Couture Creations DT Reveal | Nouveau Cut, Foil & Emboss Scrapbook Layout

Hi all, and welcome to my post today that includes a scrapbook layout I have created with cardstock and embellishments – and NO PATTERNED PAPER.  As an added bonus I have included a sketch with this post for all of my sketch fans out there – and yes I am listening to your requests for me to do more sketches.

I have used Nouveau Cut, Foil and Emboss Dies to create the feather, swirl and birdcage embellishments for my layout.  The pink cardstock layer has been embossed to add an extra dimension to the layers – whilst the photo mats and swirls are actually a Kraft Cardbase, because that was the colour I wanted and the Cardbase was close to hand.

I opened out the flowers and then used Pigment Powders, water and Gloss Texture Paste the colour them – before adding Aztec Gold Glitzin’ Glamour to the centres.  This technique requires quite a bit of drying time as the flowers get really wet – and they do fall apart if you play with them too much whilst they are wet. 

The best way to stick layered embellishments like this is to use 3D Glue Spots as they allow you to create dimension and stick bulky items with ease.  I like to add them to the back of the embellishments before playing with the placement so that I can stick it all together as soon as I am happy – without having to muck around adding adhesives.

I foiled the Bees and the title with Pale Gold Foil, which I love so much that I have now purchased three rolls – it just goes with any theme and all of my favourite ranges this year.

Last but not least I have my sketch for you and I would love to see your take on it, and welcome to share a picture or link in the comments.

Couture Creations | Seaside & Me Scrapbook Layout featuring Hot Foiling

Hi everyone and welcome to my post today which is a layout I have created for you along with a process video that will give you an insight into how I create my layouts.  This layout is very clean and simple, allowing the photograph to be the star of the show.  This particular photograph is of me when I was a teenager fishing with some friends on the Boyne River.  

I started my layout by cutting paper for the layers and working out which pieces from the Ephemera set I wanted to use.  I have cut the borders from the shell and coral Ephemera pieces prior to inking them.  My process video actually starts after this when I painted White Acrylic Gesso onto the background paper, mostly to save you watching me for a whole day.

I have used scissors to distress the paper edges before inking them with a sponge dauber and brown ink.  Fussy-cutting titles I have Hot Foiled is one of my favourite layout embellishments at the moment, especially when they are inked and raised on foam mounting tape.

I have used two different types of Glue Dots to attach the flower and charm, making them into easy to apply stickers.  The Seaside & Me Ephemera set is actually printed on similar paper to the patterned papers in the collection, so they blend beautifully with the patterned papers – and can be inked cut and foiled as well.

As mentioned I also created a process video whilst I put my layout together, in which you will occasionally see a little hand with a pink sleeve (Amelia-Ann) off to the right helping Mummy to create…..
