Prima August 2014 BAP and PPP

Hello Sunday, hello you!

Weekends are always too short, too much on that to-do list and not enough hours. I've had the Prima BAP and PPP sitting on my desk for weeks without being able to finish them.  With only hours to go before deadline, I just bit the bullet and finished them even if the result isn't quite what I had in mind.

This is going to be a photo heavy blogpost, so I'll just let the photos speak for themselves. 

First the August PPP palette;

8-august 

And then my take on it;


Papers used are going from bottom and up - Sun Kiss, Zephyr
and Fairy Rhymes. Stash raiding again!


The bubbles are masked with the new Finnabair Texture 
Paste in White Sand and then sprinkled with new 
Finnabair glitter in silver.



Next the beautiful BAP sketch by Jennifer Snyder;

BAP Jennifersketch
And my take on it;


Papers are from Stationer's Desk and Time Traveler's Memories.
The title refers to a Swedish song that this
young lady loves.






That's it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to come for a visit!

Have a wonderful start to the week/enjoy your Sunday!

From creamy elegance to blingy bling!

I love, and I really mean - LOVE! anything that is cream/white/gold. So elegant and beautiful but oh so difficult to photograph!

A while ago I made a canvas based on those colours and then took it to a birthday party where I gave a speach to the birthday girl while I gave the canvas sprays of colour and then swiped the details with silver and gold glitter. See, I love my bling!

And the other guests thought it was a fun idea to create something while I was talking. Well, they didn't know that the prep work took me some hours but hey, it was so worth it!

So, starting off with the canvas when it was cream/white/gold. Photographed with my mobile phone just before we left home and therefore the piccies are awful. Arrgh for my bad memory!


Matte gel medium, gesso, heavy modelling paste. 

Mists in Tattered Angels chalkboard in Chalk and 
Sandy Beach.
 Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Crushed Shells and
Mister Huey's Opaque White.

Mica flakes in white and silver, silver micro beads,
Prima cob web trim in cream and gold, pearls.
 The flowers are a mix of all sorts from my box of 
loose blooms, mainly Prima.
I was looking for different textures so they are
a mix of mulberry, fabric, lace, canvas, silk, paper. 

Yes, I've got A LOT of flowers in my stash!


And then after the colours were added;

Prima Color Bloom sprays in Peony, Cotton Candy,
Storm Cloud and Summer Sky.
Tattered Angels chalkboard in Splash.
Black India Ink





Et voilĂ !

Thanks for stopping by! Happy weekend!

Cheers! xoxo Eila

Birthday Banner

Hello!

Friday! my goodness, dunno where this week went!

Last week I was creating for a special birthday that took place last weekend, such a wonderful occasion it was. Beautiful weather till later in the evening when the rain brought out the moscitoes - eek!

Today I though I'd share the banner/bunting I made. Congrats in Swedish is "GRATTIS" and that's what's on the banner. When I was going to photograph it at home, I discovered we had nowhere to hang it properly so I pulled the curtains in our dining area and hung it across the window. Not very good photos I am afraid, but couldn't do it any other way.

Letting the photos speak for themselves. Everything is from my box of odd bits and bobs. The papers are DCWV Linen Closet which are among the very first papers I bought when I started scrapping.

The letters were originally plain wood so I spray-painted them in gold before adding glitter and then I spray-painted a second time over the glitter.

Winner of my little something and a stinking cute monkey girl

Hello hello!

Busy busy with a special celebration coming up in a week. Such a joy to create something just because you want to make somebody happy. Will share the result with you after next weekend.

First the name of the winner who guessed that tags 1 and 3 were made with Chrissie papers. The answer was to be found on the Scrap365 Magazine's blog. 

Congrats Valerie Ann Thorpe! Sparkly Prima Time Traveler's Memories and Seashore SIIC + Stationer's Desk Typewriter roses coming your way. I know where to find you for your addie :))


Here's a page that I made just for me, or rather for my niece who is the mother of this cheeky little monkey girl. It is mainly based on the Prima Something Blue collection but there are bits from Seashore and really ancient Romantique in there as well.

 

My grand niece is 2 years old and is the most adorable entertainer. This photo speaks volumes of this headstrong little lady, it’s very obvious that she is not too impressed with what is being served. Just look at that scrunched-up little button nose! How cute does cute get!
