Weekend by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !  Spring is here and I think this kit contains the best colors to make beautiful layouts of Spring or sunny Summer days!!!!

This one was pretty simple to make because I loved the background so much  that I wanted to hide little as possible.  The flower corner was my first inspiration.  I took a very delicate stencil from my stash that has small flowers just to create a bit of texture.  I took some Pink watercolor to add color but not a lot.  I used the 12×12 paper that had cut outs plus the Ephemeras (clocks and butterflies) for embellishments.  I used one of the chipboards from Creative Embellishments and finished with a badge, flowers and also the Nuvo Pink to make dots.

Here are some close-ups :

Ensemble by Annie Carignan

Hello !

Here is another layout made with the Scrapbook Kit for April !  I really had fun with it because I have made such different projects with the same kit ! Possibilities are endless !

My inspiration for this one came from the Pink flowers at the bottom of this paper.  I knew I wanted Fuchsia  but I had to change the color of the flowers. I took the gold spray from the kit and used it on the flowers.  I decided to add more flowers from my stash to add more color.  I used some watercolour and the spray also all around the layout.

I really love how it turned out with the chipboard and the embellishments.  Here are some close-ups :

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Prima Marketing  texture paste and this cute 4×4 canvas. Also included is a resin frame, black gesso and the brand new Finnabair rice paper sheets.

Here is the kit:

I love the texture paste, and I have worked with them  before. This was a fun, but messy project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I added some flowers, resin and lace from my stash.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the texture paste:

Cards from Annie

Hello everyone !  Today I am sharing my second project for this month, this time with the Cards Tags and more Kit which is filled with beautiful products from Graphic 45, Creative Embellishments and Scrappy cat.  If you want all the details of the kit you can find it at the end of this post.

 

I made 3 cards for this project, all 8×4 approximately.  I used 3 different background papers and 3 other papers on top.  I used the cute tags and pockets to add embellishments to the card along with the beautiful Red flowers.  I painted the  music notes with the gray ink from the Scrapbook Kit.  The sentiments are from my stash.  On each flower I used the glitter glue included in the kit, I think it gives great texture.

 

Here are some close-ups :

Crafty stuff by Annie

Hello everyone !

 

Here I am today sharing another project I made with this month’s beautiful Cards and more kit with gorgeous papers and Ephemeras from LemonCraft and also Prima flowers and Creative Embellishments chipboards.

I had this wood box from the Scrapbook Kit and it gave me an idea for my daughter’s bedroom which is exactly those colors.  I thought she can use this as a wall decor and if she wants, she can even use it for her Shopkins !

 

I cut out some peaces from the 6×6 paper kit and adhered them in each little box. I added some Ephemeras, chipboard, flowers and badges.  Pretty easy right ? Creativity is everywhere, you just need to think outside the box !

Your Story Matters Mixed Media Project with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a project I made using the March Mixed Media Kit. These AB Studio large chipboard pieces are amazing! I think I’m going to need all of them! Here’s what I came up with:

One of the most impressive things about the large chipboard is it’s durability! I started out with sprinkling the Lindy mica powders from the kit in a random fashion, starting with the light colors and then using the darker ones all over the chipboard, leaving some parts without any. Then I sprayed the whole piece with water, saturating some sections, and not so much in other parts to create a marbled effect. I kept playing with this technique until I got the result I wanted, which resembles a distressed, somewhat patina metal like appearance.

The kit comes with several AB Studio cut out sheets, so I cut several of the images- navy map, music sheets, and an old picture, and assembled them for my focal point of the project.

Here you can see how I let the concentrated part of the micas stay somewhat dry, giving the chipboard a bit of texture.

I added the Prima Marketing velvet charms from the kit to the flower cluster. I used some blue wax paste to the Prima copper flowers to blend into the project. Some items on this project are from my stash- the metal pieces and the lace.

Lastly, I added more of the Prima velvet charms to some jump rings and attached them to hang at the bottom of the project.

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Lindy’s magical shakers and this amazing 12×12 chipboard circle from AB Studios. Also includes are several ephemera sheets for cut outs and a few other embellishments.

Here is the kit:

I love Lindy’s sprays, and I have worked with the magicals before. This was a fun project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I prime the chipboard piece before I used the magicals. I also used some copper and clear crackle paste (from my stash) on it prior to adding the magicals.

For the ephemera, I used lots of foam tape to give the layers some dimension. The same with the flowers and butterflies. The lace doilies are from the March Scrapbook kit.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the Lindy’s magicals:

“Love” Watercolor Panel with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a project I made with items from the scrapbook and mixed media kits. This is a small watercolor panel from my stash.

I started out by adding some stenciling, which I let dry completely, then sprayed with water, and while still wet, I added some of the blue Prima Marketing liquid watercolor. The panel was very wet, so I picked up the excess moisture with a paper towel, and hit it with a heat gun.

Next, I painted the Creative Embellishments heart chipboard pieces with  white gesso, then added the red liquid watercolor. Once dry, I added the black liquid watercolor to the panel and chipboard pieces, then quickly wiped it off with a paper towel to get a grungy, weathered result.

In this closeup you can see how well adding the black liquid watercolors created the distressed tones.

Next, I added the chipboard, as well as the rest of the embellishments, all from the kit except the clip. Lastly, I added some of the Prima Marketing metallique wax in turquoise satin to the entire piece.
