Pink clouds

Good day my creative girls! Today I want to show my most airy page !!! How do you like this pink fantasy? Sometimes I’m asked to remove pink glasses))) Yes, yes! I like to dream!   In the photo, my daughter and she is a big dreamer! This patterned paper – Garden Club from  February Kit is my love! I immediately chose him as my favorite))) And even it was a pity to cut it, but he inspired me! I rarely make pages of this format. but the composition of the balls and basket was stretched vertically, this determined the choice of the format of the page. At the edges I made two strips from another sheet. They also create an additional vertical.

I really liked the February kit! I love stickers of  Chipboard Ephemera and Words (Gold Foil Accent): American Crafts. This mix set is simply gorgeous. in it there are inscriptions and birds and frames and hearts))) all that we love so much girls!For the basket I used the second part of the sticker. This black frame had a strange shape and I cut it into two parts. The first part I used in my work with Celenge. And the second is now for the basket)))) The title in the page is very important: it sets the meaning of the work, tells something about its design, but at the same time it is a decorative element.

This page is very simple, the balloons I made from Vellum. I have a balloon knife and I used it, but such balls can be cut on a plotter or simply with scissors. The usual pen with black color I drew the strings for the balls. Small hearts from a set of stickers decorated with balls added to the work of additional volume.

I wish you a rosy mood and creative inspiration! I hope you liked my page and it will inspire you to dream! Until early meetings in the blog of bad girls)))

Family

Good morning! Happy Monday! I have another bright and colorful layout to inspire you with today. I used this image from Pinterest. I love white, teal and orange together and there was plenty of it in this month’s kit so I had fun with it!

For the background, I used the watercolor paint from the September kit. Once the triangles were dry, I took the blue watercolor paint and tapped the brush all over the paper to create a fun, colorful background for my layout.

Here is what I came up with. Lots of layering here. Initially, I was going to paint the white “family” thicker, but decided to leave it white. I think I have enough color on this layout, what do you think?

I used the same ribbon technique as last Monday! Totally, fun.

Here are some close-ups:

I cut the heart from the patterned paper and painted it with blue watercolor to use as an embellishment for my layout. I think it frames the photo nicely with the felt flower and button.

Here is a closer look at the painted triangles. Don’t they look cool? I think I need some more of these 12×12 stencils by Prima!

Playing with Screen Prints

Hi everyone. I am back with another layout using the fabulous October Bad Girls Couture Kit. When I first saw the Hambly Screen Print, my eyes immediately went towards the big oval frame. So, naturally, I thought of something to use it for… a frame of course! I simply used scissors to cut out the image then used my tape runner to add some adhesives to the corners behind the black. You can staple transparency to the layout as well… that is what I usually do.

I added a few sheets of the tin foil to decorate the base of my layout. Then I added a strip of patterned paper and transparency. I hand-cut the postal image to use as a die cut for my layout. The “Good Times” banner was created using a roller stamp and an image cut from the Prima paper. I used a marker to color it lime green to pull the green from the leaf of the flower.
I hand-cut the cupids from the Prima paper then used a pink marker to color in the heart. Then I used a foam square to pop the image off the page. I added the gold heart to the center of the heart from my stash. I tucked one of the antique tags at the top right-side of the photo mat.
I used a few stamps at the bottom to help tell my story as well as my own hand-writing.
I painted the “Happy” laser die cut (by Creative Memories) with the Gold Glimmer Glam paint and Twinkling H20’s.

Me & You

Hello everyone. I created this layout for Bad Girls Couture using the September kit. Today, I want to share with you, how I created this fun, colorful layout. The Twinkling H20’s are so vibrant on this layout. It just screams fun!
Before, I started doing anything with this layout, I coated the white cardstock with gesso and let it dry overnight. Once dried, I splashed the pink Twinkling H20’s onto the cardstock. I used a black Sharpie to draw a 1/2″ border around the layout.
I coated the chipboard alphas using the gesso. Once dry, I splashed blue and pink watercolor paints on them and let them dry.
I matted the collage of photos using a few pieces of patterned paper then I hand-cut the hot air balloon and photo corners from the Crate Paper and colored them using markers.

I recycled the packaging from the Crate Paper embellishments to use as a fun border for the bottom of my photo collage. Since I was running low on embellishments, I stamped flowers onto patterned paper then used scissors to cut it out. I used a foam square to pop it up off the page. Also, I painted the Prima flower using the Twinkling H20’s so that the flower would blend in more with the layout.

Playing with Watercolors with Elena

Hello everyone

I am very happy to share my very first post made for Bad Girls Couture kit.

Well, this was fun to wok with the watercolors paints, exactly Twinkling H2O’s. Their colors are vibrant with a slight shimmer. All you need is to add the water to them and leave for 15 mins to set.
Then you enjoy mixing the colors.

I started with cutting out the vines from the paper sheet, they coordinate will with the IOD paper sheet ready to color.
I also cut out the castle from the embellishment package- don’t forget to use the junk , it will save you some money.

But my main focus was the soap bubbles. I used the photos of my youngest son, he played with the soap bubbles in the square. He was surprised how large they were. So I took several shots of him and decided to stretch the soap bubbles from the picture into my my background

I mixed almost all the colors that goes in the set for the kit. and I like how colorful they are.
I partly drew the bubbles and partially colored the rhombs

I’ve added a few paper layers , not large and added the chipboard alphas, they repeat the rhombus pattern and match the colors perfectly.

To make it look more festive I added the tickets with the golden foil. It works great as a title and the embellishment too.

Recycling trash into a beautiful mini album

Hello everyone. I have a fun mini album to share with you today. I used Bad Girls Couture’s September kit to create this adorable mini. As soon as I saw the adorable Carnival patterned paper from Crate Paper and popcorn bag, I knew exactly what photos I’d use to create a cute little mini album. I took several photos last year at the fair and never really scrapped them. This is nothing new for me. Sometimes, I’ll hold onto certain photos until I have the right papers and embellishments to scrapbook them. I do not scrapbook in chronological order. I scrapbook photos that inspire me at that moment.
I am an avid re-cycler. I recycle anything I have at home so that it doesn’t need to go into the trash. It makes me feel like I am helping our community! My husband just shakes his head at me. Having said this, I hate throwing away pretty packaging. This month, I decided to re-cycle the packaging from the embellishments into a cute little mini album cover or insert. I used the packaging to trace onto the patterned papers to create my insert pages so they were the same size then cut them out using a pair of scissors.
I tore the Bingo Card in half to use with on a layout last month so that I could use it on more than one project. I like to stretch my embellishments as far as they will go.
I painted the Twinkling H20’s onto the paper by Prima Marketing Inc. using the Sea Spray and Playful Peony watercolor paints. This is such a pretty color combination. These paints look so vibrant once dry. I am thinking I am going to need lots more of these Twinkling H20’s.
Once I had my pages cut down, I punched a hole at the top of each page then used the ribbon from this month’s add-ons to bind the album together.
I used the tickets throughout the mini album to keep a nice balance between the pages.

 

I cut the puffy word sticker in pieces to stretch it out.
What do you think? Are you inspired to create a mini album of your own?

Dream

Hello everyone! I have a layout to share with you today created with gorgeous September 2017 Scrapbook Kit “Hurry, Hurry, Step Right Up”. Today is Tuesday and this time for Colour Splash! I took a white sheet of paper and created a background with Twinkling H2O’s.Sea Spray and bright Bougainvillea colour created watercolor stains for the background.

Twinkling H20’s are simple to use. The surface of the paint does require moistening prior to use, and the paints are easiest to use when the surface has been moistened and left to stand for a few minutes. Any standard paint brush can be used and the paints can be applied direct from the pot or after being blended. The colors  giving strong and vibrant colors, these can be blended with water for lighter shades.

Delightful sticker – Gold Puffy Words Maggie Holmes was perfect for this layout and photo of my daughter.
I added gold accents with foil. I love the shabby chic feel that is created when you use the Minc Reactive paint. Each brush stroke is emphasised within the foil.
Apply a small amount of Minc Paint to the brush and freely execute strokes on the background. After about a minute grab your foil and place over the paint and pull on and off. Repeating this as necessary until you have the desired look you want. Allow the paint to thoroughly dry now. Embellishments Crate Paper Carousel Clips, I posted on the photo.

It looks great, I really like how it looks.

Thirty-eight

Hi everyone. I am soooo excited to share this colorful layout with you! After I finished prepping the layout with gesso and it was dry, I immediately started painting the background using the orange and pink Twinkling H20’s. Once the watercolor paints were dry, I splashed blue watercolor paint on top of the pink and orange to make it more messy. I actually messaged Wendy the beginning stage of this project and said, “I hope this doesn’t look like shit when I’m done.” LOL… Have you ever started something and thought, “uh, I don’t know about this.” Sure, the idea in my head looked good, but getting it on paper is a bit tricky.

I am seriously loving how vibrant these watercolors are on this layout! Just a heads up, you may want to get some gesso before you start using these babies because it really helps prevent the paper from warping and it helps make the watercolors keep their color!

For the flowers, I used the ribbons from this month’s add-ons. LOVE THEM. Ah, they are so pretty and I am so lucky that I was able to play with them. Thank you Wendy! I forgot that I had these Glubers in my stash so I decided to pull them out. These adhesives make it so easy to create flowers from ribbon! It’s been awhile since I’ve made my own flowers so I though, why not since I had all of these pretty ribbons.
The Glubers are easy to use. Simply pull the top plastic off of the base. Then place the end of your ribbon to the center of the Gluber and twirl the ribbon around in a circle, pressing down every so often so the ribbon sticks onto the glue. Once you’ve covered the entire Gluber with ribbon, you might need to cut the ribbon and tuck it behind the flower.
Aren’t these flowers gorgeous? I am not normally a flower girl, but these ribbons had me thinking… and they look gorgeous against the orange and pink background. And since I love the orange Prima flower that came with the kit, I decided to use it. These colors look so vibrant against each other.
I  used stamps by Altenew to create the leaves for the flowers and I used the sentiments for my journaling. I was lucky that I had magenta ink in my stash! It worked so well for this layout. And because I am totally digging the chipboard, I used the number “38” which, now that I think about it, buy the time this post goes live, I will be 39, but Oh well.

I decorated the center of the flowers using enamel dots of different colors, sizes and shapes. They really makes the flowers pop. I painted on the Prima Coloring Paper and cut a piece out to mat my photo. This coloring paper is awesome! I used it on three of my projects this month, using bits and pieces here and there.
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope I was able to inspire you to use those Twinkling H20’s and ribbon (if you bought them) on your next project.
Have a wonderful day!
 

Dripping watercolor paints onto cardstock

Hello everybody! I am soooo excited to share my first project using Bad Girls Couture’s gorgeous September kit  I am loving the gold puffy stickers, Prima flowers and Twinkling H20’s. So naturally, for my first layout, I decided to play with all of the above. For this layout, I used this image from Pinterest as my inspiration. I really like how the paint drips down the image…

Pinterest Inspiration

Before I started dripping the watercolor paints down the page, I covered a piece of White cardstock in white gesso and let it dry over night. Once the gesso was completely dry, I added lots of water at the top of my Twinkling H20’s (Playful Peony, Sea Spray, Ancient Coin) and let them sit for 15 minutes so that the water soaked into the paints. Once the water set into the paints, I gently mixed the paints using a small paintbrush then I poured the paint down the page using each color. Then I started the process all over again so that I created several watercolor lines down the page.

I hand-cut the frame from the Prima coloring paper and painted it using the Ancient Coin and Sea Spray Twinkling H2O’s then cut it in half to use at the top of the layout. Since this is a 8 1/2×11″ the frame as a whole would have taken up the entire layout so I decided to cut it in half.

I printed two small photos to add to the frame and hand-cut the “Date Night” sentiment from the Crate Paper and tucked it behind the photo. Then I added the adorable metal clip with the hearts, the flower and puffy sticker! I love the vintage appeal of this layout. It’s so very pretty with the brown and blue with the touch of gold.

I stapled a piece of ribbon from this month’s add-ons at the bottom of the layout to create a fun border for the layout. I used a gluedot in the middle of the ribbon to keep it In place.

Here is the final layout. Seriously, this was such an easy layout to create once the gesso and paint dried. When dripping the paint down the page, down worry if it looks messy! That’s part of the charm!

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope I was able to inspire you to use your Twinkling H20’s this month because they are a lot of fun!

Be in the moment

 

Hi, Girls! Hope you have a great day today! It’s Irina back with you today with a new layout using the lovely september Kit.This layout is about me. Life can change in a moment, so we must appreciate every single day we are given.

I used some patterned – 7qypsies – Architextyres Collection on the background. This patterned paper looks great with my photo.

I placed my photo above the title and started embellishing. I cut out the headline and oak leaves from white paper. I love autumn colors and watercolors with a flicker effect! I used Twinkling H2O watercolors from the set to add color.

I used colors: Ancient Coin, Pretty Perido, Spiced Pumpkin. it’s hard for me to choose my favorite, this paint is gorgeous! Autumn leaves look like real. It looks very impressive!

You should experience it !!!

This was a lot of fun to create! I hope it gives you some fun ideas to try with your Kit! Have a nice day! Irina.

Between the leaves I put flowers from the fabric of Prim. I divided one flower into parts and added them to the mock-up. On the video you can see how I did it.

I made a video scrapbooking process. Pleasant viewing and creative inspiration of the girl!
