Winter Cute by Tracey Thorne

This photo has been sitting on my desk with these Heidi Swapp September Skies papers for a little under a  year - I had planned to scrap them during the 4th of July Cybercrop last year but it just did not happen. I love the colours and they fit in with the moodboard embracing the peach and pinks.

Firstly I started with a base of white cardstock that I trimmed a little of the edges to make the page smaller than the standard 12x12 layout. I then started to add a lot of different water colours in tones of pink, peach & orange. I love how the mica and sparkle come through on the Lindy's products to add more warmth with pizzazz.  I got a bit crazy in the end and the next step had to happen.
I have used - Lindy's Cocklebells Coral, Alpine Ice Rose, Oktoberfest Orange. Brusho Gamboge & Vermillion.

I have then painted over the whole project with white gesso. I was unhappy with some of the formations and placements of my watercolours - it did not evolve how I had envisioned. After painting with gesso I placed a Kaisercraft floral stencil over and using a wet cloth and then paper towel I removed the gesso leaving the resist under the stencil.


I cut one inch strips of Heidi Swapp September Skies Light Spectrum and taped them around the outer border then I sewed them to the page.


After working out placement of the photo I added some stamping elements by using the Art by Marlene stamp set Mandala Tapestry. The photo stack was put together by using some Gold Tissue from Kylie - love using up my packaging when my parcels arrive, HS September Skies Stargazer and Alpine Rose printed cardstock. After placement of the photo I decided to add a little more depth and re-use the stencil with Liquitex Modelling paste

I have added some paper flowers and Prima leaves to the page and embellished with Tim Holtz Clippings stickers. I typed my journalling before adding it and using a  Fudeball pen to underline. The title was created using some old stock of HS chipboard alphas. I have added a flair and a little more stamping using the Kaisercraft tiny dot stamp.



I added a few watercolour splatters to the page to help finish it off. I'm very happy with how this layout has turned out. It has been a while since I have incorporated so many printed papers and flowers as I don't normally work with flowers. 

I hope you have enjoyed my take on the sketch and happy creating

Laugh...with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Scrapping Clearly fans!

It's Belinda here today to share my latest layout featuring some awesome product from the Scrapping Clearly store.


For this layout, I started by adding some interest to my heavy weight white cardstock background with a Vicki Boutin stencil and some heavy white gesso. Once dry. I spritzed with water and then dropped some colour into the water using the fabulous Prima Art Philosophy Concentrated Watercolour in the Truth colour. I picked up the layout and tilted it this way and that to play with the colour and let it move around the background.

For the next step, I added another layer to the background this time with some stamping. I used a couple of lids from around my desk that were the right size. I put a little of the Truth watercolour onto my craft sheet and then used the lids to stamp circles on my page.

I dried that off with a heat gun and then added some stamping using a Tim Holtz stamp with Jet Black Archival Ink.

I added some messy cotton thread, my patterned paper layers, photo, embellishments and title. For the title, I used a Heidi Swapp wood veneer word and painted it with three coats of heavy white gesso. I also added some white Posca Pen on top of that for an extra crisp white finish.

Here's what I used:
Heavy Weight Cardstock Marshmallow

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you are feeling inspired to grab your Scrapping Clearly stash and have a play too.

Enjoy - With Karyn Schultz!

  Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have a scrapbook page that I created using lots of fun products available at Scrapping Clearly
  In my latest DT kit I received this Heidi Swapp Stationary pack. It contains lots of fun tags, stickers, alphas etc. I used this pack, and its colour scheme, as inspiration for my page.
I started by sewing a rectangle on heavy weight white cardstock that I had cut down do 11" x 11". I later attach this cardstock to a sheet of Vicki Boutin Storyteller Narrative paper
 I gathered my other supplies to use on the page, this included Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Scrap FX cardstock embellishments.  
 On the white cardstock I used the Heidi Swapp Color Shine (navy, patina and citron) to create a background (painting with plastic and splatters).

 Here is my final assembled page.
Underneath my photo I layered tags from the Heidi Swapp Stationary pack and fussy cut embellishments from "Bold Blooms"  and "Flowery Bits" from Scrap FX

 The glitter alphas are from the Heidi Swapp Stationary pack.
 The enamel arrows and stars are from the Heidi Swapp Stationary pack.  The title is from Heidi Swapp chipboard word stickers

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Smile often, by Amanda Hartmann

Hello all and welcome to my Wednesday share!

Today I combined some lovely mixed media work with some of the amazing Vicki Boutin products.

Here is a list of the main products I used:

Here is my full page.

I stenciled the Prima Icing Paste through the Kaisercaft stencil. It was my first time using the icing paste and it went through the stencil smoothly and easily (nice consistency), and it dried smooth and not tacky at all. And great shine!

I layered the background on the Vicki Boutin paper. I added some Tim Holtz tissue paper, as well as some Vicki Boutin stickers/thickers.

To finish I added some Ink splatters and painting with Distress Oxide Ink - in Evergreen Bough.

Great shine in that Icing Paste! And I love this Rose Gold colour!

Thanks for looking today!

If the cap fits

Happy Tuesday everyone

Here's another layout I created using the colours from this month's mood board for inspiration.

I started with some Art Anthology dimensional paint through a few stencils.

Because I had a fair bit of paint left over on my stencil, I gave it a spritz with water and used the packaging technique to transfer some onto the background.

I still had a lot left over so I lay down some white card stock over my messy mat and picked up some more.   This will become the base for my next layout.

I matted my photo and added a few embellishments, using gel medium and a small paint brush to stick on the gold beads.

I painted my chipboard arch with black gesso and then stuck everything down.

Still plenty of time to give this month's challenge a go.   Would love to see what you create.

Products I have used include
Art Anthology dimensional paint (Velvet in Desire and Sorbet in Coral & Cameo)
Heidi Swapp stencils
tissue paper (Packaging from Scrapping Clearly)
13@rts gel medium
flowers, stamens & beads from my stash
