          My “Something I Love” is my daughter.

          null

          I love stamping, watercolouring, and making flowers, so those were the things that I added for that part of the challenge.

          For mixed media, I watercoloured the rose cluster on the photo, did some painting and stamping on the paper, and added stenciling with crackle paste.

          The “celebration” was my middle son’s wedding.

          Old stash was the diamond frame die, and the crystal flourishes.

          It was a very fun challenge! Thank you Kim!

            February RR-posting early since tomorrow is Super Bowl. So, we had the option to go grungy-I did. Lots of metals, micro beads, glass beads, gesso, Art Alchemy paints, Ferro paste, Smooch, Glimmer Mist, foil, and even some flowers and cheese cloth for good measure. Background was randomly stamped with several Prima stamps for interest. Roger and I celebrating with friends on a summer bike ride.

            I love to hoard my metals so I went crazy in the Finnabair style here. Also, love my beads and paints but I busted them out for this one.

            You rock the grunge look Jan! Love this! I wasn’t brave enough to do grunge.

              Well, here is a celebration picture and I’ll admit that I’ve scrapped this photo of my wedding day before, but it just seemed so perfect for this theme.

              I dug deep into my paper stash and came up with two sheets from the August 2013 kit and an even older sheet that was part of a RAK that Swirly Mother Robin sent me in 2010.
              Because I wanted to do some heavy stenciling, I first applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my base paper (Splash of Color #30302 Beautiful). The stencil itself is one of my favorites – Natural Flourish by Layers of Color; I used Ranger Grit Paste as my medium.
              While that was drying, I cut a doily with the Summer Picnic paper from Prima’s Strawberry Kisses collection using Cheery Lynn’s English Tea Party die. I also selected a few metal pieces and after giving them a coat of gesso, colored them with Prima Metallique paint in Vintage Rose.
              I cut a few pieces from the second Splash of Color paper (Devotion #30304) and after lightly distressing them, I placed them under the photo, adhering a thin piece of chipboard under each layer to give it dimension.
              Before adding my embellishments, I decided to add a bit of stamping – just a hint – that would appear under my cluster of blooms and vines; I used my favorite script stamp by Inkadinkadoo.
              The flowers that I used to embellish my layout are all some of my favorites from Prima that I’ve had for a while. The beautiful chipboard underneath is Flourish 10 by Creative Embellishments, treated with a heavy coat of gesso. This is actually quite a large piece; I cut it in half and placed the vines side by side.
              To fill in my cluster, I adhered Prima glass beads in Plum here and there around the flowers.
              The “Celebrate” piece – also covered with gesso – is part of Creative Embellishment’s Celebrate Word Set.
              I’ve added a sprinkling of Prima Pearls II and some wood heart icons to finish my page.

              I can’t rave enough about this Peggy, because it is exquisite from top to bottom! Absolutely PERFECT!

                I have a question for you guys… do you think the white frame on my layout is “too” white? I like things to be more “blendy” and I can’t get used to it popping out like that. Was wondering if I should have used a pink paper for the frame? There’s parts of this layout that I like and parts that I’m not sure about. LOL.

                  My “Something I Love” is my daughter.

                  Your daughter is gorgeous, Linda! and so is your layout!!!! I love the background stenciling and the beautiful hearts and bling. And to answer your question, no, the frame is NOT “too” white; I love how it makes your photo pop out so well.

                  A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

                    Linda, I think your layout is lovely and the frame too.
                    Love the colors and the beautiful photo of your daughter.

                    And I got to lift this layout.

                        Awesome layout ladies.

                        Jan, I love the grundginess of this. Plus you know i love the metals and the flowers you added for just a touch of softness.

                        Peggy great masking, love the paper for an amazing photo.

                        Linda, great photo scrapped and framed so perfectly.

                            Oh Peggy this is so gorgeous! So soft and romantic. Love the flourish texture paste swirl and the gorgeous chippy vines under the equally gorgeous flower cluster.
