Take a Deep Breath- a Scrapbook Layout with Em.


Happy Weekend ScrappingClearly Peeps.

Hope you have been keeping cool if you're in Aussie land, and if you are in a land with snow and cool air
I hope your marshmallows are toastie.

Today I'm playing with an image that I got off Pinterest.
I have 2 boys who don't like having photos taken as often any more (I sneak some though),
which makes me source images from other places, Pinterest being one of them.
I find this also allows a different type of creativity on my pages.
This cute little fox looks so calm and at peace, it made me think of spring and a time of wonder.
I don't get to use flowers much so a pic like this allows me to be a little floral.

I started by choosing a couple of 6x6 pages from the Heidi Swapp September Skies pad.
And I also fussy cut out a section of flowers from one of the sheets, that I tucked up under the top left corner.


For the page base I started with good 'ole Gesso and Texture paste,
and then started playing with a couple of
Then a layer of Distress Oxide in Fossilized Amber.


Instead of using black to stamp, this time I used the Distress Oxides.
I used a couple of Kaiser stamps and also the flowers from the Prima Cling stamp.


I coated the Dusty Attic Chipboard arrows in Peacock Feathers Oxide ink.


Then finished off my layout with Liquitex Artist Ink Titanium white.


I have also made a video for this page.
I hope you enjoy it, I had fun creating it.
My eldest Son Jude has been creating music for my layouts which I love
as he gets a buzz out of this form of music creativity.

So even though I may not always have a photo of my boys they are always supporting me in some form of my art.


I'll catch you all again real soon.

Have a great weekend.
