'So many reasons to Smile' by Elisa Ablett for D-lish Scraps

Hi everyone, 


Elisa here from the design team of D-lish Scraps with my latest layout - a colourful boy mixed media layout.

I started out with adding some background colour to my page using Lindy's Stamp Gang magicals in two of my favourite colours Teal and Green. Then I added the most gorgeous of teal glitter tape and washi tape to the top edge of my page and along the bottom of my page as well.

Add some teal punchinella and frame, shaker star and wood veneer from a past 'Just Add Paper Kit' and layer under and around your photo along with a gorgeously dotty 'Journal It - Sassy Spot'.

Make sure you stop by the shop to check out the specials in the Past Kits Bits 50 %-OFF section, a few great bargains.



To balance your page design out - add some colour and washi tape and few of your desired elements to the bottom right of your page.


Here are some close ups of the finer details! I must admit I am in love with that teal glitter tape.



One of my favourite D-lish Scraps products is the Teal - Journal-Its---Ombre-Wordfetti perfect for adding a subtle and colour co-ordinating title to your page! and yes I think you can tell my favourite colour is Teal!



TIP - Staple your punchinella to your page, not only keeps the punchinella secure but adds a little bit more grunge to the page!

'Fly with Me' By Elisa Ablett - Mixed Media Tag for Rubber Dance Stamps May Colour Challenge

Hi all,

Something completely different today!

I was so excited when I received my first Rubber Dance Stamps - Butterfly Girl 2 stamp from Ink Art Designs in Australia so I popped over to the blog for inspiration when I saw the May Colour Challenge and thought I would give it a go  :-) 

Here is the very colourful mixed media tag that I created for the May Colour Challenge based on the below mood board.






Here are some close ups of the finer details and my gorgeous Butterfly Girl 2 stamp! 

I stamped it twice and coloured each layer to create a multdimensional effect and the vision of her flying.


The gorgeous shimmer you see is due to Daler -Rowney Acrylic Inks - Metallic in Rose Petal.




Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope that you go visit the Rubber Dance or Ink Art shop via the links I provided above and grab some of these unique and great quality stamps :-)


Thanks xx

Elisa

'BeYOUtiful' by Elisa Ablett for Dlish Scraps

Hi everyone,


Elisa here from the Design Team for Dlish Scraps with another mixed media inspired layout created with the amazing products from the D-lish Scraps store.

A vibrant mixed media layout using bits and pieces from a past 'Just Add Paper Kit' including a lime green Paper-Doily, green and purple Bitty Blooms, gorgeous Lily and awesome Wood Veneers.

Don't forget that you can head to the Past Kits & Bits section for extra goodies for your layouts.

I wanted to create a different approach to the 'Wreath' design that you have been seeing on some of the scrapbooking layouts recently.





Let's have a look at the finer details !




In the above photo you can see that I utilised the Hibiscus Duo Stencil in a slightly different way by tracing the inside of the stencil with a permanent black marker over the top of the water colour background. I used gorgeous Daler-Rowney Acrylic Inks to create the shimmery coloured background.


A little bit of green gauze, Sequinsvellum bag and journal its and minifetti and flowers to layer under and around your photo.







Another quick look at the main embellishment cluster and we have finished!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, make sure you leave some love and stay tuned for my next post later in the month 😀
