Flying High

I couldn't resist getting Basic Grey's new What's Up collection - I love the hot air balloons and the lovely colours. And don't you just love how the layered hot air balloon stickers are not just layered but can actually be folded upwards for a really wonderful 3D effect?

For this layout, I mixed the papers and layered stickers with Hambly's new Rain Clouds transparency, and played with some of my Martha Stewart edge punches.

And I applied some stickles to the hand-cut balloons for some added glitter.

Here are more views of the layout.

Brilliant Sunset

I just wanted to share with you this painting which I completed last weekend, an acrylic piece on canvas. It's been quite awhile since I last painted anything and I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. :)

Count Your Blessings

I used BoBunny's beautiful Country Garden collection for this layout, again with some Dusty Attic goodness.

I applied Stampendous' Frantage Embossing Enamel onto the chipboard pieces, heated them, and then applied a thin layer of Tim Holtz's Distress Embossing Powder over various parts of the chipboard pieces and re-heated them again. I love the resulting texture on the chipboards.

The layout is further embellished with Prima flowers, Zva crystals, lace from Melissa Frances, some paper doilies, and a pretty metal trinket from BoBunny of course.

Here are more views of the layout.
