12x12 layout by Lynn Good

Hi there, Lynn here sharing a layout I made using the 7 Dots Studio - Cotton Candy Dreams collection.

I began by placing cut up strips from the 6x6 pad and punching with a EK Success punch.  I then have placed them around where my photo mat would be.

I have them used Paper Artsy stamp - EKC07 and randomly stamped two of the stamps from the set around the layout.  These have been embossed with Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing Powder - Oakleaf Olive and Orbit Olive Gold.

I have then used Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals - Frosty Forest Green and watered down gesso and splattered around the layout. 

The Scrap FX chipboard has been painted with Finnabair Sparks paint - Unicorn's Hair and Fairy Wings.

I have linked the products used to the store below.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time Happy Crafting.

"Boy oh boy" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise - Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection

 Hi Crafters

Louise with you today.
I have been very excited about this new collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock".
I love a good "Boy" collection - Lots of neutrals, patterns and the embellishments in this range, make it perfect for the men in your life - both big and small!

Today I've started with backing a cut-file with some of the patterned papers in the collection.

Here's the final layout.

"Boy oh Boy"

I chose my photo based on the colours of this collection - Blue!

I decided to add a little mixed media to the background and first painted on the 
"Cornflower blue" Nuvo embellishment mousse followed by the "Aquamarine" Nuvo embellishment mousse through this fabulous stencil!

Other elements on the page are some of the die-cuts, stickers and some cotton.

You can see the process to complete this page in this video.

Thanks for visiting.
