Stars by Suzanne Franin

Hi there Suzanne here

I was inspired by this quote and the deck chair seemed perfect for this project I could see myself sitting outside at night looking up at the stars

I used black gesso for the background and around the saying to blend it in

I added some Lindy's Magicals to the background and I used Pewter Liquid Drops for the stars

After I painted the chair silver I used Buttercup Liquid Drops to give it some texture

I used the Deck Chair from the Memory Memory Maze Store 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will be back soon xx

Hi everyone, 

It's my turn up on the Memory Maze blog today with a grungy boy layout featuring some awesome grunge arrows, tag frame and circle title and dot stencil.

Here are some close ups of the finer details!

I painted the chipboard pieces with the same lovely metallic paint as the background and included a little black here and there to match the black circles.

I also used a graduating dot stencil from Memory Maze with black texture paste to create texture over the top of metallic paint.

Here are some of the gorgeous Memory Maze Products used -

Sun Surf and Sand- By Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone!
Leanne back to share another project with you today using Memory Maze
Chipboard products.

Sun Surf and Sand
Sharing another beach layout with you today, of my daughters Holly and Alannah. We had a little day trip over the summer holidays to Sorrento, a lovely little spot for a picnic and swimming and a little beach cricket. The girls took a little stroll out on the pier, so I snapped this casual photo of them.

I used the Memory Maze Spots and Dots stencil in the background, with some art ingredient micro and glass beads, I also used some of the chipboard fish from the Mermaid Miniature chipboard set.
I've used the Sun Surf and Sand Title for my page which I used several different colours of embossing powders.
I embellished the corner of my photo with some collectables, glass beads, muslin and some flowers.
Along with my Memory Maze title and some of the starfish from the Mermaid miniature chippy pack.

Sally here for my post titled FAMILY TIMES

Sally here for my post, titled FAMILY TIMES for Memorymaze laser cuts.

Have you ever sat down designed away , happy with what you saw , walk away and come back and wonder what in blazes you thought you were doing.
Was obviously trying too hard, had to change backgrounds mid stream and it just wasn't working.

I was working with one of the Memory maze printer tray frames and love the finished product, all finished and I ditched through the  background for a plain black. Happy as.

Make a Wish for Memory Maze Design by Suzanne Franin

Hi Suzanne here to share my latest canvas

I had lots of fun doing this one
I love layers and texture and getting messy 

I found this image online and I loved the water colour affect it has 

I love these feathers but have another idea for them and didn't want to wasted the little bits from the centres
I gessoed the canvas and added some muslin over it to add some layers then stuck the centres  randomly over the canvas making sure to leave room for the image
I love all things rusty so I used a product called rusty paper on the canvas blending it in around the image  then added some brown paint to give more depth to the texture

I used some Sweet Treats Tiffany Lou's Magicals on the background to give it a bit of a  patina look 

I also used the Sweet Treats Magicals on the letters and other embellishments I love all the colours one sprinkle can give

Here are the products I used 

 I used three different alphabet sets to do my title 

I used the @ symbol cut down for the a from this set

Thanks for stopping by I hope you will be back soon xx

'Super Star' by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone, 

Happy Sunday!

School holidays are here and if you have school aged children and a bit of time off over the holidays - it's crafting time :-) 

My turn up on the blog today with a boy mixed media layout using the awesome 'Totally Rad' paper collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and an equally awesome DIY star embellishment from Charms Creations. Check out the links below to the lovely list of products used from Memory Maze including my new favourites the chipboard stars - so versatile!

To create the star background, I used the Memory Maze mini Star stencil with Dusty Charcoal Colour Blast paste and splatters of Sunshine Colour Blast Shimmer Spray. 

I also coloured the chipboard in black versafine ink to go with my yellow, grey and black colour scheme. Little pops of yellow and gold stars, splatters and paper complete the layout!

Here are some close ups of the finished layout -
