Cupcakes, Printers Trays , and a layout

Hello lovely crafters! I'm here today to share 3 projects with you, that I absolutely loved creating! I do have tutorials on 2 of the projects (cupcakes , layout)  if you want to check them out :)
The cupcake stand and layout were part of my submissions to the final round of the G45 dt call, fingers crossed! I hope you all like them :)
First up... cupcake stand with paper cupcakes :)
Each cupcake opens up to a mini album inside.

 All of my alphas were colored with Before Dawn Shimmerz Sprays.
 Most of the cupcake toppers were imaginarium chippies, they really added that finishing touch!
The penny farthing was painted with gesso, the heart was painted with gesso then embossed with blue embossing powder. The butterfly was colored with 3 different chalk edger inks.

 can't live without my alpha chippies!

 I LOVED creating this venetian mask! I took my chippies and just cut them apart to suit my needs. I love how it turned out! the bottom chippies were colored with Before Dawn Shimmerz and then liquid pearls were added. The tops were painted with gesso , then added liquid pearls.
You can see how to create your own cupcakes at the end of this Video.

Second project... Altered Printers Tray
I LOVE doing these trays! Imaginarium chippies and Prima Lyric were so perfect together!
 My shutters were gessoed, then inked 2 shades of pink. I then used some lace to make the "screen" on them.
 The "Beauty" chippie was colored with 2 shades of Ingvild Bolme chalk edgers.
I used the oval frame to set the cameo, and just inked it pink.
 I colored the butterfly with 3 diff shades of Ingvild Bolme chalk edgers. The flourish was painted with about 5 coats of gesso, then inked with black soot distress ink on the edges.


And lastly... my mixed media layout.
My 4th project for the G45 final round.

For my sentiment I broke it in half, and painted them pink and then stamped with varying G45 stamps.
 My hexagon pieces were gessoed, then inked with black soot. And when I did my spraying/painting I went in with diff colors on them.

 The honeycomb negative was also painted pink, then stamped with varying G45 stamps.
 I placed the rest of my sentiment here and it has the same treatment as the other half.
