love and kisses

Todays sneak peek is brought to you by the ever amazing Bloom Girls. This was one of those layouts that started one way, then I hated how it was turning out, so instead of throwing it out I salvaged what I loved and finished!! This is exactly how I like tp look at things in life… things may not always be perfect, or turn out how you want it to, but theres always…. ALWAYS a good part that can me held onto and rebuilt on!

So, here are some sneak peeks at what the full project will look like. Check out the Bloom Girls blog for the full tutorial and supply list.

A Little Gift

today I got to shower a great friend with love and happiness:) it was her bridal shower and naturally my mind went crafty… What could I make her… So I decided double layouts, and a date memory box were perfect!

After days of layers, hours of drying and loads of medium I designed two fab layouts featuring two of my fav pics of the beautiful couple!!

I started by find out the brides fav colors; blue, pink and grey. With that said I created two backgrounds, one with blues and one with pinks! Next was a thick layer of stencilled coarse moulding paste.  Then I added a touch of grey to them both to enhance the paste.

I laid the pic where I wanted to end up being and sketched around it with a stabilo pencil, then sprayed it with water, I love how the color bleeds when wet.

For the blue layout I layered flowers, chipboard pieces and embellishments before adhering the photo. Dry brush white gesso onto the embellishments and apply more blues and greys. Once dry, use pop dots to adhere to photo onto layout on top of the flowered pieces.

For the pink layout I adhered the photo down then adhered flowers, chipboard and embellishments. Then I applied white gesso to the embellishments and applied more pink and grey tones to them.

On both layouts I covered the photos and splattered around the photo keeping the splatters tight and not over the entire layout! This helped to tie it all together!!

here is a pic of how the full three projects look together!!!
