Family is the Best - layout by Lynn Good

Hi everyone,

Lynn here today to share a 12x12 layout that I have created.

To create my background I have cut some round 1"circles from the 7 dots Hazy days paper collection and placed them around the layout where my photo will be.  I then used a Paper Artsy Stamp and stamped randomly around the layout.

Using Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Lemon, sky and lime I coloured the stamps in.

I have used a Memory Maze Chipboard - Retro frame which I cut up to suit my layout better,  I covered them with a white gesso and then used three different embossing powders to match the background.

With a black pen I traced around the circles that I had punched an adhered to the background.

Here are some more close ups:

Paper - 7 dots Hazy Days

Fairies are everywhere you just have to look ...

Our grass was very damp and we had some fairies move in so I made sure I snapped some photos 

I found some little plastic mushrooms and painted them

The fairies wings have the Microfine White Glitter painted on them

The frame was painted with the new Ranger oxide inks

Sweet Butterly Dreams- by Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone

Leanne here to share a mixed media canvas with you today, using the wonderful Memory Maze chipboard products. The photo is of my daughter Alannah taken at Melbourne Zoo a few years ago. It was actually photographed in the butterfly enclosure, quite fitting for this canvas.

Sweet Butterfly Dreams

To create this canvas I used some tissue papers and old sewing patterns, I sprayed the canvas with some Lindys stamp gang sprays and used some colour shots from Lindys as well. I used the Beautiful Sweet Butterfly Dreams Frame/ overlay from Memory Maze. And finished the canvas with some flowers, beads and some fussy cut butterflies.

I used the Memory Maze Sweet Butterfly Dreams Frame and Overlay for my canvas, which I painted black to coat the chipboard. I then used a black detail embossing powder for the title and the chipboard butterflies.
Title embossed and highlighted with a metallic gelato.
The Butterflies embossed and painted with Twinkling H2os and decorated with Art ingredient Beads.

Shorts, Hats and leaves and flowers.

I LOVE Spring.

Sharing it here with my beautiful Grand Daughter Maddison

I have used one of the new Memory maze Shaker box kits here 
they come with a decorative frame and Acrylic bubble,and are just so easy to use.
Can be used for both Scrap booking and Card Making.
These are available in a variety of shapes and styles

I have used this frame in its small size, cut in half and one half in quarters . These I have used on the top corners, Gesso and stamp pad coloured with Memory Maze glimmer powder.
This is a very versatile piece.

I handmade the flowers on this layout from co coordinating papers 

The script large words are fabulous to complete a layout. There are numerous
designs in these words to choose from

Butterfly Dreams Pretty in Pink

Hello everyone Jan here again with a layout using some of the amazing products from Memory Maze.

I started forming the background for this layout by painting my chipboard pieces with Gesso and allowing them to dry. Whilst this was happening I used two separate stencils to add texture to the background.

I then took the butterfly Dreams chipboard frame and embossed it with multi coloured pink embossing powders, once this was done I added the frame to the page and drew where I wanted it to sit, I have then added some cheese cloth that I have coloured along with ribbons and assorted flowers to form the area for my photos and frame.

I have then started to add different elements to my design along with the pretty in pink theme.

I have added some pearls to highlight the butterflies.

 Thanks for looking, please check back soon for more design ideas from the 2017 Memory Maze design team.
