More beautiful projects from Renea

I love it when Renea alters things

I am showing you today her altered little awesome


She covered the bottom part of the jars with Graphic 45 Sticker Tickets from the embellishment add on, putting one on the front and one on the back.

She added some of the flowers from the kit to both sides of each jar, and then took some of the sticker strips and covered the lid edges.

  she topped this jar with reindeer moss, cheesecloth, feathers, some of the leaves from the kit that were daubed with gesso, one of the flowers from the Floral Add On that was misted then painted the edges with gesso, and a Chipboard Butterfly from her stash that she painted, script stamped, texture painted and then added seed beads, German Glitter Glass and Prima E-pearls to.

The 2nd jar, she topped with reindeer moss, cheesecloth and feathers, added in some of those sweet lavender leaves from the kit, along with some mulberry paper flowers, a little Prima bird's nest with a glittered up chipboard bird from her stash.

Patricia's beautioful Floral Fantasy layout

Morning everyone!

You have to check out Patricias gorgeous layout!  I love how she layers and makes her photo take center stage! 

Now I love the whole design of her layout and think it is really beautiful....
how she altered the sink is awesome.....

It looks like bubbly water!
She altered it by creating a water stream.  She used Glossy Accents to make a flow of water and added some clear and blue micro beads to it. To age the sink some, She coloured it with Mushroom Alcohol ink.
Really creative!

now onto the rest of this beautiful layout...

She created flowers using the green satin Leaf trim from the embellishment add on and the Prima Raelynn Royal flowers from the main kit.

Look at all this dimension and layers

Today I am sharing a totally fabulous layout by Bente!

She fussy cut various elements from the detailed G45 papers and added a few dimensional flowers to go with them. In the flower add on was a large Prima jute flower that I coloured using some paint from a previous kit. I used the Silks 'Pink Grapefruit' paint.  

In the kit was also a sheet with small diecut file folders and patterned tags to go with them. 

Some of them have sentiments on them like this one that says 'Just because'.

Sarah's tremendous touch of Grey projects!

This first layout is really awesome

Sarah created this using a Kaisercraft sketch but I just LOVE her interpretation!

I {heart} the tea rings!
She used pieces from the "Art of Life" Collectibles (Embellishments Add-On) and from the Loved paper to create the distressed layering under the photos, as well as some chipboard from her stash - which she painted with black gesso and then embossed with a light dusting of Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Golden Angel Wings (Colour Add-On). After she had completed the layering, but before adding the photos, she splattered the layout with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst in Opal Sea Oats (CAO). I used photoshop to create the "polaroid" photos - using a polaroid frame template  found online and photos of her son, which she converted to black and white.

To embellish the layout, she wanted to make it look like someone had emptied their pockets onto the "desk", so she added a wooden domino that she distressed with sandpaper, tiny coins taken off an old necklace, a 7 Gypsies vintage safety pin, a metal key and keyhole and some wooden buttons (EAO), which had soaked in tea to alter the colour. She added a Prima Flair button and two Prima mini-clothespins, rubbed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, to the photos.

I wanted to show you how diverse Sarah is

her next layout is so girly and funky...

She wanted to prove that pink is not just a girly colour!

For the colour on the layout, she used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts in Bodacious Blush and Cheshire Cat Cherry, along with Colorbox Chalk Inks in Chianti, Peony and Orchid. There are also some splatters of Black Ink. The papers are a combination of Authentique, Fabscraps and Kaisercraft from the SOD February Kit andShe has added in some Petaloo Flowers (Flower Add-On). The large clear gems and decorative wood pieces are from Teresa Collins' Save The Date collection (Embellishment Add-On) and  some clear bubbles and a Prima Flair button from previous SOD kits. Finally, she added some fuschia and white sequins from her stash. Here are some close-ups!

Sandi's gorgeous floral fantasty project....

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a gorgeous creation by Sandi Smith.....

She used the beautiful Graphic 45 papers for this as it was perfect for this old photo of her brother, cousin and her! She did lots of layering and fussy cutting.
Here are a few closeups.
a gorgeous cluster


She outlined the stamped circles and the butterfly wings with the liquid pearls in the kit ...such a pretty color!

The twine and yellow trim are a perfect match for those beautiful papers!!

The background colors are from the March Color add on, the February SOD Color addon and mists from my stash.

I love the Large Clock Face from Prima

I used the mists from the color add on the background!
