Hooray, sweet day! – Studio Tekturek

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! Like promised on Tuesday, I´ll be sharing another small project with you, inspired by the layout project I shared this Tuesday :). Here it is:

I created a slimline card with the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake summer 2020 collection and as I was making it, I wanted to make a card in similar style. So I just kept on gelli printing the circles onto this piece of white paper and went from there. As my background I have the paper #1 from the summer collection. It works great as a card base – I just used the bolder design on the outside and the blue sky is on the inside.

I really like how this card turned out. I pretty much used the same products as on my layout, only here I used a different paper and the paper flowers are an addition.

If you want to know how this card came together, see the layout video for the technique on my Tuesday´s post. Oh, how I enjoy this collection and the candy colours!!!

Wishing you all a lovely day & happy crafting,

Good vibes only! – Studio Tekturek

Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again very excited to share my Studio Tekturek September project (and video) with you!! I really love how it turned out and totally adore the candy colours of the Strawberry Shake collection!!

This is the page I did! I had such a great time creating it. The colours might say summer, but I think they work so very well for many other themes and seasons too. Like everyday scrapbooking themes :)!

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. It shows the whole process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy watching it :).

Basically almost everything on this layout is from the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection, except for some embellishments and the Distress Inks, stamps, as well as the white paper.

I hope this layout inspires you to give Studio Tekturek a try. Follow their Facebook page for more details on where to buy their collections and see their Instagram site for more inspiration!

I will be back in a few days with another project that was inspired by this layout, so see you on Thursday again ;-)!!

Happy scrapping,

What day is it?

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!! I´ve lost count – some days I almost can´t figure out what day it is! It´s probably because every day is pretty much the same. So there is not even a difference between weekdays and weekends. Thus this art journal page 🙂

I used the funny birdie image on this page, because it just looked as confused as I am feeling some days :). The background is again done with Distress Crayons. Underneath I´ve adhered a tissue paper that was gelli printed. Then plenty of crayon layers on top. Cannot get enough of this technique!!!

And then just a fussy cut text to go with it all – that looks as confused and disorderly like the birdie… Just putting thoughts and feelings down on paper this time. I´ve basically done a page a day the last week or so. That is approximately the time I can sit at the moment. Then it´s just pain and ache. So going with what my body allows. One small journal page a time.

Hope you are all doing ok at your end!!?

Raw – Art journal page

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I´m again stopping by to share another art journal page with you guys. This one is a different kind of one. Are you ready?

So this is a face that was left over from a magazine transfer playtime with my gel plate. The face was covered with paint and looked so good that I didn´t want to throw it away. So I saved it and adhered it into my journal.

Then, inspired by something Dina Wakley did on one of her FB lives, I „painted“ the face anew. She had used scribble sticks on her live (if I remember correctly), but due to the color on the page, I chose to use Posca Pens. So I basically repainted the face using various tones of Posca markers and it was just sooo much fun. Besides, it´s a great way to learn how to color, where to add shadows and light. I am not saying this one is perfect, because it´s not. But I learned alot by doing this. And it was so much fun. And I think she looks really cool this way.

For finishing touches I just doodled the word „raw“ onto a gel plate paper piece and fussy cut that. Voilá!

That´s all for today. Hope you are all doing well?!

Temporarily closed – AJ page

Hello lovelies and happy Tuesday! I´m excited to share another art journal page with you today. This one turned out so to my liking!!

I originally had something going on on the page already, but didn´t like it at all. That happens. So, I took a piece of tissue paper that I had done with a gel plate, adhered that on top and started anew. After the gel plate tissue, I grabbed some bookpaper bits. Adhered those and then applied first gold acrylic paint here and there. Then I grabbed my beloved Distress Crayons and applied the gorgeous colours (also the white! crayon – love it here!!). Next I placed my Dots ´n Beans stencil and placed it on some areas to wipe of a bit of the crayon.

You can hardly see that, but look for the the blue and pink areas, you might recognize the stencil pattern there. I already had a quote in mind I wanted to use, but hadn´t figured out how I wanted to use it. Then it hit me – writing on a book page and fussy cutting each and every letter extra, then adhering in rows. I LOVE how that turned out! So going to do this more often :), definitely!

That´s it, lovelies. It´s a simple page, but I love how it turned out. Happy times!
