October DCWV layout challenge

Who's ready for some fussy cutting ? When I saw the flowery blue paper of the Marquee Premium stack I've received in my DT box, I couldn't resist and did grab my cutter... Papers is all I used in this layout :

I left the roses as they were, but drawn white lines into the leaves to make the cuts pop a little more.

Here is the sketch from the DCWV blog

You can play until the end of October with this sketch and try to win some goodies...

See you for the card sketch,,,

Time for (Breast Cancer) Awareness : an altered clock

Hello Beauties !

October is the Breast Cancer Awareness month. I think we all know someone, family, friend, co-worker... who has fought or is still fighting breast cancer. I do know. And I'm very proud of these great fighters !
The most important reason in winning this battle is to be aware of it. So should you be a very young or more mature women, you could self-exam your breasts to spot any change. Follow this link for recommendations about the 5 steps of self-exam by

To show and share our commitment to fighting this disease, the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew has created many beautiful pink projects. Mine was an pink altered clock, called "Time for Awareness" by our coordinator (I think it's a perfect title).

List of materials :

- Party Pink glimmer mist (TA)
- Wedding pink glimmer mist (TA)
- Baby Santa glimmer mist (TA)
- Lille 6x6 paper pad (7Gypsies)
- Lille paper tapes (7Gypsies)
- Global paper tapes (7Gypsies)
- Screen Prints - Grand-Scale Clear Stamps - Timeless Romance
- Vintage photo distress ink
- paper flowers
- Mod Podge
- Clear granulate gel medium

The clock was white at the beginning...

A lot of decoupage, misting, and as you can see, gel medium spraying. This granulated gel medium has a fantastic effect with mist !
I sprayed the inside of the clock and find the perfect stamp for it !

Don't forget to check all the great projects of the Crew. I wish it could inspire you to create a card, a layout, or whatever you want to spread the awareness !

October, 1st layout for Stuck?! Sketch blog

Here it is ! My first contribution to the Stuck?! Sketch blog !

We have a great sketch this  month, as well as two fabulous sponsors for this challenge :

Heartfelt Creations will offer a $25 gift certificate to their online store


will offer one year subscription to one lucky winner

A third winner will be picked for a spot as guest designer for Stuck?!Sketch !

So here is the sketch :

And this is how I interpreted it :

Of course, flowers and bright colors... I kept the directions given by the chevron pattern, and turned it into a banner. Except the ribbon, everything came from the Coral and Navy stack by DCWV. And this time, I didn't cut the flowers...

Please stop by the Stuck?! Sketch blog to see all the DT's beautiful layouts and upload yours to enter the giveway !

Home decor canvas

Hello !

I have an altered canvas to show you today. I created this one few weeks ago as a birthday gift for a friend.

I used a lot of products here :

- 12x12 canvas
- white air dry clay
- Wilton molds
- gesso (Liquitex)
- modeling paste (Liquitex
- paper flowers (Prima Marketing, I Am Roses)
- metal embellishments
- lace (Hobby Lobby)
- stencils (Crafter's Workshop)
- acrylic stamps (Prima Marketing)
- old book pages
- Black Sooth distress ink (Ranger)
- Chipboard alphas (Prima Marketing)

Take a closer look...

Can you spot the leaves and the flowers under the metal flowers ? I made them with the air dry clay and some Wilton molds (I know they are made for baking, so what ?)...

I applied gesso on all the embellishments and misted them before adhering them to the canvas. I applied more mists after the adhering process too.
Take a closer look to the stenciling and stamping work...

I hope you like it ! I loved the process and I'm ready to make more of these...

See you soon !
