Layout for Scrap Matrix DT Challenge

Good morning everyone, today I am up on the Scrap Matrix blog sharing my first creation for the March Challenge - Layers and Textures.    I am often a texture, flowers, layers scrapbooker and that creates a thick page that doesnt fit into my albums.  So this time I have created a page that has as much detail but doesnt have the thickness (if that makes sense!)

I began with black gesso and a crafters workshop stencil on 7 Dots Paper from the Paint Chips Collection

Once the gesso was dry I have put the stencil back on and using Finnabairs Mica powder & a little water I went over the marks again

Whilst that was drying I stamped my images onto paper that I had previous created using the gelli plate, dylusion paints, stamps, stencils  and lots of handmade marks and shapes.  I colour photocopied the original so I get to use it over and over again 

I then fussy cut the images out  and have used Dylusion paint pens to draw around the edges, colour in some of the images so as to define the stamp more 

to add some more texture to my layout I have used the AALL and Create Stamp #39 by Bipasha with Embossing Powders around the layout.  I have coloured some pieces of a bandage with Dylusion Sprays to place behind my photo and added some word stickers from the 7 Dots Collections - Paint Chips and Fortune Teller.  

Here are some close ups:

Outlining the images in paint pen - be careful not to be too neat! This adds dimension.

Stamped images in the background with embossing powder adds another layer and texture

Dyed bandage tucked under here and there also gives a different texture.

Scrapbook layout for Visible Image DT

Good morning, today I would like to share a layout that I have created for the Visible Image Design Team.   I have created this layout:

When I started this layout I had no idea what I was going to do but I did know I wanted to create using bright colours, so I have used water colour paper and randomly stamped around where my picture would be using the Imperfection is Beauty Stamp collection

I then decided I would fussy cut out some bright coloured flowers so I used another piece of water colour paper and created colour using Dylusions Ink Sprays and water

I added layers of colour drying in between and continually adding water and letting them take their own course.  Once I was happy with the colours I spritzed the whole piece with water and ran a roll of paper towel across it to pick up some of the colour and leave random whiter marks.

I have then stamped the flowers and fussy cut them out.

I have stamped the saying Good Times from the No Regrets Stamp collection and embossed with Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing powder.  I didnt want straight edges so I have cut around the letters and placed onto my layout.

Here are some close ups:

I have defined the centre of the flowers with white and black paint pens

12x12 layout for Scrap Matrix

Hi everyone, today I would like to share with you my second layout for the "ranger" challenge over at Scrap FX this month.

I have used 7 Dots Paper - Illumination with some Ranger Dylusion Numbers Stencil and Dina Wakley Heavy Body paint - Sky mixed with Ranger Multi Medium Gloss

I have then stamped with Dina Wakley stamp - Scribbled Text Elements

I have stamped on a separate piece of paper some circles using the Around the Edge Dylusions stamp and Dylusions Ink Spray

I have used some IrRESISTable ink (Tangelo Irresistable) to make some scribbles in the background and white gesso splotches.

I have used the same stamp and white embossing powder on the photo matt to create a frame.  I have then put the layout together using some Dina Wakley washi tape

12x12 layout for Visible Image

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a layout I created for Visible Image design team -

I created the background using 7 Dots Dreamscapes paper and Tim Holtz Distress Oxides.

Once the background was dry I began stamping.  I have used the Fibonacci stamp with the distress oxide - this ink stamps beautifully with the visible image stamps.

Using black ink and the Somewhere in Time stamp I have randomly stamped around where my photo mat is going to be.  I have also stamped the quotes on separate paper and adhered to the layout. 
Here are some close ups:

I have provided links to the stamps I have used below:
