Hello all and happy Saturday!!!! Such a busy week around here... Ready for this weekend!!!
"Treasure" Layout using Authentique "Flourish" and Suave" Collections
Today, we welcome a new month, and a new challenge over at Colorful Creations! This challenge is an inspiration challenge with a twist... Here is the inspiration photo:
The twist?!?? To use the word LUCKY on your layout. (Well everyone knows how much I LOVE that word, right!??!? Hahahaha!!!!!)
And here is my layout:
I am really loving the new Authentique paper lines!!! The paper is fabulous and the colors are just gorgeous :-) They are also included in the March Kit from Frosted Designs (which I used to make this page)!!!!!
I used a black background paper from the kit and added a little detail in various areas. I used the Tim Holtz layering stencil (clocks) and some molding paste tinted with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Magicals" to add some texture to the page. I also used the white gel pen from last month's kit to create the "faux" stitched border around the clock. The kit comes with fabulous Kaisercraft wooden butterflies and I just had to have one on this page! I first stamped one of the Prima Stamps in the kit directly onto the wood using Versamark ink, then heat embossed it to create a resist. I colored it with the African Jade Luminarte Paint included in the kit and some LSG Sunburst Sprays. I topped off the butterfly with gold Perfect Pearls (by Ranger) to tie in the gold from the inspiration photo.
I created small clusters of flowers by Prima and Kaisercraft, applying Gesso to the tops of some of them. I also found these fabulous chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments that were coated with gesso as well.
I used the tiny sticker letters from the kit to add the word "Lucky" on the side of my picture.
I finished off the page with the Kaisercraft rub-ons and black brads from the kit as well. I sponged the trim from the kit with the Luminarte Paint mentioned above and placed it below the title.
And there's my completed page!!! Thanks for looking :-)
Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
