Of course some closeups…

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.

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.

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.

Here is my take on this amazing palette. I was planning on using the fabulous sketch as inspiration also but alas I got carried away in my own creativity.

The background White Cardstock has been decorated using some PanPastels and Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Mists.

Next step was to add a doily and my photos. I have distressed the edges of my photos using a nail file and added a super cute Studio Calico Paper Clip, some Washi Tape, Heidi Swapp Buzz Word and an awesome Prima Shabby Resin Frame. I have added some colour to the frame using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I then went to town adding some flowers. Yes I usually go overboard but is there such thing as too many flowers? LOL I have also added some yummy Flourish with a Bling flourish pieces around the cluster and to the left, there is some lace and Heidi Swapp Banners poking out from underneath.

I then decided to add some Washi Tape, Pink Paislee Artisan Element Circl and a Prima clock to the bottom corner. The Pink Paislee Artisan Element was distressed with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Some added journalling, Prima Baubles, Studio Calico Stars & Sequins and my layout was complete. I added some colour to the Wood Veneer stars using some more Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Well that is it from me today, I am moving house today YAY so I will be quiet for a few days but don’t forget to check back next week for the announcement of my giveaway and maybe a new giveaway announcement 🙂

Now onto some closeups of course. The patterned paper of choice for this layout was a combination of Heidi Swapp and Studio Calico. The background was given more textured layers by adding some Kaisercraft Paint mixed with Texture Paste using a Crafters Workshop Stencil. When the paint was still wet, I have sprinkled some Orange Micro Beads over the top and then splattered some random spots of Perfect Pearls Mist. Next I have used some Punchinella with Distress Ink to create the circles randomly and followed by some random stamping using my Stampin Up Background Stamp and some WOW Embossing Powder.

The easiest way to create such a random embossed effect, is to stamp the entire surface using embossing adhesive, followed by pouring the powder over like normal. Before you heat set it, grab yourself a paint brush and brush away random sections of the powder including very solid blocks and lines etc. This gives a more natural feel and some of the embossing powder stuck to the micro beads which I thought was a cool effect.

The Banners and Brace Shape Chipboar pieces are of course from A2Z Scraplets. The Banner has been covered with some super cute Washi Tape that I found at my local Kmart store last week. I have then added some White Pearl Strips and sprayed with Lindys Stamp Gang Fabio Spray. The Brace shape was first covered with a red patterned paper and then some orange striped washi tape was used over the top. I didn’t have much Tangerine so figured this was a good way to create it but it just turned out Orange so I went ahead and sprayed some Orange Perfect Pearls Mist over the top anyway. Gotta add that sparkle!

Lots of other beautiful elements to this layout including Handmade Halo Mulberry Flower that I have coloured using Lindys Stamp Gang Fabio Spray, Charms Creations Page Runner, My Minds Eye Printed Chipboard Piece as well as some Studio Calico Tags.

Overall I was really happy with how this layout turned out as these colours are definately out of my comfort zone. Be sure to head on over to the Color Room website here and play along for your chance to win some fab prizes.
