This week, our inspiration challenge is Focus on Design. It’s something whimsical and fun! So check out the colors, read the challenge and start hunting through your stash!
The palette made me think of our glorious hols on Cyprus some years ago and also that I had a tiny stash of treasured K&Co Blue Awning scraps. Girls, I really mean SCRAPS, that's why there are only strips of the pps.
I've been wanting to try some misting on silkpaper for a while, unfortunately the gold comes out as yellow and the blue is not very blue either. I just loooove the blue patterned border and the golden rim of the other cup in the inspirational photo. The silver grey is the clam with two large pearls made of liquid pearl. The floating fluffy clouds inspired me to emboss transparency in shimmering opaque and outline it with gold Stickles. A smiling cherub reclining on the felt clouds is a reminder of the Greek sculptures.
Overall, I'm not particularly pleased with how my page turned out but what the heck, it's just for fun! Thanks very very much for having a peek, any comments are truly appreciated!
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!
