Graffiti Bridge – Color Fun

This weekend was reveal day at Cocoa Daisy and we adjoined it with a fun crop! The May Kit called Graffiti Bridge has amazing colors- I had a lot of fun playing with it

I found this photo in a thrift store. The Journaling reads:

Grete, Martha and Hermine couldn’t be more different and yet they loved and supported each other all the time. They knew Grete didn’t want to marry Wilhelm and they promised her to support her however her struggles with father would end up! 1913

supplies: Cocoa Daisy May Kit, Maya Mist, Ranger Dabber, Derwent Inktense Blocks, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L MyStik

The next layout was inspired by Anna Björklund (so looking forward seeing thisgirl the coming weekend at the Scrapbooking med Hjärta Event in Sweden), who challenged us to create a layout with a flap…like a picnic basket:

Besides the kit I used: Ranger Dylusions, Liquitex Ink, Eco Green Crafts Glass Glintz, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L MyStik and Crafty Power Tape

I used some Liquitex Ink of the Glass Glintz – easy to heat up because it is recycled glass – so no worries with the heat.

I just had fun using vibrant colors inside

I manipulated the photo by using also Liquitex Ink on top – so love the colors and possibilities of them!

The next layout was inspired by a color challenge by Lisa Saunders– she is amazing !

Just a little not to self…;) I used the Cocoa Daisy Stamps with Liquitex Ink- can you say addicted? LOL

What is your favorite paint medium lately?

Have a gorgeous creative day!

Die Farben wie immer genial und das mit dem Foto und der Liquitex Tinte – ist mir absolut unklar, keinen Tau wie Du das gemacht hast und das LIEBE ich an Dir ;-) Man sieht was und will es lernen und es ist nicht eh klar und kann es aus dem FF liften – Sehr Genial! Danke fürs Zeigen!

    I like how you placed the ribbon with the pin and put the alphas on to of it.
    Colorful post Nat. Cant wait to get my monthly kit. I too order photos from of people that I don’t know and create lives for them. Lots of fun since I don’t have any vintage photos of my own family.

    The colors in these layouts are amazing, Nathalie! Love the vibrancy…I’ll have to check out the May kit to see how much of that is Cocoa Daisy & how much is you. Regardless, the outcome is amazing, so it seems like a great marriage. xo

    I love the story behind the old photo LOL Poor Grete! You know I usually “imagine” the lives of the others while on vacation? It is my favourite pastime those lazy days hanging on the beach or the pool. :)
