Jewelry Chest of Drawers OTP- Flying Unicorn April Kit

This month's Flying Unicorn Kit contains a chest of drawers OTP.
I used the Princess collection from Prima to cover the chest.

To decorate the chest I glued a piece of chipboard to the back of the chest and then glued the fairies, flowers and resins.

I also decorated the top of the chest with more flowers and Prima embellishments.

I made this chest of drawers for my daughter. She loved it so much and loved putting all her jewelry in it. It looks so beautiful in her room and fits the decor beautifully!!!

Hope this project inspires you to create an OTP.

Selfie- Shimmerz April Project

Welcome to another colourful month with Shimmerz.
I just love the bright, colourful and shimmery look of the Shimmerz Products.

To start the background, I used some Dreamsicle Dazzlerz paint to mask the chevron pattern down the page. Once dry, I sprayed some Chikadee yellow over some of the background.

I used some Mandarin Mai Tai and Bamboo Leaf to make paint splatters in the background. I simply removed the nozzle from the top and just randomly splattered ink directly from the bottle. The more ink fell, the larger the splatters became.

The chipboard circles wer painted in both Peas Be Mine and Green with Envy after being primed with gesso.

Remember to join in the Shimmerz Facebook Challenge during April for your chance to win even more Shimmerz!!!

and.... if you want to order from the Shimmerz Store, you should mention my name. You will then get a free Shimmerz product.

Have a wonderful day!!

Your Path- Time Traveler Collection by Prima- Step by Step

Prima has a brand new collection called Time Traveler.
Its a beautiful vintage collection with earthy tones.

Here is a layout I made with a step by step tutorial on how I created it. 

This is one of my favourite photos of my son. He's walking down an old railroad track. I love the new Time Traveler collection as its perfect for pictures with a vintage twist. I hope my son always walks the path of happiness, love, peace and kindness

Step by Step

Step 1
Choose a background paper: I chose Time Traveler Forever Roses

Step 2&3 
Use some light molding paste over one of the new Prima stencil to create lines up and down the page. Let them dry.

Step 4
 Spray the stencilled area with two Vintage Metal Color Bloom sprays: Worn Leather and Gold Foil. Let them dray

Step 5
 Stamp with the Honey comb patterned stamp randomly around the sprayed area.

Step 6
 Add different fussy cut paper layers around the photo.

Step 7
 Add flowers and embellishments

you can use the Color Bloom sprays to colour your Prima resins and metals. In this layout I painted the resin clock and the Junkyard Findings street sign in Gold foil, using a thin brush.

Butterfly Kisses- 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk collection

Here is my second creation for 7 Dots Studio

Although I've used this photo numerous times on my layouts it is still one of my favourites. The look on my daughters innocent face while the butterfly landed on her head is absolutely priceless.

I used the Nature Walk collection because it has a butterfly theme. I use a butterfly die-cut with one of the papers from the collection to create a large butterfly behind the photo. 

The combination of black, brown and gold really stood out to me and I loved using it on this layout.

7 Dots Products:
Nature Walk- Songbird
Nature Walk- Gray Day
Nature Walk- Word Stickers 6x12
Nature Walk- Die-cut elements 6x12
Nature Walk- Flair buttons

Other Products
