Bright and Fun

Splashes of colour

Hi Everybody, I am starting the year off with a bright layout.
My beautiful niece loves colour so I thought it would suit her photo.

The background is done with high colour embossing powders from Ranger (Wendy Vecche).
I used the clear embossing dauber as the splatz medium and sprinkled on the embossing powders and heat set them. One colour at a time to keep them separate.

I have used a wonderful title from Memory maze 

and one of the smaller words packs for the word

Memory maze have frames galore but I used this one

All chipoboard was painted with Alchemy metallique Paints.

Thanks for looking

Our Story-by Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone!

Leanne here to share with you today, Well its a New Year with new projects to share using Memory Maze products.

Our Story

Today I'm sharing a layout using some of the new Memory Maze design products, I created a background using some Dylusion paints, along with some stamping and layering. I primed my chipboard with gesso, then watered down my dylusion paints to colour my chipboard pieces. My photo is of my family, we had a family photo shoot late last year in the Botanical Gardens.

Double heart frame with feathers, I painted main frame white then used watered down Dylusion paints on my feathers, I added detail to the feathers with a fine sharpie marker, then added some art ingredient beads for decoration.

Our Story Title I painted white then used the same technique for the feathers then added some gelato's to deepen the colours.

Aunt Canvas with Candy

Hi Everyone Candy here with my latest mixed media canvas.
This one is for an order for a friend
from her Granddaughter to her Aunt...
Just love this verse

I'm not just an
I'm a big cup of 
Covered in Awesome
with a splash of sassy
and a 
dash of crazy

I firstly applied white gesso to the canvas.
Then applied the modelling paste and the mask all over.
Let this dry
Apply your sprays I used coffee and turquoise around the canvas
I used a spray water bottle to dilute the colour
and don't forget to dry between colours or you will
make mud...
It took me a while until I was happy with the colours
just don't forget it will dry lighter.

I glued the plastic frame using a good strong glue
My canvas had a cut out piece where you place the photo
This is where I glued my frame.
If your frame is glossy give a rub down with sandpaper
to roughen so the gesso and sprays will take.

I covered my chipboard pieces with gesso
then using versamark then my embossing enamel
cover well.

Then place your flowers, chipbaord pieces, leaves etc where
you want them, then glue down.
I added some gold around my canvas just to give it a highlight.
I also went over my verse with a black permanent pen to make stand out.

Merry Christmas tags with Tania

Hello lovely crafters, and a big Merry Christmas to you all!!
I have a quick and easy project for you today. These cute, hanging hearts make great tree decorations or gift tags, you can personalize them to suit and add any embellishments to compliment.
I used this stencil from Memory Maze which is a favourite of mine!!!

Mini Stencils divided heart 100 x 100mm min buy 5 priced as ea

I started by sponging some Distress Stain in Gold and Silver, through the stencil onto white cardstock. 

Then I cut the hearts out using a die and my Die cutting machine.

To finish, I embossed a Merry Christmas sentiment in black, added some gold washi tape strips and a punched, gold star.

I have some gorgeous gold and silver twine in my stash, so used these together to make the hangers.
All done, so quick and easy. You could pump out a few of these in one sitting, they make great last minute tags!

Thanks for looking and enjoy your Christmas!!!

Layers of chipboard with Tracey Henly

I used this cool stencil for the background and sprayed some glimmer through it.

I absoluetly love 3D chipboard, the more layers I can stack the better I love it. So this birds and branches frame kit was my starting point for this layout.  I added the fancy flourishes to the top and bottom as well to build it up, but as I was gluing it on I curved the straight edge around to match the frame. Finished off with the cute little butterflies.

The title "B fearlessly Authentic" was all one piece but it didn't work well that way on this layout, so don't be scared to cut them up and make them fit peeps.

All chipboard has been painted with Prima alchelmy sparks paints.

Finished off with some prima and petaloo flowers.

Thanks for looking

{lovely ladies}

Hi everyone - Kylie here to inspire you with another layout here on the Memory Maze blog......

Swirl 2a Swirl flourish

To alter this gorgeous piece of chipboard I have used yellow Zinc embossing powder......

This layout is of my gorgeous mother and my daughter - I have created a background using texture paint and a cute branch stencil once dry I touched up with assorted metallic paint colours. I than drizzled with House paints orange and white..... over the background. Once dry I layered with old map paper and two different background papers which I have just torn and layered along with some small white dollies.

I have embellished with assorted wash tapes, gauze and puffy embellishments and of course my embossed chipboard flourish.

For the title I have used a Heidi Swapp die "Lovely" and gold chipboard tiles. To journal I have used manila tags. Last but not least I have used a white sign pen and doodled around the edges.

Hope you enjoyed todays upload.

{amaze yourself}

Hi everyone - thanks for stopping by the Memory Maze blog I hope you you are inspired by my upload today....

I love this Memory Maze title AMAZE YOURSELF

I altered the chipboard with Minc Reactive Paint

I painted the chipboard title with the Reactive paint and set aside to completely dry. Once dry cut a piece of the Minc foil I have selected teal - place the chipboard face down and place inside the plastic mind sleeve and using the high setting let run it through the minc machine. Once its through peel the foil away to reveal an awesome minced title......

I really love this layout ..... to create I have used a 12" Marshmallow piece of cardstock I altered with Dylusion sprays and water, once dry I used green and yellow colour pastes and a circle stencil which added dimension and texture, once dry I added another layer using black acrylic paint and an awesome wing stencil. I placed my photograph wothits black mat over the wings and added some green tissue paper, pattern paper, wash tape and dyed gauze.

To finish the layout off I have machine stitched with black thread and added some gold shimmer powder, background stamping and doodling.

I hope this layout has inspired you too create today.....
