--- 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.
Happy Scrapping. 

--- 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.

Scrap the Boys - January challenge - Flowers "Hello, Hello"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout for
Scrap the Boys January challenge.

My layout "Hello Hello"



This months challenge is to use "Flowers on a boys page"



Easy right?

I started with floral patterned paper, but dampened it down with some white gesso.
Then added some Distress Ink through a flower stencil.
I've used flower paper in my cluster and of course ...


Paper flowers!


I don't particularly love this page - I think it's got too much going on and I much prefer the clean style scrapping, but I've recorded the memory and played along at STB.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Happy Holiday Memory" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Happy Holiday Memory"


This layout started as a background experiement and quickly developed from there ...

I pulled out this washi tape that I didn't really know how to use.
I started making lines of it on the page and then covered the whole thing with clear gesso.


When the gesso was dry - I used Distress Crayon to smudge some more colour around the lines.
I also wanted some really subtle colour - so I sprayed some Colour Spray "Bling" freestyle.
Then I added some stamping and black ink splatters.


The chipboard pieces are the spotty circles
I've given them a coat of gesso and then covered them with metallic Distress Crayon.


Finally I've chosen this photo because it had a little pop of colour to go with my very neutral background.

I've added some journalling, title and butterflies to finish the page.


Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
