Compendium of Curiosities Week #12

Hello, all. I am really cutting it close today with my entry to the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week #12. This week's challenge was to use the chipped enamel technique. This is a fun technique involving metal, which has become one of my favorite materials for embellishments. I created a layout for my daughter's wedding album and the key at the bottom corner of the photo is done with the chipped enamel technique. I am also entering this layout in the Distress and Monochromatic (week 3 - Neutrals with a black and white photo) Challenges at

Mr and Mrs layout. This is my daughter and her husband after their wedding ceremony. I used a water distress technique on the background paper, misted it with Slate Glimmer Mist and added the matted photo. I completed the layout with Thickers vinyl alphas, small Prima roses in greys and white, and the chipped enamel key.

Snipz & Snailz layout. This is my son when he was 5 months old. I used a sketch from ScrapFIT's workout #27. I will also be entering this layout into the Monochromatic Challenge for Week 2 - Favorite Pastel with embossing.  I used various embossing folders to get the embossed circles and I inked over the patterns with Faded Jeans Distress Ink to make them more visible.


  1. That key turned out wonderfully and it compliments that layout perfectly.

  2. The embossed circles are very nice.

  3. Hi Celina! What a gorgeous layout! Your daughter and her husband make a beautiful couple, and you really did them justice with this great page! I love the crinkled background, and the chipped enamel key is the perfect accent!

    You baby boy is so adorable!

    Great work, two times over!
