Last Sunday was Mother’s day and I have received a bunch of gifts from my daughter !!  She will be 8 in coming July .. and she is becoming more of my friend than a daughter with each passing day !! I am enjoying each and every moment of our relationship , enjoying this lovely journey of motherhood !! My layout is just portrayal of that !! ( For certain security reasons I am restraining myself from using her photograph , I am planning to replace this photo with ours later ) ❤

Hi Friends ,

Today I am presenting a layout for 7 dots studio !! I love the subject this month , “My Favorite Things ” !! Craft n Coffee are my addiction beside that I love my freedom very much !! If there are too many conditions in anything , then I started to feel suffocated !! Routine is boring in my life , I love to break routines 🙂 !! My another favorite thing is travel by road , long drive is my most favorite thing !!

I tried to portray my true feeling through this layout !!

 

I have used Writers Block paper collection from 7 dots studio paper collection !! I have created the background with embossing ,stamping and obviously Lindy’s spray !! Recently I am in love with this earth-tone colors very much !! I have used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Dusty attic chipboards !! at the end added my favorite Cuts2luv badges ( just perfect for my layout ) and my all time favorite 7 dots studios sticker collection !!

Imperfectly Perfect..

Hi friends ,

Today I was trying some image transfer with Ink Jet Printer !! First i made a small card to play Marta’s playing card challenge !! In second try , it came out really good . Then I have done a small journal page with image transfer technique !! I learnt this from a workshop of Nathalie Kalbach and Birgit Koopsen !! 

Here is my journal page:-

1

and below is my playing card :-

18194969_1358442107580013_8931090073352462444_n

And below step by step tutorial ..

  1. I have taken the printout in premium quality project paper :-

unnamed

2. I put Matte Gel medium on watercolor paper and stick the photo on it !!

unnamed (1)

there should be no bubble or fold between the papers .

3. Now dry  the paper thoroughly with heat gun :-

unnamed (2)

4. Then wet the paper  thoroughly :-

unnamed (3)

5. Then start to rub the paper with hand .. be careful don’t rub too hard.. ( sorry about my  messy table ) 😀

unnamed (4)

you could feel the whole picture become wet and transparent like photo ..

6. Then no more rubbing ..just peel-off the paper ..

unnamed (5)

7 . here is the outcome :-

unnamed (6)

I have outlined the eyes and lips ..remember you would get a FLIPPED image 🙂

then I made some touch-up on the picture :-

unnamed (7)

I love this distress look..

Friends,  don’t think i am master in this .. i made some terrible transfer today before my journal transfer..

unnamed (8)

Here I missed the eyes !! LOL !!

This below one is a result of using normal xerox paper .. I think its beautiful for watercolor journal !! What do you say ?

unnamed (9)

Now the image of the paper :-

unnamed (10)

Few tips I got from Nat and Birgit :-

  1. If you want perfect look transfer , go for laser printer !!
  2. More contrast in your photo makes better transfer image !!
  3. Avoid gray in the photo as it is going to make your photo blurry !!

Thank you friends, I am very newbie .If I missed out anything , please don’t hesitate to comment !!

Love,

Torsa

Hold on tight to your dreams …

Hi friends,

Today I am here to present my latest layout I have created with Black , white and Orange color !! When I first saw the challenge theme I was pretty sure I would use Teal ( My all time favorite color ) !! But few days ago I saw a video tutorial of Di on vibrant orange .. and I loved that so much ( It was somewhere back in my mind )  !! So I change my mind.. and selected Orange , out of my comfort zone!!

1.1.1

I have used my favorite 7 dots studio’s Cotton Candy Dreams collection !! I have used Lindy’s spray mist for black , but I didn’t have any vivid orange mist ( as I am not very much fond of orange ) but my magical shakers saved me here !! 😀

I have used Prima stencil and modeling paste to create the texture and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers !! I have colored them orange  !! I have used Dusty Attic feathers chipboards and colored then with pastel shades ,as I wanted my layout in a subtle tone !! At last my favorite Cuts2luv flair !!

Added the title also from Dusty Attic !! and quotes ” Hold on tight to your dreams “ which is exact match for my layout !!

Then I started to add splatters !! I wanted a matte look for my layout and I am satisfied with the look  !!

below are few close ups :
