--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "It's the little things" Christmas scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "It's the little things"


This page uses the adorable

I've coloured it with Distress Crayons firstly in red to help it pop off the neutral Christmas page and then with gold accents on the smaller words.


The background features

- Kaisercraft "Christmas Edition"
- Texture paste
- Distress ink through a stencil
- Colour Blast Shimmer Spray "Bling"
- Collectables and die cuts
- sequins
- washi tape
- stamping


I created this on a diagonal with the photo highlighted in the centre.


 It's a busy page, but not overpowering because of the neutral palette.
I love how the chipboard really pops off the background work and helps lift the photo.



Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

CSI Challenge Blog - January Challenge "Hello Sunshine"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for the January challenge at



The inspiration image, really challenged me.



The scene made me think of winter ... so I chose a photo of Master Z wrapped up in his dressing gown.
The story of the dressing gown is documented on the page ...
While on a visit to Nan's house, the twins discovered the grey cat next door.
He's big, fluffy, grey and very friendly... His name is Ralphy.

Not sure how it started but now their dressing gowns are called "Ralphy's"



I've included the colours of the scene - focusing on the yellow.
To match the other colours - I've used Distress Crayons.
The chipboard circular frame is from A2Z Scraplets.

To finish I've added some background stamping, some inking through stencil and embellished with flowers, die cuts and a tag.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Scrap the Girls - January moodboard challenge "Selfie" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

It's been a little while since I played over at
Scrap the Girls

I decided that this months moodboard really spoke to me so I made time to complete a page.

"Selfie"


I just couldn't go past the moodboard.


Beautiful blue tones, patterns and textures - it really spoke to me.
It also helped that I knew I had this photo of which I'm wearing a blue dress.


My background paper is a foil from the French White DCWV collection.
I've used Colour Blast Sprays "Caribbean" and "Indigo" to build layers of colour over texture paste.


Finally for my title, I just picked up this chipboard from A2Z Scraplets and it was just right - for the photo and a great size.
It had one coat of "Just Blue" Colour Blast embossing powder and one coat of "Snow White" Colour Blast embossing powder.

To embellish the page, I've added some flowers (rare for me), butterflies, sequins and die cuts.

I really like how this one came together.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Shine Bright" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Shine Bright"


For this page, I've used the 

I wanted to give it an ombre look, so I coated with white gesso, then coloured with various distress crayons. Finally, I sealed it with Colour Blast Snow White embossing powder.


This collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio has some pretty pops of yellow, so I also included some yellow stars from the Stars and hearts icon set.


The rest of my page features Colour Blast spray "Lagoon" and Distress Crayon.


Thanks for visiting.

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "Cool Kid" Scrapbook layout + process video

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"Cool Kid"



I am so loving these paper pads from DCWV.

  

They are such good value and contain the most wonderful patterns.

I started with the French White + foil 12x12 background paper and then layered with the Lively Geo's collection.


For the background I've added some splatters of colour.
The rest of the page is just tearing and layering - so easy to achieve dimension.


Finally these AC Thicker phrases are such an easy way to embellish a page.

--- Colour Blast DT --- "Hooray" Scrapbook Layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a new project for Colour Blast

This page is "Hooray, Easter Egg Hunt"


For this page I've used the following

Colour Spray Carribean
Colour Spray Lagoon
Colour Spray Indigo
Colour Embossing Powder Just Blue
Colour Embossing Powder Steel
Colour Paste Steel

  




***

I started with this background paper that has a foil pattern
and gathered some supplies.


I've used the Colour Sprays CarribeanLagoon & Indigo
spraying them directly onto the paper and using paper towel to mop up the excess.


I felt like the Indigo got a little lost, so I added some splatters and again dried with paper towel.


I put the bones of the layout together to see if I had added enough spray in the background.


Time to add Colour Paste Steel - just smooth through the stencil like butter!


While the paste is setting naturally, I'm going to work on my chipboard.
I've taken a scrap piece of paper and adhered my chipboard to it - so that it won't move.
Then I've masked some areas with washi tape.


In the unmasked areas I've added Colour Embossing Powder Just Blue


Right now it looks like a huge mess. Once I've masked off the blue and then filled the gaps with Colour Embossing Powder Steel ...

 

You are left with a really cool effect on the chipboard.


Now I'm going to put the rest of the page together.
Starting with my title, some paper layers and a little bit of cheeseclothe.


To bring the page together I've added a Black Heavy Gesso border - roughly with my finger. 


And because I had lots of gesso left, I added some water and then used a paintbrush to add some splatters to the background.


The finished page is one of my favourites.
I love the background against the foil and the two tone chipboard looks awesome.
The large title and mixed lettering, means I could leave the embellishing to a minimum.


You can see the whole process in the video below.
