Using some masterboard pieces

When I got some new stash I had a play on camera and made this masterboard using the Seth Apter paints and embossing powders…

Well I finally got around to using some it.

I made a couple of cards using it and some other bits and pieces from the stash…

Card one features a butterfly stamped and embossed using the same Seth Apter embossing powders and a little tag and doily added for more texture and to make it very pretty!

Card 2 has a very very very embossed heart die cut on it and a black circle for contrast.

Absolutely adore the layers in the embossed heart. So scrummy!

So there is still some masterboard to use up but here are two of the finished pieces at least!

Happy crafting!

Next circle journal page

I had to do the other side of the journal page that I shared yesterday and chose a completely different colour scheme.

I chose to cover even less of the background with paint and instead layered up some papers and washi tape to create the main base and then added some paints to it. I also added rub ons and some doodles.

Then I assembled lots of layers for under the main image of the Darcy heart.

I chose to use some neon pink painted card and some alcohol ink coloured vellum along with some copper thread. I heat embossed the heart onto some painted paper and then added gold pen around the edge to give it a gilded look.

This more junk journal approach really spoke to me when I made it… and contrasted lots to the previous page.

I also have a little extra for Hazel as I made a little piece for inside the envelope too…

This is again very different from the other pages. I really wanted to play with the Chunky Rust embossing powder from Seth Apter. This gave me the perfect opportunity.

First I created an earthy and rustic backgroynd with paints and stamping. Then I added the lino print style house onto another piece of painted paper.

I then took a piece of card and added lots of layers of the rust embossing on it. I also added more of it to the panel in a more organic way around the edges. Love how this looks.

So overall three very different pieces of art for Hazel in her cool journal.

Happy crafting!
