Waves of fun

Hello everyone !

I'm here today to show a little step-by-step. How about a summer layout ?

Here is what I used  :

-         Blue paper (Scrapabilities)
-         Pink paper (The Paper Studio)
-         White cardstock
-         Two green washi tapes (one large, one small)
-         Faber-Castell artist pen Big Brush in skyblue and cobalt green
-         Border acrylic stamp (Inkadinkado)
-         Faber-Castell white Gelato
-         White ink (Colorbox)
-         White acrylic paint
-         White gel pen (Sakkura)
-         4 corners (Jolee’s Boutique)
-         turquoise glitter gel pen (optional)
-         adhesives (Glossy accent by Ranger, Scotch ATG)

  1. Make a square with the large green washi tape, ¼” apart from the edges.
  2. Tear the edges of the pink paper to have approx. a 11”x11” square. Place it over the washi square.
  3. Using the big brush pen cobalt green and skyblue, ink the border stamp, and stamp below the edges of the pink square.

  1. Make a square at the bottom of the stamped border with the small green washi tape. Add the white corners.Write your journaling on the washi tape with a white gel pen.

  1. Mark lightly the place of your picture with a pen. Draw intricate spirals around with a white gelato. Ink in white the spirals (you can use your fingertip for a more precise application). Spray few small drops of white paint inside the square of green washi.

  1. Distress the edges of your picture (scissors or distress tool). Place it in the center of your page.
  2. Place your title above and under the picture. I drew mine on white paper with a turquoise glitter gel pen and the “Art Brewery” font using SCAL and a die-cutting machine, but you can use any pre-made alphabet.
  3. Nothing more. You’re done.

Feeling Sketchy inspiration post

Hello everybody !

I'm here today to share a little trick for the Feeling Sketchy blog. Here is what you will need :

Yep, just some pieces of paper and glossy accents. Ok joking. You will also need beads, crystals, glitter, laces. Just punch several small circles, adhere what ever you like on it and cover generously with glossy accents, enough to make a big bubble of glue. It does take a lot to dry. You could see the result above. On the left corner, with glitter (added before the glossy for the pink ones, and after for the dark green one), beads on the right, and laces at the bottom) :

I use them as flower centers or as small embellishments on my layout.

I made a video, it's in French but I add english caption for you...

See you for another crafty project soon !

Color your bling !

Hello !

Here today to share (with you and the readers of the Color-Me-Scrappy blog) a super quick video about matching your crystal with your project :

I didn't have the right color for the match box I made for the G45 DT call, so I used this trick. It worked perfectly with black too...

See you soon for another project !

Prima Marketing April challenge

Bonjour !

For today's layout, I used the last sketch of the Prima's blog :

BAP april 2014 mani

and ended up with this :

I play with my new Prima stencils. One with red distress ink over gesso on the recollections paper, the other one with blue glitter gel pen. Yes, the blue flowers came from a stencil... I use the same pen to decorate the flower (Prima Marketing). Inkadinkado stamp for the LOVE banner, Scrapabilities for the blue glitter frame, and Melody Rossy glitter overlays. A DCWV sticker take place of my journaling inside the pink overlay.

So let me count. I got  :
- the stichting
- the roundish patterns
- 3 rectangles
- stamps
- title on one side.

Sure doesn't look like the sketch, but I did use it... Are you gonna play too ?
