Beach Vacation - Creative Embellishments

Good mornin!
I am back today to share my newest project for Creative Embellishments!

I am loving all the new stencils Nicolle has been busy creating!

To create this layout

1 - cover your background paper with clear gesso then let dry or dry with heat gun and if it is light paper glue onto heavy cardstock, chipboard or cardboard
2 - using texture paste and your favorite Creative Embellishments stencil create a frame around the outside of your background of your background paper.  I used the harlequin stencil
3 - starting with your lightest color of mist you want to use start painting where you applied the stenciled texture paste, then proceed with the next shade and then finally your darkest.  You may want to apply more than one coat to get your desired look.

 4 - paint all your chipboard pieces with a one of the colors you used on your frame - I used the Palm Trees, Sea Artist Trading coins, Vacation title and Beach Word Set 2

5 - paint any flowers you wish to use.
6 - cut three pieces of coordinating paper about  4x6 and distress the edges.

7 - adhere everything together including your By The Sea Flair and art stones and gems

Beach Life

Good morning!

Over the Christmas holidays we were lucky enough to spend some time in Punt Cana and we had family photos taken - where else but on the beach of course!

I do not normally create blog posts with specific items but to create this layout you will need a few specific items
1 12x12 sheet of patterned paper and few pieces for die cutting and flower making (I used Ciao Bella Codex - Leonardo)
1 sheet of photo paper
4 - 5 colorant powders (I used Brusho in terracotta, turquoise, Prussian blue, yellow ochre, and Dark brown)
dies - favorite flower die (I used small flower die, bunch of flowers, large flower) your favorite circle die (I used stitched circles), stitched fishtails, and planner essentials 11
scraps of cardboard
ink and glue

To create this layout:

1 - take an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of photos paper and cut it in half. Spray with water then add your color powders and spray with water again. Continue adding powders and water until you are satisfied with the results then heat set with your heat gun

Step 2 - using your stitched fishtails and the colorful photo paper you just created, die cut your desired size of fishtails ( I used the second smallest). Die cut enough t fit across the page - I used 10 then ink the edges
Step 3 - using your favorite flower dies die cut, ink edges and assemble 8 flowers.
Step 4 - using your favorite circle die die cut 3 circles in sizes of your choice. Then cut into a spiral and ink the edges the roll into a flower

Step 5 - die cut one large circle in a silhouette, cut the center circle in half then ink both the silhouette circle and the two half circles.
Step 6 - die cut two torn ledger pieces (tear ends off to make them more grungy looking) and one of the the ledger pieces from planner essential 11
Step 7 - tear pieces of cardboard and ink the edges

Step 8 - ink the edges of your 12x2 paper
Step 9 - adhere everything together then add your title

Pontiac Catalina - Creative Embellishments, Rinea and Elizabeth Craft Designs

Good morning everyone!
back today to share a very masculine layout I created for collaboration with Creative Embellishments and Rinea and also using Elizabeth Craft Designs products!

Here is how I created this layout:

Step 1: ink a 12x12 sheet of paper (I used Kaisercraft Factory 42)
Step 2: Die cut 14 circles of varying sizes using coordinating paper and the Rinea foil paper (I used Earth Tones) and the Stitched circles then ink the edges

Step 3: Die cut your photo into a circle and die cut one size larger for a photo mat 

Step 4: Gather your chipboard pieces and alter them (instructions are included at bottom of post)
Step 5: die cut 3 fishtails

 Step 6: trim the title out and ink the edges

Step 7: assemble

To alter the chipboard:

Step 1: gather  all your chipboard - I used Large Gear Frames, Gear 1 1/2", mini gears 3/4" and Car Part Set

Step 2: ink all chipboard in black

Step 3: mix together your embossing powder  with silk microfine glitter
I used a ratio of about 3 parts embossing powder to one of each glitter

For the black I used ranger super fine black embossing powder, basic black, Copper, and Rust glitters.

For the coppery pieces I used Imagine Ink Chili embossing powder mixed with Fire Opal, chocolate, and Copper.

Step 4: apply another coat of black ink and while wet apply your mixture of embossing powder and glitters.  If you are using large pieces (like the gear frames) you will have to work in sections

Step 5: heat set using your heat gun the attach to your layout

I am also entering this on the Lasting Memories challenge #487
