Hello - scrapbook layout by Lynn Good

Good morning - Lynn here today to share a layout I have created using the Cocoa Vanilla Collection  - Love Always.  This collection is just devine.  I have created a layout of my son and his girlfriend.

I have linked the products used on this layout at the bottom of the blog.

I started with clear gesso over the layout so when I applied the water colours they didnt soak into the paper.  I then used Matte Medium to lay strips of paper from the Love Always collection for a background.  On top of this I have used The Crafters Workship - Diamond stencil and texture paste. This how is looks so far

Excuse the photo - it was taken with my phone at night so has the light reflection on it.  You will see that at this stage I used some texture paste and stencilled the words Friends and Friendship.  This was hidden under my photo mat which I was ok with as the pink wasnt quite the right colour!

At this point I used Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals - T Bird Turquoise and Cotton Candy Pink for the background colours.

Here are some close ups:

I used Liquid Pearls - Petal Pink and Mint Green randomly around the layout.

I have used pieces from the Love Always collections to create the photo mat and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time Happy Crafting. 
Dont forget to check out the items I have used in the Store either here or on the product links below.

MFT Beary Special Birthday Water Coloured Background - Card and Video

Hi there - it's Linda here today and I'm having a blast this month 
playing with MFT's fabulous Beary Special Birthday Stamp Set.

For today's card and video I've created a bright water coloured background...

Check out the video here or in HD over on You Tube to see how my card came together...

Love the pretty shine of the silver embossing powder 
and the sparkle from the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Marker...

I hope you enjoy a fabulous Monday!

Happy with Angela

Hi everyone,
I really hope this works as I am at a retreat in the Hunter Valley with some awesomely talented scrapers and mixed media superstars... The inspiration is overwhelming and the creativity that some people have is awe inspiring. I am having a look around the room and WOW!!! Makes me want to buy everything and try everything!!! I am a Scrapbook Shops DREAM CUSTOMER!! I have been trying to use this weekend to catch up on my DT commitments and finish my PL December Daily 2015 and I can honestly say, 'retreat freeze' hasn't affected me so much this time (thank goodness)
I will link the products used for this LO and edit later with inlinkz as I am quite chuffed that I am actually able to do this on my iPad 😀

Well after all that patting myself on the back, I needed outside help to retrieve the photo from the iPad ( wasn't as easy as it sounds grrr)

Thanks for popping in ❤️
