Layout tutorial with Tracey

Tracey is sadly leaving us due to work commitments. We wish her all the best and look forward to her returning with her awesome creativeness. Thank you Tracey you will be missed xxx

Step by step for November Layout

I decided I would colour my texture paste to match the mood board colours and while I was at it I would sprinkle in some glitter.


I got out a palette and a small amount of texture paste. Put a small amount of the colour acrylic paint and matching glitter.
Mix it all around and put it on my layout over a template.
Repeat for all colour and them let the paste dry.




I must omit the glitter shows up best in the darker colours.


I have used tissue paper, a canvas square for the photo mat and of cause some feathers from the mood board inspiration to dress the page up.


Thank you for looking.
Happy crafting.
Tracey

Wedding Embelishment tutorial with Lisa

Hey there!
Lisa here today to share a quick and easy embellishment to make. These are perfect to add to a scrapbook page, a card or a gift.


Start by cutting a 1 1/2" x 12" strip of patterned paper:


Using a score board, score ever 1/4":


Add a thin strip of glue. I used ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever:


Once it dried clear, I used ScraPerfect's Foil Transfer, placed it over the glue and rubbed:


This is what it looked like:



Begin at one end and accordion fold the entire strip:


Add glue to one end and glue to the other:


This is what it looks like. add glue to a scrap piece of paper. I used a scalloped punched circle:


Flatten the accordion piece on top of the circle and hold until dry:


Embellish, I used Paper House Productions paper and a 3D Sticker on mine along with some tangled thread and stickpins.

Here is a side view:


This is a great way to use up scraps and miscellaneous embellishments!
Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Beautiful Banner tutorial with Luciana

Hi friends, Luciana here again!
Today I want to show a banner I made to put in my studio.
I was inspired by our beautiful mood board to create a positive and simple message.
I used a chipboard and kraft base to create the banner. And embellished with the colors of the mood board! A and there was not even a bird feather!
It's a simple banner that can be used to decorate your party or home!
Let's start?

1 - Separate a chipboard and kraft board to scratch your flag! 
I make the template for one or more banners.
 2 - Scratch the mold on decorated or solid paper!
 3 - Soak the edges of the banner with white acrylic paint or gesso.
 4 - Apply cheesecloth to the edges of the banner.
 5 - Distressed the paper.

 6 -  Decorate with flowers, write your message, etc.
 Your banner is ready for your party or decorate your home!

 Material used: Prima Flowers Garden Fable Sprout #580803, Coffee Break #578534, 
heavy gesso Finnabair, chipboard banner, fabric lace,
 alphabet stickers, gauze. metal piece.
Thank you all for coming here!
