Baby photoshoot

My cousin recently had her second baby girl, so when they came over to our house, I decided to take couple of pictures of the new-born and her sister. This is how they turned up:

ColorConspiracy - Texturize 2.0 collection

Finally I got the chance to work with these fantastic papers from ColorConspiracy. Although I have all three new collection at home now, for this layout I used only Texturized 2.0 collection and it was fun!

On the grey one I used a little bit of gesso, and some embossing powder with glitter from Stampendous. Then I painted the gesso with watercolors in purple shades. 

Underneath the photo I used some solid coloured cardstock and two shades of tissue paper, paper doily, and coloured thread. 

Around the photo I made circle from Queen Co goosebumps and candy stripers.

The title "beautiful" is made out of some old BasicGrey chipboards 
sprayed with purple spray and finished with Glossy Accents. 

...and of course some thickers alphabet.

Have a lovely day,

Challenge - 4 Elements

My favourite element is definitely water. BUT for this challenge at Papero amo I found one old black and white picture from some school trip to Great Britain - and it had Stonehange on it. This made it pretty clear - I HAVE to do the EARTH. 

I used white cardstock and made the background with gesso, Mr. Huey´s brown spray and gold paint. Under the photo I used gold paper, vellum, thick cardboard, twine, 
and some wrapping paper. 

The title "Stone" is made out of BasicGrey´s Hipster collection alphabet (that I alsolutely adore), and "henge" is made out of thickers from Amy Tangerine. 

Couple of enamel dots at the end always makes it look good...

Have a lovely day,

Creative kit - July

July Creative kit from Papero amo feels like far away places and summer night sky. The main part of the kit consists of the Atlantic Collection by Studio Calico. So far I made only one layout with the kit, but there is more to come! :)

You are....

I used the lovely vellum paper called "Jamestown" with the pattern of the stars, some lovely epoxy brads, cork alphabet from Little Yellow Bicycle, enamel dots, gesso and watercolours for the backround, and Hemptique hemp cord.

Have a lovely day,

Glitter flower card

Today I decided to make a tissue paper flower with a splash of glitter :)

1. I cut out couple of circles from tissue paper and then cut out a spiral out of them and made it into a flower.

2. I did apply some Glossy Accents on the top of the petals.

3. Then I dabbed the flower into the glitter.

4. Let it dry..

And made this card with it - used some Garn und Mehr twine and Scrapperin stamp :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Grill party

Summer parties are in the full swing, so it was time to document some of the lovely things we were having :)


For the backround I used white textured cardstock, and I spayed it with Mr. Huey´s Manila spray. Title is made out fo thickers from Amy Tangerine.

For the PARTY title I used white thickers with Glossy Accents on top - and sprinkled it with some glitter.  by the way, I never thought I will be a glitter girl, but it happened and I´m loving it!

Under the first photo I tucked these fantatci cork embelishments from Little Yellow Bicycle and I also used some vellum stickers from Studio Calico. 

For the second photo I used a "real life" embeslishment - I saved these bottle caps from some special belgium beers and flattened them with little hammer. 

Have a lovely day and thanks for reading!

Sketch inspiration

Once in a couple months I have to make a sketch for our Papero amo blog. Although I love using one photo on the layout, I decided it would be more useful for other girls to make a two-photo sketch.

I created a simple page with photos of my cousins´ winter wedding.

The page is created mostly with Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection papers.
I LOVE the colors!

What I enjoyed most while creativng this layout was making of the title (princess in czech language) - it is made out of  Thickers from Amy Tangerine. I layed them out on the scrap piece of paper and then spayed it with orange Mr. Huey´s. Then I lifted all the letters and reposioned them just a touch and pressed them down again. This created sort of a white shadow.

I cut out feathers from the coloured tissue paper, and one from basic white cardstock using a template from my previous DIY. The white feather I wrapped in turqoise Garn und Mehr twine.

The rest of the title is made out of various stiker aplhabets 
and Echo park Sweet girl paper pad.

As always, I HAD to use couple of enamel dots in various colours,
 and the journaling was made on my lovely old typewriter.

Have a lovely day and thanks for dropping by :)

Scrap card

How much scraps of different cardstock and papers you have lying around? If you are like me, than your answer is probably - too many! Some times I just have to MAKE myself to take that box out and create something just from scraps. 

This time I dug out only grey paper scraps and made this simple card with vellum feathers.

Make this your monthly challege and try to use your scraps every once in while - you will be surprised, what kind of treasures are there waiting for you :)

Have a lovely day,Anna

Froassage card

Couple weeks ago I made this Clean and Simple card using the froassage technique. 

This technique is about smashing piece of paper into a ball, and then folding it out again. 
After that you apply water on the paper to make it soft, and then you apply distress ink, especially in the cracks on the paper. It creates nice distress and vintage look of the paper. You let the whole thing dry and then use on the project.

Have a lovely day :)
