Family Documented - Southern Ridge Trading Company

Good morning!
Man, it feels good to be creative again!

I had a lot of fun creating this layout using Southern Ridge chipboard and some beautiful papers from Blue Fern Studios

I started by trimming, inking then layering various papers from Blue Fern that I had in my stash

I altered the chipboard Mina Butterfly Trellis and the Vintage Border by painting it blue with Prima paint, letting it dry then applying a layer of Folk Art crackle medium, allowing to dry then added a top coat of folk art brown paint...the crackles look very cool

I added some inked flowers and beads to add visual interest.  I did not have any brown flowers so I changed the color with some Lindy's mist.  I also used a Prima mold with hot glue then painted it blue and added some brown mist.

I am also entering this in the paper issues 'I mist you' challenge

Thanks for stopping by,

Winter Fun!

Good morning!
Life has gotten a little slower here and I feel like I can start to create again!

Today I am sharing a wintry fun layout I did for Southern Ridge Trading Company and using the Scrap Shotz December Kit.

I started by trimming then layering my papers then die cutting many circle using the stitched circles die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I inked all the outside edges of my papers using the lawn fawn white ink

To enhance the snow already on the patterned paper I used the Soda Fizz stencil and the white ink.

For the wonderful Snow Flourishes I inked them white, applied clear embossing powder, then while the embossing powder was still sticky I added some Elizabeth Craft Designs Cool Diamond Silk Microfine glitter to add some more shine!

Thanks so much for stopping by
