I am so blessed

 


Hello creative friends.
I am sharing a new single layout as Brand Ambassador 
for Penelope Dee using the gorgeous new 
YOU-NIQUE collection.


I love the bright bold colours in the collection 
which match my photograph perfectly.

I prepared the background of my layout by layering 
some of the papers and then stenciling around 
my main composition with crackle mousse, 
allowing it to dry completely to bring out the cracks.


I layered cut-outs from the collection around my 
photograph together with flowers and chipboards.



I diluted some of the crackle mousse 
for splashes to complete my layout.


I hope that this layout inspires you.

Life is short. Take the journey.

 


Hello creative friends.
I am sharing a new layout for 
2Crafty Chipboard with you all today 
using some of their beautiful chipboards 
as well as paper from Penelope Dee's 
ESSENCE collection.

I prepared my chipboard pieces by first 
painting them with green metallic paint 
and then lightly rubbing them with orange wax.




I gave the title a generous coating of 
orange wax and then painted it with 
copper glitter acrylic ink.


Of course, my layout wouldn't be complete 
without layering cut-outs from the collection 
together with some flowers.



The 2Crafty chipboards which I 
used on my layout include the following ...


Thanks for stopping by.

Fill your life with adventure and stories to tell

 


Hello again creative friends.
I am sharing a new double layout as 
Brand Ambassador for Penelope Dee with you all 
today using the new WILD AND FREE collection.


I created this layout using photographs 
of a very special, fun family holiday a while back 
which go really well with the papers 
in this collection.

I layered the different elements and 
cut-outs from the collection on my layout, 
raising some pieces to give depth.



Chipboard pieces were painted with
green paint.



So many leaves to cut out to create depth 
and an outdoor feel for my layout.


I hope that this layout has inspired you.

Memories

 


Hello creative friends.
I am sharing a new layout as Design Team member for 13arts
using the soft and romantic MAGNOLIA DREAMS collection.


I prepared the background of my layout by coating the paper
with a good covering of clear gesso.
Once the gesso was dry, I mixed Rose Quartz Color Glow 
with gel medium and stenciled
onto the paper using two different stencils.



I also applied the gel medium along the sides and top 
of my layout using a spatula, dragging the product 
in a downward motion.


I painted the resin piece with Amber Color Glow 
with liquid acrylic medium and then, once dry, 
I dry brushed it with white gesso.
I dry brushed the gesso onto the flowers
as well.



Splashes of white ink completed my layout.



I hope that this layout has inspired you.

Moment

 


Hello creative friends.
I am sharing a new masculine layout as 
Design Team member for 2Crafty 
Chipboard with you all today using some of the
steampunk chipboards as well as paper and 
embellishments from the 13arts
Industrial Zone collection.

I prepared the background of my layout by 
stenciling with a combination of gel medium 
and Golden Calcite Color Glow.



Some chipboard pieces were painted with
black gesso and then lightly painted with 
the Color Glow diluted with water.



The rest of the chipboard pieces were 
painted with the Color Glow added to 
liquid acrylic medium.



Once my layout was completed, I lightly 
brushed the edges of the chipboard pieces 
with white gesso and lightly rubbed them 
with bronze wax to give them definition.



Chipboard pieces which I used on my layout include


I hope that this layout has inspired you in some way.

Let your feet wander and your eyes marvel

 


Hello creative friends.
I am sharing a new layout as Brand Ambassador for 
Penelope Dee using the beautiful new 
WILD AND FREE collection.


I prepared the background of my layout by stenciling
with a combination of gel medium and green shimmer paint,
combined with a small amount of black gesso
to deepen the colour.



The chipboard leaves were painted with sand paint, 
lightly heat embossed with Sage embossing powder 
and then rubbed with green wax.



I added the leaves, together with elements 
from the cut-out sheets to frame my photograph.


I hope that this layout has inspired you.
