I’ve always dreamed of going to Venice. I’ve seen people riding gondolas in the canals in movies and photos, and never thought I’d be lucky enough to visit this beautiful place.
Venice is made up of 120 small islands, and there are around 400 bridges going over the canals! The buildings are exceptionally beautiful, and the little restaurants and cafes on the water have such a lovely charm. Venice is just as beautiful as the photos. Its one of those places where you have to control yourself or else you’ll just take photos of everything.
A water taxi or gondola is a must. You can’t go to Venice and not go on the water! We also explored quite a bit on foot, then crossed the Rialto Bridge and explored the other side. Its such a beautiful place. It definitely stole a chunk of my heart too! I dream of going back some day.
Hey there! Lately scrap-booking and card-making have been my form of escapism.
It requires you to think creatively and use what you have to create something that matches
the theme of your photo or the personality of the person you are making a card for. Here are some ideas on card-making,
along with some of my favourite techniques, methods and supplies…
I use a variety of supplies when creating my cards. Some of them include stamps, watercolours, papers, pens, and stickers.
Another one of my favourite techniques is stamping. It’s easy, fun and if done properly can, it can look beautiful!
Use mixed media! Don't think because you've used a matte paper that you can't use a glossy one! Or because you've used stamping you can't use stickers! Mixing and matching is key in creating an attractive card!
Use tags on smaller gifts instead of using a card. I made this one using a piece of
cardstock, washi tape and stamping.
Use watercolours! Using paint on cards can often be daunting, but the end result
can look highly professional.
And last of all, some colour inspiration! Never be afraid to use colour!
Use all those tips and tricks and voila!
I hope these tips were helpful! Be sure to try some card-making yourself!
