Meow You're Cute- Riddersholm Design

Hi!! Its Keren here and I'm really excited to reveal my second post as a guest designer for Riddersholm Design.
I designed this cute layout of my daughter wearing a kitty cat mask. Isn't she so cute?

I used the Riddersholm Design Fall Flea Market Secret Letter paper for the background.
Then I masked a stone stencil in the background using Tim Holtz stencil and Studio 490 black embossing paste.
The background was also sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Smokey Saphire and Screamin' Banshee Black

I also used some scrap pieces of Riddersholm paper to matt the photo and framed the photo in Blue Fern Studios Chipboard frame. The frame was also sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Screamin' Banshee black.

I also used some Riddersholm Ink It flowers Jasmin and Cherry Blossom which I sprayed Smokey Saphire and  Screamin' Banshee black respectively.

Antiquities Shop Frame- Flying Unicorn Live Ustream show

Last Week I was on live at the Flying Unicorn Ustream channel.
I created this Prima Finnabair altered metal Phone frame on the show.

Here is the recording of the show below:

I used this telephone shaped vintage frame from Prima, designed by Finnabair. I love the grungy feel to the metal so I tried not to alter it too much. 

I wanted to create an antiquities shop display window. When you walk by an antique store you can tell the feel of the store but the stuff they're selling. I created this project with that in mind to give the illusion that the pieces inside the frame are being displayed in an antique shop window.

Frogging- 7 Dots Studio July Challenge

Hello Everyone, I'm here on my blog again with a new layout for the July challenge at 7 Dots Studio.
This month's theme is Animals.
You can interpret it any way you want.
I used this picture of my daughter holding a toad!!

Here is the mood board:

My daughter loves all animals. She even invented a new word for frog catching: "Frogging". She said that when you catch fish is fishing and when you catch frogs its frogging. Even though they are actually toads, she loved catching them by the pond when we went on a trip up north to the countryside. She spent hours catching and releasing frogs/toads and really had a blast.

I used the new Verano Azul collection from 7 Dots Studios designed by my friend Tusia Lech. Its a beautiful collection with wonderful quotes and messages. The colours are divine and I loved playing with it.

One of the embellishments I used for this project is a cute resin frog from Prima. I really thought it matched the theme perfectly!!

Papers and stickers: 7 Dots Studio Verano Azul
Stamps: 7 Dots Studio Lost & Found
Stencil: Donna Downey
Prima Finnabair Art Basics Light molding paste
Prima Color Bloom Emerald spray
Ranger black archival ink
Ecoline watercolors: white and black
Prima flowers
Prima resin frog
Black marker
Faber-Castell pit artist pen big brush
Prima alpha stickers
White gesso

Thank you so much for visiting my blog
I hope you get to play with us this month
