Sweet Friend & Scream out Loud - the Nifty Pixel

Today I´m showing you two hybrid layouts I made using the latest kit from the Nifty Pixel. I descided to print the painted papers from the Pick your Destiny kit and love how they turned out!

For this first page I used the Pretty as a Picture vol 1 templates from Scrap Stacks. Pretty as a Picture Vol.1 is a lovely mix of designs. Some quite symmetrical like a beautifully arranged bouquet should be and others are very free form reminiscent of a just picked posy of wild flowers. This mixed pack makes them a very versatile little collection to appeal to all your design styles.

For this page I used a printed paper and printed elements from Pick Your Destiny Digital Kit, Pick Your Destiny Painted Papers & Alpha Pack

Want to know  how I made the page - visit the Nifty Pixel Blog to see my step-by-step!

Awersome - Canvas Corp Brands

When I was little coloring was one of those things that could keep me occupied for hours. When I was a bit younger than I am today, I often found myself with some younger relatives coloring books surrounded by the little big eyed owners. I even got a Mermaild´s Coloring book for my 25th birthday….. Well imagine what happened when I got my hands on the Tattered Tangles!

The Tattered Tangles are printed on mistable paper that is really heavy and give your colors a perfect base. You can use the papers as they are or cut them up to fit your project. I choose to cut up my paper and use if for a mixed media layout. If you head over to the Canvas Corp Brands Blog you can follow my Step-by-step on how I made the layout down below.

I hope that I have inspiered you to try out different ways of using the Tattered Tangles products!

Find Joy Canvas - Canvas Corp Brands

Today I am showing you this 4x4 Canvas I made for Canvas Corp Brands. Everyone in the crew made a canvas using the same base. The canvas represent our style as designers. I´m really satisfied how my turned out. Please visit the Creative Studio blog to view the others stunning work.

I covered the canvas surface with clear gesso first. Then I layered Glimmer Mists. Basically I prayed on mist, then water, then mist, dried, more water, more mist and so on until I was satisfied with the result. 

The flower was made with wire that I formed to a flower. I painted it with High Impact paint, and that drying with small bubbles gave it a really cool effect. To add even more interest I also painted on a bit of white gesso.

The Industrial Gears comes from 7 Gypsies as well as the cut out quote.
