Cool kid

Welcome everyone to another month of creating.
 for the Memory Maze design team
Today I have used some mixed media on my layout. 

I firstly covered my cardstock with some clear gesso. 
Using a ruler and a black stabilo pencil I drew black lines
across the middle of my cardstock, some darker than the others.
Spray these with water and let run. Carefull not to make your cardstock
to wet. It will fall apart.
You can dry between water sprays if you like.


Use a pencil to mark where you want to place your photo,
then spray with some spray just around where your photo is to go.
Dry this well.

The chipboard I covered with versamark 
then a couple of coats of the embossing powder. 
Place all your papers, flowers and the rest of the embellies onto your layout.
And then splatter some white ink around.

Welcome welcome ladies.
This month we have a great colour challenge
from Off the Rails
You could create with african animals,
zoo or just do the colour challenge, which was what I decided to do.
I have used orange, red and yellow on my layout.

This took me right out of my box as orange is not a favourite colour of mine
and I struggle to use it. 
 I decided to use a very old Kaisercrqaft Collection
 I cut three papers at different sizes, then taped them to the background.
I then covered the background with clear gesso
 as I wanted the splatters of yellow and my stamping to stand out. 

My photo is raised with foam tape, adding the red lace under the photo
and up along the top right side of my paper.
Using a leaf die I cut out three leaves, one of these are cut apart.
I added collectable flowers under the flowers then layered
everything else. Adding the flair button.
I covered my photo and splattered with the yellow die
 then stamped with a script stamp and red ink pad 
to finish off my page.

Kaisercraft Curiousity Collection
- unique paper

Mixed media tags

Hello hello welcome everyone. 
I have had these tags in my stash for a while and thought I would give them
a mixed media overhaul.
I have created these for
Memory Maze

Both  tags I covered with some scrap paper from my stash using some matt medium
making sure the scrolls and penny farthing bike stick to my base.

My first one has the penny farthing bike on it.
After the base is dry I used a script stamp and stamped all over it with \
black stazon ink.

I glued on the metal flower and leaves,  
then the resin flower in the middle of the flower.
I then sprayed with the indigo and turquiose sprays,
  went over the top of everything with the black stazon ink pad
I glued on the flowers and butterfly and the phrase Beauty.
Splatted with the black ink then when that was dry
 went over using my finger with the crystalina glitter.

Tag no 2

I have used a wrought iron scroll on this one. 
I did the base the same as the first one.
Cover with your scrap paper, glue the scrolls on. 
I did cut these to fit. Just the straight ends. 
Glue on the metal flower and butterfly and
Coat with white gesso let dry them spray with Sunset, bubblegum 
and the turquoise sprays.
Rub your black ink pad over the top and around the sides.

I then glues on my flower, leaves and phrase. 
And coat with the crystalina glitter

A perfect day

Welcome everyone Candy here with another project for Off The Rails
for the 9th  May.
Wow how the months are flying by, 
it will be Christmas before we know it.
The layout I have created using the Kaisercraft
Ubud Collection.
 I thought this would suit the mood board
 And also the photo of my daughter Tracy fishing.
We aslo had to use feathers on our project which I though
the feathers would soften, making it a bit more feminine.

Here is the moodboard

50 Today

Welcome to my first tutorial for the month of April
for Memory Maze
Wow can not believe it is the beginning of April how time flies
when you are having fun.
It is my nieces birthday on the weekend and she is having a party
the Big 50.
So I thought I would make her an album to keep all her precious photos in.

I started by using a Kaisercraft 6x8 inch D ring binder and with some gold paint,
paint around the edges and the spine iside and out.

I cut papers to fit the front, back and the spine of the folder.
Mine measured 8 1/4 x 9 inches and the spine piece was 1 1/2 x 9 inches.
I distressed around the edges of my papers and taped down using wide strong tape.
I had bought some lace packs from a recent craft show, using the cream
lace I measured the front,back and spine. Cut out the rectangle then
using the soft gel I glued down.
I then cut the pink flower lace to size 6x9 inches and glued that down as well
onto the spine, fron and back. Then added a fancy lace ribbon piece to the front.



I used the oval, swirls, letters, numbers and the word love.
I firstly mixed some white and gold embossing powder together.
Covered them with the versamark then a good covering of the powder.
I used the gold embossing powder on the numbers, letters and the word love.

Glue the swirls to the front of the oval piece, then glue your photo underneath.
Glue this onto the front of your album.
Add your flowers,bling swirls and the rest of your chippies using good glue.
We don't want these to fall off.
