Hello Scrappy Friends and welcome back for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, we are being inspired by our October Guest Designer, Kelly Barron!! I was drawn to this beautiful, soft layout she created for Citrus Twist.
I began my layout with a piece of white cardstock trimmed down a 1/4″ all around and Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz. I used a stiff bristle brush and the dazzlerz as paint. The bristles of the brush in the texture paste created a great, textured brushstroke look.
While the dazzlerz were drying, I matted my photo on 2 patterned papers, one in a pink and the other in a blue, to tie in the colors in the photo. I added a delicate doily to the back for some more texture. I layered strips of pink floral and blue polka dotted papers for the right hand side of the page.
When the dazzlerz were dry, the photo was adhered with foam tape to the center of the painted area. I chose some floral ephemera and layered them around the bottom of the picture. popping some up on foam tape as well. I layered a tag and other ephemera pieces under the photo as additional layers, and a Blessed banner to the top left corner. Tiny tile stickers and more ephemera pieces created my title.
I created another cluster in the bottom right corner with the camera and floral pieces and added a tiny word sticker. The Morning Glow sequin mix was the perfect mix to add the right about of sparkle and shine to the page. I matted the entire layout on a light pink cardstock and stitched around the edges. My journaling fit perfectly in the flower clusters under the photo and all that was left was some splatters. I used Razzledazzle Berry and Blue Jeans Vibez to create them and I was finished!
I also have a process video for todays layout, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRPshui76_U
Thank you so much for joining me today and dont forget to stop by the shop for some of these amazing products!! And as always,
Hello everyone, Mandi here with my last post. This time it is an anniversary card that features May Arts Burlap String, Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz Texture Paste, Chunky Cork Hearts, Sunny Smiles, Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti and Gold Stardust Sequins.
I thought painting have of the hearts with the Dazzlerz was a great way to add a little extra wow. When the paste is wet apply the sequins. I just sprinkled them on to the surface and pressed them in with a stick.
I love who this card looks even when it is laying sown flat. The sequins on the top and the cluster at the bottom adds a lot of drama without the bulk.
Thanks for stopping by and having me as a guest for this month.
Mandi, here. Popping in to share with you a cute baby layout that features the May Arts Burlap String, Sea U in the Mornin’ Shimmerz Dazzlerz, Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz Texture Paste, Cloudy Days Felties, Chunky Cork Hearts and Gold Sequin Confetti.
I love to take bits and pieces to create a cluster which helps draws the eye in to the title area. As you can see here I have felties, cork, string and papers which adds a lot of texture without a lot of bulk, which takes up less room in albums.
To give the embossed cardstock this shine I applied a thin layer of the Dazzlerz. I came across a cool technique the Dazzlerz can be used in. It can exactly be used as an adhesive for foil sheets. Apply a thin layer of the paste to the cardstock, let it get to the tacky stage, maybe five minutes, rub the foil in the area you want and remove. You should be left with something that looks like this.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this fun technique in how to incorporated the Dazzlerz into your crafty work.
