'Cam' Layout - My Debut Post at Lindy's Stamp Gang {Prima BAP}




I have my first post up on the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog!
Exciting or WHAT?!?  Definitely one of the highlights
of my scrapbooking journey to date!!  You can see the
the post on the LSG blog HERE.


I used the current Prima BAP {sketch} to direct my
 design. LOVED it - perfect for me - nice & messy!


I really love how my page turned out - these mists are just 
incredible & I now have a studio overflowing with them!


I used the new collection of Mad Hatter Mists & Embossing 
Powders - so colourful & outlandish - I really love them!


I went to town on the misting & embossing & have tons
of different techniques going on on this page...


I used Tweedle Dee Denim Flat Fabio Mist as well as I’m Late I’m Late Slate Flat Fabio MistDown the Rabbit Hole Starburts Toto’s Tornado Black Flat Fabios on my background, then I also used Queen of Hearts Red Flat Fabios & Teapot Purple Starbursts for my ombre photo matting {together with Tweedle Dee Denim again as well}!

I also used various embossing pastes such as Candy Cane Red,which I sprinkled randomly onto my page {see the top left hand corner as well as on the Ranger Pop Dots Negative Foam below my photo matting}.

I also used the Midnight Sapphire Embossing Powder plus heaps of  the Magic Moon Pearls Embossing Powder sprinkled into wet gesso on a large area of my page. It adds a brilliant shine & sparkle to the white of my page – absolute. L.O.V.E….!!!
