Guest Designer at Inkido~!

Good morning, everyone! I'm happy to share with you today one of the projects I have created as a guest designer for Inkido, a Swedish manufacturer who I was first introduced to nearly a year ago through C'est Magnifique when we featured some of their papers in a kit.

I have another canvas for you today (I'm once again back on my canvas kick) that I created using their Beautiful Memories collection. You all know how much I love my fussy cutting, and there are plenty of opportunities for doing so with this range!

"Sibs"
Another great photo of my boys on Easter. (Can you tell I haven't taken many pictures sense then?? Ha!) Again, another photo I wanted to keep in color and this collection perfectly complimented that preference. 

I of course started with some background work until the textures and colors were what I wanted. I had intended to do a step-by-step tutorial of this canvas but wasn't sure if any of you would be interested? If so, let me know and I'll remember to take photos all the way through :)...

I next did a bunch of fussy cutting from the "Beige Flowers" paper and allowed my fussy cut images to decide how the design would go on this canvas. I liked the idea of the flowers hanging from and around my photo.

As you can see, I also included some of the papers in my background, including images cut again from the "Beige Flowers" paper, as well as the "Beige Anemon" paper.

Finally, Inkido also carries a wide variety of stamps! I've used the "Collage Stamp: The Alphabet Collage" in a few different spots over my canvas.

Thank-you so much for letting me share this project with you! I will be back later next month with another Inkido creation :).

Have a wonderful day!

WOW!! This is incredible as always Erin! I just love your style! I would love to see a tutorial - in particular I'd love to know how you prevent paper from warping when adding texture - whenever I try my page ends up bent out of shape with bumps! thanks for sharing your gorgeous work, Jane x
