LOVE by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !!

I am sharing today a layout made with January’s Scrapbook Kit. It is beautiful and so romantic, I just loved playing with it !  There are so many possibilities with this kit ! Layouts, cards, mini-albums, Project Life, whatever you want.

Here is a little walk through of my background process : As you can see, I chose a flower stencil with paste but any stencil can do the trick and you  can use any paste, light, medium, heavy, clear or white, doesn’t matter : as long as you add texture.

I used my watercolors with water to add color and splashes. As you can see on the photo, I cut out some flowers from some of the papers.  Big flowers on a paper can sometimes be overwhelming for some people, but don’t be scared to cut them out to use them as an embellishment.  That is what I did by adding them to the layout with 3D foams under to add thickness.

I also like to add splashes of White Gesso mixed with water.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

I created tags with papers in the kit :

Bonheur by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! Here I am today with a layout made with this month’s sketch.

Here is a photo of my son very captivated by what Santa is saying to him, even if he was older and did not want to sit on his lap !! I thought these colors went perfectly with this kit. I just love the flowers Poinsettia Kiss from Prima, they go perfectly with the Paper Rose Blue flowers.

I first put a coat of Clear Gesso on the background then I used the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit. I used some gray watercolour from my stash. I used a stamp from my stash with Red ink as a repeat to the flowers and the Red title bonheur.

On the Holly and Berry frame from Creative Embellishments, I put a coat of gel and used the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit, I also could have embossed but the color was perfect. I put some of the pearls included in the kit and the Silver leaves.

Believe by Annie Carignan

Here is my project that I created with the Mixed Media Kit. I loved doing it ! So much that I put it in my living room for decoration this year.

When I received this kit I thought about it all week. I had an all day crop and I was waiting until then to start working on it. By then I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this project.

This is a souvenir of a magical moment that happened when we were walking in the Christmas Market. It was snowing and all of a sudden, we heard Tinkle Bells. Santa Claus was walking outside and came to see the kids, they were so surprised and speechless !! Here they are listening to him speaking. I will never forget that moment !

In the kit there were 3 paint colours : Red, Green and Linen. I used the Linen paint for the base coat. I used the Holly mini stencil on the surface with some Modeling Paste from my stash. One everything was dry I started to play with the Red and the Green mixed with a little bit of water to create watercolour. I added some splashes of paint to pop the colors. The poinsettias were really flashy so I decided to tone them down a little with the Green paint for the pine and with Red for the flowers. I put White Gesso on the ornaments and added Antique Silver Art Sugar. As a finishing touch, I took some Snow I had in my stash and put it on the pines and the poinsettias. I embossed the wood title Believe with Embossing Powder from my stash.

Noel by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! I am presenting today another layout made with the December Scrapbook Kit. 

For this layout I used a few mediums included in the Mixed Media kit but you can use just about any products you have at home to get the same results 🙂  I used a stencil with Magic Wax from Prima on the background but Modeling Paste would do the trick just as well.  I cut out different images from the Maja Design paper collection to put behind the photo.  I also used a snowflake punch from my stash and some wood snowflakes too.  

As I was cutting the edges of the papers I noticed that they could be used later.  I started to roll them like  I always do before getting rid of them and then I thought to myself : why not use them as decorations ? You can see that I used a few on my page 🙂

Of course I put those beautiful Silver blue flowers  that went perfectly with that collection and also added some “snow” here and there.  The title  Noel is something I had in my stash but I didn’t like the color so I put some gel on it and put the Art Sugar from Prima included in the Mixed Media kit.

15th Anniversary from Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!! December kit is here and I am super excited to share my creations for this month.  December is a special month for us because first of all, my husband and I met in December, there is Christmas of course AND my daughter was born in December.

This background paper reminded me of our wedding because we got married in the Winter but also because my dress and the groom’s accessories had light blue in them.  This was the perfect kit for Winter photos :). We will celebrate our 15th Anniversary in January so why not do a layout about that day 🙂

This is a pretty simple layout where I did not use a lot of mediums except some splashes of White Gesso on the background and some gel to fix the snow and the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit.

I used different layers of paper behind the photo and lots of Pearls.  I used the Holly and Berry Border from Creative Embellishments that I painted White.  I just love the little Shovel !!!

I loved adding the Art Sugar everywhere, I think it adds great texture and color to the layout.

November kit 4th reveal by Annie Carignan

 

Hello everyone ! I am sharing today my fourth project for this month.  The focus on this layout is the beautiful resin frame from Prima which is included in the Mixed Media kit.

I coated some clear Gesso on this White 12×12 cardstock. Then I used stencil from the mixed media and Modeling Paste.  I stamped the background with ABStudio stamp and put some color with aquarelle paint from my stash.

I cut different peaces of flowers, leaves and clocks from what I had left over from the scrapbook kit and added them under the photo as well as peaces of chipboard that I painted white.

I used some of the Finnabair glaze on the frame and art stones to create texture.

“Faire des folies” with Annie Carignan

Hello again everyone !

I am sharing today another layout that I made with beautiful November Scrapbook Kit where we had ABStudio gorgeous products, 49 and Market and Prima flowers along with great chipboards from Creative Embellishments.

For this layout I wanted to work with the feathers, which are not something I normally use so this was a little bit of a challenge for me because I never know where to put them !  So I had this idea of using all of them so they would be the focus of my page.

First thing I did was  gesso the background, then I cut little peaces of paper for the top and the bottom that I adhered making a triangle directed to the center and reaching the bottom. I used AB Studio stencil with Paste.  I took the feathers and adhered them from the top to the center, and from the bottom to the center also. I painted them with white gesso.  I put some  Icing Paste to give color just a little and added   the trim lace on top and bottom.  I finished by adding flowers, tags, bird and Art Stones.

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.

This Place

Hello everyone ! so happy to share new creations with brand new November kit ! Today I am sharing a layout made with the Scrapbook kit and a few things from the MM kit.   This paper is so beautiful with the 2 big butterflies that I didn’t want to hide them.  That is why I tried to keep it simple.  On the background I used the stamp from AB Studio and painted them with Watercolor from my stash.  I chose colors that matched my photo.  The die cut flowers you see behind the photo were made with a friend’s die cut I tried on my scrapbook weekend. I cut the tag from one of the AB Studio papers.  I added some flowers and Art Stones.

Here are some close-ups :

Memories by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! I am sharing today another layout with October Scrapbook Kit. I don’t use dark backgrounds very often so this was a challenge for me ! I think it turned out pretty well 🙂 See below my photo tutorial :

First thing I always do is put a coat of clear gesso on the surface.

The paper from 13@rts had a beautiful texture and I wanted to add to it so I used a wood veneer stencil from my stash with paste.

Then I added some Pink spray also from my stash and added a little water.

I used a paper from the Prima Misty Rose collection and cut out some die-cuts and a frame included in a Prima flower pack also.  Finished off with lace and flowers and a wood title from 13@arts.

Here are some close-ups :
