Winter Layout Class

Hey everyone. Here's a winter layout using We R Memory Keeper's 'Winter Frost' collection. I just love the colors!! The hexagons were cut using Spellbinder dies. The large snowflake was cut from chipboard painted with gesso and then covered with tissue paper. I then colored it with distress stain, more gesso and then sprinkled some dry glitter. The die used to cut the snowflake was from Sizzix. WOW embossing powder and dylusions spray also make an appearance.

This was another class taught at Shabby Shutters and was inspired from a PageMaps sketch. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.


Shabby Shutter's March Sketch Challenge

 Hey everyone. Here's the layout I came up with for the March Sketch Challenge at Shabby Shutters. I used My Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found 3 Ruby' collection. The stickers were also from that collection. I added some washi tape, brads, bling, splatters and stitching for good measure. Love how it turned out!!!

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.


Snowflake Layout

Hey everyone. Here's a wintery layout using some of Bobunny's Powder Mountain collection. The splatters were made by brushing some water on a distress stain dabber and smacking it onto the paper. Very cool technique I must say!!! Saw it on a 30 second youtube video. The snowflakes were made by layering 4 snowflake punches and then covering them with a thin coat of gesso. I then stamped an image in the gesso and sprinked on some dry glitter. Another very cool technique. Just love the snowflakes that this makes!!! Here's a close up.

Kinda hard to see the detail but believe me when I say they are super cute!!! The inspiration for this layout was a Creative Scrappers sketch. It was a class taught at Shabby Shutters. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
