Shine-Scrapbook Layout

I managed to fit one more project from my July kit from Thompsons craft supplies a scrapbook layout of my eldest daughter at my sons wedding, dont think i will ever be finished the wedding photos lol

For this project i used….
AB studio papers Diva
AB studio stencil ID 94
13 arts color glow Tanzanite
Dina Wakley paint Fuschia
To start i mixed  some of the tanzanite with the fuschia paint and then stencilled it onto my base 12×12 paper from the paper pad.
i then used a little more of the tanzanite with water added to activate it and splattered this onto my sheet, i also added some in powder form and then added a little water to activate.
i then dried my sheet.
i left it to dry properly and cut up some more of my papers into different sizes for layering and distressed the edges with my scissors.
i then did lots of fussy cutting, i  layered my background using foam pads to give it height and with my photo on the top and then layered my fussy cut elements, poking them under on each layers of the back ground.
i found the shine wooden word in my stash and using an embossing powder from my stash i embossed it 3 times to give more height and colour to the word.
lastly i covered my photo and did a little more splattering with my tanzanite.

for this project i used…..
Pentart wax purple
13 arts color glow Tanzanite
Ab studio stencil ID94 
Ab studio paper Diva
Dina Wakley paint Heather.
for this project i got covered in ink again lol
i prepared my page with clear gesso to start and dried it
i then dotted some of the heather paint on the pages and with a sponge spread it about, not solid just dragging it around, i then  dropped some of the color glow on the glass mat, added water to activate and sponged this on too.
when dry i then added some paste through my stencil and dried again.
i then added a little bit of stamping, just randomly all over.
then it was fussy cutting and layering.
deciding on my title.
then i bordered with the wax and some black ink.
to finish i activated the color glow again and splattered.

Life Is A Grand Adventure – Aly

Hello there everyone hope you had a fab weekend and are ready for another fabulous week whatever you are doing!
Today I am sharing a mixed media card using the following supplies –

P13 The Four Seasons 12×12 paper stack
Hobbilicious Ornate Flower Resins
Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide
Tim Holtz Sentiments

Stencil from my stash
oddments of ribbon and sisal
black card and a white card base
Basically I created this card by putting all my elements into a pleasing orientation and then I adhered them all to the card, matted onto a black card and mounted to a white card base, just a simple easy project this week, but rather effective I think.

 

Wooden Organiser – Mixed Media  

Wooden Organiser – Mixed Media

i have had this waiting around to be prettied for quite a few years. After doing the box in these papers, i decided this was the range to do this in too.
another of my DT projects for July for Thompsonscraftsupplies
it is quite a large piece and holds 12 x 12. Therefore, it is great for holding my latest collection as i am working through them, so it is now a permanent fixture on my desk.
for this i used the
13 arts color glow tanzanite
pentart wax purple
AB studio stencil ID 94
AB studio papers diva
Dina Wakley paints heather and fuschia
from my stash i also used a white gesso and a heavy paste.
i completely covered my piece with the white gesso and let it dry.
Then i sponged over that with the heather and the fuchsia  paints.
After I added some of the tanzanite here and there and activated it with water and dried.
Next was the papers. I fussy cut and used gel medium to glue them on all over the piece. Even the half flowers from the edge of the papers were good as i had a lot of straight edges to place them.
i then coloured my heavy paste with a drop of the fuchsia paint and used this with my stencil, just overlapping the papers in places and filling the gaps in between my papers.
when this was dry i added some more of the color glow tanzanite powder and activated with water and moved the colours around, i then dried it with my heat gun. Lastly, i used my pentart wax to bring out more of the texture from the stencil paste.
