Treasured Memories Layout – TCW

Hello and happy Friday!!! Today is my turn up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for a very dear friend of mine.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

The papers I used for this layout is the Rosalee range by Penelope Dee. I started off layering my background with plain black and white cardstock, corrugated cardstock and patterned paper.

I used a make up sponge and TCW9001 White Gesso to lightly cover the corrugated cardstock to add a little bit of softness to the layout.

Next I stamped the background with a script stamp and black archival ink. And also stamped the stitches around the edges using Plum archival ink. Next I mixed TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Autumn Maple Crimson to create a pink paste.

Before I applied the paste and adhered my patterned paper to the background, I measured where the paper will be sitting on the layout. I did this so that I knew where to stencil.

Then I applied the mixed paste to my layout using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil in the 6×6.

Next I covered my chipboard mannequin with TCW9002 Black Gesso and once the gesso was dry, I then applied Therm O Web Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive.

Once the adhesive was tacky I then rubbed on Rebehak Meier Mixed Media Transfer Foil Sheets – New Penny.

I then inked my Penelope Dee chipboard title and leaves using archival ink and painted my flowers using the same magical shaker I used for the paste.

Then I adhered all the elements to my layout using a liquid adhesive.

These Are Treasured Memories layout

Hi Everyone, I’m back today to share with you my interpretation of the Dusty Attic December Mood Board. These colours are just amazing and I decided to use these colours as the base of my layout.

And this is what I came up with…

I started by using 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy pp – Cloud Watching and white Cardstock as my base. Then mixed some white gesso with Distress Stain Peacock Feathers to create a light blue paint.

Using my fingers I applied the paint onto my paper and used a heat tool to dry. I then applied Nuvo Embellishment Mouse – Pacific Teal using a baby wipe in a swiping motion. I then put a small amount of white gesso onto the baby wipe to help blend the mouse.

I also used the same mousse around the edges of the my photo mount before adhering my photo.

Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Spray – Shabby Turbine Teal to create depth around the torn edges of my paper using a paint brush and some water.

I then added some texture by using TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil.

Now for the chippy!!! I used Dusty Attic Geometric Border, Geometric Corners  and cut them into smaller pieces so I could build a layer with them. I then painted them and the  String Frames Small with Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks – Raven Black. Once dry I then adhered them onto my layout.

I then used my finger to apply a small amount of Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint – Mermaid Sparkle and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal to the geometric pieces.

I also added some stamping using Stampers Anonymous stamps – Ultimate Grunge and Slight Alterations with Ranger Archival Ink – Watering Can.

Then to finish it off I used These Are Treasured Moments chipboard and lightly covered with white gesso using a make up sponge and then blended Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal around the edges. And adhered a tab from Mini Tabs #7 Black.

You Fill My Heart – The Dusty Attic DT

Hello there Lovelies!!

 I am super excited to be sharing with you all my very first design team project for The Dusty Attic!!!!

I have created this masculine scrapbooking layout using some amazing chipboard and other mixed media products.20170801_100221

How amazing are these chipboard pieces for boy layouts?! I started off by building my background using a TCW stencil from their new release and some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays. I then stamped randomly using a Kaisercraft Graffiti Stamp with black Versafine.

I used Aged Teal Embossing Enamel on my String Circle Frame piece and then cut into 2 pieces….this way I wasn’t wasting any of the chipboard behind the photo.
