Summer Layouts

These are two layouts I made today, on the first I used some of the straw that I got for the UKS cybercrop and I used my last bit of lace trim. The second one was fun to make because I used clear embossing powder on the stamped images and then blended some distressed ink over the image. It worked well because I am running out of alphabets. I love the little bird stamp (american crafts) that is over the photo. My Desk is a right mess as you can see no space to work on it, must clean it up!

ATC Secret Garden Ideas

I played around with some ideas for an ATC swap Im in over in UKS I think I might be getting somewhere now, I stamped one of the Tim Holtz Ideology stamps about 12 times and started adding different textures to it. In these I used very fine glitter, stickles and crackle paint and embossing powder. I have to decide what effect I like the best. I am also working on another idea too Ill pick one to go with tommorrow.

One of the holiday layouts. I hand cut the blue swirl, inked the sides, covered it in glossy accents and then put some shiny trim on it. The flowers come all the way form my mother in law in Algeria. She sent me over a large box of ribbon and flowers. I stamped the base paper with my stam and sprayed it with glimmer mist. I think it looks nocer in real life!
