Peace on Earth Scrapbook Layout

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a 12 x 12 mixed media page. I have used some beautiful Christmas papers to surround an old photo of my husband and niece. She’s hitting him over the head with a foam bat. He’s pretending to be in pain, hahaha!  You can see my father-in-law in the background.


Supplies Used:


To make this page I put the photo on white cardstock, added layers of Paper House paper, and finally a piece of foam core board. I sponged on gesso, stenciled on texture paste, and poured on crackle paint.  I let the crackle dry overnight.


I added gauze and gesso around the photo, then layered on glass glitter and mica flakes. I coated it all with more gesso, then started painting. I used a few shades of green and brown watercolors and mists.


I put on some flowers, a few painted die cut leaves, metal, bling, green micro beads, and pearls. I made the dark edges on the layers under the photos with a watercolor pencil.


You can see I used gold mica powder underneath the photo.  Whenever I used paint or heat to dry things, I protected the photo with a piece of paper.

Thanks so much for looking, and have a great week!


2016 Tree Layout

Its Christmas Time!! I love this time of year! There’s just something about sipping hot chocolate, warm blankets watching heartwarming Christmas movies, and tree lights blinking in the dark. Today I am going to share a layout about my Christmas tree.


Supplies Used:
Merry and Bright Sculpted Sticker
Peace Love Home 12″ Double Sided Glitter Scrapbook Paper
Snowflakes 12″ Acetate Paper
Winter Wonderland 3D sticker


Its so fun to cut into these papers.  Here you see I used the Acetate Snowflake Sheet and cut up a few snowflakes to use as embellishments. Makes the Perfect background to used with the beautiful background sheet of Pattern paper that I choose.


Here I used sticker embellishments to finish off the tree theme. I layered some of the stickers together to get the affect I was looking for. Hope everyone creates holiday memories decorating your house too!

Happy Holidays!!
