Prendre le temps pour Cuts2luv Special BlackFriday

Bon matin,
Voici une page que j'adore particulièrement et qui sort un peu de ce que je fait habituellement. J'utilise rarement plus d'un papier pour faire une page. Ici je me suis laisser tenter et j'en ai mixer 2.
J'adore l'effet!

J'ai utilisé le badge fleurs du kit "Pause"

J'ai aussi utilisé le merveilleux badge que vous aurez dans vos commandes passés du 22 au 25 novembre sur le site de Cuts2luv!!!

Il est tellement beau!!!! Vous ne pouvez pas passer à coté!

Merci pour la visite!
On se revoit en décembre pour 2 nouvelles pages :)

Dusty Attic November Moodboard

Hi everyone!
Today, I would like share with you a layout inspired by the November Dusty Attic Moodboard.
I'm so inspired by the colors ans the flowers. Lots of beautiful chipboards newly released are perfect for my layout.

Have you look the new foliages!!!!I'm in love!! More on the website!!
Available HERE


 I used the new chipboard "Foliage #13" that I embossed with 2 colors of Lindy's embossing powder. I love create a ombre effect with my chipboard. 
It's simple. You just have to use 1 color at a time. Here I started with the dark one and I added the second pale purple.

 I used the word "Love your smile" from the set "Mini captions #11". I so happy with the look I created on my word title. I don't know how! haha. I used the wrong color and I put on more than one coat.
Feel free to test!

Materials used:

-13arts papers
-Pink fresh studio papers

Mixed Media background with doodling

Hi Lindy’s lovers,

I’m back today to share a step-by-step video on how to create a mixed media background with ink sprays, magicals, embossing powder, stamps and drawings. I love mixing my spray with different techniques to create spectacular and unique layout backgrounds. You can use the same thing with an art journal, card or whatever. I use a simple pen, but you can use an archival pen too.


Basic Process

  1. Use a watercolor paper
  2. Choose 1-3 in spray, 1 embossing and 1 magical in the same tone
  3. Use the palest colors first and the darkest after. Blend the color with water and brush and dry at the same time.
  4. When it's dry, you can use the magical and pen to add texture with your doodle lines
  5. It's very important to follow the "wave" and to not put it everywhere. Create a movement in your background
  6. At the end, add another texture with a mixture of embossing powder and gel medium on a stencil. I love this effect, it's very special.
  7. You can add some stamps to finalize


I’ve created a step-by-step video if you want to watch the entire process and create with me.

Here are some close-ups of my background and finished layout

We want you to be inspired by our words inspiration and to EXPLAIN how it inspired you! You also have to include our creative challenge to your creation.
Word Inspiration - FUTURE

 Here's my take on it:
 My layout represents what I would like for the FUTURE. I wish my family could live in harmony, love and help each other. We work hard to get there and I trust the future. For our creative challenge, I added some little STARS here and there.
