I've been busy working away on projects for CHA, but I can't share those projects just yet. In the meantime, here are some of my older layouts that I don't think I've posted here before. These are a few of my layouts that have appeared in Creating Keepsakes in the recent months:
*Coffee filters -- I cut and punched flowers from coffee filters. I sprayed and painted them with Shimmerz paint and Spritz, then I layered the flowers on top of each other.
*Cheesecloth -- I cut out flower shapes and added them to my coffee filter flowers
*Plastic coffee can lid -- I punched flowers and cut out leaves from the plastic lids, then I colored the plastic with alcohol ink and Staz-On ink.
*Instant coffee -- I mixed a little instant coffee with gesso and painted around the edges of the photos. The plain white gesso was a little too stark for my Photoshopped photos so the coffee grounds helped tone down the color a bit.
*Twine from our kitchen junk drawer -- I hand-stitched the twine around the border of the layout, then I painted it with Shimmerz for a little sparkle.
*Cardboard coffee cup/jacket insulator from Peet's Coffee (the BEST coffee around, in my opinion) -- I punched a couple little butterflies out of the cardboard, then I added some Stickles and pearls.
But I was a good girl and only used scrapbook safe (I think) products on this one:
And here's a wedding layout I did a while back (it appeared in the June issue of CK):
Have a great weekend!
