Joyous Winterdays Layout with Rae

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing my layout that I made using our December sketch, created by Kim. How beautiful is this?

The blue Maja Design papers were perfect for this wintery sketch. Here’s my take on it:

I started out by adding some stenciling with some glittery paste in places where it would peek out from under the design.

I used some chipboard (chipboard frame and snowflakes) from my stash that I embossed using some silvery blue embossing powder. I added some of the Kaisercraft blue pearls from the kit.

I added some flowers: the Prima Marketing silver flowers and leaves from the kit, and some random blue flowers from my stash. I added some white gesso to soften the flowers and give them a snowy look.

To follow the design of the sketch, I added some snowflake die cuts the the edges of the paper and under the clusters.

Lastly, I added the little shovel and a title that came from one of the bottom strips of the Maja Design Papers. I added a little more glitter paste to the shove to look like snow.

We hope you play along with us this month’s challenge. We love it when you use the kit, but the challenge is open to EVERYONE, so you can use whatever supplies you have. The challenge runs until Dec 31st! Details here: in our Facebook group.

November Moodboard by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !! Have you seen this month’s Moodboard ? It is gorgeous and I created a layout with the Mixed Media kit and parts of the Scrapbook kit.

It took me a while to decide how I was going to place my 3 circles (Embroidery Hoops) Here is how it ended up.  I painted all 3 with White Gesso and used AB Studio’s stencil from the Scrapbook kit on the surface.  I mixed Finnabair’s Icing Paste with water and put some on the 3 circles. I then added some texture with AB Studio’s rubber stamp.  When everything was done I felt it needed something more, that is why I put the circles on a background paper where I used the Prima stencil with the Icing Paste.

Here you can see I painted the metal gears and the key chipboard with White Gesso and added beautiful flowers.  I finished off with Arts Stones. The small white words and the round title are from my stash.

 

 

from the Mixed Media Kit:

Prima – Icing Paste Rose Gold

Prima – Art Stones

Prima – Stencil Flourish

Prima – Love Story Flowers Charlize

Tres Jolie – Embroidery Hoop 3”

Tres Jolie – Embroidery Hoop 5”

Tres Jolie – Embroidery Hoop 7”

 

from the Scrapbook Kit contents:

49 & Market Seaside Blooms – Natural Blush

Creative Embellishments Chipboard – Keys

Prima Vintage Trinkets – Clocks

Mood board Challenge layout with Ginny

Hello all, its Ginny here with you today,

Its a brand new month and a brand new kit from Tres Jolie Kits!
Today I am sharing a project created with the November Scrapbook kit.
This kit has beautiful papers from AB Studios and some gorgeous embellishments to compliment them!

My first project is created using the mood board, this months challenge.
Here is what I came up with…

Here is the mood board for this months challenge.

Here are a few close ups and details……

I kept to monochrome tones from the mood board. There were some perfect pieces in the embellishments for this layout. I loved keeping some of the embellishments in their raw state, it kept a natural feel that matched the wildness of the rocks in my photo.

 

I layered up 3 papers to create the background layers. Going from darkest on the outside to lightest for the miain background paper. This gives the layout a nice framed effect and makes the darker parts of the layout ‘pop.
These were all distressed.

I loved this string tied tube embellishment from the flower pack and wanted to base the main cluster with this feature. I drapped one of the flower peices over it to blend it into the page.
I didn’t add any products on the chipboard feathers, keeping them in their raw state, i loved the effect they gave!

My photo I backed on patterned paper with distressed edges. I then arranged the tags behind the photo. I tied some bakers twine to the tags.

I cut lengths of lace to layer down the sides of my photo.
I used the cute little flower stamp in the background with some toffee archival ink.
The keys I added last to finish the embellishment clusters off.

I used the metal clock peices, one in each embellishment cluster. One was slotted underneath my photo layers, which are propped up with foam pads to lift them of the page, and the other is placed on top of my photo layers.

Journey Layout with Rae

Hello crafty friends!

You have probably already seen our November kit reveal yesterday- isn’t it lovely? My heart skipped a beat when I saw the Aga Baraniak Dreamland papers! This kit is filled with so many beautiful embellishments as well. For my first layout, I based my layout on this mood board that is for our November challenge:

Here’s what I came up with:

I started with cutting out tags and some of the flower and leaf elements. Then I added a white wash to all of the paper elements with a mixture of white gesso and water.

In this closeup below, you can see how the whitewashing gave the papers an aged, muted look. I added some grommets and twine to the tags for added texture.

I added the clock and gears from the kit. The frame around the picture is from my stash- I gave it a light coat of pale green wax paste, then added some green artisan powder for a dimensional look.

The green and yellow flowers are from the kit, and I also added some light red and pink ones to give the peachy pink flowers I cut from the papers a bit of a pop.

The lace and gears are also from the kit and are nice small touches to the design of my layout.

Friends by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! We have a beautiful sketch this month and I am presenting a layout I made inspired by it.

 

Here is my take on the sketch :

First thing I did is applying clear Gesso on the surface because I knew I would be using lots of mediums.  Once everything was dry I used a stencil from my stash and put on both sides.  I used a lot of 13@rts Turquoise Mist on all the surface and also some Pink from my stash.  I cut out some peaces from “Their word for each other” Prima paper and the frame from the Prima flower pack to put under and around the photo.  I finished with flowers, wood peaces and title from 13@arts.

 

 

 

 

 

Material used :

 

  • Prima Marketing Misty Rose (Scented Love Letters)
  • Prima Marketing Misty Rose (The Memorable Floral Wall)
  • Prima Marketing Misty Rose (Scattered Dreams)
  • Prima Marketing Misty Rose (Their Words for Each Other)
  • 13@rts 12×12 Chipboard sheet
  • Prima Marketing Misty Rose Flowers
  • Prima Marketing Misty Rose Flowers
  • Lace leaf appliques (2)
  • 13@rts Turquoise Mist

 

Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday. This month is a layout sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Although this is a layout sketch, it can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a photo of dh and I on our anniversary this year. Man where did the past 24 yrs go? How about some close ups?

I started with a 2 sheets of the Prima paper. I cut the busier sheet and layered it on the light pink sheet of paper. I distressed the edges of the paper and did some light stenciling on the background.

I used the large trim piece and heat embossed it with lindy’s caesar’s gold embossing powder. I also layered paper and that cardboard from from the flower pack under my photo. I popped the layers up with foam tape.

I used some of the lace as a border and did a small cluster of the flowers. The title is from the 12×12 chipboard. I heat embossed that with the Lindy’s as well. I also added a small floral cluster in the bottom left hand corner.

Here is my little tip for the week: I have found that Lindy’s Caesar’s Gold embossing powder is a great match for this kit. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the sketch. Don’t forget to load your entries in the sketch challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

“Just You” Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday!

Today I am sharing a layout I made based on the October sketch created by Kim:

Isn’t that sketch lovely?

Here’s my interpretation of the sketch:

This 13 Arts “Rose Fields” paper is beyond gorgeous! I adore the different shades of pinks mixed with black and white with hints of green. You MUST get this kit if you are not a subscriber!

I started out with cutting down and distressing the “wood plank” paper so I could see a lot of the black of the first layer, as I wanted to add some elegant black accents and I wanted them to pop.

I added the white lace across the layout as the sketch has that design element, and then built my layers around the photo. I used some Prima Misty Rose paper for a mat, then added it to the gold frame that came in one of the Prima flower packs.I added some stamping to peek from under the right side of the photo, then added some of the chipboard flowers which I inked black.

On the left side of the cluster, I added some cut outs from the Rose Fields paper, and a doily die cut. I added another piece of chipboard that I inked black as well as the title, which I inked using a peachy colored chalk ink.  I just love how much chipboard came int he kit this month! Then I added my flowers and some butterflies from my stash.

Lastly, I added the cluster to the lower left side of the layout, keeping it simple, replicating the colors and elements from the top cluster- black chipboard swirl, flower, and another butterfly from my stash, from the Prima Misty Rose collection.
