Watercolour, Cork and Sequins

Morning Friends!

I get these ideas sometimes… they come from seemingly nowhere and won’t leave me until I’ve made it into a tangible project.  This latest idea was to create a watercolour wild meadow with dandelion cut files on top.  I searched all the usual places and even asked my favourite designer if she had anything.  She had one but it wasn’t what was in my head!

So I doodled my own, took a photo and made it into a cut file.  It is not perfect, and it is NOT easy to get off the cutting mat but I got enough off to make it work for me…

I joined 3 together with a simple stitch and then got to work on my background.  I used my watercolour palette which is full of Daniel Smith watercolours.  A little experimenting told me the Azo Nickel Yellow and Kyanite Genuine mix together to make a wonderful green.  I added plenty of splatters – it’s my ‘thing’!

As I was looking through my sequin stash the colour of my cork embellishments caught my eye.  The went with the natural creamy-white watercolour paper and the hues of green perfectly.  I pulled out Wedding Bells, Strawberry Bubblegum and Cork Confetti in chevrons and butterflies.I get the rest very simple; the dandelion heads and painting were enough for me.  I added a simple layer of vellum to the photograph and chose a flair as my title.  I added a sprinkle of my sequins and a couple of butterflies.  I used the chevrons to direct the eye towards the title.

My Girl Baby Layout with Guest Designer Karla

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today, and I’m super excited to be Guest Designing here today- what an honor! Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made of my youngest daughter, Erica, when she was just a year old. Wow – time flies – she’s now almost 5!

I started off choosing a sketch and layered on papers and stickers from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock. I just love these lovely bright papers, and the pretty sequins from the Pinky Pie, Spring Blooms and Let’s Be Mermaids Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop were the perfect embellishments! I love using a sketch as a starting point, then choosing my photos, papers and embellishments.

These wonderful Cork Chevrons are so awesome for layering! I pulled out some paper ephemera diecuts from a My Mind’s Eye All Things Girl package to add to my layout. I love the vintage feel of these diecuts!

I used the tiny silver stars from the Pinky Pie collection on this pretty crown, which I layered over a sticker from the EP collection pack. I added some handwritten journaling and stamped the date with an Amy Tan date stamp. I love that a lot of the paper packs come with coordinated journaling cards in them. Even if I choose not to use them in a pocket page, they are great to use on a layout!

These sweet little flower sequins in the Pinky Pie Sequin Mix were just perfect to layer on the flower sticker. They are subtle and add a pretty shine! You can see some of the stitching that I added across my page. Erica was very excited to #1 – have another layout of her own baby pics and #2 – help me with the stitching!
