#secretscrapbookevent layouts by Kerrie Gurney

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts


Hi everyone Kerrie again
Today I'm sharing the layouts I created for my classes at the #secretscrapbookevent in South Africa
Now in South Africa they mainly do double pages, but the ladies were lovely and open to creating single page layouts with me.

For the #secretscrapbookevent they were very lucky to be the first people to create using the soon to be released Couture Creations Anna Griffin Mixed Media Collection.
Now these products are gorgeous, the stencils, the pigments, the creamy embossing paste amd the smoothlight  gesso along with the super fine glitter.


For both my layouts I used the Stencils and Embossing Paste but on the Kraft based  layout we mixed in some of the pigment powder to colour the embossing paste. (Remembering the embossing paste will dry darker as the poster dries)
While on the white based layout I added some iridescent super fine glitter to the embossing paste while it is still wet.
My full photos are not fabulous as for some reason the day I photographed my layouts I couldn't seem to get a good photo, the close ups are more true to colour

I just love working with these Couture Creations Anna Griffin products and can't wait for them to arrive in Australia so I can get more to create with.
