Peacock

Do you love color? I do, and here’s a page that I think shows it. I used the beautiful Door to Atlantis Colorways paper from Paper House as my background. I love how the blue paper not only frames and highlights the page, but also creates a soft, peaceful mood.

Supplies Used:

To make this layout I sponged on gesso in order to prepare the background for the paint and textures I planned to use. I put the photo on watercolor paper with some foam core board in between to add dimension. I applied texture paste with three different stencils. I brushed on a layer of watercolors, then randomly dabbed on gold mica powder with my finger. I added more paint, and penciled in some areas with watercolor pencils. I glued on micro beads with glossy accents, and dabbed on another layer of gold mica.

I drew out some of the colors and details of the photo onto the paper behind it, and also used a blue butterfly to add visual interest. I tried to restrain myself from adding more items to the page, there was already a lot of detail in the photo.

I love the shimmery Gatsby Accent Pack pieces!

I used glass glitter, tulle,and a stamped peacock image, for more texture. Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

Summer Birdhouse Decor

I just love Summer decor! I decided to make this beautiful birdhouse. This can be designed to your liking using any of Paper house Products.

Here I used the Atlantis 12” Cardstock Stickers around the Door opening. I also used the dragonflies in different spots and hung keys on the vine.

Summer Birdhouse Close up 2

Here I used the puffy lady bugs stickers crawling up the side of the roof along with a few puffy butterflies as well.

The roof was done using a heart punch. The hearts were layered on top each other as a shingle effect using the Atlantis Door to Atlantis 12″ Colorways Scrapbook Paper.

This was a fun project to play with and its very eye catching around my home. Hope you give altering a try it can be addictive.

Vintage Tea Time

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a mixed media page for you today. I enjoyed working with the papers because the patterns and colors are so beautiful! Aqua is one of my all time favorite colors.

To make this page I first sponged on white gesso, to have a base for the paint to stick to. I stenciled on some texture paste, then sprayed with mist. I flicked on aqua shimmery paint with a paint brush.

I distressed the edges of papers and layered them. I put foam core board between them to add dimension. I put the photo on top and used double sided foam tape to attach it to the page.

To add texture and color I added gold mica powder, glass glitter, seed beads, micro beads, and glitter glue. I dry brushed some metallic paint over all the glitter and little beads. I added layers of pearl and aqua mica powder,and then some flowers and feathers.

Happy Monday Paper House Fans!

It’s Lisa here today sharing a layout I created using 2 lines of the ColorWays collections- Emerald and Atlantis. I love the mix of teal and green together!

Once again I used a photo of myself . I think it’s important to scrap a few “me” layouts here and there, so that when I am gone, my family can learn a bit more about me.

Enjoy Life PHEnjoy Life Supply List:

I started this layout out by adding some strips of papers and also a few of the cards and stitching them in place. I added a cute Hummingbird Puffy Sticker on top of my big flower:

Enjoy Life PH close up 3

I added a few doilies and a frame and stitched them as well:

Then I added lots of flowers and bling. I also hand cut a few more leaves from one of the Emerald Cards. Here you can see the Primrose Puffy Stickers I added. Love them!

Enjoy Life PH close up 2

Finally I added my title using puffy stickers, a few of the Mini Mixed Butterflies Puffy Stickers:

Lake Life

Summer is coming fast and what does most Fathers, Brothers and Husbands want to do? Go To the lake for some fun fishing.. So with that said I decided to make a Lake Card. These can be given as a birthday or Father’s Day Card.

Lake Life

Lake Life Card Supplies

I just love the lake Life 3D sticker collection. I used four of the stickers from the collection on this card.

I use the pattern paper from the Atlantis Colorway Collection. Don’t be afraid to cut the papers up and use both sides and layer !! the more of the papers that you layer the fuller the look..

Enjoy the warm waters on the lakes this summer!

Woman, Birds, and Nest

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a page using the stunning papers from Atlantis Colorways.2016-03-23 12.51.45 woman, pic one

Supply List:

2016-03-23 12.52.16 woman, pic 2

To make this page, I cut up the paper, arranged the pieces, and put the photo on top. I used a pencil to mark where my design would be, and took the arrangement off so I could add some mixed media.

I stenciled some texture paste on at the upper left, and sponged gesso around the marked areas with a cosmetic sponge. Gesso gives the paint and other materials a “grip”, and protects the paper.

2016-03-23 12.52.32 woman, bottom right

 To  give the project some dimension, I glued the paper on with pieces of foam core board underneath. Then I painted over the gesso with watercolors and water soluble oil pastels. To give the page more texture I used a number of different things: glass glitter, dry embossing powder, tulle, micro beads, seed beads, lace, moss, rock candy crackle paint, and ribbon.

Then to blend the colors together, I brushed on a lot of turquoise mica powder. To give the page even more definition, I scribbled on a wide, dark outline around the arrangement with a watercolor pencil, and softened the lines with water. Over that, I painted on a mix of green and brown water soluble oil pastels.

2016-03-23 12.52.40  woman bottom left

My last step was to make a crown\bird’s nest out of crystals, dried moss, silver chain, pearls,embroidery floss, tiny flowers, and feathers.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you liked my page!

Colorways Atlantis Collection – 3D Wall Art

 

Hello friends! It’s Lee-Anne here today sharing a 3D Wall Art project that I created with the new gorgeous Colorways Atlantis Collection.  I love this collection and the beautiful colors.  I thought it would be perfect for my bedroom wall over my bed.

3D Wall Art Supply List:

IMG_1830 copy

Cut several pieces of patterned paper to 6X12 inches and then cut that into 6X6 squares.  Then using a bone folder, fold  each 6X6 paper diagonally

I used a white foam board for my base. Starting at the top left corner of the white foam board begin adhering the 6X6 paper squares as shown leaving one diagonal piece up to create a diamond design as shown below  placing four squares together until the board is completely covered with paper.

I hope you are inspired to try some 3 dimensional design with these beautiful Atlantis papers.  Have a wonderful day!

Brothers Layout

On Monday we featured a layout using Atlantis ColorWays about Sisters.  Today Christine is sharing one about brothers.  How’s that for versatility!?! You can check out our entire ColorWays line-up at the bottom of this post!

Paper House Atlantis LO

Brothers Layout Supply List:

Atlantis Closeup3

I wanted to use a variety of patterns behind my pictures but I knew that I needed them to have a smaller scale so they wouldn’t overpower the pictures.  I opted for the trim cards patterned paper because it has some smaller options but I didn’t have to cut into 10 different papers.

atlantis Closeup2

One of the new additions to this collection is a 12 X 12 sheet of cardstock stickers.  They are fabulous and include things like frames, words, icons, and more!  I used them for my title, subtitle, and to frame my boys!

Atlantis Closeup1

I loved the subtle detail that the Atlantis Roman Column Patterned Paper adds to this layout.  This is obviously not the Roman Column side but it is the other side of the paper an ombre grid.  I debated on which side to use but went with this one so I could add some fun stitching.
