Scrap the girls - July challenge

Hi everyone.....

There is still time to create your layouts for STG this month! We would love to see your creations!

This month we want you to create a layout using PAINT and TEXTURE PASTE! How easy!

So here is a step by step for how I created my layout....

1. Started with plain piece of cardboard (that was a backing sheet to something I had bought!).

2. Got out my Gesso, ready to go!

3. Painted some Gesso on the background... random stripes up and down.

4. Next I got my texture paste and my metal spatula.

5. Using my Tim Holtz Masks, I put some splattering of texture paste on the layout. They are strategically placed based on my layout design (which I already have planned in my brain!). As you can see I didn't wash off some red mist from the mask and this kinda came through with the texture paste, but it doesn't matter!

6. Gold mist through the hearts masks on the whole layout. <3 <3 <3
Looked like this....

7. Got my Tim Holtz Distress stain ready...

8. And ran it over another mask in a few spots on the layout. The distress stain bleeds and is a bit messy, but that is all part of the effect!

9. Next, for extra effect, a few splatters of Dylusions mist. I unscrew the lid and flicked the ink from the end of the stick.

10. Using Mod Podge, I glued down some bits of tissue paper to the background.

11. Background now done and dried, I start layering the photo and embellishments. Strips of Washi tape, staples, vellum & paper die cuts, skeleton leaves all play a part in the layout.

12. Some clusters of flowers, leaves, sticker words and buttons. As well as some Freckled Fawn arrows, Glitz designs bling, and even a DIY Flutterby designs flair. Looks like I added some black stamping in there on the background too - musta forgotten to take a photo of that!

Ta da! Here's the final layout......

Please join the fun at STG this month!!!!

D'Lish challenge # 8 - Plastic painting

Challenge #8 - Karyn asked us to use the Plastic bag painting technique on our layout. Check out her blog post on it HERE.

Here is my page - I decided on a Kraft paper background for something different. And used my gelatos and water and plastic bag! :)

YAHOO - I did it! I used so many bits and bobs I probably will need to go and have a shop at D'Lish again soon! :)

D'Lish Challenge #4 - Mood Board

Challenge # 4 - Lovely Rainbow Mood Board from Agnus!

Had to have a go at some Rainbow colours!
Once I gesso'd my cardstock, I also added the triangles with texture paste. Coloured background created with my gelatos and water spraying! I also stamped in each colour of the rainbow with my trusty Kaisercraft diamonds stamp. Was easy to sprinkle matching embellishments then! I don't really like it when my paper curls up, so I often crop the background and stick it down to a nice patterned paper that matches.

D'Lish products: Pinkfresh enamel frames, sequin bow, spotty buttons.

D'Lish Challenge # 3 - Flowers

Challenge # 3

So I loaded up the flowers on my page! Diecut flowers, crotchet flower, resin flowers, paper roses, paper carnations, transparency flower, chipboard cutout. Amazing what you can find in your stash when you need to!

D'Lish products used: resin flowers, paper flowers, flairs, fabric flag, spotty buttons, leaves, crotchet flower. (Lucky for D'lish goodies!)

D'Lish Challenge #2 - Sketch

I stuck to the sketch with my page of Jessie in the park!

I sprayed my background with Dylusions ink. And while it was nearly dry, I painted white gesso across the centre. Then I used gelatos with plastic packaging stamping (Shown to me by my mate Leonie Neale-Dawson and then just like Karyn showed us for #8 challenge - works so well with gelatos).


D'Lish products used: Freckled Fawn resin stars, Canvas bow, Heart flair, paper rose, resin flower, washi.
