love and happy.

Lets get this party started with a little bit of love for the ‘Sirena’ stamp and a fun candid picture form a fun weekend with our niece! I have to start by saying this is my favourite stamp from the last release and I don’t think I would be able to stop using it!!! So she will be my girl for this one:) So head to your stash, pick up a few fave supplies and lets get creating!!

Step 1

BGSeptPic1
Once deciding where I would place my main image, I decided where my stamp would be placed. (they would go in the top left section of the layout.) So that’s exactly where I started, with a stamped image of ‘Sirena”. (tip: make sure to use a stamp pad with ink that won’t react with whatever sprays you use to maintain a crisp clean image)

I applied Golden fibre paste through a stencil peeking out around where my photo would be, and overlapping a bit of of the stamped image. I also applied some stencilling in the bottom right corner as well. Allow to air dry.

Select 3 co-ordinating spray colors and unscrew their tops off. Spray the stencilled areas with water. While the page is still wet use the ‘straw’ part of the sprayer and drag it along the edged of the paper and raised stencil areas. Dip the straw into the spray as much as needed to add more color. I made sure to apply all three colors together, while everything is still wet. I tilted the paper to allow for some beautiful drips. This also allows them to slightly blend together.

Step 2

To add a few details and enhance the stencilling from the previous step I messy sketched around the shapes with a permanent thin sharpie pen. I really love the look of a messy outline look!!

Behind where the focal point/photo will be I arranges some thread to peek out from behind the photo.

Step 3

Next up, arrange all of the goodies I have pulled out. These embellishments were super simple but effective to the layout and photo:)

I started with an assortment of white flowers. I sprayed then with the same spray colors from step 1.

A few tags, some scrap holes I cut off of watercolour paper pads and some flowers and I was set! I had a few leftover project life cards with the perfect sentiments for this layout!!

So the layering started, I made sure to arrange everything and generally lay it out before adhering anything down to make sure it looked good before making it permanent.

Once all of the embellies are stuck down and dry, I places a piece of scrap paper over my photo and took the same colors from Step 1 and splattered them over the stencilled areas… Then to tie it all together I added a few splatters of white gesso:)

And a few close ups!!!

Cherish, Mixed Media Layout

There are times in your life that you realize that sometimes you don’t cherish the moments you should… Recently a beautiful woman had a huge loss in her life and it made me realise that I wasn’t taking people in my life for granted but maybe I just wasn’t cherishing moments like I should. that I should live each moment as it is and not think so far ahead. enjoy the now.

with that being said, my brother is one of those people, I don’t take him for granted. I know exactly how luck I am and how much I cherish the relationship we now have as adults. But, I have never documented out moment or out relationship, so what better time then now!! as kids we were your typical siblings, we fought, never saw eye to eye and couldn’t stand each other! now as adults when we aren’t busy we are together doing something even if its just hanging out!

This moment is probably one my fav moments capture! we take a bootcamp together and this year it landed on Halloween so naturally we had to dress up!! I love this picture it makes me smile and makes me happy and makes me realize how fricken lucky I am!!

anyways that’s my inspiration for this layout, we are all inspired by something… what inspires you??

I’m A Dreamer

LW DT photo

Today i am bringing you a little taste of the tutorial that is up today on the Limor Webber DT blog.

I created this layout with an open mind and open heart. I wanted to create a tone of simple yet effective layers! sometimes we add layer and layers and layers but don’t think how effective they will be all together… What happens to be is i dream of layouts… I dream of the layers… i dream of the process. And I’m not always sleeping when it happens! I’m an avid daydreamer! I stare off into space from time to time and what i am doing 99% of the time is dreaming up new ideas and new pretty things! some people keep dream journals and diaries, I keep idea book and an application on my phone to document all the ideas that flow through my head faster then I can write!

Anyways, rambling is now over! here is a look at the full layout!

My Boy:)

Hey my lovelies, Sherry here with another fab, fun way to use the ever amazing Bloom Girl (Boy) stamps! Today I am turning Quentin into a metallic element in my layout background. Sometimes we feel the stamps need to be in the forefront of everything we use them in, but they in fact add an amazing layer into backgrounds as well.

First off here’s a look at the full project we will be creating today! For a full list of supplies head on over to the Bloom Girl blog. You will also find a ton of beautiful inspiration, amazing projects and some gosh darn fab ladies!!

Now, pull out all your goodies and create along with me!!

Knowing i wanted a pretty neutral colour scheme for the base of this project i selected pattern paper accordingly and started with my first two layers. First I applied Prima fluid chalk ink through the Ricket stencil (MY FAV) to the are my photos will be places and a little in the opposite corner to create balance. Then using a kit that turns stamped images into metallics I stamped Quentin so that he would peek out from behind my photos. (Remember I don’t want him in the forefront, he is in the background of this layout!)

 And a few close ups so you can see the yummy metallicy, goodness!

I laid my photos where I would want them to be and traced lightly around them to mark where my photos would end up. Using the ‘sweet tea’ stencil i sprayed Bloom spray through the large open section of the stencil. (make sure to cover up the intricate side to avoid spray going through it) allow to dry. Then using molding paste apply it though the intricate side onto the sprayed silhouette. Allow to dry.

I wrapped cream colored piece of string around my hand making messy circles. I adhered these so they would peek out from behind my photos.

I took a gear mask and applied molding paste around Quentin like a halo, and a little bit in the bottom right corner just for a bit of fun! (the bottm right corner will also be the home for the title!) Once the paste if dry i lightly rubbed brown ink over the image to make it not so stark against the background.

Now the fun part!!! I took bit and pieces that were hanging out on my desk and used them as backgrounds for my photos! Keeping in mind where my photos will be I arranged all of goodies (mechanicals, Bloom Girl metal flowers and paper flowers) to peek out and enhance my layout.(HINT: I laid all these out before adhering them so I knew they would suit what I wanted and fill in the spaces I needed.) Once these are set and dry I used micro beads in small random spaces around the photos and dragged out from the top and bottom! Once all is dry and set, I dry brushed white gesso over the embellishments. Allow to dry.

Not lets add some color!!! With a fluffy brush I sprinkled my first of three Magical color in the desired areas and spray with water to active, and allow to dry. Then redo this same thing with the next two colors. once they are all dry i reapplied the colors until they reached the desired color that i loved!!

And a few close ups of this deliciousness!
