Brotherly Love - Layout

Hello my friends!
Today is Luciana with you, after a long time without post!
This month we were challenged, the idea was to inspire ourselves in other designers of our team, and make the project inspired by your designer.
I chose friend Lisa Schill Moen. It has a simpler style, works with coordinated elements in a very cool way.
The hardest thing is to do a layot with only paper and cutouts and make it look beautiful! Without using other elements such as chipboard pieces, buttons, paste, flowers, etc.
Elements that I usually use and a lot in my projects.
But it's always good to get out of our comfort zone and make the neat scrapbook!
Our mood board this month is inspired by our parents.

This is my page.
I started the layout layout, overlapping the two chosen roles. Lastly I put a textured white cardstock. I used coordinated papers from the same collection, unfortunately I do not remember which brand are these papers.

I used a Mandarin Blush pigment from Coloarte in the background. Its glow is subtle, just to tone the background.
I used some Simple Stories stickers to decorate.
On the white cardstock I made the false seam, I stuck it and passed the thin black pen.

I put the title with alphabet stickers.
With scraps of torn paper I made details on the page, this one I used the stapler.

The jar is a cut of the paper itself, and I used pieces of tangled line.

I did a jornaling, pasted another golden title with alphabet sticker and stars.

This is Lisa's page that inspired me!

 I hope you enjoy and are inspired to participate in our challenge!

"Explore" Layout

Hi, everyone. Carol Theng today, sharing a layout. This month we are copying a designer's style. And I copied Dawid Trzepizor's style.

Loved his style. And I tried my best, not to add flowers to my layout. It's difficult with my itchy fingers. LOL

Here's what I made:


Being a mother to these 2 cuties is a privilege and so much fun. I really hope my kids will stop growing!!!!!

To create the background, I layered several pieces of different sized patterned papers. Inked some edges with distress inks. Then use 3 mists to draw lines along the papers, using the mist head part(no idea whats it called).

Stamped randomly around the layered papers. Adhered the chipboard shapes and added enamel dots.

Painted the chipboard titles with black acrylic paint.

Hope you enjoy my sharing. Do join us for our January moodboard challenge. Have fun.

Baby Cards with Candy

Hi everyone welcome to my first 2019 blog post for Off The Rails .
wow how time is flying.

We the designers where set a challenge this month to choose another designers style.
I t was hard but I chose Luciana Warnouski.
I have been a follower of her for a long time. I just love her work.
I choose this layout as it has white space and it is something
I struggle with. I gave myself a double challenge to create a card using her layout.
So here goes....
I made two baby cards one for a girl and one for a boy.

And this is Luciana's layout I followed

A little bit of mixed  media on this one.

I started with a 6x6 inch card base.
Cut a piece of pattern paper at 57/8 x 5 7/8 inches.
Cut a plain white piece of cardstock at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches
Using this piece of cardstock, spray with the mist.
Dry this well.
Then sprinkle the pixie powder carefully over the card. and then spray with the water.
Dry this well.
Using the script stamp and the ink pad, stamp in three corners.
Now add all your embellishments.
And using glue add to the petals of the flowers, along the phrase
and here and there around the edge of the card.
Then sprinkle with clear glitter to give some bling.
Don't worry if it looks white the glue will dry and it will be clear.
Tape the pattern paper to the front of the card base.
then add the decorated piece using foam tape.

I have made a card in pink as well. I have used the same tehniques
for that one as well.
