Finally I got the chance to work with these fantastic papers from ColorConspiracy. Although I have all three new collection at home now, for this layout I used only Texturized 2.0 collection and it was fun!
On the grey one I used a little bit of gesso, and some embossing powder with glitter from Stampendous. Then I painted the gesso with watercolors in purple shades.
Underneath the photo I used some solid coloured cardstock and two shades of tissue paper, paper doily, and coloured thread.
Around the photo I made circle from Queen & Co goosebumps and candy stripers.
The title "beautiful" is made out of some old BasicGrey chipboards
sprayed with purple spray and finished with Glossy Accents.
My favourite element is definitely water. BUT for this challenge at Papero amo I found one old black and white picture from some school trip to Great Britain - and it had Stonehange on it. This made it pretty clear - I HAVE to do the EARTH.
I used white cardstock and made the background with gesso, Mr. Huey´s brown spray and gold paint. Under the photo I used gold paper, vellum, thick cardboard, twine,
and some wrapping paper.
The title "Stone" is made out of BasicGrey´s Hipster collection alphabet (that I alsolutely adore), and "henge" is made out of thickers from Amy Tangerine.
Couple of enamel dots at the end always makes it look good...
July Creative kit from Papero amo feels like far away places and summer night sky. The main part of the kit consists of the Atlantic Collection by Studio Calico. So far I made only one layout with the kit, but there is more to come! :)
I used the lovely vellum paper called "Jamestown" with the pattern of the stars, some lovely epoxy brads, cork alphabet from Little Yellow Bicycle, enamel dots, gesso and watercolours for the backround, and Hemptique hemp cord.
What I enjoyed most while creativng this layout was making of the title (princess in czech language) - it is made out of Thickers from Amy Tangerine. I layed them out on the scrap piece of paper and then spayed it with orange Mr. Huey´s. Then I lifted all the letters and reposioned them just a touch and pressed them down again. This created sort of a white shadow.
I cut out feathers from the coloured tissue paper, and one from basic white cardstock using a template from my previous DIY. The white feather I wrapped in turqoise Garn und Mehr twine.
The rest of the title is made out of various stiker aplhabets
and Echo park Sweet girl paper pad.
As always, I HAD to use couple of enamel dots in various colours,
and the journaling was made on my lovely old typewriter.
How much scraps of different cardstock and papers you have lying around? If you are like me, than your answer is probably - too many! Some times I just have to MAKE myself to take that box out and create something just from scraps.
This time I dug out only grey paper scraps and made this simple card with vellum feathers.
Make this your monthly challege and try to use your scraps every once in while - you will be surprised, what kind of treasures are there waiting for you :)
Couple weeks ago I made this Clean and Simple card using the froassage technique.
This technique is about smashing piece of paper into a ball, and then folding it out again.
After that you apply water on the paper to make it soft, and then you apply distress ink, especially in the cracks on the paper. It creates nice distress and vintage look of the paper. You let the whole thing dry and then use on the project.
