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.

Here are a few close ups too:

Not a Dog + No Joke | Flutterby Designs DT Share.

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?

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

 Here are a few close ups:

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.

Here are a few close ups:

Thanks for stopping by today.

Make Me Beautiful

Today I am sharing my Scrap the Girls Design Team Layout for this month.

This month the challenge was “First, let me take a Selfie”

And here is my take on the challenge.

There is a process video on POPLEOPOD YouTube so I won’t go into all the details you can just watch me create it.  So check it out and let me know what you think.

Oh, and here are a few close ups:

Tag Swap

Another tag swap I participated in this month.

Here is the Moodboard…

I took inspiration from the colours, the letters and the idea that Lady Gaga is a big voice that is very empowered and stands up for her what she believes in.  She isn’t anyones puppet.

I focused on the message that I wanted to portray this time round rather than any heavy texture or media.  This Viva Las VegaStamp! was perfect.  I also had the initial idea to be cutting the strings with scissors but I didn’t have any stamps or chipboard pieces in my stash.  I came across this saw and thought, yep it’s a little drastic, would make a mess but cutting strings is what it is all about.

Masculine Mixed Media Card

Today I am sharing a Masculine Card I made. The card I created I wanted to be very neutral.  What I mean by neutral is Occasion neutral.  Something that is clearly masculine but could be used for any thing.  This is what I came up with….

It’s not secret I love grunge.  So I created a grungy embossed background that I then layered embossed chipboard over the top before adding a stamped fussy cut image.

The Colour Blast Embossing Powder is super shiny and difficult to photograph.

As for the stamped man, he is from A Stampers Anonymous collection of stamps I recently purchased with this task in mind. I coloured him using the new Colour Blast Shimmer Powders.  I’m not much into fussy cutting but I think I might do it more often as it is a great way to use your stamps.

There is a process video that goes along with this card too you can check it out here

I am the Machine | Mixed Media Colour Blast DT Share

Today I am sharing my most recent layout for Colour Blast Australia.  This layout is made up of a whole heap of scraps, colours, chipboard, stamping and that’s about all.

I literally used scraps to build my base.   You can read all about it on the Colour Blast blog.

Discover | Tag Swap

Ugh. My blog posts are piling up on my desk top and I need to get them written and videos made before it is full and tells me I need to make space.

So here is a quick one that doesn’t have a process video.  It is a tag that I made for this months Funky Art Swap.  This month is a Tic Tac Toe.  I chose to go with the right hand three squares.  Flair, Dusts and Stamping.

And here is my tag.  I used some Rainbow Splendour bits, added in some stamping (in particular some Viva Las VegaStamps!), some Colour Blast Australia Shimmer Dusts and a lot of layers and I am really happy.  I was going for a vintagey steampunk feel.

How awesome is that wood Veneer from Rainbow Splendour.  I have to say Chloe’s designs are freaking amazing.
