August projects by Helen

Hello Scrappy Friends.  
Welcome to my August Scrapmatts projects.

The first two projects were created for the CSI/Scrapmatts combined challenge.  I didn’t get a chance to show them before leaving on holidays.

The texture was created with ST1003 Stencil Sticks 

This is the second page created for CSI/Scrapmatts challenge.
The texture was created with the gorgeous new stencil
 ST5030 Stencil Flowers 
The bird cage  MC1028 Micro Chips 20
and antique stand  MC1028 Micro Chips 20
were dabbed with gesso
and the little bird was tinted a pale blue.
 The frame CB6011 Ornate Frame 09
was treated with gesso and dabbed with distress ink.
 The word title CB1198 Scrapwords 06
 was given a light water colour wash.
I love the way the border CB2001 Page Borders 01
responded to LSG Magicals and Glossy accents.

For the cherish, memories, laughter layout,
I enjoyed used one of the new stencils
ST1032 Stencil Plus Signs
with texture paste.
LSG magicals created the blue and green colours
over the top of the stencilling.
The title words are from the CB1237 Scrap Words 23
On the butterflies,  CB1028 Butterflies 18
I used Tim Holtz distress inks 
and topped them with Glossy accents to make them shine.
The square chipboard CB5141 Retro Squares 01
was treated with gesso and randomly applied paint.
