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.

The word is on the zipper-pull; love those small details.

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!

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!

Challeange yourself: Art for inspiration

On Challenge Yourself this month a beautiful and difficult challenge: Art for Inspiration.

I took inspiration from the colors orange and blue, and the mood that is a little melancholy.
I've used pictures from my holiday in Morocco, about 10 years ago.
Did a little backgroundwork and altered some plain flowers.
I've used papers from my large stock ;)

Have a nice summertime!

CY: sketch and summer

On ChallengeYOURself this month:
a fun sketch and theme: SUMMER

I've made this layout with a picture of me in 1971... like 15 of 16! On a beach in Holland, a bit sexy but in fact I was so shy .....
The title shine has to do with the sun: this summer was so hot and the sun was always shining. At least, as I remember it. On my bikini was a little beltbuckle, like in the layout. I remember it clearly, it used to hang down a little, very anoying when I was sunbathing... hahaha.

MTW Moments

On the very inspirational blog More than words, this month a challenge: clocks and moments.

I've made a layout with a picture of me, in 1973. Only 17 of 18 years old, just started working in a little clothes shop in Den Haag, Netherlands.

It's a good picture that says it al: a bit confident, a bit insecure. In that moment.

I've used Kaisercraft paper, #me, with some very good 'sentiments'.
Love the Prima 'branch', used some lace from the marked (I always want to use lace on a layout) and a little bling.

Have a good week!

Cards&scrap: Simply beautiful

Via DT Calls zoek ik altijd naar leuke nieuwe uitdagingen, sketch-challenges etc.
Op Cards en scrap inspiratieblog deze maand de uitdaging om een kaart of scrap te maken met als thema 'typisch Hollands'. Toevallig in de ochtend net een leuke foto gemaakt van mijn gele pioentulpen, die een beetje 'door' zijn en aantrekkelijk over de vaas heen hangen. Met zo'n leuk foto-trucje waardoor je zw/w fotografeert met één kleurtje.

Typisch Hollands die tulpen! Ik heb restjes 'oud' papier van Carta Bella en EP gebruikt. Ik heb deze week mijn scrap/stempel keuken een beetje geordend, en kwam van alles tegen dat nog heel goed bruikbaar was. Ook typisch Hollands, wie wat bewaard, die heeft wat.

Mooie Prima bloemen gebruikt, die zijn dan weer nieuw. Net als de leuke 'fotostrip' stempel, waar ik al een tijdje naar op zoek was. Deze vond ik in een 'euro-winkel', voor ... 1 euro!

Fijne Hemelvaart!

Kc march: Simple life

Made a layout with the nice sketch on Kaisercraft blog.

Used a picture form last year, a simpe geranium in a pot, on the terrace ... a joy for many days. I love those simple things in life.
Procuct: Kc telegraph road papers, different sorts of leftover embellishments, lots of ink and paint.

Have a good weekend!!!
