Today is my last DT post for Sassy Scrappers and I would just like start off by thanking Olga for asking me to join her amazing team… what started out being for only 3 months ended up lasting 9 months and I have truly enjoyed every minute of it. And I would also like to thank all the Sassy Fans that have followed me over the last 9 months xx.
So let me show you what I created and how I went about it….
I started by cutting 7 strips of Glitz Design pp – Sunshine in my Soul – Stripe and adhered the 7 strips onto to Glitz Design – Sunshine in my Soul – Suns.
I then used TCW9001 White Gesso using my Finnabair 1″ Silicone Brush to seal around the paper cluster. I also used my finger to lightly rub white gesso around the edges of my photo.
Once dry I then started to apply my colours to the background. Using a wet paint brush I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists – Pastel Cobalt, then Chalk Ultramarine and to finish I used Chalk Indigo. Making sure I dried between colours.
I then splattered all 3 colours onto my background also
Next I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Caramel just to highlight some areas and then added some builders tape for a little bit of texture. (I bought this tape from my local hardware store)
I set that a side and started on my photo mount – I used some cardboard from a packing box and ripped the first layer off. I then rubbed white gesso around the edges and using a wet brush I applied a small amount of 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Indigo.
I then added some stickers from Pinkfresh Studio – Escape the Ordinary range and finished off with some stamping using Tim Hotlz stamps/stencil THMM104, a flair by Funky Flair Studio from the Boyz Rule range and some cotton thread in a blue and tan colour.
And there you have it – simple but lots of fun to create. Thanks for dropping by and until tomorrow – stay crafty!!! xx
Hello there my lovelies!!! Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media layout I created for Sassy Scrappers using some more fabulous products from 13 Arts. There is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see me in action.
Earlier this year I taught on a scrapbooking cruise and took this selfie of the girls working hard in one of my classes. As some of you know I have 3 boys which means I use a lot of blues in my scrapbooking. So I was super excited to be able to create a page that was just for the girls!!! So let me give you a quick run through on how I created this layout. I started by building my photo mount using 13 Arts Fly Away pp – Days and Nights. I used both sides of the pp and also used the A4 sticker sheet for the title and the small doilies.
To build my background I used gel medium to seal my paper and then applied 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Green with a paint brush and water. Once dry I then used 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Pink using the dabbing effect and splattered the page using both mists.
Then I stamped the background using Kaisercraft Diamond stamp and Ranger Emboss It Dabber (Versamark pad is fine to use also) and then heat embossed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder Guten Tag Teal.
Before adhering my photo cluster, I painted the edges of the cluster and the doilies with 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Pink and mounted the cluster using some scrap chipboard pieces.
The butterflies I fussy cut from 13arts Fly Away pp – Days and Night and I only adhered the center of the butterflies so I could add dimension by bending the wings. Then to finish off the layout I used a Dymo Label machine to add the date.
Thanks for dropping and I can’t wait to share with you all my next project
Hello Lovelies!! Today it’s my turn to share a mixed media layout over on the Sassy Scrappers Blog. I have linked all the products I have used to the Sassy Scrappers Store throughout the blog for your convenience.
So let me show you how I created this quick and easy scrapbooking layout.
I started off by applying a very thin coat of gel medium to my white cardstock and dried using my heat gun. I then applied Prima Color Philosophy Dye Ink – Apricot
by swiping the ink pad directly onto my cardstock. I then sprayed a little amount of water to let the ink move around until I was happy.
Next I stamped Prima Color Philosophy Dye Ink – Foggy Nights
onto my craft mat and added some water. Using a paint brush I applied the ink to my layout. So that nothing was wasted, I used the left over ink to splatter onto my layout.
Thanks for dropping by!!!

Hello and happy Thursday everyone!!! Today I am sharing an art journal page I created for Sassy Scrappers using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers and Dylusions Paints. Make sure you check out the video at the end of the blog!!
When I started my page, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do but after using the magical shakers for my background I decided to do an under water theme….. I’m not much of an artist when it comes to drawing and this was my first time drawing a mermaid (will definitely need to to practice some more lol) she isn’t perfect but I wanted to show some different techniques when using the shakers.
I then drew my mermaid onto some watercolour paper and used the above magical shakers plus Bratwust Brown and Oom Pah Pah Pink to colour in my mermaid and adhered her to my page.
I then decided that I wanted to do a bit more to the background so using a wet paint brush I played a little more with the shakers until I was happy.
Next I used Dylusions Paint Dirty Martini
and Fresh Lime
to paint some seaweed and used a paint pen to draw some weeds. Then I mixed a small amount of water to White Linen
to splatter onto the background.
To finish off the page I added some sparkle using a glitter glue – you can use Ranger Diamond Stickles
and just like that my page was finished.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope I have inspired you to create something special!!!
