May Layouts by Jessica

"Happiness is Homemade"

Hello friends!  My first layout for the month uses the Homespun Collection.


Using the Homemade paper for my background and Home Sweet Home for matting, I used the printed chipboard under the picture and as my title.  I used Glass seedlings and Army Dust glitter along with the Crackle Texture Stamp with green mists to create the background.


To the left of the picture you will see the the heart from the XOXO Title chipboard primed with gesso then painted in 2 different colors of pink mists.  The lily on this side is from the Harvest Lillies set.


To the right of the page, you can see a piece of the Wanderlust Vine Set and flower from the Dark Tropic Lillies Set.  I used a piece of Lace #12 to decorate the bottom.

My next layout is pretty basic.  The background paper is Tweet Melody from the Amber & Apricot Collection.


I took four metal embellishments from my stash and painted them with black gesso.  Then I embossed them with Pearl embossing powder.  While the Pearl was still hot, I sprinkled Baby Pink embossing powder over it in spots to melt them together.  While they were still hot, I sprinkled some Petunia glitter over the embellishments.  For the background, I used a stencil with matte gel and Beating Heart seedlings.  You will also see the Tattered Newsprint stamping and the vertical stamping with one of the Distressed Titles stamps.


The Honey Comb Bits chipboard were embossed with Baby Pink and Coral embossing powder.


The pink lily is from the Harvest Lillies set and the little white bloom is from the Apricot Blooms set.

"Sweet and Happy"

My last project features the Remnants Collection.  The background paper is Devonshire, and I also used Bloomsbury paper and Mini Remnants paper pieces for my background work under the mists.  To make the tag under the photo, I used the Bloomsbury paper with the Tattered Newsprint Stamp.


All of the chipboard on this page is the Remnants Printed Chipboard.  Some of them I even used with gesso to create part of the background and adhered it to the paper with matte gel.  The title pieces are also part of the Printed Chipboard Pieces set with glossy adhesive medium applied to the tops.


The lilies are part of the Harvest Lillies set.


The frame behind the picture is actually from the Printed Chipboard pieces.  I embossed it with Green Ivory embossing powder and sprinkled some Dark Chocolate embossing powder on top while it was still hot.  I randomly applied Burgundy seedlings in spots around the picture.
