My first layout is of Claudine on the day of her first Semi Formal Dance.
This kit included so many Kaisercraft goodies. The papers were from the Sweet Nothings Collections...so beautiful. Just perfect for fussy cutting. I did the usual sewing and some stamping. I also ordered the paper add-on kit so I was able to cut out the chandelier and pop dot it over the same image and added some Kaisercraft bling and pearls. The wooden gate is also from Kaisercraft and I painted it white and added some of the bronze Stickles included in the kit to give it a aged, rusty look.
Just have a look at this gorgeous butterfly. It was hard to capture just how pretty it is in a photo but it is so sparkly in real life(tutorial to follow)
MY next layout is also of my sweet girl.
This one was a lot of fun to do. I made the background by applying gesso to a butterfly mask and adding some microbeads while still wet. I made the second image by simply turning the mask over and applying the wet side down. I then dried with the heat gun and went a little crazy with the Glimmermist. I also outlined the butterfly with the White Gel Pin included in the Kit. The stamp is from my stash.
I brightened the flowers on the paper by applying glimmermist with a small paint brush.I also changed the color of the flowers with Glimmermist...wonderful stuff! I cut a few strips and also made a few rolled paper roses.
On to my last layout...sorry if this is getting a bit long. This is hubby and me...photos of us are scarce and it is my intention to change that.
I did some punching and traced around the butterflies using the white gel pen. I made the little heart from trim included in the kit and punched out a few flowers from the paper using the small retro punch.Here are just a few closeups
Well, thats it for me. Here a a few photos of the kit. Be sure to place your order cause they wont last long!
