Art Journal Cover - Tresors De Luxe Challenge

Hi There Scrappy Friends! Today I am sharing an Art Journal Cover I created to play along with the Tresors de Luxe Challenge this month. Tresors de Luxe is an awesome Etsy shop that sells gorgeous vintage laces and embellishments. This is originally an old Textbook I picked up for free at the University where I work - I had so much fun recycling it for use as an Art Journal!  I've designed this Art Journal cover based on the colours from the gorgeous January Mood Board and using some laces from the Tresors de Luxe Shop and lots of Prima Finnabair Mediums and Embellishments and Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts! I'll be using this journal for pages inspired by music - so I included a Dusty Attic music scale chipboard as a design element on the cover too!

Holiday Magic is Found at Home

I took a little break from scrapping for the last month or so but I'm back with a new layout created to play along with a couple of challenges! I had lots of fun playing with different media on this one - definitely a good start to the New Year to get my mojo back!  I scrapped a sweet picture of my son wearing a Santa hat that I took this past December ...he's such a cutie! I definitely prefer to stay "home for the holidays" - so the title of the layout is Holiday Magic is Found at Home.

The Scraps of Darkness/Scraps of Elegance January 2015 Inspiration Board provided the inspiration for this layout - the gorgeous colours in the Aurora Borealis and the snowy branches were perfect inspiration to create a frosty layout.
I've used 7 Dots Studio "Cold Country" papers for this layout (actually from a past SOD Kit -Nov. 2013) and a holiday theme to play along with the December challenge at the 7 Dots Studio blog.
I've used a variety of Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts on the background and flowers -- together with some glamour dust added to the molding paste in masked areas and sprinkled on the gesso-painted cardboard, this layout has a lot of sparkle. I wish the photos showed the sparkle better!

That's my first layout of the New Year! I'll be back later this week with some exciting news to share - until then, Happy New Year and all the best to you in 2015!
