Life is Wonderful with Made With Love

Hello friends, how are you?

The June holidays are in full swing and I hope the kiddos are having fun enjoying their break from school. For mummies and daddies, this means no more waking up early to send the kids to school, and vacay, vacay, vacay! Looking at all the vacation photos on my Facebook newsfeed, I can't wait for our family holiday to quickly come. But first, today's share for my LSS!

This one had me dumbfounded for awhile because I don't want to create a layout, and I didn't have enough time for a mini-album. I had run out of small canvases and I was just standing like a fool in my scrap-room pulling out drawers and hoping to find inspiration in there. And lo and behold, I spied these wooden resin holders from Prima which I had kept aside until I had found a purpose for them. And they came to my rescue!

This is a home display piece I created from one such wood resin holder. I might have mentioned before I love wood grain texture so this was a pleasure to work with. I first primed the whole piece with gesso so that the acrylic paint would not soak into the wood and become un-usable. I had gone for the Tiffany Blue look with the Art Alchemy Light Patina Metallic Acrylic paint. The metallic sheen is quite subtle here, but under the light it's just gorgeous.

More details in the close-ups:

Mixing and matching different Blue Fern Studios paper collections, something I havn't actually done before despite having so much of their papers at home! Here's a butterfly fussy-cut out from the Tranquility collection. I had dabbed some Sticklers on it for a shimmer.

A Dangle chipboard from Blue Fern Studios. I had first painted it with Steampunk Copper acrylic paint and sealed it with Rock Candy distress crackle paint for a really vintage look.

Lots of fussy-cut elements from Courtship Lane and Attic Charm papers, both from Blue Fern Studios. The title piece is from Kaisercraft's ephemera pack.

So I managed to get myself a woodgrain stencil (yes!) and although there wasn't a lot of space here to see it clearly, it's right there on the side of the wooden box.

A piece of Blue Fern chipboard (Layering Stem) peeking out from the side. I had painted it green with Tattered Angels Fairway and covered it with a layer of Iridescent Gold.

And that's all I have for you today. The supplies are all available from the Made With Love store at 313 Somerset B2, and here's the list below:
