Heart You

Good day! I’ve been having a blast teaching at Scrapaholics this month & I’m giving a big & thankful shout out to all the lovely ladies that attended my classes.  Today I get to share with you my blue & gold fun mixed media layout class:

“Heart You”

Heart You

Shiny, shimmery, inky & glittery…we’ve had some messy fun in the class for sure.

Loving all the Green Tara flowers in this layout.  Hopefully they get to supply more of these soon.

My daughter gave me the 2 thumbs up for this layout.  I’m so lucky to have children who adore looking through their scrapbooks (made by their mom of course!).  Just one of the many reasons I thoroughly enjoy this craft, & now I’m on a mission to share it.  I hope you’ve had a great month & thanks for popping in.  Do check out my class at Scrapaholics next month here.  It’ll be a set of 3 cards this time using the beautiful Storyteller range.  Hope to see you there. 🙂

Cheers,

Nice To Meet You

Hi there, how’s it going? I’m posting a layout featuring the Oh So Lovely collection for Artfull Crafts today.  I have already mentioned before that it’s a very pretty & ultra feminine collection.  My last Oh So Lovely post has the specialty die cut gloss paper as my base, & today I’ll be showing you my second one which has a plain cardstock instead.

“Nice To Meet You”

Nice To Meet You

For this page I’ve used 6 different sheets from the paper pad for the background.  I’ve cut them up into a variety of small pieces & lightly layered some gesso on top.

I then added some texture paste with a damask template.  When completely dried, I’ve layered 3 different colors on it: Prima Cotton Candy Color Bloom Spray, Grape Ape Chalkboard Mist & Periwinkle Bouquet Glimmer Mist both by Tattered Angels.

I’ve also added a few die cut pieces from the collectables & paper pad.

The flower cluster is added to the right side of the photo which consist of the following delicious flowers: Zva Pink Graceful Roses, Jasmine Paper Flower, Kaisercraft Sea Breeze Paper Blooms & Prima Marketing flowers.

More touches were added to the background with Kaisercraft texture stamp & The Crafter’s workshop stencil with some dark purple ink.

It’s all finished off with alpha stickers for the title, green pearls, a dragonfly chipboard & some journaling.  I don’t have the best handwriting in the world but I really wanted to document the story behind this gorgeous photo.

This is the second time I’ve used purple on my layouts & I’m very pleased how it turned out. This color gave this layout an extra lift & it goes so well altogether.  I’m not scared of purple anymore…woohoo! Do check out the Oh So Lovely collection here.  Thanks for taking the time to drop in & enjoy your week. 🙂

Cheers,
