Studio Calico - So Cal Kit

Another layout using Studio Calico's So Cal kit. I really get excited when I am able to use pink on my projects, since a lot of what I do tends, to have blue's, teals, and brown's. This layout came along pretty quickly, I have some plain cardstock left from the kit and when I was looking through my photos, I saw this one and I was wearing a pink jumper, so I thought, how perfect!!

I took some Prima flowers and glimmer misted them, I also hand cut some Graphic 45 ephemera from an older collection.

Again, super simple layout, but I love the way it turned out!

Mini Butterfly Canvas - Websters Pages and Studio Calico

I love the way these mini canvas's turned out. I used a few of my favorite things on them, butterflies, Prima bling and of course Webster's Pages. I had so much fun using using so many different techniques on them. They are small, but they pack a punch!

1. The first thing I did was take a Webster's Pages pattern paper and adhered it to the canvas using Claudine Helmuth matt medium.

2. I stamped the sentiment using Archival Ink by Ranger in black, then I took some white and yellow pastel paints and just brushed around the paper.

3. I took some Webster Pages mesh and took some modeling paste to the corners. This was so much fun! I them took some Perfect Pearls by Ranger and brushed some onto where the  modeling paste was, then I sealed it by covering the perfect pearls with Bubbles Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.

4. I used Perfect Pearls by Ranger on the butterflies as well.

Hope you love them as much as I do!! I explain a bit more in detail in the video below:

Let me know if you have any questions!

Websters Pages! Once Upon A Halloween!

Woohoo, I am so excited about this Halloween collection from Websters Pages, I love the colors, lime green, orange, purple. Love the owls!! Can not wait to get it into my hands. I will be doing a class in October with this collection and we will be making a Halloween frame (base of frame is wooden), as part of the class kit each attendee will be receiving their very own 6 x 6 pad of this collection. More information to come in the next few days! I am loving the cameos and the trim from his collection. The trim is so versatile, and we will be using some of it on the frame. I may be having a class on a Halloween mini album as well towards the end of October, still working out the details on that one.

Hope you have an awesome Thursday!!
