A Little Scrapbooking Inspiration

This last year has completely passed me by and given me whiplash as it did. Because of that and the holidays sneaking up I have not had the time to finish my latest project. So I decided to go a different route.

I am going to show you some the scrapbooking projects that I made but for whatever reason did not make it here or to my blog.

The first two are of canvases I made using my daughter’s prom picture. The first one is a 5×7 that I used texture medium, flowers, rhinestones, and brick chipboard pieces. The second is 10×8 and I used all the same stuff but also added netting and lace.

These next few are what I call fram-age pieces. I came up with the name by combining a framed piece of art and a scrapbook page to create a scrapbooking layout. All three are 12 x 12 and can be framed, hung on the wall or added to a scrapbook. The first one is pretty simple with just a minimal amount of stenciled on texture paste. Used red flowers for a pop of color rather than any spray or paint. The second I used a sheet of canvas resist paper, lots of spray mist and again stenciling with a heavy gel. The third is probably one of my favorites. I used a stencil and crackle gel to get the diamond pattern. Then I added just a touch of ink getting some of it in the cracks of the gel. I like the dimension that I got using this technique.

This is one of the first and only trays I have made. I purchase them when they are on sale and then hadn’t gotten around to making anything with them. When my neighbors daughter graduated last year I thought it was the perfect time to try a small tray out. I used the colors of her high school, added the year and she can add 4 pictures.

And last but not least I decorated a 12 x 12 mirror that I bought at ikea using mostly metal flowers and metal bits. Then using luminescent paints in purple and green I painted the heck out of it. Problem is with all of the shine of the paint I had a heck of a time getting a real good picture.

I hope you can forgive me for not completing and showing my latest project and maybe, just maybe find a little bit of inspiration in these other things I have completed!

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season, lots of love and happiness in the coming New Year.

Life is short, do something creative every day!
