I started this one by applying some modeling paste on the canvas.
Added some colors (my moms favorite!). 


The fine word 'precious' with two coats of gesso.


For this project I cut up one of the fine stem frame and layered them on one side.

October Inspiration by Debbie Burns

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share my October projects. 

"Beauty"

I love this time of the year.  Usually the temps are on the cool side and the leaves are changing colors,  but so far we've had an unseasonably warm Autumn.  Thoughts of Autumn past spun around in my head and lead to me create this layout featuring a picture of my grandmother.  I was also inspired by the October Challenge at Words &  Paintery.  I added several colors of distress stain to my background paper along with some stamping, micro beads and glass glitter.




I love the detailed Marianne's Butterfly.  I embossed it with some Nutmeg 
embossing powder and added paprika, twig  and gold micro beads.



Lots of warms Autumn colors.  The Corner Vine Leaves embossed with Sage embossing powder,
  the Large Leafy Vine embossed dark brown and beneath them I used the Corner Lorena, embossed with an antique teal powder.  



Tucked under my photo I used the Large Leafy Vine, Corner Vine Leaves and
Mini Flourish Bits, and my title is from the Mini Word Set 1.


2Crafty Chipboard used:


Corner Lorena
Corner Vine Leaves
Mini Flourish Bits
Marianne's Butterflies
Mini Word Set 1

My next layout features my friend's beautiful daughter.

"Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful"

Soft colors adorn this layout from the background paper with added distress stains,
stamping and paint splatters, with detailed chipboard that encircle the photo along
with flowers edged in gold glitter.


The Celebration Swirls and 6" Circle Dot Frame were embossed teal.  The Decorative Disc Set 1
 and Foliage Set 3 embossed gold.  Gold microbeads were added to the Celebrations Swirls.


Here you can see more of the Foliage Set 3 and Celebration Swirls.



In keeping with the color scheme, I embossed the title an antique teal.

Karine's October share + video tutorial

Dear crafty friends,

It's Karine here today to share with you two layouts
. The first one is called «Love» and it features my brother's family.


I love this picture of them.
 My brother seems so happy and in love, that I wanted to show that in my layout.


To do so, I started with the Love Heart Frames, that I embossed with a dark brown
 embossing powder. It was my focal piece.


To give more texture to my layout, I used pieces of the Grid Panel, embossed in copper. 
I placed those pieces here and there, behind my embellishments clusters.


I also used one of the Fine Heart Borders and cut it in pieces.


I embossed them with a gold embossing powder and placed them here and there, 
over my flowers, in a curved shape. I love the effect.


My title piece is the word «Love» from the Line Words - Happiness Borders. I used 
the same copper embossing powder than before to emboss it.


Some other close-ups...



I created a video tutorial for this layout. Enjoy.




2Crafty chipboards used:

Lace Heart Frames

Line Words - Happiness Borders


My second layout is called «Family» and it features my two kids with their cousin.


This time, my focal piece is the title.


I embossed the «Family» title with a turquoise embossing powder, to go with my mixed media background.


I decided my picture needed some kind of framing, si I choose one of the 6'' Circle Revolution Frames and embossed it a deep teal color.


Just peeking from underneath my flowers clusters are the Mini Branches, also embossed
 with a deep teal embossing powder.


I love the effect against the background.


I then selected the Leafy Silhouettes, embossed the same turquoise embossing powder
 than before and scattered them around my flowers clusters.


I love the delicate shape of those Leafy Silhouettes.

I hope you like my layouts.
