Summer Inspiration *with video

Happy Sunday dear friends!
Today I want to share a little bit of Summer inspiration!

During Summer vacation and between swimming in the dreamy sea
 I found the time to alter this cute small spatula I found in the beach house.
Of course what would be more perfect for this project
 than the ColourArte products? :)

I won't share much of the process, you can see everything in my video.

I hope you will enjoy it and get inspired!

Create opportunities - Denim Journal with Video

Hello sweet friends! 
Today I'm hosting the Finnabair blog with a page in my Denim Journal.



I loved this photo the moment I found it on Pinterest and of course I wanted to make a page with it in my new Denim Journal :)
I used only a few media like the Light Paste,(I adore the beautiful texture it creates), Black Gesso and Mica Powders.


In order to start building my page and create the main cluster I used a chipboard leftover.
I always keep these goodies, for me they are the best pieces to give more interest to my pages.
I applied some Light Paste here and there on the chipboard too, to help the beautiful colors of the Mica Powders stick on there.

To decorate my page I used some cute brads (stars and screws) to secure the ends of the wire and 7Dots Studio stickers. I also used my stapler on the photo, stickers and wire.

To give more interest to the background I used some stamps here and there and made splashes with the Black Heavy Gesso.




I share all the details and the whole process in my video, I hope you will enjoy it :)

Colorchart book for ColourArte - making the cover

Happy Sunday dear friends!
Time for some inspiration with video tutorial for ColourArte!


I created this cute little book with file folders. 
You will see at my video how to add more pages using a file folder, scissors and a cropadile,
as well how I created the cover of the book.

I'm already using this book as a colorchart with all my ColourArte products.
The file folders were perfect for this project, because they have these cute labels overhanging and help me find the categories of the color products in no time!


I hope you will enjoy the video and get inspired!
