Finger Painting Scrapbook Page

Today I would like to share with you two of my favourite ever scrapbook pages.  I created these pages with some photo's I have had for a while of my daughter when she was a bit younger, finger painting (mostly herself I might add lol)

It turned out so bright & colourful, I just love it!!

I started with 2 pieces of white textured card stock then went to town stamping with multiple colours & using 2 of MFT's stamp sets Abstract Art & Jumbo Abstract Art.  I LOVE how it turned out.

Here is a close up of each individual page.  It was really hard to photograph as there was always a light shining off something shiny lol

I then cut out some huge splats using an old Quickutz die set that I have had for ages & not used, stamped them with another MFT stamp set I had called Clearly Sentimental About Art & coated them with UTEE to make them all shiny like real paint splats.  The gorgeous little paint brushes are also from MFT & I cut a wavy strip of different colour for the end to make it look like they had been dipped in paint & I used UTEE on them too for that shine.

The sentiments went perfectly with the page!!

With the last one, I used it to write the date on first & how old she was.

 Thanks for looking & I hope you like my Scrapbook pages as much as I do.  A bit of extra colour for you day  :)

MFT Card Sketch 153

I have another card for you today following along with MFT card sketch 153, which looks like this

I decided with this one that I would make a card for my Mum for Christmas & her favourite colour is Purple so I got started finding some purple papers to use.  This is how it turned out

I had a Christmas paper pack that had lots of Pinks & Purples in it, which worked perfectly for this card.  It was called Whimsical Christmas Basics by Fancheville & I have had it for a very long time, it has some really great patterned papers in it, some that can be used for any occasion.

The MFT dies that I used were Pierced Square Stax for the 4 small panels on the front, Pierced Rectangle Stax that I cut the middle darker purple piece from, Wonky Scallop Border down the left hand side, Blueprints 3 for the sentiment strip & the stamped sentiment was also from MFT called Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss each little square with some Christmas tree's, a button from my ever growing stash of buttons & some twine on the button.

It turned out well & I think my mum is going to love it (at least the colour anyway lol)

Thanks for stopping by  :)
