Flowers and metal are of course old favourites for creating interesting and textural pages. Beautiful flowers might just take the cake as being one of the most addictive embellishments, and metals are a staple that can add just the right touch of polished finish.
We’d love to see your very own take on using flowers and metals on your projects, whether it’s a card, a Project Life-style pocket page or a traditional scrapbook layout or even a beyond the page project. Please just make sure you use Aussie Scrap Source suppliers in your projects!
Email a picture of your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note about any techniques and a rough materials lists to be in the running to win a fabulous prize pack of some of the featured products by next Sunday 15th September.
Check out some of our favourite flower and metal products and projects from some of our brands design teams below to inspire you and of course we’ll be back on Wednesday with more jaw-dropping inspiration from our own designers.
How about this beautiful altered canvas by Juliana Michaels from the Bo Bunny design team. She rightly points out that creating an altered canvas is a great way to use up leftover or extra supplies. For more details on how to create this gorgeous canvas, you can check out her blog here.
Gabrielle Pollacco from the Bo Bunny design team has created this beautiful layout with prodigious use of flowers and some of the gorgeous trinkets alongside The Avenues collection.
BasicGrey’s Metal Flair buttons give this page by BG design team member Sophie Crespy the perfect finishing touch. You can see her whole double layout on their blog here.
Gorgeous use of Ornate Metal Keys and a binder ring on the cover of this fabulous Steampunk Spells halloween album by Annette Green for Graphic45. She has created a tutorial for it which you can find here.
If you don’t want the bulk of flowers you can always fussy cut them from patterned paper as the talented Romy Veul has done here using the ‘A Ladie’s Diary’ collection from Graphic45. She has adhered them with foam tape and added pearl dots to create some depth.
Of course there are times when only the real thing will do and then you can’t go past the variety of colours and flower types that Prima offers. This breathtaking layout is by Lene Bjornerud and combines the beautiful pastel Delight collection with an utter plethora of assorted flowers. There’s even a gessoed metal key in there.. can you spot it?!
Prima Educator Limor Webber has created these three mixed media cards using Prima’s Everyday Vintage collection and there’s a comprehensive video tutorial on the Prima Channel where you can watch and create these cards alongside her.
We hope that brings you inspiration to get started on this weeks challenge! We’ll be back tomorrow with more from our design team!
