“At The Park” with Kira

Hey everyone!  I am super excited to be here as a guest designer for Spiegelmom Scraps!  I couldn’t wait to dive right in and play with all the pretty sequins!  Here’s a look at my first layout:

I started by cutting the word “Park” on my Cricut, in four different colors of pattern paper.  Then I color matched sequins for each letter.  I chose “Southern Blue Bells” for the blue, “Because You Love Me” for the pink/red, “Sunflower Fields” for the yellow, and “Out of this World” for the teal.

I used my watercolors to add some mixed media to my background.  Then I stitched each letter directly to the paper and stitched a straight line through one area on each letter.  The I used some glue to adhere sequins down the stitched line.

I tucked my photo right below the title (it’s my youngest, at the park).  And I finished off my title with some small white foam thickers.  I embellished the page by color matching to my letters, using the new Paige Evans colleciton, Pick Me Up.

Thanks for stopping by!

“Hello Sunshine” with Kira

Hey everyone!  It’s Kira again and I am back with another 12×12 scrapbook layout featuring some of the gorgeous Spiegelmom Scraps sequins.

I started this layout but piercing some holes in my paper, on each side.  Then I took some white embroidery thread, threaded it through one of the holes, through an assortment of “Rock a Bye Baby Girl” sequins and some of the wood grain sequins and then through a hole on the opposite side of the page.  I did this 16 times, and I looooooved the result.

After stitching my sequins, I adhered my photo directly on top of the thread.  I created embellishment clusters along the vertical line of my photo, using pieces from the Maggie Holmes Flourish collection.

I decided to add some more of the “Rock a Bye Baby Girl” sequins along the line of embellishments as well.  Then I finished my page off with some black splatters.

You can watch the entire process here.
