Hi Clique friends. Hope you are all well I’m back to share with you guys another post. Today I chose to share with you this layout that I’ve made using Around the world collection from Memory place
I’ve decided to combine this collection with 49 and Market die cuts and rub-on transfers. As that said, I can confirm that I made a complete project without using any stamp, stencil, or other technique to add texture. Ha-ha.. who knew?
Despite this 49and market supplies are beach themed they went awesome with the papers and were so easy to put all things together.
Made this layout super inspired by my talent Clique Kits design team friends. After seeing their awesome layouts and see how they mix two or more papers to create backgrounds I had to give it a go and make one of my one.
I must say this way was so much easier to create this layout that i didn´t overthink as I usually do when create scrapbook pages.
Hope you feel inspired and have fun making yours. List of supplies
Good morning everyone! I know its after Christmas, but I'm still working on Christmas layouts lol. Are any of you doing the same? Well this morning I'm sharing a layout of my youngest son and his hair cut for Christmas.
This boy usually like to keep his hair unruly and under a beanie, but for some reason he decided that he wanted to get his haircut before Christmas. And hey, if that's what he wanted, why not? I started my layout with the Holiday magic seasonal kit, with all that beautiful Pinkfresh Studio papers and embellishments. I took the four smaller pictures of my son and mounted them on a piece of white cardstock, with a bit extra at the bottom. I popped that up on some 3D adhesive and stated layering a few of the papers behind that.
I pulled a few of the other papers and a few dies I had and ran them through my big shot so that I had some sprigs to tuck in here and there. I went ahead with tucking those in on the left and right of the photo mount, but at this point it was just looking to plain with just the white background. I pulled out some other papers and tried them, but I wasn't liking it so I went back to the white background and decided to pull out my stencils and go through them.
I found an old crafters workshop stencil with different size dots in a circle and decided to use it. I put it in the middle of my layout when I had had the photos sitting and grabbed my distress oxide in candied apple and went to buffin it thought the stencil. Once I had decided I liked how far it went out I stopped and placed my photos and my layers back on top and stuck it down.
I didn't really want to add much more to it, so I cut out one of the tags, added a puffy sticker and a few twigs and called it good. I did try a few other things, but none o them were right. So I left it a bit planer, but I like that the pictures are front and center in this layout. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my layout! And make sure to head over to the Clique kits shop and look at all the pretties there are in the shop to play with!
Happy New Year friends! Dana here today sharing a quick decor project that I'm hoping will help keep me on track. I have to admit that I lost track of what day it was sometime back in early December. Now that I'm back to my regular routine, I need to know what that date is on the regular. I picked up a plain black and white flip calendar and personalized it with paint and a fun mix of ephemera and embellishments from past kits.
I colored over the black numbers with a gold paint pen. I swapped out the monthly flip cards with some that I cut by hand from the Cocoloko Minimal Life in a Pocket Pad. I'm just loving the muted tones and mod prints on these patterned papers.
The Jen Hadfield Peaceful Heart Ephemera and Kimidori Colors Mauve Alpha Stickers were the perfect size to embellish the monthly cards. I used Freckled Fawn and Pinkfresh enamel dots to add small pops of color and dimension to the otherwise flat cards.
I like to ease into the new year with baby steps and an open mind. I wait to set goals until the second quarter. However you choose to start the year, I hope it is filled with happiness and creativity!
Hey y'all! I hope you all are settling in to the new year well and getting into you artsy groove. This week I'm sharing some mixed media love in my Bad Girls Couture art journal.
For this page I used both the Limited Edition Artist Series Gustav Klimt kit as well as the Explore & Learn Kuretake Historic Art Watercolor painting kit by Klimt. These two kits are a great compliment to each other and are packed with things to get your creative juices flowing! I used one of the 12 x 12 double sided patterned cardstock by Stamperia that was included in the kit and I cut it down to fit in my journal. Since the cardstock is double sided I didn't adhere it to the existing journal pages so the other side of the beautiful paper can be seen. Next I used a palette knife to apply some modeling paste through the stencil by Stamperia (also included in the kit). Once dried I applied some of the watercolors from the Historic Art Watercolor Kit by Klimt.
After all the watercolors had dried well I applied some patches of the copper stencil butter by The Crafters Workshop (included in the limited edition art kit).
I continued to add layers upon layers, using mostly items included in those two kits. One addition that wasn't in the kit but a great addition from my stash was some gold leaf that I applied in a spiral pattern with just a bit of white glue. You could use gold metallic paint of glitter to mimic a similar look if you don't have gold leaf.
Finally I added some of the die cuts from the kit to add more layers and interest. I sanded the edges of the chipboard ones, and even did a light sanding on the entire surface of each of those to take some of the gloss off then I inked the edges with a black ink pad. For the clear heavy acetate shapes I used a gold paint pen and outlined the edges.
I glued the die cuts down and used pop dots in some areas to add variation to the hights and textures.
Oh my goodness that texture. *SWOON*
I've only just gotten into these delish kits and I can't wait to make more art with them!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful today!
Hello Clique friends How are you doing today? I'm so happy to share with you a new layout that I made documenting our last trip with our family. We went to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. It was so fun and we love to spend the weekend together discovering the city and the beautiful cathedral.
I used the amazing Sampler Kit You are my Sunshine from Bella Blvd that is still available in the store. You can find stickers, a lot of die cuts, beautiful puffy stickers, sticker alphabet and gorgeous and colorful papers. Everything in one kit!!
To start putting together this layout, I chose a cleaner paper and cut circles of different sizes on it. At the bottom of the circles, I chose some patterned papers to line them.
Two of the circles I lined with white paper and I decided to do something different on them. On the larger one, I pasted puffy stickers inspired by the paper stamped with small images.
In the smaller circle lined with white paper, I made a shaker with colored sequins matching with the collection.
After that, I started decorating the circles with phrases and die cuts from the collection.
A simply and colorful layout with this amazing Bella Blvd collection. This kit and many more you can find in the Clique store. And be sure to follow our Facebook group for more inspiration and chances to win prizes by sharing your projects with us. See you later.
Hello Clique International friends, here I am with my first project for 2022! I hope you had a merry Christmas and a good start on this new year. For my new project I decided to make a layout. I must admit have a thing for patterned papers with some sort of wreath on them, or something you can modify to make one, so, as soon as I saw the beautiful light blue paper with flowers in this kit I immediately thought to make a wreath design layout with it!
I cut the inside of the circle and I replaced it with the flowery gray paper.
I glued branches, flowers and leaves die cuts all around the circle, to create a flowery wreath.
I tucked the picture on one side and added embellishments and die cuts, creating a focal point.
On a corner I created a little cluster of embellishments.
Mixed media doesn't have to be vintage or shabby chic, it can be modern and fun! I cut a large tag from white cardstock. I firstly dusted off my coloured ink stamps and blending brushes. I used pink and turquoise inks blending from the top to the bottom, going lighter to darker.
I used a dot stencil to create a textured background. I used Liquitex texture pasts which is a paste that allows you to add colour to it (therefore it is economical price wise as you are not buying individual coloured pots off texture paste), I created a pink and turquoise, the paints I used are available in the Clique shop, they are from the Art Journalling Kit cliquekits.com/explore-learn-kit-art-journaling-starter-dina-wakley/
Once my stencilled texture paste was dry I created a collage to add layers to my background. I roughly tore some paper circles, added strips of printed tissue paper finished off with some machine stitching. I use mod podge to collage with and seal.
I chose my image and fussy cut her out and added to my tag with mod podge. I tore random paper pieces to make her dress and layered up. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut two sets of wings (so I could layer them) and blended pink and turquoise ink to them.
I finished my tag of by adding a phrase sentiment from the collage words in the kit and splashed with some white gloss spray.
This tag will end up in an art journal page, I love the quote Be enough! Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to sharing more with you in 2022!
In the Leaves Turning Add-on kit, there is this paper with the little cups from the Bungalow Lane collection by Paige Evans and I love it!!! It immediately made me think of Alice In Wonderland so I chose a picture of my kids at Disneyland Paris just to use this paper!!! Tell me, do things like this happen to you too ?
I chose this black polka dot paper from Jen Hadfield as my background. I matted my photo with several pieces of printed paper, adding pieces of cardstock to add volume.
I fussy cut the cups and drew a cutter line through each one to slide another one in and make it look like they are stacked.
I added tags from Jen Hadfield's paper and the "This is our happy place" die cut from the Stitched Together kit. I love this kit, the colors are gorgeous and the epoxy die-cuts add texture to the page. I used one of them in combination with the alphabet from the kit to create my title.
I imagined this kit more for fall and I loved using it in a different way. Try it, you'll see how much fun it is!!! Come show us your creations with our beautiful kits on The Clique Facebook group, we totally love it!
So good to see you on our blog in 2022! I hope you had a wonderful new years eve and wish for all of you that you have an amazing and healthy 2022.
Today I would like to share this layout I made with the beautiful Fairytale kit. The papers and embellishments are so so so pretty!
There is this beautiful triangle paper which I cut into hexagons. Those I used as a template to cut 3 hexagons from different greenish/blue papers from the kit. Then I cut apart the triangles and distressed the edges, folded the edges a bit and glued them onto the basic hexagons.
I made these little pinwheels to link to the photo, a pinwheel is so easy to make! Simply take a square piece of paper, cut diagonally from the corners to the middle of the paper (leave a bit of space of course) and fold one side of the corners to the middle. I stamped some small leaves and embossed them gold. The text around the hexagons was also embossed with gold.
I trimmed down the white edges of the die cuts and finished it off with some gold splatters. I love how it turned out!
Hi Clique friends. I’m here to share with you my first 2022 art journal page. Every year I make one page to set the mood for the new year that now begins. For this year I hope to be more creative and make art happen even more.
2021 was a good artistic year but somewhere in the middle I did felt that my creativity was slowing down (even stopped for a moment ha ha ha) and now I want it back in the full speed again. Are you read me 2022? I really hope so. Don´t have any particular plan for this new year just go with the flow and let life take is course and achieve some goals of my bucket list during the new year.
This art journal page is to remember that creativity can be everywhere, I just need to pay attention and practice. Every time I spend some days without creating I feel less creative so even when I feel that way I do try to create something small and in the end I gain two more ideas LOL.
Page background was made with Metallic Accents by Prima and then added some texture with stamps, stencils, and texture past. The focal point are the words, ones are pieces of a washi tape and the central ones are stickers. You can see all the supplies used in the end of this post and will link it to the Clique kits web site.
To make the stickers pop-up a little more I went around the letters with a black pen and did it the same way around the flower die cut.
In the end, hand stitched the small lace and made a few more stiches in the page just to combine all the elements together. Hope you feel inspired and have fun making yours.
