This life is pretty amazing - art journal

Hello dear crafty friends, 
Lindy's Gang has a beautiful subtle color challenge this month, which I really like, so I've made an art journal, using their awesome products.
I started by giving a good coat of white gesso, and then added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil:
Next, I added Mad Hatter Mint spray, dilluted it with water:
I wanted another shade of green, so I added Aloha Avocado spray, and againg dilluted it with water:
Now it's time for some stamping, with different shades of gray and black inks, using Finnabair's stamps and 49 and Market Pascale's stamp:

Stamping a sentiment, using Stamper Anonymous Tim Holtz stamp, with Ranger's Arcival ink Jet Black:
I die cut some leaves from a watercolor paper, and heat embossed it with Merry Go Round ep:

I also die cut some more leaves and colored them with Pop Rock Purple flat spray, and stamped some flowers with gray ink:
Then I made my design with all those colored die cuts:
I also die cut other shape of leaves, and heat embossed them with Silver Moon Sapphire ep:
Splattering around with Magnolia Magenta Gold shimmer spray, adhering dew drops and enamel dots for the flowers center, and adding some silver micro beads, then doodling a frame all around:

And that's the final result:

A Wonderful Day - case file no. 278 at CSI + Sketches in Thyme

Hello dears, today I'm sharing with you my layout for the new case file at CSI, case file no. 278, with this inspiration photo:
As soon as I saw the IP, I knew right away that I have the perfect photo to match the colors of the scheme - a photo of my boys, at Eilat Bay, sailing on a boat. it was such a wonderful day, and it was during a so needed vacation we had during a hard period in our life.
I used sketch no. 364 from Sketches In Thyme:
As for the clues to solve the case file, I used: dots, grid pattern (almost unseen, the journaling 'clouds'), gingham, stripes, woodgrain, hearts, sun, string, kites, die cuts, pinwheels, triangles and diamond shapes. My journaling, on the clouds, documents our wonderf day.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

A wedding mini album, in gold/white/black

Here's a mini album I've made for a friend who got married.
I've used the gorgeous Lucidity 6x6 pad by Piatek13.
I've made the album from scratch - chipboards covered with a beautiful pp, printed with hearts in gold, silver and black. it has a feeling like a fabric.
The mini album measures 8.5"x6" and the pages are 7.5"x5.75".
It has many flaps and pockets and inserts, and can hold 40-50 photos!
Here're some photos and the 'walk through' video:

I'm entering it to the March challenge at Mini Album Makers:

Inspiration - CSI case file no. 275

It's a new months and there's a new case file at CSI - case file no. 275, with this beautiful inspiration photo, with the guidelines to solve the case:
I was inpired by hanging prints on the wall. I used stripes, polka dots, leafy elements, washi tape, typewriter, hangers, frames and created a "shelf" for my journaling spot. I also adhered the journaling spot to the 'wall' with washi tape.
The title says, in Hebrew - Inspiration, and my journaling is about what gives me inspiraton in my crafting.
This layout is way far from my usual style. no mixed media, no multy-layers, quite CAS one. it feels a little 'empty' for me...
Here're some close-ups:

Amazing - a mixed media layout

Happy Saturday to you all!
Today I'm sharing with you a mixed media layout I've made for some challenges.

First is the current challenge at 7 Dots Studio blog, with this beautiful moodboard:
When I saw this moodboard, the color combination reminded me the photo I took at Sainte Chapelle cathedral in Paris, with light coming through the stained glasses. I drew some more inspiration from the twinklings, and the photo of the old street (I always think of Paris when I see photos of old streets).
All papers, tags, sticker and die-cuts are 7 Dots Studios.
Next is the current challenge at Mixed Media Place blog, with a quite similar in colors moodboard:
Once again, the colors of purple and teal drew my attention, and also the touch of brown and cream, with twinklings and the stone paved street.
Working with shades of purple and blue/turquoise was perfect for two color challenges. 
One is at Lindy's Gang blog:
Although the pallete is quite pastel one, I decided to go on much bolder version of these colors, with the addition of gold.
The Lindy's products I've used are:
Embossing powder - Caesar's Gold.
Love, love, love how they all combined together.
Last, and certainly not least, is the Feb challenge at Art Playground blog, which also combined shades of purple and blue/teal:
As explained it the excellent tip on this blog, it is very important to add different shapes to your creation, to make it more intersting. One way, which I used here, is working with stencils and modeling paste. The stencil I've used (Magenta) has already different shapes - lines and circles. I used the stencil in the vertical way, the way the windows in the photo go. Then I added more circles with the tags, the gold sequins, the die cuts under the the title and the splatters.
