Layouts for my Mum and Dad

Good Evening All,

I have two layouts to show you today. I've done them together because they are of my Mum and Dad, and although different paper lines, the photos were both from Christmas time and are to my mind a set.
Here's the first one, using Blue Fern Studio's Vintage Christmas.


I do like using a little mixed media on my layouts and these two layouts have both had a little splattering ! Underneath the paper layering, of all Vintage Christmas papers, I have stamped snowflakes and holly. I also did a little texture paste masking and then a good old splatting of gold metallic paint and gesso. My Christmas themed chippie embellishments were painted in the gold metallic paint as well. Flowers and Holly springs were from my stash.

And now for layout number two..



 This layout is done on background paper Heartfelt Creations 'Countryside Evenings'. The dotty paper used for layering is a Prima paper.  I do find layouts without flowers very difficult, but I was determined to do a masculine layout and keep to my brief of not needing a flower ! So my mixed media on this layout started with a lot of masking. Three layers of three different masks using distress inks and texture paste. Then some stamping with coffee archival ink. Some of my Dusty Attic chippie cogs were painted in a grey chalk paint and this was also used on the paper edges, wood banners and my alpha's. The other cogs were painted in gold metallic paint. I then used both paints again for a good old splatting !! My verse is a Kaisercraft  rub on.
