Be Fearless Art Journal Page



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing my new project Be Fearless Art Journal Page that I created for the More Than Words challenge. The subject of the challenge this month was Grunge and the word Fearless. Exactly the challenge for me!     Be Fearless Art Journal Page I love the gunge style, which is sometimes confused with steampunk (which I also love). Grunge is more about strong and dark colors, distressing and a sort of a punk look. It can be disorganized, graffiti, in your face look that is translated to a project. I decided to create an art journal page, because I thought it is the most appropriate medium for such an approach.       So I started with some spraying and then added stenciling, all in black, brown and strong reds. Then I drew a face and painted it in a yellow-green color so it will give the maximum contrast to the background. Finally I …

Interactive Scrapbook Pocket Page



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I thought it would be fun to share with you how to create an Interactive Scrapbook Pocket Page. I don’t do Project Life but I can sure relate to the trend of micro scrapbooking or pocket pages. I think it’s a great idea to document memories in a fast and space efficient way. So I wanted to share an idea of how you can jazz your pages a little.     Interactive Scrapbook Pocket Page The first problem you have when you work with a pocket page is the space. On one hand it’s enough to document a complete week full of memories and experiences. On the other hand it’s sometimes too small for everything you want to document. In mini albums and 12×12 pages you can solve this problem by adding paper “real estate” in a form of an interactive mechanism. But here we come to another problem… the pockets.     The pockets …

Paper Fall Wreath Tutorial



Hi dear crafty friends! Fall is on its way, finally, and I want to share with you a Paper Fall Wreath Tutorial. This project will look really beautiful on your wall, the front door or any other place you’ll want to hang it. This fall wreath is so easy to make you will not believe it!   Paper Fall Wreath Tutorial I’m a winter person, so I’m really happy when fall arrives because it means that winter is not far behind. Here we don’t have the tradition of decorating the front door with a wreath on any occasion. But I decided to decorate my studio door with this wreath so I’ll have a constant reminder that my favorite season is around the corner. Let’s get started… 1.  Cut chipboard into a circle. Decide the size of circle to match your hanging location. The circle doesn’t have to be very accurate. 2. Punch 3 flowers. 3. Cut flowers according to photo: 1) (left) …

Scrapbooking Tips: Using Interactive Elements



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing another of my Scrapbooking Tips: Using Interactive Elements. I get asked a lot how to add interactive elements to a scrapbooking layout especially with the page protector getting in the way. It’s actually much easier than you think if you cheat a little.     Scrapbooking Tips: Using Interactive Elements The idea behind interactive elements is that there are moving parts on your page. Something on the page can be opened, turned or moved in any way. That adds interest, sophistication and fun to the page. It works great on mini album pages but when you want to add it to a 12×12 layout you have a problem with the page protector. There are two ways to solve this problem. The first,which I like less and is more tricky is to cut the page protector and allow the moving part to be on the outside. For example if you have a flap gently …
