 Hi there and thanks for stopping by 

Sharing another layout using the beautiful Spectrum Sherbet Collection by 49 and Market. I truly cannot get enough of this collection, it is so versatile. Today l have used a photo of my daughter and myself

For the background paper l chose Painted Foundations - Washed, and under my photo l have layered paper scraps and laser cut elements to give dimension

For my title l embossed the word Smile with pink before swiping it with Finnabair Rose Gold metallic wax

I chose a couple of sentiments and added one to the photo stack and the other under my title.
I added a mixture of flowers and microbeads for added effect

 l finished the layout with transfers on the background and added a chipboard tag under the flowers on the bottom. I'm loving how many options there are in the Strawberry Lemonade transfer set! 

Thanks for looking, that's all from me today
See you next time

Everyday Magic

Today l am sharing a layout using the beautiful Spectrum Sherbet Collection from 49 and Market. I am in love with this collection, all those bright colours are gorgeous and everything matches so well together.

Lots of layers were added under my photo using the Sherbet Chipboard Set and the Essential Laser Cut Elements

I added extra embellishments using Finnabair Mechanical Moulds. I painted them in orange after first covering with gesso, then sprinkled glitter while wet so the glitter sticks once dry.

Finally l finished the layout with some rubons from the Strawberry Lemonade Transfer Set,  and added micro beads and mini Prills

Thanks for looking and have a great day

Getting Married

 After many years on my own l found happiness and was married during covid with all its unusual rules. We could only have 30 guests at our wedding, which actually wasn't all bad!

Here are a couple of layouts featuring lovley Prima flowers, chip board from various companies, one being 2Crafty, Sizzix dies and some fussy cutting using papers from 49 and Market 

I used crackle texture paste with a stencil for my background

The chipboard title has a lovley shine due to metalliic paint
The hearts have been rubbed with wax

The chipboards have been painted in pink and glossy accents added 

I cut up a vine from 2Crafty, painted in olive and added between my flowers

Thanks for stopping by :)

Artisty Range and flowers from Prima
My background has been stencilled, metallic paint added and some random stamping

I didn't have the right coloured flowers so l painted them, some have metallic paint and others acrylic paint topped with seed and micro beads

I have also added some sea themed embellishments using Prima moulds

My title and photo corners are painted using a blue metallic paint
The photo corners have a touch of Old Silver wax 

The 'Love with Passion' is from a Crafters Workshop stencil
