A perfect moment

This new layout, could be called a "Mixed media" layout 

I first made the background. The sheet in the centre of the layout is heavy weight watercolor paper and colored with Brusho's in purple and reds. After this was dry, I stamped the design then applied gesso around the stamping. I followed this up with stenciling using purple Nuvo paste through a stencil. When dry, this entire piece was trimmed to 12 inch x 7 inch and placed on black cardstock.
I followed up with more stenciling, this time with white texture paste. Which of course I didn't like and colored it with purple Gelato.  I also added more stamping and heat embossed that. The background was then finished.  

The chipboard was  cut then painted in pink, purple and white.

The title was also painted in purple and white, but I didnt like it. As you can see, I ended up painting the entire title in white.

From scraps from the trimmed watercolor card that I had colored, I stamped and cut images to use as elements on my page. 

I then assembled it all together along with the photo, and the page was complete!

A2Z Scraplets Oct DT

This my take on this months sketch challenge at A2Z Scraplets.
You can enter the challenge through the link HERE.

My layout was first made by preparing the background which was made by stenciling with Nuvo paste.

I then prepared my chipboard by painting first in gesso, and then applying pink gelato in two tones. The word You had glue applied then dipped in microbeads.

I then added my photo and embellishments including flowers, die cuts, flair, half pearls and bakers twine and the layout was complete!

Hi it's Anne here
with a new Friday layout made for this months challenge at Scrap the Girls.  Ive used A2Z Scraplets bubble stickssteel mesh and funny wordlets.

To make this layout the A2Z Scraplets steel mesh and bubble sticks were heat embossed.

The background to this layout was made by applying texture paste through a stencil. I also printed the page.

My embossed A2Z Scraplets were arranged on the page, together with wood vaneer pieces, fabric, lace, artstones, pearls, and a few other embellishments. I also splattered a bit of paint around too.

Lovin Summer

Hiya, I'm here with another
Friday layout to share for A2Z Scraplets.
This layout was made by first making a background of Brusho's on watercolor paper.

The A2Z Scraplet Scalloped background shape was painted in acrylic paint  & then had micro beads attached.

The A2Z Scraplet Lovin Summer word was painted in Magenta acrylic paint, glitter applied to the lower half then highlighted using a black Sharpie pen.

Flower type shapes were made using Brusho's on watercolor paper, hand drawn then cut out.

The layout was complete using a few die cut embellishments, some hand drawing and rhinestones.

All you need is Love

A new Friday layout for A2Z Scraplets.

This layout is also made for this months challenge at Off the Rails scrapbooking, which is all about food.

The A2Z Scraplet All you need is Love is engraved so needed highlighting in white to get the words to stand out.

I made this layout by first applying gelatos, then stamping in black.

Die cuts, resin diamond shapes and the photo added alongside the A2Z Scraplet completed the layout!

New layout for A2Z Scraplets. This one uses A2Z Scraplet Memories circle word and  A2Z Scraplet torn mesh shape.

I made this layout by first cutting circles in my 12 x 12 inch paper. I had to cut the paper into 3 so to fit into my die cut machine. I then sewed around each of the three pieces, stamping and embossing as shown. I then mounted the three pieces using foam.

The A2Z scraplet memories circle word and my cut pieces of torn mesh shape chipboard were heat embossed.

I placed the chipboard on my layout then mounted my photo on cardstock and fabric mesh. I then added embellishments including, flowers, beads and stickers and the layout was complete!
