Hello and Happy Sunday!! This is Megan here to share my very first post for SpiegelMom Scraps. I am so excited to share this layout with you using some awesome products from the store!!
I thought it would be fun to do a weekly Scraplift on the Sundays that I post and for this first one I picked a layout I saw on pinterest posted by D’lish Scraps and made by Sue Plumb.
I absoluetly loved the layers and mixed media! It’s so gorgeous!
Here’s my layout with all of my little tweaks and personality thrown in:
I really love how it turned out! I wanted to make it my own layout so instead of using a stencil on the background I decided to use my purple Amethyst Heidi Shine and the packaging technique with some water.
I love this photo of a dog we had a long time ago. There was a little space to the right of the photo so I decided to put the title there and one of my embellishment clusters. Behind the photo I have a medium glassine bag that I spread ‘I Lilac You’ Dazzlers paste onto to get a cool effect on. I layered a 6×6 pattern paper from the Fancy Free collection behind that and then a large glassine bag that I spread ‘Coral me Crazy’ Dazzlers onto. I really like the texture the Dazzlers add to the bags!
I really wanted to use these Birds of a Feather Felties and I really liked the long skinny one that I decided to use to help ground my title. I clustered the others around and layered them on top of each other.
In each of the 3 clusters I put a little bit of twine from my Citrus Twist Kit that I used for this layout as well as yellow and pink sequins from the Hot Right Now Sequin mix, the cute little pink flowers from the Raspberry Daisy Dream sequin mix and in the cluster above I also included 3 hearts from the Hearts on Fire sequin mix.
My third cluster I put up in the top right hand corner with a cluster of banners and tags as well as sequins, a felt feather and a resign word piece.
Thanks for stopping by today!! You can find my process video below or on my YouTube channel here.
I’ll be back next Sunday with another Scraplift! I hope you have a great and inspired Sunday!
Hi Folks! Laura here today to share some recent ATC’s…
ATC’s – or artists trading cards – are usually small pieces of art (64mm x 89mm) swapped between artists. Rather than working on a small scale to begin with I work on a larger sheet to make my mixed media backgrounds. For me this is just playing with watercolours or Shimmerz, acrylics, modelling pastes etc until something starts to form. Then when I get an idea, I follow it!
This batch of cards use quite a few SpiegelMom Scraps products. In the background I have used some Shimmerz colourings and dazzlerz. My feature embellishment on some of the cards are the gorgeous Birds of a Feather Felties is Aqua/Blues and Green/Rust. And of course I cannot make anything without using sequins – I’ve used some from green machine and some from lucky charm.
Thanks so much for stopping by today,
Happy NSD! It’s Laura and I am interrupting the celebrations to share my regular Saturday post with you – but don’t worry – it is a layout!
I’ve been experimenting with the white felt feathers. I wanted to know if they would take colour – they do! I sprayed the feathers with water and sprinkled on some brusho powders. I needed a lot of water to get the colour moving but I love the results. Now I know I can alter any of the white felt shapes to any colour to match whichever project I am working on.
I dyed these ones to match my budgie’s feathers – yellows, greens and a little blue in the long tail feather. The different sized yellow sequins in the Spring Blooms and Sunny Smiles mixes match in perfectly. Other than that I kept it fairly simple layering each feather over a piece of cotton ribbon tape and stitching with my sewing machine to attach to the layout.
I added my alphas directly to my photo and popped up the top of each letter with a little silicone glue. I love the extra dimension this gives the page.
This also fits the criteria for my challenge to you over the weekend – scrap a layout with ribbon. If you do you can join us at SpiegelMom Scraps facebook page to link up!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello Chaps! Laura here to day sharing a mini canvas with you…
The canvas is around 10 cm square, so it’s quite a diddy little thing. Perfect for sitting on a desk or bedside table. It is packed with texture from the stencil work, the dimpled canvas, felt and sequins.
I pushed a thick layer of modelling paste through a stencil and then used water colour bars to add colour. I hand wrote a Bible verse and cut each word out individually. As it is stuck over the textured background it leaves lovely shadows adding depth to the piece.
I decorated with pink sequins and a gorgeous blue feather. In all it took 25 minutes of work to make – it was done in 5 minute sessions with drying time in between. Mixed media needn’t be big, messy, time consuming or scary!
I have used: Felt feathers and Believe in You sequins from SMS
Thanks for joining me today,
Hello SpiegelMom Scraps Fans! Ka here today to share two simple cards using the Birds of a Feather Felties!
I wanted these felt feathers to be the star in these cards, so I used only minimal supplies. The sentiments are from Mama Elephant Fair Feathers, which I heat-embossed in gold on acetate film. I blended Tumbled Glass distress ink behind the feathers to create a halo for visual interest.
I had so much fun creating these two cards and playing with the pretty feathers! You can pretty much use these feathers on anything, so make sure you go grab yours right now at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop before they are sold out! Here I used the Pink and Aqua feathers, but any color will work. Well, I hope you enjoy today’s dose of inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by!
