Summer Notebook

Hello, Friends!! Waiting for the summer time, today I bring you a sailor project, a notebook in which I used cardboard to make the slats on the wall and a hatch with the silhouette cameo, I hope you like it.

Step by step process

First cut cardboard strips to fit in the notebook.

Once the strips were glued I gave a layer of white gesso.

To give texture, I first applied crackle paste randomly.

Once dry, I applied embossing paste with a palette knife, it gives a voluminous effect.

And on the back cover I applied Grainy Texture Paste.

Once dry, I started applying Color splash to color the project, first Ocean Mist,

And then Gold Rush.

I colored the hatch with waxes, Aqua Sheen, Silver Glitz and distress ink. For the background, I used a resin compass that was also colored with the same colors.

And this is the result, Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed. I will see you in the next tutorial. Have a wonderful week and take good care of yourself.

Family Fun Double Page

Hi Everyone Kerrie back with another tutorial for Little Birdie Crafts Blog using their gorgeous Watercolor Floral Ballet Paper Collection which is a gorgeous fresh floral collection on a linen type paper. I have also used a sheet of pink paper from their Pretty in Pink Collection which is also a linen paper. This layout is a great design for when you want to scrap an occasion and get more photos in your album. You can change up the first page and instead of one larger photo pop 2 or 3 smaller ones on to tell more of your story. These photos are from way back in 2004 and are ones that weren’t great or in focus so i kept putting off scrapping them but I decided to just scrap them as I love these memories of our family holiday. Cameras weren’t what they are now and neither were my photography skills which again is all part of  our story. That’s what scrapbooking is all about, documenting our family memories even if it is out of focus!

After cutting up my patterned papers and working out their placement, I added some texture using mixed media paste and bricks stencil.
*Tip make sure if you are creating a double layout make sure you use base cardstock from the same pack, as you see my shades of white are different, which thankfully doesn’t matter as I have covered most of it, same often gores for patterned paper packs as they can be from a different run. I actually didn’t notice until I took the photo by then I thought too late  🙂

You can see I have applied the mixed media paste nice and thick and random giving that natural brick look.
I sprinkled Crystal Glitter over the paste while still wet to add subtle sparkle.

 Snip out Primed Chipboard title and paint with Pink Ballet Chalk Paint, while wet, sprinkle on Crystal Glitter again to give a subtle sparkle to your title.

I then layered everything onto my base pages starting with the base patterned papers and then embellishing with a mix of  fussy cut flower clusters from the Watercolour Floral Ballet fussy cut sheet, handmade flowers, die cut leaves.

I finished off with some splatters using watered down chalk paint.

I also dry brushed Gesso onto the handmade flowers.

You can see the sparkle on the chipbaord title.
