Happy Birthday


My entry for the More Than Words Challenge .

New Beginnings is for me Scrapbooking.
I hardly did any scrapbooking the last years, because I started thinking:
for who, where to store them, the kids will not keep them one day etc etc 
I overthought it because I miss my scrapbooking .
And now this is a new beginning for me, more time on my hands for scrapbooking, having fun.
And I do it for myself, if thrown away some day.....well , doesnt botter me than anymore :) 

For the creative challenge I did stick my overload of black and white washi to a paper.
Than I cut flowers and leaves from the paper.
It gave me good cutouts, very sturdy. 
I also used this behind my picture.

Well dressed

When I saw the moosboard at Scrap the Girls this month.., 
I had to think of one of my granddaughters.
Well, if someone is dressed well every day it is this little lady.
I dont think she will be unsure about the boys in her life.
Untill now at least.......feel free! 

The moodboard:

Pastel baby

A picture I wanted to scrap already for a long time.....
One of my granddaughters on a cold day in the start of spring.
Perfect possibillities for pastel colors...

I was inspired by the April moodboard from More than Words

Pastels and baby....

I really wanted to use pastels, but I did not want sweetness overload pastels.
I used some pressed leaves and kept my pastels very soft.
|I did not use the word baby, because the baby is already on the picture :) 

And the lovely moodboard|:

Guestdesign layout for 13 arts

The twins on the picture are two of my grandsons. 
It was the first time together in a bed without machines on them. 
They had a difficult start after they were born 10 weeks early. 

The Marchmoodboard from 13 arts spoke to me as natural and tender. 
I used a lot of real Edelweiss and greenery I dryed myself . 
As my background I took The natural beauty paper from Rose fields colection. 
This paper gave me the feeling of a ultrasound picture you get when you are pregnant. 
So I let the boys sleep safely inside .

Mixed media place , the lost layout for December moodboard

The colors in the middle picture from the moodboard inspired me .
After the 1st Januari I feel spring coming up. 
I know it takes a long time still, but I feel it will come again.

Working on my blog I was so stupid to remove the post with my challenge layout.
So here it is again, now I will not touch the post anymore :)

I find it hard to scrap masculine layouts, but we cant forget about the men in our lives.
I have a lot of  them, so many layouts are masculine.
No flowers or feminin details and embellishments makes it harder.
But sometimes it is nice to leave all the sweetness away .

I was inspired by the 7 dots Studio Januari moodboard .
Especially the colors
And used a lot of their products on this layout.
Paper, stamps etc.

Goals and journaling

Doelen (goals) , this year no goals I have to get.
I looked at my youngest grandson and thought about goals .
Do very little children have goals? 
They reach new goals every day, but they dont make them for theirselves.
Thats a nice thought , and my idea for this year.
My journaling is in Dutch , but it is about that what I just wrote here.

I added many layers, but managed to keep the page very flat.
I dont want to many bulky pages in the albums.
I had so much fun making this layout, I missed scrapbooking .
I really want to try and make some pages now and than.

I used the moodbaord from More than Words

Love to make collages......clean and fun to do inbetween other things

Tupac Shakur

I get a lot of questions to make posters like this.
I take a good poster, add clear gesso on both sides.
It makes the poster look matt.
Than I take modeling paste , mix in sand or color or both.
And just spread it random .
It gives a grunch feeling .

13 arts challenge...

Petticoat for 13 Arts 

I was very busy the last two years, stopped all my social media and painted .
Last month I saw a layout somewhere on the internet and ..
scrapbook fever grabbed me again.

I have to be creative for myself again, and had big fun making this page...

I even had to make a new blog  and it feels great :) 
I was inspired by the moodbaord just by the word pettycoat..
I love this picture of my granddaughter , very rustical.
She wears a petticoat over ALL her clothes , its a addiction :)
