Paw Prints

Hello Friends!  Today I'm sharing a new mixed media layout featuring several Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces.  For this layout I used Hearts   Flourish Butterflies Set3   Paws FramePuppy     Love Word Set
A little about the photo, my grand daughter Adalyn loves to soak in my big tub when she comes over, but as you can see my 2 labs love water too! What lab doesn't!  We managed to keep them out but I snapped this photo of them watching patiently.  The Yellow lab is Pearl and she has actually jumped in when my husband was soaking away his aches and pain.  I happened to have the camera for that one too!
To create this layout I started with the background. I pushed some modeling paste through a stencil and then gave it a light spray with turquoise glimmer mist.  Next I matted my photo and adhered them to the mats, and added them to the page.

To alter my chipboard I simply used Embossing powders in 3 colors.  I wanted the Paw frame to stand out so I embossed it in black.
the words and hearts are embossed in turquoise blue and the butterflies are pink glitter.

To finish this layout I added some art stones as well ad mica flakes., flowers and twine.

  If you have a fur baby there's a great variety of chipboard in the Creative Embellishments Store that will embellish your layouts with perfection!

Spring Farmhouse and Julie Nutting

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun layout using Prima Marketing Spring Farmhouse collection and Annie from the Julie Nutting Dolls Collection.  The stamps, flowers, say it in crystals and paper are perfect for the photo I've been wanting to scrap.  All of these items are available at the Rubber Buggy Store so stop by and pick yours up today!

My sweet grand daughter Adria came to visit me one summer and told me she had never been on a horse and when she told me she really wanted to ride one, well I knew the perfect place to take her.  Where I'm from we have the biggest outdoor rodeo ever year and a huge old west celebration.  Well she needed a cowboy hat to ride a horse so we dug this one up, it's a little bug but she loved it anyway!

I did use some bigger flowers from my stash and a couple other small items.

This Julie Nutting doll was just perfect for this layout.

Creative Embellishments Beautiful

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing my first layout of 2019.  Can't believe we are already in a new year, seems like 2018 flew by.  My layout today is of my first born grand daughter Adria, seems like she was a baby not too long ago and now she is a beautiful young lady.  To embellish this layout I used some gorgeous Creative Embellishments chipboard Flourish Corner 2  and Heart Flourish and Girl Word Set. I simply painted my chipboard pieces with Opal Magic acrylic paint and then gave them a quick rub with some Metallique Wax.

Staring with your background, give it a quick spray with a coordinating color, I chose a soft pink.  I added some stenciling to random areas of the layout.

Allow your modeling paste to dry completely

next step is to build your mats and adhere them to your layout.  I chose to give mine some dimension by adding cardboard to the back of the matting.

Paint your chipboard pieces with Acrylic paint.  I used Opal Magic, it starts out looking ping and magically becomes turquoise.  So fun!

Next step is to add some wax rub, I used Rose Gold this will give it a little of the pin back.

Here's a few close ups of the chipboard after I adhered them to the layout.  I finished the layout with some mica flakes and art stones and some flowers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for taking a peek at my project!!
