LOVE.. This is Our Story... with Connie

Monday, September 22, 2014

Hi Everyone! It's me Connie and I am here on the blog today with my page.  I used the gorgeous September Kit" We are Family".
I love layers, texture, flowers and lace. I used a picture of my daughter Serena and her boyfriend Skye.  These 2 beautiful people just happen to match my September Kit and now they are the focus of  my Layout.

I used several paper layers and added molding paste and the Lace stencil.

Here is a closeup of the banner. I created banner using the stickers from the sticker sheet, black Card stock and Twine.  You can see the stamps and the doily is inked.

Here is the right corner. 

The bottom right corner with the flower cluster I added a pearl to the butterflies

Here is a close up of left bottom corner. I used the sticker sheet from the kit for the title and the border. I added lace and some flatback pearls. I also added some lace from my stash. 

Thanks for looking. Here are the items from Frosted Designs Store.


Power of Thought with Tamiko

Sunday, September 21, 2014

Happy Sunday to you! Tamiko here with the Moonlit Dreams Kit! Before I begin I feel obligated to let you know that this kit is quickly selling out and there are only a few left! When it's gone.. It will be GONE!  Take a moment to grab a kit today for yourself and/or another fairy enthusiast! ::smile::

If you have the book, she's on page six.. ::giggles::

I chose her, because she looks like a fairy with a little bit of an edge! She is confident. She knows her value. The POWER of THOUGHT the Magic of the Mind. If you think it and believe it,  you will.. and it shall be.  Do you BELIEVE in fairies?  Do you believe that you CAN draw anything you try?   Well this fairy does.. and it shows..

I used my large Dylusions Creative journal. I really like that book.  The pages withstand all kinds of medium.  The cover is kraft and it allows you freely personalize your cover as it just a blank canvas itself.  Inside the front page contains a pocket where you could keep a few of your favorite art journaling items close by.  Anyway.. I really like it! (said that already, then it must be true)
I drew my image in pencil. Then went over it with a permanent pen, the Faber Castell Big Brush Pitt Pen, which is currently available in the September kit, We Are Family!  I added a little water to my gesso, so I could still see my image through the gesso and applied the acrylic paints.  Then I found a quote fitting for the page.  Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by.


Happiness Found with Joni!!!!

Friday, September 19, 2014

It's Joni Parker hosting today's post... and I'm sharing with you how I use typical Project Life elements but on a traditional scrapbook layout.

Here I used the Elle's Studio line "Everyday Moments" and created a layout that is in the typical block style of a project life page, but I used a 12x12 background instead of pocket pages.

I used pieces from the Journal Tags (Highlights), from Bits and Pieces (Extraordinary), from Lil Snippets (Details Please and Remember) and I cut a piece from a larger sheet (Happiness Found)

I also used a Jillibean Soup mini placemat for a frame .. (Best Day Ever).
And I tied it all together with 4 small border strips and a few wooden stars.

So don't be afraid to purchase items that are created for Project Life...those can be used just as well on traditional scrapbooking layouts (and they are easy to use too!)!!


The Deconstructed Layout with Anita!!!

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Hi everyone, it's Anita here today to share a new 
Deconstructed Layout with you this morning.
I hope you are enjoying these tutorials as much as I am!
Of course, I am using some fabulous products from Frosted Designs for my layout today.

For today's tutorial, we are going to talk about background texture. I love working with stencils and molding paste, but there are times when I want to add a little something more to it. 
For this layout, I wanted to really play up the color of the We R Memory Keepers paper, which was a beautiful  orange. So I grabbed a stencil, my Molding Paste and knife, some DISTRESS GLITTER and a jar of LINDY'S STAMP GANG FLAT SHOT  in Mango Mania.
I mixed some Distress Glitter (Clear Rock Candy) and My Mango Mania Flat Shot together in a small cup and set it aside. Once I had spread a THICK coat of molding paste and removed the stencil, I poured the mixture over the paste, letting the excess run off onto a scrap of paper. 
This is what you end up with. Now, the background will be PLAIN. The reason mine is orange, is because I sprayed it with Dylusions White Linen- the residual Flat Shot that was on the paper will turn colors when the spray hits it. If you don't want the paper to be colored, just don't spray it!
Set this aside to dry, like over night. Seriously. Then you will need to seal it. REALLY. 
You will need to seal it, or it will get all over your hands every time you touch it. 
Trust me on this. 
I use Helmar's Crystal Coat Matte Varnish, but any spray sealer will work.
I added Glitz 77 stickers, flowers, and resin accents from the Summer's End Kit, some lace and a chipboard from Blue Fern Studios. To color the chippie, I used plain old pan watercolors then misted with iridescent ink. 
I used Midnight Copper Embossing Powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang for my title.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
