Choose To Shine

Hey there
Today I am sharing a quick and easy Scrapbook Page using the colours from the
September color challenge from Lindys!

This color set was a little challenging for me but the new 7Dots paper was the perfect match and I teamed it with some Imaginarium Designs Chipboard that I could customise to suit!

The paper has a little touch of Blue in it so I wanted to make that pop by adding some Delphinium Turquoise but the Turquoise by itself would be too strong so I added layers under it first.

I started with a coat of clear gesso then once dry, brushed on some Orange Creamsicle. Once dry, I added some Golden Doubloons and allowed it to dry in puddles.P1012228
I love that shimmer ... just divine.
Next I added some splatters ... starting with Golden Doubloons then Sandra Dee Sepia and Delphinium Turquoise. It's important to dry each color in between so that they sit as separate colors and not meld together.


I have created a short process video that you can view here.

Here are a few close ups for you .

Stencil Girl + Gel Press = Awesome

Hey there!
In the last post I showed you the first of 2 projects that I have created as part of the 
Stencil Girl Stencil Club for November.

I have been a member of the Stencil Girl Club for a bit over a year or so now and I love it!
You can find the link here ... STENCIL CLUB

I got totally carried away with the November set designed by Nathalie Kalbach 
and created a Gel Press Mini book as well!

Snap Shots – Mini Album

I love my Gel Press and creating fun little mini albums. 
This stencil set was ideal for a bright mini album featuring some super funny photos from a dinner party we had a little while ago.

I used a simple combination of cool colours and lots of different papers for a great effect! 
This stencil set works fantastic for layering  … in fact I found it really hard to stop!

I have also created a You Tube Tutorial for this project

Here are the detailed images of my Mini Album.

Stencil Club - Voices Guest Designer for November

I have been a member of the Stencil Girl Club for a bit over a year or so now and I love it!
You can find the link here ... STENCIL CLUB

I have been fortunate enough to be asked to create for the November and December release of the Stencil Club stencils and they are just awesome!

I totally got carried away in November and created 2 projects!
Here is  the first one with a few simple steps!

Together – Scrapbook Layout

I love the shapes in this stencil set and thought it would be great to use on a layout!
I started with Modelling Paste through the stencil then once dry, I really drowned the cardstock in Moon Shadow Mists from Lindys Stamp Gang in Treasure Island Aqua, Tawny Turquoise & Buccaneer Bay Blue.

Once dry, that gorgeous shimmer came out. 
I trimmed the cardstock down to be more of a feature panel, framed it with an old dress pattern the mounted it to black cardstock. 

 Before I stuck it on, I used Black Soot Distress Oxide with a blending tool through the stencil to create a really cool finish.

Here are a few close ups of the page!

Tomorrow I will share the second project that I created with the November Set!

Thanks for stopping by!
