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 ?

"Like Father Like Daughter" layout

Hello !

I've been looking at my old pictures recently and decided to print some of them for scrapbooking. I found this cute picture of my daughter and my husband in Vegas. They look so alike both, the title couldn't be different.

I scraplift a layout from the "Scrap Lifting" blog (they have a DT call and I do like scraplift layout...).

The background paper is a white paper cover with pink roses from the Modern Bouquet papers pad (Recollections). I first inked over a flourish mask (blue distress ink and mask by Tim Holtz), then add white Gesso with a spatula and over a Tim Holtz stencil (faded dots). After spraying some Smooch ink, I used a Prima Marketing stencil with modeling paste with blue paint. I distress with edge with scissors before adhering it to a blue Bella Blvd paper with some laces (Hobby Lobby).
I did layered papers (DCWV, Recollections) distressed with Gesso, stamps and scissors, add embellishments (Recollections, Making Memories) and flowers (Prima Marketing, I Am roses), as well as my lovely butterflies from Dubai and home made embellishments (clay with Martha Stewart mold).
Title cut from DCWV paper with an electronic cutter.

Love the result, hope you like it too.
See ya !
