Messy Monday

A new week starts. We are taking a small road trip to the Belgian seaside and I can't wait to spend some fun time with the kids and my husband. Nothing special, just sand and sea. 
Today I have two layouts to show you and some phone photos. The first layout was created with the Scraptastic April kit: Worth Wondering. I used lots of messy techniques. Some of the products were: gesso, neocolor2 crayons, Izink inks. There is a short video (sorry no explanations as I was a tired and my voice was acting up).

The second was created for the Glitz Design blog where this week we are focusing on SPRING/EASTER. I started off by applying gesso to the background and adding a doily and some butterflies. Then I used my Izink inks. Really love how this layout turned out. 


And some pics of my boys ..

Video Sunday

It is Sunday which means VIDEO time.
I made two videos with my last kit from Scraptastic Kit club. I'll show the second tomorrow. Today's layout is based on a grid design but I took a more approach and didn't worry to much about straight lines and accurate measurements. I hope you enjoy it. Tomorrow's video will show some "messy" techniques. So don't forget to pop by.

All in a song ...

This week on the Glitz Design blog our creations are inspired by music. I used the lyrics of a song by Christina Perri called "Human".
I am a huge music fan, play a couple of instruments and used to sing in a choir and follow singing lessons. Music has played an important part in my life as I met my husband though it. He joined the brass band I was playing in. Even now I still treasure music and I am always listening to something when I scrap. I love all styles from pop to jazz and classical music. I picked the lyrics of a song by Christina Perri for this layout. A song which reminds me I am only human and that I don’t need to be a “perfect” wife, mum, teacher, … that I can make mistakes and learn from them. Let music inspire you, comfort you, motivate you … it is was makes it so special.

My last kit ...

Yes. April is my last month at Scraptastic Kit Club. I have decided to stop for the time being. I really want to work on my online classes which will start this summer. I am planning on doing at least 2 full online classes a year which will consist of 5 videos around one topic (pdf files to with each video and freebies). This first will be about LAYERING as that has been one of the techniques a lot of people have been asking me questions about. I'll do one or two smaller classes throughout the year as well. The larger classes will be sold at 10€ (about 14$).

This month I got the Worth Wondering kit. I made 5 layouts with it. I'll be showing two today and have a video for another two. The 5th will go live on the Scraptastic blog on Monday.


Check back in tomorrow for my layout which was on the GLITZ DESIGN blog this week and Sunday will be video day. I'll also blog about my trip to Paris on Sunday so stay tuned.
