Oh What Fun Blog Hop

Welcome to our Oh What Fun blog hop, if you arrived here from Shaunna's Passionate About Pages  you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance it's nice to see you, to continue the hop click on the link at the end of this post.

I must admit I love the traditional colours of red and green for Christmas and can't quite get my head around to using pinks and blues. The Oh What Fun collection has these beautiful  pinks, blues and greens which I can see using for lots of projects. I do love the colours in this collection but just not for Christmas. The compliments pack has some really cute elements.

The beautiful pinks and blues did work really well with these photos of a scrapbooking event. My niece Laura Beacham is also a CTMH consultant and she made this fantastic flower frame for a photo opportunity at the workshop. I decide to replicate the look of the frame as decoration for my layout. I must give credit to Jennifer Smith  I used one of her layouts as inspiration.

I have been wanting to have a go at using the Textured Paste since it was released and now was as good a time as any, so I created this mixed media canvas. I used the small pink dot paper as the background and then added smaller pieces of the large pink dot paper. I sponged white ink over the canvas and then stamped the butterflies in black Momento ink.

Now was the time to try the Textured Paste, using a script stencil I added the Textured Paste with one of the Palette Knives to a few spots on the canvas. Once the Textures Paste had dried I added some pink spray ink that I have in my stash. The butterfly was stamped on the same paper that I used for the title then fussy cut it. I cut another butterfly in the glacier cardstock and added the stamped butterfly on top with 3d foam. I used four different patterned papers to make the roses. The roses, pearls and burlap twine completes this project.If you haven't tried the Textured Paste yet I encourage you to try it, it was a lot of fun.

 I couldn't be bothered get my cricut out so I hand cut the rolled roses. It really is very easy to make these. Cut a circle out of your papers then cut the circle into a spiral.

Roll it up and using glue dots adhere it to small circle that is at the end of the spiral.
To finish off the roses I inked the edges with Raspberry ink and added a pink pearl.

Thank you very much for stopping by to continue the hop go to Lauren Moore"s blog and see what she has to share. Please take a moment and leave a comment, it is very much appreciated.
