Something different

People often recognize my work by the beautiful pastel colors. I have this huge addiction to anything blush or mint colored with a hint of gold. If i see it...i need to have it haha But these photos of my boys just screamed Urban and cool to me. So i went for a different color scheme and made something different. These colors are actually my favorite boy colors! My mom always makes fun of my boy layouts and clothes... I tend to go for denim, mustard and mint. Love this combo!

It's been a while since i played with paint and created a mixed media piece. This canvas is called writings on the wall. I played with texture paste, stencils and lot's of color. I wasn't too sure how i felt about this piece at first, but i like it now. It suits me :)

I am also working on some Faber Castell gelatos projects, these little crayons are amazing! Have you ever tried working with gelatos? They are so fun and easy! To be continued...
I had 4 ladies visiting me who wanted to work with the Fuse tool. They were such natural talents! We had a fun afternoon creating a few projects with this tool. I was told that they don't scrapbook so we created a few cards.

I have been drawing in my Jolie journal with my Schneider pens. They are so easy to work with! I love the triangle shape that fits nicely between your fingers. The colors are so pretty and i am happy they are not all brights.
I know the Pokemon Go game was a huge Summer hype, but we are still loving it over here. This game has giving us a lot of outside playtime. I often forget, but my new goal is to take lot's of Pokemon Go photos and create a mini album with them. I am not very into mini albums, but this just calls for a fun mini using these precious photos. I am thinking about creating a set of my own Project Life cards for this. Should be fun!

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping :)

Embellish it! and Demonstration

2017 is here and i started this year with my Project Life workshop Embellish It! It was such a fun day and the ladies made some beautiful projects. We made two different layouts with techniques to make our own embellishments.
Very proud of my pretty white studio. I can find anything i need in there. On my Facebook page i have a live video from my studio, if you would like to see it. www.facebook.com/fauvevanmaanen
I have an article in the new Hobbyhandig magazine about marbling. Check it out! It is a really fun technique and the magazine is full of cool DIY projects.
Here are some sneaks of a few layouts i made recently. They will be published in the Australian magazine Scrapbook Memories. I cannot wait to see them!
This Saturday the 28th of January, i was invited for a Project Life demonstration at Noor Design in Waspik. I will share and show you more about Project Life and the fun new WRMK Frame Punch Board. Do i see you there?
