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.

Hi everyone! I am back to share a quick layout with you all today featuring a pic of my fabulous husband Joel.

To create this layout, I have used various Heidi Swapp papers from both the Sugar Chic collection and the No Limits Collection. I just adore Heidi’s ranges and I was so happy to be able to use some of the super girly range Sugar Chic in a more masculine way.

out for publication - Page 001

Now I never pretend to be very good at male themed layouts but I think I have done my hubby justice here with lots of manly features alongside bright colours and a ray of sunshine feel. To decorate the background, I have used the Harlequin Crafters Workshop Stencil with a mixture Teal Bombay India Ink and some Texture Paste. I also used the negative from 2 A2Z Scraplets cogs packs to add some cog shapes around the border and before they had a chance to dry, I have quickly sprinkled some Silver Micro Beads to add some metallic effect to the cogs. I still wasn’t 100% happy with the cogs so I have gone and coloured some A2Z Scraplets Cog Chipboard pieces using some Dylusions Ink Sprays and Perfect Pearls Mists. Gotta add some sparkle in there hehehe.

I wanted to add this fabulous A2Z Scraplets Starburst to the layout as well and decided I would layer it with lots of fun papers. I simply sprayed it with some Yellow Perfect Pearls Mist and allowed to dry before I stuck everything down and slotted the starburst in between layers.

Lots of final touches included some Heidi Swapp Buzz Words, Charms Creations Super Star along with some doodling and journalling. I also decided to add some washi tape and Heidi Swapp Phrase Stickers as well. Doesn’t it look fab? How awesome are Heidi’s product? She is definately an idol of mine. 🙂
