Hello, My Name is... ll Chrsiis Mannix

Hello Lovelies
Chrissi here today with a 12x12 layout using a few different Flutterby bits and pieces.
I started with some patterned paper from the Parent of the Year Collection. I used gesso to create a focal area for my photo.

I used some of my favourite Every Day Etc Cards to add layers to my photo. Then I used some old Photo Cut Outs to embellish my picture. i love the Hello my Name IS. It was perfect for my photo. I used some alphabet stamps to add my gorgeous Nephews name to the label.
I really wanted to add some of my Flutter Colour Paints to my background before I added my photo, but i had already packed them up at this stage- Im in the middle of moving house. In the end I found some paint that matched, and used a stencil from my stash, just to bring more interest into my background. I found all that white just a bit too plain.
Thanks for stopping by, Be back real soon

OMG! You Wouldn't Believe It | Allara Bamforth

Good Morning!

Happy Monday, I'm on the blog today with a layout featuring some of the Parent of the Year collection and a few matching bits and pieces.

Today I've featured a photo of my son, which feels like it was taken a lifetime ago from when we visited Dreamworld in QLD around 6 years ago. My base page is the 12 x 12 Parent of the Year collection 'Is is Bedtime Yet?, to which I 've added a square of 'Where's My List' from the same collection framed by a piece of orange cardstock. I based my colour scheme this time on the colours from the Everday Etc Filler Cards that I have stacked behind my photo with the diamond pattern. I love purple, orange and greens together!

Through the centre of the page, I've mixed some Gel Medium with Grape Soda from the Flutter Colour Small Set - Brights and used the 'Migraine Madness' stencil across the middle of the page. Using the Art Foamies 'This Way' Stamps, I've coated them in both Sunshine Yellow and a mix of Tropicana teal to stamp these over the middle and top right and bottom left corners. Once dry I've splattered some Artic White over the top.

The photo is backed with a mixture of Everyday Etc Filler cards mostly from the 'Parent of the Year Collection. I've add a Die Cut 'Bits and Bobs' for my titles 'OMG! You Wouldn't Believe It!!' and It's a Scary Hood (which I accidently dropped in my paint but decided it looked ok to add anyway!!!).  I also added some extra Sticky Quotes that I had in my stash.

Thanks for taking a peek again today, these colours and ideas would be fabulous to use for any upcoming Halloween Pics you might have, so I hope you give it a try.

Perfect Parent | Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone!
Today I am back with another layout using the 'Parent Of The Year' collection.

I used the 'Parenthood' 12x12 paper as my base and added 
some Flutter Colour Paint in Tropicana Teal

I then applied some Arctic White with a palette knife.

The next layer was to stamp with some Round Random Art Foamies.

I added some Everyday Etc filler cards under my photo, 
and also cut some into strips to layer under my title.

I fussy cut a quote from an Everyday Etc card to use as my title.

I also added a sticker as a simple embellishment to my very busy page.

Thanks for looking

Ready? ll Chrissi Mannix

Hello  Lovelies.
Chrissi here today with a mixed media layout I made using the fabulous new This Way Art Foamies.
We know how much I love playing with mixed media, and the Art Foamies, are my favorite tools at the moment to play with. Using a pattern paper from the new Parent of the Year Collection, and some flutter colour paint, I made my background. I wanted to block out a section of this busy pattern paper  to focus my image on. I love how the paper compliments my photo, but the black gesso mat of  gives it some contrast to make the photo really pop.
Thanks for stopping by, and make sure to come back and see what the rest of the DT are up to.

Do Not Fear Chidbirth | Allara Bamforth

Good Morning Friends,

Allara here on the blog again today with the 'Parent of the Year' collection. For this layout today, I found a photo of myself at 38 weeks pregnant with my third and the look on my face says it all! When I saw the Everyday Etc Card 'Do not Fear Childbirth, That's the Easy Part - There is no epidural for Motherhood' I knew it was the perfect saying to put with this photo. Having two children who were 3 and 18 months with another one due any day - I'm sure I was mad and knew what I was in for!!

For this layout I've taken the 12 x 12 paper 'Spilled Sav' and ripped it 3/4 of the way down and then the 1/4 piece into three more strips. With some distress oxide ink that matched my photo mats I've carefully edged the paper. To the background I've used the Art Foamies 'Edgies' stamped with some Tropicana Teal Flutter Colour - Small Set paint randomly over the background where I was going to place my photo. Then using the Art Foamies - Round Randoms I've stamped with distress oxide ink to the top right and bottom left of my photo and over the ripped layers. To this I've stamped in Black archival some randome script and splattered around some Artic White Paint.

I've used the quote from the Everyday Etc Cards and layered with Everday Etc Filler Cards.  To the bottom left of the quote I've added one of the Flair Buttons. I mounted the layout on a background piece of black cardstock and this helped to tie in the black from the quote. I splattered on some left over paint across the exposed bit of black.

Thanks for taking a peek today, as always all products used are linked back to the shop. This is such a fun collection.

Parenthood: The Scariest Hood | Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone!

Rachel back with you today, with another share 
using the 'Parent of the Year' collection.

I really love the 12x12 papers in this collection, 
and for this layout I decided to use 2 of the papers!

I ripped some strips of the 'Love You Long Time' paper 
then adhered them to the 'Warm Hug' paper.

I added some stitching to the strips, and left on all the threads, 
representing the crazy world of parenthood, am I right!?!?

I added some Everyday Etc filler cards under my photo.

I added some Colour Blast colour paste through a splatter stencil.

I cut out some words from an Everyday Etc card for my title.

I added a flair button, a page tab, a sticker and the 'parenthood' acrylic title.

I also added a star from Charm's Creations.

Thanks for looking
