Scrapbooking with a WOW Factor!

Hi everyone! Amy Prior here today to share with you all some fabulous recent layouts that I have created using WOW Embossing Powders and Stamp Sets. These fabulous products have such an amazing array of uses in Scrapbooking and I hope my layouts below will show you new ways of using your Embossing Powders in Scrapbooking Layouts.

The first layout I have to share today is of some sky high photos I recently took on my plane trip across the beautiful Australian Country side. For this first layout, I have used the Songbird Collection from Prima Marketing which I have teamed up with some fabulous Lace, Twine & Cheesecloth. 

This embossed effect on the background was created using the Crafters Workshop Template Tile Texture 12x12 and WOW Embossing Powder White Opaque.

These gorgeous Chipboard birds from A2Z Scraplets got a coat of subtle Crackle Paint followed by some random ink splattering. To top off these beauties, I have added subtle bits of White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder. I just adore the Shabby Chic effect that was randomly created on these birds.

Lastly I altered some of my Prima Patterned Paper using the Flowers Stamp Set and some more White Opaque Embossing Powder from WOW. After creating my embossed image, I have sprayed the entire surface with water and then randomly added different shades of Perfect Pearls over the top. Of course the embossed area acted as a resist because I simply used water so I then was able to allow this to dry and it simply pooled into the non embossed areas like magic! I love how this turned out and it is such a pretty addition of sparkle to this shabby layout.

Next up is a layout of my beautiful girl Mia with her Breathtaking Beauty. Ok so I am a little biased LOL. I have used the Kaisercraft English Rose Collection along with some fabulous Chipboard pieces from A2Z Scraplets

This chipboard title received a coating of Brown ink followed by a layer of Clear Crackle Medium and then some more White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder. I just love this effect. It is so cool watching the powder melt into and around the cracks.

The Patterned Paper that I mounted these photos onto got a distressed look using the White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder.  

This beautiful birdie was a leftover from the above layout (A Birds Eye View). It fit in well with this layout and its Shabby Details.

This gorgeous A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Bird Cage looks fabulous with coats of White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder, Crackle Paint & Glimmer Mists.

And the last touch of WOW on this layout is the gorgeous added distressing of the Punch around the Page details.

This next layout is of "Just Me"and I have used the Follow Your Heart Collection Designed by Rhonna Farrar for My Minds Eye. This collection is an all time fave of mine and I simply adore how well the WOW Embossing Powder Colours worked with this layout.

I have chopped up a large sheet of Hexagons to use on this layout over the background features. The below one pictured here is coated with White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder.

The piece pictured below has been coated with a mixture of Bay Area Blue & Cotton Candy WOW Embossing Powders.

And lastly this piece was coated with Earthone Honey WOW Embossing Powders.

The Patterned Paper Mounting the photo was given a distressed edge look using Bright White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder.

This beautiful Ivory Fabric Flower also had a little touch of Bay Area Blue & Cotton Candy WOW Embossing Powders added to the edges of the petals. 

This next layout has some silly and crazy photos of myself and 2 very dear friends. We are all a little insane LOL. I have used the Boys Life Collection from Echo Park for this layout. Proving that not all boyish papers, etc have to be used for just boys.

Firstly for this layout, I have coated some fabulous Chipboard Stars from A2Z Scraplets with WOW Embossing Powders. Firstly I coated a few layers of Ultra High Copper, I then sprinkled some Bay Area Blue over the top before it dried and heated it again letting it melt together slightly.

Here you can see another star where I have used the same techniques above however for the second star pictured here, I have used the Ultra High Copper then added a layer of Cheesecloth before it dried and I have added a rough second layer of Ultra High Copper. After this step I have sprayed with Lindy Stamp Gang Chocolate Brown and allowd to dry.

The background also pictured here has had a Crafters Workshop Stencil that I sprayed with Dylusions Inks Sprays and after slightly twisting the stencil a little to the right, I have added a layer of Blueberry WOW Embossing Powder so the green looks like a shadow.

And last but not least, I have a grungey Mixed Media layout to share using WOW Embossing Powders alongside 7 Dots Studio Papers.

This fabulous title from A2Z Scraplets has had a coat of a mixture of WOW Embossing Powder Colours. The colours include Cable Car Red, Bay Area Blue & California Sunshine Regular. Both the Cable Car Red & The California Sunshine Powders are Transparent and not Opaque so they were really fun to melt with other colours and I just love the outcome!

The black tags used on this layout have also had the same mixture of WOW Embossing Powder Colours. I have used the Harlequinn Crafters Workshop Template for this effect.

WOW What a mammoth post! Thank you so much for reading and I hope I have inspired you to get your powders out and start melting! There are so many possibilities for using the WOW Embossing Powders and Stamp Sets on your layouts so try them out today!!

Until next time......Happy Scrapping!
