The September Kit is just beautiful! The colors are stunning and all the embellishments are divine. This kit had a vintage heritage feel to it. While I don't have many old photos I opted to use vintage digital images. This one here I purchased from Ireland Rose on Etsy. She has the most amazing images and she's super sweet! I was inspired by the photo to go Renaissance. So, I did a lot of layering and distressing for that medieval touch.
Again, I used a digital image. This time from DivineDigital on Etsy. The blues in the papers remind me of watercolor blue. With the die cut paper I just trimmed a tiny bit off the edges and distress. Then I traced the pattern on brown cardstock, cut out and layered them.
 This is a page that I created using the monthly sketch. I misted and painted the doily with the Silks Paint that came in the kit. With the piece that I cut off from the doily I tucked underneath the left side for more dimension. I also painted the little prima flowers that came in the flower add-on.You can find the butterflies from all three pages at my Etsy Shop.
 Here is the monthly sketch
