Hello Scrapbook Layout - for The Scrapbook Boutique

Good morning -Today I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog sharing a layout I have created using the Cocoa Vanilla Collection  - Love Always.  This collection is just devine.  I have created a layout of my son and his girlfriend.

I have linked the products used on this layout at the bottom of the blog.

I started with clear gesso over the layout so when I applied the water colours they didnt soak into the paper.  I then used Matte Medium to lay strips of paper from the Love Always collection for a background.  On top of this I have used The Crafters Workship - Diamond stencil and texture paste. This how is looks so far

Excuse the photo - it was taken with my phone at night so has the light reflection on it.  You will see that at this stage I used some texture paste and stencilled the words Friends and Friendship.  This was hidden under my photo mat which I was ok with as the pink wasnt quite the right colour!

At this point I used Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals - T Bird Turquoise and Cotton Candy Pink for the background colours.

Here are some close ups:

I used Liquid Pearls - Petal Pink and Mint Green randomly around the layout.

I have used pieces from the Love Always collections to create the photo mat and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time Happy Crafting. 
Dont forget to check out the items I have used in the Store either here or on the product links below.

DT reveal - "forever" layout - 7 Aug

Hi there, I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog to share a layout that I created using the Cocoa Vanilla "Love Always" collection - and what a better subject than a wedding!

I started by applying crackling texture paste with two stencils - a Dusty attick flower stencil and Kaisercraft "love quarters" (please excuse the photo quality but it was done at night and the light was too reflective and/or not good enough).  Once the paste was dry I have applied a mixture of inks - Prima Colour Bloom - Cotton Candy, Prima Mica Powders - Lilac Opal Magic and Green Opal Magic, Perfect Pearls Mists - Perfect Pearl and Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals - Tilt a wheel teal, t bird turquoise and cotton candy pink.

I then cut up doilees by tearing the edges from the centre and then cutting into three pieces.  I have layered these on top of each other to frame around the photo. I have used Prima 3D Matte gel to adhere them

I have then added some of the Cocoa Vanilla Bitty Blooms, Bits and Pieces, Die Cut Ephemera and a flair button.

Some Close ups:

Thanks for stopping by, and til next time - Happy Crafting
