Hero Arts Pretty Blossoms Layout

Flower Power as the theme this month – talk about say no more!  Off to my Hero Arts digital stash to find the Hero Arts Pretty Blossoms PT002 Digital Download.  I coloured them within photoshop and then printed them out on my inkjet printer on photo paper and then fussy cut them.   I started with a white piece of card and clear gessoed it so it could withstand what was coming.  Using a Kaisercraft flower stencil I used white embossing paste and stencilled that over part of the background, then I mixed some purple into white embossing paste and used a Prima stencil to create some more texture and patterns.  Once dry, I grabbed the “Oom Pah Pah Pink” from Lindy’s Magicals – this is my most favourite one as it is such a gorgeous pink and then a lovely gold through it, it shimmers the nicest out of all of them.

I then dug through my paper stash to find some that would suit the purple and pink theme and created my photo matte.  I wanted a little bit more purple, but not too much and so I stencilled some gold onto the purple to break it down a little.  Time to dig through the flower and ephemera stashes to find appropriate pieces.  I was struck by the friends messages and decided to go with that.

I got busy sticking things down and getting the surrounds built up using the Hero Arts Pretty Blossoms mixed in with all of my other choices.  Setting up my new craft area has allowed me to rediscover a few different pieces that I have in my stash.  Once the layout was almost finished I got out the Sizzix machine to cut out some leaves and glued them in and added in some Altair Art butterflies.  A little bit of bling as the final touch and it is all done.  I love it, it looks pretty darn good and I am pretty sure it fills all parameters of the ‘Flower Power’ theme.  I hope you have fun creating your layout to go with this theme.

Take care all, see you next month.

Smiles,

Delia

My journey with Hero Arts European Adventure Digital Download DK041 continues ….

So, this post was meant for the 27th, however, we had no internet for 4 days and still cannot make a phone call and then had no power for a full day.  Now, if you wish to make your crafting journey a little more challenging than normal, may I recommend going powerless!!!  Very special – in no way at all!  Anyway, just one of the many pleasures of living in the country … I really do love it.  So, I have finally got a craft space happening for me to play in, but it is still quite chaotic and being setup and now in the midst of it all, we are going away for a few days.  Aaaaagh, how does one go from living in the city to the country and life gets busier??  That is just weird.  Anyway, I do manage to escape away to the craft room now and even got to stay up into the wee hours last night.

Below is my second instalment for the month and I decided to continue to use the Hero Arts European Adventure Digital Download DK041 as on my last piece of art from the 17th of this month.  The first layout was France inspired, so this one I used other elements from the kit that were English inspired, the bus, coffee cup and tower.  My papers came from a country collection by DCWV and various other elements from all sorts of sources.  It is hard for me to share where all my various pieces of ephemera and elements come from as I always unpack them out of their original packaging and buy bits and pieces from everywhere.  I will openly admit that I am completely addicted to this awesome hobby!

My layout is below, once again, red, white and blue themed.

My favourite part of this layout is the little cluster down the bottom with the rolled back area of paper.  See the close up below, plus a few more close ups of various parts of the layout.  I shall leave that with you all, stay happy and well, be kind to one another and always find a little bit of time in each day to be creative.

smiles, Delia

Scrapbook Layout with Hero Arts Sea Turtle

Hero Arts Color Layering Sea Turtle

Hi Everyone, Kristina here from Live Love Laugh Scrap sharing a scrapbook layout I’ve embellished with the Hero Arts Color Layering Sea Turtle. My mother is obsessed with sea turtles, so I had to buy this stamp set when it came out. We have plenty of tropical/florida/sea world stuff to scrapbook! This was actually a recent trip down to Gatlinburg, TN when we stopped in at Ripley’s Aquarium {Super overpriced and probably not worth it but I love fish….}  So after I came up with my layout I create an assortment of embellishments with the stamp set. The main elements of course being the sea turtles, which I stamped and cut out, along with few little start fish and flowers. For the seaweed, I stamped this onto some acetate, using Stazon Ink so it would have a glossy almost wet look.

I hope this provides a little inspiration on stretching your stamps to scrapbooking as well! You can save some time by using a stamp positioned, such as the MISTI, to stamp multiples at a time while you’ve got a good ink combo going, and save some for future projects. I just stamp, rotate the paper, stamp again, etc.
