Hello my dear friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you, made with the beautiful ”Denim & Friends” collection.

I decided to use a paper again in blue tones combined with some beautiful flowers that was matching the photo I found on Pinterest perfectly. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used for my background the ”Stonewashed” paper and I made some layers behide my photo with the ”Blazer” paper using both sides of it.

I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and then, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray ”Blue Hawaiian Blue”.

I heat embossed the title with the ”Geranium Coral Blush” and the pieces from the ”Viney Page Frame” with the ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty, the flowers are Prima Marketing and the metal embellishments are Scrap-Unlimited.

To finish my page, I made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose one of my photo of the Chateau de Brissac (Loire Valley, France).

As usual, I primed the background with a clear gesso to protect the paper. Then I added a design with a stencil and a clear crackle paste. I let dry naturally.

In the meantime, I colored a few flowers and the leaves with different Twinkling H2O.

Oh, I love that collection!!! These papers are amazingly beautiful!!! Don’t you think?

I decided to use a paper in blue tones combined with flowers in earth colors that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the new paper collection Denim and Friends. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip to Porto of the Rabelos, the traditional boats of the Douro.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. I added a design with clear embossing powder and a stamp. Then I added another design with a stencil and the Platinum crackle paste. I let dry naturally.

I die-cut a few branches in a watercolor paper that I painted with a brown Twinkling H2O. I also cut a few papers to add under the photo.

When the crackle paste was dry, I colored the background with different Twinkling H2Os.

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com
