Some Simple Stories

I couldn’t resist using all the stickers in a row, they are all so gorgeous! More is always a lovely idea.
I used a stencil and some texture paste to create the flowers on the background. I coloured the texture paste with Liquitex acrylic ink and then very carefully added the green on the leaves of the stencil and pink on the flowers, it was a little tricky to do whilst holding the stencil in place but worth the effort, it came up looking so pretty.
Because I layered the stickers and used foam adhesive squares to get some height, I dusted the back of the stickers with my anti static powder bag. It sorts out the stickiness and then I just add the foam squares.

Some lovely layers using mostly Simple Stories, but theres a little piece of Dear Lizzy vellum that went beautifully with everything else.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope I have inspired someone to get out the crafty stuff this weekend and make something beautiful.

White with 1 – VIVID RED

The month of Love and my 1st layout for February is inspired by the new February challenge up on White with 1.

I painted a big red heart with Liquitex heavy body paint on white card stock but it looked unfinished and too rough for the look I wanted, so I cut out the heart and machine stitched around it a couple of times.
I used my old type writer to do some journaling.
I love these little cameras, I fussy cut a couple out for embellishments.
There seems to be so many sticker sheets in my stash so I thought I would make a big effort this year to use up as much as I can. My one little word this year is REDUCE !
Soooo many cute things that get left behind for the new stuff you buy, but these beauties are still a winner in my eyes. Big letters from Basic Grey, mini alpha is My Little Shoebox.
Lots of layers using some Kaisercraft, very old Stampin’ Up and Amy Tangerine-Oh Happy Life. Thanks for visiting. I hope you are inspired to use up your stash!
