Hello there, Sanna here today to share a layout that is quite different to my regular style. The reason? I recently added some PanPastels to my stash and they are so fabulously soft in tone and color that I just needed to create a very pastellic, romantic kind of layout.
Here is what I did:
I took a 12×12 inch piece of white cardstock, placed the “Ripples” stencil over it and wiped some PanPastels thru the stencil onto the white cardstock surface. I used purple, yellow, green, blue and orange pastels on the background.
I then went and applied some washi tape around the edgesand layered some patterned paper on the top and bottom of the page. Next I went over these layers using a grey pastel tone and the “Sea Creatures” stencil. After that I took the “Punchinella” 6×6 inch stencil and applied some golden molding paste onto the background here and there. After that I just added little bits and pieces of chipboard and other embellishments here and there to finalize my layout. This is how the finished piece looks like:
for some close-up photos, visit my blog. Now this is a totally different kind of layout that I usually create. It has lots and lots of different layers and is full of details. I really enjoyed creating this page – from time to time one just needs to try out something new :).
How about you – when have you last created something totally outside your comfort zone?
Have fun scrapping, Sanna

Hey hey there artsy crafters Rita Barakat here! I am super excited to reveal one of my display projects for CHA using the The Crafters Workshop Harlequin Stencil for the background!
Surely you must know that The Crafters Workshop stencils work with numerous products and today after coloring my canvas with Gelatos (Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft) I also used crackle glaze and crackle paste (DecoArt) on top of the harlequin stencil.
You must lift the stencil straight up and wipe it down right away – a baby wipe comes in handy! Then set it aside to dry.
After it dries completely you can add color on top of the paste. Giving you lots of depth and texture with one stencil and of course providing a beautiful background for your art! I hope you will try this technique. I have this project and more on display at my CHA booth #19 so if you go come check it out and of course don’t forget to visit the The Crafters Workshop at booth #2632!

After the chalk ink has dried, cut out the clouds and glue each matching pair together. Don’t completely glue the clouds together yet. The idea is to make a “pouch” so start by gluing one side like this:
Then “wrap” the cloud around a light bulb and glue the other side of the cloud. I tried to glue along the edges only, again to create a pouch.
