Perfection (2Crafty Chipboard)

Hi there,

I'm sharing with you today my second layout for 2Crafty this month. It is called Perfection. Here it is.

I used roughly the same sketch for this second layout, but I went a bit crazy with the colors. I used Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint Metallique Emerald Green (963170), Metallique Ancient Coin (963057) and Metallique Green Olive (963163) to create my background.

I began with the Retro Panel. I cut it in 3 pieces and embossed them with a black glittery embossing powder. I then rubbed some Art Alchemy waxes (Art Alchemy Metallic Wax Vintage Gold (963958) Art Alchemy Antique Brillance Lucky Emerald (964344)) on the edges.

Over my picture, I placed the beautiful Ornate Dragonfly. I embossed it with a dark blue powder, and then, rubbed some waxes to add to the old finish.

 I treated my title, the word Perfection, the same way.

I embossed the Weeping Vine in gold embossing powder. I then cut it apart and placed pieces here and there on my layout.

I embellished it with Prima flowers.

Enjoy the Journey (2Crafty Chipboard)

Dear crafty friends,
I'm here today to share one of my layouts for 2Crafty this month.It's called Enjoy the Journey. Here it is.

My main inspiration came from the Decorative Rod Set 2 piece I chose. I painted it black and partially covered it with bronze and dark teal embossing powder. I glued it in the middle of my layout, vertically.

The shine I got on that piece is gorgeous!

I decided to use a few of the 6" Clock Face Frames here and there on my layout. I embossed them in bronze embossing powder.

For my title piece, I chose the Enjoy the Journey piece.

I embossed it with the same bronze and dark teal powders I use all through my layout.

I used the Soul paper from 7 Dots Studio's collection called Fortune Teller.

I spread black modeling paste through the Soulmates Squares Stencil (7 Dots Studio) and sprinkled some embossing powder before I used my heat tool to dry and make it melt.

I also used 6x12 Fortune Teller Word Stickers and 12x12 Tags, along with Hazy Days Clear Stamps, Dreamscapes Clear Stamps and Thoughts Keeper Clear Stamps.

Happy (Guest Designer for Accent Scrapbooking)

Dear crafty friends,

I finally get to share my first layout for Accent Scrapbooking. Here it is.

I created it based on the beautiful moodboard for August:

I was inspired, of course, by the colors, but also by the gold glitter arrow, by the black and white stripes and by the soft and romantic feeling of the board.

I used one of the Grunge 1" badges on the right side of my picture, amongst my Prima flowers.

On the bottom left corner of my picture, I used two badges. The one with an arrow comes from the White Gold Metallic set, and the striped one comes from the Black and White set

I also used some 2Crafty Chipboards on the layout, to embellish everything.

I hope you like my first share for Accent Scrapbooking. Come again in one week to see another layout.

Love (Prima Marketing)

Dear crafty friends,

Today, I'm sharing my very first layout for Prima Marketing.

One of my all time favorite products from Prima, after the gorgeous flowers, is the Crochet Doily Die. I just love the texture it adds to every layout. 

I often use a coordinating paper (in this case, from the Vintage Emporium collection) to cut my dies, to be sure it goes well with the rest of the layout. 

I also used two of the Forest Leaves dies to add behind my flowers. 

I love the vintage feeling of this layout. 

I also used two Accent Scrapbooking badges on this layout. The one shown above is from the Badges 1" - Mushrooms set

This one is from the Badge 1" - Forest Animals set

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
