Hi Scrappy Friends! Today I'm sharing a layout with you that I made using the gorgeous Meg's Garden Forgotten Meadows collection! I just love the soft floral images on these papers and decided to make a layout that really played on a balance between a large floral image and my photo collage. Here is my son searching for his Easter Treats this year!
I used a Prima basket-weave stencil and white molding paste along the right side of the layout and chose two colours of Lindy's Stamp Ganag mists that match the tones in the large floral image on the left side of the page. I used the mini-papers to create the layering under my photos and added a flower (tinted with the same pink mist) and some lace from the Meg's Garden store. Finally, I added a few resin pieces, title and bling from my stash to complete the layout. Here is a close-up and a couple of different angles of the layout so you can see the layering!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Happy Scrapping!
Hello! Today I am sharing a new project for the Meg's Garden Design Team using a combination of the gorgeous Butterfly Garden and Forgotten Meadows collections, as well as some embellishments from the Meg's Garden Store and from my stash. Have you heard of pocket letters? I just recently learned about them and, since I love making Artist Trading Cards, I thought it would be fun to create a pocket letter page, which is (essentially) a collection of coordinated ATCs in a trading card page! The Meg's Garden Mini-Papers and Cut & Create Ephemera papers are absolutely perfect for creating pocket letters - you can also use bits and pieces leftover from your larger papers! I wanted this page to look as though it were a collection of vintage memorabilia from a trip to Paris, so I have distressed and added Vintage Photo distress ink to the edges of the papers.
Here are some close-ups of each of the rows (out of the plastic trading card page to avoid glare)!
I hope you like my pocket letter page - it was so fun to make! If you create one with Meg's Garden products, leave me a link in the comments below so I can pop by for a look!
I created this layout based on the Prima June BAP and using the Lindy's Stamp Gang June Color Challenge Palette. I promised myself I would start using up some of my stash - so I've used an older Prima paper collection, Tea Thyme, to create this mixed-media layout featuring my cat Malcolm. Here is my layout and the Prima Sketch and Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Palette that inspired it.
I used a Prima Stencil and modelling paste as well as Finnabair's Matte Soft Gel mixed with two colours of Prima Finnabair Glitter on the background. I also added random stamping with two Prima stamps. I did lots of fussy cutting of the Tea Thyme papers, punched/cut out circle shapes from the paper as well as cut some random squares/rectangles. I then enhanced some of the cut out circles using glass beads. Here are some close-ups of the layout!

I'm sharing a new page in my Music Art Journal - inspired by the song "Titanium" by David Guetta (with Sia). I've used lots of Prima Finnabair goodies on this page - Clear Crackle Texture Paste, Antique Silver Crackle Texture Paste, Soft Gloss Gel and stamps from Finnabair's Don't Forget to Fly collection. (A shout out to the talented Marta Lapkowska for the idea to stamp on tissue and cut out the images to adhere to the journal page!) I also used Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Queen of Hearts Red for the red misting on the page. (Note: With the coat of gloss gel over the page, it is difficult to get a picture without glare...but here's the best I could get!)
And Close-ups of each side!
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by for a peek at my Art Journal page.
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!

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.

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.
Hi Scrappy Friends! Today I'm sharing a mini waterfall folio with you - created with the absolutely gorgeous Meg's Garden Forgotten Meadows paper collection and mini papers, along with some gorgeous ribbons, flowers and embellishments from the Meg's Garden Store. This mini waterfall folio was created based on this tutorial I found on Youtube by the talented Ginger Ropp. I knew as soon as I saw the gorgeous purple Wisteria paper that I wanted to use it for the cover of this mini folio. I wanted the cover to look "garden-y" and so I added some chicken wire masking and chipboard, fussy cut flowers and butterflies from the Forgotten Meadows papers, flowers and leaves and some tassels that I cut off some trim. I also used some thin purple ribbon as the closure for the album.
I don't often use a lot of purple in my papercrafting, though it is one of my favourite colours, so I decided to play up the purple in this mini by using some purple cardstock from my stash as the matting for the tags, pockets and waterfall pages. I have inked the edges of all the patterned papers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give a more vintage/shabby-chic feel to the mini folio. I've added some simple decorations to the inside of the album using fussy-cut butterflies and lots of ribbon on the tags!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today - I hope you enjoyed my Mini Waterfall Folio Album!
