You are the Bee's knees - 3Quarter Designs

I am loving scrapbooking some older photos of our boys recently and the gorgeous new Bee Happy line from 3Quarter Designs is perfect!

To begin I used clear gesso then applied texture paste with a stencil.  I used gold embossing powder on the stenciled image to accent the gold in the beautiful papers

I started layering the die cuts, adding some paper flowers and dyed cheese cloth

I added some 2Crafty Chipboard - Circle Dot Frame and Photo Adornment Decorative Rode Set 2 that I inked black and embossed then using a clear embossing pad I dabbed then embossed with gold powder.

I fussy cut the wonderful hexagon bee images

I LOVE the cute little title piece that I cut from one of the paper cuts offs!  Perfect for this layout!

Leaves Are Falling - 3Quarter Designs!

 Hi everyone!
I am so happy to share my first project for 3Quarter Designs!
For this layout I used the brand new Falling Leaves Collection.  The colours are phenomenal and the patterns are too fun!

For this project of our sons when they were little and enjoying a day of playing in the leaves, I used the 12x12 paper pack with the cut outs!  I trimmed one paper down to 11.5x11.5 then distressed the edges the base paper and the top paper.  I covered the top paper with clear gesso then added some texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil, heat set then added some colour using Brusho's yellow ochre powder and spritzing with water.

I cut the fabulous truck out of one of the papers!  The flourish I created using a Martha Stewart mold and Amazing casting resin then after drying I painted them with gesso then added colours using Rangers distress mica stains.

I used the bottom cut off from the paper for the title and painted the Cassie Flourish from 2Crafty to coordinate!

I made the flowers using the beautiful papers and dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs!

I added some coloured art stones to finish the layout.
I hope I have inspired you to create!

Good Times - 2Crafty Chipboard

 Hi!  I'm back to share my next creation with you!

I love texture so I had a lot of fun creating this layout of our boys years ago when we and our friends made a demolition derby car!

2Crafty chipboard used:

After covering the Craft O'Clock paper with clear gesso I added some texture paste (dyed with Lindy's hot poker orange magicals) then used finnabair wax and rubbed on the stenciled surface to highlight it.  THe stencil is from AALL and Create

To alter the awesome chipboard I covered each piece with white gesso then added heavy texture paste and heat set.  I started spraying with different mists and used the wax to highlight.

For the title piece I used gesso, then texture paste, then coloured it with 
an orange Gelato art crayon.

Your Greatest Creation - 3Quarter Designs

I am excited to share my first layout using the wonderful new Heavenly Wildflowers Line!

The papers are so pretty and have such wonderful colors!
I thought it would be perfect for a layout about my moms birthday party!  The photo is of me, my mom and my sister.

I covered the paper with clear gesso then added some texture paste with a stencil, then colored with Lindys magicals

I then layered lots of the beautiful cut outs and added a few paper flowers and 2Crafty chipboard  pieces - Flourish 2, Circle Dot Frames and Ritas Swirly Border that I painted light purple.

I love the large bouquets cut outs!
To keep with the bright and happy feeling of the layout I added some sparkle with foil pieces and gems.

Dogs Have A Special Way - 2 Crafty

Hey everyone!  Hope you are all having a fabulous day!
For my first March layout I wanted to share a layout I created about one of our two furbabies - Axle!  He is a very sweet and loving dog that wants nothing more than food and cuddles.  He may be 75 pounds but he thinks he's a lap dog!

2 Crafty Products used:

The title piece I painted to match the bright and colorful G45 paper then used clear embossing powder to give it a shine

To create the clusters I used the circle stack in varying sizes and the dotty bits along with some elements from the G45 collection.  For these pieces I also painted them and used clear embossing powder

Even the leaves fall for you - 3Quarter Designs

 Hi everyone!
I am back to share my next layout using the awesome Falling Leaves Collection from 3Quarter Designs!

I used a wonderful photo of my hubby and I taken by Breaultography a few years ago.

After trimming the top paper and distressing the edges of both the papers I applied clear gesso and allowed to dry.  I used a copper rub on from my stash, then used a Tim Holtz stencil with texture paste heat set then coloured using Brusho powders.

I trimmed the title from the paper cut offs, distressed the edges then added some Prima foil.  I layered the title over the cut outs.

I create the flowers using the papers and Elizabeth Craft Designs floral dies then some of their micro fine copper glitter.  The resin pieces were created using a Stamperia soft mould (forest magic) that I got from a previous design team - The Funkie Junkie Boutique and amazing casting resin then coloured them with brusho powders and the Ranger distress mica stains.

I colored a doily with brusho powders and ranger distress mica stains.

I wanted to added some Bo Bunny copper glitter paint to a few places but it had dried up but I still liked the way it looked so I cut up a few pieces of the dried up paint and tucked the pieces into the clusters.

Hope I inspired you today
