Fall Colours!

Fall has always been my favourite season, the colours of the changing leaves the sun and crisp air is amazing!

Earlier this month my husband and I celebrated 17 years together, and managed to spend some time enjoying the changing season before the rain started here.

When Lori brought these Prima Leaves into the store I was instantly inspired..

I actually drove out to the store to get some before they sold out!  While I was there Lori showed me some of the stores newest laser cut chipboard, how perfect are these?!

With new leaves in my hand and a few other goodies I picked up and my recent anniversary I dug out a wedding photo and got to work!

I had picked up this tin heart a while ago and decided it was just right for this project!

I started the canvas by adding a thick layer of crackle paste.  Once it was dry I stamped it using Archival Ink in Black, then sprayed with a couple different colours.

I used a few different sizes of the laser cut chipboard leaves, coating them with Distress Embossing Powder in Walnut Stain & Antique Linen.

The flowers all got colour using different sprays, they started white…love white flowers and customizing them for my project!

You can’t tell but I also gave them some shimmer using Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist in Antique Gold & Copper.

I had to throw just a little steampunk in with all the flowers!  That windup toy key just works if you ask me!

The title ‘Our Wedding Day’ is also from the stores laser cut chipboard, the font & size was absolutely perfect!!!

Hopefully we will see a few more sunny days so we can all head out and enjoy the beautiful fall season!

Boys Rule…Girls Too!

Happy August Long Weekend!  I hope everyone is taking some time to enjoy the extra day off and some sunny weather this weekend!

A couple weekends ago I headed to Winkler for a day crop, it was a very last minute decision and I’m so glad I went.  Got to spend the day visiting with friends and playing with new scrappy supplies!  What could possibly be better?!

While I was there I managed to pick up paper and embellishments for a new line called Boys Rule from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.  We all know that boy themed lines are rare and ones suit teenage boys is even more rare.  Well this line is perfect and VERY popular!!  Lori does have more on order but it keeps selling out so fingers crossed she can get more soon!

I have two different projects to share with you today, a scrapbook page, something I haven’t made for a long time, and a 5×7 canvas.

Now that my boys are teens it’s not often they allow me to snap their picture, but with both them celebrating school graduations I finally got them in front of the camera!

Sean finished grade 8 this year and moves onto high school next month.  This line was an absolutely perfect match for this picture of him all ready for his graduation celebration!

I had so much fun digging through all the embellishments and die cuts that came with this line, I had to stop myself from trying to use them all on this one page!  Oh and the ‘Mr. Fantastic’ made me giggle, my Dad used to call my oldest son Mr. Perfect, so I thought why not call my youngest son Mr. Fantastic!!!

The scribble circle piece at the top right of the photo is one of the fabulous Laser Cut Chipboard pieces from the store!

This line can easily be used for girls too, the papers are fairly neutral in pattern which makes them so versatile!

This little canvas came together pretty quick!  I covered the canvas with one of the papers from the Boys Rule line and added some of the tags as well.

That cute camera peeking out is another piece that came in one of the die cut packages for this line.  And of course the ‘Love You Forever’ is one of Lori’s Laser Cut Chipboard pieces covered with white embossing powder!

I have to say it was fun playing with this line, I’ll be pulling it out again in the near future!  I do have some amazing photos of my oldest from his grad that are just waiting their turn!

Enjoy your weekend and try to get some creative time in!
