This weeks theme is Borders

This Week I have decided to create another Memory box - I just love the concept of these, I think they are brilliant!! I have used flowers this time - so out came some glitter, inks, wire and beads!!

I have used FL02 Flowers, BD10 Picket fence, CH08 Flower corner and of course a Memory box KT43 6x6. I used some Liquid Acrylic pearlescent ink to colour the chipboard - on the fence I heated it so it bubbled and on the flowers I added some ultra fine glitter and some gem stones. I also used some wire so I can hang this piece.

Cheers, Trizzy

Natalie Wolfe has created this lovely layout for us this week!!

This is what Natalie used and has to say about her layout:

BD05 Scallop Border
CH338 Do Hicky 4
WT36 Create / Family / Remember Word Sheet
HS04 Elegant Hearts

To colour the scalloped border I have first painted it with white gesso. Once the gesso was dry, I wiped over the border very lightly with a little Pewter Blue JW Metallic Wax on my finger. The Do Hicky is also painted first with white gesso and then painted with Snickerdoodle Smooch Ink.

I will be talking more about colouring with Smooch Inks in my Wednesday night Technique Post.

Gina has made a really cool card this week to share with us

Using BD05 Border Scallop (extra piece once scallop is removed) and MI05 Mini Dragonflies
These have simply been inked..

Thanks Gina!

Beautiful layouts using borders by Natalie May

With such beautiful photos, Natalie has created an amazing layout!!

This is what Natalie used: CH335--Do-Hicky, gave it a coat of Chalk Glimmermist! and also used a word from WT06--miracle/perfect/wonder word trio, painted it in Glimmermist then used Distress Crackle Paint.

This layout was also made by Natalie May - its just gorgeous!! I love the colours of the ocean always makes for great photos!!

Natalie said: "This page of my cousins twins was perfect for the BD16 Starfish Border. I used Perfect Pearls for the finish!"

Both layouts are really beautiful, thanks Natalie!
