Love these guys

Hi Kerry here today. How is your weekend going?
I have a couple of layouts to share with you all today. This is photo from a few years ago now.
I just love a title for my page that takes the hard work out of making one up. You can find this many others on the site. Any title you could imagine. (Certainly makes scrapping easier.)
A picture from the same day. YOU....We all had a great time at the Halls Gap Zoo. You can find arrow words here.

Thanks for stopping by and reading. Are you ready to see what the new design team have come up with?? I know I cant wait. Not long now.

Hello Beautiful

HI everyone
While you are reading this post, I will be enjoying an overseas adventure
with my daughter. There will be plenty of creations to come when
I return.
But today, I am sharing a page of my son.
 I have used the Hello Beautiful title (which is actually
2 separate words. There is also a similar title with the 2 words attached)
This has been coloured with gold inka gold
 I also used this fantastic new piece (I LOVE THIS ONE)
The Love Lightbulb comes in a set of 3 so great value for money.
I have coloured this with Inka gold in a turquoise colour
and then lightly went over the top of the word in gold inka gold.
I hope you have enjoyed this piece.

Happy scrapping

Hi all.
Do you struggle trying to use 12x12 chipboard pieces such as this?
Don't be worried. Just treat it as a normal piece of background paper
and then you won't feel so scared.
For this page I just used an older piece of patterned paper that wasn't so bold.
I then painted the 12 x 12 chipboard piece with the black border
and randomly painted numbers in various bright colours to pop
off the black background. 
 From there, I just matted the photo in matching colours and kept the rest
of the page simple, with limited embellishments.
 I find this page quite eye-catching with that great piece as the background.
I hope this has inspired you
Happy scrapping

Lovely Darling Daughters

Hello. Its Kerry here to share some A2Z Scraplets layouts that I have been working on.
Not usually a colour that I work with but its good to change things up every now and then.
I painted this scraplet in white and smeared some gelatos over it. It came out a gorgeous creamy colour. You can find this scraplet here.

I love these black shapes as it means less work for me to do.

I just had a quick doodle around it to make it pop on my it.
You can find it here.

Thankyou for stopping by and reading.
Have a great weekend
Kerry xx

Tags by Lauren

Hello Everybody, Lauren and Teddy up on the blog today with a couple of tags this time.

We had such fun making this mixed media Tag of the Sea.   We started by using some Texture paste on with A2Z Scraplets Stencil Flourishes and then painting the all over with Ranger Distress Paint Broken China and then some sponging of Bundled Sage over the top.  When dry I sponged with Inka Gold Aquamarine with added water to get the mottled look.

Next came some decorating with seashell, netting, charms and microbeads over a coat of white glue (dries clear) and some touches of colour  Viva Inca Gold in colours of Gold, Jade and Rose Quartz.
When I was happy with the decorated look, I added some Inka Gold in Cobalt Blue around the edge and put the bubbles on and the A2Z Scraplets Hello.   The hello was done in Inka Gold Charcoal and Cobalt Blue and then coated with Crackle Accents.

This Christmas Tag was done with and embossing folder from Courture Creations that was sprayed with Colourblast Shimmer Spray Deep Water.

Lace and netting to decorate, a pine die cut for the foliage and the Memory Box Luxe Pointsettia .  Merry Christmas added with the A2Z Scraplets Xmas Tree

The Christmas Tree was embossed using Stampendous EP in Shabby White, I just love this stuff!!!

Now I just what to show you some different effects that can be obtained by some crackle mediums.  I love crackle, or the look of it.  All the below examples are painted prior to using a crackle medium on them.

This first one, is done in Inkssentials Crackle Accents.  Only the triangles were done, covering the sides of the triangles in one single line of medium and then pulling it to the centre, so that it was really dimensional.

This one Wrought Iron  was done with Viva Crackle Medium and gives a more opaque finish and a different effect of really squiggly cracks.  The medium was applied all over and fairly thickly.  I applied this with a palette knife as this is easier for me than a brush.

This leaf was done with Crackle Accents, I really like the way this gives the line effect at the edges of all the leaves (Simple Greens).  I must experiment more with the way this is applied as I think I get different effects with different ways of applying it.

The Brickwork Pieces is done with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy.  I love the little squares of crackle this gives, and will give the same effect thick or thin.  This was applied with the brush that comes in the bottle of Crackle Paint. 

Now you want my conclusions....... you are just busting to know that I find the crackling effect of all three products amazing....... for ease of use I say the Crackle Accents by Inkssentials is fool proof as it has an applicator nozzle and for lazy people like me it is so easy to use!!!!

Well that's it for us this time, thanks for calling in.

Love Lauren and Teddy
