2016 in Review: Pretty Patterned Paper Playground

Hello friends! I can’t believe 2016 is gone. Can you? It seems like only yesterday I was celebrating New Years 2016. One of the most exciting things that happened this past year was the commencement of my YouTube series with Evi, Pretty Patterned Paper Playground. Evi and I get together every month and scrapbook together, we then post our videos to both of our YouTube channels. Every month we have a mood board we follow and some months we had challenges as well. Evi and I met late 2015 through YouTube. We became instant friends. Over this past year we have grown even closer. It has been such fun scrapbooking with her and getting to know her. We created a Facebook Group called Pretty Patterned Paper Playground so that our friends and followers could join us and play along with our monthly mood boards. It was an awesome year. Here is an overview of our mood boards and what I created this past year for our series. I’ll  link some of the related products under each month.fullsizerender3

March 2016- Our very first month. We were so excited to get started. Our mood board was very Spring appropriate. I had a lot of fun creating it. We scrapped together for the first time. We had a lot of fun! We decided we’d create a second layout a month but we would post on each others channels. Evi posted her video on my channel, I posted my video on hers. We challenged ourselves to scraplift an awesome layout by Missy Whidden.

This months challenge was to scraplift each other. Check out my video on Evi’s channel and Evi’s video on my channel. Evi and I loved this months mood board so much that we created a bonus layout.

June 2016- Oh Citrus colors how I love thee! Living in a tropical place it’s no surprise this mood board was a favorite of mine. I used it to scrap a few photos from a Cruise vacation stop in Barbados. You can see my video on Evi’s channel and Evi’s video on my channel. Our challenge was to use lots of alphas and create a long tittle. Here you can watch us scrap together.

Halloween 2016-Art Party Friday

12138485_705950913228_347815577822020753_o

Hello everyone! I am sharing this layout I created for The Crafty Maven Getaway. Today is Art Party Friday. I decided to use a mix of the Halloween Mood board and this weeks mood for my layout.

I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I did not prime my page with Gesso, I usually never do. My inspiration for the layout also came from an older Basic Grey Halloween/Fall chipboard set. I began began by getting a little messy and creating my background. I grabbed a piece of packaging and stared by creating the green color that was in the chipboard set. I mixed two Lyndy’s stamp Gang mists, Ponderosa Pines Olive and My Mojito Green. I then added in some yellow from my inexpensive watercolor set. I also used the Lindy’s Stamp Gang in Red Hot Poker Orange and one of my Shimmerz Vibez in Plum Tuckered Out. I added some splatters in the orange and purple as well as some splatters with black India Ink. I felt like my background was not complete. I took my Ranger Water Color Brush and added some shading with Grey from my inexpensive Michaels Artist Loft Pan set.

 

I layered a black piece of cardstock behind my photo and I added a few patterned papers from an older Studio Calico 6×6 paper pad. I then used a few of the Basic Grey chipboard pieces including a spooky tree that I just love and an oval frame. I didn’t want to over do it. I wanted the photo and the background to be the main focus. I also added a few bats from the Crate Paper After Dark Glitter Foam Word Thickers.

fullsizerender-37

For my tittle I used Black circle Basic Grey Letter Stickers which are from the B-side Collection. then I used some Glitter Thickers numbers to write out 2016. I used my black India Ink and a brush to color them black. I then scattered around a few Tim Holtz Tiny word stickers and one from a Teresa Collins letter sticker sheet.

fullsizerender-38

As a finishing touch I trimmed off a half inch all around and matted my photo on a Crate Paper black and white patterned paper. I love how my background and layout turned out.

Rachel Stewart- http://wp.me/p5zmxq-gs
Katty Miranda——You are here

For my layout  I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock . I used a Teresa Collins triangle stencil with some Acrylic Gloss Medium. This created a subtle embossed look on my cardstock. I flipped the stencil around and placed the stencil over the Gloss medium background. I made sure to place it over the areas where there were no triangles. I used three of my favorite Shimmerz DazzlerzDreamscicleTutti Frutti and Sea U in the Mornin.

I then printed a series of 3 photos of my adorable niece and cut them into triangle shapes. I backed my photos with some mint colored scotch washi tape which I placed on white cardstock as well as a gray and white patterned paper from an old Studio Calico Paper Pad.

FullSizeRender (76)

I added a few embelishments from my stash mainly from the My Minds Eye on Trend Collection. Some of the triangle pieces of ephemera I made into shaker triangles using the new beautiful Mocha Mint Dream Sequins.

FullSizeRender (78)

I also used some ephemera words from the same collection for my tittle. I just added the die cut words to some velum and traced them with a black sharpie pen. I also added a tag from my stash behind it. I added some tangled mint thread in three areas and I finished off my layout with the new thin Chunky Cork Stars and the Chunky Cork Hearts, to half of the hearts I added Gold Stardust Sequins.

For my layout I began with 12×12 American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I am scrapbooking a photo of my adorable niece being her silly self. I had a thought of an all white layout. I began by creating a fun unique background with a stencil and Gloss Medium. While the gloss medium was wet I sprinkled some of the beautiful Glass Slippers Sequins on top and let them dry with the gloss medium.

As a photo mat I used one of the White Lace Paper Doilies and a Large Glassine Bag which I folded on one end so create some texture. I decided to bring some grey, silver and light pink into the mix.

FullSizeRender (61)

I added a few sticker embellishments from my stash which I placed on some fun foam and then fussy cut out. I also scattered around some of the Felt-Fetti Hearts in white and two of the new colors, light and dark grey.

 

I also added the silver stars from the Alma Mater Sequin Mix and the light Pink ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix. I added my tittle using  a silver word from a Thickers pack and I also used some of the silver arrows and hearts from that pack.

FullSizeRender (62)

 

I added some silver ink splatters and some detailing with a dark grey American Crafts pen. Finally, I matted the whole layout on a Grey and white Patterned Paper from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge paper pad.
