Mother's day week - Gio

Here's a lovely scrapbooking page by Gio. We have not have one of those for a while. 
How many scrapbookers are reading this blog? Let us know in a comment below... what do you do most? Scrapbooking? Card making? Art Journaling? Altering? 
I would love to know...
Here's how Gio made her page... 

I gessoed some book pages using Claudine Hellmuth Studio - Gesso. 
I stamped and cut some poppies using Woodware clear stamp: Poppy and Jet Black Archival ink. I coloured them lightly using several Distress inks and the Zig BrusH2O Waterbrush: Detailer.
I decorated the Bazzill monochromatic using gesso, PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Snowflake and a little foam to spread the paint through the The Crafters Workshop template - Mixed-up alpha stencil. 
I coloured the Tando Creative: Alphas Sheet chipboards to make the title with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Snowflake and Lilac.

Woodware clear stamp: Poppy
Archival ink: Jet Black
The Crafters Workshop template - Mixed-up alpha
Zig BrusH2O Waterbrush: Detailer
Rocaille beads mix: Pales greens
Claudine Hellmuth Studio - Gesso
Kanban acrylic stamps: Birds of paradise-peacock

See you tomorrow


  1. Great page!! I have never scrap booked, and whilst I started as a card maker these days I largely do art journalling (without the bearing of my soul!!) and altering...

  2. A wonderful page and a real inspiration.

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. This is not my favorite one from Gio, but I love the beads on it and its creativity !!
    To answer your question, for me I started as a scrapbooker then I became a card maker and now love doing Art Journaling (thanks to you first Izzy) and Altering a little bit (thanks to Gio first also !!) LOL ! Coco xx

  4. This is really pretty and I may have to borrow elements from this please!
    Me, I am an all rounder, scrapbooking (post today in fact), cards, altered, not art journalling much - not enough time!

  5. Oh, love those flowers! I do all those things mentioned...in one form or another. Love the variety your bring to this blog.

  6. Lovely page really like the flowers. I do scrapbooking both digital and hybrid, card making, just getting into altered art and journalling, need more practice, but trying to MAKE time for more crafting of all sorts. Sioux P
