Hi Scrap Matrix Fans,
My turn up on the Scrap Matrix blog today with my first inspiration for the month of April.
I wanted to create a fairy garden for the photo of my 'great' niece who is often the subject of my scrapbooking pages. I wanted use all different types of materials including acetate and alcohol inks plus those AWESOME Art by Marlene Stamps which are becoming my firm fav. Distress Oxides ink pads made their way in to create the background, love that they can either be as bright or more mellow depending on your technique !
The April Challenge over on the Scrap Matrix Shares facebook page is to -
Such a great challenge, there are so many great quotes out there,
so get your thinking caps on and enter in our challenge this month.
Here is a round up of the major products used in the layout
and can be found at Scrap Matrix -
Let's take a closer look at the layout!
To create the flowers, I dabbed alcohol inks over an acetate sheet, then sprinkle Alcohol Ink blending solution to create some lovely patterns and blending. I then waited for it to dry then stamped the flowers, stems and leaves in Staz On Jet Black ink. Then fussy cut once dry.
To create the background I used Distress Oxide Inkpads and a smooshing technique on a craft mat along with spritz's of water. Then drag your paper through the liquid and dry between each layer. I also smoothed Distress Oxide Inks over Paper Artsy Stencils using a blending tool, just to give the background some depth.
Add some stamping using an Aall and Create Stamp #47 and your quote.
I used an old 13 Arts sticker sheet (the wings) to add underneath my fussy cut photo which i mounted on 3D foam tape.
And your finished!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today,
