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!!!

The thing I love the most about this layout is that it doesn’t need a ton of supplies to create!!!!

Freedom

Hey all my crafty friends, today i’m here with a splatter filled layout that I had a lot of fun making!

Sometimes we forget that many of our supplies have multiple uses and can be out to work on more projects! I also HATE cleaning up my workspace so i tend to get creative and use what’s already out!!  So pull out a few sprays and grab whatever embellies you have in your reach and create with me!! (for full supply list check out the Limor Webber Designs DT blog)

 Step ONE

I selected a soft neutral background, this is important so that my color sprays will stand out. Then I pulled out my variety of sprays and unscrewed all of the tops. I lightly spritzed the page with water to damped the page. (hint:this is important, if you dont pre-moisten the page the spray will instantly soak onto the fibres of the paper and not work as well for this technique)

Then, I dipped the ‘straw’ of one of the tops into its spray bottle and tapped the liquid onto the sections on the page where I wanted. ( I have already determined where my focal point would be)

I continued this between all of the colors will i felt there was enough on the page, then I picked up water with a dropper. And tapping the end of the dropper I created a bit of water splatters over the already placed, not yet dry, color splatters. Allow this to dry.

Step TWO

Next up are the AMAZING and NEW large industrial stamp set. Once I knew where my photo would be I ‘hung’ lamps and chains so the would peek out and show around the edges of the photo area. i did some in black ink and some in IndigoBlu Mega Flake metallics kit. (This starter kit is one of the most amazing little gems in my stash right now… if you don’t have one or haven’t heard of it you NEED to check it out! You’re welcome!)

Step THREE

Since I know where the location of my photo and embellishments are going to be situated, I spread glass beads along a few of the edges and on some of the corners. Once it was dry I used my finger to press clear gesso onto the clear beads. This will create a great base for my Magicals to stick to. Allow gesso to dry.

I pulled out a couple magicals that match (or closely match) the splatter colors and sprinkled them one at a time onto the clear beads and sprayed them with water. I kept layering these colors till they were just right!

Then with a bit of liquid glue I adhered some bundles of thread!

Step FOUR

I splattered a few tags with the same colors as the background and along with a few other embellies I had kicking around on my workspace I created a layered stack of deliciousness! I like to use pop dots when I create these layers and they will make things more dimensional and stand out.

Using the same Mega Flakes metallic kit I applied the word ‘Freedom’ to the bottom left corner.

Step FIVE

I found that the word I put in the corner of the layout didn’t stand out well enough so I use sticker letters and repeated the same word, overlapping the slightly.

Pop the layout into a frame and Ta-Da, it’s ready to be displayed!!

Now for a few close ups to check out the details a bit better!

 Thank you so much for stopping in and I hope you enjoyed my slice of heaven.  Creating should make you feel happy, it should make you feel like you’re leaving a little piece of you on the project. It doesn’t matter how you create or what you create, what’s important is that you create.

Take a few minutes to check out my Instagram and Facebook for more sneak peeks and upcoming tutorials!!

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!
