Memories - Prima BAP May 2015

I'm playing along with the Prima BAP this month and have created this neutral, grungy, mixed-media layout using the Engraver collection, Prima embellishments and a family photo from my son's first birthday party. Here is my layout and the Prima BAP sketch that inspired it.

Here are some close-ups!

How Long is Forever? ~ Alice Art Journal Page

Hi Scrappy Friends! Today, I am sharing another page from my Alice in Wonderland Art Journal Series. I love this quote - I find it so meaningful and poignant.
I've used this month's Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Challenge as the basis for the page, matching the colours as best as possible from my stash! I've used Ocean Breeze Blue Flat Shot, Golden Angel Wings Embossing Powder; Hollyhock Scarlet Plum Embossing Powder; Starbursts in Bodacious Blush and Opal Sea Oats and Glitz Spritz in Steel Shimmer.
I started off using the Flat Shot and Starbursts on my gelli plate and laid the page down on top of the gelli plate and ran a brayer over it to get the colour blend for the base of the page. I then did some stamping and embossing with a floral stamp and the Hollyhock Scarlet Plum Embossing Powder. Next, I added the stars using a stencil, embossing paste and the Golden Angel Wings Embossing Powder. I also added some stenciling with Silver Crackle Texture Paste to the bottom of the page to bring in some more of the Silver tone. Finally, I lightly splattered the page with the Steel Shimmer Glitz Spritz. Here are some close-ups of each side.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog for a peek at my Art Journal page!

Butterfly Garden Collection Layout - Meg's Garden DT

Hello again Scrappy Friends! Today I am sharing a layout created with the absolutely stunning Butterfly Collection papers and embellishments from the Meg's Garden store. I started off with The Butterfly Garden by Night 12 x 12 paper for the base, added a coat of clear gesso and then did some masking with a Prima stencil and Prima Art Extravagance Graphite Texture Paste. Next, I built up layers using pieces from the 6 x 6 papers in The Butterfly Collection Mini Pack as the foundation for my son's first school photo from Junior Kindergarten this year! I fussy cut some butterflies from the mini papers and added some pieces of white floral wire to them as antennae. I added flowers, fibres, ribbon and a bead (added to a pearl stickpin from my stash) from the Meg's Bundles Temptation in Blue embellishment pack. I also fussy cut some text circles from the 12 x 12 Cut & Create Ephemera page to use as embellishments and as the centre for the dark blue flower. Finally, I finished off the layout with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Caribbean Blue Flat Fabio mist mixed with water.
Here are some close-ups!
