One of the things that I am loving at the moment is getting back in touch with my stencils and playing with some ink….. it has been awhile.

Use some blender brushes through the stencil and keep building up the colours ….. dont like what you did? Dilute with water and add some more when its dry….. this will give some depth to the layout and background.

Add foam tape to different elements throughout the layout, this will add interest and also allow you to add more leaves and see glimpses of your mixed media work.

So I am off to catch some some sunshine…… till next time have a creative day.

Favourite Day

Good morning how are you? Well I always joke about needing more time….. we are lucky as its a leap year and we have another 24 hrs…..what are you planning to do with your extra time? Myself I am here to finish off the month with a layout using the amazing Native Breeze.

You can download a PDF file HERE and if you want to follow along you can do so with a Process Video HERE

PRODUCTS USED:
 
PAPERS: NATIVE BREEZE Collection: P2856 Banksia Bouquet, P2858 Gum Leaves, P2860 Eucalyptus, P2861 Native Flock, P2862 Sundown, SK824 Sticker Sheet,

To start this layout I knew that I wanted the eucalyptus pattern to be further down the page to to move it I chopped off the bottom 3rd and then uses some of that to rip layers to add to the top…..

When sticking the strips down dont go to nuts with the tape because you want to add all the native flowers and fussy cutting in between those layers.

So have fun with your extra 24 hours and till next time have a creative day xxxxx

Moments

Good morning how are you? Nothing like kicking off the New Year with some new collection and feeling inspired….. what inspires you?

I am here with this months new and only collection Lily and Moss……

This collection has amazing soft pink and green tones with some stunning floral features.

For me its all about the layers and adding some fussy cutting in between those layers also. So to see how this layout was created you can follow the process video HERE. And download a PDF HERE.

To be able to add things into the layers dont add a lot of tapes or glues to the edges this allows you to add things and it gives it a freer look.

Add banners from the sticker book to add different details to your layers and finish off with a Curios.

Till next time have a creative day.

For me sometimes a lot of pattern papers need to be anchor with a bold colour, dont be afraid to use the brown leather look to be the anchor.

Good morning how are you? What do you think of this months collections? They are very inspiring and today I am here to share with you a fairly quick and easy layout especially when we are getting to the crazy part of the year where we want to scrap but we are finding it increasingly harder with time, family and all that that goes with the festive season.

So you can follow along with the PROCESS VIDEO HERE and also a downloadable PDF HERE.


PRODUCTS USED:  
PAPERS: LADY LIKE Collection: P2874 Rose, P2878 Delores, P2881 Pasty, P2882 Evelyn, SK820 Sticker Book, CR220 Curios, CT974 Collectables

Deconstruct the wood panels and then use a distress tool on the edges. To make more of an impact once stuck down go and tear the gaps open some more, to give it a bolder look.

Sometimes less is more and this also applies to your embellishment clusters …. you dont need a lot and the key is to keep them compact.

To create negative space us a smaller photo and by placing your title to the bottom and away from the top it will help get a bigger impact with this technique.

Till next time have a creative day.

Beach Days …..

Good morning how are you? What do you think of this months NEW Collections? They are amazing. I am kicking off the month with Uncharted Waters IN STORE NOW.

So to help you get started I have a Process Video here and a downloadable PDF file here

Now if you want to see how the flowers where made you can follow the link here and see how to create your very own Art Foam Flowers.


PRODUCTS USED:  
PAPERS: UNCHARTERED WATERS Collection: P2854 Pelagic, PP1079, CT973 Collectables,

KC PRODUCTS: Art Foam, DD651 Captains Wheel Decorative Die, Decorative Die – 3D Layered Peony, LDB1056 Foam Tape, F627 White Paper Blooms.
 
Other: Paper Clay, Art Stones, Diamond Dust, Copic Ciao Markers.

So to start off I would spend the time making the flowers and setting them aside it can be a little bit labour intensive but you could just make them all with Kaiser Art Foam white and colour when needed for all your layouts. I used the Kaisercraft 3d layered

Peony die. I used some rhinestones and some stamen centers.

Another thing to point out is I used paper clay in a mold to create my shells so thats another thing to do ahead of time as its takes roughly 24 hrs to dry. They are very lightweight and work considering as an option when creating this style of layout.

If you dont have it is ok try real shells …..


To finish off the layout its all about all the bumpy, lumpy things like art stones, sand, prills and something sparkly drew drops, diamond dust, glass shards……

So till next time have a creative day…….
