Art Journal page for Memory Maze Chipboard

Hi can you believe we are in March already - I dont know where this year has gone already.  Today I have created an art journal page for Memory Maze Chipboard.  I have recently got into art journaling - I find it relaxing and a great way to test out products together and also to scrap and get messy without using any family photos.

I started by covering my art journal double page with scraps of  book pages, music pages, map paper and wrapping paper.  I have used a matte gel medium to adhere them to the paper.

I have then started on the layers with Lindy Stamp gang Inks.  I dry between each layer and then add more until I get the colour density that I am happy with.

I have pulled apart the Memory Maze Chipboard little butterflies - they come apart if you spray the chipboard with a little water and gently pull.  I have pulled a littler rougher as I didnt want exact butterflies - more of a grunge butterfly!  I have applied white gesso and then the same Lindy Stamp Gang colours that I used on the pages.

The Memory Maze chipboard swirls are from the wrought iron collection and these were embossed using Stampendous embossing enamel - Shabby Blue.  
For the light bulb, I have used a combination of Stampendous Aged Black enamel and Lindy Stamp Gang Hibiscous Rose Orange.

The picture I have used is from a Pion Design paper collection - From Grandmas Attic.  I have used all these to create the layout.  

Here are some close ups:

Other Products used:
Mini Art Stones, Nuvo Crystal Drops, Nuvo Glitter drops, Prima Drilzy stones, stamp - 49 market Gabi's Grunge Texture set, 

Thanks for stopping by and til next time

Cocoa Vanilla - wild at heart - layout

Hi I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique blog  with a layout using the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection.  This collection is not my normal "go to" type of paper but I love them.  I had alot of fun creating this layout and the rubber charms are awesome - definately a must get.

Here are some close ups:

I have actually cut up the sample cardboard that comes as the front cover of the pack to use as layers.

A little bit of stencilling and highlighting the stencil marks with black texture.  

The title I have painted with Tim Holtz Distress Paint - Chipped Sapphire.

I have linked the products used to the Scrapbook Boutique shop for your convenience.  Until next time

Memorable Moments Layout - for Memory Maze Chipboard

Hi there, today I am on the Memory Maze Chipboard blog sharing my layout that I created of my Grandmother and her brother - I just love the old photos and so pleased that my Mum was interested in our family history and got a heap of photos.

I have used the Prima Collection - Love Clippings.    I have used Lindy Stamp Gang starbursts on the background over some stencilling.

The chipboard has been embossed using Lindy Stamp Gang embossing powders - Terra Cotta Rust and Golden Angel Wings.

I used the following Chipboard pieces:

Memorable moments , enjoy every moment, script, doiley ,fancy ,m
