Cést Magnifique October Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! I  hope you are all well. Today I am back to reveal the full layout that I shared last week over on the Flourish with a Bling Blog. This layout was created also using the Cést Magnifique Kits October Sketch Challenge along with the October kit from Cést Magnifique. I just love their kits and they are so fun to receive every month even though I sometimes get impatient waiting for the mail to arrive from the US. LOL it never takes more than 2 weeks but it always seems like years when i know there is pretty stuff on the way. Click here to visit the C’est Magnifique Blog and see the challenge details.

The only extras that I have added to this kit for this project are the white lace, Black Crackle Paint, Flourish with a Bling Swirls, A2Z Scraplets Chipboard flower stem and cogs and the Black Satin Seam Binding. Everything else including the fun Christy Tomlinson Mask was in the kit and the addons and they are so fun I think this new doily stencil is my new favourite what do you think?

Some of the papers strips have been misted with some Dylusions Ink Sprays to add more pops of colour into the 7 Dots Studio papers and the fabulous A2Z Scraplets cogs were sprayed with some Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine while the A2Z Scraplets Flower was hand painted using a tiny paint brush and various shades of Ranger Liquid Pearls. I am seriously loving playing with my liquid pearls they just never get boring!

The background masking was created by rubbing some fabulous Blue Ink Gold over the doily mask randomly on the edges around the page. I am just loving this super shiny waxy shimmer effect. Love love love.

My background was also splattered with lots of fabulous Dylusions sprays to tie in the crazy amount of colour that I wanted to add to this layout in flowers etc and I just love how much colour there is colour is definately my friend lately i cannot get enough of it.

I have also added some doodling around some of the details of the background masked doilies. The Inka Gold is actually a wax based medium so obviously pen markers are not their best friends so I had to be careful to doodle around the Inka Gold and not over it otherwise I would have just ruined my favourite Project Life pens.

Pure Love – July A2Z Scraplets New Release Chipboard – Clock with Clogs

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

Hi everyone! Today I am here to start sharing my creations for the fabulous A2Z Scraplets July Releases. Now you can see the first lot of releases on the A2Z Scraplets blog here but full details of other product inclusions will be on my blog in the coming days, one project at a time.

First up is a fabulous canvas that I have created using the new A2Z Scraplets Clocks with Cogs. This canvas was 100% inspired by the infamous Finnabair. Not sure who Finnabair is? Where have you been? LOL you can check out her blog here. She is one of my fave idols in this industry.

tn_IMG_3330

To create this canvas, I have first adhered tonnes of fun embellishments including the chipboard clock with cogs to the canvas using Gel Medium. I have applied thicker layer of the Gel Medium in some sections and then scraped away with this fabulous little artsy tool that I have which I don’t know the name but a plastic fork would do the trick also LOL.

tn_IMG_3331

I wanted to add more texture to the clock with cogs before I began to pain the canvas so I have painted a thick layer of Tim Holtz Ranger Crackle Paint over the clock and allowed to dry. I have then painted the entire canvas with Black Gesso including painting some of the elements like buttons etc that were too pale for the palette that I chose.

tn_IMG_3332

I have then adhered my photo which was fussy cut out, then have covered the photo as best as I could with some baby wipes ready to start spraying!

tn_IMG_3333

I have used 3 different shades of Heidi Swapp Color Shine to spray the entire canvas. To avoid muddy colours, I have dried each colour layer in between. When I had achieved the colours that I was happy with, I have then used Inka Gold from Viva Decor in Gold, to rub all over the raised surfaces to show up the dimension better.

tn_IMG_3334

I was pretty stoked with how this canvas turned out although I am far from being anywhere near as good as Finn.

Other Products used to complete this project include…
Matisse Gel Medium
Matisse Black Gesso
Tim Holtz Ideaology various
Handmade Halo Charms
Prima Marketing Flowers Various
Prima Marketing Metal Flowers
Prima Marketing Branch
Punchinella
Handmade Halo Resin
Helmar Scrap Dots
