Dream on Dreamer by Rikki G

 Good morning how are you? Rikki here with another layout using the stunning Bee the Sunshine collection and I just love it, its one of those collections that makes creating with it so effortless.

And what is better than that?

 What is your favourite, effortless collection?

You can even follow along with a process video and a step by step below to make a little shaker jar.

Dont forget to follow along with the process video.

To start the background off, use a combination of Tim Holtz Oxide - Saltwater Taffy, Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber, through the Bee Arty Lace Stencil.

Blend out the stencil with the same colours.

Add some details with the Geo Grunge stamp, dont mount the stamp on a block, this will allow it to roll and give you a random effect.

Now its about adding some water and move it around the background a bit, while its still wet add a couple of drops of the Colour Artist Dye Ink - Slipper. 

Move that around and when your happy with where it has travelled, add the next colour Citrus.

The more you move it round the more you will end up with a third colour - a custom orange.

Now to make the shaker jar. Cut the center out of the jar from the Summer Days Black and white sheet. Leave yourself enough of an edge to add foam tape and keep it hidden.

Add with glue some transparency and trim to fit the shape of the jar.

So before you rip off the backing tape from the foam mount add your mix on top of the transparency sheet, even add a little fussy cut bee into it. 

The mix below is a combination of different size glitters, micro beads and small art stones. 

The combinations are endless.

Peel the backing off the foam tape and stick to a piece of pattern paper to seal all the glitter in the jar.

Hello & Happy Birthday Lovely... by Charmane Koch

 Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you a layout I have created using some of the NEW Raspberry Fizz Collection! This Garden Fence paper would definitely be my favourite paper from this Collection - and I need more of it! Love the florals - so pretty!

I know the page looks quite busy, but I do love how it somehow all works well together - and happy to be creating a multi photo layout too!

How perfect is the "Happy Birthday" from the "Let's Party" paper?

I also stamped the Spring Flowers onto the White Pickets paper, then cut them out.

I am in love with this Forest Favourites Die at the moment - I've been cutting a few out using different papers & you will see them on a few layouts I have been creating lately - I think it matches well with the Raspberry Fizz Collection too! I've added a Flair that I grabbed at Retreat - you can find Assorted Flairs HERE!

And here is another closeup where I've overlapped another of the Spring Flowers stamps on top of the Charms Creations Big Love Hessian Heart. I have also used a Word Sheet cut apart  - did you notice?

Here are the Bee Arty goodies I have used:

Hope I've inspired you to get out that Raspberry Fizz Collection if you haven't already!
Happy Creating everyone!

Sweet Vibes - Rikki G

Good evening how are you all? Rikki here on this fine Sunday to share with you my latest creation for Bee Arty and this is for this months current challenge either a moodboard or the sketch or like myself... why not combine the two?

Heres my take in the challenge, you still have plenty time to enter and win !!!

Want to see how it was created? Follow along with a process video.

To start off use a stencil like the Honeycomb Spray Stencil.... to build up the colour in the background I used Tim Holtz Oxide - Pickled Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo.

Stamp Find Your Way to the left hand side of the page with an archival ink.

Follow this up with stamping the right hand side with the Geo Grunge - the one with the Bee, set this aside for layer on.

Now its all about adding your pattern paper layers and to soften you can add some vellum as your last layer.

Add some fussy cut elements from Sunny Days 12x12 Paper.

Add photos and title.

Now with the Geo Grunge Stamp - stamp though out the background randomly, if you keep your stamp unmounting it will help with the random effect.

Now its time to get messy with Colour Artist Dye - Slipper, Citrus, and Spiced.

Flick over the background and dilute in places with water. 

Dont forget to cover your photo.

To finish off use Shimmer Spray - Bling with a brush flick and let it run like honey.....

So why dont you join us in this challenge, just follow the link:
