Hello iCraft and Debs Palette Friends!
Today, I am on the blog to share with you a layout of my daughter that I love. It was constructed on a round MDF placemat that I hope is now pleased it will get noticed more than if a plate sat on it!
As usual, I used the iCraft heavy white gesso to coat the base and all the Wooden Embellishments. I also used a variety of iCraft Chalk paint (all elements are listed at the end of this post) to paint them up.. I used crackle medium on the window frame and shutters after sponging with white gesso and re-applying paint after it all dried. Then watched it all crack like magic. I used a craft knife to remove the “Support Beam” from the middle of the frame. I then assembled the frame with the photo in between the layers.
I applied texture paste through the iCraft Layering stencil i0865 in certain spots on the round base, then applied some embossing powder over the top and shook off the excess. I let it dry for 10 minutes then hit it with a heat gun to set the embossing powder.
After that I watered down some Marine Blue chalk paint and used a soft brush and lots of 18 water to spread it around the base then dried it with a heat gun. I glued down all the painted wooden elements and arranged the flowers including some iCraft Yellow Shaded Roses around this, with some Silver Pearl string woven through. Gloss was applied to the caption and glued to the frame to finish off.
I hope you enjoyed my non- traditional layout in this blog 21 post. Looking forward to seeing you all later this month!

iCraft Metallic Paints used:
Using lots of lovely iCraft products like their dreamy metallic paints, wooden embellishments and stencils to create this altered Trinket box. Head over to the iCraftAustralia Blog to see how this project developed.
"And so the adventure begins" is a very fitting title to use on my very first project on this new design team adventure for iCraft Australia. This art journal page was a lot of fun to make as I had been given a whole bunch of new products to play with, who wouldn't like that?
This page was created with lots of iCraft chalk paint and a Layering stencil (iCraft supplies used are listed and linked at the bottom of this blog post) and a few background stamps, a collage butterfly element and a sentiment sticker from my stash to finish it off.
To finish off, I fussy cut a butterfly collage element and glued it on with a sentiment sticker. I also used a white gel pen to add highlights to the circles and outline the sentiment to make it stand out more.
I hope this Art Journal page inspires you to get out your paints and stencils and start journaling or just to have a play! Much thanks for looking at my project.
All the products from iCraft that were used in this project are listed below.
I have been loving working on Tracy Scott lace cut books but been wanting to make my own. I'm not always patient so thought to get out my Brother Scan n Cut machine. Sometimes, this leads me off on a whole other tangent, a common crafting problem I think! I have a slight addiction to stencils as well so I wanted to see if I could make my own. Some of this exercise was a success and some not but the learning journey for me is the important part. A bit more practice with bridging certain sections and clarifying my lines and hopefully I'll get there. The ultimate dream is to one day be able to design and produce my own line of stencils and other products. In the mean time? Back to the drawing board.
