Catching Stars Tag

Hello!! I made a tag with lot of textures and layers with the fantastic chipboard by Creative Embellishments. I took one piece from the Tag Album to create the tag.
I adhered the Catching word from the Beach Word Set 2 and all the stars with adhesive. Once everything was dry, I applied gesso over all the pieces. I gave textures on the background with the Fairy Dust stencil and modeling paste.

I selected this adorable Fairy chipboard from the Fairies   and some stars from the Buttons chipboard.

I gave more textures adding arts stones and glass beads to the tag.

You can see from this angle all the textures and dimensions.

Seabreeze Layout

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a beach  mixed media layout with you that I created with some of the fabulous Creative Embellishments chipboards.

I selected the Nautical 6 pieces set chipboard and gave a coat of gesso, after dry I took a sponge and applied Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo color to all the chipboards to create a vintage, rusty effect.  The paper is from the Double Dot collection by Bo Bunny.

I did the same techniques that I gave to the other chipboards to the word Seabreeze from the Beach Word Set 2.

I love how the different nautical pieces looks on the background.

I I gave texture on the background with a texture crackle paste with 3D powder.  Then I painted the background with Color Blooms.

You can see from this angle all the textures and dimension.

Other supplies I used:
Double Dot papers by Bo Bunny
gesso, flowers, Color Blooms, Gel medium, Crackle paste art stones, micro beads by Prima

Well I hope you find some inspiration, Thanks for stopping by….until next time!

Layered Romantic Tag- Scrapbook Adhesives

Hello scrapper friends! I'm Guest Designer at Scrapbook Adhesives for the next months and I'm going to share with you my first project using their fantastic products. I created a romantic tag with  layers of fabrics, cord and flowers that I adhered with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium and the Dual Tip Glue Pen.   Let’s take a look…
I adhered the red paper to the chipboard tag with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. The ivory paper was adhered using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Stripes.

For the layers, I added jute and cheesecloth. I adhered both with the Dual Tip Glue Pen – it’s great for adhering fabric.

Next, I adhered different flowers with the Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium.

For the finishing touch, I put a metallic tag as my title which I adhered with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

Thanks for stopping by…until next time!
