Another favourite amongst the design team and others - the 4 products, 4 ways challenge. This month we invited the talented Alison Shearer to join in and just love what she's made of this combination. The products were:
Deja Views - Sharon Ann 'Timeless' Collection
cherryArte Chipboard Shapes
BasicGrey Chipboard Monograms
We R Memory Keepers Foil Felt Glitter
We invited Alison Shearer to play in this 'four products' challenge, and she came up with two gorgeous layouts, this one and 'the rocks'. Alison writes: 'I love this photo of my daughter - reading and having her favourite drink - peach iced tea!.
'The felt adhesive rub ons were so easy and so much fun to use plus great to touch too. I inked the cherryArte chipboard and BG mini monograms to match the tone of the papers - it's easy to alter these any way you like.'
The earthy, vintage look of these Sharon Ann papers was perfect for these photos of The Rocks - one of the most historical places in Australia.
The Cherry Arte chipboard was a snap to ink so it could be matched to the overall look of the Lo and the glitter adhesive rub ons added a bright, fun touch which lifted the Lo overall.
Carole Janson loved the both blues and reds in the patterned papers, and says that the We R Memory Keepers Foil Glitter and Flock Adhesive Rub On kit really made the colours stand out.
She shares some details about her layout:
For the Transparency Flower:
This was using the We R Memory Foil Glitter and Flock Rub on kit, I used acetate and the Red Flock from the kit, and what a great effect by just rubbing the sticky rub onto the acetate first, and then rubbing the flock over the top, really easy. I cut the acetate out and then used Foam mounting tape for added dimension.
For the Butterfly and Chipboard Tags:
This is the effect of the glitter and the flock from the We R Memory Keepers Foil Glitter Flock Rub ons, I put the flock flowers onto the cherryArte Chipboard labels and then I also used the glitter pack by again rubbing the butterfly sticky onto the acetate, and then rubbing the glitter pack over the top, again cut it out, bent up the wings and used Foam tape to mount it up onto the chipboard label. The blue glitter is really vibrant, and very pretty.
For the Title:
I painted the BasicGrey Mini Monograms (Undressed) with red paint, and then using the We R Memory Keepers Foil Glitter Flock rubbed the sticky star flowers onto the alphas and then I used the white flock, it really went onto the paint well, and I also used the glitter on the round cherryArte Chipboard label, in the title.
Glitter on layout background:
Here I applied the We R Memory Keepers Foil Glitter Flock onto the background of my layout, I picked the swirl sticky rub on, and then over the top I used the blue glitter, I also used it in the cross stitching, which was also a sticky rub on and then I used the white flock. This product really gives your layout dimension, and it is so easy to use.
How gorgeous are these products! Simple tearing and layering of the paper and a corner cluster of chipboard products along with the We R Memory Keepers flocked rubons are all this LO needed. The BasicGrey chipboard alphas were spritzed with Glimmermist to add some shine. Jaimie also outlined the flocked We R Memory flourishes with black biro to make them pop from the page.
Tip: if the colours of your photo aren't quite a match to your product try a photo action like Perfect pastel to tone down photo colours.
Suz went for the browns and blues in these very versatile Deja Views range of patterned papers. The soft patterns worked beautifully as a subtly patterned and textured background, keeping this very cute photograph the focal point. She used both the foiling and the flocking from the We R Memory Keepers Rubons, and adding them to the ribbons (also We R Memory Keepers - White Out Explore) and the corrugated alphas from Deja Views created a very tactile range of textures.
