Bug Beauty with FWAB

I am one of those people who is guilty of filling my pages to bursting capacity, but this time I thought I would challenge myself to keep it simple and make FWAB products be the hero in my layout rather than just an add on.

I have had these papers for at least 4yrs hidden away in my stash, but when I saw a recent photo my daughter had taken  I knew they were begging to be pulled out and used.

Only a little paint was added to the edge of this layout and the paper itself was used as embellishments, making the FWAB products pop right of the page.


Bumble Bee and flower chipboard from Memory Maze.


First I started with Lee's Tree adding some cut out flowers with olive green and pink pearls, I also added a little piece of grass bling to the bottom of the tree.


Using  Chloe's pearls in olive green across the center of the page.



A small piece of Jasmine's hot pink puffy swirl was added into a cluster of flowers featuring a white Maddison flower and a smaller pink Elise flower.

Memory Maze DT Share

I have been enjoying creating small canvas's filled with lots of chipboard and today is no exception.

"Inspire Love Canvas"

This canvas is 30cm x 10cm 

First I started off with spraying the edges with glimmer mist then covered the front in distressed paper.

I then added a layer of tulle and a smaller piece of stitched paper, tucking in small paper off cuts under the edges. Then filled it with chipboard and Scrappers Garden flowers.

Memory Maze swirls from the wheel barrow set has been coated in a black embossing powder.

A second swirl on the other side of the canvas.

Oval Ornate chipboard frame has been painted with gesso them sprayed with glimmer mist, I then stamping a script stamp with versa mark and added black embossing powder to give it a raised pattern.

Inspire chipboard word has also been coated in black embossing powder along with a smaller Love word.

"Time 2 Ride"

I recently brought some Fluro paint and with my daughter dress being so bright I thought this was the perfect time to try them out. So I mixed some of the paint with texture paste.


Repeating the same first step as the last page but this time I used Surfing wild 2 C59 002
I then used the coloured texture paste and coloured the edge of the back paper.

Adding some wall tape that I got from the hardware and using 3 different masks I created the background with a mixture of coloured and white texture paste.

Using the Time 2 ride chipboard DC59 010 it was also coloured with texture paste and dried with a heat gun to give it a bubbly texture.

I added a tag in stripped paper to the top and a couple of other tags and flowers to finish it off.
