'Wonderful....' a new layout for Art Playground!

Good morning my crafty friends!
Have you seen the wonderful new blog called Art Playground yet?
I have followed Sharon Zlv - she goes by Noomish,
for quite a while now.... her dreamy totally gorgeous
layouts are so beautiful and inspiring and I love her romantic style.
You can find her Youtube channel here.
Well, she has started her new challenge site where I have been truly blown away by
some of the art from her design team, and she asked me to Guest Design with the
July moodboard and this is what I created....


I used some Blue Fern Studios paper from the 'Tattered Walls' collection together with an
old Blue Fern Studios title chippie and round chipboard wreath from my stash, and then added lots of watercolor splashes and 49 & Market flowers. The theme this month is 'Tell Your Story',
and the way I do that with my pages is by using old family it is my grandparents.
Using these photos mean a lot to me as I don't have that many of them, and they are a way
to connect with my family past and keep their memories alive.

Here is the July palette:

For more info on how to join in the challenge please go here.
I really enjoy looking at every post on this blog, and I hope you help me 
support Sharon on her new adventure...we all love a good challenge don't we?
I know my creative juices start flowing when I see a wonderful color combo
or thought - provoking theme.

Thank you so much Sharon for the invitation!

Here are a few close ups:

I hope I have inspired you to tell your story?...
come and play with us!

'Upon a shore....'

Hello my dear readers! 
It's my turn to inspire you with the new summer moodboard at 
Mixed Media & Art! I loved the summer theme and couldn't wait to create
my project inspired by the peace and calm of the ocean.

'Upon the shore....'

I bought some seashells, dried roots and some kind of netting that looks like
a fisherman's net at Hobby Lobby where I also found a little photo frame in the shape 
of a starfish, cute right? I covered the back of a canvas with Prima white crackle paste,
then used some light watercolors and then set about gluing down my frame,
the netting and then lots of seashells and some Prima flowers and Prima art stones.

The July moodboard:

More info on how to join our challenge this month is here.

I was also totally in love with a challenge one of my favourite blogs, 
More Than Words.... which was to be inspired by the word 'beach' and to use real shells! 
This photo of my little man daydreaming was taken on one of our summer vacations.....
we are counting down the days until we go to Florida in a few weeks, I can't wait!
I always comb the beach for treasures and try to take a few home with me.

More info on this challenge here.

Here are a few close ups:

I hope everyone is having some wonderful summer adventures,
much love,

'Shine' a new layout for Scrapki Wyzwaniowo

Hello friends!
I'm back to share the layout I designed with our July theme at Scrapki Wyzwaniowo, the sun!
I hope everyone is enjoying summer so far, here in the South we are in full swing,
and we're spending lots of time in the pool to cool off.


I was so thrlled to receive my DT package from Tusia, filled with two new 7 Dots Studio
collections, 'Air Mail' and 'Garden Party'. For this page I used the papers
from the 'Garden Party' and I ripped up a few of them and glued some strips down the
middle of my page, and then I cut out a lot of butterflies from one of the papers and
colored then with watercolors. I also used a stencil from the 'Air Mail' collection on
my background with some black gesso and also the stamps from the 'Garden Party'.
You can check out the new collections here.

Here is this month's theme...

I hope to see you join in, there's always great prizes of the new collections!
More info on how to enter here.

Here are a few close ups:

I also used a large ornate frame and some oversized letters from 2 Crafty Chipboard,
and painted them with black watercolor paint. 

Thanks for looking, see you soon,
Lisa xo
