Hello! 
I have a layout that I have created using a photo of my daughter and her friend,  with their flower crowns on, that I want to share with you.

I have created this for 2Crafty Chipboard.
'Gorgeous'

2Crafty Chipboard Products used:


I have started by giving my page a bit of a mixed media background. I have also done a bit of fussy cutting of my papers. I have used 49 & Market's 'Bold & Beautiful' collection.

I layered some of my papers and fussy cut elements.  I have then added a couple of the 'Leafy Shrub Set 2', that I have heat embossed in white. 

I have layered one of each side of my photo, among my papers and 'Wildflowers', also from 49 & Market.

I have also used one of the 'Element Set 1', again heat embossed in white. I have cut it in half and layered one to the left side and one to the top of my page.

On the right side, I have used the smallest clock from the '6 inch Clock Face Frames', again finished in whit…

Hello all! 
This month over at Scrap Matrix we have a fabulous new challenge for you.
Mandalas!


This is my art journal page based on the challenge. 

I have started with a page in my 'Dylusions Creative Journal - Large'. I have then given a coat of 'Liquitex White Gesso', to seal my page. 
I have then used the gorgeous 'Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints' in 'Turquoise' to coat my page. 

I have then used my 'TCW 6x6 Stencil - Skylight' and 'Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint' in 'Prawn'.



I have then applied a mix of 'Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints' in 'Prawn' and 'Pumpkin Soup', that I have blended with my 'Ranger Inkblending Tool'.

I have then used torn strips of pieces from the 'Art by Marlene Collage Papers #3', that I have adhered to my page.



I have sponged and blended some 'Liquitex White Gesso', over my page, to lighten the bright colours a bit.

'Let it Snow'
Kaisercraft

Hello all! I'm back today to share my latest creation for Kaisercraft using the oh so gorgeous 'Let It Snow' collection.

I have fallen in love with this gorgeous Christmas collection.  Full of stunning colours and textures!
I have started with a mixed media background, using the Scattered Stars Template,  and some of the Clear Stamps. 
I have used the Xmas trees stamped with the Clear Stamp Set, combined with more trees from the Collectables,  to create a forest around my photo.

I have also used some of the gorgeous snowflakes,  that I have layered up with foam tape for dimension.
I have also used quite a few of the awesome stickers from the Sticker Book.  Add in some gauze for that extra bit of texture. 

 I have used a couple of sentiments from the Collectables. 
And of course that beautiful Curio!!
Don't forget you can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.
I hope you like what I have created.
Until next time!

Hello all! 
I'm here today to share my latest creation with you all.  I have an Art Journal Page that I have created,  using some of my favourite  2Crafty Chipboard.
'Start Somewhere'

2Crafty Products used:


 For this page, I have started with a mixed media background,  using modelling paste, stencils, mists and inks.

I have then started to build up my page. I have used some of the 'Mini Checkerboard Bits' in among my elements. 


I have inked all my background chippies with black ink,  for contrast against the bright background.

I have also used some of the 'Squiggly Strips Set 1',  which I have cut into pieces and used on my page. 

I have also used some of the 'ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars', scattered over my page. 

I have also used one of the 'Mini Family Icons',  which I have left raw, as the focal piece of my page. 

I love the contrast of the black and the bright bold background. I'm really happy with this page, I hope that you like it…

Magenta Collection

Hello!! Fancy seeing you here! I am just popping in to share my latest creation for Kaisercraft  using the stunning 'Magenta' Collection.
Full of gorgeous florals and oh so much pink!! I have used the 'Line Art Template' to stencil on my background. I have also used the 'Woven Line Texture Stamp'. And finally some splashes of colour using my Kaiser Mists.

I am loving these gorgeous black and white flowers and leaves. I have used embroidery thread to sew centres to the flowers  and segments of the leaves.

I have built up my photo matt using some of the gorgeous patterned papers, and elements from the Sticker Book & Collectables.

Some fussy cutting of the florals and leaves, to add to my layers.

I really love the bold pinks on that grey background.

I hope that you like what I have created with this gorgeous collection. You can find the full instructions for this layout  HERE.
Until next time!!
