''Vacation'' - GD Layout for Cuts2luv July's Moodboard


Hello my dear friends!

Today, is my turn to share with you my layout for Cuts2luv July's challenge.


The moodboard this month is so fresh and it smells summer. 


I was inspired by the beautiful color palette and I used the tones of blue and green that matched perfectly with my photo. I've based my layout on the sketch and I've made lots of drops with the sprays. To complete my page I've used a flair with an anchor.


Here are some close ups of my layout...


I used the ''Fashion'' paper from the ''Denim & Friends'' Maja Design collection. I made some layers behide my photo with the ''Worn Indigo'', the ''Paisley'' and the ''Sunbleached'' papers.


I primed my background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page by using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ''Blue Hawaiian Blue'' and ''Edelweiss Moss Green''.


I heat embossed the ''Circle Dot Frame'' chipboard with the ''Bavarian Blue'' Lindy’s embossing powder. The title and the ''Leafy Silhouettes'' chippies were also embossed with the ''Spring Leaf Chartreuse'' powder. All the chipboards I used are 2Crafty and most of the flowers are Prima Marketing.


To finish, I added some art stones with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

''So Much Love... Our Story'' - DT Mixed Media Tags for Lindy's Stamp Gang with a VIDEO TUTORIAL

Hi there sweeties! 
 
Today, I'm up on the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog and I’m going to share with you two mixed media tags.


For my tags, I used papers from the 7dots Studio ”Writers Block” collection and I cut them with a sizzix die. I started by giving them a coat of clear gesso and then, I applied modeling paste to the dark tag with a stencil. For the white tag, I mixed modeling paste mixed with ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” magical and I applied the mixture on the tag through a stencil.


I colored the tags by splattering them with Dark Chocolate Truffle and  Steampunk Sepia sprays.


I heat embossed the chippies from the ”Mini Hexagon Clumps” and the ”Mini Flourish Bits” that I used on the dark tag with the Golden Angel Wings embossing powder.


The chippies I used on the white tag were heat embossed with the Bratwurst Brown powder.


 When everything was glued down, I added some bronze micro beads with gel medium and made some splashes with white acrylic artists ink. The ribbons I tied on the tags were colored with the same sprays I used on the tags.




 Here are some close-ups so you can see all the details.









I have also made a video tutorial with the procedure.
