Mixed Media Monday with Kerstin - 3.13.17

Hello !

Some years ago I was in Paris, a wonderful main town in Europe/France.
One of many nice things you can do there is to enjoy a coffee 
in a small bistro on the street.
 As I saw this beautiful old vintage photo I reminded me on this
 and was inspired to make a layout to my favourite daydream.

I used again the beautiful 'Our story ' kit with a background paper 
from the new Love clippings collection (Prima Marketing)

-Imagine- from the Bo Bunny Foil Transfers, also as negative used

Our march challenge theme here is to alter a chipboard, there are many opportunities to do that.
I works often with white embossing powder 
and when you inked your chipboard only on few places, not
everywhere,  you will see a timeworn look as altered effect
 Easy and fast!


cut out's from the 3x4 Journaling Notecards

some letters from Kaisercraft with white embossing powder
and some stars from the Bo Bunny Foil Transfers

wonderful flowers from the Floral Add On, 

flowers and lace were inked with Lindy's Stamp Gang Milk Chocolate Shimmer Powder
and a little bit water, that's really always a surprise when you see this magical effect

I was inspired from this beautiful words
- Art is a never ending story of illusions - , yes that's a true saying for me.

A little ballerina dreams of a future in the limelight. 
This dream can come true, who knows that?
however, she loves the music and to dance.


I decided to used a background paper from the Prima Love clipping collection,
 lovely paints for a romantic little princess layout.

some details

some stars from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons
 included in the Elements Add-On

I also used this beautiful dew drop background stamp
 for the background and some leftovers from the notecards from this new Prima collection

ART letters - I colored the Kaisercraft chipboard letters
 with a embossing powder in copper/ black shades

 silk ribbon was perfect suitable to all this smart colours 
and I added as highlight the 3 little metal hearts 

You can find our kits to purchase here,
and we have also a very inspiring  Facebook group
 with our monthly challenge album here,
where we love to see everyone's work with our kits.

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!
