Make your own background at STB

Hi there!

This week you have the opportunity to show us a beautiful background... created by YOU!

But... we want you to have fun even if you don't feel like making a BG, so feel free to link up any newly created birthday card!

I am showing you my first attempt at... BOKEH !

I had so much fun doing this, I will definitely try it again!




I didn't want to hide my BG, so I only added a birthday greeting from HERO arts.


What will you create... I can't wait to see!


Thanks for visiting me today!

Gorgeous Bokeh background, Hannelie! The color palette is so pretty and I love how your inks blended! Such a lovely font on the sentiment, too...just perfect!

Mooi fris en ik blijf die Bokeh-techniek zo'n mooi effect geven; hier ook weer!
Ik vergeet altijd dat ik genoeg papier op voorraad heb en maak zo vaak een eigen achtergrond, dat ik wat tijd moet zoeken dit weekend om aan deze uitdaging mee te doen; blijf ik leuk vinden... Groetjes, Gerrina

I've really wanted to try a bokeh background, too. Yours is beautiful! You've inspired me to give it a go...soon. There are SO MANY techniques I want to try! And I am always so inspired by artists like you.

I love the Bokeh technique and love using it - it's so easy and so effective. This is a gorgeous example! I predict we'll see many more bokeh cards on your blog - it's quite addictive :)

First try at Bokeh? Wow! You're amazing! I really, REALLY like the colors you used - so 'refreshhing'...perfect way to celebrate a birthday!

How are you feeling?

What a yummy background, love the subtle white circles, you did right not to cover up anything!

Barb Ghig said...

WOW! Great job on your Bokeh effect, Hannelie! I found this technique a bit tricky...I love how you blended the colors and the sentiment is fabulous! Another beautiful creation!

Hi, vrou, die bokeh ding is regtig nou vreeslik in, ne, en jy het dit so goed gedoen!!!! (Ek weet nie regtig wat nou eintlik presies bokeh is nie - moet nog op die net kyk wat dit is - maar ek het ook al my hand aan my eie soort van 'n bokeh gewaag!!!) Jou groene is lieflik en die eenvoudige swart sentiment is pragtig treffend daarop!!! Perfek afgerond met die swart enamel dots!!!
Groete
