New Design Team Starts

Today is my first official post as part of the new Memory Maze Design Team, Exciting news is that the team starts today, every 2 days we will have something new for you.

"The one that didn't get away"

I guess everyone has at once heard the saying the one that got away, well not this time. My mum made this photo using my 2 youngest girls.

Lots of memory Maze chipboard of this page.

Once again Ive used a circle out of the circle frames pack, there are so many circles in the pack its great value for money. This time I have used texture paste on the circle and then inked it in distress ink and used it to frame my photo.

I have also used the Fishing boy chipboard, the base has also been texture pasted and inked in the same colour as the circle frame, the little boy has been ink black and then a metallic silver used distress stain used with a paint brush to add slight highlights to him along with his fishing rod that has been done in silver. each of the cats were done in picket fence distress stain then using a paint brush i have added black and brown distress stain to the edges. the little bucket was done in silver and lines drawn in black and a little wire handle added.

I added more wire to the little boys fishing rod to look like a fishing line. Using a climbing vine i cut it into 3 pieces and rearranged 2 of them to look like a tree, it has been inked in white distress stain and the leaves done in green distress in then everything has had black & brown added to the edges.

I used a chipboard chicken wire and texture paste to create raised areas on the background. And stitching around the outside edge of the background paper.

Lots of Prima Flowers to finish it off.

This week I was sent a parcel full of Stackums card making sheets, now I'm not really a card maker but these take the hard work out of creating beautiful card.

Simple cut each lot of pictures out and layer them with foam tape 

Vintage car Stackums

I started by layering each of the pieces then I white washed the entire stackum to give it more of a vintage feel. and inked the edge.

A Memory Maze cog was cut in half and inked then also white washed

The other half of the cog

Pink Rose Stackum

I also white washed this stackum, I'm not a gold person so I wanted to tone down the gold elements

My wonderful 2yr old thought it would be a good idea to grab a piece of chipboard of my desk and start eating it, so to salvage this piece I cut it up into 3 smaller pieces, each piece has been white washed and lightly inked in pink
