Here is my take on this amazing palette. I was planning on using the fabulous sketch as inspiration also but alas I got carried away in my own creativity.

The background White Cardstock has been decorated using some PanPastels and Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Mists.

Next step was to add a doily and my photos. I have distressed the edges of my photos using a nail file and added a super cute Studio Calico Paper Clip, some Washi Tape, Heidi Swapp Buzz Word and an awesome Prima Shabby Resin Frame. I have added some colour to the frame using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I then went to town adding some flowers. Yes I usually go overboard but is there such thing as too many flowers? LOL I have also added some yummy Flourish with a Bling flourish pieces around the cluster and to the left, there is some lace and Heidi Swapp Banners poking out from underneath.

I then decided to add some Washi Tape, Pink Paislee Artisan Element Circl and a Prima clock to the bottom corner. The Pink Paislee Artisan Element was distressed with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Some added journalling, Prima Baubles, Studio Calico Stars & Sequins and my layout was complete. I added some colour to the Wood Veneer stars using some more Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Well that is it from me today, I am moving house today YAY so I will be quiet for a few days but don’t forget to check back next week for the announcement of my giveaway and maybe a new giveaway announcement 🙂

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Hello everyone! I am back today to share a layout created using this fortnight’s The Color Room palette. Click here to visit the Color Room website to join in the fun…

Here is my layout using these colours. Yum…Icecream in Nelson Bay.

TCR#151_AmyPrior

I had fun creating my background using 7 Dots Studio Patterned Paper and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays. I have also used strips of various papers from BoBunny, Heidi Swapp, Prima, as well as some old book paper.

Washi Tape was also added with some lace and an A2Z Scraplets scalloped piece which was actually a scalloped nested frame trimmed. I have simply coated this with some Perfect Pearls powder.

Above the strips of Washi Tape and Paper, I have added an A2Z Scraplets Heart & Swirl 7 Chipboard that has been simply coated with a layer of Cardboard Simply Jane Mist from Tattered Angels, and then some Stickles on the little hearts. I didn’t focus any details on the large heart because I knew I wanted to cover that with my photos.

Some old book paper was used to mount the photos and then some Helmar Scrap Dots helped me add them to my layout with a little height. Lots of fabulous flowers from Prima, Kaisercraft, Manor House Creations & Green Tara are nestled on top of a beautiful Flourish with a Bling Pearl Flourish.

Finally some alpha for the title and a little doodling/journalling then voila! my finished page. I have used Ranger Coffee Brown Archival Ink for all my distressing as well.

Well that is it from me today, Be sure to check back tomorrow for another layout share. Until next time, happy scrapping!

Now onto some closeups of course. The patterned paper of choice for this layout was a combination of Heidi Swapp and Studio Calico. The background was given more textured layers by adding some Kaisercraft Paint mixed with Texture Paste using a Crafters Workshop Stencil. When the paint was still wet, I have sprinkled some Orange Micro Beads over the top and then splattered some random spots of Perfect Pearls Mist. Next I have used some Punchinella with Distress Ink to create the circles randomly and followed by some random stamping using my Stampin Up Background Stamp and some WOW Embossing Powder.

The easiest way to create such a random embossed effect, is to stamp the entire surface using embossing adhesive, followed by pouring the powder over like normal. Before you heat set it, grab yourself a paint brush and brush away random sections of the powder including very solid blocks and lines etc. This gives a more natural feel and some of the embossing powder stuck to the micro beads which I thought was a cool effect.

The Banners and Brace Shape Chipboar pieces are of course from A2Z Scraplets. The Banner has been covered with some super cute Washi Tape that I found at my local Kmart store last week. I have then added some White Pearl Strips and sprayed with Lindys Stamp Gang Fabio Spray. The Brace shape was first covered with a red patterned paper and then some orange striped washi tape was used over the top. I didn’t have much Tangerine so figured this was a good way to create it but it just turned out Orange so I went ahead and sprayed some Orange Perfect Pearls Mist over the top anyway. Gotta add that sparkle!

Lots of other beautiful elements to this layout including Handmade Halo Mulberry Flower that I have coloured using Lindys Stamp Gang Fabio Spray, Charms Creations Page Runner, My Minds Eye Printed Chipboard Piece as well as some Studio Calico Tags.

Overall I was really happy with how this layout turned out as these colours are definately out of my comfort zone. Be sure to head on over to the Color Room website here and play along for your chance to win some fab prizes.
