More than layouts....

Today I thought I would share a few OTP projects that our talented Design Teams have made!

First up is this gorgeous canvas from Stéphanie  using the Scraps Of Elegance 'Lynne's Garden Terrace' kit.


Stéphanie does not often make canvases but really enjoyed doing this one because she loves mixed media techniques.

Here are a few close ups....






I just love that fairy!

Next up is Renea with a fabulous memory box using the Scraps Of Darkness kit 'Laura's wish'



She started with a paper mache book box that shw coated with Gesso, and then added layers of distressed and Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Inked (from the Color Add on)  kit papers. 


Next, she added in some of the Ephemera pieces from the kit,  then came the photo.  She rolled some of the kit papers and tied them together with burlap string and added them in with the ephemera pieces.
and she then added some clocks that she had fussy cut out from the kit papers, adding a Prima Sea Resin Starfish piece and some Prima Metal Clock Hands (from the Elements Add On) to the one at the bottom photo corner. 

The bricks were cut from the Prima packaging housing some of the kit embellishments that she painted with white sand texture paste. The flowers were from this month's floral add on, the seashells were some real ones from her stash, and the Tiny Treasures Patina Butterflies.


For the "binding " side she layered on Tissue Tape and some lace. Inking over the tissue tape to get depth of color. 

 

She created "pages" using a Ranger Texture Paste, technique and inking. The book ties closed with hand dyed seam binding ribbon.





On the inside she inked the gesso painting, added on strips of tissue tape and then layered some of the kit Ephemera into the bottom and Mod Podged over it, then gesso and Crackle Painted over them to give them a faded, time worn look. 



For the back she heavily distressed and inked kit paper with the "Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Hope for tomorrow " quote on it that she used on the front of the box. 

Our final projects comes from Anna using the Scraps Of Elegance 'Lynne's Garden Terrace' kit

A couple of gorgeous tags with many luscious layers!






Thanks for stopping by!
