Over the rainbow by Sanderijn de Bruin

Dreamscapes tags are really gorgeous, and they inspired me to use them for the colour challenge mood board at Lindy’s Stammp Gang. I had so much fun creating these tags. And the making of is actually quite simple.

I started with covering both tags with clear gesso, and when dry, I added triangle and geometry patterns with the new Dreamscapes stencils and modelling paste.

Next I added colour by using spray’s from Lindy’s Stamp Gang.

Sometimes I held the tags a little bit up and down to let the inks move. I dried it with the heattool.

When they were dry, I took some 6 x 6 papers from Dreamscape collection and sew the tags on the paper. I cut them out and used a paper distresser for the edges.

Then I added my flowers and metal embellishments. I added some Finnabair waxes too on the metal embellishments and a little bit on the edges of the paper.

Last step, gently spray the word stickers and ribbon in matching colours and add them to your tags.

Angelic by Sanderijn de Bruin

The month May is the month where we celebrate Mother’s day. For me this means something to treasure, because God has given me the most precious gift of all: a child.

In my situation particularly, it didn’t happen ‘just like that’. I feel so very blessed, to have this beautiful little girl in my life, who makes my heart full of joy every day. And yes, motherhood is not always easy, believe me, but seeing her growing up, makes it all worth while.

Seeing this photo of her, sunlight in her hair, she almost looks like an angel. The only thing I want for her, is to grow up in peace, having a loving home, where she feels safe and free to follow her dreams.

The new Dreamscape collection from 7 Dots Studio has the exact paper perfect for pictures like these.

I really love the pattern of the paper and didn’t want to do too much mixed media works on it, so I decided to create a soft, elegant and clean layout.

Because sometimes one picture says it all.
If you wish to know how I made this layout please watch the video below.

Embrace you inner child by Sanderijn de Bruin

Hi everybody,
I have to say, those new collections from 7 Dots Studio, they are heavenly gorgeous… You have to check them out, if you didn’t already!

Deciding which paper to pick first, man was that difficult! But I let myself be inspired by the new May moodboard from Berry71bleu, and I had this picture of my daughter, running from the hill, between the flowers, and it matched so perfectly with the paper Oil Spil from Hazy Days, so I made this happy layout.

I used the birds on a wire stencil first, with white gesso. When it was dry I took a blend of yellow mica, acrylic paint and light paste to add the chevron stencil pattern. Then I stamped the grungy clear stamp from Hazy Days with black gesso just randomly over it. I love this textured, grungy background, it gives such a opportunity to get messy!

I build up my page with lace, cheese cloth, tags and die cuts elements. I finished by adding words stickers, flowers, pearls, glass beads, the title flair and turquoise ink splatters.

Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn
