Fun With FabScraps - Wild Beauty Collection

Hello, my friends!

I have some fun new FabScaps Projects to share with you today!

Today I have two projects using the gorgeous C101 Wild Beauty Collection.

First up is an Art Journal page. 
Again, as with all my FabScraps posts, I'll share the pictures,
followed by the written tutorial. 

Here's the finished page:

Here's the Tutorial:

Peacock Art Journal Page
Nancy Nickel

For this project you will need:
·       FabScraps Wild Beauty Collection Paper Range C101 006
·       FabScraps Wild Beauty Card Kit MC101 001A – One Pink Peacock Page
·       FabScraps Wild Beauty Stickers ST101 001
·       FabScraps Stencil C101 DS081
·       Art Journal of Choice (Dylusions Square Creative Journal in Black)
·       Ink of Choice in Pink and Purple (Distress Oxide Ink is best on black)
·       Gel Pens – Pink and Purple 
·       Stickles – Star Dust 

1.    On left side page, ink stencil using medium of choice, as shown in photo.
2.    From C101 006, tear (or cut) around large pink peacock image, and small purple peacock image. Also, tear the peacock image from the 6 X 6 peacock page from the Card Kit. I prefer to tear these over cutting them, as it leaves a nice soft edge when adhered to the journal.
3.    Now adhere all the peacocks in place, as shown in the photo. Score the images where they sit in the crease of the journal.
4.    Using gel pens, apply stitch marks around the peacocks. Do any other doodling you choose.
5.    Take the ticket stickers from the ST101 001 Sticker Sheet, and apply them to white cardstock. Trim out leaving a narrow white border. Apply in place, as shown in photo.

6.    Apply Stickles to the images, as shown in the photo. Enjoy!

For my second share today, I have a tag:

Here's how you make it:

Make Your Dreams Happen Tag

For this project you will need:
·       FabScraps Wild Beauty Collection Paper Range C101 007, 008
·       FabScraps Wild Beauty Stickers ST101 001
·       FabScraps Wild Beauty Chipboard DC101 004
·       Coral Cardstock – to match colour of Flamingo in paper

1.    Cut tag base from coral cardstock – 4 ¼” X 8 ½”.
2.    Cut C101 008 in tag shape – 4” X 8 ¼”. Distress edges. Border punch bottom edge.
3.    Adhere strip of ribbon 2” from bottom of tag front. Wrap ribbon to back and secure in place. Adhere tag front to tag base. Set aside.
4.    Take chipboard piece and colour black using medium of choice. I wanted a bit of shine, so I used black enamel accents to colour mine. Set aside to dry.
5.    Fussy cut some flowers from C101 007. Punch foliage from scraps.
6.    Choose a sentiment ticket from Sticker Sheet ST101 001. Adhere ticket sticker to a scrap of white cardstock. Trim out leaving a small white border.
7.    If you have a flamingo die, cut one out of coral cardstock. Alternatively, you could fussy cut a flamingo from the paper.
8.    Place large black eyelet in top center of tag. Place piece of ribbon through eyelet. Taking one final piece of ribbon, tie a small bow.
9.    Assemble all pieces and adhere in place on tag, referring to photo. Enjoy!
