Petaloo & QQ Day 5

Petaloo & Quick Quotes Blog Hop
(more projects & prizes)

Hello Everyone Theresa here,

Welcome to another day of the Quick Quotes and Petaloo Blog Hop, I sure hope you’ve enjoyed the hop and I can honestly say I was so excited to hear we were partnering with Petaloo and equally excited to share my layout using these Gorgeous Flowers! Any of you that know me know I Love Flowers, so this was right up my alley! The hardest part for me was deciding which ones to use! I wanted to use them ALL! Well I started with some fun papers. I used the Patsy's Paradise line of papers, I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page and then I fussy cut around the swirl on the QQ paper for some dimension and depth, then inked everything with Mocha Mama QQ Powderpuff Chalk Ink then popped the fussy cut layers. I also misted a Frosted Butterfly onto my paper with some of my homemade shimmer shine in a copper color and then added the misted Butterfly to the layout nestled in there with my flowers. Added some QQ Ribbon and did the Scrunched Ribbon technique from Michelle. Then I had some fun! I started layering my flowers, I used Canterberry Vine (Cream) & Berry Spray (Red), Mini Canterbury (Teal & Paprika) & Canterbury Rose x 6 (Vanilla & Paprika). It was so hard to stop but I had to add my bow so I scattered a few extra flowers in various places on the layout. I glued everything down with Beacon's 3 in 1 Glue (this glue will hold down almost anything and dries really fast) I used very minimal extras on this, The cardstock: DCWV, & Bling: Michael’s, that’s it. I sure hope I’ve inspired you to add some of these Beautiful Flowers from Petaloo to your next project. Enjoy!


Project: Altered Mini Canvas by ADORA
The Club Q is such an awesome kit to work on. I love the idea of a shadow box, but the quotes seem appealing too for a canvas. QQ put together a great monthly kit for October.

Here are the supplies I used:
QQ Mini Canvas Kit, Petaloo flower, Tim Holtz Distress Paint, Mod Podge

Technique: Decoupage
Decoupage is actually quite simple. If you can cut and paste, you already know most of the techniques involved. Basically, you cut out papers; you glue it onto an object (canvas) and then cover with few coats of glue (Mod Podge) to protect it.
No hop would be complete without PRIZES.

More fabulosity today!!! Theresa, your layout is delicious! These colors remind me of an old-fashioned ice cream parlor or soda shop for some reason. I don't remember seeing this paper collection before... did I miss it somehow???
Adora, your mini canvas project is every bit as beautiful and yummy! My favorite black and cream with a pop of color. Wonderfully executed!
I am not looking forward to this week end as I have so enjoyed seeing the QQ and Petaloo teams working together to create some magnificent inspirational projects. Thank you all!
