Time not wasted - art journal

Happy Sunday to you all,
I'm sharing an art journal I've made, inspired by the July challenge at Mixed Media Place, with this awesome moodboard:
I was inspired by the old envelopes, with the vintage atmosphere. I was also drawn to the brown shades and the blue colors, so these are the main colors in my art journal.
The envelopes made me think about time, old time, past etc., and how important it is not to waste time blaming ourselved for mistakes we make, rather learn the lesson and keep on mooving.
I love this quote by August Rodin: "Nothing is a waste of time, if you use the experience wisely", and The Thinker photo was the natural choise.
I used some 7 Dots papers from several collection to mat the photo and also the clock (which is a part of the bigger die cut clock behind the photo). 

I also did a lot of stamping on the background (7 Dots Studio stamps, TH stamps and Kaisercraft stamps). 
The clock die cut was painted with Finnabair metalic paint, and when dried, I covered it partly with two Lindy's Gang embossing powders.

The street lamps were colored by Ranger's archival gray ink, heat embossed with Lindy's Midnight Sapphire blue embossing powder, and finally I rubbed some Finnabair patina effect paste.
To give some more texture to the background, I also used washi tape and Finnabair modeling paste over TH stencil, and added microbeads here and there.
Lindy's sprays were also added (Buccaneer Bay  Blue


Vintage and Tainted Love Teal Shimmer spray).
I adhered the quote, and added splatters with white gesso and Lindy's Bombshel Black Shimmer spray, and my art journal is done.




Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate your comments very much.

A wedding card for Altair Art

Happy Sunday to you all!
Today it's my turn on the Altair Art blog, and I'm sharing with you a wedding card I've made, using the gorgeous "Beautiful Moments" papers by Altair Art. These papers are just perfect for any wedding project (and to many more others).

This card is in our challenge theme of 'Celebrate':
I've used the 6x6 pad with 3 different papers, all matted with white cardstock:
I did some fussy cut of the flowers elements and the rings from these papers:

I've also made a pocket inside, to hold a gift card or money.
Here're some close-ups:

Sweet Summer's Days - August Counterfeit Kit

At Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog they have a beautiful inspiration kit, Cocoa Daisy July 2018 kit:
I really loved this one and went deep into my stash to gather my own version of this kit - Sweet Summer's Days.
Papers side A:
Papers side B:
Small scraps to counterfeit some of the embellies in the inspiration kit:
I really liked the hexagons and circles with the two patternes, so I used my hexagons and curcles dies and die cut from the small scraps. I also die cut some words and adhered them to some of the embellies:
Then I gathered some bigger pp scraps as my 'add on papers':
I've put stamps, honeycomb and hexagons dies, thickers, alphas in different sizes, labels, tags, tabs, baker's twines, enamel dots and sequins:
I counterfeited the daisy flowers in two ways: with a punch and with stamps, and colored the centers of the flowers with some yellow mist:
At the last minute I added a pinky pp with a white handwriting pattern, a dotted ribbon, a stamp for the coming Jewish holidays and a flair button:
It turned a bit autumnal colors, so I have a feeling that whatever leftovers I have from this kit, I will use them in a month or two... LOL.
I love how my kit turned out. now it's time to use it!

A birthday card for 'Celebrate' challenge at Altair Art

This month is my turn on Altair Art blog to host the monthly challenge, and since August is my birthday month (actualy - today!), I chose the theme of 'Celebrate', and kind of celebration:

Hop over to Altair Art blog to see the fab creations my fellow DT made for this challenge.
I made a birthday card, using the beautiful papers by Altair Art, but this time with some mixed media techniques.
I was inspired by the colors of the monthly challenge at Lindy's Gang blog:
So I went with this beautiful soft and subtle pallet. For my card I chose the colors of pink, purple and green.
I used my bigshot to cut the doily and then used embossing ink with Lindy's Weapping Willow Green ep to get this beautiful shiny subtle green color. I also die cut a circle using the same technique, for the center, and matted it with a circle cut out of Altair Art paper. I really love the shiny look it got!
I also die cut the flourishes and colored them with Lindy's Pop Rock Purple flat fabio spray.
The flower in the center was colored with Lindy's Chteau Rose flat spray and the center was colored with the Pop Rock Purple spary.
I used a beautiful pinky paper by Altair Art, both for the main rectangle, and the matting circle and the sentiment.
I heat embossed Kaisercraft stamp on the pinky paper with Lindy's Oom Pah Pah Pink ep, and splatterd some Lindy's Mad Hatter Mint shimmer spray and Chateau Rose spray.
The sentiment was heat embossed with Lindy's Weapping Willo Green ep and then stampped again with Ranger's ink, so it got a little shaddow.
For the final touch I used gauze, pink enamel dots and micro beads.
The Altair Art papers I've used are:
