Sweet child of mine!

Hi everyone, I'm sharing a fun, mixed media project with you today.  My oldest daughter loves taking fun selfies, and I'm always finding hundreds of them on my phone!  Of course I couldn't ever scrap them all, but I thought she looks so sweet in these!

Emboss the corners using Tied Together embossing folder.  Spread some modelling paste through a stencil using a palette knife, and allow to dry.  Spray a few mists to add colour.

 Add diecut doily and flowers, Pearls Gemstones and squiggles of Pearl Drops.

Colour the white flowers using mists.

Add photos, and title.

Vintage with a twist!

Hi everyone!  
I hope you've been enjoying the holiday season and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  I'd like to share this layout I created to showcase this photo of my Mum and her sister taken in the 1940's.  I used the Vintage Rose Garden paper range, but added a twist with some mixed media components.

I layered the paper and added some modelling paste, embossing powders and torn strips of paper - some of which have been embossed.

I added mists in blues and greens which really made it pop!

Spray diecuts and allow to dry.

Spray flowers to colour them, I used two colours on mine.

Here is my completed layout!

I embossed the chipboard inserts using Garden Frame embossing folder, and heat embossed the other pieces to create a nice contrast.

Lots of photos!

Here's one you probably weren't expecting from me... a clean and simple layout!  I just adore this photo of my cat Mishka, and wanted to keep the focus on her sweet face.  I used the Hearts Ease papers as they toned in beautifully with my photo.

I made multiple cuts with the Star Of Jasmine die, and inked the edges.  I embossed the cardstock pieces and sanded them.

I added Premium Adhesive pearls and Gemstones and some of the adorable new 1cm paper flowers.

Bonus layout......Ever have too many photos that you want to include on your page, but still want space to include embellishments and journalling?  Here's a great solution to that challenge.

I die-cut some pieces to use as simple embellishments.

I embossed some of my paper layers using Woodgrain and Geo Squares.

The chipboard letters were embossed using Grunge Frame and Woodgrain, then inked.

I created a flap to allow extra photos and journaling to be added without taking away from the design of the page.  I was able to fit eleven photos (with space for up to fifteen)!

Delightful Dancers

I created this layout using the beautiful Heart's Ease collection from Couture Creations.  I just love the muted colours, 

The Couture Creations flowers were altered using mists in complementing tones, and gold beads were put in some of the centres.

Petite Doilies were layered behind the flowers.

I embossed some of my layered papers to create extra texture.

The chipboard title by Imaginarium designs was heat embossed.

Clean and simple???

This is my version of a clean and simple layout, still using some of my favourite mixed media products like pastes, mists and embossing powders combined with some gorgeous Couture Creations die-cuts and Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

I kept the design simple, with repetition of the doilies, and only using two colours.

Cut one of each from the following dies- Rowena, Keepsake Kandy, Simone's Style, Victoria, Lotus Daily, and So Lace.   Spritz doily diecuts with shimmer mist and allow to dry.

Apply various coloured pastes through stencil and allow to dry.

Create texture on the frame using paste.

Emboss chipboard title.

Colour the Cottage Pollen Flower using mists. Adhere elements across the pages.
