Hello!  Here's my new page for Tresor de Luxe using their beautiful laces and flowers.  This page is about my boy Alexander when he was a baby crawling around the apartment.  I started my page using the beautiful tulle lace to cover my upper page, then I painted and stamped with the new Finnabair stamps by Prima.  The frames are from 2 Crafty Chipboard and the papers from Maja Design - Spring Vintage Basics collections. I painted the small lace flowers with Glimmer mist, they come in a trim and you find it in Tresor de Luxe shop. I cut the pretty big flower by half to layer my photos. I traced the feathers in a paper and then I cut them to decorate my page. Tresor de Luxe..... SHOP Tresor de Luxe .... Blog Thanks for stopping by...until next time! hugs! MARILYN

So see you go

Hi!! Today I want to share you my second project for 2Crafty Chipboard .  I come with a boy page about my son.  He spent the summer with us here in NC but he returned to study in PR, but it's always hard to see him go. I took these pictures on the day he left... I mixed in this page the clock, frames and film stripes chipboard. I started off by applying modeling paste wit a sponge to all the frames then I applied coat of gesso, next I painted with distress ink(blue and beige) colors. I used a twill ribbon and washi tapes to create textures in my background work.  Then I applied molding paste with a mask, next I used gelatos, Ranger-distress stain, acrylic paint, distress inks, watercolor pencils.   All the little film strips were just the perfect thing to use with all the pics. The skeleton clock frame tucked in at the side.  Flowers are from Prima. 2Crafty Chipboard..... HERE Until next time!! Hugs! Marilyn

Hello!! Today is my turn at Maja Design blog to share my creative space..."In Our Sofa".  My scrapbook room is my paradise, I moved to NC eight months ago and I took the smallest room of our apartment that is near to a big tree full of beautiful birds like Cardinals and other species that are singing all day. For that reason my desk is near to the window and I can see and listen all these beautiful creatures meanwhile I was creating my pages, it is like a paradise for me...priceless!  My scrapbook room is not gorgeous or fancy, it's a 10 x 10 room that is very practical and functional for me. Let's get started with the tour... Here's how it looks from the door. To the left you see my work area(desk), the double doors in the back is the closet.  In the right side you see my sewing machine and "Juanita" that is how I called my dress form, lol! Up front you'll see my complete work area, in the left you see my photo printer and under it a
