We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!
My first page is based on this month's beautiful sketch by the talented Beggahuna:
Everything is from the Main Kit and Add-ons except for the doily (courtesy of my local Dollar Store). Using distress inks and texture paste, I created the background with a TCW ledger stencil. The burlap flowers coordinated perfectly and I love the wired mesh ribbon! The Prima diecut clock was embossed with clear chunky embossing power,then cracked and inked for the vintage effect.
My next page highlights the neutral side of the kit:
I realize the brushes in the Add-on were probably meant to be used to paint, but I couldn't resist working them into the theme! My backgound was misted with Heidi Swapp in Tinsel, Tattered Angel in Cinder and Lindy's Stamp Gang in Steel. Then I applied a layer of Ranger crackle paint in Soot. After that dried I used the French Script stamp from Something Tattered and Ranger Gold embossing powder to add more texture. The Kit and Add-ons include such fun little embellishments like the pen nubs and sweet tags.The Prima wooden butterflies were simply crackled and pasted in flight.
My last page for today features the gorgeous and rich burgandies of the kit:
I fussy cut the border and created a anchoring area using gesso, an older Prima stamp and Perfect Pearl Powders in red and silver. There is more of it but it got covered up as I added layers! The mats and chipboards made it easy to effortless match and layer.I embossed the mats with a Tim Holtz brick pattern which shows up better in real life. The swirls were cut on my Cuttlebug and embossed and inked for texture. I simply glittered the Prima dragonflies for some bling!
