Father & Son Layout Using Azealian Papers

Father and Son layout made using Azealian papers by Papericious - Handmade by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
Hello everyone!
Erum here with you today.
I have another LO to share with you using the Azealian papers.
I thought I'd focus on the themed chipboard called Gentleman this time therefore used my brother and his son's photo for my LO.

I started with watercolour paper as my base. Added a very diluted black and yellow distress stain as my watercolour. After it was dry, I added black splatters.
I placed all my main elements to know where I should add more watercolour and splatters. Even after adding watercolour, my background was lacking something so I stamped some horizontal stripes, stars and dotted border using Altenew's Basic Borders stamp set.

I stamped more sentiments on to the background that went with the look and theme.
These stamps are from Kaisercraft. The numerical background stamp is by Hero Arts.
After I was done building my background, I started to add my layers on to foam tape.
Also, the glossy hexagons you see in the above photo are the negatives that I used from the Honeycomb Collage chipboard element.

I inked all my chippies using distress stains. For the Gears chippies, I added silver heat embossing on some parts to give it a gritty look.

I used the same technique on Honeycomb Collage chippies as well.
You can see I left one negative piece intact and added glossy accent on it, just to add a bit of interest.

I hope you liked my layout. I only used three types of chippies and four designs of papers to build my LO.
I am having tons of fun making these!
That is all for today. If you have any questions please feel free to ask in the comments.

Fabric Flowers tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last July post made for Papericious blog.
Irit from Irit Shalom's Designs is here today and 
this time I was asked  to make a tutorial using Papericious most gorgeous fabric flowers from the last release.
So as all of us already made Mixed Media pieces and scrapbooking layouts and cards with these flowers I decided to make an altered necklace and it's a real wearable art piece.

And as always I made a small (really small this time) tutorial how to create this necklace.

1. Paint a few pieces of Papericious chipboard with Papericious Black Heavy gesso and let them dry.

2.Use proper adhesive and add black and gold embossing powder over the black painted chipboards.
I used the old products that I have in my stash, but any embossing powder adhesive (clear inks etc) and any mix of black and gold powders will do the job.

3.Mist the fabric Papericious flowers with black mist and let them dry.The big black flower was originally hot pink one.

4.Add Papericious Crystal Clear glitter using Glossy Accents over the black flowers.

5. Arrange the necklace using the heat embossed chipboard pieces, misted and white flowers and some Papericious lace and gold jewelry findings from your stash.
To be sure that this piece is wearable I added a thick layer of clear resin over the back of painted and heat embossed chipboards.This step takes a lot of time because of the very long drying time, but it's totally " must to do" step if you leave in the hot country like mine.

And another look at the finished necklace:

Hope you liked my small and easy tutorial and would try this project by your own.

Card with spinner inside - Tutorial

Hello my friends
Here is Diana once again

Today I will show you a Tutorial of how to make a card with spinner inside
Here you can see the elements I used on the cover of the card. The paper pack I used is Azealian
The CS base is 12,5 cm x 30,2 cm. I scored at 15,1 cm to fold in the middle.
As you can see I embossed Sigma cardstock and started to build composition.

I love the chipboards (flourish)and (Leaves) and the variety of how to use it. This time I painted with black gesso and put some Crystal clear glitter.

 The final result of the cover
On the flowers I used Frosting powder. Wow... that gives such a unique effect. 
Now let's start with the main part which is the spinner inside. 
The CS inside that holds the spinner is the side of 27 cm x 12 cm. 
Score at the long part at 2 cm, 7, 5 cm, 13 cm.
The score line 7,5 cm is the middle part of the spinner. As shown on the photo there I glued the thread with the embellishment. I cut the flowers from the die cut page of the Indie chic. So many nice die cuts there. And 2 different text : make a wish and  life is good from TH stickers.

When that was made I glued and folded together.

When I was done with the spinner I glued the whole part to the inside part of the card. Now it is only to decorate the inside parts

Here is the short Video

 Hope you liked it
Hugs, DT Diana

Monochromatic wedding layout inspiration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Papericious inspiration .
This is Irit from Irit Shalom Designs here today and I am going to show you my new wedding layout made with most gorgeous modern and graphic Azealian new collection.

This is my dear daughter wedding photo from last September and it was made in black and white.
So for this photo  blues and a bit of yellow gold were added to make it shine, but still the photo is the main issue of this project.
Backround cardstock was covered with some small stencils with texture paste and then painted with  white gesso, so the black is seen as grey now.
More splashes were made with another stencil under the photo.

I hand cut  cardstock patterns such as triangles and waved strips and added them vertically over the page.
 Chipboards and paper cut " story" were used to make the visual triangle around the photos.
Each chipboard was painted with black gesso only.
And as the last move to connect the all elements I made the crackle paste frame over the photo and when dry misted the whole page with yellow and light blue sprays.
