'Beary Cute' Canvas..

Hi everyone!!
It's Tarrah here with you today to share a layout that I recently created using some of the gorgeous and brand new FabScraps Oz 'Baby Bear' collection....I also decided to mount my layout onto a canvas for more here is how I created it...  

The papers I used for my layout canvas are:
FabScraps Oz 'Baby Bear' Story Bear 1 and
FabScraps Oz 'Baby Bear' Story Bear 2 

I distressed all the edges of the Story Bear 1 paper 
and used this is my main page, 
I used a smaller piece of the Story Bear 2 paper to 
mount my photo and some of my elements... 

Once I had trimmed and distressed the edges of the Story Bear 1 paper,
 I got out my trusty X-Press It Triple Tac and 
using a foam brush, adhered this paper to the 12' x 12' canvas..

I also used some of the FabScraps Oz Baby Bear
 Journal Pre-Cuts, choosing the 
 Baby Bear Smocking pre-cuts...

the Story Bear 1 Tag Pre Cut that I mounted on the
 matching Tag chipboard using some X-Press It Clear Gel Glue 

 and I also used the Baby Bear Story Bear Journal Pre-Cut name tag
 and adhered it to the matching name tag chipboard
 piece again using the awesome X-Press It Clear Gel Glue..
 I punched holes using a small hole punch in the band
 and cut out the label section with my stanley knife.. 

I also used two of the Pre-Cuts from the FabScraps Oz
Milkshake Chic range, choosing the Pink Soda
 Milkshake pre-cut.. 

and the pastel pink Tape Measures..

I also used the FabScraps Oz Soft Blush Roses
 in pink and I also used the Baby Bear Clear Stickers as well..

I layered two of the Blush Roses together
 and used a FabScraps Oz pearl to join them together..

I chose my title, the FabScraps Oz 'Beary Cute
' Chipboard title leaving it in its raw state..

I adhered all the Pre-Cuts to my layout with the X-Press It Glue Marker Pen
 and all the Chipboard elements I used the X-Press It Clear Gel Glue
as its a little stronger than the glue marker...  

Here are all the elements on the layout before I had completely finished...

And here is the finished canvas/layout...I added a cute little
  FabScraps Oz wooden flower button to the cluster to finish it off as well...

Rock & Roll Clock

Hi everyone and welcome to another X-Press It blog post.
Today I’m using X-Press It Adhesives with some of the brand new FabScraps products.


I was given the new Rock & Roll clock to play with.

I wanted to use it for something a little different so the first thing I did was spray the clock face with some mist and paint the “8”, which was the number I wanted to highlight on my birthday themed page, with paint and glitter.


I then cut up some strips of FabScraps papers.
And layered them on the clock, as a backing for my photo.


I then cut up the hands from the Rock & Roll clock.
I painted them and later gave them a coat of watered down Liquid Pearls (for a glossy finish).


I also used some liquid pearls to outline the FabScraps Filigree Butterflies.


It was simple easy to do and it was a nice way to add another dash of colour.


I then added some FabScraps Jelly Brads,


Some gorgeous FabScraps pearls


and added some more blue with these painted FabScraps chipboard Feet.


And the end result…
”Flamingo Cake” a birthday layout.
