A Wedding Layout - 7 Gypsies Harmony Collection







There's a brand new sketch open at Sketchbook 365 and this month we are featuring papers and embellishments from some of beautiful 7 Gypsies collections.




I've been working with Harmony, a neutral coloured set of papers and ephemera which work really well with the wedding theme I have used here, but it would work equally as well on a masculine layout, heritage, family or memorabilia page.




I've used a layered style, adding foam dots between my layers and adding some distress for a worn and well loved look.




There is another great prize up for grabs this month - a collection of 7 Gypsies goodies - hope to see your entry again.




Thanks for dropping by,

Sweet Love - Now Is The Time To Shine







Today I want to share my second layout created for The Scrapbook Store this month featuring the new My Mind's Eye collection, Just Sayin'.



I've really love the pops of shiny gold glitter here and there which look totally fabulous - the photograph really doesn't show off how beautiful this is but it makes such an impact. I'm also really loving the acetate overlays in the bottom left corner and to the right of the design forming part of the layout title. Such a fun look.



Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Therm-O-Web Eye Candy & Blog Hop!







So, who out there loves a good give-away? I know I do, and I'm sure there are loads more beside me! This week I am thrilled to be showing off my latest mixed media project featuring some fabulous adhesive products from Thermoweb, along with one of my favourite BasicGrey collections, Grand Bazaar.









I've created a collage style canvas featuring patterned papers from Grand Bazaar to create my flower petals, center and leaves which I've applied using a combination of 1/4 inch SuperTape™ and iCraft Adhesive™ Sheets. I then went ahead and added art mediums, paint and mists using lots of vivid color to bring this piece to life.






I've used Thermoweb Zots Singles Clear Adhesive Dots along the top of my canvas, giving me some great dimension to play with and colored them with bright acrylic paint to coordinate with my design. This is an unconventional way to use this product, but I love how this has turned out and I will definitely be using this technique again in other projects. Here is a closer look at how these turned out, don't you love it! 









...a row across the top...










...and another row on the side of the canvas shown here. They look so FAB!











Along the bottom right hand side I've created more dimension this time using 1/2 inch 3D Foam Squares, again painting them up for a cool look.




I hope you've enjoyed my project today featuring Therm-O-Web Adhesives and BasicGrey Grand Bazaar collection




For your chance to win, just leave a comment on the BasicGrey blog here and tell us what type of adhesive you like to use most. Double your chances of winning by leaving the same comment on our Facebook post! We’ll draw a random winner on Friday afternoon. Good luck!

Love You 2










Today I am up on the Scrap365 blog featuring a layout with loads of fun layers in soft pastel shades. I love a layered look and feature this style in many of my creations and it's one of the techniques I just keep coming back to.




Team this up with some fabulous papers and embellishments from Maggie Holmes and I am one very happy scrapper.




For a closer look at some of the details and further explanation, please see my blog post here.





I hope you have a fabulous weekend - I'm looking forward to a creative one.
