More Bright & Brave from Illustrated Faith

Hey Magpies, welcome to November! I have a bit of a rushed blog post this month as I am in New Zealand after a death in the family but I did bring my box of Illustrated Faith products with me and managed to make 4 LO’s. The nice bright colours did cheer me up a bit! So I have got limited supplies this month but it was only a couple of times I thought I needed something I’d left behind in the UK!

This first LO is one I wanted to do in orange and pink. I saw that colour combination somewhere and wanted to use it! I started with a sheet of paper from one of the 6×8″ Paper Pads and built up on that. I used some of the acrylic shapes (arrows) from the Bright & Brave Clear Cuts Pad and then built up a lot of embellishments. I had fun adding all the embellishments on this one. There’s one of the Designers Clips Hearts on there and some of the She Blooms Enamel Hearts in different colours too.

Next up I did another LO with two colours, this time the red heart Unconditional Paper and my favourite black & white striped Bible Journalling Paper. I love the black & white stripe, it’s perfect and I used it on every LO here! My title is from Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection, the Wild white Phrase Thickers. I’ve also used the & symbol from this Rubber Shapes Pack from Dear Lizzy and I used the yellow cab on he LO below. Another heart Designer Clip, one of the Emoticon Flair Badges from Freckled Fawn along with some Nuvo Crystal Drops helped embellish this one.

Here’s another super simple design, again using the black & white striped paper! I added in one of the Bright & Brave Tip-ins and dotted with some Nuvo Crystal Drops as well. My title is from the Amy Tangerine Thickers.

This last LO is another super simple design. I’ve used a 3×4″ journalling card in the middle of 2 photos. The acrylic banner comes from the Basics, Geo Clear Cuts Pad. I used some Washi Tape from the Bright & Brave Washi Stickers Book and lots of different coloured Nuvo Crystal Drops.

So again I am using the amazing Illustrated Faith collections, Mostly Bright & Brave with some bits from the Basics Series mixed in. If there is a particular embellishment you love and need to know what specific pack it comes from, please leave me a message or ask on the Hey Little Magpie Chat & Inspiration FB page and I will let you know. I know what it’s like when you see a specific something and you have to have it! Till next month Magpies, I hope it’s not too cold in the UK and I’m signing off from New Zealand!

    Guess who had to buy lots of bottles of Nuvo Crystals? Yep, that would be me at the weekend, thanks for showing who awesome they look. But tell me, how long do they need to be left to dry, I’ve not tried them out yet. xx
