Life Documented with Connie!

Hi everyone. It's me Connie and I am hosting the blog today.  I created a page with a picture of my Daughter and her Boyfriend in their Prom attire.  I had ordered about 200 photo's online and they did not arrive.  I was getting ready to print a couple at home and place another order at the store when this box arrived. A gentleman had my photo's in with his order and when he looked at them he knew they would be missed and he mailed them to me.  I am very grateful and lucky.

Here is the page
I mixed the Summer's end and the Enchanted kits.


Here is a close up
I made rolled roses with the pattern papers


I added a sticker for the title


I cut the doily in the kit in half and added flowers from the End of Summer kit.

Mixed Media Canvas with Channa!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Good morning all, 

Channa here, and today i am sharing a mixed media canvas for you. 
I was ready to play around and get messy and see below how it turned out:


I used one sheet of paper of the 7 dots, Cold country collection pack. Together with some embellishments, such as flowers, chipboards & stamps from my own stash i created this canvas. 
Normally i always start a project with an idea in my mind but this one was completely free style. 



Thats the nice part of mixed media, just use whatever you can find on your desk and start playing around. 
I made several layers starting from paint, paper, gesso, modeling paste, sprays etc...



Thank you for passing by and have a great day!

Life is Beautiful with Cynthia!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

 Hi  all my friends from FD !!!!

Today I am so excited to share my page using  this month's kit; "Summer's End." 
This kit is  gorgeous, so many wonderful papers and all the embellishments are gorgeous !!!!
I hope you enjoy my page and see so many details for you to use on your own page!!!
Create with love that´s it!!!
Hugs from BraziL



                                                   Life is Beautiful!!!!!!



              Life is Beautiful!!!!!!
STEP 1 
I started thinking about the topic of this page when I saw the beautiful colors of this collection of papers this month !!! 
I love the shades of blue, brown and beige with and decided to make handmade flowers that matched with the leaves of this collection. 
I love to wear lots of layers on all my pages and therefore use cardboard, gauze and papers from the same collection that match all shades of roles.


STEP 2



To start the first layer, I used cardboard and gauze which gives an air of lightness to my page. 
I love putting many papers from the same collection to form layers


STEP 3



I adore flowers for me are the most beautiful details of a page and delights me to make them. 
I made flowers in shades of blue and brown and some lighter to contrast with the leaves, I also used Petaloo flowers they are wonderful 
I made a yellow flower to contrast with the shades of blue which gave a very beautiful effect. 


STEP 4


After doing some flowers was time to embellish my page. 
There used everything that came in very beautiful KIT August. 
Used these bouquets that came in this kit. 
And I also used a small clock that gave a grace on the page, I made a loop and put it close, what has become very delicate.


STEP 5



Loved the shade of blue this kit and why the same role which I did the flowers. I also did a frame. 

This frame Enhanced Photo and under that used a chipboard frame that gave a very gracious air to page.


STEP 6






And when I thought I was already finished with the page. 
I decided to put a piece of paper that matched what had already used and used a Martha Stewart punch to form another layer. 

And also put the gorgeous detail that came in this month's kit !!Make sure you stop by the Frosted Design Store for this kit and more fantastic products. Thanks for stopping by, your kind comments always make me so happy!!!!!


Thanks again!!!!!

The Deconstructed Layout with Anita!

Monday, August 25, 2014


Hi everyone, it's Anita here today to share another Deconstructed Layout with you.

I am so loving the Capture The Moment Kit from Frosted Designs- I have made several layouts with it now and every single one looks different! Be sure to get one while they last. 


Today I want to talk about using a LOT of the same color, without overwhelming your layout with it. 
You CAN do it!
Here is a look at my layout. Of course, I had to have some pink on it. I used Prima papers from the Capture The Moment kit, and Princess Collection Kit.
This is my second layer from the bottom, and I love the pattern, but wanted more color. So after I punched the edges, I inked it- and I mean I really inked it! The ink extends about 2- 2.5" in from the edge. 
I started with the lightest color of ink I wanted to use, then added a darker color of ink
 just along the edge of the paper.
Next up, I used my VersaMark  around one side at a time, and added a bit of texture with Lindy's Stamp Gang Hibiscus Rose Orange Embossing Powder.
I also used Lindy's on my Blue Fern Studio's Chippie- this time Golden Angel Wings. You can see on the upper layer of paper, just under the chipboard, I stamped using the Heart Flourish Splash stamp and an ink one shade darker.  I added the small burlap flowers to the centers of a couple of larger flowers for the corners.
 I added more flowers, butterfly and brad, all included in the Capture the Moments kit, to the lower corner.
I also added some faux stitching with my Signo White pen.
This photo illustrates how I wanted to use my color how it all came together. For the most part my layout is a monotone, mainly PINK. However, I separated each layer of pink with a NEUTRAL. Starting from the corner there is;
1. The background page
2. the PINK punched page
3. the neutral flower die-cut and chipboard
4. the PINK edge of the punched paper
5. the white portion of the punched paper
6. the PINK cardstock
7. the photo
So, the moral of our story is this:
if you want to use one color in abundance, be sure to place it between layers of neutral colors
and it will be fabulous!
I hope you give this a try, and I would love to see how it turns out!
