Be a rainbow

Hi There,

I was feeling colourful and happy this week. Both my son and I share a birthday week. So we have a LOT of cake and adventures together. He is off to school this year so we are making the most of the last few months of just us! I made this layout for the Love challenge on the Gogogetaway facebook page.

I first made the background using a heart stencil and embellishment mousse and used the wrapper technique using different colours of distress ink. I used my silhouette to make the title elements and clouds. I got the large elements from a Flying tiger shop and just very simply layered my photo with primary colours.

I added a scattering of sequins, nuvo dots and vellum stickers to give it more colour and dimension, and finally I used some glitter glue to colour in the clouds.

I just wanted to make a fun layout with a cute photo. I hope you like it too 🙂

Travel page using ephemera

Hi there,

I’m bringing you a project I did recently of a travel page of a holiday I went on as a student to Dublin. I had a go at stenciling with gold acrylic paint and covered some in glossy accents to create a different texture. I have to admit that I’m not that good at it! I kept catching the edge of the stencil and making a mess but it was fun. I put a few blobs of nuvo crystal drops in a light yellow colour and waited for it to dry.

Where i’ve put the photo is actually the brochure/map from the Guinness factory, which is just a have to do while you are there, even though me and my friend both hate Guinness. What is amazing is the view from the tower at the top and the Guinness caramel chocolate bars which I brought for gifts and were eaten before we got back on the plane.

I added a few more photos and places for journalling inside but it folds out again to have information and a map of Dublin.

I layered a load of random embellishments from different collections but the main ones were from a sticker sheet from the Echo Park Getaway collection and I attempted to have a go at making a paper rose which turned out really cute!

Many Thanks for reading 🙂
