a new home

Hi dear girls (and boys are also welcome here). I am at the seaside right now, but the weather is veeeery windy today so we returned to our room. It’s three o’clock in Poland and we were already three times by the sea, we had a lovely, looong walk, we ate a bowl of dill soup and thats all… 🙂 awesome vacation 🙂 I wish we will have a sun in this week…

OK, I am here to show you my SODAlicious layout made on ‚one, two, three, angle’ paper.

I use a few SODAlicious supplies, stamps, gesso, modelling paste and paint (ok, and Prima Marketing crystals).

the layout has a lot of layers, really – I know, they are almost invisible at the photo; well they are so subtle…

If you would like to see more works on ‚one, two, three angle’ you have to go on SODAlicious blog!

Wish me a good weather, please!!! I was waiting a whole year for this seaside week!!! I need more SUN!!! 🙂 kisses :***

Scrapidées sketch & I

Hello my dearest readers!!! I have something special for you today – a special, super-easy sketch which I made specially for French challenge blog: Scrapidees! Thank you so much girls for inviting me to be your guest for sketch no. 240.

So now… I encourage you to take this challenge! French-speaking ladies – you can find the whole description on Scrapidees blog, and you my English-speaking reader – I have also something for you 🙂

Today’s map is supposed to transfer you into the world of classic art composition – to the times of „golden division”. This rule is a classic basis that always works well and, most important of all, gives us endless possibilities of modification.

Explaining this rule seems to be pointless and ridiculous as we often choose this kind of composition instinctively, unaware of its theorthical backround – it is worth knowing all the same. Well then, „the golden division” is a division of a square (or a rectangle) into nine equal parts with the help of two vertical and two horizontal lines. The points where the liness cross are called „golden centres”. Elements located in these centres are always eye-catching.

For today’s challenge I have chosen a division accentuating the bottom left corner of the square. I know that the map seems overly schematic, boring even, but I do really count on your creativity. I am very curious how far your imagination will carry you as well as what techniques you will decide to apply to modify this composition basis.


In my work I have decided to use the unpredictable power of watercolours and – instead of one big, horizontal photo – two vertical ones. Please, feel invited to take part in the task and try your best with the classic „golden division”.

I’m sorry but I have to show you all the details of this layout… The photo don’t reflect the dicersity of media used here…

oh yes, a lot of Prima things here 🙂 well… I love them :)))

And if like the colours here, and you want to know something more about the whole process I made on such kind of layout, you definitely must take an amazing Through the Kaleidoscope Workshop by Amy Heller on TPiaB, where I am one of the contributors, and I made something  similar to this 🙂
