Decemeber reveal with Alicia- Part 2

Today I have my second project to share with you for the month. I have used a few different chipboard pieces this time, and tried a new technique. 

She is beautiful.

I cut an ornate oval frame into two sections to arrange around the photo. I covered all my pieces in Distress paint to start. The frame and title were then coated in silver embossing powder. 

For the butterflies, I applied a coating of white mica fragments, and then coated the whole thing in dimensional magic to seal it all in. 

I applied rubons straight over the top of the embossed surface. They went on surprisingly well.

December reveal with Alicia

Today I have something a little different to share with you. I have been building a fairy garden in our front yard with my daughter. We have trees and stumps and lots of spaces for fairy doors. 

If you are part of our Memory Maze Facebook group, you may have seen some discussion around some new items Sally has been making that would be great for fairy gardens, and this particular door came up, so I thought I would try my hand at turning this one into a new addition to our garden. 

Fairy Garden Door

This door comes in two pieces and is made from chipboard, so to make it weather proof for the garden (well hopefully), I began by applying a thick coat of Mod Podge to seal it. Next I ran the base piece through my embossing machine to give it a nice texture. I then painted it in brown. I applied a layer of metallic embossing powder and heat set. 

For the top layer, I painted in black, then applied Metallic dimensional paint over the top. I glued the two pieces together, then attached some decorative hinges. I added some gold paint dots down the side to simulate rivets. 

It wouldn't be a fairy door without pretty flowers, so I added some of my smallest flowers down the side. Next I coated the whole thing, front and back, flowers included with lots of Mod Podge to seal once again over the top. 

Some of the flowers did discolour a little more than I had hoped with the Mod Podge, so as a final touch, I coated them all in some translucent glitter. 

I hope the fairies like it.

Alicia's November reveal

Thanks for visiting our blog once again. Today I have three new projects to share with you, using lots of Memory Maze chipboard. 

 Precious Baby Girl 

 First up in a layout of my little girl on our recent trip away. I have used a pretty floral heart doily piece to accentuate the photo in my layout. To dress the chipboard I first sprayed green paint mist, then I added a coat of clear embossing enamel for a shiny finish. The shimmer of the paint spray shows nicely through the enamel.

Mummy and Me

Next up is a pic of my little boy and myself mucking around taking some selfies. I used paint spray to colour the chipboard pieces, then added some dimensional paint dots along selected letters and around the curls of the wrought iron piece which I separated into two sections.

Finally I have a Christmas card to share. It's not long to go now. I have used a vintage frame painted in green first, and then covered in white sparkly embossing powder to give it a weathered but festive look.

Tracey Campbell's November Reveal

Greetings all. This month I have been extra busy around the house, work and with the family so I haven't actually done much scrapping....and I am having serious withdrawals from not getting creative. I did make some time to sit and scrap with some of the deliciously yummy Memory Maze chipboard designs and here is what I came up with.

Always Sisters

For this layout I wanted to give the chipboard pieces a very soft look to go along with the photos so I simply applied some white gesso and then misted it with a clear glimmer mist.

 Memory Maze Products Used:
Bird On Wire

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.

Memory Maze supplies used:
Vintage street lamp
Mixed letters
Cherry blossoms
Paper roses

For my Daughter
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.
