Days gone bye

Today again I am to be a guest designer on Couture Creations Blog,
how quick has this year gone for us I should be sharing a Christmas in July card instead I thought I would share some Vintage classics today.
This is a photo of my Grandma at Port Noarlunga beach about 1929 which is not far from whereabouts we live ironically back then would of been quite a trip up the hill. 
I wanted to show how the Sea Breeze can be Versatile with your vintage photos or even Male cards.



My Grandma is centre back of this image, what I think is funny about this photo that most of the ladies are in their bathers and the men have suits on
Its a great photo everything about it. 


Because I only had one photo I have created the matching page with the image from the Ephemera Set not my Grandma although she was just as lovely.




Just a few cards I have created for classes in June using Acetate again, and The Sea Breeze papers and Dies.









I think you will agree the Sea Breeze can suit either Male or Female layouts or cards my next task will to create a male card to share with you 
thanks for visiting

Bridesmaids


Today I am excited to be a guest designer on the Couture Creations blog.
Before showing you my pages I have to apologise and make some excuses about my tardiness towards my blog. 
Although it may look like I am not creating rest assured I am, unfortunately they just have to stay hidden for awhile, which I find extremely frustrating, because I just want to share.
So now I have teased you just a little, I will share with you the ones I can.
I am still working on my daughter's friends Wedding using pocket pages as well as a layout.
I have not done any step by steps but have provided a lot of photos to inspire you.








In this layout I have used Imaginarium chipboard painted dark blue and two of my Sea Breeze dies
Cardinal Frame and Sandy Border  along with the Sea Breeze papers

Now we venture into the pocket pages,
 which I find hard to photograph but I believe you will get a reasonable idea of the way it is sitting. In the top part of the sleeve I again have used Couture Creations Acetate 12 x 12 cut into 12 x 6 inches.






 On my  3 brass pieces they have been painted with a Metallique Acrylique paint (Aqua), once it was dry I then painted over it with the navy paint and wiped off excess with baby wipes to highlight the underneath paint.




And some more pockets





hope you liked my pages I still have some more lovely photos of the Wedding ones with the beautiful bride to work on, so stay tuned.
All the papers that I have used are from my Sea Breeze collection from Couture Creations as well, as the Acetate
 Chipboard and brass from Imaginarium.
Thanks for dropping by

A beautiful day on the beach


Hello today I am using the Sea Breeze Collection which I am very excited about. 
This is a double layout made on Acetate which happens to be one of my favourite mediums to use I have taken as many photos of the steps by step as I created both sides as I could



the pieces I have used


firstly I used gesso and painted the 12x12 acetate, with a little bit of texture paste on a stencil



start to play with placement remembering what you place on one side maybe visible on the other side

   


final result 


the other side



the beads are a delicate touch they were adhered with a tacky craft glue as not all glues work well with acetate






hope you enjoyed one of my first layouts using my daughters bridesmaid's photos my plan is to create the next layout to sit behind this acetate one so placement of embellishments and papers etc. will be worked in around this one giving it a double layout with a difference
