Creative Inspiration Layout

Hello readers and welcome to my Mad About Scrappin Monday project share.  Today I have a layout that I have created using the papers .... from My Minds Eye Jubilee - "Adventure" Be Daring Paper.  These papers are from a recent kit I received from Leanne.  I just love the wooden floorboard background and it went perfectly with this pic of my son on his motorbike.


I have added some splatters to the background using some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in Tibetan Poppy Teal and the black splatters are just some watery black acrylic paint that splattered on with a paintbrush.  



I have used large teal-ish coloured enamal dots, wooden "wow" icon,green bakers twine, buttons and a little "Enjoy Life" badge that were included in this kit. Well readers there isn't much more to tell so I will let the pictures do some of the talking.
 I have added a Kaisercraft rub-on to the one of the journalling spots and to the paper strip.



  
Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this week's project.  As always guys....please check out the links below to see what other happenings have been going on over at Mad About Scrappin.

Vintage themed Necklaces

Hey all....Well it is wednesday - Hump day - down here in my part of the world and that means I get to share with you all my latest project for Faith Pococks Craft Studio Ltd.  This week I thought I would try my hand at creating some vintage themed necklaces using alot of these luscious metals that I received in my recent kit.


Now I don't claim to be any kind of a jeweller and this is really my first time at making anything like this, but when I received these gorgeous cabachons in this months kit I was really inspired to create some vintage-y slash grungey looking necklaces.  I have created two using the silver and antique bronze supplies that were in my box of goodies.  So readers here are some process pics I managed to take on this new creative journey







and here are the glamour pics...




and the Antique Bronze version





Last but by no means least here is a list of the supplies I used to create these gorgeous necklaces..
Mixed Media Girl Cabechon
Silver Chain
Solid Cameo Setting

Photo Folio

Hello Everyone, well it is Monday down here in my neck of the woods and it is time for to share my Mad About Scrappin Monday project.  Today I have a little photo folio that I have created using the gorgeous Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate paper pad.



I have been watching a few youtube vids on these of late and decided to give one a try.  I have made mine smaller than most, but it is great for those instagram pics.  I won't go into too much detail on how to construct this as there are soooo many tutorials over on youtube.

I have created the cover from some extra thick poster board that I have covered with some Dark brown Card stock and then matted with the papers.
 I have used a paper punch to create a lacey border with I topped with some vintage cotton lace.  I have added some bling and flowers from my stash.  I created the closure with some crinkled seam binding that I dyed using Tim Holtz Tattered Rose ink.


 On the inside I have created a pocket which holds three tags for journalling or they could be places to mat some photos. On the right handside I have created a double sided waterfall that will hold up to 8 photos.

Here are some close ups and more glamorous pics for you......








I also have a little pocket with a tag for journalling.....

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this week's project.  As always guys....please check out the links below to see what other happenings have been going on over at Mad About Scrappin.

A4 Cigar Box Secrets Layout

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.  Today I want to share with you my latest project made for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.  This layout is created with Prima's Cigar Box Secrets Collection and it is an A4 one.  My first time creating this kind of layout.  I have used a 12x12 sketch, but just resized it all to fit.I usually make 12x12 scrap book layouts but thought I would have a go at A4 and enjoyed working in the different dimensions ! For a beginner - not quite as daunting as 12x12 but still lots of space to play !!!
I started with a piece of black cardstock as my base and then layered with the spotted side of "Figurado" which I had ripped and distressed.  I then tucked in some scraps from "Perfecto" and used my mini stapler to add some staples for some texture.  I  gave the page a quick white wash with some very diluted gesso and then added some random stamping, which you can see in the pic below.
Once this was all dry I began messing around with the layers.  I have used two of the 4x6 journalling cards and leftovers from my previous projects.  Yes I save all my little bits n pieces, you just never know when they will come in handy.  I added some of the twine that came in the embellishment kit, which I had stiffened by rubbing a light coat of PVA glue into it.  This enabled me to create my circle and keep its shape.  I then added all those gorgeous prima flowers you see in the corner cluster and one of the 3D stickers.
To the left I have added some more leftover strips, a stamped butterfly, Tim Holtz Film Strip ribbon and another one of the 3D stickers.  Here are few close ups on the details.
