Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2021- Four Seasons

Updated: Aug 13, 2021

Hello lovelies,

I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia and welcome to our monthly Scrapbook pages blog hop. I am glad you have joined me to hop all around the globe and check out some inspiring pages.

You may have started here or come from the talented Cheryl I got to choose this month's theme and I decided upon the four seasons - Summer, Autumn, Winter & Spring. Not everyone experiences all the four seasons where they live, so you can either celebrate all four on one page, or focus on just one season.

Here is our beautiful and incredibly talented Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Creative Team.

My page was inspired by another page I saw on Pinterest by Paige Taylor Evans. The colours and the layout was just the sort of thing I wanted to do with my 4 Seasons.

I divided up my 12"x 12 White piece of card stock into four segments. Each 6"x 6" quarter represented a season.

I then cut 4 pieces of 6"x 6" Shimmery Paper and embossed each one with the White Embossing Paste and a Decorative Mask. (I used a mix of masks, some retired.)

The winter quarter, I used the polka dot mask.

Once I had dried the embossing paste, I choose my colours for each quarter. Each quarter was splattered with a mix of colours using my re inkers and a Water Painter brush.

With the left over pieces of Shimmery White Paper, I coloured them with the re inkers and used dies to cut out foliage shapes.

The completed page looks like this.

The four photos are from my garden, taken over the last 4 seasons of this and last year.

This is how I embossed all the quarters, using Embossing Paste & the Decorative Masks. The masks and tool need to be washed immediately after use or the embossing paste will set hard onto them.

After I flicked/splattered ink over the dried embossed quarters, I used the Blending Brushes and ink pads to add some colour over the top of the embossed images.

This is how I added colour to the left over pieces of Shimmery White Card stock - I dropped a few drops of ink onto a clear block and brushed the colour onto the paper that had been wet with a bit of water from a spray bottle.

I then dried with the heat gun.

I used the Meadow & Forever Flourishing Dies to cut out all the shapes for all four quarters.
