“Something to Brighten your Day” by Elisabeth

by admin


Finally it’s my turn to be sharing with you again. This time I’ve cooked up something bright, vibrant and messy for you.

No romantic touches this time;) I love yellow..can’t get enough of it, and the whole world falls in to place when I use it on my work.

You can match it with ANY color, honestly!

Here is my layout:  


The background is made with gesso on top of magic mesh, and the yellow is various paint, mist and chalk.

I like to use circles on my layout, and the chipboard piece I’ve used here was the perfect circle:


Graphic Frame

I treated the chipboard with both gesso and pan pastel..so lovely!








My second layout is made with my second favoritecolor: turquoise!

I even threw in a gold doilie for you, to get it nice and shiny;)

I’ve treated the background again with gesso, magic mesh, paint and mists.

The title says:  “Birthday Boy.”

Again I’ve added circular elements: the doilie, the big flower and this chipboard:


Wrought iron circle


Sometimes you look for the extra-extra to put on your page, and I found me this one:


Birdhouse brooche





I hope you feel inspired, the way I am, working with these layouts and the chipboards from ScrapFX  inspires me over and over again!

Thank you so much for stopping by<3

  6. Oh how I love yellow too!!! I agree it goes with everything and you have rocked it!! Love how you used the graphic under that darling photo – I call my boy sweets all the time. The second page with turquoise – another fav of mine is outstanding as well!! Love the design of it and how you used the wrought iron circle piece along with the brooch. Both unexpected pieces for a boy page but wonderful perfect! Its funny you use magic mesh and I use the same type of material only it is simply from the hardware store – ha! I haven’t used it a good while so thank you for reminding me I need to get this back out and play with my roll again. Awesome work my friend!! 😀
