Preschool Pic 2013 Berry71Bleu September Challenge

Howdy everybody. I am back today to share a fabulous layout with you all that I have recently created for the Berry71Bleu September Sketch Challenge. The extra requirement for this month’s challenge is to use Mixed Media and you can view the challenge details here on the Berry71Bleu Challenge Blog...

This layout I have created using one of the awesome kits available from A2Z Scraplets which you can find here.

tn_IMG_3900

To create my background, I have covered my white cardstock with random shaped and sized paper doilies. I wanted to add lots of subtle texture to the background and I have covered them completely in Mod Podge Matte.

tn_IMG_3901

Next I have sprayed some various Lindy Stamp Gang sprays using a Prima Marketing Static Mask. I only sprayed very small sections randomly in 3 different colours. I have then swiped an embossing ink pad over the entire background gently so I grabbed some of the texture and not just covered the lot and then I have sprinkled some Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing Powder over the top and heat set.

tn_IMG_3902

The papers that I have used are from the Firefly Collection from Prima Marketing and the flowers are a combination of Flourish with a Bling, Green Tara, Kaisercraft & Prima Marketing. When layering my distressed patterned papers, I have included some ripped and torn cheescloth in between.

tn_IMG_3903

I have finished off the layout using some of the torn pieces of cheesecloth placed over my flower clusters and then added some random sequins to match the drips on the sketch.

Here is the sketch from Berry71Bleu this month. Don’t forget to head on over and have a go there are awesome prizes up for grabs always.

158

Amy Prior #158

Of course some closeups…

IMG_3857

The background has been lightly sprayed with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine Spray over the A2Z Scraplets Broken Gate 12×12 Mask. Very subtly. I have then cut and distressed all my patterned paper pieces and mounted them onto Brown Cardstock and distressed.

IMG_3858

To decorate the A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Clock with Cogs, I have painted it with Brown Crackle Paint, allowd to dry, then sprayed with various Brown Shimmery Sprays and dried with my heat gun making sure lots of puddles of brown formed to create a more aged look.

IMG_3859

When the layout was complete, I decided to add some pearls and drops around the page randomly. I have also painted the edges of all the flower petals and the Sweet title with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine.

One Heart, One Love, One Destiny – New A2Z Scraplets July Release Chipboard

Are you here for my June/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course :)

Hi everyone! I am back today to share another fabulous new release chipboard from the awesome July A2Z Scraplets release. Check out the first release blog post here. I will be sharing my projects here on my blog also 1 at a time so keep checking back for the rest of my creations including how tos.

The layout I have to share today is titled One Heart, One Loev, One Destiny and is using the fabulous new A2Z Scraplets title “One Love One Heart One Destiny”. I have cut up the title to spread around my page and I have used the always fabulous, Maja Design papers for this layout and to create the background, I have added some texture paste over a Heidi Swapp Stencil and then done some random stamping using a Stampin Up Background Stamp and Ranger Coffee Archival Ink.

tn_IMG_3336

I decided that I wanted to cut some pretty elements out using my Silhouette Cameo so after choosing some fabulous cut files, I have cut out a gorgeous frame and some swirls and foilage with the Maja Design Papers. I also cut some banners and layered them together with a doily and did some machine stitching.

tn_IMG_3337

The chipboard title was simply covered with a thin layer of Gesso and then stamped with the Stampin Up Background stamp that was used for the background, using some Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.

tn_IMG_3338

To finish off this fabulously shabby layout, I have added some lace from Green Tara and other random lace I had in my stash, plus a tonne of fabulous Prima Marketing Flowers alongside some yummy Ingvild Blome Shabby Resin.

tn_IMG_3339

I have added some texture paste to the ends of the flower petals to help shabby them up a little more and then I decided to add all my sewing threads to the cluster.

tn_IMG_3340

I decided at the last minute to add some blue Tim Holtz Distress Ink to my Chipboard titles to help try make them pop more and I have done this simply with a wet paintbrush straight from the Distress Ink Pad.

Thanks so much for reading along and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another new release share from A2Z Scraplets.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
