Hello from ME

Good Morning!!!
I'm super excited to be sharing my first post with you all.
Its been so much fun playing with these gorgeous chippies and I must
say the Stencils are awesome too......
Creating with these goodies was so easy to do!
They fit perfectly with my photos and perfectly with my projects..
My first official share with you is my Canvas created for the Scrapmatts Team
board at the show.
Its full of colour, chipboard and stencils.....
My first step was to adhere a selection of swirls from
CB4069 Ornate Frames 26
to the canvas and coated with a thin layer of Gesso.
Using Texture paste I added some circles with
Butterfly Sprinkles with
Now comes the fun part adding lots of colour!!!
Allow it to pool and sit along the grooves of your chipboard.
Increase the intensity of the colour by adding more a step at a time and allowing to dry.
Using a selection of the following I embellished my Canvas
CB5165 Lavender 01
CB5166 Leaf Spray 15
CB6117 Assorted Words 30
CB1235 Leaf Spray 14

All the chipboards chosen from the packs where first Inked then finished with
matching embossing powder.
A few selected pieces where coated with Gesso and Stamped with StazOn.

Once the lavender pieces cooled I re inked the flower tops to adjust the colour.

Before adhering all the pieces to my canvas I randomly stamped the canvas.

Now I have a layout to share with you.
It includes my two favourite people which you will get to know well!
These gorgeous little faces are my inspiration!!!
(I'm Bias)
This one was all pleasure!!!
This timeless photo I have scrapped many times over and its still one of my favourites.
When I saw the CB4070 String Circles 06 Roses
I knew straight away exactly what I wanted to do with it.

Using Shimmer Dusts and water I created my background which I then layered with
Stamps and StazOn.
Using the residue on my brush I painted the chipboard which I've used to border my photo.
I layered this around the indentations on the rose to create another layer of depth.
I also used my chalk inks to randomly stamp with a selection of colour to add
to the rustic look.

Using a few pieces left over from CB4069 Ornate Frames26
I stamped them randomly with a selection of colours.
Some I cut along the swirl lines to spread around the page.
As you can see pictured below.

I detached the small roses from the circle to spread slightly wider creating a larger circle
CB6117 Assorted Words 30
CB6106 Assorted Words 24
I Finished off the layout pieces treating them the same way as I did the frame.
Some flowers, Typescript Stickers and a White Gel Pen
finished the layout off.
I hope you enjoyed my little journey.....
I look forward to playing with more chipboard and sharing the fun with you all.
Till next time
Happy Scrapping.....
