Hello, Hello...

...Hello and happy Friday! I have a layout to share today, created using May's Build  A Page sketch over on the Prima blog. I had lots of fun playing around and altering for this LO.

...and the sketch...

I've used mulberry tissue paper for texture, which I covered in diluted Dusty Concord Crackle paint (it was more for the colour than the crackle) plus splodges and splats with Luminarte mica powders.

Lots of fun using the chalkboard frames, cut out from a sheet of "You & Me" 12x12 paper from Prima's Optimist collection. I love the pops of colour against the black!

I've used the Free Spirit ATC cards in various ways, cutting out a hole and using as a frame for one of the photos and cutting the "Hello" from one of the cards.

I like how a lot of the elements to this page came together unexpectedly, that's the fun part right?

Tutorial #2 - Steampunk Sea

Hello! Today's post is following on from my previous post, continuing my video tutorial sharing month of May, so here is tutorial #2! From a personal point of view, I always enjoy watching start to finish tutorials to fully see all whats going on through each step and seeing things taking shape, which is what I have done with my videos.

My latest tutorial is a canvas I created using various goodies, from Prima Color Bloom mists, fabrics, embossing (or modelling) paste, and an unexpected apperance from some cotton wool!

Hoping you guys will enjoy it x
