Hello dear friends near and far, once again it's Friday which means release time over at TCR and CCG. The 15 August challenge was also released some days ago at UOAS, and as always the DT have created stunning pages.
Here is the palette with Deep Dusty Pink, Light Minty Teal, Pale Lilac Grey, Pastel Olive Green.
These colours were initially really challenging for me. However, Julie Wink's amazing class "Layered Layouts" at Miss Art's Papercrafting School set my mojo moving in the right direction and once I had started, the page more or less scrapped itself. I actually also made a sequel to my page while I had the steam up, I'll soon show you this second TCR page ;))
Those of you who haven't discovered Miss Art's yet, boy have you missed something! Headmistress is wonderful Alyssa McGrew and the list of teachers is like that of of Oscar nominees - truly star spangled! You will be taken directly to the school if you click HERE
So after a rather longwinded intro, this is my take on TCR palette #72:
The lady in the photo is my MIL, it was taken in the mid 1950's.
The backing paper is by Danish Tilda. I started by washing it in a thin coat of Gesso and misting it in TA Golden Walnut and Suede. I also flicked on some drops of the same mists. Then some script stamping on the left.
The butterflies travelling over the page are cut out from a paper by Swedish Pion Design.
The chippie frame is from French online store Embélliscrap, I chalked it first in Chestnut Roan, then in Glacier Ice. Under it is a dotted paper from Tilda that I cut in the same shape as the frame.
The mauvish flowers are snipped off from a Prima carnation vine, the brown rose, lace and pearls are from my stash. IRL the lace and pearls almost hover in mid-air, took quite a bit of work with my glue gun to get the effect.
Some torn muslin tucked in under the layers and some liquid ink in champagne poured in rivulets. I think the pebbles with the bird and rose are Basic Grey Curio.
Another close up of the layers. Some more cut-outs from Pion Design and something little from the K&Co Flora & Fauna ephemera pack.
I had a couple of birthday cards up on the blog of Les Papiers de Pandore on Wednesday 17th, sorry for the delay in posting it here. Julie uses a different blog motor than Blogspot and it seems that the twine are not compatible why photos on her blog simply don't show on mine. Really annoying.
First a typcial Eila card with lace and a flower.
The white lacey layer under the flower is German scrap from Australian online store Maxine's Melange. It comes in a long strip but I cut out sections and layered them under and around the Prima silk bloom.
Have to admit I've totally forgotten if the chippie flourish is from Maxine's or Imaginarium Designs, that's really bad of me.
And the other card:
The chippie cup and pot are from KaiserCraft. I misted some muslin in TA Sunflower and tucked in under the pot. Then some torn out threads from the muslin that I misted in TA Sand and Suede and placed above the cup to mimic steam. The resin apple pin is from Leean Pearce's Chip Chop Shop.
Tack så mycket för besöket! as we say in my lingo when we thank people for their much appreciated visit. So lovely to have had you for a peek, thank you warmly and hope to see you again!
Wish you all a wonderful weekend! xoxoxo Eila
