One of my most favorite product for scrapbooking/ mixed media projects is laser cut chipboard, to be more specific... Blue Fern Studios Laser Cut Chipboards! Why you ask me? It's because they come up with a wide wide wide range of designs to choose from which can easily fit any scrapbooking style.
Let me show you three layouts I made in three different styles, all using chipboards from Blue Fern Studios...
1. My most loved style - shabby chic and feminine...
2. Bright and Fun...
3. Masculine or Boy page...
It just goes well with any scrapping style! I just love it all! It certainly adds that finishing touch to any page. Hope you all have a crafty week ahead of you!

I recently had the amazing opportunity to visit Malaysia again for another class at Scrap-N-Crop. This time we focused on incorporating mixed media elements to scrapbooking. For the first day we created a mini album from Prima, together with papers and embellishments from Webster's Pages, plus tons of mediums from Golden Acrylics, Ranger, Tattered Angels and Faber Castel.
Here are some pics of the album...
And here is the bonus layout - on watercolor background...
I had so much fun teaching the class to a bunch of wonderful and talented ladies. I will be posting more pics soon from the class and from day 2 session as well.
It was certainly fun to play guest detective at CSI...Color, Stories, and Inspiration...
The case files are so detailed. You can definitely find some inspiration there as well as lots of prompts to get you rushing off to your work area..
This is the first case I worked on:
And here is my take...I was able to include almost everything from the evidence list (except for the star and the chicken wire). It was so fun to just keep grabbing and adding stuff cause it was on the evidence list!
If you have not yet played along with CSI, you have to give it a go.

Here is a layout filled with beautiful chipboard pieces from Blue Fern Studios....
... fancy birdcage (post)
... Seasonal Wild Flowers
To create the texture on the chipboard, I first painted it with gesso and then added some structuring medium to give it a nice rough texture. While the medium was wet, I added embossing powders and enamels in white and gold and heat set it. I then took out my copic markers to add hints of blue to the chipboard pieces. If you don't have copic markers, you can use any coloring material that works on non porous surfaces like alcohol inks, paints, glazes, etc. This is because some embossing powders (or most of it) resist water based mediums.
Oh wow do I miss blogging, and scrapping, and playing with my stuff! I have been so busy with family matters since Christmas but things have finally slowed down now and I can resume my normal life... so here goes.. a very much delayed sharing of some recent projects I made with "Modern Romance". Hope you'll enjoy these images....

I hope you all have a great week ahead of you! As for me, my daughter Nicole will be having her first field trip tomorrow... and I still am a wreck at having to deal with letting her go on her own... SO I volunteered as a parent assistant!! LOL! My daughter is pretty happy with it though... so I'm happy too:)
