Adventure awaits - Destiny is calling!



Hello my scrapbook friends! 

Thank you for checking out my blog! 
This is my layout for the More Than Words  July Challenge.

The pictures were taken at Disney World Epcot. It's a lot of fun to visit all these countries along the lake. I visited Italy many times when I was growing up. Never quite made it to Venice. Between Epcot and the Las Vegas Venetian it would be truly awesome to explore the real deal some day. 




For the layout I used lots of the brand new 7Dots Hazy Days collection. 
Prima Marketing mixed media products and flowers. 
The Chipboard is from UmWow.
The inks and mists are from Tim Holtz - Oxides and Prima Color Blooms. 


A couple more close-ups.



Thank you so much for taking a look! 

Have a great day!

Hope to see you again!

Timeless









When I saw this challenge I immediately knew I wanted to do a reversed canvas on top of a canvas. Like it was a window. With a flower arrangement hanging from it. But then all artsy and fun. 
Above all else sunny, with all these yellows and golds, how can it not be sunny. 


I started with placing the little canvas on top of the larger one. Then put the gold crackle randomly over  it and as we all know you need to let that dry on its own to get the best cracks. After that I went over the can cas with modelling paste with the fun 13@ stencil. Once everything was dry I got the two Lindy's Starbust out and played with the mists. Some light, some dark. Some touches with the acrylics and more structure with art stones, gliter, micro-beads and sequence. I had a ball. 
The Metallique Waxes are just perfect for that little touch of extra umpff you want here and there.


The mould pieces were dry brushed with the acrylics and that extra last touch of sparkle with the Dragon's Nest Sparks makes it shine like magic. The Yellow flowers I got from Heather Thompson last year, so a shout out to her and a thank you! They are perfect for this creation. 
The flair from Cuts2Luv tied the whole piece together with the title. A bit of nostalgia. 
Thank you for this wonderful mood board! I had so much fun creating with it. 


For everyone who's visited my blog and is reading this! A sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I'm overjoyed for all the support!

Thank you for having a look! 

Have a fabulous day!

Lydia
