Workshop Project Life Disney Magic @ Scrobby

My first workshop @ Scrobby was so much fun. Three hours full of Disney Magic using the Simple Stories Say Cheese II line. This was my first Project Life workshop and i really enjoyed it. The new workshop space looked amazing, such a beautiful home. Look at all of my students creating, makes me happy!
My new workshop is now online, you can find the details here. This time it's gonna be a Memory Planner workshop. Seriously addicted on working in my Heidi Swapp and Webster's Pages planner.
Thank you for visiting my blog, have a great weekend!

Project Life

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well! Just a quick update here.
Today i want to show a new Project Life spread i made with Kelly Purkey's Hero Arts Stamps and Basic Grey Second City papers. I just love these fresh Basic Grey colors, they are very easy to work with. Never thought i would say that when using so many bright colors but it is true! I bought the digital Second City papers on Jessica Sprague and printed them at home. So i'll guess this is called a Hybrid Project Life spread :)
I will be teaching my workshop Disney Magic @ Scrobby this weekend, and it is sold out, yay! Very excited about this, i cannot wait! For those that are joining me this weekend, i am looking forward to meet you :) Lot's of other exciting things happening at the moment. Looking forward to share my journey with you! Love Fauve

Layout:Beautiful memories-All that glitters

Tutorial: I took the gold baroque paper and used it as the background for my layout. Then i cut the white polkadot paper into a 6x12 piece and adhered it to the middle of the background paper. On the sides of the gold baroque papier i placed 2x12 strips of parchment paper and stitched them. Then i layered my photo on to a piece of gold chevron and parchment paper and glued them together in the middle. I cut out several butterflies and used some flower and frame diecuts and sticked them under my photo. When i was sure of the placements, i glued them to the background. After that i stitched the gold chevron paper in place and added a title and journaling tags.

Card/label: All that glitters

Tutorial: I took a large tag and traced the shape onto the back of the white/gold polkadot paper. I cut the tag out and punched a hole in the top center. Then i took a piece of string, looped it through and pulled it tight. Then i took a piece of parchment paper and adhered it to the middle of the tag. I cut a rectangle piece of the mint butterfly paper and cut a triangle from the bottom to create a banner. To secure the paper to the tag i stitched it together on the top of the butterfly paper. Then i layered two diecut framed and sticked them to the middle of the banner. With 3-d foam i adhered the gold foil eggs and butterfly.

Mixed Media: Totally Awesome- Off the wall

Tutorial: I took a blank canvas and glued the jeans paper to the background using matte medium. When it was dry i glued on the mesh, metal items and wooden Love Always banner. After that i covered all the items with a layer of gesso and set aside to dry or use your heattool. Once it was dry i added structure paste using some stencils and let it dry. I then took Viva Decor rust colored paint and covered the metal embellishments in the corners. In a spray bottle i mixed Viva Decor graphite paint and black ecoline with water and sprayed one corner and shook off the acces paint and water. After it was dried with the heattool i did the same to the other corner. Some corners were still to dark so i added more water to make it lighter. To match my photo i mixed some green and white paint and painted some areas in the left upper and right lower corner. Once everything was dried, i used the checker plate stamp to cover the tissue paper. I distressed the blue paper using my scissors and applied it to the middle of the canvas. I cut the Totally Awesome from the paper and used some blendable crayons to give it more color. I also used a brown crayon for the frame of the photo and adhered it on top of the papers.
