Design Team "Moment To Shine" Photo Tutorial by Pam Ellis!

Hello again everyone & welcome to our September photo tutorial by Design Team
 member Pam Ellis from Canada.  She walks us through one of her signature 
shabby chic style layouts today, using our current challenge here.  

Pam shared a sneak peak of her layout for our mid month revea
& now we get to see her whole layout & the creative process behind it!

HOW pretty is this?!?
Utter fairy-tale gorgeousness...

Let's get to know a little bit about Pam!

"Hello!  My name is Pam Ellis & I live in Gravenhurst, Canada.
  I am a retired nurse with a supportive hubby, 5 daughters & 4 grandchildren. 
 I started scrapbooking in 2007 when my 1st grandchild was born 
but only jumped right in in 2011 when I had more time. 

My signature style is shabby chic but  recently I have been incorporating 
mixed media too & loving it!  I am a paper junkie & stash hoarder & my studio 
has been moved & made over several times due my ever expanding supplies!!  

I would love you to follow along with my creative journey by visiting
 my blog here.  I have an awesome GIVEAWAY going on at the moment 
so please come & take a peek!!


1.    Choose 1 plain cardstock & 3 subtle-print papers.
Trim down your printed papers slightly to form a layered-up look.
Adhere all sheets together.

2.  Ink up your background to match your papers, using chalk ink pads or gelatos.  
Place tags & die-cuts on your layout & tuck some torn music papers under your top layer. 

3.  Using a variety of stamps, stamp images on your layout. 

4.   Apply modeling paste through a stencil around the inked areas.

5.   Apply a coat or 2 of co-ordinating paint onto your chipboard piece.  

 Apply Liquid Pearls to your chipboard then sprinkle
 with embossing powder.  Heat dry to set.   

ST 57.  77.7.
7.  Add your photograph, flower clusters, buttons, 
crystals & chipboard to complete your layout.  

Here are a few closeups.

Tucking in off-cuts of ribbon & papers is a great way to add interest to your layouts!

Stamping & masking is always a great way to add subtle detail.

Here is what I used to create my layout :-
