Last 2 layouts for Scraps Of Elegance for July!

Hi there everyone. Hope you all have a great week ahead. 

Here are 2 layouts I created with the Home Sweet Home kit from Scraps Of Elegance for July. 
This month's kit also included the very pretty Prairie Chic collection from Bo Bunny, which I have included here.  


"Oldest & Youngest" 

For this layout above, I was inspired by my extremely talented friend Georgia Heald (if you have not found her blog yet go HERE and check out her awesomeness ) in 2 ways. 1) I decided to cut strips of paper to use on my background rather than tearing them as I usually do! 2) I used a crackle effect as my background as I saw on one of her canvases HERE 
Now enter another bit of information I picked up from this video from the very sweet Adrienne Ford HERE . Adrienne showed a way to get the crackle effect in a very quick way. It hasnt turned out the best but its a technique I will try again for sure! I have the very same problem as Adrienne... I have no patience when it comes to waiting for mixed media mediums to dry.. now more than ever since having the baby! I kind of have snippets of time here and there and given that patience is NOT my middle name anyway, I am always on the lookout for ideas that cut time. So thanks Adrienne and Georgia for the inspiration :) Keep it coming :) 

Hope you liked my layouts!

  4. such precious photos, and your design is fabulous there

  5. These really are lovely..gorgeous photos & I see the plasterer's tape is still getting a work out! Afraid I'm totally 'with' you re: impatient scrapping....that's why my colours usually get mixed up...don't leave 'em long enough to dry!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Oh Nadia these layouts are gorgeous! What precious moments in the photos too.. I love the back ground in the first one, as well as the wonderful memory in the photo.. and your second one is so lovely too.. and I really am in awe of Georgia's work.. she is amazing!! and drying time for stuff is a bit longer I reckon in winter too.. I tend to go and do something else for a while, and I totally understand about grabbing a few minutes here and there to scrap.. You are amazing, I only have one child at home at the moment and I wonder where my day goes!! Take care!!
