12 Days of Christmas Inspirations, Day 2.:A birdhouse:.

 Hi there!
It´s Katarina here again, and today I´m going to share with you a cute little altered project I did last night.

This is such an easy project to do, the birdhouse made of veneer,  I found at a local flowershop, and all I did was to decoreate it and bling it up a bit.

As a first step I wanted to give the house a nice structure, so I added some Gesso from the Textural Accents sampler pack, and after that I used my Pitt Artist Pen® Big Brush  Warm Grey V274, (from the Mix & Match, Mixed Media sampler- Neutral) my inking tool, and a template to make a nice touch to the birdhouse surface.

A layout for my baby boy



Hi there!

Katarina here with today's guest designer blog post.

I´m having such a fun time being on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Guest Design team, and with my second blog post, I'm going to share a small video showing off how I worked this cool page about my baby boy.

I wanted to capture the energy my boy has in to the page, and I love this stencil with all the sprockets.. and being a mother of an energetic child it needs a big machinery of good nerves, a
fast lane to the ER and a big loving heart.

I hope that you will enjoy my video..
