Kim’s Tutorial for July

by admin ~ July 21st, 2014

Hi All today its Kim on the blog sharing with you a way to use bling and lazer cuts and soften them with some ribbon they do work well together but sometimes they are a bit harsh to look at even stark but by simply threading in some soft ribbon you can soften the whole effect.

Below is my LO and some close up images of the ribbon threaded through the bling and how soft it looks.

Kids grow up so quickly don’t they!  I can’t believe my baby is 4 & a half already!

Natural beauty by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ July 15th, 2014

Good morning Judith here with another FWAB project to share.  My second project this month is a layout featuring pearls and flowers. I am a keen gardener and have lots of photos of flowers from my garden so decided to create a layout about one of them. To create my background I have used a piece of Blue Fern Studio Ombre Dreams pattern paper which has a delicate pattern printed on it. To this I added some texture paste using a Crafters Workshop stencil and also stamped with a text stamp. I added a photo matted on another piece of Ombre Dreams paper and placed some Blue Fern Studio chipboard.

IMG_5117

Then it was time to create my clusters. Here are some close ups.

IMG_5121

I have used a FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish in Pearl which I cut up. Using one part on the bottom cluster and one part on the top cluster.IMG_5120

Both clusters include a mix of flowers but each one has a FWAB flower. For the top cluster I used a FWAB Elise flower in burnt orange.IMG_5119

And in the bottom cluster I have used a FWAB Maddison flower in pink.

IMG_5118

I also used some FWAB individual adhesive pearls in pearl. You can see one used as a centre of the small pink flower in the photo above. I also scattered a few around the page.

Thanks for looking.

Everyone is Special canvas by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ July 8th, 2014

Good morning FWAB fans. This month I thought I’d try something different and do a mixed media canvas and play around with a number of different mediums as well as some FWAB goodness.

IMG_4348

To create the background I gessoed a canvas and then  painted stripes of Twinkling H20 paints and normal watercolours paints and blended them with water. I then used 2 different stencils and 3 different mediums: – Viva Decor stone art texture paste,

IMG_4354

Shimmerz Dazzelerz texture paste, which I then covered in gesso to tone it down,

IMG_4351

 and gel medium

IMG_4352

 I then set about creating a sea like scene. I painted some chipboard grasses and adhered them to the canvas. Then I overlaid them with FWAB Chloe Flourishes in blue and purple

IMG_4349

 I added some chipboard seahorses coated in Viva Decor Inka Gold Cobalt and added some FWAB individual adhesive pearls in purple along its tail.

IMG_4343

 Next I added my own version of the rainbow fish created with sequins.

IMG_4353

Finally, I added a quote and my canvas was finished.

Thanks for looking

Giggles with Linda T

by admin ~ July 7th, 2014

Hello FWAB followers.

Today I wanted to share with you a layout that has been made into a scenery rather than just a decorated page, which is my normal style hehe.

“Giggles”

IMG_0144 copy

This is such an old photo of my now 14 & 9 year olds doing a touch of gardening.

IMG_0116 copy

Using a small piece of the grass from the  FWAB Lee’s Tree then another piece of grass from  FWAB Trent’s Fence I created a grassy spot under the tree adding a touch of gold metallic paint to blend them, I also added the smallest toadstool from FWAB Taylah’s Toadstools.

IMG_0118 copy

I took the dark brown fence from FWAB Trent’s Fence and cut it in 2 pieces adding one piece to each side of the photo.

IMG_0120 copy

IMG_0134 copy

Cutting up a pack of  FWAB Jack Vine Green  I was able to threat pieces of it through the tree.

IMG_0138 copy

IMG_0142 copy

Here you can see the overall effect, I even cut the photo slightly to allow the chipboard tree to become one with the photo, so it looked like it was coming out of the garden.

That’s all from me today hope you enjoyed my little garden scene layout

Doing What you Love-Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ June 26th, 2014

Hi Everyone,

I am back again with another layout to share with you. I have to admit that this layout is different to my usual style! I think it is my lack of flowers??

This layout using lots of layers and texture in the  background.

I have used FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish and FWAB Adhesive Pearls in Mango.

FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Mango

  FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Pearl

Doing-what-you-love-close-u

Doing-what-you-love-clup2

As I wanted to keep the  FWAB Adhesive Pearls in Mango exactly spaced as they are in the packet I just cut the strip and used some liquid glue that dries clear and adhered the strip on my layout. This was a quick and easy way to line the pearls up.

A touch of Colour and a Flourish

by admin ~ June 25th, 2014

Hi its Kim again today and am I wanting to share with you all a layout that I just love and I love the way the Jessie Flourish works so well with the grunge look of my layout.

learn to pause_edited-1

 

This is the whole layout I find I tend to cut and re layer the flourish to suit my layouts but with the Jessie Flourish it has 2 extra branches that you can add where ever you want and this is what I have done here.

Thank you for looking at my blog post I hope it has inspired you to try using the Jessie Flourish.

Dream big by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ June 24th, 2014

Good morning. Today I have a layout to share with you using some FWAB flowers and bling.

I’m still milking the photos I took on Mother’s Day and have combined my FWAB goodies with Kaisercraft Dream Big patterned paper and collectables.

IMG_3065

I created the background using a stencil and texture paste. Then I stamped around the edge with a text stamp and peach ink. Finally, I flicked some teal spray around the outside of the texture paste.

I created a base piece for my photo to sit on using a strip of punched patterned paper and a sticker from the range. Then I matted my photo and placed on this base. I used a chipboard circular frame and then added my embellishments along the bottom. I used a couple of FWAB Elise burnt orange flowers situated amongst some Peterloo botanic flowers. I added some more chipboard and overlaid it with a FWAB Elise Silver Rhinestone Flourish cut up into two pieces. Lastly, I added a few of the Collectables from the range. Here are a few closeups.

My Cheeky Monkey – Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ June 22nd, 2014

Hi Everyone,

It has been such eventful scrapping month since I last posted.  I was fortune enough to go to the Brisbane Scrapbook Expo and help in the classroom with two very talented ladies teaching Angella Peardon and Sonia Thomason.  I had such a fabulous time catching up with many people and meeting many others.  Of course I managed to come home with a few (or many) new goodies and was inspired by all the talent that was on display at the show.

The project I would like to share with you today is a layout that I have created of my younger son.  He really is a “Cheeky Monkey” but has such a fun , easy going personality and is very loveable!

I have used two of  the vibrant FWAB Jessie Flourish Cherry Red.

I have cut the FWAB Jessie Flourish Cherry Red  into pieces as that way I can create the illusion that the flourish is entwined in the cluster.

Cheeky-Monkey-Close-up-2

 

I have also used FWAB Maddison Flowers 3pk – Chocolate. This flower worked well at a feature of the cluster.

Shaker card tutorial by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ June 17th, 2014

Good morning FWAB fans. It’s my turn this month to do a tutorial. I love making interactive cards so I thought I’d share with you a couple of ways of making shaker cards .

Here are the 2 cards I will be showing you how to make.

IMG_3031

First I will be explaining how to make the ’16′ birthday card which has the shaker part embedded in the card so that the front is flat.

  1.  For my first card I decided to make a star shaped shaker.  I used 2 different sized Spellbinder nestability dies  but really you just need 2 different sized templates that you can cut out.
  2. Make the base of your card from cardstock such that the larger of the templates will fit on to the front of it easily.
  3. Cut your  foam so that it is slightly smaller than the front of the card but still large enough for the larger shape to fit on. Cut out the larger shape from the foam. I used 2 pieces as I was adding beads for the shaker and it needed to be quite deep. Also my foam was fairly thin. Glue the foam together if using more than 1 sheet.
  4. Cut a square piece of patterned paper to form the back of the shaker . Embellish it. I just used some single adhesive FWAB teal pearls to created a number.
  5. Cut a square piece of acetate to form the window.
  6. Cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the front of the cardstock base to form the front of the card. Place the foam on the back of the paper and trace where the window is going to be. Then place or trace your smaller die/template inside this so that the front window is smaller than the back and cut it out.
  7. Construct your card. Embellish as desired.
  8. 20144-002

Voila you should now have a shaker card.

IMG_3030

My second type of shaker card has the shaker standing proud of the card.

  1. For this you need to cut a piece of patterned paper in the shape of the shaker to form the back of the shaker. I embellished it with a sticker and some FWAB olive green adhesive pearls
  2. Adhere thin width foam tape around the edge of the shape in one continuous piece (Tip: I found it easier if I removed all backing from the tape). I did 2 layers as I was using beads but if you were just using glitter, 1 layer would do.
  3. Cut a piece of acetate to the same size as your base and adhere to the top of the foam tape.
  4. Create a frame which has an opening slightly smaller than your shaker so that you don’t see the foam tape and adhere to the front of your shaker.

IMG_3028-001

Create a card and adhere the shaker to the front and embellish as desired.

IMG_3029

 I hope this has inspired you to have a go at shaker cards and use FWAB to embellish them.

Good morning FWAB fans. It’s wonderful to be back here for another 6 months and carry on working with the FWABulous Flourish With a Bling products.

Today I have a grungy layout to share with you. This layout features a photo of my kids taken on Mother’s Day, one of the few days I can get them to cooperate in photo taking and I have used Mr Fox Kaisercraft collection. I created the background by stamping around the edge and included some copper heat embossing on the edges and in the middle of the page. I also used a stencil and added some metallic texture paste and finally I flicked some splotches of spray around.

IMG_1891

I love how the white Elise flowers can be sprayed to complement your layout. I have sprayed these two with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Cattail Copper Brown. I also cut off some swirls from the Grace Pearl Flourish in Copper and added them to complement the flowers.

IMG_1892

I also dotted a few individual copper adhesive pearls around the page.

IMG_1893

I hope I’ve inspired you to get grungy.

Thanks for looking.

I will start with LO.

“Together”

26

I have chosen wedding photo and I usually like to use blue colours for wedding layouts to match my bouquet with blue hydrangea.

28

FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Blue fit perfectly into my colour palette.

30

I have also used pearls from the hidden parts of Chloe flourish to create pearl frame to the photo.

I used FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Mango to make larger photo frame and I also used it for flower centers.

I have also created summer mini cards set. I used different small parts from FWAB flourishes which I had from my previous projects.

First card is featuring amazing FWAB Taylah’s Toadstools which I absolutely love.

21

Second card with the bird in the nest is featuring pieces of FWAB Adam Large Vine and FWAB Elise Flourish Antique Brown.

25

And last but not least the most bright card featuring piece of FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Gold.

22

For all cards I have also used different colours of FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Packs:

- FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Teal

- FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Red

- FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Mango

Hugs,

Evgenia.

Hi!

Tatiana Yemelyanenko is here and today I’d like to  share my new card.  Title on the card means ‘thank you’ on Russian. I’ve used small piece of Elise flourish in Antique Brown and one cream flower.

I changed core of the flower because I need warm color for my card.

Love You by Tracey Fowler

Ben, our eldest son has grown up so much in the last 6 months. He changed schools at the beginning of the year and has matured, become more responsible, and been the happiest we have ever seen him. I am so proud to call this young man my son!

I have created this layout using FWAB Luke Flourish Black, and FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Blue.

I just love how the FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Blue, enhance the blue background and  add a “pop” of colour to the cluster.

“Love You”

Love-you

My second project that I would like to share with you is a card that I have created using FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Antique Gold and the very cute flower from the FWAB Elise Flourish Silver – Cream & Pink flowers (see below)

FWAB Elise Flourish Silver - Cream & Pink flowers

“Happy Birthday” Card

Happy-Birthday

I have used a wood grain paper as my base, then inked the chipboard frame with distress stain in bronze, added the FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Antique Gold randomly around the frame.

A daughter is a forever friend by Judith Armstrong

Good morning FWAB friends. Here is my 2nd and last post for May and FWAB. This is a layout including a photo of my daughter and I taken on Mother’s Day last weekend by my son. I created the background using watercolour paint and then stenciled the brick design on using some Viva Decor Ferro Texture Paste. I then added a few splatters of mists and added some sequins and some individual FWAB adhesive pearls in teal.

IMG_1513For my cluster I used a FWAB Grace Pearl flourish in teal.

I used a couple of flowers and I also sprayed a FWAB Elise white flower with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst spray in Cattail Copper Brown.

Thanks for looking. I hope you have enjoyed my creations over the last 12 months. I have certainly enjoyed working with FWAB.
