Garden of Dreams - Creative Embellishments

 Hi everyone! I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today sharing a flower garden inspired layout.  It's been cold and rainy here the last few days and I wanted to create something bright and colorful.

Papers are from the Stamperia Garden of Promises collection.  Love all the beautiful flowers on the background paper.  All chipboard was treated with a variety of paints.


I used a frame from Mini Frames for the title piece.  I painted the frame with Deco Art Fawn paint and dabbed it with Deco Art Raw Umber paint.


Two types of flourishes were used, Flourish Set 10 and Flowers and Fronds Corner painted with Deco Art Aloe paint and dabbed with Folk Art Thicket paint.


I used a piece from Chapel Windows, painted with Deco Art Fawn and Raw Umber paints.   Lots of fussy cutting flowers and butterflies.  Beneath the window and flourishes I used a piece from Ornate Gate Set of 2, painted with Deco Art Fawn paint and dabbed with Deco Art Raw Umber paint.


Love the details on the chipboard, by simply adding paint.

I hope I've inspired you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Timeless - Creative Embellishments

 Hi everyone! I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with a vintage/steampunk layout.   Lots of chipboard from the store used on this one.  I really enjoyed the creating process.

Papers are from Blue Fern Studios Life's Vignettes paper collection and Craft O'Clock Lovely When You Smile collection.  Absolutely love the vintage papers from Blue Fern Studios.  Lots of fussy cutting and layering!  


I used a piece from Large Gear Frames at the base of the layout.  I applied a coat of dark brown paint.  Once dried, I dry brushed with some linen and gold paint.  Resting on top of the gear frame I used a piece from the Gear Flourish Corner, treated with the same paints, but added some purple and blue paint. Behind the girl image I used a piece from Distressed Clocks.


I wanted to add some blue to blend in with the flowers.  I used a piece from Frond Set 1 along with Flourish 17.  I inked both pieces blue and dry brushed using brown paint.  I added pieces from the Distressed Chicken Wire Border, painted with linen paint.


To the left of the girl I used a piece from Large Gear Set, painted with the same colors as the Gear Flourish Corner. Beneath the large gear I used Flourish 7, inked blue and dry brushed with brown paint.  I added some lace doilies and blue foliage from my stash  for the finishing touches.




Thanks for stopping by!

In Love With You - AB Studio

 Hi everyone!  I'm back today sharing another layout create for AB Studio, using the In Love With You collection. Truly, a beautiful collection!  Love the colors and designs on the papers.

Lots of layering using the Die Cuts Ephemera, ID-55 and ID-56.  The flowers are gorgeous! I used Stencil ID-368 a clock on the base of the papers along with grey paint.  Once the paint dried I dry brushed with some white paint.

Here are a few close ups:

Welcome To Wonderland - AB Studios

 Hi everyone!  Hope all is well with you.  Today I'm sharing a layout created for AB Studio.  I had a lot of fun working with the Follow The Rabbit paper collection. If you love fussy cutting this collection is perfect.

I used Stencil ID-375 on the background paper along with some black ink.  I added some paint splatters with white paint and from there I built up the layers.

Here are a few closeups:

Live Your Dream With Passion - Creative Embellishments

 Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with this vintage layout.

Love the beautiful design and colors in the Craft O'Clock Love Me Forever collection.  I paired the paper with several chipboard pieces, building up layers.  All chipboard was treated with paint.


I used Arched Doors Set 2 on the base of the layout, along with Scroll Border 2 and Flourish 14.  I painted the chipboard with Folk Art Dove Grey paint and dabbed it with white paint.


The Craft O'Clock vintage photo rests on top of 2 chipboard pieces, Heart Motif and Heart Dangle 2.  Both pieces were painted with Deco Art Blush Pink and Folk Art Ballet Pink paints. Nestled in the layering are pieces from  Wild Florals Set 2 inked with Versa Magic Petunia Chalk Ink and dabbed with white paint.  


Flourish 15 was inked with Versa Magic Pesto Chalk Ink and dabbed with Folk Art Succulent and Villa Green paints.  On the right of the photo is the Scroll Border 2.


To finish off the layout I added some flowers and splattered light brown ink of the background paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Side by Side - Creative Embellishments

 

Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today sharing a vintage layout featuring lots of CE products. I've been in the process of what seems like a never ending task of reorganizing my scrapbook room.  I'm amazed at what I've purchase and forgotten that I had.  


I'm quite the fan of Craft O'Clock and have used several of their collections on my projects.  I came across some papers from their Hazy Street collection and created this vintage layout.  I've used several CE products on this layout, chipboard, stamps and a stencil. I used the Damask Stencil on the background paper along with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distressed Ink, along with 3 stamps from the store, Distressed Script StampDistressed Checkered Stamp and Distressed Circle Stamp and Tim Holtz Ground Espresso Distressed Oxide Ink.  Lots of layering with papers and chipboard.  I had a lot of fun with the treatment on the chipboard, using ink and paint.


The center of the layout features a vintage photo from  Finnabair's Vintage Photo Booth Sticker Book,  resting on top of  a piece from Damask.  I paint the chipboard piece with some Americana Sea Grass Paint and dabbed it with some Americana Bittersweet Chocolate paint. 


Beneath the photo I used a chipboard piece from Wavy Film Strips, inked with Ground Espresso Ink and dry brushed with Folk Art Cinnamon paint. I added pieces from  Lace Border 5 beneath the film strip and resting on top of the film strip is a piece from Distressed Checker Pieces.  Both pieces were inked with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink, dabbed with Cinnamon paint and dry brushed with Sea Grass paint.


Here's s view of the right side where I've included a piece from Distressed Clocks, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink and dry brushed with cinnamon paint.


At the base of the layout is a large piece from Distressed Clocks.  Resting on top of the clock piece I used pieces from Wild Flourishes and Moth Set.  I inked the pieces with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink and dry brushed them with Sea Grass paint.


Tucked beneath the layering is a piece from Filigree Corner Set 1, inked with Ground Espresso Distressed Oxide Ink and dry brushed with Sea Grass paint.


The bottom features another piece from Filigree Corner Set 1.
