Friends are like Stars | Krisy Podolak

Hi Lovelies, It's Krisy and I am here with my first share this month.  Today is it a layout of me and the "Boss Lady" here at Flutterby Designs.  I met Anita in real life earlier this year at the Brisbane Scrapbooking Expo.  We were lucky enough to do Fiona Paltridge's class and had a great time. (That's Fiona in the background - who knows what she is doing?!?) This is one of the many photos we took.

I wanted to use this Friends quote from the Everyday Etc Cards " Partners in Crime" Range, so I used it as my base for inspiration.  I also wanted to use this pink frame so that was my colour scheme decided. Plus it just happened to work with the Flair Button I wanted to use.  Fancy that a range matching and working together.  I used mango orange and pink Gelatos to "smooch" the base of my background.

Then once it was dry, I used my Flutterby Stargazed stencil to trace on some stars.  I then stamped onto the background with a VivaLasVegastamp and some black Stayzon Ink. Oh and at this point I also added a bit of black ink splatter.  I then added all my layers.  I started with my stencil and added things around that.  Behind the photo I added some pink and white paper straws for something a little different and because I wanted to added a softer pink to tie in the pink on the flair button.

To make the flair button a bit more of a feature I set it on top of this yellow and hessian Charms Creations Heart.  I think it finishes the layout nicely.

Just Me by Kylie Cornish

I find sometimes being a scrapbooker, I forget to scrap about myself.
I know that I am not the only one.
We are always the one behind the camera.
But not today, today I was looking fine. 
A trip to the hairdresser had revived this tired chick!
It was selfie time!

Be Bold | Sue Plumb

Hi Flutterby peeps!
Sue Plumb here with you to share my latest creation for Flutterby Designs. Today I have a 12x12" mixed media layout that features a photo of my cheeky boys showing me their "tattoos" that they had drawn on each other with textas.

I was inspired to create a messy mixed media background for this layout to fit with the "art" theme of my photo. I also wanted to draw in the paint splotch design from the Everyday Etc card (from the No Excuses range) that I chosen to use as the feature behind my photo.

To create my background, I used several different colours of Flutter Colour paint. I wanted the paint to splatter easily, so I watered it down slightly to make it thinner. Then I set about applying each colour by splattering and flicking it onto my page using a paint brush. In order to make sure I didn't make "mud", I dried each colour thoroughly before applying the next one. After it was dry I also added some stamping with black ink to give the background more depth and character.

As I already mentioned, I used an Everyday Etc card from the No Excuses range behind my photo. I also used another card from the same range to fussy cut my Be Bold title from. As there was no purple on my background, I wanted to add some purple elements to help tie in with colours in the title. So I used one of the coordinating No Excuses Filler Cards and cut it up to add the purple I needed.

Next, I added a flair button (from set #229), which I nested on some messy black cotton thread; and one of the Blackboard Sticky Quotes below my photo. I also added a couple of Snippet Strips around my page.

I then added a few Confetti Circles wood veneer pieces, which I coloured black with my trusty Posca pen and some neon enamel dots.

A few splatters of purple mist and some quick journaling and I was finished.

Thanks for stopping by so I could share this page with you. I will be back in a couple of weeks with another project to share. Until then, happy scrapping! X

Scrap Moles | Krisy Podolak

Right, before you think I'm being nasty and using the word "Mole" in my title and especially when talking about people, I am not!  "Scrap moles" is an affectionate term amongst us Australian Scrappers.  When we believe that we have found our "tribe" we refer to them as our moles.  Well, maybe not everyone does but my "tribe" does.  To be included in this term is endearing, it is not used in a derogatory way.  This is some of my "tribe".  It took a long while to find them but I am so glad I did.

This layout is a mixed media one that drew inspiration from one of the "Partners in Crime" Everyday Etc Cards.  You will see it poking out from behind the photo. I used the inspiration to make a background using inks, paints and stencils.  This layout is really all about the background  There is not much over the top of it really.

I started of with Colour Blast Colour Sprays in Bubblegum and Road Base and then over the top I added some Yellow Flutter Colour paint through a Tim Holtz Harlequin stencil.  Once it was dry I added some texture stamping using black Stayzon Ink.  Then I used the same stencil to trace some shapes over the colour of the background.

Once I was happy with my base, I used the Turquoise Blue Flutter Paint to run some swirls around the page by squeezing the paint directly from the bottle.  I also painted a wood veneer I had made by the talented Corbett Creations to help me capture my tribes words.  I then used another Everyday Etc card from the "Partners in Crime" range and used it as my journaling on the page.

For some final details I added some Snippet words, enamel dots and a Charms Creations blue chevron that matches the turquoise Flutter Colour paint perfectly.  And yes there is a bit of blue paint on the photo but I have said it before it is all part of the creative process and it is going in my albums so who cares.  I can always print another photo later if I want to.

Awesome Chic by Lauren Hender

Hello Everyone!

Late night blogging here tonight. I have had such a big week and am looking forward to setting myself up for a creative weekend.

Tonight I am sharing a mixed media layout using Flutterby Designs
Cut Files
Enamel dots and a

I began by building my background. I used some white texture paste, stencil and water colour paints.

I then added the circle cut files, tags and photo. I added an additional Flutterby cut file in top of the photo to highlight the photo feature and Neet of course.

Next I added the cut file heading, some thickers, tags to journal on, some enamel dots and a flair.

I love this layout not only because of the fabulous products I've used but the featured memory I have with Anita and special friend.

Take Care!
