All Smiles with A2Z Scraplets & Flourish with a Bling

 

 

Hi everyone! Just a quick share from me today using lots of fabulous goodies from A2Z Scraplets & Flourish with a Bling.

I have used the A2Z Scraplets Kit which can be found here and is only $40!

To decorate the background, I have used the A2Z Scraplets mask as a diamond in the centre and then in the four corners. I did not want the pattern to go to the edges but rather fade out so I have done it really roughly around the edges.

I have then sprayed some Pink Bubblegum Dylusions Spray and dripped off to create a starburst. I had to dry each drip in between slightly but it was worth it. I have then sprayed with Yellow Dylusions and outlined with a marker.

To decorate the chipboard title and butterfly, I have smeared some gesso onto my craft sheet and then stamped the chipboard pieces over to allow gradual rough amounts of the gesso to transfer over and create a cool texture. I have then sprayed with Dylusions Ink Sprays and outlined with some Black Crackle Paint roughly.

The Doily has been sprayed with Black Heidi Swapp Mist and followed by some Black Crackle Paint. I have then cut my Flourish with a Bling Flourishes to create this coold effect under my butterfly.

All the patterned paper is from Prima Firefly collection and has been distressed on the edges using Black Crackle Paint.

Well that is it from me today, come back tomorrow when I will announce the winner of my All tom Scrap (All About Scrap) RAK giveaway.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

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.

One Heart, One Love, One Destiny – New A2Z Scraplets July Release Chipboard

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 back today to share another fabulous new release chipboard from the awesome July A2Z Scraplets release. Check out the first release blog post here. I will be sharing my projects here on my blog also 1 at a time so keep checking back for the rest of my creations including how tos.

The layout I have to share today is titled One Heart, One Loev, One Destiny and is using the fabulous new A2Z Scraplets title “One Love One Heart One Destiny”. I have cut up the title to spread around my page and I have used the always fabulous, Maja Design papers for this layout and to create the background, I have added some texture paste over a Heidi Swapp Stencil and then done some random stamping using a Stampin Up Background Stamp and Ranger Coffee Archival Ink.

tn_IMG_3336

I decided that I wanted to cut some pretty elements out using my Silhouette Cameo so after choosing some fabulous cut files, I have cut out a gorgeous frame and some swirls and foilage with the Maja Design Papers. I also cut some banners and layered them together with a doily and did some machine stitching.

tn_IMG_3337

The chipboard title was simply covered with a thin layer of Gesso and then stamped with the Stampin Up Background stamp that was used for the background, using some Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.

tn_IMG_3338

To finish off this fabulously shabby layout, I have added some lace from Green Tara and other random lace I had in my stash, plus a tonne of fabulous Prima Marketing Flowers alongside some yummy Ingvild Blome Shabby Resin.

tn_IMG_3339

I have added some texture paste to the ends of the flower petals to help shabby them up a little more and then I decided to add all my sewing threads to the cluster.

tn_IMG_3340

I decided at the last minute to add some blue Tim Holtz Distress Ink to my Chipboard titles to help try make them pop more and I have done this simply with a wet paintbrush straight from the Distress Ink Pad.

Thanks so much for reading along and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another new release share from A2Z Scraplets.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

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
Helmar 450
Masking Tape

Check back tomorrow to see another new release A2Z Scraplet creation.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
