Amaze Yourself - layout and VIDEO with Emma

Hi everyone,
Emma here with you all today, and I'm sharing a layout inspired by this months moodboard.
Feeling all the greens.....

And lets refresh ourselves with the moodboard.....

Such a beautiful selection of colours hey?

I prepped my cardstock with a coat of clear Gesso, then once dried I applied some Plaster paste in the area that the photo and layers were going to be placed.
Before I dried the paste I added a few mini art stones into it, then I dried to set.

Then came the colour. I started with Distress oxide in Twisted Citrus, then I added a Dylusions in fresh lime. Then finally as a contrast I added a green ink. Dripping down the page with each colour I used by adding water to it. You can see this come to life in my video that I've attached to this blog.

For the few layers under my image which I found on YouTube, I tore up a couple of the tear aparts in Heidi swapps book -  Lets Flamingle.
I tore 2 of them in half and then arranged in in a fashion under my image, I also found a couple of frames from Cocoa Vanilla Boys Rule ephamera pack, and added them in to the mix.

Once they were stuck down, I started to add my embellishments. The assorted chipboard has been painted with Distress oxides in the Twisted Citrus and Crushed olive I used for the title chippy, and the flowers were painted in the Fresh Lime acrylic paint.

In amongst the background I used a few of the Tim Holtz Life quotes rub ons, with key words being a feature.

Then I added a few of the Heidi Swapp Good Vibes Clear stickers in under my embellishments, and this layout was pretty much complete.
But not without Liquidex carbon black ink splats to tie it all in.

I hope you enjoy my video and I hope It has inspired you to join in with this months moodboard.


I'll catch you all again real soon, and until we meet again,
love to you all, Em xx
