Obsessed with Katty & Christy: Season 2 Week 3

Hello friends! Christy & I are back with our third episode of Obsessed using the Maggie Holmes Shine Collection. This will be the last episode for this Season using the Shine Collection. For the next three episodes we will be using the Dear Lizzy Documentary Collection. Christy chose the four papers we used for this week. I loved the dominance of Black and White in her selection. I knew that would be interesting to work with. Besides the papers we also had a recipe challenge to use on this layout. Our Layout Recipe Included:  Mixed Media, Washi Tape, Twine, 2 pieces of chipboard and two types of thickers. The photo I am scrapping is one taken on New Years Eve 2016.

I debated whether or not to use one of the patterns in this weeks paper selection as my background. I decided to go with a white background. I wanted to bring in some texture and color to the background so I used the Mini Cubist Stencil by The Crafters Workshop. I used the stencil in two different ways. First, I used some white Modeling Paste over the stencil in a few scattered areas on my page. Then I used the same stencil and traced the small squares with a thin black Sharpie pen. I added squares until I was happy with how it looked. I then colored on the squares and randomly added pinks and yellows around the squares, that covered the mixed media. I used the three black & white papers to matt my photo. I added some black and white wash strips in three spots and a few hearts and the word together from the Chipboard Pack. I then added a few pieces from the Maggie Holmes Shine Ephemera Pack. I brought in the twine to two of the tags. For the two types of thickers I used the thickers from this same collection The Detail Thickers as well as the Puffy Alphabet Stickers.

Happy New Year 2016

Can you believe how quickly 2015 has gone? It seems like only yesterday I was celebrating New Years Eve 2015. I was scheduled on the first of January on The Crafty Maven Getaway YouTube Channel and I knew I wanted to create a project inspired by the lovely inspiration piece which reminded me of New Years Eve. The color scheme of black, silver, gold and pops of red really screamed New Years to me. I had a photo from last years New Years Eve that I hadn’t scrapped and I thought it was just perfect. Being that January 1st was a Friday, I had to follow that days theme which is Art Party Friday. I used Pearlescent Water Colors , Gelattos, Art C Molding Paste  and  Amy Tangerine Stencils to create a Firework inspired background for my photo. It is always fun to use mixed media and create fun, unique backgrounds for my Scrapbooking Layouts. Thanks for stopping by, May 2016 be a fantastic year.
