Now on to the fun I had! 
I love the new chippies from Scrap FX this month they are beautiful and "flowy" if you get my drift, I combined them with my papers from the Reminisce Line I received from Ruby Rock-It:

I created lots of texture with gesso and the stickers that came with the papers.

I embossed the chipboard with a mixture of powders to create the look I wanted.

Here is a closer look at the texture created with the hexagon stencil from Scrap FX, Gesso and border stickers.

I used mists to add colour to the page to match the pink hues of the paper: 

For my second LO I tried to create a more Masculine Look:

I used water colour crayons to draw the heart shape as a background.

Once again used the border stickers and papers in strips to create layers.
Embossed the chippy fern corner and alphas with a mix of embossing powders to try and compliment the photo.

So there you have it that is all from me you now head of to  Linda Kretz a Ruby Rock-It gal!
