Hi there, how's it going? Christine here posting a couple of projects filled with Scrapmatts goodness. I've titled my post for this month "Birth & Birthday", so let's start off with my birth mixed media layout:
Scrapmatts Chipboards: Diamond Mesh (CB5127), Assorted Words (CB6115), Gears (CB1073), Butterflies (CB1045), Black Scrap Words (CB1197)
Scrapmatts Stencils: Squares (ST1038), Borders (ST1010), Cobblestones (ST5014)
I’m not big on scrapping photos with myself on it, but this particular picture is very special and close to my heart and deserves a special page. The birth of my first daughter definitely changed my life forever, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Hands down blue is my ultimate favourite color so I incorporated
The chipboards have been painted white, and I've added some blue paint to the “life” Scrap Word for an ombre effect. The Diamond Mesh would have to be one of my favourite Scrapmatts chipboard and the Black Scrap Words are perfect for adding those little extra subtitles to your projects.
Next up is a birthday card for a bubbly and cheerful little girl:
Scrapmatts Chipboards: Nested Stars (CB5021), String Circles (CB5138), Black Silhouettes (CB1195), Assorted Words (CB6116), Sticks (CB5153), Burnt Cream Scrap Words (CB1238)
Scrapmatts Stencil: Circles (ST5006)
I applied some black texture paste through the Scrapmatts Circles Stencil on the yellow cardstock and layered the Nesting Star on top which I've embossed. For the top chipboard layers, I’ve painted the sticks white, the stars strings and wish word with yellow paint. The wish word is topped with traced edges and glossy accents for a shiny enameled finish.
I also added some glitter on top of the black balloon, because glitter dipped balloons are delightful :). It’s all finished off with some flowers and it’s ready for the bubbly and cheery birthday girl.
