ART Layout

This layout I designed for Rainbow Splendour for my share this month.  I was inspired by the triangles on the pin.

So, I used impasto paste through a Flutterby Designs stencil and then sprayed co-coordinating colours of Colour Blast Colour Spray over the top.  The trick is to make sure you dry each colour before adding the next.  This limits the amount of colour mixing that happens.  It still mixes just not as much.

For some reason this photo looks a little dull but in real life it is pretty cool.

Lets go Explore

I have some big things happening down the track so I am in the process of getting my layouts sorted and shared rather than having them sit waiting.  Waiting for what I have no idea maybe just time to sit down and blog them.  I am currently waiting for another process video to save, so why not blog and share these layouts especially as this one is a perfect Rainbow Splendour share.  Check out those wood veneer planes.  My favourite of all the RS woods.

This is a heavy mixed media background with lots of texture so I kept the veneer raw to make it pop.

Me & My Girl

This layout was another option to a design team layout I was working on.  I created three different layouts and had a friend choose the one she thought best fit the criteria.

This layout started off differently, turned into an art journal page then I started again and the finished product is exactly what I imagined.

Here is my layout:

Two more layouts using the “Fur-ever Friends” collection.  These two layout are actually about real life pets.  The first one is my mum’s dog Pinto, who to this very day, isn’t convinced my daughter is a person.  These photo were taken when she was almost a year old and she is four now.  Still, he always has to make sure both front and back, that she isn’t a dog.  Yet he leaves the other two kids alone.  Weird, Right?

Now on to another dog layout.  This one is our beloved Bulldog, Bomber.  This photo was taken at one of my husbands regular house parties just before we met and I moved in 5 months later.  Bomber was the “Man” of the house.  He had his own couch, routine and an attitude.  I messed with that when I moved in and his attitude took a long time to adjust.

Precious Moments

This is my take on this months Scrap the Girls Challenge. This month is a moodboard called “Seaglass”.

All the sea inspiration meant I just had to use a photo of the sea.  I settled on this series of photos of my daughter Poppy taken last October at Kingscliff.  The colours of the ocean are a perfect match.

Here is my Layout:

This layout is all about texture.  I added colour to start then strips of material, some gyprock tape and then bubble wrap.  Yep I used bubble wrap to add some textural “glass rocks” to the layout.  I was a bit of work to hand stitch them all on but I think it was well worth it.  I really love the way it turned out.

There is a process video up on Popleopod YouTube Channel so head over and check it out.

Adventure + OH Neigh | Flutterby Design Team Share

Today I am sharing two layouts that pushed the boundaries on the new “Fur-ever Friends” Collection.  I went back and looked through thousands of photos to see which ones had animals in them.  We don’t have any pets so I had to find alternatives.

This is what I came up with.  The first layout is of my daughters first visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.  Lone Pine is a small animal sanctuary in the heart of Brisbane.  It is a  great place to take kids at is is not too big and you can get a yearly pass fairly cheap.  That means that you can justify going there and only spending an hour or two at a time makes it easy to tire the kids out and you still have enough money left over for new Scrappy supplies you have been eyeing off in the Flutterby Shop.

I will apologise now for the low light of my photos.  It seems when we have really hot bright days, I cannot photograph layouts.  Stained glass windows look great but are a bitch to work with.  The light just doesn’t work and outside is not an option as our house is painted blue and this really kills any natural light.

Here is my first layout.

To read about the process and products head over to the Flutterby Designs Blog and check it out.

Now on to my next layout.  Another series of photos that I found was this of my first Melbourne Cup as a mother.  I loved Melbourne Cup before kids not that I ever really put on a bet.  But I love fascinators and the excitement.  This is my first time going to a Luncheon and it was great fun.

This whole layout is based around the Oh Neigh card from the “Fur-ever Friends” Everyday Etc Cards.

 

 

Well, I hope I have inspired you to use your cards a bit differently.  Please share what you create on the Flutterby Inspiration HQ page.  I’d love to see them.
