My May Creating!

Hello there, I hope this month of May has started well for you! And for all the Mums out there, I hope you get something special for Mothers day too..

I have a couple of creations I would like to share with you..  The first one is a card that I have embellished with  some lovely SCRAPMATTS chipboard.

 I did some paper pleating across the front of the card and placed a lovely Card Border 02 which I embossed in white on top of the pleats to hold the pleats in place.. I also embossed the Flowers 03 in pink and put a fabulous sparkly gem in the centre of each one..  And for the Sentiment I used the word Celebrate from the  Scrap Words 24.

Here are the products and a link to the shop.

I would like to share with you a layout using some pretty papers and lovely chipboard colored by using water colors or gesso.

some closer views..

This close up shows the stencilling on the back ground using the Stencil Hearts , and the chipboard  Diamond Mesh 02 .

 You can also see the String Circles 03 which I have placed under my photo.. I actually cut it in half to use it in two places under my photo...

You can see some more stencilling on the back ground using the Stencil Leaf Sprays which is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! I have also used some gorgeous Flowers 12 which I have painted using water colors ( paint with gesso first as a prima for the color..)

and my layout..

Beautiful Memory..

I will list all the Scrapmatts I have used on this layout for you..
