La vie en Rose

I always loved old movies and I addore songs from old movies. One of my all-time favourites is "La vie en Rose" by Edith Piaf. I could listen to it all day long. And today's inspiration for my new art journal pages came from that song. I used gorgeous Graphic 45 "Tme to celebrate" paper collection and some letter stickers from "Once upons a Springtime Deluxe collector's edition. I love the result! What about you?

Talking about Life and Love, I want to thank you my dear friends for visiting me, for leaving such a lovely comments all over my blog and youtube channel. It means a world to me and gives me so much joy and a big wish to prepare some more lovely projects for you. Thank you!

I invite to to scroll through the pictures of my newest project and stop on my youtube channel to take a look at the process. You can now even check my Snapguide tutorial. I hope you'll enjoy!

Have a sweet day!
Hugs

Fairyland under the waterfall

Hi guys, today I'm back with another mixed media off the page project. I've created a fairyland under the waterfall floating cup with gorgeous Graphic 45 "Once upon a springtime" collection. I've added some gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards and some lovely Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Fairies are rowing on the water under the breathtaking waterfall and as it suits the fairyland they are surrounded with blossoms everywhere. I just love how this turned out and I hope you'll like it too! :)

There is also a video tutorial at the end of the post, so that you can see how it was made.

Have fun and enjoy the day!
Hugs,
Aleksandra

Voyage beneath the sea

I made another art journal page. I just love making them. It's so relaxing! :) I was in love with this Graphic 45 collection for some time now - actually I'm in love with almost all of their collections :D. And I love the page that came out of it. :)

I love to share with you the process of my making, so as usually I have a video tutorial for you at the end of this post.

Hope you'll enjoy it! :) Have fun! And happy Valentines day! <3

Blossoming Wheelbarrow for Wild Orchid Crafts


Today it is a special day... I have my very first project to share with you as a Wild Orchid Crafts Design Team member. I really adore Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and it is a great joy and honour beeing choosen as their designer. I wanted to prepare something special and since I love exploding boxes and can't wait for the spring to come, I made an exploding box with a Secret garden and blossoming wheelbarrow in the garden. Besides various gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers I also used Maja Design papers and some Scrapiniec chipboards.

I've also made a youtube tutorial for you. Hope you'll like my very first project for the awesome Wild Orchid Crafts and that it inspires you somehow.











I used several Wild Orchid Crafts products for this box. You can get yours and much more at the WOC webshop:


Thank you so much for joining me today. Have fun and hope to see you again soon here at my happy place! :)

Hugs,
Aleksandra

Sweet Valentine

I finally managed to find some time to play with my Graphic 45 art journal again. Since it is the month of "Love" and since Valentine's day is fast approaching I decided to made a page full of love. I used two Graphic 45 collections - Sweet sentiments and 12 days of Christmas. They go together so well! I just love how this page turned out. What about you? Like it? :)

I didn't forget all of you who want to learn how to make one by yourself so there is a youtube tutorial at the end of my post.

Have a great day my friends and give love to people around you! <3

Hugs,
Aleksandra

Butterfly tree trunk nest

I just love Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook collection. It's like it was made for me. The love at first sight! :) So I went and played a little bit more with it. I took a glass jar and made a tree trunk with it. I fussy cut a bunch of butterflies from the Nature Sketcbook papers and attached them to a wire and position them so it seems like butterflies are flying from their nest in the tree trunk. I fussy cut also a lot of grass plants and ferns along with some tiny insects and bees. I like how it turned out. I added a quote that is a part of the collection and is one of my favourite ones. It says: "Happiness is like a butterfly. If you sit down quietly, it may light upon you."

I made a video tutorial and you can find it at the end of this post. Hope you'll like my project and enjoy the tutorial.

Hugs,
Aleksandra
