Somewhere In Time Layout + Snapguide Tutorial with Frosted Designs "Enchanted" Kit!!!

Hello again my crafty friends!!!  Just popping in to share a wonderful layout created using this month's "Enchanted" kit from the Frosted Designs Store and a quick tutorial on using the Distress Crackle Paint included in the kit!!!

First, let's altered some chippies!  I am a HUGE fan of the Creative Embellishments chipboard... It's durable, easy to alter, and extremely beautiful!!!  So I grabbed a couple pieces from my stash and went to work!  This is my first tutorial in Snap Guide so bear with me!

Check out How to Add Texture to Your Chipboard With Crackle Paint! by Brandi Matos on Snapguide.

I also used the following picture as inspiration from the July challenge over at Creative Embellishments:


And here is my layout!
I took several pictures of my daughter on Halloween of last year.  She was so anxious to be a "purple tooth fairy"!  I made her wand and costume, then took tons of pics and printed them in color and black and white!  This was my first attempt at an accordion fold on my paper so please be nice...  This paper gave me an excellent opportunity to do this!!!


Isn't my "baby" so beautiful?!?  I don't mean to brag but I just can't help myself sometimes :-)

I was totally inspired by the beautiful blue hues in the inspiration photo, the color of the pineapple (these papers and flowers were perfect for that color!!), the beauty of nature behind the main focal point, and those big, luscious flowers in the drinks!!!  

I started by creating the fold on my paper, then heavily distressed the sides with the teal Prima inker and my distress tool.  I also used a chevron cut file from A Cutt Above The Rest to create a stencil, then sprayed black Dylusions ink from the store over it right down the center of my page!  I grabbed some of the Tim Holtz rub-ons from the kit and added them around my page :-)


I fussy cut several elements from the papers in the kit and added them around my page!  I also added several embellies, including the resin clock, Maya road trinket, and the beautiful Petaloo flowers!  I added additional Prima flowers from my stash and even tucked one inside the large bottle cap from the kit!


I finished my page with the yummy chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments that I altered in the above tutorial!  They were painted, heat embossed, then inked!


Although this is my first try at the fan fold on one of my pages, I assure you, it will not be the last!




Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
