Urban Oasis 12 X 12 Layout

Hello crafty friends, today I am here to share with you a layout created with a new paper line by Quick Quotes, it is called Urban Oasis, I had fun playing with the paper & just laid the paper in different formats & this is what the end result was. On the banners I used chalk ink to give them a finished look, as well as the long strips. I layered the quote card over a green piece of paper from the collection.

Seven of the nine pocket cards have chipboad

The chipboard was inked with 2016 chalking ink - Aqua. Circles were punched out of the paper line Chiffrom Collection. After adhering the apttern paper to the circle area's then adhereing the circles together. I then punched out a Quick Quoto's Quote to fit the smaller of the two circles, Chalking the edges all the way around. Then mounted the quote to the smaller circle.

The 2nd pocket page I used yellow distress paint, let that dry then added black stripes to the backs of the bee's then but on two coats of clear Ultra Think Embossing Powder to the honeycomb & the bee's. I then punched out a flower using the chiffon paper collection. gas punmp.

The lace corner chipboard was painted a light sage paint then covered with chaling Ink light moss. An older Quick Quotes quote. Before adhering it to the center of the lace corners all the edges where inked using Light Moss Chalking Ink.

On the fourth pocket card the chipboard was painted  then on the airplane I use pearl drops to the body of the plane & the top, wheels & perpelor was painted black. The green banner was painted with a light sage distress paint then I stamped a saying from the stepin up saying "every day is the perfect adventure"

On the Fifth card chiffon papper was added to the cat using quick dry adhessive.Taking an exacto knife I cut off the the extra's.  Tfhe chip board was then put through an  embossing folder adding texture to the cat. The flourisih was painted with two distress inks. The butterflu & bow tie was lightly painted then the tumbled glass distress glitter was added to both. The chipboard was then adhered to the base card.

The fairies were painted with distress paint & their wings  have gold UTEE - Ultra Thinck Embossing Enamel. After the paint was dry I added glossy accents to the bodies of the fairies.
I punched out leaves/vines using rhe paper line then coved with Chalking Ink Light Moss. The vines were layered first then placing the fairies over most of the vines with on vine layered on top of the smallest fairy. Finished with a small flower with a white pearl in the center.

On the final pocket card a window chipboad was painted with gesso chalk inking around the entire window with Lemon Sorbet. the dragonfly chipboard was finished with distress glitter.
