Blowing Bubbles in the Sky Layout for ***ScrapAndMe***!

Happy first of April lovely friends, 

Today we woke up with a layer of beautiful white snow on top of the trees, cars, gras & roof tops. But luckily it's melting again because it's very cold brrr. Today I have another layout to share with you all made with the beautiful "Afternoon Sky"collection from ScrapAndMe. I just love that collection but it's oh so hard to take a good picture because of the blue. 

Blowing Bubbles in the Sky: 

This time I made the pictures black/white my loves daughter blowing bubbles she wants to do it the whole day long hahaha. For this layout I used the pretty 5/6 sheet and cut it in half then I placed the opposite sides next to each other. But first I cut off one cm of the outer edge and stitched around it. Then I placed it on the 7/8 sheet. 

Before I placed the upper sheet on the darker blue sheet I cut out the middle part to matt my pictures & frames. Then I added waterdrop stamps and rub-ons randomly on my layout. After that I looked where I wanted to place my pictures and stuck them to my layout and now I could embellish it with a bunch of fussy cut pieces, flowers and butterflies. 

In the end I used some rub-on phrases, words on the frames and I finished it off by using some shimmer spray. I hope you enjoyed my work and I have inspired you to use your beautiful ScrapAndMe papers.

"Cherish That Wonderful Day Canvas" for ***2Crafty Chipboard*** & *Playing at Finnabair March 2022 Art Recipe*!

  Hi lovely friends, 

For today I show you some mixed media inspiration, this is a reversed eight by eight canvas with a picture of our Abbey and lot's of 2Crafty chipboard pieces. This time I used a different colour combination which is more my style.

Cherish That Wonderful Day:

2Crafty Chipboards used: 
 Fine Word Set 1
Lace Doily Frame
Frames Tiny Vivian's 
Square Leafy Frame Set
Corner Steampunk 6 Set

All the chipboard pieces are first treated with white gesso, then I added rust paste on them with the exception of the fine word "Cherish" that one was treated with liquid acrylic {nude}. After the rust paste was dry I added several different mediums on the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard pieces such as matte & metallique waxes, impasto paint & metallique acrylic paints.

The canvas was treated with tissue paper, then I added some paper texture paste on the outer side {the wood part} of the canvas when that was all dry. I placed another layer of tissue paper on the outer edge. It took a bunch of hours to let it all air dry before I could embellish it. 

With this canvas I will be entering the amazing Art Recipe on the Finnabair blog!
 I have used: Tissue Paper & Matte Wax

Products to choose from:  Jewel Paste, Chipboard, Matte Wax, Tissue Paper

The colours: dusty rose, delicate coral, light taupe.
