I have painted them both with white gesso. Then when they are dry cover with clear glue and then sprinkle your glitter over the top. Let this dry completely or your will have glitter everywhere. I mixed bublegum and Raspberry glitter together to get the colour I wanted.

Baby Photo Frame

Welcome again everyone. 
Today I am bringing you a tutorial for Memory Maze
I have only just got my very first Grand baby, her name is Zarna Rose.
So very proud luv her to bits.

I have had this frame in my stash for a while.
I am quite sure most of you can relate to that lol.
This stand was blue and I have a grand daughter 
so I painted it with white acrylic paint
 I gave this two coats and before the second coat was dried
 I sprinkled the sparkle embossing powder over the top and heat set it.

Using the scrolls, the scroll along the bottom, circle and word
I covered with white gesso
 then I mixed the pink and the shabby white embossing powders together
 and covered them all well and heat set again.

Glue all together including the flowers along the bottom using a good strong glue
I placed a photo behind the circle and glued the word onto the front.
I matted the other photos using white cardstock
and placed onto the stand.

Hello everyone once again it is my turn to give you a tutorial for Off the Rails
The photo is of my daughter son and daughter-in-law
a fine bunch of kids.
All dressed up and off to the local races.

I firstly covered my white cardstock with clear gesso. 
I then used two masks, I used the circle mask first then the rose one over the top.
When these where completely dry I used the Lindy's sprays and a spray water bottle to make the colours run.

When this is completely dry I added some collectable flowers under the photo. My photo is 4 1/2 x 6 inches I used glue to glue to the page 

I used some left over chipboard letters from my stash, painted them with white gesso. 
Then covered them with clear glue and sprinkled on the glass glitter. When these where dry I went around the edges with some black ink.
Add your flowers, leaves, the title and then I splashed around some black ink.

Hello another month has quickly gone by nearly the end of August already
wow.... I am sharing with you all my layout that I have completed for Memory Maze
a little Queensland chipboard company form Hervey Bay.

Firstly I have started with some pattern paper and cut this down half inch two sides, then using the martha stewart border punch, punch messy around your edges. Then tape this to the white cardstock.

I mixed some white gesso with water and brushed the background as I wanted to calm the background down a bit.

I have used Patina texture paste and the mask and applied onto the layout. Let this dry well I used a heat gun and made it bubble. You know how I like the texture thing going on.

Now for thr oval frame, heart pieces and the word Sunshine coat well with the white gesso.
I used the Merci Beaucoup embossing powder on the oval frame and heart pieces.
Then the Silver Moon Mistletoe embossing powder on the hearts and the word Sunshine.

Glue all these pieces onto your background then add your flowers and splatter with some white ink.
Don't forget to cover your photo.

Christmas Tags

Wow how the year is flying it will soon be Christmas before we know it. So I have decided to try and get ahead and do some tags for some special people in my life. 
This weeks Christmas tag tutorial is for Memory Maze

I have dived into my mighty stash and found some Christmas decoration and Merry Christmas chipboard words. All the tags are 6 1/4 x 3 1/8 inches and I have used my christmas stash. Firstly paint all the chipboard pieces with white gesso.

Tag 1
Using the bauble decoration and the Merry Christmas word. I squeezed some red, green and gold kindy glitz onto a plate then using my finger daube all over the chipboard pieces. When that is dry use some white opal liquid pearls and daube around the outside of each bauble etc.Even on the Merry Christmas word. I have used some green cardstock cut to the size required then some Christmas paper, embossed white cardstock, fancy border and a stamped frame to complete the tag.

Tag 2

Using the raindeer / tree decoration and the Merry Christmas word cover withsome Perlen pen its like perfect pearls and a paint brush, brush over the chippboard pieces. When this is dry add some crystalina kindy glitz to the tree and gold perfect pearls around the edge and when that is completely dry cover with some dimensional magic.
 I used some red cardstock, christmas paper , embossed white cardstock, stamped image to make this tag.

Tag 3

I had some smooch in my stash and needed to use it so I covered the Merry Christmas word and decoration. When this was dry it took a while but dried finally. I put some gold kindy glitz on my finger and daubed it around the decoration and on the word.
