#elves - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!!

It's Karyn here, and today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of goodies from the Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush collection available in the Scrapping Clearly Store.

For my base I've used a sheet of white cardstock. I added some background colour using Prima Watercolor Confections and a painting with plastic technique underneath in the area my photo.

I've matted my photo on papers from the HS Pineapple Crush 12x12 paper pad along with a paper doilie.I also added long strips of the patterned papers across the page, underneath the photo.

In the top right corner of the photo I've added a gold pineapple paperclip, some Studio Calico wood veneer and a sticker from the Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane collection. 

To the bottom left corner of my photo I've added more Studio Calico wood veneer.

Along the base of the page I've added strips of paper (from the Pineapple Crush collection). I've created a title with gold glitter alphas. I've added some paper flowers and word stickers a sticker from the Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by

Simple Watercolour Cards

Hi there Scrapping Clearly fans! Today I am sharing with you some cards that I made at a Scrap Retreat that I recently attended.

It was another top weekend with great company, laughter, and great food.

These cards are really simple to make and I loved playing with the bright colours.

For these cards, I trimmed down three pieces of heavy white card stock to a standard C6 size. I have used black card stock as both a backing and backdrop for these cards. As I really wanted both the colours and the stamps to be hero here.

Here are some photos of each of the handmade cards.

For the cards, I used Jane Davenport Poppy Girl stamps. These were stamped with StazonInk in Jet Black. It is important to use a permanent ink when working with wet media to prevent bleeding of the shaped outlines.

I combined water with Dylusions sprays in Bubblegum Pink and Fresh Lime. I also used Distress Ink in both Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. This combination of wet media were used for both the background and the flowers.

Next I positioned the prepared flowers over Black Gesso from my stash that I swiped with a hog bristle brush.

For the splatters, I used Colour Blast Colour Spray in Roadhouse and My Mind's Eye enamel dots.

Finally, with a sentiment stamp from a scrappy friend's stash.. sharing is something we tend to do a lot on these retreats.

Oh, and on the black card, I used the gorgeous Pink Fresh Studio Alpha Stickers.

I am pleased with how these cards turned out - be sure to check out the products that I used online.

Thank you for popping by!

It's all Perspective - with Emma.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
Today I decided to create away from the mood board and go a little boyish.
I found this awesome image on Pinterest of this cute little guy who just happens to be a doll.
I love how much character he has.

How cute is he hey?!
So to start off, on this page I went a little different and went with using up some of my Tim Holtz Rubons. These are the Numbers ones.
Then I chose a couple of colours from the Distress Oxide reinkers that matched my papers, starting with Candied apple, I smooshed this over the background. dried it off and then went in with Broken China.
I loved that the ink just sat in and around the rub ons and made them really pop from the base sheet.

Behind my image I cut some tags out of a sheet from the Paper Arts collection, this one is called Psychedelic 1.
Making sure the tags  had pops of red in them to compliment the skateboard the little doll is holding.
In amongst those tags I free cut a sheet of Heidi Swapp die cut paper to add contrast and layers.

The chosen embellishments start with Some items from the Pink Fresh 'Escape the Ordinary' fabric die cuts.
Cocoa Vanilla flair and Some Pink Fresh block wood stickers.

The quotes are Tim Holtz Small talk stickers that always suit the mood.
Finally a flick of white ink and this page was done.
Love the feel of this finished page.

I hope you enjoy it too.
I hope you all have a great week and will catch you all again real soon.
Till then, Em xx.

Inspiration from our Monthly mood board

Hi Peeps,

What better way to spend a wet and stormy afternoon than with some paint, glue and an inspirational mood board.

I played around with ratio's of the above colours. 

An easy way to get paint onto a background is to just scrape it on with a palette knife.

A few of the bits I used on this journal page.
Check out the new stock from "Art by Marlene"

So the colour ratio in this one is purple main, blue secondary and grey accent.

The colour ratio in this one is Grey main, purple secondary and blue accent.

I just got myself the new Dina Wakely Collage Collective, soooooo awesome.

Ratio for this one is Blue main, grey secondary and purple accent.

I found this mood board extremely fun to play with. Hope you have a go to. Looking forward to seeing your projects.

Thanks for looking

{Get your Pour on}

Have you had a chance to play with Dina Wakley's Pouring Medium.........

Use Dina Wakley Media Pouring Medium to achieve colorful poured sheets, puddles, marble, and flow effects when mixed with Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints. 

Pouring Medium is non-crackling and dries to a satin finish without holding bubbles and allows you to write, stamp, and draw on your pours. 

Dina Wakley Media Cell Creator changes the density of your paint mixtures to create isolated variations in the colors, commonly referred to as “cells” in pours. 

Pour over various surfaces such as Media Board, journal pages, 
wood panels, canvas, and more.
