Amy celebrates her birthday with style!

Good morning lovelies, 
On my birthday and I would like to share a 12 by 12 layout using the amazing wonderful February "Watercolor Wishes" kit at Scraps of Elegance. This is a gorgeous kit with all pretty 49 and Market goodies in it but also some pretty metal pieces and other stunning embellishments this is just a must have kit. 

Together we Smile:

 The picture I used is of my precious cousin her daughters Nadene and Hanna and I really love this picture of them {it's so sweet}. I really got inspired to use this picture because of the lovely haute couture stamp set by Gabrielle Pollacco that was also in this kit.





I also used some sticker words that I had in my stash but you can also print words or text on a pieces of patterned paper and just print it out that works fine for me on most layouts. The chipboard piece I used here is treated with rust paste by Finnabair and it was cut in two.





Those glass stones that are in this kit are just the bomb wow I really enjoyed using them on this particular layout. The pretty metal bird you see at the bottom picture is by Prima Marketing and is so adorable. I used the pretty stencil in the kit on different parts of my layout and also I added a bunch of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on this piece.





This main kit is still available at the Scraps of Darkness/Elegance Store so it you would like it please be quick because it's amazing. Just take a good look at all these yummy products below.





Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and have a wonderful week...
Love

2 sweet layouts by Tatiana: mixed media with a bit of bling!

Hi! Tatiana here
I adore to add bling and shine to my projects and with February Scraps of Darkness kit 'Our Story' it's easy to do, because this month kit includes papers from Prima 'Love clippings' collection with rose foil accents and BoBunny foil rub-ons.
I created layout about one warm fall day in the park. For my layout I used Blue Fern Studios paper, Prima journaling cards and pieces of Prima paper with foil accents. I also added Kaisercraft glitter cardstock.


Chipboard was covered with distress marker included in the kit, I also added a little bit of bling to it with glitter. When layering was finished I added rub-ons and background stamping.




Butterflies were cut from journaling card, leaves were stamped on the cork and cut. I also added die cut leaves which were covered with two layers of embossing powder. As the final touches were added sequins, rhinestones splashes and pearls.

This time I'd like to share layout with dark paper included in the Main February Scraps of Darkness kit. This paper is from Blue Fern Studios' Memoirs Collection.


For my layout I used my daughter's photo. I dressed her in a modern variation of Little Red Riding Hood costume and we took wonderful series of photo.


On the first step I added texture to my background using stencil included in the Elements add on and textured paste with sand. When all was dried I randomly applied transparent crackle paste and start layering.


For the layers behind the photo I used Prima paper pieces and journaling cards, I also cut doily pieces from one of Prima paper included in the Main kit. I also used scraps with notes from the magazine and Prima chipboard from previous Scraps of Darkness kit.


For my layout I also created cork embellishments. I stamped images on the cork and cut them out.


When layering was finished, I added BoBunny rub-ons, background stamping with the stamp included in the Main kit and added colour using Magicals, Lindy's  mists, Jacquard paint and glitter brush pen from previous kit. At the final step I added splashes, liquid pearls, rhinestones and pearls.

Instead of a photo, I decided to use the Gabrielle Pollacco Ballerina Stamp included in the kit.  After I started I decided to add all the embellishments to create like a dress, I love the result!!! I used a lot of flowers from the kit and flower add-on kit too.

3 gorgeous mixed media projects: layouts and tags

Hello!
Today I'd like to share my first project featuring February Scraps of Darkness kit 'Our Story'. 

This photo was taken several years ago in the poppy field. It was beautiful evening in the end of spring. I want to save this moment and created a layout with color palette similar to the photo.


For the background I used Blue Fern Studios paper from the main kit. This thick paper is ideal for mixed media experiments, but I previously covered it with thin layer of clear medium also (as I do with thinner paper). After medium dried I made background stamping using stamp from the kit. Layering behind the photo was created from journaling notecards and leftovers from the previous kits (Prima chipboard and stickers).


Then I added colors using Magcals (brown from the February kit) and Glitter brush pens from the previous kits. Then all was dried I applied stencil with permanent marker, added BoBunny rub-ons and a little bit of stamping again.


My next layer was created using glitter, beads, micro beads, flakes, sequins, liquid pearls (from the previous kits), rhinestones and pearls. Chipboard heart was covered with one layer of paint, then I added glitter.



On the last step I added splashes to my project.


For my layout I used from the Main kit:

paper from Prima's Love Clippings Collection
paper from Blue Fern Studios' Memoirs Collection
Prima 3x4' Love Clippings Journaling Notecards
Ruby Rock-It Bella! Champagne Bubbles Clear Stamp
Lindy's Stamp Gang Milk Chocolate Magical Shimmer Powder

Here is my second layout featuring February Scraps of Darkness kit 'Our Story'.

I created layout about one beautiful day in our summer cottage. Girls were drawing and chatting. When I'm looking at this photo my heart is full of peace and happiness, that's why I decided to use soft colors for my project.


I cut cage with two birds from one of the papers included in the Main kit. Butterflies were cut from the journaling card. Layers behind the photo were created using paper from the kit, journaling cards and Prima chipboard from one of the previous kit.


Chipboard were colored by Distress marker. Also I added to my background foil rub-ons and washi tape from a previous Scraps of Darkness kit.



On the final step as always I added rhinestones, pearls and splashes.

Prima's Love Clippings Collection
Prima 3x4' Love Clippings Journaling Notecards (45 card pack)
