Challenge Yourself: #50! Color challenge

This month the challenge on Challenge yourself:
a color palette and an added twist, use a heart.
I've made a layout with two schoolpictures with my sisters, using a little quote 'always in my heart'.
This paper is Prima, Rose quarts.

It's a bit of a pitty that the picture doesn't really show how well this layout has turned out. So much background and details, but ok, now it's on my wall in my scraproom and I love it every day   ;)

More than words: tags and birthday

Nice challenge on more than words...








Made a smal canvas. Made tags from al kinds of stuff with the gelli plate. Then put some junk & some flower from the scrap table together on it. Purple was the color of my nice dress.

Me @ 8, holding a birthdaycard. Love that memory.

CY RAISE ME UP

Well have not been blogging for a big time ... to busy working ... but this year I hope that I'll take more time for my health and my creativity ....

On Challenge yourself number 49 is to get inspiration from this song: you Raise me up... super nice.

I've used a picture of my mum and me, on her 86e birthday. A beautiful day. Tried to make a bit of a baroque page, didn't work out like I wished but it is special to me.
Used Kaisercraft, love the brand.

Have a super nice 2018!

Challenge yourself: #41


Challenge yourself #41: a happy moodboard

Moodboards are difficult to me. I don't understand them, so much going on, colours, emotions and stuff, what the *** do I take from it. I'm a very lineair and causal thinker....



This is a good mood board, but it goes everywhere for me...

I've started some project, b&w with blue, an umbrella picture, nothing...

Had some terrible weeks, with my work and family trouble, and then a holiday in Italy. Super but I was ill for 4 days ....

Coming back my apple things (not the healthy apple) didn't work together because of some double indentification ..... grrrrr

Finaly I managed to finished a project, so glad it turned out OK.
Scrapbooking sometimes gives you only fun....

 Have used a picture of me, with my son about 3 days old. Nothing like a small baby to inspire you.

Have a good week!

Challenge yourself: some layouts

Hi all,

Had some problems with blogger, couldn't get into it, because its linked with an old emailadres... pfff

This month on Challenge yourself: use negative space,  such a strong way to make a super layout with a great picture.
For this Challenge I've used the original photo, with little hole's in it, because I used to pin in in the wall above my workspace.
The small amount of paper is Kaisercraft.










The other layout is one I made in january; couldn't post it ;(


Have nice sunny days, spring's coming!

XXX Patricia

Challenge yourself: adventure!

The november challenge on Challenge yourself is super: use a picture of yourself, thankful is the word and use a banner in the layout. On the blog you will find so many very good layout from the design team.

I've used a 10 year old picture from me in Morocco. A co-worker gave this trip to me as a big surprise. I never was in the opportunity to travel a lot, and this was a super trip totally outside of my box!

I've used Prima paper and  left over flowers. The big title was a left from of a Project Life album I made last year.

On the hidden journaling I've put: ' So thankful for the opportunity to travel. I love my adventure in the desert (riding a very big scary camel).

Have a good and warm weekend, Patricia

Challenge #34 Fall

Now there is a super nice challenge on: Challenge yourself. On this blog, with the very energetic owner Sharon Fritchman, you are challenged to make a lovely layout, with a picture of you in it.
Very nice. My scrapbook albums are all immense, but the book of 'me'  was the smallest.Now ... it's growing and I love it, all those memories.

I've made a layout with new paper from Echo Park, ' Fall is in the air'. Used a picture, a sort of selfie, from me in a beautiful woody area, in Bergen, Holland. Nice long walk with super colors and taking lots of mushroom pictures.

Have done a little fusy cutting, I'm not very good at it. The kompas in the background is a little reminder of the fact that I got lost on this walk. Something that happens not very often to me....

The challenge is to use these lovely autumn colors.



Have a good weekend!
