Just for you - Off the rails Scrapbooking

Hello everyone.

Candy here with you all once again bringing you another layout. I have been trying to use up my stash and also my scraps. I am sure we all have plenty of both. I have each collection in a bag to keep them all together. I have made a simple layout for you all today using the lovely Kaisercraft Silver Bells collection.

I have cut 1 1/2 inch strips and placed them under my photo along with a 4 x 4 1/2 inch piece as a photo mat. I also used a strip of the pink scallop from the sticker sheet and glued them all down well. The photo is raised. I cut out 11 baubles and taped some flat and others on foam tape. 
I added a tag under the photo and cut out a white tag which I have written my journaling on.

As you can see I have added a non Christmas photo but I think it looks pretty good. I used some metal pieces from my stash and painted them with gesso then went over with some pink chalk ink.  And to give it a bit of bling added some glue here and there and used some sterling glass glitter.
The journaling reads...
A girl and her best friend, big sloppy licks and kisses

The mood board for December

Art Journal Memory Maze DT

Hello everyone Candy here with another Off the page project. A group of my friends came to me and wanted to make an art journal, so I put my thinking cap on and this is what I came up with.
I started with an A4 2 ring binder , covered it with some canvas that I pulled off an old canvas from my stash. Then I painted it all with some gesso this is to help prep the canvas and to seal it. I used a flower/swirl mask and some texture paste.  Inside and out and then waited for this to dry. I used different coloured sprays and waited for it to dry again. I used a script stamp and archival ink and stamped here and there, then run the stamp pad over the outside, just to give it some colour.

I used the 12x12 inch round butterfly frame from Memory Maze, cut it in half and daubed some texture paste over it and dried it well. When it was dry I sprayed with gold and sepia sprays. The extra butterflies form the pack I coloured with the prima ink pads and glued one on top of each other.

I glued half to the front and the other half onto the back of my folder.
