Saturday morning and the roof tops of Stockholm are glistening white with frost in the sunshine. No snow yet, but soon ....
The passed week has been a busy one, attending a conference and planning for the Big Ones in February and April 2012. Lots of stuff happening at work with downsizing carried out in our organization but still full throttle ahead - business ain't waiting.
Yesterday saw the release of a new fruity and vibrant palette over at TCR, we're in Her Room this week.
Woohoo for Raspberry, White, Fuchsia and Sunflower!
Here's my take on the palette:
The checkered yellow/white paper is the reverse of a paper from Authentique. For the first time ever I have played with Gesso on a bigger scale than just dabbing a bit here and there. At first it looked really something that I wanted to chuck into the bin, but after having dried over night it had assumed a rather cool texture.
The title "Andiamo in Bicicletta" means let's go for a bicycle ride.
The stamps are from 7Gypsies Venice. I misted one of the tags in TA Sunflower. A snippet of Tim Holtz tissue tape, some hessian, and a Prima toggle. Splatter in fuchsia TA Glimmer Glam, think the colour is called Pink Tutu.
The black bling is cut off from a Prima Printery Line lace/jewel swirl.
Here you see what the Gesso looks like with the chalk in fuchsia and raspberry and squirts of the TA glimmermist in Sunflower. Think I have to experiment some more!
Really love this cute little bicycle from KaiserCraft. Jazzed it up a little bit with a dainty yellow satin ribbon and a couple of Webster's Pages Rose&Pearl sparklers.
Tore off the border of a couple of mini doilies and scrunched them up before tucking them into the flower cluster, which is made of cut-off flowers from a couple of old Prima Debutantes and some other odd small Prima blooms.
Isn't the electric blue bike just so cool! I understand why it had to be photographed, just too good an opportunity to be missed.
The double matting is with papers from Authentique and the reverse side of a paper from Crate Paper. The big sunflower was fussy cut from a paper from K&Co. The filmstrip is an overlay from KaiserCraft and the chipboard is Dusty Attic of course.
I have been busy making Christmas cards and layouts that I cannot share with you just yet.
A piece of big bang news is going to be released shortly, I am super excited about it but have to wait for a bit before it can be shared. Something really lovely is also happening in March.
Life really is so good and I am infinitely grateful to so many lovely and caring people out there. Thank you warmly for all the incredibly kind comments you leave me and all the wonderful love that you leave! I am truly so blessed!
Have a wonderful weekend all of you! More Christmas cards waiting to be scrapped!
