Shop and Crop August DT First Reveal

Hi there!

Today I have a couple of projects with you that I created as part of my DT work for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking  for August!  I was super excited when I received my new DT box of goodies in the post, jam packed, where to start lol!  First up I have a layout to share with you and a little photo tutorial on how I created my Mixed Media background.  The paper collection I have used is from Pink Paislee "Take me Away".

Here's the finished page....

Some close ups of the finished layout.....

First up I mounted my patterned paper on some white cardstock just making it a bit thicker for when I apply the mixed media products.  I used the Kaiser Brick stencil and randomly applied texture paste over the page.

I then used the Colour Blast Lollipop and Duke Shimmer Dust and sprinkled them over the page (I use a palette knife to distribute the dust as when I tried to just tap the dust out it didn't end well, I had the whole pot on my page lol, this way I have total control over the amount  I put on the page!!  I did this until I was happy with the amount, you can always add more later.

Next up I spritzed the page with water to activate the colours, aren't they gorgeous colours together? I love them!  I added a little more of each colour as it wasn't quite enough..... 

I wanted my flowers to match in with the background, so I added some powder and water together.

and then painted this on my flowers with a brush and voila.......  gorgeous bright flowers, such a quick and easy way to alter the colours of your flowers if you don''t have the right colour! 

Once dry ( I have dried off each layer and the flowers with a heat tool)  I decided to add a little bit of sparkle, the Colour Blast Bling texture paste was just perfect! 

I then used some more of the Pink Paislee papers to add some layers under my photo......... 

I finished off the page with some American crafts Good Life Stickers and the flowers I coloured were from my stash!

My second page to share with you is my take on this months challenge.......  I used Frames, Stencil and Glitter and between you and me I am still finding glitter, absolutely love it, but it seems to take forever to get rid of lol!

I used the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla "Wild at Heart" Collection for this page, one of my favourites!

Some close ups.....
