Colour Splash with Rich Colors

Hi friends!

 

It’s Rae with you today to share a layout with rich fall colors from the October kit. I pulled out all of the deep colors from the kit to create this layout. Of course all of these darker colors needed to be balanced, and the pinkish Prima Marketing paper with the watercolor-like roses was perfect for it as it had the red and green tones already.

 

I started by cutting up the papers for the layers at the top of the layout. I used a couple of border punches on some of the paper strips, and distressed the others. I also wanted to incorporate the black and gold accents I used, so I added some black lace from my stash, and then used the Prima Marketing mould and paper clay to create a border. Before the border dried, I cut along the ovals in the mould design to created an interesting edge. Once dry, I painted it with the gold Tattered Angels Glitter Glam, and then rubbed on some dark metallic wax for a vintage feel.

With the top of the layout done, I moved on to the rest of the layout, starting with the Hambly Screen Prints transparency- I cut the oval frame out to use for the base of cluster/layers  under the photo, and one of the frames that looks like it’s for a label as the base for my title.

This is one of the many pictures my daughter takes on Snapchat with that funky flower crown filter that I covered with some small handmade roses, and a die cut from the green Hambly paper for some twigs and leaves to create a crown that would work for these papers!

 

I added some of the red paper, distressed for the photo mats, and added some of the strings I pulled out of the upholstery fabric that came in the kit into the layers.

Here in this picture, you can see some of the fabric that I cut out- some branches with leaves, and the red and gold flower under the green rolled rose. I also added some more handmade roses and more of the green die cut leaves/swirls that I added to the crown on the picture.

Here, I added a title that I cut from my Cameo from heavy cardstock, and then painted with the Tattered Angels Glitter Glam, and then outlined with a black Sharpie. I added a couple more handmade roses, as well some of the tiny fabric leaves I cut out from the fabric.

I finished off the layout by adding some black splatters of India Ink.

Here’s another look at the layout.

Thanks for checking out my “Colour Splash” layout today!

 

Inspire Me: Paint Color Palette

Hello, Bad Girls!

It’s Rae with you today, sharing a layout I made with the October kit, inspired by a paint color palette that I found on Pinterest. I confess: I am a Pinterest Junkie! I use Pinterest every day- I have thousands of pins including recipes, craft projects, beautiful backyards, dream homes, and paint color palettes! I pin so many of these color palettes- some of them are definitely combinations I want in my house, and others I save just for scrapbooking inspiration. This one is so beautiful, I couldn’t wait to use it:

And, I saw all of these colors in the October kit, so I decided to use it for inspiration for this layout of my littlest man, all dressed up on Kindergarten Graduation Day. I edited the picture to coordinate with the color palette, as that shirt was quite a bright teal.

I printed out a small, wallet sized picture for this layout, so to make sure it was still the focal point, I cut down the blue Websters Pages blue paper, distressed it, and glue it to the Melissa Frances ledger paper. The blue and ephemera/script style paper was a prominent theme in the kit, so I was able to repeat those layers in my paper cluster.

I added some of the 7 Gypsies Architextures stickers (the wood, tin tiles, and the door) to my layers for added interest and dimension as well, mixing in some of the blue and brown/grey tones from the color palette.

I also added in some greys and silver tones by adding the frame that I fussy cut from the 7 Gypsies paper, and a metal heart from my stash on the little tag.

I added the title with some alphas from my stash, that are actually a greenish grey that are from the same line/ collection as the Websters Pages paper I used.

I also made the clock using the Prima Marketing paper clay that was in the kit, and a mould that I already has. I painted it with the ivory Tattered Angels High Impact paint, and then used some silver metallic wax to accent the groove for definition.

I also die cut some leaves from the Websters pages ledger paper, and colored them blue and distressed them.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my project today. I definitely recommend browsing through color palettes on Pinterest for some amazing inspiration!

 

Let’s Get Vintage!!

Happy Friday y’all!!  Today we are getting vintage!!

I’ve been itching to scrap these pics of our family ladies tea for a couple of reasons, first of all, we were all dressed up and looking fancy and ummm…how often do you get a photo op with the queen?!  LOL! Well a cardboard cut out of her but still.  So needless to say this layout required just the right combination of class and style but I couldn’t lose my usual grit I normally like to have on a layout.  Then the October kit came and I knew this was the kit to tackle these pics!  I mean, hello…that Hambly overlay?  *swoon*  I was in my element to say the least.  Well enough talk…let’s take a closer peek, shall we?

Let me start with the Prima flower in the middle I toned the bright pink down a bit with the Tattered Angels Ivory paint in the kit and glittered the edges up with the Gold Glimmer paint.  Took a while for paint to dry on that felt but it was worth the effect I think.

 

I knew I wanted to use that glorious Hambly overlay (which I cut up in bits and pieces and cherished).   So I cut the large frame and started layering from there.

I loved the way it looked on top of the 7 Gypsies Architectures Floral Guide Paper but as I cut and layered more pieces and then stencil some painted feathers with the Tattered Angels Ivory paint (and by the way the paint covered really well on that transparency),  I decided to place a plain sheet of clear transparency over the 7 Gypsies paper.  I begin attaching everything to the clear transparencty so everything had an even “transparency” gloss and the seems didn’t appear so harsh and evident.  Then I started hand stitching!  I stitched the little tag on to include some journaling, I’m not much on a lot of journaling text so that was perfect.

Then I knew I had to include some vintage linens, hello…it’s Antiqued Friday!  So I pulled out my linen stash and found these wonderful cross stitched pieces and sewed them on.   I was pretty happy with the look of how it turned out.  All that was left was the title so I just searched through my alphas and popped on some trusty ‘ol alpha stickers from my stash and inked up all the edges and I was done.  It all really came together and suited the mood of the pics pretty well.   I hope y’all are inspired to get your vintage on today on your layouts and projects today!!
