Drink Tea & Read Books

Hello all!
I have a page from my 'Park Ave Penthouse Journal' to show you that I created for 
Bad Girls Couture
This page speaks volumes about me, and it's about two things that makes me very happy :)
"Drink Tea & Read Books"

For this page I have used one of the white card stock pages from my journal.
I have then painted my page with 'Clear Gesso'.

I have then used 'Molding Paste' and a 'Newsprint' stencil from Celebr8  to give some texture to my background.

I have then added some colour to my page using my Haute Mess Acrylic Paints in
'Fallen Angel', 'Mannequin' & 'Broken Doll'.

I have recycled an old watch face, that I have used on my page.
I have also repurposed some old book pages, into doilies.
I have used 'Matte Gel Medium' to adhere my paper pieces,  from the Dear Diary collection from Mintay Papers.

I hope you like what I have created, I had a lot of fun with this page. Lisa xo

Soulmates Gift Cards
7 Dots Studio
+ VIDEO

Image
Hello all! I am here today to share my latest creation for 7 Dots Studio
I have created a couple of gift cards.

I have used the Soulmates Collection to create these cards.  I loved the soft pastel colours and I wanted to make some cards to have on hand ;)
This is an older 7 Dots Collection but definitely a still a gorgeous one. 

I have inked the edges of all my pieces for a bit of an aged look to these cards.

Loving these pinks and blues.

Lots of texture.

I have also used some chipboard pieces from my fave 2Crafty Chipboard. I have given them a white crackle finish, I have also slightly inked them. 

Lots of gorgeous flowers :)

I have used a mix of stamps from the Air Mail & Northern Lights collections,  on my background papers.

Some more pretties!

The Word Stickers are from the Air Mail collection.

There is a full process video that you can watch below



I hope you like what I have created.
Until next time

'Timeless' Layout
2Crafty Chipboard & CSI

Image
Hello all!  I have created this layout as a Guest Designer over at
CSI - Challenge Blog
that 2Crafty Chipboard is one of the generous sponsors of this month. This is my layout
'Timeless'

I had a lot of fun with this month's moodboard. I love the pink and green combination. I have used the stunning 'Beautiful Life' collection from Celebr8

I have left my chipboard all white for this layout, as I felt it worked best. I have used 3 different sizes of the  'Clock Face Discs'

I have also used a couple of the flourishes from the  'Flourish Adornment Set 4'  in among my layers.

I have also used one of the 'Fancy Clock Hand Set 2'  on the smallest clock face.

For my title I have used one of the words from the 'Fine Word Set 2' along the bottom of my photo matt.

 I have also used some Celebr8 stencils on my background, Vintage Script, Tile Pattern & 4 x 3 inch Grunge Border. There are so many different designs, I'm in love with so many of …

Island Escape - Paradise Found Kaisercraft

Image
Hello!
I'd like to share another creation with you. Using the Paradise Found Collection from Kaisercraft
'Island Escape'

There is lots of fussy cutting in this layout.  I have cut out all of the foliage, to build up the centre piece.  I have added foam tape to the back of the top layer, for dimension. 

A fairly simple photo mat using the patterned papers, stickers from the Sticker Book.

I have added a Curio, next to my sentiment. 

And finally I have used one of the sentiments from the patterned papers. 

You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.
Until next time!

Using some of the gorgeous gloss papers from the Paper Pad.

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.
Next I have  'Time to Celebrate' 

A card for any occasion, monochromatic florals and foliage from the collection.

Lots of dimension :)
For this card I have again used the Bracket Die,  but I have also used some of the cut out pieces adhered to the card.

I have also used stickers from the Sticker Book. 

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.
For my final card I have 
'Life is better with you in it'

Lots of layers and some gauze added for texture.

Hello all!
I'm here today to share my latest page in my gorgeous
'Park Ave Penthouse Journal' for 
Bad Girls Couture
'Field Journal'

I also have some tips and tricks on different ways to use Matte Gel Medium.
I love my matte gel! 
The first and main way that I use this medium is mixed with my Haute Mess Acrylic Paints.
The Matte Gel Medium adds texture to your dried acrylic paints.

It doesn't really change the consistency to your paint
but you are able to leave texture with brushes or palette knives.
When you first mix it, it may lighten your paint colour, as the gel is white,
but don't fear this is temporary as it dries clear and your colour is the same.

For this page I have started with a coat of Haute Mess Clear Gesso.


I have built up my paint layers using Matte Gel Medium mixed with  Haute Mess Acrylic Paints in natural colours.

I have also used the Molding Paste to stencil in some fern leaves.


The second way that I have used my Matte Gel Medium,
was to adhere …

Tropical Bliss - Paradise Found Kaisercraft

Image
Hello!  I'm popping in today to share my latest creation for  Kaisercraft using their Paradise Found Collection.

Perfect for some of my Hawaii photos!
'Tropical Bliss'
When I received this collection I fell in love with all the gorgeous tropical foliage. I really wanted to use this leaf on the 'Ocean Air' paper.


I have fussy cut it out and adhered foam tape to the back of each frond, and have then laid it on the page.  I did need helping hands to do this as it can be quite tricky to line up.

I have then built up a photo stack with layers of the patterned papers, fussy cut florals and some of the stickers from the NEW Sticker Books. 

I have also added in some co-ordinating paper blooms. 

To finish I have used one of the NEW Curios, on a little corner cluster. 
I hope you like what I have created.  You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.
Until next time
