If you are here for my giveaway, click here for more info!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well and ready for National Scrapbook Day tomorrow! Yay I am so excited and hoping to get my scrap on and join in lots of online crops happening over the weekend especially the Live with Prima and the Scrapbook.com crops.

I am over on the A2Z Scraplets Blog sharing this canvas that I have made for my mother in law for Mothers Day.

This canvas is 12×12 and to create the background, I have used a variety of masks and some Helmar Textured Effects.

I then had fun with lots of different mists including Glimmer Mist, Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays as well as Dylusions Ink Sprays. When these were dry, I have added some white gesso to shabby it up a little more. Bright and shabby is a serious favourite style of mine at the moment LOL.

The fabulous A2Z Scraplets Heart has been simply embossed with some WOW Embossing Powder. I have attached it over a beautiful cluster of Handmade Halo & Prima flowers along with some beautiful Handmade Halo Charms, Fabric Stickers and Flourish with a Bling goodies.

Behind the photo is a darling doily that I have cut using my Silhouette Cameo and some Prima Marketing Firefly Papers. I have also framed the photo with a fabulous A2Z Scraplets Nested Scallop Chipboard piece. Again I have embossed this piece using WOW Embossing Powder but I have done a very random spotty job so I would have lots of the raw chipboard shining through still. I then added some Viva Pink Glimmer Mist to that and allowed it to dry. I just adore all of the nested chipboard packs that A2Z Scraplets has to offer. They are so versatile and you get so many pieces for your money!

The title was created using the A2Z Scraplets Nanna Title Chipboard. To get this effect, I have added very small random amounts of Blue Tim Holtz Crackle Paint and allowed to dry completely. Then I have simply sprayed some White Mister Hueys Spray over the top to mute it down a little and add some more shabby.

Here are those fabulous A2Z Scraplets that I have used. Click on the images to view and purchased them on the website.

The beautiful flowers are a mixture of Prima, Kaisercraft, Green Tara & Handmade Halo. Among the Flower Cluster, I have some fabulous Prima Shabby Resin as well as some Green Tara Beaded Stems.

To create the textured background, I have first covered the entire canvas with texture paste using a Prima Stencil. I have then sprayed the background with various Mists after placing some doilies randomly. I then have removed the doilies, splattered some acrylic paint, and then masked again, this time using WOW Embossing Powders.

To finish off the backgroun, I have glooped some Embossing Ink Refill and allowed to dry overnight. When it is still tacky, I have then embossed using various WOW Embossing Powders.

I had lots of fun creating this canvas and was definately inspired by Stacey Young’s Prima Canvas Creation.

You Brighten Up My Day

Hi everyone! I am over on the A2Z Scraplets Blog here today to share some last minute inspiration for this month’s A2Z Scraplets challenge. Have you entered yet? You can view the details here.

The challenge this month was set by the fabulous Belinda and is a quote challenge. The quote to use is “You Brighten Up My Day”.

out for publication - Page 001

For my layout I have used some fabulous bright Echo Park Papers  along with some white cardstock and Dylusions Ink Splatters.

The A2Z Scraplets I have used on this layout is the fabulous Starburst 2 – Large which comes in 2 pieces. I have used this piece so many times and I still have so many more ideas to use it.

For this layout I have trimmed the starburst inner piece to create random length banner looking starbursts. To decorate I have used a sponge and very roughly added some thin White Gesso followed by 3 different shades of PanPastel Colours. I started on the edgesWhite, then the middle with Diarylide Tint, followed by Diarylide Yellow in the very centre. Each time I added a darker colour, I have swept th Sofft Sponge outwards to create the gorgeous Gradual tone. To finish it off I have sprayed some Fixative and Laquer over the top.

You can checkout the Large Starburst 2 Shape on the A2Z Scraplets website here.
