‚Camelot’ treasures reveal right now…


King Arthur would be proud if he knew that he is patron of May’s Studio Calico ‚CAMELOT’ kits! This month we are moving into fairytale land of magical patterns and mixed media feeling areas. If you remember my SUBJECTIVE MOOD BOARD you will see how much I was inspired by this mozaic!


This is my main inspiration – ‚CAMELOT’ scrapbook main kit! Below you can find my two [Main Kit Only] pages;

I hope you will like them 🙂

pssst I love you

Above there are lots of mixed-media actions using gesso, gel medium, watercolours, neocolor crayons… all of them with tutorials full of details you can find at MIXED MEDIA classes at Studio Calico.

The good news is, that you can still sign in during the upcoming THREE days (till the end of April) and you will always be able to access the class material, even after the class has ended.

I had no idea how important you will be in my life

Another mixed media work – the power of colour. The main inspiration was mix of photos and this fabulous yellow paper which you can find in the scrapbook main kit, or you can buy an extra ‚More Patternred Paper’ kit to get more (BTW – this yellow paper has awesome B side with beautiful PINK) 🙂

Now my other pages – I mixed here some elements of ‚Camelot’ main kit with scrapbook add-ons:

  • Guinevere – I think that this is my favourite add-on this month. I love the colours inside and various embellishments which you can find inside.
  • Excalibur – very rich kit, full of feminine add-ons. Was composed by Maggie Holmes who created an amazing mini album using these things! If you are insterested in second part of MINI BOOK classes – you will need this kit, so… you have to rush 🙂



  • Merlin – the second embellishment add-on in the Studio Calico family. I have three favourite things inside it – an alphabet, inspiring stamp and awesome woodgrain tape!

And here are my add-on pgrojects 🙂

I would like to remind you that if you are still not a member of this class – you can! Nothing is lost! You can still sign up till the end of April! Mixed Media skills are evergreen – you can use them in your projects no metter what kind of kit you will get each month or you can hide them for a minute in your scrapbook toolbox 🙂 We are waiting for you there with Celine and our fabulous contributors, join us.

Now I just want to let you know that I have to disappear for a while. I hope I will come back to you for a reveal time. You know – Easter is coming, there will be a huge party for 15 person, someone have to prepare everything, cook, hide tiny eggs in the grass for kids 🙂 I won’t forget about you and we will stay in touch on Instagram and Facebook, see you there!


Say ‚hello’ to April :: mini album

Today I want to share with you my latest mini album which was prepared for my mixed-media classes in Barcelona (Conesa). Tomorrow I will be teaching the same project in Prague – I can’t wait to meet with my Czech friends! It will be my first workshop in this beautiful country and everything is organized my Anna Norman from Paper Amo 🙂

Anna-Maria mini book

I think that it’s a good time to show you this mini book. I created it using fabulous materials from my great sponsores: Studio Tekturek, October Afternoon and my beloved – Studio Calico. I used this amazing, BRAND NEW line designed by Studio Tekturek for this project and my girls are FIRST in the whole world who get these papers! How cool is that?!

One Way Ticket

In this project I mixed various kinds of letterpress techniques and different watercolour media like mists, sprinklers, custom watercolour, Neocolor Crayons (woodless watercolour crayons) and colour inks. This mini is made in typical workshop ‚style’ – but I hope that you will like it anyway 🙂 These are the pages:









I was so happy during classes in Barcelona when my fabulous students were creating their albums! It’s one of the best things in this job – watching like ‚my girls’ are growing! 🙂 Love it. Anyway – this is not the end of this post.

+     +     +

I prepared a small giveaway for my new Pinterest and Instagram followers and for all of my hitherto followers as well. I have TWO ‚TODAY’ letterpress plates designed by Studio Calico!!! YAY!
