Fun Scrap layouts

Having fun trying out still more techniques, and the best part I'm getting pages done for the grand kids. 
Still using the embossing paste and brusho on the background, and had no choice but to use the flamingoes for this layout.
Stamp sets:- Brush work Alphabet, Fabulous Flamingo, Yay You (hostess)
Card Stock:- 12. X. 12. Whisper White, flirty flamingo, dapper denim and pool party.
Ink :- flirty flamingo, blushing bride, tempting turquoise, garden grew, soft sky and powder pink.
Accessories :- brusho, shimmer embossing paste, stencil, butterfly punch, 1/4" circle punch.

Gorgeous Jordi and her little cousin Freddy. 

This next layout is Ivy, as cheeky as ever.
This background was fun to do, and I think very textured and interesting.

Stamp set:- post script background stamp, butterfly basics, birthday blooms and touches of texture
Card Stock :- 12. X. 12  Night of navy, and pool party, powder pink, silver foil, and night of navy.
Ink :- basic grey, pool party
Accessories :- many circle punches, hello you thinlits, big shot, tissue paper, Brusho and vanilla shimmer smooch, silver thread, adhesive sheets.

To make this background, I run the pool party ink pad down the page all over, then ripped up tissue paper and scrunch it up, then opened back up, so there was lots of texture. I then glued it on in strips with the tombow glue. Stamped imagines light all over it, then added Brusho. Sprayed the whole page with vanilla shimmer smooch, then layered up the page.
Punched out the circles, matted the photos, and cut out the words. This is the time to get out your adhesive sheets for these fine thinlits, makes things so easy.

Have ago, and add some texture to your pages.

Sweet Soiree Speciality designer series paper in Scrap layout.

This beautiful paper and embellishment kit was easy to create a page. Thought this photo was perfect for this page. 

I used the same idea from a previous post from Ruth artful stamping YouTube video. Lots of stamping, spritzing ink, sponging, embossing paste and ripping paper. Sponged up embellishments. 
Fun and super easy.

Ink :- Rich Razzleberry
Card Stock :- Sweet Sugar Plum, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Soirée designer series 
Accessories :- doilies, silver heat embossing powder, Sweet Soirée embellishments pack, glimmer embossing paste, and shimmer spritz.

Have a go and share your pages.

Scrap layout with Black Ice technique

Having a little play around with the Black Ice technique, and wanted to use it on a scrap layout. I didn't use a lot, just enough to highlight this page.
Cheeky little Freddy enjoying playing in the car while the others played on the water slide.

For the background I used lots of different stamps, to give the page a warmer feeling. 

Stamps :- Background Bits, Timeless Textures, Touches of Texture
Ink:- Black Archival, Versa Mark
Card Stock:- whisper White 12. X. 12, silver foil, whisper white and Basic Black
Accessories:- heat embossing silver, 2 1/2" circle punch, Pretty Label Punch, black rhinestones, and shimmer grey ribbon.

The car image is from a retired stamp set sorry, but needed it to fit in with the page.

Black Ice - Stunning

Tried this fabulous technique today, it is stunning. This will be my next technique class next month.
Tried each foil colour just to see what they looked like. Loved them all. Melissa Kerman has a wonderful YouTube video on this technique.
Will be posting more about class soon.

I have been playing around with quite a few different products, and watched a great YouTube video from Ruth at artful stamping, and pleased with the result.

This first layout is very straight after watching the video, very similar to Ruth's. I've is oblivious to all what's going on.
