April 2011: Scraplicious projects

It's the start of the June Holstein, whew, finally have time to breathe.. And post up the long overdue posts for my Scraplicious projects!

For April, I did 2 cards, 1 tag & 2 layouts..

The tag, using 7gypsies Life is Good tag and random leftovers from Crate Paper, Basic Grey, Pink Paislee and Hamblys'.

Layout 1 for April, aka texture-to-the-max layout!
I used Tim Holtz flourish mask with distress ink to create the background design on kraft cardstock. To create the title, I used Heidi Swapp letters as a mask on Hambly's peacock feathers transparencies, and used black acrylic & distress paint as well as micro-beads on top of the mask to create the texture. This was layered on top of another transparency and alcohol ink was applied in between the 2 transparencies to create the swirly silver & blue look. Some flowers were handmade using torn strips of 7gypsies paper as well as paper tape; the rest from Prima & Maya Road.

April layout 2, aka death by flowers layout!!

The "wreath" of flowers was cut from a single piece of Prima paper and backed with 3 different layers of lace (green, gray & blue). The interior of the wreath used 7gypsies Camden paper, with Pink Paislee stamps used to add texture. The hidden photo is behind the Life is Good panel, which was also stamped and distressed. Martha Stewart doily lace punch was used on the photo mat.
And then the death by flowers.. The rest of the layout is covered in them!!
