12x12 Layout for the Scrapbook Boutique

Hi Everyone, I am on the Scrapbook Boutique blog with a layout that I created using a photo of some flowers in my garden.  I used to have a lovely garden but without the time to get out there and being allergic to ants and bees we are slowing reducing the garden variety to limit the maintenance.

I have used the fantastic paper from 49 & Market Heirlooms Botanical Collection.  This paper is super thick and can withstand alot of mixed media.   I do apply clear gesso to the entire sheet as I like the inks to pool and dry and not soak into the paper.

I have created the close ups using different computerised coloured backgrounds to show the different effect they can have on the layout.

I have used the Nuvo Mousse - Mother of Pearl through a diamond stencil on the background.  Once dried I have sprayed Lindy Stamp Gang sprays and Magicals around the area of where the photo will be.  I did apply water to them so they would spread around the layout.  Once it was all dry I have used the Kaisercraft Marble Stamp with a Stazon Ink Pad in Timber Brown

The flowers are Blue Fern Studio.  I have coloured the Art stones with Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals - Raspberry Lemonade and Cotton Candy Pink.  This is fiddly but looks great.

I stamped the Kaisercraft Brick Stencil stamp onto the background and used Stampendous Embossing powder.  I love this stamp as I dont want a super clean image and it is more grungy.

The Wood Veneer title is from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection.  I covered it with gesso using a sponge to get the bumpy finish.  I then painted it with the Lindy Stamp Gang Magical - Raspberry Lemonade.

I have linked the products used to the Scrapbook Boutique shop below.

FWAB - DT Cards

I love the Pion Design papers and thought I would create some cards using the Chloe Pearl Flourish, Pearl Rhinestones and FWAB flowers. It is amazing how far these products go when you use them in pieces for smaller things such as cards.  I have kept the cards simple – without mixed media – as I felt the paper and FWAB products were the focus.

I have used FWAB Chloe PearlFWAB Adhesive Pearls in pearl and FWAB flowers FWAB flowers as well as  Pion Design Paper, Distress Ink – Frayed Burlap and Bundled Sage.  We R Memory Keepers Embossing Folder – Geometric, Prima Metal Die – confetti Hearts, Spellbinders Die Cut – Decorative Curved Square, Bo Bunny Die Cut – 3×4 Ornate Frame.

In the above and below cards I have used the FWAB Chloe pearl flourish and cut it up into pieces to suit my card

In the card below I have used a FWAB white Elise flower

In the card below of this cute teddy and his friends I have used a FWAB pink Maddison flower

In the card below I have used the FWAB Adhesive Pearls

Another card below where I have used the FWAB Chloe Pearl flourish and cut it up to suit my card, as well as a FWAB white Elise flower.

LYNN -    (you are here) 

Here are some process photos and close ups:

I began with a 12x12 chipboard panel and placed torn up pieces of book paper and dictionary paper.  I then applied White Crackle paste around the layout in different thicknesses to provide texture.  Once the crackle was completely dry, I coloured with gelatoes - Bubblegum and sprayed with water.  I then got a wet wipe and rubbed around the layout so the colour went into the cracks.  I continued with this until I got the desired result.

On the bottom third of the layout I applied the Finnabair paint - Wild Fushsia and Vintage Rose, as well as splatters of both and gesso.

Once all was dried I compiled the layout using the Wild at Heart Collectables, flairs, frames and Wood Veneers.

I covered the hearts with the Finnabair paint - Wild Fuchsia and the title with the Vintage Rose.

Keep applying the gelatoes until you get the desired colour.

Kaisercraft Marble Stamp was applied with black ink around the photo layout area.

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget to keep blog hopping :)
