SUMMER DREAM layout with Simona




Hello everyone! I'm Simona  and today I want to show you my brand new project for Scrap&Craft...a breezy, summery LayOut...
I am very fond of this picture, taken last year on the beautiful and 'wild' Ag. Theologos beach in Kos...the mesmerizing sound of the waves and the amazing shades of the sea are still so vivid in my memories...
I have used a sheet of 12x12 paper from the 'Daydream' collection by Lemoncraft...these papers are absolutely gorgeous! The designs are so beautiful and perfect for my Summer mood!

Let's start...

I have covered the paper with Clear Gesso, then with a wash of white gesso added with a brayer.
Tried to add a composition of my elements, and when I have found the perfect placement I added colour using Inks, stamped here and there for more interest and then added modeling paste through a stencil...while it was still wet I sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set.
More stenciling with a white acrylic paint and dried it well.



Glued all the layers under the photo..I have used a lot of scrap papers, cardboard and pieces of vellum, when everything was in its place I added more colour with ink and a brush, dried and glued the 3d elements...Added also pieces of chipboard previously coated with white gesso.

Here's more details...






SUPPLIES FROM SCRAP & CRAFT STORE:


Hope you enjoyed this week's project...I wish you a great Sunday and....see you next time!

Kisses&Hugs!

Beautiful Marilyn- Craft o'clock "Celebrate Today" layout by Lynne

Hello there! I love the soft greens and greys in this lovely paper line and I knew it would look perfect with this photo of Marilyn Monroe that I've been wanting to use on a page for a while.  I love vintage movies and stars, and every so often I create a layout featuring one.


I stenciled with texture paste and misted here and there, and I couldn't resist making a few more foamiran flowers for added texture.



The leaf sprays were diecut then rubbed onto a green inkpad. The beautiful flowers in the paper pack are perfect for fussy cutting and layering. I randomly punched along the edge with a notebook punch for a little added interest, and added the looped pearl string, which I got at the dollar store.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my page; if you've ever done a celebrity layout, I'd love to see it on our Scrap & Craft Inspiration page!  Wishing you a wonderful and creative week!

"Dream of Being More" featuring Craft O'Clock Morning Dreams II with Tracey


Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey here with a new project for you. I created a two in one piece. It's an oversized mixed media graduation card, reinforced with an extra layer of 110lb cardstock so it can be placed on an easel to brighten up a mantel or desk. Rather than using a congratulations or graduation sentiment on the front, I stamped this inspirational sentiment that is perfect for a home decor piece as well as an encouragement to the graduate.

Tips and Techniques
The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the Scrap & Craft Store. The gorgeous background paper is from the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II Paper Collection. I also fussy cut flower images from the collection to layer under the cluster. The background and borders are stamped with Grille and Grille 3 Stamps from the store. I added a touch of teal pastels around the edges as well.

Bambino Glue dries clear and is just perfect for adhering texture with Prills and microbeads along with sequins, half pearls, and flakes of teal mica scattered onto the background.

From this angle you can see Pearl Stamens from the store that I tucked in under the rosebuds. I just adore the chipboard from Scrapiniec's Doily Lace Corner Set that I heat embossed in teal, then topped with another layer of blue glittered embossing powder. 

I collect odds and ends to use in my paper crafting from a variety of different sources. The decorative crystal and pearl stick pin is for wedding decor. I also tucked in a couple seashells I found at the shore on one of our vacations as well as a few flowers from my stash. A while back I crocheted some sweet little flowers and came across them recently. I couldn't resist adding one at the edge of the paper flowers.

The sentiment is stamped with permanent black ink onto watercolor paper. Once dry, I spritzed with water and brushed with watercolor paint, then tore around the words to expose the creamy white paper edges. Foam squares are used to raise up the sentiment so it sits nicely over the twine wrapped around the card.

I used light molding paste with the Studio75 Small Brick Stencil to add texture and when dry spritzed with color mist, then spattered with white ink.

I got artsy with these sweet summery dragonflies. They're stamped onto watercolor paper, then colored with blue and teal watercolors. It was a bit of extra work to fussy cut them, but well worth the effort! I wanted something shimmery, so added teal seed beads to the long slender bodies with Bambino Glue.

Dream Forever card with LemonCraft

Hello everyone!

Emmy here today with my first post for July. Can you believe that we are already half way through the year?!
For today's post I designed a card using the wonderful papers from LemonCraft and Scrapiniec chipboard.


Products used to create this card:
Scrapiniec - Brush art script - Dream
White cardstock, 30x30 cm
White Pearls
Mulberry Paper Magnolia Flowers x 5 - White
Pink Cherry Blossoms
Double Sided Tape 12 mm
3D foam cubes

Take a 30 x 30 cm white cardstock and cut off a 21 x 15 cm stripe. Fold it in two to create the card card base. Cut a 10 x 14 cm and 9 x 13 cm panels from pattern papers from the Yesterday basic scrapbooking papers pack. Distress their edges using a paper distresses and a paper piercing tool and adhere them to the card base.


Die cut a paper doily from the pattern paper and adhere the chipboard sentiment on top using glue dots.



To decorate my card I used pink and white blossoms and die cut leaves. 


As a final touch I added self adhesive pearls.


I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Have a wonderful creative week!
