A lovely day

Hello hello!
A u mnie wciaz zimowo i wciaz kolorowo-w chlodnych barwach. Tak wlasnie jak temat wyzwania 7 Dots Studio na ktore zrobilam ta prace.
It's still winter and colours here, and cold colours should they be- exactly as in 7 Dots Studio challenge.


Z mediami tak wlasnie jest, ze czasami cos nie wyjdzie tak jak sobie wyobrazamy. Ten arkusz Wonderland , padl kiedys ofiara nieudanych operacji mediowych i lezal w kacie, czekajac na lepszy los. Ratunkiem okazalo sie podarcie go na podluzne paski, usuniecie nieudanych fragmentow i naklejenie go na maly blejtram. Wprowadzilam dodatkowo troche koloru, laczac go z resztkami AIE, a niektore paski obcielam wykrojnikiem brzegowym TH ze sniezynkami.
Troche gesso na krawedziach, maskowanie, stickles i plamki glimmer mistow - tlo gotowe!

Now and then the mixed media play could go all wrong, at least in your eyes...well-despair no more:) you can still save your  paper, like I did here-by removing the worst bits, tearing into stripes and adhering to a smaller canvas. You can add other paper or cut some pieces with a edge die.
Some gesso on the edges, some glimmer mist and stickles - your refurbished background is ready!

Jestem pewna, ze ta technike znow wykorzystam, bo to tez swietny sposob na utylizacje resztek z ukochanych papierow, ktore zawsze szkoda wyrzucic :)

Trybiki wyciete sa z tektury wykrojnikiem Xcut - moj najnowszy nabytek, ktorym sie zachwycam:P. Pokrylam je distress stainem Weathered wood oraz Pewter, podsuszylam i ostemplowalam gesso (stempel ze wzorem spekanej farby).
Ramka otrzymala warstwe bialej farby z dabbera oraz UTEE- jednokrotna warstwa i jedno szuszenie nagrzewnica stworzylo bardzo fajny efekt malych kropelek zamiast jednolitej szklistej powierzchni.

The cogs are cut out with a Xcut die - my recent purchase, a very lucky one! To give it some colour I used distress stain in Weather wood and Pewter, and some gesso stamping.
The frame got a thin layer of white dabber and a single layer of UTEE. After one dry, I got an effect of small drops instead of one solid coat.

Biorac pod uwage roznorodnosc uzytych mediow, jest to z pewnoscia jedna z bardziej mix mediowych prac jakie kiedykolwiek zrobilam:)))
This must be one of my most mixed media project:))) I've used quite a few different media here - mod podge as an adhesive, gesso, white paint dabber, glimmer mists, glimmer stains, versafine ink, stickles,embossing ink and UTEE :).

LGS#42 and DT Call

Hello Friends!
If you are participating in the Birthday CSI Blog Hop, then please hurry to the next post and leave a comment there ;) You still have time until midnight, Tuesday Jan 29th EST (GMT-5)

Today I'm bringing you some news from Let's Get Shabby.
In your heart and soul-are you a 'shabby girl'? If so, then you might be interested to take part in our DT call!!! It doesn't happen often, so don't miss that chance :)
All details you'll find under this link , along with our current challenge, which is a sketch - approached in quite a different manner than you normally see the sketches.
Hope it will inspire your creativity! There is a beautiful shabby prize for the winner too :))) So make sure you check it out!

Here is my take on this sketch- I turned it around and used a half of it, or rather a bigger part of it , on this card.

Thanks for looking and hope to see you playing with LGS :*

CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration turned one this month, and we've been celebrating with fun and festivities all month long. But what's a birthday party without presents?
We are rounding out CSI's birthday celebration with a huge pile of presents! The talented and very generous CSI design team, aka the CSI Detectives, have prepared special blog posts for you this week, and all you have to do is leave a comment on participating design team members' blogs for a chance to receive a present from them! The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you'll have to receive a gift!
We also have the brand-new company Blue Fern Studios joining our blog hop! Our very own Detective Michele Singh is the designer of this company's beautiful chipboard, and we are delighted to have Blue Fern Studios join us to celebrate our birthday on the month they were introduced to the world!
The CSI Birthday Presents Blog Hop will run from January 25 - 29. Winners will be announced in our Full Disclosure (Announcements) Forum the following week. A newsletter will go out to members once this announcement is posted.
Here is a list of the blogs you will want to visit:
Zanka (Zaneta Glowa) you are here :)
And here are the Case File and Coordinates images:

Here is how I solved this case -I went for a feminine theme, a bit artsy, restless, featuring my friend C. who celebrated her B-day recently. I made this canvas as a present for her - I think it reflects her nature very well:)
Evidence:string , dangles something, something translucent
Testimony:tag with string ( with my wishes on it)
Some tips about the techniques:
-to achieve this worn out effect on the paper edge, I slightly moisten it with water and form carefully with fingers. Then I dry it with the embossing tool to keep the desired distressed look.
-for this kind of random stamping, I use the staps without the acrylic block. You just need to trust your hand or do it quickly so you don't get a blurred, duplicate image ;)
Paper elements are from 7 Dots Studio.
Now onto the sweet part:)
If you like vintage and make your own embellishments, I picked some stuff from my treasure box to share with you. The laces and doilies are vintage items mainly from the flea markets- you might not be able to find them elsewhere :)
There are some stamps great for background stamping and few pieces of wood veneer which I used in my case #53. If you have some heavy duty dies like Sizzix TH , you can easily cut some own patterns.
To win my RAK, you just need to leave a comment under this post.
I will be happy if you become a follower of my blog, but it's not required. But you need to be or become a CSI member because we will announce the winners there and we will contact the winners via the message function there:)
Happy Hopping and crafting :))) If you want to go again, Adrienne Ford is your first stop. Good luck!

Grandma-Beautiful Memories with Inkido

Hello Friends!
A big day for me today! I'm so happy to share with you my first project made as a DT for Inkido. I got a chance to work with the newest beautiful, romantic Beautiful Memories line. It took me a while to pick which papers to start with- all of them are so pretty and inpiring a million ideas :)
My project is a photo frame in a delicate shabby style

A close up:

 used a plain wooden frame to as a base for my project. The frame got a layer of the gorgeous Butterflies Border paper. Inside - a bit of layering in pinks : Pink Butterflies and Pink Memories, along with some lace and cut outs.
I'm definitely saving all the pieces of paper where the name of the collection is written - they work beautifully as a little sentiment in a card or LO.

Here are the products I used in my project:

Inkido has a great variety of scrapbooking products - florals, washi tape, papers and many others! Let me just share with you some beauties :)

Of course there are stamps too...I thought they deserve a show of their own:)

I hope I have inpired you to embellish your wooden frames and get creative with Inkido Products.
And by the way..have you checked yet our black&white photo challenge?

Wishing you a creative time!
Zaneta (Zanka)

New beginning

Ufff! Zdazylam!!! Niemalze za piec dwunasta ;)
W tym miesiacu wszystkie terminy wypadaja 24 lub 25 stycznia...
Trudna mapka, tym bardziej mobilizowala mnie do dzialania :)
Moj scrap wg mapki January OUAS
Temat to 'The start of something new' , mnie od razu skojarzyl sie z poczatkiem roku 2009, ktory tez okazal sie poczatkiem wielkiej Zmiany w naszym zyciu! O tym wlasnie jest moj journaling, wsuniety na bileciku pod jedno ze zdjec.

I've made it!!! Almost in a last minute (again) . I swear in January, all deadlines are on the 24th or 25th.
Here's my take on the January OUAS sketch. A difficult one, I thought -thus I was even more determined to make it. I'm a real scrap fighter :) must be reading all those wise quotes, sentiments on stamps and so. Never, never, never give up ! ;)))
Jokes aside, the theme is 'The start of something new' and for me an ideal scene for beginning of 2009 which turned out to be also a beginning of a big Change in our lives. That's my journaling about, on a ticket tucked under the photo.

Na koniec jeszcze sie pochwale, ze zmobilizowalam sie do zrobienia porzadku z galeria flickr, uzupelniajac wszystkie zalegle prace!
Pozdrawiam i do zobaczenia  wkrotce- jutro moj premierowy wystep z Inkidoo!

I've been a good girl and finally managed to get my flickr up to date!
Wishing you a great day/evening depends where you are- and hope to see you soon! Tomorrow's my first post for Inkido! Stay tuned;)

Book lover - January BAP

Witam wszystkich!
Hello everyone!

Dzisiaj bedzie szybko, bo o czym tu duzo mowic - Prima, Prima i moja Mama :) Ostatnio inspiruja mnie bardzo mapki z duza iloscia tzw white space, wiec sprobowalam swoich sil ze styczniowa mapka Prima BAP.

A short one today, there's not much to talk about - it's Prima, Prima and my Mom :) Recently I feel really inspired by sketches with lots of white space, so January BAP Prima caught my eye straight away. Not that I mastered this white space yet, as you will see...  I tend to fill it in;)

Here's the sketch

Nie pytajcie jak, ale 2 prostokaty skojarzyly mi sie z otwarta ksiazka, totez zrobilam ta mala ksiazeczke z papierow Prima, tektury i plotna,  i na niej zbudowalam niejako cala prace. Jesli cos odziedziczylam po mojej mamie to jest to z pewnoscia milosc do ksiazek:)

Do zobaczenia wkrotce :*

Don't ask me why, but the rectangles reminded me of an open book- so I made this little book out of Prima's paper, cardboard and sticky canvas, and I've build my story around it. Mom is a true book lover, something I have definitely inherited in my genes ;)

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you more this weekend!

Love that smile...

Hej hej :)
W ten weekend spedzilam dobrych kilka godzin w mojej scrapkowej pieczarze-niestety nie tylko na scrapowaniu ale rowniez na porzadkach...ale troche scrapowania tez bylo:)
Nowinki z 7 Dots Studio oraz goraczkowe oczekiwanie na premiere The Queens Heart  zachecilo mnie do siegniecia po wczesniejsze kolekcje Anai czyli Hopefully i All I ever...

This weekend I've spend quite a few hours in my scrapbooking cave ;) Scrapbooking and cleaning in turns...The sneak peaks from 7 Dots Studio and a feverish expectation of The Queens Heart premiere inspired me to pick up the earlier collections, Hopefully and All I ever..., designed by Anai .

Papiery, tekturki, tagi oraz naklejki - 7 Dots Studio. Kwiaty i serwetki - z moich bogatych zbiorow.
Papier zostal poddany balaganiarskim zabiegom z gesso ale nie ucierpial:)
Jedna z tekturek (love) wykorzystalam juz wczesniej do innej pracy, wiec tym razem uzylam pozostalej po napisie tektury jako maski i wypelnilam ja pasta strukturalna:) To nie jest moj autorski pomysl, jestem pewna ze spotkalam sie z nim na blogu jakiejs genialnej scraperki:))) ale zupelnie nie moge sobie przypomniec gdzie i u kogo...przepraszam za to...

Papers, chipboards and stickers-7 Dots Studio. Flowers and doilies - my treasure box.
Background paper got a slight brushing of gesso, but survived just fine:)
'Love' was originally in a chipboard set from 'All I ever..' I used the text earlier but I still had a remaining part left, which I used as a mask and filled it in with structure paste:) Smart, huh? :D
Must mention that it's not my idea from the start, I'm sure I've seen it at some genius blog somewhere, but I can't recall sorry for that...

LO jest inspirowane szkicem #51 na blogu Keeping the Best..
LO is inspired by the sketch #51 at Keeping the Best.. Just imagine it turned upside down and a victim of a person who can't stop adding stuff;)

I've spotted this beauty on Elena's blog, in her stunning page which litterally got me on my knees...

Zmykam bo robi sie nieprzyzwoicie pozno... ale moja nowina niespodzianka zbliza sie wielkimi krokami :D Zajrzyjcie do mnie prosze w przyszlym tygodniu!

Need to go now, my beauty sleep is calling ;) But my surprise news is almost ready to be shared:D Come by next week, ciao !

CSI 54 Santa

Melduje sie ponownie, tym razem jako detektyw CSI:)
Rozwiazalam sprawe CSI #54 w sposob swiateczny. Na zdjeciu juz pewnie Wam znajoma osobka, jako pomocnica Mikolaja.

Me again, this time as a CSI detective, who solved the case file # 54. The photo features a familiar little face,a little Santa assistant. This year Santa was a big thing for her, I can tell you:)

Materialowo to mariaz roznosci-papier Prima, kwiaty wyciete z Domestic Goddess /7DS oraz rozne resztki.
Supplies are a real mix of among others Prima paper, Domestic Goddess /7DS (fussy cut flowers) and some leftovers from other collections.
A little curiosity is a washi tape-I bet you wouldn't guess - by IKEA! So far only sold in 2 stores but soon in IKEA range all over the world. Look for the Papershop :)

Prawie zapomnialabym - oto case file #54

My evidence:tickets, swirls,polka dots, text pattern, music pattern. string
My testimony-handwritten journaling

Na koniec jeszcze przypominam o urodzinach CSI i zblizajacych sie atrakcjach w postaci blog-hop! Do zobaczenia :)

To end with, a friendly reminder of the CSI Birthday Blog Hop. Believe me, you don't wanna miss that one:) Hope to see you around!

Nowosci z 7Dots

CSI # 53 Happy together

Witajcie moi Drodzy!
2013 zaczyna sie na moim blogu zimowo :)  Ja wraz z corcia goraco Was pozdrawiamy z dziedzinca Wawelskiego zamku!

Hello my Friends!
In 2013 my blog welcomes you with the winter, chilly project:) From me and my DD - with love, from a courtyard of the Wawel castle in Krakow:)

Dokonalam tu rzadkiego jak dla mnie wyczynu - zrobilam LO niemalze minimalistyczne i to bez kwiatkow:))) Tak rozwiazalam case file # 53 na blogu CSI

I did a rare thing for me- almost minimalistic LO with no flowers! lol
This is how I solved the case # 53 at the CSI

The clues I used to solve this case:
evidence: metal , texture paste,fabric (pink lace under the frame)
testimony: I really tried to go for haiku, but this was too much of a challenge :) Instead I used the inspiration words. The journaling is written on the yellow tag hidden behind the frame, describing what I feel when I'm holding my daughter :)

Na zakonczenie jeszcze dobre wiadomosci - moj LO z Mama jako zimowa ksiezniczka zostal wyrozniony na blogu OUAS Niesamowicie sie ciesze!!!
Jest tez jeszcze jedna niesamowita wiadomosc, na razie jeszcze ciiiiiii ale juz niedlugo.... :)))

Ending with some good news - my LO, featuring my Mom as a Winter princess made it to the 5 Top featured works at OUAS I'm jumping with joy!!!
I have more big news too, but it's still a secret, so shhhhh ... but please stayed tuned :)))
