Couture Creations day TWO!

We are here having fun this week with Couture Creations. It’s no secret that Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock looks fabulous with dies and embossing folder especially when you sand, sand, sand!  Couture Creations is  an Australian owneda & loved brand, Couture Creations is the culmination of 20 years experience in the scrapbooking industry. From its final inception in 2010, Couture Creations has been devoted to producing expertly designed, high quality products overseen by veteran designers & crafters for a result that is both simple and elegant.

Make sure you head over to their BLOG, PINTERESTFACEBOOK pages to find out all the other chances you can win. Here is a sneak of what is going on over there today.  Please keep in mind we are in two different time zones so in case we are off on our times bit please forgive us.   We are getting our coffee ready when they are getting ready for bed.

We have some gorgeous projects for you today! Three very different takes on what you can do with Core’dinations and Couture Creations projects.  Mixed Media and a CAS card…something for everyone.

First up Designer Ava Gavloski. She is the queen of texture! She always is inspired by life and created this mixed media canvas for us today. Here is a little bit about this project from Ava….Recently, I visited the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (  That visit inspired me to create my Core’dinations Couture Creations canvas.    There is a plant at the rock garden  called a Helleborus that likes the shade and the young leaves of the plant look like a pale mint green flower which eventually become the leaves of the plant.

I folded tissue paper making  a stack of 4 sheets for each of the 3 flowers die cutting with  the Couture Creations Doily die.  Keeping the tissue paper stacked together after removing from the die, fold the flower in half and half again and hot glue the edges as you shape the doily flower.  Spray with your favorite re-inker/water mixture  and dry.

And a close up of that gorgeous Fantasia Doily Die from Couture Creations:

Then the fun part of this project was selecting the various green co-ordinating colors from the Core’dinations collections that harmonize with each other.  Core’dinations collections sing in harmony on this organic canvas.

Once the color tones were selected the Couture Creations Embossing folders were perfect for this organic rock garden inspired canvas.  Emboss, sand and tear the Core’dinations embossed papers and layer onto your canvas.  Apply the Gel medium to hold all the elements in place and sprinkle with the beads and sequins while the gel is still wet. Love the grass chipboard pieces by ScrapMatts.
It’s all about texture…
