I have wanted to share but have been swapped!
I started with the picture as my inspiration. When I started working on this, I really struggled-I believe it came from the thoughts
there was no way of creating a LO worthy enough
to express the moment/subject matter which I was scrapping!

I started by framing and layering the photo onto the papers. The layering is with five pieces of paper. I start by adhering the photo to a “scrap virgin paper” (non-inked, non-torn and non-distressed). The scrap is usually a “good to high” quality scrap piece of paper- (This is a great way to start using up the scrap pieces of paper you have laying around in your stash.)

Once the photo is firmly adhered with spray glue- (the only glue I have found that will not shift, holds firmly into place without drying too quickly, just in case I need to remove and reposition the photo) I start tearing around the photo, letting the frame come natural by tearing-I usually will ink the edges-but not on this LO.

I then started the layering process of the frame by adhering, tearing then inking, until I get a layered frame I like. I find best to layer most of the papers in the direction of the photo (landscape or portrait), however, I always find placing at least one of the layers in the opposite direction, creates variety and gives the frame some visual rhythm. In addition, it is better to layer with odd numbers of layers-which is more visually pleasing to the eye- this is an old art trick!

Once I finished the photo frame, I stitched everything together with one line of decorative stitch.( the teal ZIG zag on the left side on the black paper). Next to the stitch, I added a rub-on and then stamped the top edge of the black paper with white ink and a rubber stamp.

I then cut a circle and used a “Fiskers” punch to create the lace design edge on the blue circle- just under the second flower- I then glued the cut circle and the paper doily to the paper.-yes I inked both before adhering to the paper. I then glued the photo and the frame to the paper.

I next started stamping the edges with a rubberstamp and ink.

The next step is where I spent most of my time on the LO- the hand painting and masking (which love to do). On this LO, I used white and Burnt Sienna paint to create and enhance the paper’s design. I start by “Scumbling”- which is an art term for softening the colors or outlines of a painting or drawing by covering with a film of opaque or semi-opaque color by rubbing-in my case with a dry brush and paint. I love the technique-I find it always results in a softness that yields the look of a cloud or smoke.

I next used an embossing pen and embossing powder to create the flourishes-the big gold/cream flourishes. - (some were created with a stencil and some were created by freehand). When working with the embossing pen, I find you have to work in sections, because regardless of the embossing manufacturer, the ink will dry too quickly and you will not yield a clean design or result.

I then started working in the flower section- I never spend much on flowers; usually I pick up some cheap silk flower bouquet at a local discount store and tear them apart-which one flower on the bouquet will give you anywhere between three-four flowers for a LO. I use a hot glue gun to adhere the flower layers together than added a clipboard circle and metal brad to the center of the flower.

I then went into my backyard and grabbed a couple pieces of Ornamental grasses and glued them under the flowers. I then used the metal pieces of wire from the flower bouquet and wrapped them around a pencil so they would curl; then glued a jewel to the end of each piece of wire. I then glued the wire to the paper within the flower section.

I added an angel embellishment to the flower-which came from a cheap button package.

I next added a sticker, on the right hand bottom corner and then another rub-on “the bird” under the title. I then glued the metal word “peace” to the photo, added the yellow cream colored embellishment under the bottom flower.

Finally, I added the title-which is a piece of transparency I printed from Microsoft word on my computer. I know this is long and I hope it is helpful. If you have any question Please ask!

Here is how to heat-stamp Fun Foam: Choose a piece of fun foam (if you use tan foam and dark brown ink the results look like leather!), a stamp, and one color of ink. You also need a heat gun. Ink the stamp well, but not overly soaked. Turn on the heat gun and direct the hot air onto the foam for several seconds, gently moving it from side to side in an area big enough for the image ~NOT in one spot~. When you see the foam start to get shiny/sparkly, and the edges begin to curl up, quickly shut off the gun, and immediately stamp the foam with your pre-inked stamp.Press firmly. When you lift the stamp, the image will be embossed into the foam. That is how I made the pink Eiffel Tower. :-)
I am enjoying all the creative energy you ladies are sharing!

So happy your here Suepup! Thanks sooo much for the time you gave to give the steps for your lo. You know where you stand with me girlfriend! Look forward to having you participate! Hugs! (Could you tell me what your name is so I can post it on the first page along with your screen name?)Thks

Yeah! Another lo from Shawn. That tower is the cutest thing! Thanks for the how to with the foam.I have a recollection that I read or heard somewhere that some use a hairdryer for this method. Is that possible? Great lo with the memory embellies. So sweet. Does the foam have to be a paticular kind?

Jackie, I had a heck of a time with glimmer mist at first. I realized that you really need to shake it well. I also find that applying it with a artist brush works best for me. That way I can control it! I use a foil pie pan(so i can re-use) & spray it in there, then apply.
For this lo I used a foam makeup wedge full of ink then dipped it in glimmer mist then applied to letters. I try to use a color that is similar to the ink. The ink I used was Adirondack butter Scotch & the glimmer mist was Suede. It gave it a shimmer!
I have also used a small brayer. Spraying rows of diff colors.. it blends nicely when rolled.
I have never had any luck spraying it directly on.. I would like to hear from anyone who sprays it directly on!! Lynn

oh, thank you SO much lynn, that glimmer spray was testing my patience! i was so excited to get it, and when i opened it and started test spraying it on pprs, i was confused; all it was doing was soaking my paper and i wasnt getting much of a "glimmer" at all....fantastic idea with the sponges, definitely going to try that technique.
one more question, can you apply multiple coats of it to make it more glimmery? im guessing that you'd have to wait until it dries completely, but was just wondering if thats how you got it to work so beautifully?

Boy am I learning a lot from this thread! I've never heard of liquid pearls, so thanks Irene. I am just in awe of your work, so maybe liquid pearls would help me approach your work!

Lynne, I have been wondering how you would use glimmer mist, and so appreciate your tip! Love the effect on your alphas!



Jackie, I had a heck of a time with glimmer mist at first. I realized that you really need to shake it well. I also find that applying it with a artist brush works best for me. That way I can control it! I use a foil pie pan(so i can re-use) & spray it in there, then apply.
For this lo I used a foam makeup wedge full of ink then dipped it in glimmer mist then applied to letters. I try to use a color that is similar to the ink. The ink I used was Adirondack butter Scotch & the glimmer mist was Suede. It gave it a shimmer!
I have also used a small brayer. Spraying rows of diff colors.. it blends nicely when rolled.
I have never had any luck spraying it directly on.. I would like to hear from anyone who sprays it directly on!! Lynn

Lovable You!
By Foamy





oh, thank you SO much lynn, that glimmer spray was testing my patience! i was so excited to get it, and when i opened it and started test spraying it on pprs, i was confused; all it was doing was soaking my paper and i wasnt getting much of a "glimmer" at all....fantastic idea with the sponges, definitely going to try that technique.
one more question, can you apply multiple coats of it to make it more glimmery? im guessing that you'd have to wait until it dries completely, but was just wondering if thats how you got it to work so beautifully?








hope this link works for you, scroll down it has a video, to watch, they were mixing colors but drying the first color with a hair dryer

No new techniques here, just a few tips...I couldnt find the right color rhinestones for this LO, so I used my silver/clear rhinestones and used Tim Holtz alcohol inks to color them...Perfect match...I layered my pumpkin in sections to give it dimension...I curled thin strips of pp around a thin paintbrush for the curls, used pop dots under die cut leaves for more dimension...ran the stem through a wavy crimper to give it texture...inked all edges and put it all together...Lisa...TFL

Really great ideas Lisa! Like the tone downed Fall colors. Very nice! Your such a clever girl!! Im wondering, is it necessary to purchase the name brand inks, like Tim Holtz ? Has anyone tried for example to color a clear gem with another kind of ink?

SUZIE SNOWFLAKE
By Bettylou1

In this acrylic lo i want to talk about the flowers... Jackie(Anderjackie) and myself have had a little disagreement over who did this first! she says she got the idea from me and i say i got the idea from her! LOL...who knows! we may have gotten it from someone else but i try to give credit where credit is due..LOL anyhoo..
the flowers in this lo are velum punched out with a flower punch..then i used a white signo pen to outline them and then outlined them again with a glue pen and glittered them..i wanted something to resemble frosty like winter and none of the flowers i had seemed to work so i made these..
it is really easy to do! just adding the white pen looks good too without the giltter...here is a close up also!
SUZY SNOWFLAKE..........CLOSE UP
By Bettylou1 sorry that black is not part of the lo..i couldnt get a great closeup shot of it si i tried a little dark behind it! that didnt work very well either! anyone know how to get a better shot of acrylic lo's??
i'm getting so many great tips and ideas from this thread! thanks everyone!

This is stunning. It doesn't matter who did it first. As far as I know, we're all here to share. Btw, I have the same incident with someone's layout too. It seems that we've both used the same technique and I've created the layout months ago, just couldn't share it online before the mfg's debut on it....lol!
Congrats on the toot!

Happy Sunday girls!! Sorry to hear you've been sick Patti and Betty. Hope your feeling somewhat better! Just reminded me it's that time of the year for that stuff.

Want to say that as well as your activity on this thread helping so many people learn, your making someone very happy as well! Very pleased with the way the thread is going and can't thank you girls enough! Receiving so many views. Your really are the cream of the crop!! HEHE! I just made a joke! Get it??/ Love you guys!

Will be back later tonight to look at your los, DH and I have some work to do with some branches going to the U.S.


PS/ I have a couple of los I have to do for challenges this month, so maybe I can incorporate some of your ideas this time.

Ok I finally found time to scrap!
I´ve been working extra this past month, and my children demand to be fed and clothed... and cuddled.. and I´m getting married next saturday! So I´ve been crazy busy, but I finally managed to make a LO and post it!
So here it is:
url=http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/layout/ 1800019.html][/url] Cuddling By Piscine
This one is all about the layering. The LO is made from a sketch from www.inspiredblueprints.typepad.com. I used for the background a beautiful pp from Bo Bunny , layered pp from Pink Paislee on top and another Bo Bunny pp for the long ppstripe.
I tried to match the pp to the photo I used, with the brown as my main color. I never really care about always using pp from the same manufacturer. I try to find pps that compliment each other and enable the photo to be the focal point of the LO. I then layered the big white lace and the golden lace, putting felt ribbon (queen and co) on top to sort of connect them. The flowers are from prima, the lettering from Making Memories and I finished by putting stickles (glitter glue) in the doodling in the top right corner to make it "pop" a little bit.
I hope I´m explaining myself right This is quite a simple LO in the making, so not a lot of technique involved.
Hope to do something more "technique-ish" soon
Best, Hildur.

Welcome Hildur!! So glad you finally made it! Thanks for the tips on your lo. I love the way the pp compliments your pic. I usually try to do that also when scrapping, but usually have a hard time for some reason HAHA! I guess the best thing to do is pick the picture u want to scrap and go shopping for the pp. Can't go wrong that way.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work, and best wishes for you and DH next Sat.

the flowers in this lo are velum punched out with a flower punch..then i used a white signo pen to outline them and then outlined them again with a glue pen and glittered them..i wanted something to resemble frosty like winter and none of the flowers i had seemed to work so i made these..
it is really easy to do! just adding the white pen looks good too without the giltter...here is a close up also!
SUZY SNOWFLAKE..........CLOSE UP
By Bettylou1 sorry that black is not part of the lo..i couldnt get a great closeup shot of it si i tried a little dark behind it! that didnt work very well either! anyone know how to get a better shot of acrylic lo's??
i'm getting so many great tips and ideas from this thread! thanks everyone!



how beautiful! it looks frosty! I love how you did the vellum flowers! What a creative idea!
great work

It's another of my Prima GDT assignment. I've used the splattered paint technique on the flower.


i love the spattered paint & your photos are always altered beautifully to go with your lo's!
Great work
