A whole new world

Today is Saturday, and I come to you with a new page from the set in November “joie de vivre”. And again on my daughter page). This year, she went to live in Thailand, and in front of her new life. I had to buy my princess motorcycle helmet LOL … I just opened one of his photos in the Instagram, but I did not use the entire picture, I cut it on a motorbike through the contour.

And I created a landscape of artistic means. Let’s see what happens)).

For the background I used a sheet of paper from Prima and  Gesso Bad Girls Couture from  a set of November “joie de vivre”. Then I did some texture work, using my favorite stencil and plaster Couture Girls Bad . I gave some time to completely dry.

I added a little metallic luster, I just picked up the wax and put it on the surface texture background. I liked the texture and even the smell  Metallique Wax))) from Prima. 

I would like to mark the outline of the road, have I had a lot of ideas, but they were all rejected))) And wax came to my aid, I drew the road and cut it out of the paper. Then I put it in the background and outlined the contours of togo  Metallique wax. Old silver has the effect: we seem to see the road, and it does not seem to exist. …. It seems to dissolve this in mind!

To make your project more beautiful, I’m an alcoholic ink and played with them a bit. I like to meditate with alcohol inks. I like the way they are laid out on paper. You do not know what you’ll see in a moment, and it’s interesting.

I love my assistant plotter, I cut out a lot of palm leaves from green patterned paper. I tore some strips of green paper. Then I stained the edges slightly. so that no white remains.

With the title, I also helped plotter, first I cut out of black paper. Then I set the premium and cut terracotta paper.

To give some texture to the leaves, I used hot stamping. I just splashed water and sprinkle it with a transparent powder. She baked small raindrops on the leaves. It looks really cool!

Thank you for being with us today! Creative weekend!

Forever- A Vintage Layout with Fussy Cutting

Happy Friday, friends!

Today, I have a layout to share using the amazing November scrapbook kit, and a simple tutorial for using some cut outs. The Prima Marketing Zella Teal paper in the kit is out of this world beautiful! I love the paper with the rose pattern, so I decided to fussy cut nearly the entire sheet. On the other side, there is a vintage map print, so I used both sides for my project. I knew I wanted to use one of the large circles and one of the small ones, so I cut those out first, then turned the page over and fussy cut out a lot of the images so I would have a lot to create my design. I used nearly every image on the paper!

Because I planned to use the background paper you see in the picture, I wanted to add some definition of the flowers, so I added some black chalk ink to the edges.

This picture below is an “in process” design as I was trying to see how I wanted to place the fussy cutting. Once I decided on placement, and took a picture, I was ready to remove all of the elements for gluing down.

To add dimension and ease of placing the fussy cut images, I wanted to “pop up” the globe. I COULD have used foam adhesive squares, but that would have been a lot of squares- and cardboard is better because it’s quicker, not to mention, FREE! I added double-sided tape to a piece of cardboard with plenty of room underneath to place the fussy cut images, and also support the size of the Prima Marketing resin frame.

And, here’s the end result:

I added some script stamping with grey pigment ink around the flowers. (I also added some extra flowers from my stash to coordinate with the beautiful flowers from the kit.)

For the smaller circle, I added the smaller Prima Marketing resin frame, and used some of the Prima Marketing wax to highlight the features of the frame and tone down the bright white. The cute little tag was left over from the October Bad Girls Couture kit, so I used it, and added some number stickers from my stash for the year.

I popped up the photo a bit by adding some vintage blue lace trim that was also from a past kit- the October mixed media kit- the blue tone was perfect for these Prima Marketing papers!

I also added a title from my stash, as well as some lace and scroll for added interest on the right side of the frame.

Flip it and Reverse it…REPURPOSE!!

Time to remix and repurpose!  This is always a fun challenge for me, I love turning something intended for one thing or even intended for trash, into something wonderful and new!  Today I’m gonna share a fun flip frame with you that I created with the large resin Prima frame.

From the moment I got the kit I tinkered with this flip frame idea, I think the frames were my favorite part of the kit.  But in order to make it a proper functioning frame, it needed something to adhere it to and stand it up.  Once again I turned to my handy dandy scrap wood pile (have you guys started a scrap pile yet LOL).  I found this great old pallet board that was already nice and weathered and cut down to the perfect size and even had two holes at the top where the nails were.

I used those holes to pass a small piece of the lace from the kit and make a sweet little knot.   It needed a little embellishing and being that I’m a jewelry maker at heart I used those pearls in the kit to make some faux mini hat pins with some jewelry headpins from my jewelry stash (you can grab these on any hobby isle).  I just threaded them on and secured them with a little bead of hot glue.

Next I lined up where I wanted my frame and glued it in place.  I went to my junk drawer and gathered a couple of brass cup hooks (you can get these at the hardware store or the hardware isle) and just screwed them into the soft wood.  This is perfect for flip pages.   All that was left was the pages.

Just holding the paper up to the frame I measured how big the pages needed to be and made a template with where the holes needed to be.  Lining it all up was the hardest part but once my template was done I just punched all the holes at once with my crop a dile punch.  I did use a pair of pliers and slightly bend the hooks almost closed so the pages won’t easily come off completely.  For a finishing touch I rubbed a bit of the Prima silver metallique wax over the entire frame to add a bit more silver.

It was really an easy and fun project that you could use for lot of different uses, photos, a mini calendar, birthdays, quotes, scriptures, you name it!

Full Of Color Layout

 

Hello Bad Girls,

For my Color Splash posting I wanted to share this beautiful paper called Welcome to Paris from Prima Marketing. I loved the reds and yellow tones in this collection and thought the picture of my niece Erin would be perfect for me to create with this paper collection.

I knew I needed to make the layout colors stand out so I needed to find a color that will make it pop…….and I choose black as my accent color. Using my Fiskars boarder punch I started creating a lot of strands of scalloped edges. I then cute stripes of the paper collection and started gluing the borders to then.

Once I had safely glued all the pieces to my layout, I started to look for the finishing pieces to tie it all together. These beautiful flowers in this month’s kit are from the Zella Teal collection by Prima. As I added them to my page I felt like I still was missing something so back into my stash I went and found these canvas adhesive letters and painted them to match the flowers.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by…….Always, Michelle Rossibell

Fussy cutting- this is one crabby layout

Hi everyone! This has been such a fun kit to work with. I’ve been doing a lot of fussy cutting lately. I love looking through my patterned papers for fun little patterns to use as die cuts on my projects. It’s super easy to do and it helps me save money on embellishments! Most of the time, I cut the patterns out using a pair of scissors, then I use foam squares to adhere them to my projects.

This layout has quite a bit of fussy cutting and lots of layering. I cut the tag from the cut-apart sheet to help frame my photo. The crab, celestial sun, boat and “the seashore” word flag were all cut from patterned paper. I stamped the “love this” rectangle onto patterned paper then cut it out using scissors to add another layer to the photo. The green and brown paper behind the photo is actually the packaging from the Prima flowers that I decided to recycle onto the layout! I am all about recycling… My husband thinks I am nuts… I may be… just a little nuts and crazy, but a fun one! haha

Since this is a beach layout, I added some torn paper at the bottom to make it took like ripped tides…

I cut the “Remember” title using my Silhouette Portrait to complete the layout. This is as about a junked up I could manage considering I tend to be more of a simple scrapbooker. 🙂 I hope I was able to inspire to try fussy cutting on your next project. I find that it can be very therapeutic!

 

Thanks for visiting today!

Inspiration with Love

Hello everyone. Irina here, and today I have a something special to share with you. November Main Subscription Kit inspired me! This set is great, I love Prima products. I made this art object with a photo of my daughter. 

The design is a deer horn made of cardboard. You can draw them on a piece of cardboard or print out a template and circle with a pencil, like I did!The base is made of two layers: the first is the horns made of cardboard, the second layer is made of patterned paper with a pattern of wood.

 

In a rich set of November we have a  Art Alchemy Metallique Wax by Finnabair for Prima Marketing. Beautiful, metallic, wax-based paste which will turn your artwork into a real treasure while adding amazing, rich, metal-like finish to most surfaces and elements. Great for applying with your fingers and sponges. Perfect for adding color and finishing touches to home décor projects. Metallique Wax has a permanent finishing cover giving you great, color-filled, shiny results on dark and light backgrounds. It’s very cool to have in the set this Metallique Wax.

 

I like to have a headline in my work, it decorates and fills my project with meaning. I used the title “Love” from the chipboard.This title is very suitable for this photo))) LOL

 

I used Super Gesso to paint the chipboard in white.Premium white Gesso from @Bad Girls Couture has an excellent consistency and a beautiful white color. You should definitely try it in your projects. I always use sponge, for such work.

 

Elegance and splendor of my project is attached to pearl beads from @Blue Moon Beards.This is a great set of beads. Beads have different shapes and I can create different decorations from them! I collected 4 pendants and it looks very nice in my project).

 

The main decoration is of course the flowers from Prima. They want to admire and hide them in a box and protect))))) I created a composition from a plaster Shabby Chic frame and flowers from Prima Marketing Inc., it turned out great! I made two songs, one for the center and the second for the edge. It is important to glue the frames well, they are quite heavy and should hold tight. I hope this Art object my have inspired you today. Thank you for stopping by!

The November set will certainly inspire you as well as me! With you was Irina) Inspiration friends!

Vintage Layout Using 7 Gypsies Paper

Hello, Baddies!

Today, I’m sharing a vintage style layout using some of the beautiful, timeless 7 Gypsies papers from the November scrapbook kit.  7 Gypsies is my go-to paper for all things vintage- the patterns are unique, yet classic, and will always give you the worn-out beautiful look that makes your projects look ANTIQUATED!

Here’s my layout:

 So, I used all 4 sheets of 7 Gypsies paper from the kit- the background page is perfect as is- the only thing I did to this paper was give it a light white-washing of watered down Bad Girls Couture Gesso (This gesso is perfect- you NEED IT!).

I did the same to the black patterned paper- minimal white washing for a slightly more distressed look to tone down the dark- it’s a small detail that adds so much to the composition of nearly any vintage project.

I cut out some bricks from one of the pieces of paper to tuck under the flower clusters- I distressed the pieces, then inked with black chalk ink for added definition.

I also cut out a frame using one of my favorite Sizzix dies, and made flowers with the tan and red polka dot paper.

I also white-washed the flowers with the gesso- the red flowers are from my stash, but could easily be made by hand, which I WAS going to do with the leftovers of one of my projects with the red Prima Marketing paper from the kit, but I MAY have accidentally thrown it away! 🙁

Behind the flowers, I used some pieces of an old applique I had. I love the look of using fabric and appliques on vintage projects. I knew it would be a good fit for this layout, but when I was working on my design, I noticed that the applique was the same shade as the lace trim from the kit, so I colored the applique pieces with some pigment powders.

The Prima Marketing peridot rhinestones from the kit were the perfect accent for the frame, which really ties the green from the applique and the papers all together. I cut up the cup chain to add the rhinestones in different sizes individually to highlight the die cut frame.

Lastly, I added a title and a heart locket from my stash to complete the design.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and taking a look at my layout! Be sure to grab a November kit from the SHOPPES, if you haven’t already!

#Freemoment

Good morning and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Before, I head out to moms to enjoy my Thanksgiving dinner, I would like to share a layout with you. I did not realize how much of the November Kit I had left… I was in the mood to scrap so I pulled out my scraps and just started scrapping; for me… for fun! Edward was in school and I had off. It was wonderful! LOL He wanted to play hookie and stay home with mommy, I told him, “no, you got to GO!”

I love teal and yellow together… I know it’s a weird combination, but for the longest time, my scrap room included these colors. Anyway, here’s my layout. I wanted to make it a little funky so I added the Hambly Screen Print from the October kit! I save my scraps to re-use because you just never know when you’re gonna need them! Hence, don’t throw away your scraps.

I used different scraps of patterned paper to add to the funkiness of this layout. Then I fussy cut the flowers from the Prima Paper to use as part of my frame. Also, I tore a piece of cardboard from the flower pack to help save some trees!

Here is a closer look at my journaling at the bottom of the layout.

So, where are you eating today? Who’s cooking? Try not to stuff yourselves… LOL… I know, it’s very hard to do. Thanks for visiting today! Be safe!

Making a Splash…A “Colour Splash”!

Happy Hump Day peeps!!  What better subject matter to share on Colour Splash than a journal about ship life?!  Get it?  Splash…ok that was bad…moving on.  LOL!

Ok, so the reeeeeeasonn I am sharing this for Colour splash is not exactly for the irony, although it I though it was genius…I didn’t realize that till after!  I’m sharing this with you today because I mixed colors in this project that I probably wouldn’t normally think to put together.  Honestly, I really went for it and mixed really victorian florals with really retro looking graphic prints and that’s not something I would normally do either.  I didn’t realize it till I started flipping papers around and mixing the companies together that this kit really lends it self to some awesome color mixing that pushed me out of my norm, which was really fun on this journal!!

The Cover was made with two different papers in the Prima “Welcome to Paris Collection” and accented with cut outs from the Prima “Zella Teal Collection” and the Prima “French Riviera Collection.  I really love how the nautical feeling of the “French Riviera Collection” set the tone for the “Ship Life” theme of the journal that will establish what will be my cruise journal and the flowers of the “Zella Teal Collection” give it a very victorian and feminine feeling with beautiful metallic touches of silver.  I carried the metallic silver touches over to the paper Prima flowers with the Metallique wax that was in the kit (which is divine by the way).  To also give it some texture and pizazz I scrapped some Bad Girls Couture Gesso along the bottom of the cover and adhered some gold corse glitter to the wet gesso.  I love that it kinda looks like sand but more glamorous;)

I added a couple pockets on the inside cover to hold some little journaling cards and tags I cut out of the Prima “French Riviara Collection” paper.  Also, since the back of the paper I used for the cover was a bright burgundy with a pattern that I didn’t think went well with the rest of the project, I used a thin coat of the Bad Girls Couture gesso to cover and distress it, along with a little swipe of my brown stamp pad.  Worked out pretty well.

Finally I just cut some plain white paper to size and folded it in half to fit inside, punched two holes in the spine and ran some elastic (you could use string or ribbon) and tied it together to bind it.  I like the idea of elastic because it gives a bit if I want to add some memorabilia like folded brochures or tickets later.  Then just tied a bit of the scrap lace from the kit to the top of the elastic binding.

It was such a fun project to play with mixing colors and patters.  Now y’all go splash into your kits!!
