We are wrapping up our month-long April Showers theme with a delightful image that inspired a soft, lovely palette and a topic-focused Designer's Challenge: Create a project that focuses on siblings or pets.
With 3 cats in the household, I immediately chose to focus on pets. Don't think I have any pics of my brother and I that are worth scrapping.
As you can see, I am once again into printing the photo on canvas. With a sleepy cat like our old Bettie having a nap in the sun, the image turned out wonderfully hazy. The inspirational photo inspired me to use soft and hazy tones and textures in my page.
The papers are mainly Prima Jack and Jill, I used 2 of the same pps so that I could cut out a frame that I mounted on top of the other pp. I had seen a layout by Gerry v Gent in which she used Gesso mixed with "sand" applied as extra texture. I had an old jar of something called "snowpaint", cannot even remember what I had planned to use it for. It has the same texture. That's the thick, rough white inner frame that goes around the page.
The yellow is TA mist in Lemon Grass, different green and chestnut chalks used on the frame and matting. Everything in the cluster is from Prima.
That's all folks! Thank you so very very much for your visit! It would make my day if you would want to leave any comment! Todeloo! xxx
Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world! My name is Eila Sandberg and I live in Sweden's capital called Stockholm on the east coast by the Baltic Sea. My family is a small one; it's me and my very supportive and patient husband and our 3 cats - Max, Alice and Elsa. I have a grown-up stepdaughter. My friends kindly let me scrap their children if I need willing guinea pigs for a layout. My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden. I am an Anglofile and love everything beautiful, London is my favourite city in the whole world. I've been sort of dabbling with scrapping since 2009 but more seriously so since 2010. Scrapping is a wonderful way for me to gain balance and happiness in my otherwise very stressful office life, I scrap mainly 12 x 12 layouts. Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments make me very happy!
