"#justsayin" by Jasmine

Hello hello.

I can't tell you how many times I tried to scrap this photo...  I had all of the embellishments I was using but no matter what I tried, it just didn't work.

Then I got it.  Yay.  Always persist and never give up right?  
No matter how many pages you have to throw

I am really happy with it now and it was exactly how I pictured it....I just didn't realise it until about the 5th attempt.

I began using layers of stamping and stenciling to "grunge" up the background using colours taken from the photo.  I added my bits of D-lish goodness like the wordfetti, resin flower, flair button, journal spot, resin stars, pieces like the Biker boy and lightning bolt from a past kit, sequin bow and a couple of sequins.

So if at first you don't succeed, try again, and again, and maybe even again.

"See The Good" by Anthea

Hi Everyone!
Hope you are all well today!? 
Today I am sharing a LO that I did of my son recently.  I have been playing a bit with different mediums recently and the I pulled out a powdered watercolour paint that I had forgotten I had. I sprinkled it on my page and sprayed it with water and fell in love with the effect. 
Once it was dry I squiggled lines all over the paint and added some random stamping with stamps I that I got from D-lish in last years Christmas Advent Calendar.   (It was sooooo cool to open up a package with a D-lish goodie in it every day of December till Christmas and even though I know Christmas is a while away, I so hope the Boss Lady does the same thing this year!) I then added some yellow texture past through a D-lish stencil and used a yellow sharpie to add a little bit more colour to my drips. 
I then added some yellow punchinella to give some more depth to the LO and for good measure I also added a few faceted D-lish dots.
I then backed a creative cut (from a past JAP kit) with some scrap paper I had been playing with. 
I love the effect of the paper poking through the creative cuts.
I then used a random sticker I had for the title, but found it was blending in too much to the page - so to make it pop a bit more - I cut out part of a chevron from a D-lish bag and tucked it in behind.  The black dots are one of the D-lish stamps that I have used.
Well, that is it for now.
As usual - thanks so much for looking and I hope I have inspired you to go and create.
Till next time,
Take care

Love You More Than Words | Amanda Lawrence

Do you ever make a page, step back and think 'did I really just make that?' Well that was me with my latest layout I'm sharing today. To be honest. I'm not sure where the idea came from or how it evolved into the end product, but it did and I couldn't be happier with the result. I truly love how it turned out!

 I had a set of the Creative Cuts - Flowers on my desk as one of them had torn while getting it off the sticky mat. I felt like playing with some of my watercolours (just a cheap set from officeworks) so I chose a few colours and began colouring the cuts. So often we use these cut outs white or 'as is' so I really wanted to jazz them up with a little colour. 

I then dug through my scraps and found some coordinating tonal papers to back them with before finishing each with a little handstitching around the centres of each flower.

I used the same watercolours with my acrylic stamping block to add some colour to the background. I simply painted some colour on the block and stamped it down onto the cardstock to create a watercolour look. I also added a few flicks of each colour and then finally some black flicks and splatters to make it pop. 

The tab was stamped on some scrap paper using the Everyday Words/Icons acrylic set from the store. I also added a flair button here as well. This one was from the limited edition mini kits but there are plenty of other designs to choose from here.

I had some of the Colour Me Cuts - Butterflies lying around and thought they would add the perfect touch to this page. I used the same cheap watercolours to paint them and I think they look amazing!

I finished off the page by stamping a few random 'xo' (which is also from the stamp set mentioned previously) and then a scattering of a few sequins from the loose mix bag available in the store. 

I hope my share has inspired you today and also demonstrated how you can make something beautiful with very few supplies!

See you next time, 
Amanda x

You make my heart smile, by Amanda H

Hello D-lish fans!
Have you seen the new Colour Me Cuts in store? Perfect designs and shapes - cut out and ready for you to colour for your pages. And that what I did to create today's page.
I started with a white background on a pink patterned paper and a 5x7 photo. I used watercolour paint and stamped images on the background.
I then used the same watercolour paint on some Colour me cuts - the Wildflowers. I painted these and then layered them in three clusters on the page. I paired these flowers with D-lish goodies and some old printed chipboard pieces from my stash.
In this main cluster, the largest painted wildflower is layered with: Paper leaves, stamen, cornflowers, flair button and a resin flower.
In the top cluster, a smaller painted wildflower is tucked in the corner, with stamen, a bitty bow clip and a pink Journal it.
Lastly on the side, I use one more painted wildflower with more stamen and a paper leaf.
Once everything was stuck down, I decided I needed some sparkle, so I painted the Colour Me Cuts with some glittery white. A perfect finishing touch.
Thanks for looking today,

Summer with Ros Aggett-Madley

Not a gelli printed page in sight for this one!
I wanted to showcase the gorgeous Creative Cuts and found that they really popped  when I sat them on a piece of black card.
Just a few splats of gold and my background was done.

I've used the Seed Stem Creative Cuts for my layout.
I have coloured these with Distress Oxide inks.  Some smooched onto my craft mat with a spritz of water and some applied direct from the inkpad.

I coloured the Summer Wood Veneer with coordinating ink and mounted this on top of my photo.  Underneath the title I have popped a couple of Micro Petals and although you can't see them, there is a few loose sequins hiding among the stems.
There's also a few D-lish Dots scattered around the page.

My page was cut so that it was mounted on a piece of white cardstock, not that you can see here, but it just helped frame the whole page.
Down the bottom I've added a few more embellies with a little heart from a Just Add Paper kit.

Thanks for joining me, hope you've been inspired ♥

Do you art journal? by Mal

Do you art journal?

I don't do a lot but of late I've been doing a lot more and trying things in my art journal without the pressure of doing a page. I also love how all techniques when you art journal are all in one place.

Using an art journal means I don't use a lot of embelishments as I don't want to add anymore bulk to my journal.

So I tend to use a lot of paint, flat embies and stamps and stencils.

I used a couple of D-lish stencils on this page.
I used the mini stencil in cobblestone design from the JAP kit - Peach Twist. on wet paint I used a baby wipe to wipe over the stencil. It removes some of the paint in the design of the hey.

Then I used the spider web stencil and used it as a stamp. I wiped over it with ink and stamped with it.

I've got heaps of the D-lish stencils; they're the perfect size at 5x5 to use on a page, or a card or an art journal page.

I took some of the vellum butterflies from a past Just Add Paper kit, cut them out and using gel medium stuck them to the page.
I must say I wouldn't normally use these embellishment but on this type of page I feel I can use them.

I also used some ripped up doiley, also from a past JAP kit and stuck that down as well with gel medium.

Last but not least I took a ombre wordfetti title and glued that to my page.

 What do you think?

You and Me - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am back with my first July share, and this one I have based on this months inspiration board. Here is a reminder of the inspiration board:
I loved the monochromatic touch to this moodboard, and also the touches of luxury with the silver glitter colour and the crystal earrings. 
I was inspired to create this layout, using a photo from a nieces wedding, you can't get much more luxurious than with a wedding. 
You and Me
I started by using some transparent texture paste, to which I sprinkled some glitter over whilst it was wet. 
I embellished the layout by adding a 6 inch white paper doilyrose creative cuts which I coloured silver, carnations and sequins.

I have also included a sequin bow
I think this layout really does have a touch of luxury about it, glitter and sequins certainly assist that.
Until next time, happy scrapping.
