Austyn Layout Using Harmony by Authentique


I hope everyone is ready for another fun week.  I got to spend some time in my creative world this past weekend, which makes me super HAPPY!  Today I'm sharing a mixed media layout I created of my Niece, Austyn.  

Harmony by Authentique Layout designed by Tonya A. Gibbs

 I fell in love with the Harmony Collection from Authentique the minute I saw it! Expect lots of projects with this line.  The paper has a nice weight and texture, and the patterns are soft and pretty!  Pairing them with Petaloo's Burlap Blossoms and Butterflies just seemed natural! 




I really wanted a WOW factor for this layout. Something dramatic!  I used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®  Gelatos® to color the layout's accent pieces, and give life to my die-cuts, flowers and butterflies.   



Harmony by Authentique Layout designed by Tonya A. Gibbs

Look at these GORGEOUS flowers I drew with the Peach, Tangerine, Pistachio, and White Gelatos® They really give an element of elegance to this layout, and make my niece appear as though she is sitting in a garden. 



I pulled out the Hoppy Flowers & Flower Branch Dies from Die-Namites. They offer the most delicate filler and really help to give this layout depth.   I colored the Flowering Branch die with the Pistachio Gelatos® and look at how it went from a flowering branch to an Ivy branch! 


I removed "Hoppy" the Cricket from the Hoppy Flowers die and it transformed the die into the perfect corner spray! Just look at how cute "Hoppy" the Cricket is perched in that floral spray in the photo below!  



Want to learn how to create this layout?   Here is a process video showing you how it was made!




I hope you are enjoying your July kit as much as I am.  Thank you so much to Scrapbooking With M.E. Boutique for providing kits, and sponsoring these Ustreams.

Ustream - June 28 - Follow up post

WOW - this has been a crazy busy week. Today I want to follow up the Special Broadcast last Saturday. It was a lot of fun spending the morning / afternoon with you guys.



I used the Teresa Collins Designs Urban Market kit that we featured in June to create a self portrait layout!   Along with a few other items from Stampendous, Spellbinders, The Crafter's Workshop, Heidi Swapp, Cosmo Cricket, and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®



Our base was the glitter paper in the collection, and I shared that if you pre-treat the paper with Gel Medium the glitter will not come off.  I used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gel medium. Someone asked in the show if it will dull the Glitter effect -  The Answer is NO this is still super shiny. 


Look at all of this yummy texture created with the Whipped Spackle and Colorshines! 


Chipboard shapes are super popular right now, and I showed you how to use your chipboard  and Spellbinder's basic circle shapes to create these navy blue circles. 



If you missed the show never fear it was recorded! 



Thank you again to Scrapbooking With Me Boutique for sponsoring this event, and providing kits!   Don't forget that our next Ustream is scheduled for July 7th at 8:30 p.m. EST.

Remember that August Ustream kit has gone on sale. Head over to the boutique to get yours while supplies last.  We will be creating mixed media cards.

Thanks for stopping in today.
