Don't forget to Smile - Card - DT Scrapberry's

Hello Everyone, it's my day over at Scrapberry's and we have started something new there. Every 7 days, you will get a video tutorial showcasing all the awesome stuff Scrapberry's has to offer. I made a video tutorial about how you can use the Scrapberry's Ink Stain stamp pad to create backgrounds to your cards.
I've used the "Forest Friends" collection for my card along with stamps for the "PhotoArchive".


And as promised I made a video tutorial on how I put together this card. I hope you like it.


The Stains ink has loads of great uses, you can spritz them with water and get an awesome look. Maybe that's something for my next Scrapberry's tutorial. 

I'm joining in these challenges with my card:

Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Everyone! Today I have a little canvas piece to share with you. I made this of my littlest boy, just for fun.. It's not often I make something just for fun since I usually make a lot of DT work, but this time I also added a video tutorial of my piece.

I played with some of awesome Prima Flowers, Blue Fern Studio Chipboards and used a lot of mixed media products like the new Lindy's Magical Shakers.

There's a lot of details on it, I used modeling paste in the background, with the magical shakers and Color Blooms. I also did some stamping and golden embossingpowder.

If you would like to see how I made this please take a look at the video below. :)


I've put my finished canvas with some of my favorite pieces I've made. 

I'm joining in these challenges with my canvas:




I got inspired with by the colors and textures of the moodboard.



Thank you so  much for stopping by my blog today! :) Have a fantastic creative sunday! :)

H is for Hummingbird - 52 Card Challenge

Hello everyone.. So Maremi - Marta Lapkowska has this great Creative Cafe on facebook where you can share your love for all things Art, and she started this great challenge where you alter a playing card making this super sweet ATC like treasures. So I wanted to join in because it's a great to explore and expand your own creative boundries. Anyways.. I starting at the end of the line, not with the first card with the letter A, but with letter H... And H is for Hummingbirds..


So as an additonal twist I thought.. why don't I do a video tutorial of every card I make? Hopefully I will make all 52 cards.. that means 52 videos.. Here's my card:

The card is made out of Prima's Alphabet Cards and is the same size as playing cards. I've used a image transfer technique to transfer the bird witch I found on pintrest. I can't draw if my life depended on it.. and used watercolors to color the bird.. You can watch the whole proccess in the video below.


I will have to play "catch up" to get caught up from A-G so hopefully there will be some more videos in the next weeks or soo.. could be months too... let's not rule anything out.. 

So there you have it, my first card for the challenge. :) Hope you liked my tutorial and thank you for visiting my blog today! Have a great creative day!

Special - Layout - DT Scrapberry's

Hello my lovelies! Yesterday it was my turn over at the Scrapberry's blog. I made a layout this time I would like to share with you:


I used the "Words Live Forever" collection from Scrapberry's and some bits and pieces from the "Primavera" collection. I aslo added some old bookpages and doilies.

I started my page with embossing some starts with a stamp from Northstar Stamps. I used white ink to add the script with another background stamp, but this one is from Prima. I splattered some white dylusions ink and some glimmer glam "Rockin on Sunshine" to add some more interest.


I ended up not using any flowers on this, just paper embellishment, rhinestones and resins. All from Scrapberry's. Do you spot the super cute flair button?

The resin are from an older Scrapberry's collection, but you could still get them. It's from the "Vintage Circus" collection. I think the carousell was cute as my little Finnley is sleeping in my lap.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, for more inspiration with Scrapberry's products. Please go check out the blog. Hugs!

Sisters - Layout - DT Wild Orchid Crafts

Hello everyone! Back today with another share, today I'm up on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog with a layout to share. I had so much fun making this layout. Let me tell you all about it!

These are my sisters, way back when I was young.. hahaha.. Well.. The picture is about 15-16years old I guess and just a fun memory to scrapbook, because that's what it's all about isn't it? So I made this layout at a crop, this was a challenge and you had to finish in one hour. I used about 45minutes to come up with the idea and making it happen.

The challenge was to use purple, you had to borrow something from your neighbour and use some embossing dry or wet. So I did a bit of mixed media on the background like adding modeling paste, mists and some stamping and of course embossing. You don't know how rushed you feel when you are trying to dry mist and wet medium and making a decent layout at the same time. All in one hour.


I used some of the white open roses and some Pretty Flori - Anemone flowers from Wild Orchid and adding a soda can opener just for fun. I also borrowed some of the punchinella from my neighbor Kjersti at the crop and stapled them on.


I added some large magnolias, anemone and roses to my project, of course from Wild Orchid. The flowers are really good quality flowers and perfect for any project.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Would love to hear what you think. Have a great creative day! :)

Fabolous - Layout - Guest Designer - Our Mixed Media Moods

This group is hosted by the ever so talented DeeDee Catron, the owner of UmWow Studios and Designer of the most awesome 7Dots Studio Paper Collections and "Mixed Media Jenn" - Jenn Engle who has an amazing amount of followers on her youtube channel.


The way this works is that Jenn and DeeDee posts a new moodboard to get our creative juices flowing every month at the 20th. Their inspirational projects comes with a video tutorial. I've been so lucky to be working on the moodboard for february. Let's take a look at it. 



This is what I created with the moodboard: 

I kept to the color scheme using grey, black, teals browns.. This is such a fun photo. My good friend took this of me, her husband and mine when we where in Scotland.. All with our phones, ready to take some turist photos!

Since the "Our Mixed Media Moods" are based on tutorial videos I made one just for this project. Would you like to see how I made this layout? Please take a look at the video.



Just for fun I added the little plastic parts from an old Xbox 360. I also added some gorgeous star confetti from UmWow Studio. They are made of awesome quality. The stars are a direct inspiration from the moodboard.

Mixed Media Altered Paintbrush - DT Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo

We are mid month and that means a new reveal over at the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo challenge blog! This month is all about paintbrushes! It's such a cool theme and I had really fun making this project.


This is what I came up with for this challenge: 

I've altered a cheep paint brush using Finnabair's awesome gesso's and Prima's Colorblooms.. I also played with the IOD's molds and Finnabair's Art Supplies. 

I sprayed with the Colorblooms - Deep Teal and Brimstone. Added loads of Art Stones, flowers and different type of flowers. I also used some of the melange pebbels and Finnabiar nobs. I sprinkled some microbeads in black to add some deepth to the brush. 


I really loved this cross witch is a Relic and Artifacts from Sandra Evertson. Like I said in my last post, I've been using them more and more lately.. probably influenced by my good friend Heather Thompson and all the Muse girls.

I used a mould to make this piece. I used it when the clay was still wet so I could add it around the brush. A little pebble in the center was a perfect fit. I painted on top with the metallique paints - Ancient Coin.

Would you like to take part in the challenge? Please take a look at the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo blog for challenge rules, info and prizes.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Would love to hear what you think! :)

Crescent Moon Dreamcatcher - Artists Live Ustream Show

Every month I'm up on the Artists Live Ustream Channel and I re-create a project in a Live free class. The show airs every monday at 20.00 CET. This time, I made a Crescent Moon Dreamcatcher using a whole range of Finnabair's mixed media projects.

Using an embroidery hop for my dreamcatcher circle and loads of ribbons, Sandra Evertson Relics to put together this 6" Dreamcatcher.

I used Finnabair's black gesso, white gesso, Soft matte gel, Art Stones and Mini Art Stones to make the insides of the dreamcatcher. Everything is colored with the Oil Pastels from Prima. Would you like to see who I made this, you can watch the recording of the show.



Remember this is just a recording of the show so there will be some interaction with the audience watching on the day it's recorded. 

I just love the Sandra Evertson Relics and Artifacts and have worked a bit with them these past months. I painted these with black gesso and added oil pastels to color and finished off with Viva Decor - Inka Gold - Old Silver. The ribbon is colored with Color Bloom - Deep Teal, Tea Stain and White Frost.


The moon is die-cutted out of the crescent moon and stars dies from Tim Holtz. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.. would love to hear what you think about my dreamcatcher. Have a great Valentine's Day! - Yasmin
