Music is a what feelings sound like....Creative Embellishments

Music is a always on in our house...
The boys always have music on, wither downstairs while they are on the computer or playing games.  I have it on when I am cleaning or scrapbooking - so its on all the time lol!  And my husband always has it on in the shop!

Our oldest Cody seems to be the kid with the  most musical interest.  He plays the electric guitar and is really eclectic in his music tastes....he has Nickleback, Metallica, Johnny cash, 50's music and classical all on his playlist....  

This photo is from a farewell concert to the music teacher that had been at Cody's high school forever.

For the title I simply embossed the 'Sharp' from the small handsome border words in black.

I used the Authentique paper in lots of layers.

 I embossed the Music Note Borders in black and trimmed them to fit my page.  I added some grey seed beads and some fabulous Stars that I embossed with yellow

I LOVE this Music Note Frame...simply embossed it and it was perfect!  I added a few flowers and voila!

Never too Old for an Easter Egg Hunt - Creative Embellishments

Good morning!

I don't normally scrap in season - I scrapbook whatever catches my fancy and when I saw the Easter Egg Frame  from Creative Embellishments I knew what I wanted to do!

I used the Graphic 45 Artisan style papers because I love the bright and happy feel to them.

For the Easter Egg Frame I painted them with Prima acrylic paints then added some glitter.  I decided to keep with the orange and blues in the papers

In my clusters I added some painted and glittered Flourish Eggs 

We do Easter Egg hunts every year even though our boys are teens - they still like it and its tradition!  So I really think the title from the Egg Word Set fits

Messy Boy - Creative Embellishments!

Good morning!

I love grungy layouts...I like looking at them and I really like creating them.  Luckily for me I have two boys so I can create grungy masculine layouts!

 I love all the steampunk and grungy chipboard I can get from Creative Embellishments....right up my alley!
I used some more of the cotton candy dreams paper from 7 Dots Studio - I LOVE this paper!

I added lots of texture and highlights to my chipboard pieces.  For the paint splats and drips I started by adding natural sand medium with a paint brush, then sprayed a few dark grey and black mists.  I added some grey ink, some black stickles then finally I added some mica fragments.

 Now for the title piece 'Working Hard' and Grunge Gear Corner I started off the same way as the other chipboard - sand medium, sprays and ink...but then I used some copper paint that I used my finger to brush on and highlight.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to get a little grungy!
