Cocoa Daisy August sneaks + Cybercrop this weekend + more...!

Lots of fun happening at Cocoa Daisy! This weekend we are having a crop to celebrate the new site - It'll be a smaller crop than most of our previous crops, but there'll still be challenges, games, prizes and lots of fun!

Please come and join us on Friday-Saturday, July 18-19! It's free and everyone is welcome!

I also have a sneak of the August kit - Modern + Vintage. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of my new favourite kits! Kits go on sale to subscribers, Monday, July 28th at 9 PM ET. The general public will be able to purchase kits and add ons starting August 1st at midnight ET.

Something else that I'm REALLY excited about is the news about the Day Planner kits - coming in September! I've recently discovered the slightly crazy world of filofaxes and other gorgeous planners and I'm sooo looking forward going back to using a paper planner instead of trying to survive with the calendar in my phone + too many lists on small scraps of paper that I can never find when I need them anyway... :)
Watch out for more sneaks coming up!

My June Project Art pages

The June Project Art kit from Cocoa Daisy contained some Dina Wakley acrylic paints + black gesso. I was really looking forward to trying Dina's paint and I wansn't disappointed! The colours are wonderful and  vibrant, they have a lovely consistency and they dry matte - perfect for a journal.

Here are the pages I created. The first one is messy and talks about my goal to run 5 km.

Life is crazy... :)

About my garden dreams... 

I also painted one of the cute bags that holds the Project Art kits - so much fun!

Happy, lovely moments...

The Viewfinder kit from Cocoa Daisy is now on sale - go check it out! This is a fun and fab kit that has some travel themed items, but that is totally useful also for non-travel layouts, as examplified by my layouts below... :)

This is the main kit - I really love the stitching template and the floss!

 I used the template on this layout and then covered my stitching with gesso, paint and mist.

On this layout I stitched one of the words on top of my photo. I used a white mist to add a very subtle pattern to the background.

My third layout is a bit messy and a fab example of the strategy "if you aren't happy with what you've created - add more paint!". :)
