Say Cheese | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus

Hi Everyone Kerrie here with a super quick layout I created for Artdeco Creations Blog using the newly released Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose Collection
Rambling Rose is a gorgeous floral collection designed by Sue Smyth but Sue has very cleverly added some fabulous patterns on the B side of the papers that can be used for creating male layouts like the one I have created using photos from my favourite son's Contiki Tour of Europe.
(I only have one son so I always tell him he is my favourite son :))



I am not sure why but all my step by step photos were out of focus, so sorry no step by step photos but it is a simple layout with very simple techniques.
Also I added the black line as an after thought and I wish I hadn't I liked the layout much better without but hey I'm not pulling it apart and starting again :)


For my texture I used my Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Rolling Mesh Stencil and Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste. While still wet I sprinkled on some Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with my Couture Creations Heat Tool.
I didn't want full coverage so just sprinkle lightly, you can add more embossing powder if you like as you heat it, remember you can always add more you cannot take away.


 here is a closer look at the touch  texture coming out from under the patterned paper. I have added some fine jute string under the photos to add some more texture
I cut one of the Rambling Rose Wood Veneer Frames into two and added some brown ink and then sprayed them using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Gold Pigment Spray


For my title I again heat embossed using Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder, this time sprinkling in some Couture Creations Copper Embossing Powder to give a variegated colour on the the title


I added some splats of Gold using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Gold Pigment which I previously  made into a spray. I have a spray for each colour of the pigments made up ready to use when I want them.

Once again I am sorry for the lack of step by step photos, I'm not sure why my camera decided not to work.

So Fun | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney  #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreations

Hi Everyone
Kerrie here with a layout I created for Artdeco Creations Blog using the newly released
Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Collection.
I love this collection as it is fresh and fun with a touch of vintage and so perfect for this photo of my great niece and nephews



I used Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste with the Rolling Mesh 6x6 Stencil to create my textured background, sprinkling on a little glitter and set aside to dry.
I then used some left over scraps of L'Aquarelle paper to create my layers, I have also used the barcode strip
Next I cut 2 x Floral Bunting and 1 x Watercolour Bloom dies from Ivory cardstock
I layered everything onto my base cardstock and then embellished using the Brass Frame, some Couture Flowers and Seam Binding Ribbon
Finishing off with some flicks of Pigment Spray and Crystal Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to the flowers to add some sparkle

So Happy | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus 

Hi Everyone, Kerrie here sharing a layout I created for Artdeco Creations Blog using the soon to be released Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle collection.
I am so loving this collection and thought it was perfect for this gorgeous photo celebrating the love between my Nephew and his fiancee




I started by adding some texture using the new 10x10 L'Aquarelle Field of Flowers Stencil and Couture Creations Anna Griffin Embossing Paste


I  randomly spread the embossing paste so as not to leave a square shape


before the embossing paste completely dries I randomly applied some of the Couture Creations Gold Foil, as the embossing paste dried I used the heat tool to help apply the foil.


next I sprayed my base using my Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment Spray


I used Couture Creations Mirror Gold Embossing Powder on the wood veneers, sprinkling on some Glitter while still molten



I then layered everything onto my base



I apologise for the unclear photos, my camera was not wanting to work very well, I think maybe it is time for a new one

Best Friends | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney 
#artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts #couturecreationsaus

Hi Everyone Kerrie here
with a layout I created using a very treasured photo of my late sister with her best friend Summer.
I love this photo of them so happy and relaxed even though my sister had not long been told that she had terminal cancer.
Summer was with my Mum and I when Megan passed away and was such a support to us all.
They were best friends to the end and Summer will always hold a special place in my heart for being such an amazing friend to Megan



My layout is very simple as I wanted the photo to shine as it should.
I have used Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle collection, I truly love this collection and can't wait for it to hit the shelves as you will all love creating with it too.

I have cheated somewhat and  created my background layers using the b side of the Inspiration Cards, cutting a pennant shape from just the one



I arranged them all on my base cardstock and once I was happy with the arrangement I flipped the whole thing over and placed strips of Couture Creations Double Sided Tape all over to hold all the cards in place. Peeled off the backing paper and laid the whole piece straight down


Next I diecut,  2 x Drifting Frond Die from Gold Glitter Card
I also used one of the Diecut Shapes to layer under my photo

I adhered my photo to 3D foam tape to give it some dimension and then stuck it straight down onto the diecut shape, leaving the part showing not stuck down to give more texture to my layers



I then sprayed all my Couture Creations Paper Flowers using the Pink Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment Spray I made up previously
I also did a little swish and flick with the spray nozzle to add some splatters to my background




I finished off my layout by arranging my flowers and adding a Framed Metal Trinket and a sprinkling of 3mm Pearls



I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and you can see that you can create beautiful layouts without taking hours.

Father of the Bride | Artdeco Creations

#kerriegurney #artdecocreations #ultimatecrafts


Hi Everyone,
Kerrie here with a layout I created using the soon to be released
Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Collection.
The papers in this collection are gorgeous as are all the dies, embossing folders, stamps, stencils and embellishments for the collection. I am so very excited to be creating using it.


I love this photo of my eldest brother with his eldest daughter on her wedding day, he was bursting with  pride that day. When he walked her down the aisle well lets just say there wasn't a dry eye on my side of the family ♥


I started off by mixing up some shimmer spray using Couture Creations Anna Griffin Green Pigment
 mix with warm water and give a good shake to mix the powder


Next I places the Leaves in the Canopy Stencil onto a piece of green L'Aquarella paper and gave the whole piece a light misting


 You can see the shimmer it adds to the patterned paper

This photo is not the best but you can see the slight shimmer and pattern on the paper


I set the page aside to dry and cut my layers and diecuts ready to assemble my layout



here are some close ups of my clusters
