The Secret... another LO for Scraps of Elegance

I am working with new papers from Scraps of Elegance /yummy!!!!/ but for today I have LO made with " Yestardays".
I like to develop fav photos in sepia and black and white and I used the sepia version for my last LO this month.

Sama pracuje już z czerwcowymi papierami z Scraps of Elegance /są cudowne i możecie je zamówić również w Polsce!/ ale dzis pokaże Wam jeszcze ostatnie majowe LO.
Lubię wywoływać ulubione zdjęcia także w wersji sepia i czarno-białej i właśnie jedno z takich użyłam do LO The Secret..

All papers and flowers from Scraps of Elegance, stamps from Magenta and chipboard from Scrapiniec.
I aslo created one of my flowers using "napkin" for Scrap for Help challenge.

100 dresses and a new Berry 71 Bleu challenge!

In the last two days I invited you to play in two challenges , on the 1st at SATW and on the 2nd  at Inkido and today...
I have a pleasure to host a new challenge at Berry 71 Bleu this month.
It's a very special one since we also collaborate with OUAS challenge!
First you have to use OUAS sketch and rules about journaling, all our Design Team did it too and you will see our work during the month.
 Second, you have to incorporate work with chipboards on your projects.
You can use any chipboards you have but out Design Team was lucky to work with beautiful chipboards from Scrap FX. 
Thank you again Jill for this oportunity!
 This is a little step by step;
  I was on Scrap FX DT for 12 months but I have to admit I still like to work with those chipboards. For my Berry 71 Bleu project I  wanted to work with the clock and dress form.

First I painted 2 chipboards with gesso and then with structural paste.

 To match my clock with papers I painted it with dark pink and black acrylic paint. Dress form was painted only with black paint in gloss.

I hope you will like our new challenge a lot, just have a look how many wonderful prizes we have for you from all our sponsors this month!
As a sponsor coordinator for Berry 71 Bleu I am very proud to have all those beautiful collections from our sponsors from Poland, Canada and Australia for you!

Scrap Around The World , the New Challenge for YOU!

I have a great news for you today and I am very proud of the fact I am a part of this news!
There is a new, great place for us to play.

Scrap Around The World

Mam dziś dla Was fantastyczną wiadomość i jestem bardzo dumna z tego iż mam w tym swój udział.
W świecie scrapbookingu pojawiło sie nowe, wspaniałe miejsce.
Scrap Around the Word

You can read here info from Helen;

"We are a group of 14 women from all around the globe, of different ages, cultures & circumstances, united by our love of scrapbooking!  It is a universal language that we all understand!!
That's why I chose the name 'Scrap Around the World', because, literally, that is what we are all doing :)
Will you join us on our journey every month?  I do hope so!
Our site is a 'Challenge Blog' meaning that it is here to inspire & there is no financial reward for myself or any of my design team.  What we WOULD really appreciate is your support, because that would just be FUN & that is ultimately what scrapbooking is all about!
We are on the look out for players to take part in our challenges & make it a roaring success & followers to support us & encourage sponsorship so please join our blog & follow us officially!  
We are hoping to be able to offer you monthly challenges with great prizes & guest designer opportunities too so let's do this thing & have some fun!!
Remember to please leave some love for us in the comments - 
so often it's encouraging words that keep people going!!


May 2013 Challenge 1

Each month we will present you with a moodboard & a sketch, together with a mood board/sketch combo image for you to save to your computer & upload to your blog when taking part in our challenges.  

This month we have Agnieszka Bellaidea  /it's me:)/to thank for this gorgeous mood board!

She is our challenge host this month & will be monitoring the comments on this post
 & answering any questions you may have (also directly in the comments).

All you need to do is be inspired by the mood board (in ANY way) & use our sketch as your starting point.  

How to use our sketches
As you would any other sketch.  We would like to see that it definitely inspired you & was your 'starting point' but you can 'make it your own' by flipping it, turning it, inverting it & moving things about if you like.  You can also change the photo orientation and number of photos to be as few or as many as you like. 

**** the above image MUST appear on the blog post containing your challenge entry please****

You also need to mention that you are playing along with the current challenge at Scrap Around The World & link up to it please :)
How to use our mood boards

Our mood boards are for your INSPIRATION only.  You can be inspired by one of the images, all of the images, or any number of them, or even parts thereof.
For example, on this board you may be inspired by the colours (either all of them or just one, two or more) but you do not have to use any colours on the board if you don't want to.

Other examples of inspiration from this board, that you could use on your layouts are :-
Beads, circles, fringing, cracks, texture, leather, chandeliers, turquoise, rust (colour or rusty elements) ie brass/metal.  Feathers, fluff, fibres, ombre effects, flowers, bows, lace, flowersoft & filigree work (fine cut embellishments such as laser chipboard with detailed designs).
It's entirely up to you!  Be Inspired in any way!!
This is my take.
I used papers from 13 arts, chipboards from Wycinanka, masks from Prima and stamps from Inkido.

Oto moja pierwsza praca dla SATW.  Użyłam papierów z 13 arts, tekturek z Wycinanki, masek z Prima i stempli z Inkido
You have to visit our new blog HERE and see all the beautiful creations from so talented DT!
