Karen & Lady Grace ....

Hello Everyone

Today I have some  sweet layouts to share with you.
The design team always send me the most amazing layouts and it is such a thrill getting these projetcs in our inbox.

I have chosen some lovely layouts in pastel colours to show off to you today.
First up is one from Lady Grace.
Lady Grace's layout is so soft and pretty, she has used a white background and added colours in splotches of inks and cut elements.

I love the way she has placed her photo and elements together and it is a beautiful photo.

"To get a full coating of white paint, I simply dipped the chipboards directly to my gesso container. The effect is so beautiful. The chipboard will look as if it was made of clay because of the thickness of the coating. Allow it to dry for a few hours".
Gesso is one of the easiest ways to get your chipboard white. You can paint it on or as Lady Graces says dip your chipboard into it. I use my gesso in a spray can, this is one of the easiest and least messy ways to do it.

Next up is a sweetlayout from Karen, and isn't it beautiful.
Karen is a master at layouts and I love the one she has to share today.


Just look at all the beautiful pieces she has chosen to put on her page. The colours look amazing together

Karen has painted her chipboard and randomly dabbed them with another colour over the top.
The effect is fabulous and so very pretty.
