I love London {by Terhi}

 Hi there, how are you! It’s Terhi here with you today with one of London-scrapbook layouts. Me and my husband visited in London for four days last September. I took over 900 pictures during those four days – there was so much to see. And now I have the rest of my life to edit and scrapbook those pics. Hopefully you don’t mind seeing more London pics in future, and if you are curious to see more right now you can find some from my personal blog (link).

I started to build my page with a stencil and PanPastels. There’s some stamping and lots of paper layers and thread. Lately I’ve done a lot of doodling – as in this layout, I draw paper lines with a pencil. It gives nice depth to a page, extra interest.

Scrapbook layout tutorial with video {by Terhi}

 Hello ladies (and gentlemen!)! It’s Terhi here and i have another process video to show you. I played with Hero Arts Daubers and stamps, so I thought to share my tips and tricks for you. I really hope’ll enjoy my video, and if you do then please head over to subscribe my YouTube channel, too!

In Finland, we have this science center called Heureka, it’s big and futuristic building filled with scientific things and tests you try out by yourself. Our daughters loves it! For example, there are chairs and a table in a size that are as big for adults that normal ones are for child. So you can imagine how fun it is to climb up there! Also, there is this super size camera, its screen is like 50″ wide and you can take selfies with it – just as the one on my layout. I love to scrap this kind of memories, Heureka was one of my favorite Finnish sights when I was a child, so it’s even more fun to now that my kids loves it too!

Life in 60’s – scrapbook layout by Taru

Hi everyone.

Here is Taru today! I made a layout using lots of Hero Arts goodies and I used a photo which breathes the spirit of 60´s, I tried to move that spirit into my layout. In the picture you can see my parents. 

Nov29Taru

I chose a big flower stencil and spread brown ink through it to the background. Then I drew lines of the stencil with pencil. And of course some random doodling. I stamped some circle shapes with Charcoal ink. I tried to make a circular and irregular stamping to the paper. Then I stamped a lot of Love-stamp. I added some splashes with sprays. I also made lots of layers with pattern papers behind of photo. Some papers are attached with glue and some with 3D stickers. I stamped more shapes, wrote my journaling (really, really short journaling) and did the title with stickers.

Did you know you can use stamps to make embellishments? On this layout I stamped and cut out that pen and the ink bottle. Somehow those two fits perfectly to this layout! I finished the layout with few sequins.

Life is a game… {art journal spread by Terhi}

Hello all! It’s Terhi here today with another creation with the Hero Arts Night Flower Stencil. As I said here last time, this is my most favorite stencil ever and I can’t resist it – I’m always looking to find new projects and ways to use it. Talking about new projects, here is an art journal spread I made with the stencil. Title/journaling is from Avicii’s song (that’s another passion for me, I listen to music while creating something), that message might sound like a cliche but it’s kind of true, right?

IMG_1660I started to create this page by spreading gesso to a paper. Then some paper slices to add layers and interest. After all gesso and all the layers were completely dry, I made a mix of white gesso and pink spray mist, and I also added some tiny pearls to it. I have to admit, it wasn’t the easiest mix to add through a stencil but I made it and this is how it looks. Pretty cool!

IMG_1661After those big flowers were dry, I colored the whole page with spray mists: Hero Arts Passion Flowers Spray Mist, Hero Arts Pool Spray Mist and Hero Arts Green Hill Spray Mist.

IMG_1663Then I added alphas to their places and stamped some squares every here and there. I really enjoy to try new mediums, new colors and new textures – art journal pages are perfect to test things. You can never go wrong with art journals 🙂

Now, head on to A2Z Scrapbooking store and get yourself some mists and stencil to try my technique. Remember to use my code “TERHI15” to get 15% off your total orderof $25 or more.

Summer layout with Taru

 Hello all it’s Taru here with my first post for the  a2z Scrapbooking blog. I’m so excited!

I made a scrapbook layout with a stamped background. This is how it looked when I started to build my page.

Nov14Taru3

And this is how it turned to be. Quite nice, isn’t it!

Nov14Taru

The background is made with three different stamps, I took tones and shades from my picture. Then some black stamping too, to get more contrast onto my page.

This layout tells a story about my hair last summer – my hairdresser really did her best to make my hair look so finished and detailed.

It’s an awesome day! + VIDEO

Hey there it’s Terhi here today and I have a video for you. There are few tips on how to use stamps on scrapbook layouts. It doesn’t always have to be about background stamps – like on this layout, I used encouragement stamps as a title. It was fun and it gives a nice look to your scrapbook layout – personal but clean!

Terhi1

I also used some Christmas stamps to create interest to my background. Works perfectly, right?

Love {canvas by Terhi}

Hello all! It’s Terhi here and you will see something totally different today! I have a canvas for you! Yes, a canvas, made with Hero Arts goodies – all available on our store. Remember to use my special discount code “TERHI15”.
You probably think Hero Arts is only stamps, but it isn’t, it’s so much more. This is a perfect way to show you how much more can be done with Hero Arts products than cards. This is mixed media, this is my canvas!

terhi1

I started to build this with modelling paste and stencils. First, Hero Arts Rain Dance Stencil. Then, Hero Arts Night Flower Stencil. Once the canvas was completely dry, I colored it with spray mists. Then I placed my picture and altered the chipboard with Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

Autumnal scrapbook layout by Terhi {+VIDEO}

Hello all!

I’m happy to see you here! Today I’m showing you my autumn layout. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, because here in Finland everything is so colorful. Trees look like rainbows, although they are in wrong colors. And as the evenings are getting darker and darker (over 12 hours pitch black sky – and it’s getting even longer!), it’s so nice to sit down, have some hot chocolate and start to scrapbook all those lovely pics with awesome colors.
So, without further stories, here is my layout.
TERHI 1

Can you see what I told you about colors? Hero Arts NEON Yellow Dauber was perfect for this layout! And if you are wondering what that title means in English, it’s Wonders and Miracles”.

And here is the video, as promised.

My 2 Girls – scrapbook layout + video {Terhi}

Hello! It’s Terhi here again with a layout did with Hero Arts products!

Sometimes pictures and videos tells us so much more than words, as this time too! That’s why I have a video for you, so you can see my creations process from start to finish. Hope you like it! All my techniques are easy to do, and for example: You can replace the PanPastels I used on the video with regular inks or even with good old watercolors to get the same result.
