Happiness - Ezmé Hartman

Hit: 508

The super amazing Ezmé from Creatives at Play has once again wowed us with a FABULOUS single layout using fun techniques and several must-have products available from Scrapbook Studio ONLINE and IN STORE

Hi there Creatives!
A few of my girlfriends and I recently went for breakfast at Hazendal Wine Estate and spontaneously took some photographs. This donkey made from stones was so beautiful, just looking at this beautiful stone creation made me happy!
I created a mixed media single page layout with papers from 49 and Market, the Rusty Autumn Collection and lots of Tim Holtz products, all picked up from The Scrapbook Studio the last time I was in Jeffreys bay.
I wanted to add more interest to the paper with layers of mixed media products.  I started by covering the page with clear Gesso and transferred old book paper with Gel Medium. Then I stencilled with embossing paste coloured with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. To create a watercolour look, I watered the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink down and randomly painted over the background paper. I also splattered with the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and Champagne Mist All Purpose Ink. 
The swirls were created with Prima's Bronze Age Metallique Wax, and a Tim Holtz stencil.
Here are a few close-up picture of my layout: 
The chipboard elements were foiled with the GoPress and Foil
The seam binding ribbon was coloured with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
Finally I added flowers and Copper Glass Glitter from Prima and Tim Holtz word stickers.
I hope you found some inspiration here. Thank you for stopping by.
Happy "Creative Play" until next time!
