"Special & Sweet"
My February DT Reveal for Lindy's Stamp Gang


Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by. Today I have a layout I created
for my February DT reveal for Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I have also made a video tutorial to go with it too.

TO VIEW VIDEO CLICK HERE



"Mango Mania". Then I added some depth to the colours & stencilling with
 just a tiny bit of "Midnight Rendezvous Raven".


Step #1.  After first applying some gesso to my page I then did a little stencilling with some
 texture paste. Next step I sprayed my page with water & started adding the orange & 
yellow sprays & using the water to blend them together.


Step #2.  My next step was to add a little of the "Midnight Rendezvous Raven" (black) & 
blend it around my page with water. This make the stencilling stand out so much more, 
but also adds more depth to the page as well.


Step #3.  I then heat embossed some 2Crafty chipboard harlequin shapes with
 some Lindy's "Cleopatra Copper" embossing powder.


Step #4.  To finish off with I sprayed this gorgeous big orange flower with some of the "Tears on my Pillow Tangerine" spray to match in  with my layout, before sticking on lots of other flowers & leaves too. Last thing I did was to apply some of this "Tears on my Pillow Tangerine" spray, with a brush  from the bottle, around the edges of all the flowers to inject a little more orange to my layout.


I hope you enjoyed visiting with me today & maybe got a little inspired too.
Until next time.

My 49 and Market February DT Reveal
Part Two
"Adore"


Hi there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have another layout that is part of my February DT reveal for 49 and Market and it features their wonderful "Flower Fairies" papers. I have use two pieces of the "Lost Postcard" papers. One of them I actually used the "B" side which is this lovely soft & shaded yellowy peach tones for my background & the other sheet I did a whole lots of fussy cutting from. This range is just perfect for fussy cutting. 


The other paper from this range that I used was the "In the Garden" paper & this is the very back one where you can see the little fairy sitting in amongst all those beautiful flowers. Isn't she beautiful? I tore the front paper so that she could poke through.


 Here you can see I have stamped some feathers with their "Feathers Stamp Set" & then coloured them with some Lindys Stamp Gang sprays & some inks before I cut them out to add to all the layers. I have also used some lovely pieces of 2Crafty Chipboard which is available from
 The Scrapbook Dairies.


 Here you can see I have used some of the newly released 49 and Market - "Shimmer & Shine" flowers in Ivory Fleur Des Champs. I added a tiny bit of ink to their edges to tie all my colours together. 


I have also fussy cut lots of flowers & another little fairy & added them in amongst 
all the flower clusters.

 I have done a little stencilling on my background with some gold bling colour paste from
 Colour Blast Australia. I have never used this product before & I have to say I LOVE it.
In real life it actually looks like it is real gold metal on my page & it is available in
 lots of colours too.


49 and Market Products Used....
Flower Fairies Papers
Lost Postcard X 2
In the Garden
Shimmer & Shine Flowers - Ivory Fleur Des Champ

My 49 and Market February DT Reveal
Part One
"Cheeky"



Hello there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a layout to share with you that I have
 created using the
NEW 49 and Market "3D embellishments".
All these lovely leaves, foliage, leafy frame & dragonflies you can see scattered all around 
my layout come on a sheet & yes as I said, they are 3D & the best part is that they are 
already cut out for you, you just peel & stick. Too easy. These will be available in March so
 make to keep an eye out for them because I know you will love them them as much as I do.


I have teamed the 3D embellishments with lots of the lovely different 49 and Market 
flowers too. How beautiful are all these various flowers?


Just look at these gorgeous dragonflies. There are several of these in different sizes in the
 pack & here you can see a close up of some of those wonderful 3D leaves. The detail 
on them is amazing.


I have also added some of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard pieces which are
all available from The Scrapbook Diaries.

For my background I have used two papers from the 49 and Market "Vintage Artistry" paper collection. The background is the "Seeds of Love" paper & the very back one which you just get a glimpse of at the top & bottom of the page is the "Botanical Press".

 What I love about this Vintage Artistry collection is it's soft & subtleness which for me, makes a perfect background. It lets all the other elements take centre stage.


I am absolutely loving the mixture of all the different flowers with the foliage
 of the 3D Embellishments.


There is even two beautiful circular foliage frames included with the 3D embellishments.
 I have used one around my photo.


A little mixed media, some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, a little stamping & a sprinkling
 of gold glitter glass, and viola, all done. I hope I have inspired you to gives these a try when
 they are released in March, I promise you, you will love them as much as I do. 


49 and Market products used...
I have used flowers from the "Basic Multi Pack-Green", some of the "Rustic Blooms-Green", also some of the "Rustic MINI Blooms-Green" & then finished off with some of their "Roses-turquoise".
The background paper is the "Seeds of Love" paper & the very back one which you just get a glimpse of at the top & bottom of the page is the "Botanical Press"

I will be back soon with some more inspiration.
 Until then.
