Embellishments Galore!

CHA is always a source for a lot of fun and inspiration! Here’s a simple but pretty project courtesy of one of the adhesive companies in the show. All you need is a felt bag or purse and lots of embellishments like flowers, buttons, beads and more, then you can start the embellishing party! Mix and match the shapes, materials and colors and you’ll get a really wonderful creation!   Have fun creating! Einat

Few materials – Lots of inspiration

One of my favorite thing in CHA are the Make & Takes, and one of my favorite Make & Takes this year was the Ranger project. We didn’t get a lot of materials but each one of them was packed with beauty and inspiration. I, of course, had to change my project a little bit and I created a 3D card. I raised the film strip before attaching it to create a little bridge to hang embellishments. I hen used stickers and Washi tape to add more dimension to the background. I added a little metal look with staples, little metal frame and a pen tip. I really like the red and black color combination and all the cute little embellishments like the round wooden number, the safety pin, the glittery Eiffel tower and the crumbled ribbon.

It was really fun creating it, because I used colors I usually don’t use and I had to create my own embellishments, as part of the techniques taught in the class. Have fun creating!Einat

Maximize your supplies – Use your scraps!

Use your scraps! It’s good for the environment, it’s good for the pocket and it’s good for the soul (because it’s less clutter….). Here’s a layout I created from scraps and left over materials.                             Here are all the tips for creating a layout like that… 1. When you use leftover materials, the biggest problem will probably be the letters. Some of them were already used and you have to use what you have or mix up a few types of letters. This is why I started this layout from the title. When I was sure I had a fun title I picked my paper and my photo.                         2. Pick a paper that has a theme or build in embellishments, this way you will not have to add a lot of extra stuff. 3. I …

Telephone Scraplift Fun!!

To celebrate the new year a few friends and I decided to have fun with a telephone scraplift game! It’s always interesting to see the initial sketch compared with the final layout and the journey in between.Here’s the layout I got from libeeti. לכבוד השנה החדשה החלטנו לשחק במשחק טלפון שבור כייפי. הנה הדף שקיבלתי מליביטי Here’s my interpretation…. הנה הפרשנות שלי   Two major things happened in my layout. The first is the style, I completely changed the style and the mood of the layout, by taking it to a more mixed media look. The second is the interpretation of the sketch, I used the main motifs from libeeti’s layout and made a different interpretation. * Two photos,the right one with a frame: libeeti used a paper frame, I used a canvas framed that I misted.* Three round embellishments: in libeeti’s layout there are two doilies and a big paper flower, I used patterned paper circles. לקחתי מוטיבים מרכזיים מהדף של …
