Hero - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Good morning! I am here today to share my next layout I created for ECD!
I really like to mix my papers from different collections as long as the color families are the same so for this layout I mixed some papers from the Mystical Winter paper pack, the Rusty Weathered and the Summer Art!

To create this layout:
Step 1 - Trim one paper to 11x7 and distress the edges, distress the edges of a 12x12 sheet and cut a 'V' into the top right of both papers about 2 1/2 " from the edge. Cut one more piece of paper large enough to be adhered behind the cut 'V'
Step 2 - adhere all the papers together and then cover with clear gesso and allow to dry

Step 3 - using watered down paints paint circles randomly in various sizes and also splatter some paint

Step 4 - Die cut 7 flowers and assemble. I die cut Florals 6, 8, 1, 2, 3, and 4 using white cardstock then painted them with the watercolor palette.

Step 5 - add your title

Step 6 - add some resin pieces, seed beads, art stones and cord to finish your layout!

I am also entering this in the More Than Words June 2021 challenge





Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to create something today!

I am happy to share my next layout I created for Funkie Junkie Boutique for their June 2nd challenge!

"On June 2,  1953 the then 27 year old Elizabeth II was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom.  I thought why not honor this event by having a challenge that includes inspiration from royalty.  Think crowns, castles, elegant and regal patterns, or gilding your project  with touches of gold!  Create a shabby chic or vintage project inspired by royalty!"

Everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it to the blog post to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post.

If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words 'Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge'. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs.

I used texture paste mixed with colorant powder through a stencil on paper that I covered in clear gesso

I embossed my Creative Embellishments chipboard and painted others.  I used teal paint to accent it then used the gold mist and paint for the challenge. Also for the challenge is the title!

Funny Face - Creative Embellishments!

 Good morning!

Our youngest son is a bit of a jokster!  He makes faces at the camera all the time and sometimes I catch it!

For this layout I used kraft cardstock as my base and that I covered with clear gesso

I then used texture paste with the small squares stencil and colored it with navy mists.  Once dry I did a splattering on the kraft paper after I had inked the edges then I distressed them


I painted and inked the Tag from the tag set one

 Inked the distressed harlequin pieces and pieces from the hexagon panel that I cut apart

I also inked the distressed circle border and the washi tape clusters in complimentary colors so I could layer them

I added the title, some seed beads, pearls, metal pieces and died flowers to finish the layout

I am also entering this layout in the More Than Words May Challenge

'This month we ask you to use the inspiration word FACES and add a KRAFT BACKGROUND to your project.'

SeaBreeze - Creative Embellishments

 Good morning!
The beach - any beach - is my favorite place to be!

This family photo was taken on a family trip to Punta Cana (pre-covid)

I used texture paste with the Small Circles stencil.

For the chipboard pieces, the Arrow Frame, Beach Fence, Nautical trading coins, Sea Artist Trading Coins and Beach Word Set I covered them with clear gesso.  I mixed some teal and white paint together to create a more beachy faded feel, followed by some antiquing medium on the chipboard then dry brushed some white paint.

I added some flowers, die cuts and 3 D stickers to finish it!  Thanks for stopping by
