How to create Rinea foiled accents on a layout

Create amazing elements for your scrapbook layout using the range of Rinea foils, Memento inks, and a layered stencil set. Combined with inked backgrounds you can create a feast of color and shine.
Step 1
Blend Toffee Crunch Memento ink through the first layer of a stencil set onto smooth white cardstock.
Step 2
Then blend Peanut Brittle Memento Luxe through the second layer of the stencil to bring out some more of the details.
Step 4
Remove the stencil to reveal the blended background. And repeat with different color hues to create more variety. I repeated this process with pink.
Step 5
Die-cut the stenciled background using a die-cut machine or hand-cut some letters.
Step 6
Back a sheet of Rinea foil with double-sided tape. Then die-cut some leaves out of the foil.
Step 7
Assemble your layout by adhering the die-cut letters, then add your photo. Create a cluster using your foil leaves and cut out elements.

Memento Dew Drop Backgrounds for cards

One of my favourite techniques is simply plain inking a background, and admittedly with all the amazing products and must-haves on the market it is one of the things we do less and less. It was time to dust off the amazing little inks and make some magic with blending backgrounds.

I used my Memento Dew Drop ink pads and blended through some Celebr8 Stencils to create 3 magical cards. It is that simple. I combined the 2 colours by first blending the one colour and then the second colour for a stunning effect. Remember to overlap your ink colours when blending for a seamless effect running into each other.

I use small circular movements to pick up my ink and to blend, to get a streak-free perfect effect.
To complete my cards, I added some simple stamped sentiments in black, a few pearls and diamante as decorations and paint splats for that fun messy effect.
These quick cards are gorgeous and as a bonus I used everything I had on hand, using ink colours that I don’t always use, and stencils that haven’t been used in a while. And a stamp set that I love but haven’t used nearly enough.

Seize the Day Art Journaling Page

We have finally gotten some of the amazing AALL& Create stamps and products in South Africa and I am loving them. For art journaling last month we used this amazing stamp set along with some Liquid Acrylics from Prima and Concentrated Watercolours. Together these products make for an amazing end result.

I grew up with art around me, and more specifically watercolour paint. And that is where my love for the imperfect comes from – the possibilities and the opportunities that if offers are endless. And best of all it can be perfect if you want it to be.
For the tag we used good old black spray paint and sprayed over a stencil. Once the spray paint was dry, we used the Liquid Acrylics mixed with water to add colour to the open white spaces. A cool effect. The tag was trimmed shorter and adhere to the bottom of our pages for a fun effect.
Look how amazing all these inks work together. And as always my go-to stamping ink used is VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. Perfect for adding inks and paints over it without smudging.

And finishing it off with some black dot stenciling and white gel pen details.
Such a simple but effective page with beautiful end results.
Until next time happy painting!
