stains, then stamped in the same way, like on the ATC shared yesterday (read more here).

So the background is similar/identical to the one shared yesterday, but for this one I also used some leftover die cut pieces as leaves, then added a suede ribbon that I misted with spray ink and matted the card onto a turquoise piece of burlap. Also this one has a sentiment as additional detail.

Love the contrast of pink and turquoise with the black stamping. Adding these pieces to my ATC stash again.

Wishing you all a great begin into the weekend!!
Happy crafting,

Stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today it´s again time to remind you all about the May STAMPlorations stencil challenge and the fact that there is still time to play along with it!

Here is what I created for the reminder post:

For this page I used the Fall Floral Trio and the Make Marks 1 stencils with Distress Paints. For the tag I used the negative image of the Lattice stencil.

I just applied yellow and purple Distress Paint thru the stencils onto the background and let the layers dry. Then I took the word „today“ from the Sweet Cravings stamp set and stamped with black stamp ink. there is also the Newsprint Background Bits #1 clear sticker on the background – cut into smaller strips.

For the tag I misted a Distress Paint covered stencil with water and pressed the image onto a piece of white cardstock. Then I cut the piece into a tag size and added the faux stitching, ribbon and the clear sticker sentiment.

For finishing touches I also added the Buttercups and Butterflies stamp set flowers, fussy cut them and colored those with Distress Crayons.

Now it´s your turn. There is still enough time to play along with the stencil challenge. Hop over to the blog to see the other inspiration projects and then join us! Hope to have inspired you to play along!!!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
