The background has been given some extra texture with Gesso and a Prima Marketing Static Stencil as well as some Lindy Stamp Gang Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Stain Spray for some glimmer.

This fabulous fancy letterbox chipboard has been cut in half so I could mount around and under my photograph once it was fussy cut.

To decorate the chipboard I have used a variety of layers including Gesso, Crackle Paint, Acrylic Paint, Distress Inks, Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays and finally some Viva Decor Inka Gold.

You Sparkle You Shine

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 going in for surgery on Friday which hopefully will be just minor but it could end up being a major surgery so I might be out of it for a while. I did get a chance to play last night however and created this fabulous layout using My Minds Eye & Rhonna Farrer Designs Spread your wings and Fly Collection. Seriously can I just say that I have always loved Rhonna and her designs but man she still blows me away each and every time she releases something and My Minds Eye and Rhonna are simply a match made in heaven.

I have also used some fabulous Heidi Swapp goodies for this layout including a 12×12 stencil and 2 shades of Color Shine Mist. I have to say that Color Shine is my definate favourite mist. Yes yes I hear you all saying that I say that about everything but no joke, Heidi’s line is above and beyond all my expectations. The Colour is incredible and vibrant and the shimmer is over the top and so much more than others out there on the market I just adore them! Think Dylusions inks mixed with Perfect Pearls Mists x20! LOL

To create the background on white cardstock, I have simply sprayed the centre of the page with Pink Color Shine (over the stencil) and then I have sprayed the edges with Yellow Color Shine. I then sprayed some more pink and yellow to help blend and create an ombre effect towards each other. When this was dry I have added a few spritzes of water to my palm and flicked the water over the top to create this cool bleached effect on the color shine. This technique is so fun and easy to use with Water Based paints that are not water proof.

I have fussy cut my photo for this layout because I just thought it was such a cute pose and it was wanting to be leaned on some pretty papers. I have distressed the edges and machine sewn around the border before adding some washi tape, enamel dots, doilies and the paper layers.

tn_IMG_3423

I have then added some stickers from the My Minds Eye Spread your wings and fly collection and to help distress them up to coordinate with my layout, I have simply scratched the surface with a nail file.

Well that is it from me today, until next time, happy scrapping!

Can You Please Smile

If you are here for my giveaway, click here. Only 15 more days to enter!

Hello there! So lovely to have you all here. I hope you are all well and in good health. My poor little family has suffered from a nasty virus this week and we are slowly getting back to the land of the living. Not fun at all. Unfortunately this means I have rested and cared for my babies all week long and haven’t had a chance to scrap much. On Monday however, I did get this layout finished that I wanted to share…

To create this layout, I have used various elements from the Prima Marketing Tea Thyme Collection. I just adore this collection of whimsy pretty patterns, I mean who doesn’t? Girly girl lines are always a huge fave of mine and I especially love the flowers used on this collection.

The background paper I chose was already so perfect however I wanted to add more texture using a stencil and some machine stitching. I have simply used some Texture Paste with the Donna Downey Prima Stencil to create the most subtle effect. The edges have been distressed a lot using a nail file.

The hidden journalling outlines the story of this too cute photo and is nestled under a gorgeous Satin Seam Binding Bow. The chipboard bird is, of course, from A2Z Scraplets and has been embossed using WOW Embossing Powders in 4 different colours and then finished off with white embossing powder followed by some Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Spray. The textured effect was created by simply sponging on some Gesso to prime the chipboard before I applied any other products. Flourish with a Bling pearls finished off the flower centres just perfectly!

Well that is it from me today as I go off to finish cleaning up my house from the lovely week that was. Until next time, happy scrapping!

I also have some super exciting news to share! Eeeekkk I am over the moon thrilled to be a member of the amazing Design Team over at the Color Room! I cannot believe it because the talented ladies on the Color Room team always blow me away and so I am feeling very honoured to work alongside them. Be sure to checkout the Color Room website here and the Facebook page here to keep up to date. If you aren’t aware of the Color Room, it is a challenge site with a new and fabulous Color Palette and sketch each week to inspire. I have actually printed each palette out for as long as I can remember and kept them in a folder because they always inspire me to work with colours I would usually avoid.

Well that is it from me today, hopefully I will be back with some more inspiration over the weekend but until next time, happy scrapping!
