Cherish (Prima)

Dear crafty friends,

Today, on the Prima Blog, we feature stencils. 

I love Finn’s new stencils! The patterns are just so intricate and detailed. 

They are perfect for adding subtle texture on the background of any creation. 

For this layout, I chose the Tapestry stencil, that I used with Modeling Paste and I brushed Soft Satin Metallique paint over the pattern. 

I also used the Wild Berries with a sponge and Adobe House ink, just to add a soft pattern.

I love the end result. 

My son chose the collection and the papers for this layout. I think he did pretty good, don't you?


Thanks for looking,
Have a nice crafty day,

A Pink Layout (Prima)

Hello peeps,

It's been a long time since I've updated my blog. My life had been crazy those days, so I'm not as present online. But anyways, here is a layout I made for the pink inspiration on the Prima blog today.

I’m not a huge fan of pink layouts. I often have a lot of difficulties to work with this color. This time, I figured that I could use a dusty pink (in French, we say «vieux rose») and it was enough to spark my creativity. 

It inspired me to use this vintage photo of my aunt and her mother. Dusty pink is her favorite color.

I used the beautiful Lavender Frost collection. I love the more neutral backgrounds in that collection. They are the perfect background for about every layout!
