Hi everyone! My first layout I want to share with you this August features the Tattered Walls Collection and I included a video tutorial that you can find below.
The main background paper is "The Reading Room" and I added a strip of "The Garage" paper.
The Our Story chipboard was first given a coat of gesso, then painted with white acrylic paint. Next I embossed the whole title with Pearl embossing powder. Then using the Super Grunge stamp, I embossed the title with Ivory embossing powder. I love the effect! The Bits of Honey chipboard pieces were embossed with Fern embossing powder.
The red rose buds are actually from the Homespun Blooms flowers that I took apart and made into rose buds (you can see it in my tutorial). The rest of the flowers on the page are from the Homespun Blossoms collection and look really nice with the colors in the picture. Below the flower you are able to see the Green Ivory embossing powder that I used with the Crackle Textures stamp. You can also see the Marine glitter on the flowers and Lemonade Seedlings that I added around the flowered areas and other spots around the picture.
In this picture you can see more details and see the Tattered Newsprint stamping that I did around the picture.
The Tattered Walls Ephemera was a nice touch to accent the areas around my picture.
And now, here is the video tutorial I created. I hope you find it helpful and fun. :-)

My second layout for August also features the Tattered Walls collection. My background paper is "The Maid's Room" from the Tattered Walls Collection. I wanted to use the colors blue, red, and yellow so I chose blue as the dominant color, red is the secondary color, then tiny bits of golden yellow as accents. On three small areas on the background, I used matte gel and a soft floral stencil, then sprinkled some Beating Heart seedlings and some Blue Ice glitter over top.
The title chipboard Love This Moment was first embossed with Azul embossing powder. Then I embossed over it with Pearl embossing powder. This seemed to soften the sparkles from the Azul embossing powder. On this side of the picture, the white flower is from the Christmas Blooms set. I created the two red rose buds on this page by separating the pieces of one of the Homespun Blooms and folding them into place. I did the same thing with the off-white Chesterville Florals flower to make some rose buds.
In this picture you can see more of the Beating Heart seedlings surrounding some tiny accent flowers I had from my stash. The oval frame chipboard piece under my picture was cut in half (to fit the size of my picture) and embossed with Azul embossing powder. The Gold Nugget seedlings add the touch of golden yellow that I wanted for the layout.
I used the Journaling Cards stamps on watercolor paper and embossed them with Azul Embossing Powder (and added the bits of Gold Nugget Seedlings). The Card to the left of the picture has a piece of Tattered Walls Ephemera under it for dimension.
The two off-white flowers are both part of the Chesterville Florals set. The red rose bud was made from one of the Homespun Blooms. And the blue flower is from the Dark Tropic Lilies set.
