Happy Me by Tracey Thorne

 Hello to all the fabulous crafters out there and thank you for popping in.

I've taken two colours from this months moodboard for my project and I have dusted off the Minc for a bit of a shimmer on the layout too. It wasn't what I was planning on with the Minc but I'm happy to take the lucky accident for this one.

I started with a white page and using an old credit card swiped some magenta paint across the page. I have then started to stamp using thick foam stamps but decided against this ... instead I have then stamped fine circle images on the page using Art by Marlene stamps - Mandala Tapestry. I have then sewn a square in readiness for the photo.

I have used a 6 x 6 TCW stencil daisy chain -  with some Liquitex modelling paste and have allowed this to dry. I have then added some Minc reactive mist by splattering it in random places on the page. I have used the Heidi Swapp Pink Gold Ombre Reflective Foil through the Minc. I was not expecting it to adhere to the modelling paste but it did - so I got an added bonus with this addition to my page.


The negative to this will make a great addition at a later date to a journal page or another scrap page.

Now it is time to add the layers under the photo. I have used Heidi Swapp Foil Pocket Cards and Vintage Chic Notes. The white frame & scallop is a cutfile I have created. I have used some old Basic Grey undressed chipboard letters to help create the title which were coloured black and the word happy came from some Heidi Swapp chipboard stickers. I have added some fussy cut butterflies and a cute little fabric brad as well as a Prima charm. I have also added Glossy accents to the word me for a nicer finish.


As I layered the stack I have added a  little black cotton underneath and added some Tim Holtz elements rub ons and sticker words to help add extra interest and tell the story. My journalling was done on a typewriter and I have added a few diamontes on the page to help finish it all off.


I am loving the shimmer of this Ombre foil

Thanks for dropping by and I hope this has inspired you to dust off your minc to add a little more shimmer to your pages
