I'm here to share some more of my layouts made with this months kit Wistful Blues. I had such a great time creating with this kit.
First up is a layout featuring moi (one of my favorite scrapping subjects). I, like some of my other DT members, have found the pinks in this kit. Pink is my signature color, I just love scrapping with it.
I did some distressing to the pattern paper, and some punching around the edges of the grey card stock. I used several pieces of scraps for layering around my photo. I used some panpastels and the mist to highlight behind my layers and clusters. I am loving the panpastels.
I used elements from the main kit, as well as the flower and embellishment add ons. The blue mist came from the mixed media add on. I threw in the panpastels, leaves and chipboard from my stash.
For my next layout, I went with the blues and incorporated some green. I used a photo of dh and myself (another of my favorite scrappy subjects).
I added a few layers behind my photo. I used the great doily that I got a Swirly camp, as a mat to my photo.
Again, I distressed the edges of the pattern paper and used some card stock beneath it. I did a bit of masking with some crackle embossing paste. Oops, I got a little crazy with the flowers and covered up part of the sentiment, lol.
See the cracks, I love the texture it created. I went over it lightly with some green chalk ink to highlight it.
I used the mixed media add on to color my chipboard. There is a piece poking it's head out at the bottom. Once colored, I stamped on it with a script stamp from my stash. Again, I used some panpastels to highlight around my photo and cluster.
