'Dreamer' for Mixed Media & Art

Hello dear readers!
I'm back to show you my new page created with the dark fantastical
moodboard we have for you this month at Mixed Media & Art.


I used some Blue Fern Studios paper and some large butterflies to create a dark
page full of dreams and fantasies.

Here is our moodboard:

I was inspired by the vintage mood, the birds nest and the winged things.
You can find out how to enter the challenge here.

Here are a few close ups:

I hope you feel inspired, 
Until next month,

'be still' for Art Playground

Hello girls,  hope everyone is doing well and finding time to get creative!
I was invited to be Guest Designer again over at Art Playground, a
wonderful challenge blog owned by the super talented
and super sweet Sharon Ziv.
This month's palette had some soft warm browns and I decided to try
a page in a minimalist and very nature oriented theme.

'be still...'

I started with a paper called 'Seeds of Love' from the Vintage Artistry collection
by 49 & Market. I love the grey subtle background print of leaves and it set the mood
for my page. I added some lace, a couple of tags, some feathers and a few
pine cones and acorns from my backyard.

Here is the challenge for October.

More information on how to enter here.

Here are a few close ups:

A bit of a different style for me...although it's hard not to layer on lots of colors
and mediums, I still like how it turned out :) Can't wait to see your interpretation!
I love Sharon's blog, there are some super talented designers and of course
great prizes to be won!
See you soon!
Hugs, Lisa xo

'I Heard You Singing' for Mixed Media & Art

Hello my sweet friends!
I am so honoured to be able to stay on the wonderful team at
Mixed Media & Art challenge blog for another term!
The moodboards that Olya Kravets creates are marvelous and always spark my creativity.
She is such a talented crafter and her work is amazing!

'I Heard You Singing'


I love vintage styled art, it melts my heart to work with time worn antique style elements.
I started with some old sheet music and added lots of Lindy's Stamp Gang
mists, stamping, an old baroque style frame, lots of flowers and le piéce
de résistance - a vintage enamel butterfly pin I found at an estate sale :)

Here is the mood board for this month:

To find out more about how to join our challenge, win wonderful prizes and 
see some of the most jaw-dropping gorgeous art check out the challenge here.

I would like to enter my project in a challenge blog called Scrap-Chip, they 
have a challenge this month to use the color brown and chipboard, here I have used 
a 2 Crafty Chipboard vine piece that I painted black and then rubbed with gold
metallic paint.

More info on this challenge here.

 Here are a few close ups:

I added some stenciling with a Prima stencil and some gloss gel, 
then I rubbed some Prima gold metallic paint to bring out the textures.

I was inspired by the colors, the moths and all the gold in our moodboard....
Sometimes I sift through all my photos to find just the right one to use,
and I found this one that I had printed of my mum and her mum,
but I had mistakenly printed over it a photo of me holding my baby boy,
and I just thought it would be neat, and the colors are perfect.

See you next month,
Hugs, Lisa xox

'Delight' for Scrapki Wyzwaniowo

Hello friends!
Although it's still sweltering hot down here in the south, I can hardly wait for fall;
cool breezes, the crispness of autumn and the changing colors on the trees.
That's what I felt inspired by to create this page for
Scrapki Wyzwaniowo this month and our new theme - leaves!


I've scrapped this photo before but I couldn't help using it again, it's one of my
favorites, the colors just make me so happy! I used some 7 Dots Studio paper
from the 'Dreamscapes' collection, together with some fall fabric
leaves I bought at Michael's and some Dusty Attic chipboards that I won
from More than Words .
Here is our challenge:

For more info on how to enter, please go here.

I would like to enter my layout in the October challenge at Dusty Attic:

 More info on this challenge here.
I was inspired by the autumn mood and the orange red and yellow leaves.
I used Dusty Word Pack 32 and Dusty Attic Leafy Frame Set.

Here are a few close ups:


Thanks for visiting,
Hugs, Lisa xo
