Mixed Media Monday - 27.3.17

Hello my crafty friends, Lisa here to share a layout I created with a photograph of me....and another super color-packed project made with the February Scraps of Elegance kit.

Loving these 49 & Market papers....the colors are so pretty! I really enjoy playing around
with watercolors on my background, and I just added lots of different colors here........yellow, orange, pink and purple. I also really loved the Lindy's Stamp Gang 'Shaker'...I just mixed it with a little
water, I think I'll want more of those for sure.

Here are a few close ups:

 I fussy cut some flowers and clocks out of one of the papers and then used a doily, the stencil with modeling paste, some glass stones and a Prima bird, all from the Main kit,
and also lots of flowers from the Floral Add On.

Hugs, Lisa xo

2 New kits: Hello Beautiful and Boys Will Be Boys

Most days our posts are sharing gorgeous projects and/or tutorials from our designers, but once a month we have our kits to share - we are, after all, monthly scrapbook kit clubs!

So today we are sharing our March kits.  The first is our Scraps of Darkness kit, and it's called "Boys Will Be Boys":

As soon as I saw Blue Fern Studios' Chesterville collection, I knew I had to use it in a kit, and the first thing I thought of was that it's perfect for grunge and masculine layouts and projects.  So this one is dedicated to my grandson, who I thought about as I was picking all those goodies out!  You can see the papers included in the Patterned Paper Add On Photo below, and if you'd like to see a breakdown of all the products included in the kit and add ons, we list them all on the product pages in our store, and you can find them here: Scraps of Darkness Kits

And here are photos of this months SOD kit Add Ons:

Patterned Papers (included in the main kit or available separately as an Add-On):

Coordinating Papers (these are NOT included in the main kit):


And what could be more elegant than Graphic 45's Portrait of a Lady collection, which we feature in our March Scraps of Elegance kit - Hello Beautiful

You can always see our current kit and add ons in our store here: Scraps of Elegance kits. And here are photos of this month's kit Add-Ons:

Patterned Papers (included in the main kit, but also available separately as an add-on):

Thank you for coming to see our March kits, and have a beautiful and inspiring week!

Amy's gorgeous Watercolor Wishes kit layout

Good morning lovelies, 
On my birthday and I would like to share a 12 by 12 layout using the amazing wonderful February "Watercolor Wishes" kit at Scraps of Elegance. This is a gorgeous kit with all pretty 49 and Market goodies in it but also some pretty metal pieces and other stunning embellishments this is just a must have kit. 

Together we Smile:

 The picture I used is of my precious cousin her daughters Nadene and Hanna and I really love this picture of them {it's so sweet}. I really got inspired to use this picture because of the lovely haute couture stamp set by Gabrielle Pollacco that was also in this kit.

I also used some sticker words that I had in my stash but you can also print words or text on a pieces of patterned paper and just print it out that works fine for me on most layouts. The chipboard piece I used here is treated with rust paste by Finnabair and it was cut in two.

Those glass stones that are in this kit are just the bomb wow I really enjoyed using them on this particular layout. The pretty metal bird you see at the bottom picture is by Prima Marketing and is so adorable. I used the pretty stencil in the kit on different parts of my layout and also I added a bunch of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on this piece.

This main kit is still available at the Scraps of Darkness/Elegance Store so it you would like it please be quick because it's amazing. Just take a good look at all these yummy products below.

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and have a wonderful week...

2 sweet layouts by Tatiana: mixed media with a bit of bling!

Hi! Tatiana here
I adore to add bling and shine to my projects and with February Scraps of Darkness kit 'Our Story' it's easy to do, because this month kit includes papers from Prima 'Love clippings' collection with rose foil accents and BoBunny foil rub-ons.
I created layout about one warm fall day in the park. For my layout I used Blue Fern Studios paper, Prima journaling cards and pieces of Prima paper with foil accents. I also added Kaisercraft glitter cardstock.

Chipboard was covered with distress marker included in the kit, I also added a little bit of bling to it with glitter. When layering was finished I added rub-ons and background stamping.

Butterflies were cut from journaling card, leaves were stamped on the cork and cut. I also added die cut leaves which were covered with two layers of embossing powder. As the final touches were added sequins, rhinestones splashes and pearls.

I used from the Main kit

This time I'd like to share layout with dark paper included in the Main February Scraps of Darkness kit. This paper is from Blue Fern Studios' Memoirs Collection.

For my layout I used my daughter's photo. I dressed her in a modern variation of Little Red Riding Hood costume and we took wonderful series of photo.

On the first step I added texture to my background using stencil included in the Elements add on and textured paste with sand. When all was dried I randomly applied transparent crackle paste and start layering.

For the layers behind the photo I used Prima paper pieces and journaling cards, I also cut doily pieces from one of Prima paper included in the Main kit. I also used scraps with notes from the magazine and Prima chipboard from previous Scraps of Darkness kit.

For my layout I also created cork embellishments. I stamped images on the cork and cut them out.

When layering was finished, I added BoBunny rub-ons, background stamping with the stamp included in the Main kit and added colour using Magicals, Lindy's  mists, Jacquard paint and glitter brush pen from previous kit. At the final step I added splashes, liquid pearls, rhinestones and pearls.

Mixed Media by Annie: 2 amazing layouts

Here is my 3rd layout for this  month ! The Lindy's Magical powder is just wonderful ! I also used the Lindy's spray included in the color add-on kit. 

here is my 4th layout !

Instead of a photo, I decided to use the Gabrielle Pollacco Ballerina Stamp included in the kit.  After I started I decided to add all the embellishments to create like a dress, I love the result!!! I used a lot of flowers from the kit and flower add-on kit too. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
