Hi Paper House fans! Melissa joining you today with a project highlighting our puffy stickers!These bird and flower puffy stickers would be beautiful additions to many types of projects. The flowers are so realistic and fresh, and the the birds are wonderfully cute.  I've used a photo of my son's girlfriend,and surrounded her with nature's beauty.

 Supplies Used:

What could be nicer than  bluebirds on a scrapbook page? 

To make this page I used 12 x 12 watercolor paper, I wanted a very neutral background so that the stickers would be the focus of the page.  I cut up another piece of the same type of paper, and to create dimension, arranged it with foam core board in between some of the layers.

I took a stencil and applied some texture paste.

I added a variety of things to add texture,including gauze, microbeads, sequins, feathers,pressed flowers and rhinestones.  I used a paintbrush to apply watercolors, and gesso as well. 

Thank you so much for looking, and have a wonderful week!

Autumn Page

Here's an autumn page for you that I made using papers and stickers from  the beautiful, adorable new line, Autumn Woods. I think this photo of my son fit the theme well, it was taken at a local state park called Armand Bayou.  

Supplies Used:

Papers and stickers from the Autumn Woods Collection.

To make this page I created dimension by attaching foam core board underneath both the photo,and the mat paper underneath it. I used a stencil and texture paste and put the branch on, painted it with water and gold mica powder,and applied brown watercolor over it.  I used tan acrylic paint on different areas of the page. I love the fox and racoon, they added so much visual interest.

I distressed all the edges of the paper, and painted them with gold mica powder and water, then brown watercolor. I ripped the page and added another layer underneath it.

I used a few pressed wildflowers from an adjacent park, to create texture.

I die cut some leaves, and painted them with watercolors. 
Thanks for looking, and have a great week!
