"Today's Favourite" by Tina Ollett

A very warm welcome back! So glad to see you here. Today's Favourite is my first share for this month using gorgeous muted tones of pinks and greys to celebrate a very cute and memorable photo of my two girls at a family gathering. 

I have followed the Maja Design's moodboard for this month which is really pretty and of course I have gone with the soft muted pinks and greys. And to combine this together I have used Shimmerz Paints gorgeous Creameez in Cheeky Pink and Twinkle Twinkle. I love my Creameez. They are perfect for my shabby chic projects and add that softness and shimmer to really help the layout pop.

I did some tearing of my Maja papers and layered them and primed all the layers with a clear gesso. I added in some texture using a loaded pallette knife of Salt of the Earth Paste-eez through a Dusty Attic damask stencil. What I love to do with the Paste-eez is to heat set it while it is still wet. This gives the Paste-eez a more raised effect.  

You can see the effect of the heat set Paste-eez above and below. Over the top of the Paste-eez texture I add some Creameez in the Cheeky Pink. I loaded it over the top and then spritzed it with more water and let it run over the texture and background paper. 

Once this was dried I then added in some stamping in black. I used some script stamps and bricks. 

Following on I have inked the skeleton clockface chipboard and title with a black ink. I dried it off and added over randomly some white gesso and then loaded my brush up with the Creameez Twinkle Twinkle and swiped it over the chippies and then heat set these.

My other chipboards were primed with white gesso and also dressed in the Creameez Twinkle Twinkle. Really gives the page a sparkly effect which unforunately you can't really see in these photos.

I have also added in some white pearls and changed them to the Cheeky Pink in the Creameez. Again I did this by loading my brush and wiping it over the pearl and heat setting it immediately. I do this a few times until the colour is built up on the pearl. This is a very good technique to use when you may not have the right colour.

Well that is all for me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.
Until next time take care and happy scrapping.
