triangle challenge

Welcome in the begining of the new week! I just start my four-days vacation with friends  in my country house, so I probably won’t have an internet 🙂 Well… I think I find some outside the wood when I would like to past some pictures on my Facebook page 🙂 I can’t leave you for so long!!! But you have to understand that I need to celebrate every last bit of the last week of summer vacation…

Ahahhahaahha, ok I know, nobody will cry 🙂

I have something special for you today. We have a new ‚designer challenge’ on Lily Bee blog. It’s a Melissa Stinson’s choice. The TRIANGLES challenge – so you simply have to use some triangles and be inspired by them in your works.
This is my ‚triangle’ layout made with Lily Bee products:

I used Lily Bee lines (Double Dutch and Buttercup) and my favourite Freckled Fawn washi tape 🙂

I also cut a series of triangles out of a small piece of patterned paper and backed a few of those openings with contrasting colors. Yet another great way to incorporate this trendy shape 🙂

yeees!!! I forgot about SODAlicious wood veneer chevrons and chevron stamp.

And now it’s your turn! Create a layout of your own using triangles and upload it to Lily Bee Flickr gallery to be entered to win a fabulous prize package! There are a few rules which you will find on Lily Bee blog 🙂

boyish ‚Craftsman’ layout

As I promised – today I present you the second ‚Craftsman’ collection layout. This time it will be simple, boyish page. The truth is that when I received the Prima package, and saw this line I had no idea how to use it… It such situations my but is always rescued by an exellent work by someone else. This time was quite similar. I used a wonderful ‚star’ page made by Marcy Penner – the master of simple composition, and I made my own version. It was my firsdt ‚Craftsman’ page so I had to be careful with patterns.

I use a beige cardstock as a base; all other papers are coming from ‚Craftsman’ collection by Prima Marketing

the stars are hand-cut (!!!!) yeah! 🙂

And now I have an announcement for you. You loooove Chic Tags, don’t you?! 🙂 I a news for you, Chic Tags has 20 new iteams for Autumn & Christmas!!! If you are curious how they look like just click HERE. I adore them! These are a few novelties:

feminine side of the ‚Craftsman’

You already know this awesome collection as the best for your men – it’s true, the papers are made for them but I would like to show you the feminine side of this collection.

Just to remind you, here is the poster of the ‚Craftsman’ goodies:

What do you like the most? Well my favorites are the bulbs and the beautiful stamps! They are so purposeful and they fit everything 🙂 The paper palette is really cool, I looove the navy shades on it… also the browns looks good. Now it’s time for girlish layout. Say what you want but I think that the ‚Craftsman’ collection is simply designed for feminine pages! Look!

I added the resist flower canvas, some stamped leaves and the spots of gold glitter…

Here and there I used a little gesso and washi tapes form Freckled Fawn as well as  watercolour paint! They give the layout an artsy touch 🙂

Ok, so add the girlish things like: flowers, delicate stamps and a piece of vellum… also you will have to use a very girly photo for the best results 🙂 Tomorrow I will show you the second ‚Craftsman’ page – this time it will be boyish edition!

reminiscences

I still haven’t shown you my all Prima Mrkating CHA layouts… I think there will be more than one post with these works in the coming days. Today I would like to present you one of the most romantic lines of all in this Prima’s season. ‚Tea-Thyme’ Collection is full of roses and pale garden’s colours:

I used the greenish papers and some roseish for my ‚Tea-Thyme’ layout with these sweet childrens: My son Jan and our lovely princess Lea:

I used a lot of different mediums here: the gesso, enamel effects, chalk inks, pencil, mists…

I loooove thesse tiny little crystals which look like scattered randomly here…

…and a pretty lady-bug charm 🙂
