one year

My sister has been married for a year now. Since I made the wedding cake last year and we unfortunately had to use the upper tier (instead of deepfreezing it so they could eat it now), I had to make a new cake to celebrate their one year anniversary. It became a simple cake in the colors of the original cake.

And of course I also made a card for them. It's not my favourite, but I like that I could use a page from a dictionary with the word 'gelukkig' (happy) on it.

I'm reorganizing and redecorating my scrapbook room. It's not done yet... I just can't decide what should go where and which new things I should buy... Life is difficult. ;)
Have good week and don't stress out!

never stop dreaming

I've bought some kind of puffy paint about a year ago and I realised I never used it. So, I thought it was time to do so.
To create some texture on this page, I started off with putting on some masking tape. Just the regular type you use for painting. Next I smeared some pearlescent paint on top of it to give it some shimmer.
Then I grabbed a mask and sprayed some teal glimmer mist through it. I got another mask and smeared some structure paste through that one to give the edges some interest. I love how that turned out.
After that I got some of my stamps out (mostly Prima stamps) and stamped in random spots without reinking. Then I took the puffy paint and wrote the word 'dreaming' with it. The last thing I did was putting some mini alphabet stickers down to spell 'never stop'.

My tulips looked very nice in front of it. ;)
I have more to share with you soon. But this is all for now, because I'm off to a festival (bevrijdingsfestival for the Dutch readers). Have a great day!
