Simple layered Layout

I love how easily chipboard slips into a layered project.
For this layout I have painted them with metallic acrylic paint, quick and simple.
I have used mainly 7 dots papers and various embellies. 

The chipboard I have used can be found in the web shop here.

Thanks for looking

Magical Milestones layout by Tania

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be here sharing my first post for Memory Maze as a DT member. I have such a gorgeous pack of goodies to work through and create with. My first project is a Mixed Media layout, with a watercolour background! I'm quite fond of this type of background.

I layered up with some stenciling and lots of stamping. The background stencil I used is this cool one from Memory Maze:

Inverse bricks by bricks small

My chosen chipboard pieces are the Script mini words, title and the gorgeous set (6), of butterflies:

Wire butterflies 100 x 120

My watercolour background was made with a mix of watercolour paints and Dylusions Sprays mixed with water. I coloured all of my chipboard pieces with some Smooch Accent ink, which I have had in my stash for a long time! It's perfect for these pieces. Just a layer of Gesso first, then the ink goes on nice and smooth!!!

Before adding my photo, I added some paper layers and used some pocket cards and other bits of ephemera. 

I love these butterflies, can imagine a million more projects with them. Thanks for visiting!!!

Cool kid with Candy

Welcome everyone to another month of creating.
Today I have used some mixed media on my layout. 

I firstly covered my cardstock with some clear gesso. 
Using a ruler and a black stabilo pencil I drew black lines
across the middle of my cardstock, some darker than the others.
Spray these with water and let run. Carefull not to make your cardstock
to wet. It will fall apart.
You can dry between water sprays if you like.


Use a pencil to mark where you want to place your photo,
then spray with some spray just around where your photo is to go.
Dry this well.

The chipboard I covered with versamark 
then a couple of coats of the embossing powder. 
Place all your papers, flowers and the rest of the embellies onto your layout.
And then splatter some white ink around.

Superstar-by Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone!
Leanne here to share another project with you today, using Memory Maze Chipboard Products.

Superstar Layout

Today I am sharing a layout I created of my daughter Holly, It was superhero dress up day at school. She decided to go dressed as Wonder Woman, I created the background using dylusion paints. I stencilled over the background with versamark ink, then I used cosmic shimmer guilding flakes in gold and silver. I then used the Memory Maze star stencil with some whipped spackle for my background building the layers.

For my title I used the Memory Maze Superstar, I painted it in acrylic paint red and blue, I then used glossy accents over the title to give it a nice shiny look.The stars I used Cosmic shimmer guilding flakes to give the beautiful gold look.
The rest of the layout I used pink payslie sticker stars with gold cardstock behind them.

Fun with Journal and mixed media sheets

For my first Dt post I have had some fun with the Journal/mixed media sheets.

Check out the designs here....

I have used a couple of different sheets to do my goth girl tags.

This one I called Raven...

And her sister Willow....

There are quite a few themes and designs to choose from and they great for use in your art journals as well.

I fussy cut out the elements from the sheet and using paper tole techniques made them into 3D tags.

Thanks for looking

My very first upload {snow angel}

Hi everyone,

I am super excited to be sharing here regularly @ Memory Maze thank you Sally and the team for inviting me to join in creating with this awesome Chipboard and fab Design Team!

I love to create my own backgrounds so I hope you will find some inspiration in the use of colour and patterns during my time here on the design team.

My first Layout is a layout using a super cool Snow photo I nabbed from my daughters Instagram I love the colours in this photo and it was definitely the inspiration for the background of this layout.

Its has been freezing cold down my way so this layout seemed fitting I hope you are inspired!

I have used 12" Marshmallow to create my own background using acrylic paints, stencils, texture tools and a Gelli Plate to create the perfect background for my layout. I have used black cardstock to adhere a mat around my photo and machine stitched with red cotton to blend in with the background. It may be hard to see but I have used a glitter glass bead paste through a snowflake design stencil to add that extra winter feel. To give even more dimension I have added gauze and a shimmering white star detailed tulle underneath the photograph

To create the title of this layout I have used Memory Maze's Chipboard title "ANGEL"

I painted the chipboard title Turquoise to coordinate with my daughters Snow Jacket and Beanie teamed it with white Thickers for the word SNOW.....

To complete the layout I have added pieces of random washi tape to the background and a Black Hambly Transparency frame stitched with red wool to frame the important journaling on the layout. To frame the layout I have hand drawn the edges with a black fude ball pen and added some random background stamping with black ink.

I hope you enjoyed my post thanks of taking the time to read!

Free Spirit-By Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone !
Leanne back to share a layout with you today, using the wonderful Memory Maze products.

Free Spirit Layout

We had a day out in Melbourne visiting some street art, so many good places and little laneways to see all the wonderful art.We took along one of Holly's little friends and took some happy snaps, and this was one of them that I thought I would share.

In my background I used the Memory Maze stencil J3109 with denim distress ink.

I used the Memory Maze chipboard title Free Spirit, I then painted it with liquitex paint and used a background stamp over it with white ink. I then used some of the Faber Castell big brush pens, to fill in some of the pattern in black and cobalt blue. Once dried I used glossy accents over it to make it glossy and shiny.

Memory Maze supplies used:
Stencil I used for the background of my page.
