June this and that with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
 Irit is here and this time I have quite a variety of projects made with Scrapmatts delicious chipboards and stencils.
As usual- the first one is a layout.
Those are my gorgeous and still only two grandkids like a year and something ago. 
I made this light Mixed Media layout with Bo Bunny pretty old paper collection and I had to add something new. So Scrapmatts  products are new, aren't they? And they fit this layout a lot.

First the photo was outlined with String Circle 04 circle and another one was added  near. Two kids, connected with blood and love. Two circles- connected with glue and twine.
 The background was made with Circled  stencil and just white acrylic. Again- I stayed in this " circled mood" and as the photo background is dotty, I added lots of dots around the page.

The title  was made in two parts: the first one " TWO" was added over the circle with twine and I used 
Alphabet flags 04 set. The second one " Life Memories" was made with  Assorted words 01 set and heat embossed with black embossing powder.
Love and Laugh sayings were added on the top as a kind of journalling using Scrap words 21 set.

My second project for today is my very first of this type. I actually made Project  Life page and I think that I like this format of crafting. As you know Project Life means flat, not too much things added other than paper and photos and Scrapmatts chipboards were just perfect to add over my self made journalling cards.
So this is " about me" travel page that tells some of our Latvia vacation story.
I added  a lot of rub- ons etc over the paper and photos, but almost each and every piece has a bit of Scrapmatts added over.

On this photo I made over the photo frame with the smallest String CircleS 04  chipboard that was painted into black to be seen.
On the next to this photo jorunalling card I added a few words froms Scrap words25 set.

The water lily gorgeous photo was a bit empty, so I painted the Leaf spray chipboard with glitter paint and heat embossing and added horisontally over the photo.

On this piece I made a saying with half and half: half rub- on and half Scrapmatts Journey word from Assorted words 04 set.

On this piece the words were added twice: on the top and on the bottom as a part of my general sentiment over this part of the layout. I used Scrap words 31  and Assorted words 04  set to make this piece.

Back to Scrap words 25 word that was added on this part of the project.

Sorry, my own photo has no chippies. So let it be!

And I really hope that you like my first attempt with Project Life. More to come!

And something really small as an extra project for today: Mixed Media card I made with one single sentiment stamp and Scrapmatts stencil and chipboards.

 This is an easy Mixed Media card made with Inspired by Stamping sentiment, Scrapmatts chipboards and stencil and just some bling over it.
 I made it as a chalkboard trendy card, using white paint over Circles stencil.
Then I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder and added the two large Ornate toppes 01 chipboard that was white painted around the sentiment.
Easy to make, trendy card for your inspiration !
