You are loved for 49andMarket

Hello, dear friends!
I’m back today to share a second layout with the fabulous “Sand and Sea” collection. I love this collection with blue tone, it's perfect for my winter pages. For the background, I used the B side of "Coral Reef" paper. After preparing it with Clear gesso, I used blue ink to create a watercolor effect on my paper.

 I stamped some leaves of "Gabi's Herbacious stamp" to create a texture on my background.

Then, I added a clock chipboard of the "Archival Board Timeless white". I love these new chipboards. Also, I added some flowers of the "Garden Bloom Alabaster" and "Basic flowers Roses white".

I used some stamped leaves and the stamped title from the stamp "Valerie's You are Loved".

Focus on the good for 49andMarket

Hi 49andMarket lovers,
Here is a new layout I would like to share with you. This is a page that represents a dream that I had and that came true. In life, you have to believe in your dreams and focus on what really matters to us.
I did it using the collection “Sand and Sea” and I used the B side of "Sea Creatures" paper.

I have prepared my paper with Clear Gesso before adding some modeling paste with stencils and 2 colors of spray inks. I added the flower frame and butterflies of the layered embellishment "Wings&Things" behind my photo. 

I added a lot of 49andMarket "Garden Seed Natural Blush" and "Floral Mixology Cosmopolitan". I also embossed stamped flowers with "Hibiscus Summer stamp" with pale pink embossing powder.

At the end, I added a bit of white gesso here and there with tiny splashes on my layout.

I used some chipboard scraps to create my background. I painted all the pieces with white gesso and I added crackle paint to add a texture.

I sprayed all of my tag with 4 colors of Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.

 I added some plain branches of the set "Foliage #11".

You light up my life for Dusty Attic

Hi Dusty Attic lovers!
I'm back this month with another layout. This one is about my favorite animal, inspired by the 7dots studio November Moodboard.

I used "Perforated Mesh" on my background to create a lot of texture on my page. I glued my chipboard with 3d gel medium and I sprayed Lindy's spray ink on it to create a beautiful effect.

To add some embellishments, I embossed "Flower Stamens" with Lindy's stamp gang gold embossing powder. I used the word "You light up my life" as title. I sprayed and embossed with my Lindy's products. 



 I think I have a little problem.....

Materials used:

Dusty Attic "Perforated Mesh"
Dusty Attic "Flower Stamens"
Cuts2luv flair
Lindy's stamp gang King Midas Gold Embossing Powder

Mixed Media Canvas with Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray

Hi Lindy’s lovers! Today, I would like to share a big canvas that I made for my daughter with some Lindy's colorful spray ink and shaker. I used my Lindy’s with a brush, like a watercolor paint.


I started by using Lindy's sprays with a brush to create a watercolor background.  I used some water to dilute the ink.


Then, I painted watercolor leaves and added some splashes everywhere.


I created doodle flowers and leaves with an archival pen.


I added some details with white paint and a mixture created from shaker and medium glaze. At the end, I added some splashes of Sidewalk Chalk ink spray.


I used a color combo that goes well together. I'm in love with these bright colors.


I’ve made a video showing the process I used in detail so you can try this yourself.

Thank you for watching!
