January projects by Annie Samson

Hi everyone, 

I am very honored and excited to be a part of this fabulous team and share my first projects whit you.

First, let me introduce myself !

I am 39 years old and I live in the French province of Quebec in Canada. My daughter who is now 19 years old,  is the inspiration for almost all my layouts. I love to create texture and add mediums to my layouts.  Flowers and chipboard are also 2 of my most preferred ornaments.

You can find me on:

For my first layout, Sparkles,  I used the back of the Noel paper in the Vintage Christmas collection.

I  added a little bit of texture with modeling past and added a very light beige color with acrylic paint.

I used the Swirly CircleShabby Flake, Frosty Flake and Winter Forest chipboard to create a winter scene.

I have embossed my snow flake with Antique Gold, my deer with Mushroom, the trees with Forest and my swirl with Ruby embossing powders.

And I added some flowers from Attic Charm Glitter Roses and Late Winter Lilies to complete the winter scene.

For my second and third layouts, I used the Heartland collection.

For this layout, I have used the back of the Kiss Kiss paper.  I added some texture with modeling paste and some color with distress spray ink.

I have used the Raspberry embossing powder to emboss my 2 chipboard pieces: the title Just the 2 of Us and Spirit of Heartland. Then I applied a thin coat of gesso on my chipboard.

I added flowers from Attic Charm Glitter RosesHeartland BlossomsHeartland Roses and Blossoms and Late Winter Lilies collections.

Then I added a heart from Frilly Heart chipboard kit stamped in green with the Brocade Texture stamp.

For my last layout, I used the back of the Love Bloom paper. Because I love texture, I added modeling paste through a stencil and added a little bit of pink color with ink.

I choose to paint my Turkish Bits, Together is the Best Place to Be and one piece of the Graduated Squares chipboard with with acrylic paint. Then I used some brown and blue ink to add color to my chipboard. I wanted to keep them soft because the main paper and the flowers are very colored.

I used the flowers from the Heartland Blossoms and Heartland Roses and Blossoms to decorate my layout.
