Tea Time - SATW DT

Bonjour à toutes,

Nouveau mois, nouveau challenge chez Scrap Around the World. Et voici pour projet ...

Hello Sweeties,

New month means new challenge at Scrap Around the World. And here is my project ...

(Photo : Vee O)

... inspiré par le tableau d'inspiration que Tehri nous a préparé. 

... inspired by Tehri's Mood Board. 

Je me suis inspiré des couleurs : bleu, jaune et ficelle. J'ai intégré les chevrons dans mon fond de page et la ficelle au milieu des fleurs. 

I was inspired by the colors: blue, yellow and linen. I added some chevrons on my background and the thread in the flowers clusters.

J'ai gardé mon fond très simple. J'ai commencé par coller du papier de soie imprimé avec du gel medium mat. Ensuite j'ai ajouté un motif à l'aide d'un pochoir et de Primary Element. J'ai ajouté quelques tamponnages et taches noires pour donner du contraste.

I kept my background quiet simple. I started by gluing somme tissue paper with Soft Matte Gel. Then I added a design with a stencil and Primary Element. I added some random stamping and some black splatter for contrast.

J'ai utilisé des encres en spray pour colorer les roses. J'ai découpé les fleurs dans un cardstock coloré avec des encres Distress.

I used spray inks to color the roses. I die-cut the shadow flowers in a cardstock colored with Distress Inks.

J'ai simplement encré les feuilles avec de l'encre Distress pour leur donner un peu de relief.

Elisa - Maja Design DT

Bonjour à toutes

Aujourd'hui je suis sur le blog de Maja Design avec une autre photo de famille. Il s'agit de mon arrière-grand-mère, Elisa, l'épouse de Nicolas.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm on Maja Design blog with another family photo. It's my great-grand-mother Elisa, Nicolas's wife.

Je me suivi les couleurs du tableau d'inspiration de Dusty Attic pour réaliser cette page.

I used the Inspiration Board from Dusty Attic to realize this layout.

J'ai commencé par altérer le papier de fond avec une couche fine et irrégulière de Gesso. Puis à l'aide d'un pochoir, j'ai ajouté un motif avec de la pâte à craqueler blanche que j'ai laissé sécher naturellement.

I began to alter the background  with a thin and uneven layer Gesso. Then with a stencil, I added a design with a some white crackle paste that I let dry all night.

Le lendemain, j'ai légérement coloré la pâte à craqueler de manière inégale pour accentuer l'aspect vintage de ma page. Quelques tampons et tâches ont suffit pour terminer mon fond de page.

The day after, I added a light and uneven touch of color to the background with a chalk ink as I want to give a vintage look to my layout. Some random stamping and a few spaltters were enough to finish the background.

Avant de travailler les chipboards, je les ai peint avec du Gesso. J'ai ajouté de la pâte à craqueler sur les fleurs pour leur donner du relief. J'ai peint le sherbes avec une Silks and les fleurs avec deux tons de Twinklings H2O.

Before working on the chipboards, I painted them with Gesso. I added some crackle paste on the flowers to give them some texture. I painted the grass with a Silks and the flowers with two shades of Twinklings H2O.

J'ai coloré les feuilles, découpées dans du papier aquarelle, avec une Silks et diverses encres Chalk pour leur donner du relief.

I colored the leaves, die-cut in a watercolor paper, with a Silks and two tones of Chalk ink in order to obtain some texture too.

Matériels / Materials:

Maja Design papers:
  • Vintage Summer Basics 1911
  • Vintage Autumn Basics n°V
  • Nyhavn - The Sunny Side

I began by gluing some scraps of paper on the background to give some texture that I covered with a thin layer of Gesso. I add a design with a stencil and some Modeling Paste and used Twinklings H2O to color the background and added some random stamping. 

J'ai embossé les papillons en métal et les cœurs avant d'y ajouter une légère touche de rouge pour donner du contraste.

I embossed the butterflies and the hearts before adding a light touch of red in order to give some contrast.
