Good Friday evening! I've been busy packing some scrapbooking stuff as we have a small get together tomorrow! I can't wait for some special scrappy time!
But here's a never before seen page I originally made for PaperHaus magazine, but as the new issue never came out, I can share it with you now. I made it to mixed media gallery to show another kind of mixed media piece. When I think about mixed media I usually tend to gravitate towards gesso but this time I wanted to do something different. So I gathered a bunch of different drawing tools and made big flowers in the background of the layout.
I started with a pencil and then used the Design Memory Craft Pitt pens to draw the blooms and leaves. For the coloring I used the Gelatos and smeared them with my fingers. I also added some mists to the background. On top of that I layered some fuzzy cut and die cut shapes. I also added different flowers and other embellishments to the mix.
The topic is my little one who's not so little anymore. I guess every parent knows what I'm talking about when I say that three years have just flown by. Well, to be honest the last five years have just flown by. It was just yesterday when we got home from the hospital with our younger daughter and a day before that we got home with your first born. And actually it has been five and half and three and half years.
The two of them are my greatest accomplishment by far, if you can call your kids your accomplishment. But I have to say that I'm over the moon about the great surprise I found from the Prima blog yesterday. I'm one of the guest designers! I can hardly believe it! It's going to be a long year waiting for next June!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a great weekend!
Ps. Haminan kurssi on valitettavasti peruttu, sillä kurssille vaadittu kuuden osallistujan määrä ei täyttynyt. Ihanaa kesää kaikille ja ottakaahan yhteyttä, jos syksyllä olisi kiinnostusta kurssille! Yhden kurssin päivä on jo lyöty lukkoon, siitä tulee pian lisäinfoa!
