Hello Clique Friends!! Valeska here today sharing a 12x12 layout made for our blog category "Let's go". The idea is to share with you something about a journey or road trip, and some curiosities about the place or event. I chose a sweet memory from my son that was when he finished his first young triathlon competition in Daytona Beach in December 2020. This competition is called Challenge Daytona and takes place once a year in the city of Daytona Beach, Florida. The great thing about it is that the competition takes place at the Daytona International Speedway circuit. Imagine the thrill of running on the track where cars go super fast ... it's amazing!
Now, let's talk a little bit about the project and how I created it. I used only two patterned papers from the Best Kid Ever Limited Edition kit, I decided to mix only the Cocoa Vanilla Studio papers that you will find in the kit. On a white cardstock, I made some mixed-media with blue and orange watercolor. I cut one of the papers into large triangles, used the front and back of the paper, and sewed them on the white cardstock with orange thread to highlight.
I also decided to use Paige Taylor's cut file (BRAVE) and lined it with patterned papers from the paper card sheet. Besides that I sewed a few times on top of the cut file to give it even more volume and texture, so I glued it with 3D stickers.
Also you can find in the kit, enamel dots that goes perfectly with the color palete, and I love to use them in my projects. Some elements that I used in this layout I already had in my stash, like phrase stickers and some embellishments.
I placed the photo practically in the middle of the layout, and added layers of paper behind it and glued it with 3D stickers as well to gain more volume. I like to use this feature so that our eyes fall directly where it is highlighted.
I hope you've been inspired and be sure to stop by Clique International Shop to see how many beautiful kits are waiting for you there. Thanks for stopping by today!
Hello and Happy New Year's Eve to Everyone :-) It's Piroska here today on the Clique International blog, I hope you all had a very merry Christmas holiday and now you are ready to say goodbye to this ...(you name it) year. Let me show you a layout of our Christmas Eve, what was everything but not usual! Because of the pandemic we couldn't meet my parents, so we celebrated 300 kilometers away from each other, and opened our presents while having a video chat. I have never ever had a Christmas when I did not see my parents... it was heartbreaking when I first realised that this is going to happen this Christmas... But then we decided to celebrate and enjoy it anyway, and had a holly jolly Christmas, no matter what! ;-)
For my layout I first cut the Holly Jolly Christmas cut file of CUT to YOU from white cardstock. I cut it large, because I wanted to use it as a highlight of my page and backed it with some patterned papers of the Mistletoe kit , featuring the Muérdago collection of Mintopia Studio.
For my background I used a white cardstock which I covered with clear gesso first. Then I started to use my Pastel Dreams Prima Confenctions Watercolors, painting with Lemonade, Rose and Sea Dream colours onto it. When it was dry I added some splashes with my Heidi Swapp Color Shine, I used Blush, Seafoam and Gold colours.
When everything was dry, I glued down the cut file on the link side, using heavy cardstock on the back to add some dimension to it. I added the photo on the right, and matted it on some patterned papers of the Muérdago collection.
I added some cut outs and puffy stickers for decoration, and some alphabeth stickers to continue the title. Last I added a self-made macramé Christmas tree for the Crossover challenge of Clique International.
Trying out new things is so much fun! I enjoyed making some macrame trees very much, I'm going to add some to my December Daily album too, it is very addicting ;-) And pairing unusal crafts with scrapbooking is awesome! I hope you are going to have some creative time in 2021 too! We'll be here to inspire you!
