dream TODAY

I love today's layout ! Usually, I use my daughter's picture, but today I decided to make a layout with a masquline touch. The picture was taken by my friend who loves airplanes. I changed the color a bit for a nostalgic feel. I love airplanes too, and traveling...I use to spend most of the money I earned for travelling when I was in my twenties. Those memories are unforgettable and precious. This is the sketch that I followed. The sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.
今日はお気に入りのレイアウト!いつも娘の写真を使って作品を作るのですが、今回は少し男っぽく?してみました。写真は、飛行機好きの友達が撮ったものです。懐かしい雰囲気にしたかったので、少し色を変えさせてもらいました。私も飛行機大好き!そして旅行大好き!!20代の頃は、働いたお金をほとんど旅行に使っていました。その頃の思い出は、とても貴重で忘れられない宝物です♡ Stuck?! Sketches のスケッチを元にして作りました。

I teared scraps of paper and inked the edges for an aged look. Layering is my favorite, and this is no exception. I used many metal and wooden parts and tried to limit the colors that I use. It's been a while since I used blue paper for a background and I love how it turned out! Here are some close-ups:
ペーパーの端をやぶいてインクで汚し、古びた雰囲気にしました。何枚もペーパーを重ねるのが大好きなので、今回も♪ メタルや木のパーツをたくさん使い、色の数を抑えました。ブルーのペーパーを背景に使うのは久しぶり!新鮮で気に入ってます♡

The challenge will be closed on May 29th. I'm glad I finished it on time!!

Today's challenge is the Scrap Our Stash Sketch + (3) Challenge.
I chose MyMind's Eye (paper and rub-ons), Naples Yellow and Newsprint, and Overlay.
今日は、Scrap Our Stash Sketch + (3) Challenge です。
The main colors of this layout is red, yellow, gold and black. I put some metallic gold texture paste in some parts of the background. Subtle but nice:) I used a lot of chipboard and rub-ons. I love layering and dimention! I inked the title with black ink. It matches well with the other black embellies and rub-ons, and spices up the layout. Here are some close-ups:

The challenge closes on May 29th, so hurry if you want to join !!

Today I made a layout based on the Book Inspired Challenge for Scrap Our Stash .
今日のレイアウトはScrap Our Stash のブックカバーチャレンジです。

 What jumped in my eyes first was the big heart. I wanted to make it the main embellishment in my layout. I was also inspired by the woman; it reminded me of this picture that I used in the layout. We went to Shirahama beach in Wakayama, and we saw fireworks there. We had never seen big fireworks this near! So huge and beautiful.
I misted little hearts with blue ink, and for the big heart, I put frills around it to make it stand out. I used a lot of flowers which is one of the challenges and scattered sequins in the layout. To match the atmosphere, I changed the color of the picture. I love how it turned out :) Here are some close-ups:


The challenge is open til May 29th. I really love Book Challenges, and you should see the other layouts made by the designers too!! So lovely and inspiring.

Today's layout is based on this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches
Here is the sketch :)
今日のレイアウトは Stuck?! Sketches からのこちらのスケッチです。


The picture is my daughter picking peaches. We love peaches, but because it was such a hot day, all the peaches were hot and soft and tasted like a compote !! Too bad...but we enjoyed the picking anyway. (and we got the nice and cool ones afterwards!!)

The paper I used was very vivid, so I used gesso to make it a little blurry. I layered some paper and popped up some of the die cuts including the title. I used some flowers and a ribbon that matches the paper, and scattered enamel dots. Here are some close-ups;
桃狩りをした時の写真を使いました。桃は家族みんな大好きなのですが、この日は真夏のとても暑い日で、桃が熱く柔らかく、コンポートのようになってしまっていました(笑) 残念すぎる!でも採るのは楽しかったです♪(後で冷えたのも食べました!!)

The challenge is open til May 29th. Another challenge has started , so be sure to check that too !!
