Preschool Pic 2013 Berry71Bleu September Challenge

Howdy everybody. I am back today to share a fabulous layout with you all that I have recently created for the Berry71Bleu September Sketch Challenge. The extra requirement for this month’s challenge is to use Mixed Media and you can view the challenge details here on the Berry71Bleu Challenge Blog...

This layout I have created using one of the awesome kits available from A2Z Scraplets which you can find here.

tn_IMG_3900

To create my background, I have covered my white cardstock with random shaped and sized paper doilies. I wanted to add lots of subtle texture to the background and I have covered them completely in Mod Podge Matte.

tn_IMG_3901

Next I have sprayed some various Lindy Stamp Gang sprays using a Prima Marketing Static Mask. I only sprayed very small sections randomly in 3 different colours. I have then swiped an embossing ink pad over the entire background gently so I grabbed some of the texture and not just covered the lot and then I have sprinkled some Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing Powder over the top and heat set.

tn_IMG_3902

The papers that I have used are from the Firefly Collection from Prima Marketing and the flowers are a combination of Flourish with a Bling, Green Tara, Kaisercraft & Prima Marketing. When layering my distressed patterned papers, I have included some ripped and torn cheescloth in between.

tn_IMG_3903

I have finished off the layout using some of the torn pieces of cheesecloth placed over my flower clusters and then added some random sequins to match the drips on the sketch.

Here is the sketch from Berry71Bleu this month. Don’t forget to head on over and have a go there are awesome prizes up for grabs always.

Products Used Include…

American Crafts 12×12 White Cardstock

tn_IMG_3446

and a couple of closeups…

tn_IMG_3449

I have used the new release Days Like This Title and I wanted to create my own background with this fabulous title for a change. To do this, I have simply place my chipboard title raw, over the cardstock (Bazzil Bling Yellow) and then sprayed with Black Heidi Swapp Color Shine, moved the chipboard title around and sprayed again and again and again. This has created a fabulous gradual tone of black to yellow and an awesome graffiti looking custom background to match my title.  I also wanted to add a little bit more colour to my background so I have splattered some Teal & Primrose Pink Color Shine randomly.

tn_IMG_3448

I have then added some Yellow Tim Holtz Crackle Paint to the words “LIKE THIS” and decided to spray some Mustard Yellow Heidi Swapp Color Shine over the top to allow some glimmer to soak into those cracks. Then I realised how silly I was doing a yellow title on a yellow background, so I started to scrape some of the crackle paint off to leave the fabulous yellow glimmer cracks showing only with a few chunks of messy crackle paint left here and there. This is definately a fun technique that I will try again because Crackle Paint needs tooth and the Color Shine mist didn’t create that tooth for it. I then outlined the DAYS word with some Pink Flamingo Ranger Liquid Pearls and cut my title up to use as I wanted on the layout.

tn_IMG_3447

The papers and stickers that I have used for this layout are all from the Echo Park Paper Co Here & Now Collection which is a new favourite of mine! I just adore the fun bright colours and fabulous patterns.

To coincide with our fabulous Blog Hop, there are some fabulous new release A2Z Scraplets designed with this challenge quote and therefore even more challenge inspiration for you all!

Now onto the layout. I have created this fabulous layout using the new A2Z Scraplets Love You Chipboard title. You can see the first installment of new releases over on the A2Z Scraplets Blog here.

tn_IMG_3345

To decorate the chipboard title, I have sprayed the chipboard with lots of Heidi Swapp Color Shine Teal and then allowed to dry completely before adding some Helmar Crackle Medium Step 1 & 2. I wanted the cracks to show up better so I have rubbed some Yellow Ranger Liquid Pearls into the cracks and then wiped most of it from the top layer so the cracks stayed yellow.

tn_IMG_3346

The papers that I have used for this layout are from the Echo Park Paper Co Beautiful Life Collection. I just adored layering these beautiful patterns together and lots of fabulous stitching details added that extra definition to each layer.

tn_IMG_3347

The background was created with a simple piece of White 12×12 Bazzil cardstock and a fabulous 12×12 Heidi Swapp Stencil alongside 2 shades of her Color Shine, Peach & Mustard. To create this ombre effect, I have simply sprayed over the stencil, first the peach into the centre, then the mustard on the outter edges then spraying each colour toward each other until I had the desired effect. You could do this with lots of different contrasting colour sprays also.

tn_IMG_3348

A few extra touches including doilies, tags, tickets, twine, Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, Studio Calico Ephemera and a fussy cut banner from one of the papers and I was finished.

tn_IMG_3349

I decided to do hidden journalling under one of the layers which you can see here pulled out.

Well that is it from me today, be sure to check back tomorrow for some more fabulous inspiration and until next time, happy scrapping!

Totally Love This Chickie – July A2Z Scraplets New Release

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

Hi everyone! So glad to have you here to share another fabulous layout using the new July Release gorgeous A2Z Scraplets chipboard. Checkout the first release blog post on the A2Z Scraplets Blog here and keep checking back here for more how tos from me.

tn_IMG_3341

To create this layout, I have used the fabulous papers and stickers from Echo Park Here & Now Collection along side some super cute My Minds Eye Enamel Dots, Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico & Pink Paislee Elements.

tn_IMG_3342

The awesome chipboard LOVE word was embossed using Tim Holtz Sizzix Embossing Folder and then painted using some Acrylic paints ombre style, followed by some inking with Ranger Black Archival Ink on the raised dots. I just love this title it is so fun and has so many possibilities.

tn_IMG_3343

Some doodling, layering and thickers added to the title then voila! She was finished and was a super quick layout because of the lack of paint mediums. The chipboard always dried really quickly with water based paints if you are sparing which is awesome.

tn_IMG_3344

Well that is it from me today, be sure to check back tomorrow for some more A2Z Scraplets July New Releases Inspiration and until next time, happy scrapping!

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!
