Angel of Mine – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

I am soooo thrilled that today is the first reveal for the new dt at Creative Embellishments! I just love what everyone came up with for their examples for the March challenge. Be sure to stop by the CE blog and check it out! 😀

For my take on the challenge, I was inspired by the colors, placement of the colors, the flowers, butterflies and fairy wings from the inspo photo. There’s also a stunning sketch by one of our team members, Tammy, to combine with the inspiration image this month.

To create my page, I started with white cardstock and adhered crumpled tissue paper to the areas I wanted each color. Once dried, I went over the wrinkles lightly with gesso to bring out the texture. I then added a doodled border to go with the whimsical feel of the page and tied that in by outlining a few of the fussy cut flowers. All of my chippies have been altered with a silver gelato and PITT markers.  Here’s what I came up with:

Warm & Cozy – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi, everyone! It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. 😀 I snapped this normal everyday pic of Madison one day when then kids were all camping out in the living room. She’s all snuggled up in her favorite blanket which was given to her by a friend of mine before she was even born.

To create my background, I used the Creative Embellishments Bokeh stamp with some gelatos. It didn’t turn out quite how I’d intended because after stamping with it, I had wanted to blur the lines a bit and misted it with more water. Too much water. lol So It’s splotchier than it started out being. After that goof, I had to continue with it, so I went ahead and made the rest of the background to match. lol I altered both the flourish and the Out of this World chipboard pieces with gelatos as well, but went with an acrylic paint on the Chunky Alphas. Here’s how it turned out:

Materials:

Creative Embellishments Circle Bokeh stamp
CE Out of This World frame
CE Chunky Alphabet
CE Flourish set 15
13 Arts papers
Webster’s Pages charm and clip
lace from my stash
Design Memory Craft gelatos
gesso
acrylic paint
prima flowers
doilies from my stash
Martha Stewart punches
Spellbinders die

For my page, I was inspired by the February mood board at Scrap Around the World:

I liked the circular scattered elements in the background of the lower left image and the colors from the chevron image. I also incorporated a touch of metallic elements inspired by the lower right image.

I also went with the February 1st Stuck?! Sketch to create my page:

Last but not least, Scrap Africa’s challenge #26 is to incorporate altered chipboard, so I’m entering that challenge with my page as well. TFL!

Winter Wonderland – dt layout for Sketchabilities sketch #108

Wow time goes by so fast! My term with Sketchabilities has come to a close, so this will be my last layout based on their sketches as part of their dt. However, I’m sure I’ll be playing along with their gorgeous sketches as a participant in the future. 😀 For my last dt page, I decided to create a colorful, whimsical page using a Creative Embellishments snowflake bg stamp, some of their fantastic laser cut chipboard pieces and my favorite paper manufacturers, Webster’s Pages‘, papers, bling and embellies. My page was also inspired by the Frosty challenge #91 at scrapki-wyzwaniowo. Here’s what I came up with:
