Happy new year to you all!

It’s a new year, and it’s also a new month. That means new challenges and new DT layouts to show. ARTastic have an awesome challenge this month. They also have a new sponsor for domestic participants and are offering a guest DT spot for non Austrian winners. :) What you should do to be a lucky winner is to get inspired by the incredibly 3D chalk art work ‘My Blue Angel’ by Jenny McCracken. The criteria are to use chalk or wings on your layout. Here is my take on the challenge and I used both chalk (Pan Pastel) and wings.
On the background I used Pan Pastel, Distress Ink on a template and splashed some acrylic paint. I also stamped some flowers. I cut two holes in the picture for the wings. My attempt was to create a fantasy garden to go with the wings. :)
Some close-ups:

I haven’t had a lot of time and energy left for scrapbooking and blog hopping recently but I will soon have time to visit you and look at all the gorgeous things you have created. :)
Thanks for looking!!! I wish you all a FABOLOUS 2013!


  1. Oh see the beautiful butterfly :) Happy new year to you too my friend!

  2. Hvilken søt og morsom LO og bilde, og ideen å skjære til og plassere sommerfugl vinger er jo så kreativt...
    Håper du hadde en fin jul. Ønsker deg godt nytt år og Happy Scrap!!!!

  3. Oh Helene, this is a really beautiful page! I really love your sweet wings you have added to this gorgeous photo of your DD. But I especially love your backdrop you have created...it really is so wonderful! xx


  4. It is as few as beautiful as ever ...!

  5. Happy New Year to you Helene. I love your take on the challenge today particularly the soft and gentle colours to show off your delightful photo so well. The combination of papers and small colourful details works so well.

  6. Just BEAUTIFUL as always Helene. Cheers Di xo

  7. Denna är urläcker... när jag såg den första gången inne hos ARTastic tog det ett tag innan jag såg vingarna... de ser som bara ut att höra hemma där ;)

  8. What a fantastic layout! I'm so glad I found your blog. Very Inspiring. The blinkie is adorable too.
