my Lifeline

Today I have a mixed media style layout to share with you all! I had a great time creating this one. Cuts2Luv Nov1

I was inspired by

More Than Words November Challenge – I have used stars in various forms on my layout, used the word ‘future’ as well as dedicated the layout to my grandson who means future. To a future generation, who is the star of all our eyes.

Cuts2Luv November Challenge– I have used the colour combination, sketch, picture of 2 people and the watercolour technique.

Here are some close-ups:

Birthday Layout

Sunila here from Dots to Lines, with a birthday layout for Aditi. I’ve used her favourite colours and created this layout. I’ve used Lindy’s Sprays- Hottie Patottie Hot Pink, Tilt a Wheel Teal, Shaker- Bavarian Blue and Embossing Powders- Bavarian Blue, Razzleberry Plum and Twilight Blue Slate. I have used the Altenew Reflections kit along with the stamps- Vintage Flowers and Peony Boquet, inks- Green Fields, Glacier Caves and Red Cosmos. For the texture on the background, I have applied Liquitex Glass Beads texture through AB Studio Stencil ID 23. I have used Finnabair’s Waxes- Rose Gold and Vintage Old to highlight the texture. I have completed it with Art Extravagance Glitter.

The world is your Oyster

Today we have a look scrapbook layout to share with you’ll. We’ve used DCWV’s Blue China Stack for this one. This is a quick and easy layout, showcasing paper from the stack. We haven’t added any extra element. We’ve fussy cut flowers from the paper in the stack and punched out other layered elements.

Happy Birthday Ma!

Today is mom’s birthday and we truly miss her! It’s the first time ever in our life that she is not around and we are looking forward to having her back soon!

Today, I decided to scrap her and made this layout for her birthday! The LO truly captures Ma’s spirit- colourful and balanced. She truly adds colour to our lives!

Here’s a look at it:

Ma Altenew LO 1For this one, I used a whole lot of Altenew Supplies- The papers and embellishments from ‘The Reflection Scrapbook Kit’, sentiment from ‘Persian Motifs’ Stamp Set, background stamping using ‘A Splash of Color’ and ‘Wild Hibiscus’ Stamp sets and the frame around the picture from the ‘Framed’ stamp set.

The background on this LO is all about stamp play. The colour blotches from the stamp set were used to match the background colours to add interest yet not make it a focal point. The flowers were stamped using black ink to add more detail and balance the colours. The fussy cut flowers go perfectly well. I also cut a few tags of different sizes on a different pattern paper and used it in the layering. To complete the layout, I added some white splatter, to further enhance the layout!
