Love you, sister - a layout by Riikka

Hiya, it's Riikka here to share a peachy layout with you with a lot of golden accents. The warm and sweet palette seemed just the thing for this page. 
I'm the only child and naturally I wished for a sister or sibling when I was little. My two daughters are less than two years apart and they seem most of the time almost inseparable. As my older one is drawing nearer to teens, she requires more personal space than before, but usually then play together and even read together. 

I started doing the layout from the background upwards and like so often, started by adding mediums to the background and transforming it to something of my own. Please see the step by step tutorial below, should you want to know how I made the layout.

Step 1. I started the page with a glue pen and golden foil. As the foil sticks to anything sticky, I added the glue pen here and there in the background and then pushed the foil on top. The outcome is vintage looking, almost like aged gilding or old wallpa…

Pretty In Pink by Jaine

Two things I'm starting to embrace as I get older are sparkles and the colour pink. My style was definitely not at all sparkly and shiny and pink was not usually in my repertoire but as I get older I find my style changing and softening somewhat.

I was asked to make a new baby card recently for a girl so my pink sparkly side well and truly came out to play. I have the cutest stamp set by Pink and Main too called Hedgehugs and the little hearts on it are the cutest.

Initially I watercoloured my background by smooshing it around in some dye ink which I'd smeared on my craft mat and sprayed with water to thin it down. Once dry I could stamp the hearts and emboss with Pink Sherbert Embossing glitter.

I cut some butterflies and dabbed the bottoms with ink and dipped them in the same Pink Sherbert.

I also covered a die cut heart with Oyster Glintz powder to give it a real shine 

and gave some letters the same treatment. Here you can see a closeup of the gorgeous embossing detail.
