A perfect day by Judith Armstrong

Hi and welcome to the weekend and my last share for this month. Today I have a heritage page to share. I am a very keen family historian and I have lots of old family photos. It's one of the reasons I got into scrapbooking. This layout features the wedding of my great aunt back in the 1930s.

Lots of times we tend to put photos under frames but this time I decided to put my photo over the corner of the rose thorny wreath frame . I also used the distressed diamonds stencil with some texture paste behind the frame. 

Here are some close ups

I painted the chipboard with gesso and then coloured with gelatos which I then spread over the chipboard with baby wipes.

As the patterned paper was quite busy I kept the extra embellishments to a minimum just adding some flowers which matched the paper, a doily and some muslin.

Thanks for looking

Ready or Not

Hi everyone.
Welcome to another post by me.
Today I have another Summer page to share.
This time a photo that was taken 2 years ago on a family holiday.

 I have used some watercolours & mists on my background
then used some softer embellishments to compliment the page
 I have embossed my fine scribble circle frame
with embossing enamel and used it to frame the photo
 I love the fine glitter in the enamel which helps soften the page
Thanks for visiting and happy scrapping

"Fishing" scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

Hi Scrap Friends

Louise here of Timeless Craft Mumma

Today I'd like to share a mixed media layout + process video with you.


I've got a mad keen fisherman husband and that spills over to our boys.
So when I saw this chipboard I knew I had the perfect layout in mind.

Check it out here

My preparation of the chipboard started as adding a layer of acrylic paint and I was going
to clear emboss over the top ...
however, I accidentally grabbed the white embossing powder instead of the clear!

So back to the drawing board - I ended up heating the white embossing and then adding
two more layers of embossing powder to get the final product.

I've made a video sharing  how I created this layout.

I've used the Oblong Stencilit and I have to tell you how impressed I am with the stencils.
They are tough but flexible and mediums wash off them really easily.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Love {heart}

Hello Tanya here with another layout to share using some more A2Z Scraplets
chipboard and stencils. I must say I had lots of fun doing this one.

I have painted this You hold a piece of my heart chipboard piece with black paint and 
then covered it with Crackle Accents to give the crackled effect. You probably all have 
an old jigsaw puzzle laying around your home, well that's were I got the two puzzle pieces 
from. I did the same technique on them as I did the chipboard title. The heart word has 
been painted with gesso then painted with the left over magicals that I used to make the 
background sploggy bits.  The background of my paper I used the Fading dots stencil 
with gesso.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.
Cheers - Tanya
