Hello, I am from the Great Lakes of Ontario Canada. Scrapbooking started out for me a few years ago, lots of classes from great instructors and here I am looking at mixed media as my new challenge for 2013. As for my scrapping style… well, that is ….TBA. I create using products that feel good to me. I am inspired by talented designers and experiment with new techniques, so spikes of different styles will be noted above the radar!
I tend to scrap in 3 styles : Eclectic/Freestyle, Romantic/Shabby Chic and Multimedia.

Here is a little bit about this layout from Ava: Costa: Ocean Waters calm my Soul
Have you tried this technique water misting yet? Let me share my layout with you that features water misting and hot glue application.
The lace border trim around the photo was created using the Martha Stewart punch, by misting the border punched trim with a water mister. Once the water has soaked in like 1 minute, fold like a fan the strip of paper and shape to the desired shape and let the border rest (dry) somewhat and like magic, you have a full textured element for your page. I misted my flower as well to get the curled look to the petals.
Now, you can see how much fun embossing Core essential papers are from this layout, which I made exclusively with Core’dinations cardstock. All my embellishments are made from Core’dinations cardstock as well. The vine, tags, border circle trim, medallions and flower….all CORE!
Now let’s check out the glossy water ripples on this layout. Fellow Core team designer Vivian Keh, is known as is an educator of this technique. I am one of her followers and thought I had better give this a try on this layout. You can get lots of technique videos from Vivian at her blog. Using the hot glue on this layout is fast and very effective for a water scene to get the ripple effect. Be sure to get some practice before you make an attempt on a final art project because your paper may ripple a bit from the hot glue. So, this is a layout about me; water’s edge has a magical calming effect on my inner self.
What a beautiful layout…and GREAT journaling! love it.
