Distessed edging with Michelle Jackson-Mogford

Hi all

Last week I was lucky enough to be able to teach an all day workshop for 3 Jolly Scrappers, made all the more exciting by being able to use some of the yummy new Glitz Designs products, even before I had managed to get my hands on my fantabulous DT kit so I thought I would share pictures of the layouts we created in class.

Then and Now
This was the first layout we created. I used the idea of a previous Glitz project I created here and it was fun to use all the lovely blues in the new Vintage Blue line for a monochrome front... a contrast to the pop of colour from the new Dance in sunshine line. These two lines mix brilliantly together, that flash of green either side of the central strip across the centre is the green side of the raindrop paper.

The vintage blue paper layers created some lovely embellishments, and also the frames around my photos

and with scraps of the papers and some of the paper layers we created some lovely paper flower embellishments with beads set in glossy accents for the centres. As it was a class kit we had other product mixed in, but the new Teeny Alphas from Glitz would work brilliantly on this project as would the super cute What Nots.

Next up we created a layout using the lovely colour combo of Dance in Sunshine

This is our Happily ever after
I LOVE the colours in this collection! And the splash of red from the aida in the kit works brilliantly.

We splattered the 12 x 12 base with a co-ordinating green paint and did lots of distressing

And then lots of paper cutting in strips, hand cut scallops and circles allowed me to include as many of the yummy colours from the line as I could, well it would be rude not to!

Then finally the Dance in Sunshine paper layer created a great title for my layout and the birds and hearts cut from another paper layer made some cute embellishments.

So that was 2 layouts down but I couldn't resist creating this from what we had left

My Guy
This was a great way to use up our left overs with some clever paper piecing and again also shows how these two lines work so well together.

I love the frame cut out from the reverse side of the Dance in Sunshine stripe paper backed with a paper layer to create a title block.

And a cute strip of bunting cut from the raindrop paper finished off the layout, tying it all together.

I really enjoyed sharing the Glitzy goodness with the ladies at the workshop and loved combining 2 of the fabulous new lines to do it.
Here's what I used
Glitz Designs Vintage Blue papers; Floral, Polka, Rose, Toile
