Elisa - Maja Design DT

Bonjour à toutes

Aujourd'hui je suis sur le blog de Maja Design avec une autre photo de famille. Il s'agit de mon arrière-grand-mère, Elisa, l'épouse de Nicolas.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm on Maja Design blog with another family photo. It's my great-grand-mother Elisa, Nicolas's wife.




Je me suivi les couleurs du tableau d'inspiration de Dusty Attic pour réaliser cette page.

I used the Inspiration Board from Dusty Attic to realize this layout.



J'ai commencé par altérer le papier de fond avec une couche fine et irrégulière de Gesso. Puis à l'aide d'un pochoir, j'ai ajouté un motif avec de la pâte à craqueler blanche que j'ai laissé sécher naturellement.

I began to alter the background  with a thin and uneven layer Gesso. Then with a stencil, I added a design with a some white crackle paste that I let dry all night.


Le lendemain, j'ai légérement coloré la pâte à craqueler de manière inégale pour accentuer l'aspect vintage de ma page. Quelques tampons et tâches ont suffit pour terminer mon fond de page.

The day after, I added a light and uneven touch of color to the background with a chalk ink as I want to give a vintage look to my layout. Some random stamping and a few spaltters were enough to finish the background.


Avant de travailler les chipboards, je les ai peint avec du Gesso. J'ai ajouté de la pâte à craqueler sur les fleurs pour leur donner du relief. J'ai peint le sherbes avec une Silks and les fleurs avec deux tons de Twinklings H2O.

Before working on the chipboards, I painted them with Gesso. I added some crackle paste on the flowers to give them some texture. I painted the grass with a Silks and the flowers with two shades of Twinklings H2O.


J'ai coloré les feuilles, découpées dans du papier aquarelle, avec une Silks et diverses encres Chalk pour leur donner du relief.

I colored the leaves, die-cut in a watercolor paper, with a Silks and two tones of Chalk ink in order to obtain some texture too.

I began by gluing some scraps of paper on the background to give some texture that I covered with a thin layer of Gesso. I add a design with a stencil and some Modeling Paste and used Twinklings H2O to color the background and added some random stamping.

Miss Butterfly - Mixed Media Place challenge #5


Bonjour à toutes,

Voici le tout nouveau Creative Gym challenge de Mixed Media Place. C'est à mon tour de vous proposer un challenge et ce que j'aimerai c'est de vous voir travailler sur un fond noir avec toutes les couleurs de l'Arc en ciel. Allez vite voir ce que mes copines de Mixed Media Place vous ont préparé...

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm hosting the Creative Gym challenge at Mixed Media Place. I would like to see what you can do with all the colors of the rainbown on a black background. Don't miss the beautiful works of my team-mates at Mixed Media Place.



J'ai commencé par créer ma statuette : tout d'abord, j'ai fait une structure en fil de fer, puis à l'aide de polystyrène, de papier d'aluminium, de masking tape, j'ai donné du volume à ma future Miss Butterfly. Un mélange de Powertex et de Stone Art m'ont permis de modeler le buste, les bras et la tête, que j'ai complété par un petit visage de plâtre.

I started by creating my statuette : first I made a wire structure, then with polystyren, aluminium foil, masking tape, I gave some volume to the future Miss Butterfly. A mix of Powertex and Stone Art helps me to model the chest, the arms and the head, that I completed with a plaster face.


Un fois le buste sec, j'ai drapé la silhouette avec du tissu et du papier imbibé de Powertex. J'ai utilisé des Silks or por mettre en valeur le papier.

When the chest was dry, I arranged some linen and paper around the body of the statuette. I used some Gold Silks to highlight the paper.


J'ai décoré le socle à l'aide d'un pochoir et de 3D Gloss Gel. Une fois sec, j'ai recouvert le tout de Gesso noir, puis de Powertex noir. J('ai également utilisé des Silks or pour mettre en évidence le motif.

I decorated the pedestal with a stencil a 3D Matte Gel. When dry, I primed the pedestal with black Gesso, then with black Powertex. I used some Gold Silks to highlight the design too.


J'ai coloré les papillons découpés dans du papier aquarelle avec des twinkling H2Os et des Gelatos. Et je les ai finis avec de la cire or.

I colored the butterflies die-cut in a watercolor paper with Twinkling H2O and Gelatos. I finished them with a light touch of gold wax.

Instanté - 7 Dots Studio DT

Bonjour à toutes,

AUjourd'hui je suis sur le blog de 7 Dots Studio avec un nouveau projet. J'ai choisi cette magnifique photo d'Alain Le Mouée. Ses compositions florales sont pleine de délicatesse.

(Photo : Alain Le Mouée)

Pour réaliser le fond de ma page, j'ai appliqué du Gesso à l'aide d'un rouleau encreur et une légère touche de couleur (jaune et marron-rouge). Sous la photo, j'ai ajouté quelques papiers chiffonnés.

To make my background, I applied some Gesso and Silks with a brayer. Between each color I dried the paint. Under the photo, I added some crumpled papers.


J'ai utilisé plusieurs couleurs de Twinkling H2O pour colorer les fleurs et obtenir une couleur similaire à celle de la photo.

I used several colors of Twinkling to color the flowers and obtain a similar color as the one of the photo.


J'ai peint les chipboards avec une peinture Moon de Pébéo que j'ai depuis une éternité, mais je n'avais jamais tester. J'adore le résultat.

Pretty meet practical - Mixed Media Place DT

Bonjour à toutes,

Il y a quelques temps j'ai acheté plusieurs boites en bois pour présenter les serviettes en papier. Je les utilisais pour ranger mon matériel mixed-media (Glitter, Silks, ...) Mais ce n'était pas très pratique. J'ai donc décidé de faire de mes boites les tiroirs d'une petite commode que j'ai fabriqué :

Hello Sweeties,

A little while ago I bought several wooden open boxes, the kind you use to present paper napkin. I used them to keep some of my mixed-media stuff like my glass glitter, my silks, ... But it wasn't really convenient. So I decided to make a little chest for the boxes which now are drawers. And here it is :


Après avoir assemblé la commode, j'ai recouvert le carton de Gesso noir. Une fois sec, j'ai ajouté une couche de Light Modeling Paste. Une fois la pâte sèche au toucher, j'y ai pressé une plaque à embosser pour obtenir un motif.

After assembling everything together I primed the cardboard with a coat of black Gesso. When dry, I began with a coat of light molding paste. When the paste was dry to touch, I pressed a embossing folding onto it to obtain a pattern.


J'ai laissé complétement séché avant d'ajouter de la pâte à craqueler transparente, de la pâte sable blanche et des microbilles.


I then let dry completly before adding randomly some clear crackle paste, white sand paste and microbeads.


Quand touts les pâtes ont été sèches, c'est à dire le lendemain, je me suis amusée avec mes Primary Elements. Je n'ai utilisé que 3 couleurs: un bleu et deux tons or.

When all the pastes were dry, meaning the day after, I started playing with the primary elements. I used only three colors. a bright blue and to gold colors.


Les Primary Elements étant un mélange de pigment et de mica, il est nécessaire de les fixer.Pour cela j'ai utilisé un fixateur en spray plutôt que du gel medium ce qui empêche les couleurs de se mélanger.

As Primary Elements are just a blend of pigment and micas, we need to fix them.  I used a spray fixative in order to keep the colors from mixing with each other as it might happen when using gel medium.

Other products:
  • Embossing Folder - Sizzix (Morrocan) ;
  • Microbeads.
