Two day sago I discovered that I was chosen to get the monthly RAK on the Color room and YUPIIII, I'm still super excited and ful of ctreative energy. In this occasion I want to show the project I had in my mind for my scrapbook class on the 12 th of June in Ljubljana (for joining please e -mail at petramilitarev@gmail.com ). I love this project because from the outside it seems just a regular book but it really carries a treasure inside!!! The title is "My family....My treasure". This work is done in the color palette of the Color room for this week: two different greens and violet. Also this project requred some extra time because is actually made from a real book but the final result is what I wanted. So...if you want to realize this wonderful project join me on the 12th of June when dreams will be created!!! What you need to do is just to bring an old book because I'll prepare everything else for you to make this deliscious treasure!

Home is where your heart is

I repainted my living room and did quite a change in the decorations. While working on this change I bought at IKEA this frame and initially I wanted to put into it just a photo of the family but then I decided to make it a little more intresting. I udes several Tim Holtz elements and also used the Alterations. I cut out several wings and instead putting just one I formed two big wings with the small one and I think they look like real. The swirls are silver and gold but here in the photos is not very visible. Anyway, I have a new scrapbook frame in the centre of my living room and it fits perfectly!

Urška's birthday

Today is Urška's birthday. She is a very talented artist in many ways. Lately she is known as an amazing jewelry designer and I have to say that her creations sre amazing. I hope she'll soon make a blog because you have to see this pieces of art. For her birthday I wanted something special and I decided to do some painting. This is a portrait of her and her sweet son. I know she is having a great party and I'd love to be with her but unfortunatly she lives far away and so there the occasions to see each other are rare but on the other hand very prescious and cherished!!

So....Happy birthday my dear friend and have a wonderful life!

Curious boy

I love the color combination of the palette #6 of the Color room. In this LO I used the Tattered angels glimmer screens and just some regular black acrylic paint for the stamping of the decorative corners and I love the uneven effect. In this case I also did some Tim Holtz masking but I used the negative mask.






I'd like to present you a newborn idea: a cardboard flower with the Zutter wires that I think is perfect for the boy LOs.

Rock

The monthly challenge on These are a few of my favorite things (in fact you have to pop over because there is going on something scrappy-deliscious!!!) was my favorite music and I decided to make a mini for my husband. He is a drummer and I was thinking this mini would be a perfect place for his music career memories.
For the cover I made a big paper flower and glitter alphas...



I had a bag of the Hard Rock Cafe and I used it for the background of the pocket. On the edge of the pocket I glued an old belt and I think it gives a true rock atmosphere...


A chipboard glitter crown pocket for the tags....



Something new in this album are the masks that I did on my own using the acetate like this guittar mask....




Another pocket - heart shaped this time...










Another mask I made in this page - a vintage cassette! I used some doll discs that I covered with acrylic pait to create an old vinyl!


Thank you so much for your visit and have a wonderfull day!

The look

It's time for the next palette in the Color room and this time they are warm and cozy. I decided to use this Kian's photo where he looks just like a grown up and has a wonderful and charming look. It's true that everytime I tell him to stay still for a photo he begins to make silly faces but this time I was lucky and captured an original expression....to scrap :-)


Some close ups:

"No place like home" globe tutorial

I receved many e-mails on how to make the Globe "No place like home" so I decided to make a post about it. So, here we go:
First of all you need to blow two small ballons to obtain two bases for your globe. Place them in two little bowls that will hold them i place.

TIP: put some sand in the baloons that will prevent them from overturning.



The next thing is to cover them a half with some tissue paper or some other paper combined with mod podge or a mixture of water and flour which makes a perfect glue. Let them dry well for a day and than pop the baloons and carefully cut the two halfs of the sphere on the edges in a way that they mach perfectly.
TIP: It's better to cover the baloons a little more than a half so you can figure out how you have to cut to get two perfect halfs.


Then you take 4 pieces of wire and jon them in the midlle and place the joined part in the midlle of the half sphere and then procede with glueing the wire with the glue gun to make it stronger.



I covered the outside part with the "Paper perfect" (Decoart) with the spatula to make the outside surface look like real paper

The next thing is the painting. I painted an antique map on it but you can choose a different way to adorn your globe. Than you have to do the same wire work on the outside like you did on the inside. You take 4 pieces of wire, join in the middle and place it on the top of the sphere.



Take each wire and fix it with the staples to get 8 equal parts. Don't be afraid about the staples showing because you'll cover them with some ribbon or lace.




Cut some stripes of patterned paper and glue it on the inside of the half sphere - blue for the sky and green for the grass. Start in the centre and than proceed by kepping always the midle of each stripe in the centre but moving the rest of it to cover the entire half sphere with a fan looking base.



Cut the stripes at the edge of the half sphere and again fix them with the staples.



Than you have to join the two half spheres together and decorate the globe in a way you want. I made just a tiny paper house but there are many ways to use this globe and things you can put inside. Let me know what theme you decided to use for this project!

By the way: happy national scrapbooking day to everyone and a special thank you goes also to the TAFOMFT that selected this project for the monhly challenge! Thank you girls - I really enjoy your company!
