LOVE this!

Hey Crafty Friends... It's my turn up for Team eBrush. These next two weeks we will be featuring awesome papers from Teresa Collins!! Yay!!

These papers are so super fab that they make your projects shine... literally!! I'm digging all the gold foil throughout her lines. And as a bonus many of her lines coordinate very well with each other!


Supplies Used
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies- Butterfly, Phrases, Honeycomb (Memory Collection), Flowers and leaf (Girls Best Friend & Thankful sets)- Craftwell
Teresa Collins papers- (Project Pink- CardsLatticeGold), (Collectors Edition- GildedGeometric)
Stemmed leaf  (Small Ivy die - Die-Namites)
Sharpie Markers (Green, lime green, orange, brown)
Spectrum Noir Markers (IB2, CR2, CR5)
Gesso (Liquitex)
Modeling paste
Stencil (DCWV)
Polka Dots background stamp (Hero Arts)
Hot Glue gun and sticks
Assorted paper flowers (Prima Marketing)
Assorted ribbon & Tulle (Offray)
Assorted Buttons (Buttons Galore)
Diamond Glaze (Judikins)
2Way Glue Pen (EK Success)
Cutter Bee Scissors (EK Success)
Corner punch (EK Success)

I started by cutting out several the little golden square out of my Teresa Collins Lattice paper. I loved the look to this foil... it's has a nice shine without being overpowering.

Then I slid them into my Xyron "X" to turn them into instant stickers.

Then I just peeled them and arranged them randomly onto my sheet of Teresa Collins Gilded paper.

 I used my die cut machine and cut out 1 large leaf, 2 stemmed leaves,  2 honeycombs, and 1 of each phrase.

I ebrushed all my die cut pieces and paper flowers.


I cut out this awesome honeycomb panel from my Teresa Collins Cards sheet. Then rounded the corners.


I used my glue pan to adhere my different phrases onto a sheet of  Teresa Collins Gold paper... it has a lovely water brushed look on the backside of the gold!


Next I ran all my ribbon, die cuts, panel, and picture through my Xyron Creative Station!! Extra large platform is great for not just the BIG jobs but the many Small ones as well... so much better than having do them one at a time!!

Then I gessoed this adorable wood veneer bird cage I found at Michael's. Then I ebrushed it in Spectrum Noir IB2.

I also used more gesso to add details onto my butterfly wings.While that was drying...

I arranged and attached all my newly adhesive'd pieces. I hot glued buttons onto my flowers and used Diamond Glaze to attach them to my layout. And I made sure to use my glue pen to do the delicate honeycombs.

I cut out some Teresa collins Gilded paper to make my white and gold foiled roses. I used the flower die from the Teresa Collins Memory Collection for the flower and cut a total of 8 of the small flowers (4 for each rose). I also used the same paper to make the white and gold daisies. For the daisies I cut out a total of 6 daisies from the small daisy from the Teresa Collins Thankful Holiday set to make the 2 completed daisies.

I love mixed media but hate the time it takes for most pastes and paints to dry. With the ebrush I can do mixed media with little to NO drying time!! The bird cage was ebrushed with my Spectrum Noir IB2 marker and dried INSTANTLY! I even ebrushed after I had attached all my elements onto my layout... around my main focal area  and pretty much everywhere I had a bit of honeycomb.

And here is my finished layout. 
Now I have a dainty page to match my precious baby girl (Who's not a little baby anymore)! 



CLOSE UPS

White Daisy and Large Green Leaf are both from the Thankful Holiday set. Branched leaf is Small Ivy die from Die-Namites

 The White Rose is made using the smallest flower from the Teresa Collins Girl's Best Friend set. All details on butterfly were freehand handpainted.

The Honeycomb and Pink Butterfly (above) are both from the Teresa Collins Memory Collection set. I used Diamond glaze on bird in bird cage to add a bit of dimension.

I hope you enjoyed today's project!!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!
