I used several layers of papers, a doily and a tag to mount my picture.

A few pieces of Blue Fern Studios chipboard painted with acrylic paint, a couple flowers (the least amount of flowers I have put on a layout in a while!) some velvet flower tape I have had forever, and finally a few sequins.

Smile – Scrap Around The World February Challenge

I created this layout for the February Scrap Around The World Challenge.  I was inspired by the beautiful color combinations from this mood board:

The background was done with gesso, texture paste through a stencil, gellatos, stamping, and mists.

I used a few layers of papers, cheesecloth, flowers, twine and some epoxy dots.  And a feather dipped in glitter, which I think turned out so cool looking.

Twinkle – Prima February BAP

This is my kitty that appeared on our porch a few months ago.  We don’t even like cats, but she was so pathetic we let her stay, and surprise – we all like her now!

I used this sketch from Prima for their February Build a Page challenge:

Last post with these pictures 🙂  I just like them so much and all of the February sketch challenges are Valentines themed, so….

This layout is for the February sketch challenge at C’est Magnifique. I used the papers and a lot of the embellishments from their kit of the month.  Here is the sketch:

Magical – Blue Fern Studios February Sketch Challenge

Here is my layout for the Blue Fern Studio February Sketch challenge

The sketch had a valentines look to it so I used these pictures of my

daughter and  her boyfriend.

I made the background by first covering most of the page with gesso.

I distressed the edges with a distress tool, some tearing and an edge punch.  I then colored the background with gellatos and several colors of mist.  I used texture paste and a stencil, stamping, embossing,  washi tape, and some rub ons too.

Here is a close up of the texture

I colored the Blue Fern Chipboard (I love this stuff!) first with black chalk ink.

Then I painted over it with iridescent gel medium, and applied some random blotches of texture paste.  Finally I splashed on some watered down acrylic paint and sprinkled distress glitter over it all.  I think it gave it an interesting look.

I finished everything off with a floral cluster, some cheese cloth, a few resin pieces, a really cool looking big crystal brad and some pearls.
