Discovering trees in Quebec

Good morning!
Today, I want to show you a page of my travel notebook. It’s not an actual travel notebook, as I don’t speak about traveling around the globe. But it’s a notebook in which I like to write my precious moments of life. And last month, I had one of these…

My sister visited me (a total surprise!) from Europe for a few days and we had fantastic moments together. I had not seen her for three years… it’s a long time!
One of the characteristics of my sister is that she loves trees (“arbres” in French). She loves to learn all the different species. She had a fantastic time discovering that the species were so different than in Europe. And I’ve learned a lot during her stay.

As the picture shows it, I used the left page to explain how I’ve loved to discover my own environment with fresh eyes. I used the Post Card die cut, as it was perfect to write down this memory.

I added a big tag on the right page. This tag indicates all the trees we have seen during her stay (with their latine names). And then I used the leaves die cuts that I love so much.

As there is a touch of gold on the leaf and that leaves looks like gold in fall, I added some gold touch (like the title, the washi tape in the middle and the little drops of ink).

I really love the result! And I hope you will feel inspired by my notebook!

Hello there!

I am back, today, with a new project using the beautiful Swan Lake kit.  I love the versatility of the kit, as it was so easy to use  when documenting  a picture of my small nephew rolling in the fallen leaves.

I used a  bit of mixed media on the background, and just a bit of the colors peek from behind the picture and all the layers (unfortunately, I hadn’t realize that the video had stopped taping while i worked on the background, my apologies!).  To create the background, I splashed water drops all over the area i wanted to cover, and then added splatter drops of the Prima watercolor palettes;  using a wet brush, i guided the paint droplets until the entire area is cover. Once it dried, I used the Prima Metallic Palette -found in the Clique store– to add color and shine to the background.

I used pieces from the Kate, Joyful, You and Me, and Sunshine papers -from the Gather collection included in the main Swan Lake kit – to create the layers behind the picture.  I used the skeleton leaves from last month’s Sapphire kit, along with the newsprint leaves from the die-cut pack  on the main kit, and the leaves on the chipboard from this month’s  Swan Lake Kit add-ons.  I created the title using one of the kraft tags included in the kit.  I love all the exclusive printables!, and they are perfect to add small details around the picture.  Here are a few close ups:

To finished the page, i used one of my rotary stamps to add more detail to the background;  i also added a few of the sequins included in the Swan Lake kit, to add more shine to the page.  Here is the final layout:

Like i said before, this month’s Swan Lake kit is so easy to use due to its versatility.  It was so easy to due a boy layout with the beautiful papers included in the kit.  Here is the video of how the page came together  -please apologize that the video had stopped while i worked on the background, and I realized way too late-:

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to visit the store to check this month’s Swan Lake kit, and all the beautiful add ons that are available (the metallic Prima watercolor palette is so great to add shimmer to any project).  Remember you can use any DT’s code to receive a discount on your purchase.

 

Thanks for visiting today!,
