PL cards with different mixed media techniques

Today I show some different ways to use mixed media techniques to create your own personal PL cards at Allt Om Scrap. (And of course I show it here too). I have kept it a secret during the whole year of 2014 that I have been doing PL pages. ;-) But I have had a lot of fun and sometimes I think it is fun to create personal cards that match the photos.
On this page I did my own graffiti with words that match the photos. They are made with a water-resistant black pen and Pro Markers. You can also do your own graffiti with gelatos and a water pen. I showed a sample of that here in my blog earlier this month. You can have a look at it over here.

On this page I only added some acrylic paint in grey and two of the colors in the photos. I also splashed on some black mist.

On this page I used dabbers in different sizes to make circles in different colors. I highlighted them by using a black and a white pen.

On this last page I stamped some flowers and colored them with Pro Markers. These could also be made with Gelatos and water.

I hope you were inspired! Don´t forget to take a look at Allt Om Scrap's January graffiti challenge! There will be a cool RAK for a lucky winner!

ARTastic has a cool inspiration picture this month! It is a piece of street art by Fintan Magee. There are no criteria this month but you should tell how you were inspired.

I was inspired by the masquerade theme and the brick wall.

The photo of our daughter is taken on a festival when we passed a tent where children could dress up. She dressed up in a lot of different ways and we had so much fun. I think maybe this was even more fun than the Tivoli part of the festival and it was totally unplanned. This story explains the text used on the layout.

Here are two close-ups:

I hope you feel inspired by the street art and decide to join the challenge!! Don´t forget to pop over at ARTastic for some awesome inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

We have a FAB challenge at Allt Om Scrap this month!!! We have a colorful photo of a graffiti as inspiration and you are free to get inspired in any way. Here is my DT layout:

The inspiration Picture:
I was inspired to do my own graffiti on a white cardstock. I wrote the word "VILD", which means wild in English. When I was satisfied with the letters I draw them with a black water-resistant pen and erased the lines from the pencil. Finally I colored it with Gelatos and a water pen. It took a while, but it was quite meditative and fun! And I really like the result! I used an edited photo to get even more of a street art feeling on the layout.

I hope you feel inspired to play along!!! There is a RAK to grab for a lucky fellow.

Thanks for stopping by! Take care!

DT at Scrap The Girls!

I have some wonderful news for you!! I am now part of the design team at Scrap The Girls! They have a perfect concept with mood boards/color schemes and sketches. I love it and I am really looking forward to all the challenges!

Here is my first DT layout:

I used paint instead of flowers in my interpretation of the sketch. To be sure not to go too far away from the sketch I also stamped some flowers. The tags on the sketch turned into triangles/arrows. I also have the “journaling” and the title in the right places.

Here are two close-ups showing acrylic paint, stamped flowers etc.


Thanks for stopping by! I wish you a fabulous 2015!!
