"Awesome" Scrapbook Layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters


I've got a new page to share "Awesome"


Let's be honest (and feel free to leave me honest comments) - I just don't love this layout.
I started with an idea in mind and despite creating something I don't hate I just can't warm to this page.

Firstly I've used the

to create a striped background.

Then for some colour and texture I've added lots of "Fossilized Amber" Distress Crayon and splatters.



I added some stencilled texture to the background and smudged on some Distress Crayon "Fossilized Amber".

 

At this point, I'd chosen a cluster and added a doily - I think the doily was wrong.
It was too pretty for the MM background so I ended up messing it up a little, by tearing some parts of it away.

Still not happy with this page, I ended up adding some stamping and wood veneer pieces from Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection.

Bear Hugs

Hello there - I do hope you are all well after the rush of Christmas!  I have a cute little card here for you today, featuring the sweet koala from Reverse Confetti stamp set aptly named Bear Hugs!


I like the look of white layers on white, and this is what I've used again here.

Card stock:  white card cut 21 x 21cm, folded in half.  Square layer is 6.7 x 6.7cm.
Circles - 4.5cm and 4cm diameter, chopped off at the bottom.
Oval:  4.5 x 2cm.
Copics:  Koala - E02, E11, W2, W5, E33 - flower - Y17, Y38, YR07 with E33 in centre.
Paper: - Dotty paper is by MFT - dots and Stripes Sorbet 6 x 6" paper pack
Die:  tiny hearts cut with strip die from Mama Elephant Basic Set.

Stamp the image on white blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black and colour with alcohol markers.  Fussy cut out and pop up with foam dots.  Add Glossy Accents to nose.
Stamp a sentiment and cut it out - mount on foam dots.
Adhere focal image and sentiment on card and add tiny heart embellishments.

Send the card to someone who needs a hug:)

Thanks so much for visiting!

Reverse Confetti:  Bear Hugs  (I am sorry to learn that this stamp is not available since I created this card)  I'm sure you will find another little critter in your stash that the same design can be used for.
