October reveal with Alicia Barry

This month I have just returned from travelling in Europe, and I have taken so many photos, so while I try to get the family back into some kind of normal routine, I am very excited to have new photos to scrap (and I do mean hundreds of photos).

 Sunshine in my soul. 

We stayed in a beautiful castle in the French countryside and the property was a perfect background for some new photos of the kids. I have used Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower papers which I have accentuated with pretty flourish chipboard.

While we were away, Cameron in particular would climb up on everything he could find, so we figure we may as well turn it into a photo op. I love the styling of the old lamps in Paris, and love the Eiffel Tower just hanging out in the background.

For the chipboard lamp, I inked randomly in a bout 4 different shades of brown, then embossed with Metallic Melts in 4 more different colours. The lettering has been inked in two colours.

Last up is a pretty little card using a vintage. I have coated it in white ink, then white embossing powder and lastly some random little swipes of glitter to finish it off.

Donna's October Projects

Hello all,  It's my turn today to share some projects I have been creating.  I have created three projects this month to share,  a layout, some pocket pages and a card.  Hope you enjoy.

* * * * * * * * * * *


I love playing with mixed media products and memory maze chipboard works perfectly with many of the products out there on the market

I have painted the cherry blossom with Ranger distress paint and then stamped it with archival black ink for texture.

I broke my cherry blossom up so I could spread it over my layout.

I used leaves from a sheet set and again painted them with ranger distress paint, this time i used a few different colors.  I inked the edges with distress ink and then found a different stamp and stamped to add texture.

* * * * * * * * * *


Lately I have been trying to organise my many boxes of photos and trying to get them into albums.  I liked the pocket page idea as I can get more photos in and tell the story with little effort.  I keep it very simple and then have been adding 12 by 12 layouts to the albums to.

I cut this title up as it was all joined together and would not fit into the pockets.  I love how this has turned out,  you would not think I had cut them up.  As with the layout I have painted my chipboard to suit the colours of my photos.

Splash had a big splash attached to the H.  For the life of me I could not get the colouring right so I just removed it.  which also allowed me to attached the word down one of the cards instead of across.

My wee man is all grown up now but I remember this day so easily.  He was so excited to see all the water and no matter how hard I tried to actually get him in the pool,  he preferred  to play around it.  He is such a wee cutie.

I cut my chipboard up so I could spread it out over the two pockets to make it my focal point, 
 again this has just been painted.

I love how this turned out!  I had to Google image the van to see where the chrome went.  I then used and embossing pen and added the detail.  I embossed it with a silver embossing powder and then painted.  LOVE IT!

Tracey Campbell's October Reveal

Hello and welcome to my October reveal. I have been having a bit of a messy play this month with mist, gesso and my favourite chipboard this month.
My first layout is of my eldest daughter Bronte, I really wanted to have a beautiful feminine look to this layout I used the chipboard lace doily and the mirror. I used the doily as a mask with some gesso on the back ground layout before flipping it and stamping a light image of it onto the water painted cardstock.
For the mirror and the decorative boarder I used some gold leafing and carefully applied it to the chipboard to give a beautiful metallic look.

The chipboard word title Captured Moments was the final touch, I simply used my Gelatos and gave it a nice soft pink tone.

For this card I used some bright pink ink and simply inked the bear and the heart, as I did not tread the chipboard a lot of the brightness was taken out of the ink, giving it the perfect shade. For the chipboard tittle Precisions Baby I inked it yellow then applied a layer of fine yellow glitter over the top.

The finishing touchers were some washi tape and a bit of stamping.

For my final layout this month I wanted to create a pink and purple back ground to go with the t-shirt my youngest daughter Paige and her friend Ashley is wearing, but because they are still quiet young I wanted to create a fun feeling. So I applied random letters and number to the cardstock then attacked it with mist and gesso.
 One of the main things I love about using chipboard is that it is so flexible and forgiving. I actually cut apart a word title that read "Little Mr Attitude" and changed it to suit my photo of Little Miss Attitudes, which is more suiting to these two in the photo.

 Little Miss Attitudes

These two are only a few months apart and both have huge beautiful personalities and get along so well. I wish we could catch up with them more now that they have moved away...hopefully they remain good friends forever.
