 Never miss one of our kits again!
We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  
 This kit is so pretty and elegant! Just my style!! For my first two projects I made layouts using two totally contrasting dark! I hope you like!

 So, for my first layout I had to jump in using the soft colors. I usually don't scrap using gold, I prefer silver, but the Prima lace is so dang pretty! I cut it in half and layered on top of each other tucked under layers of paper. The Medium Add-on has Mica Powder in Gold Opal and I used that with water to accentuate the masking.  I used one of my newest butterflies, Blush Butterfly Embellishments, from my Etsy Shop. I needed a lighter butterfly and these were perfect!

 Here I did some more distress layering and masking. Using the Pearl-ex from the Medium Add-on I darkened some spots on the masking to make it pop. The leave vine is a wood embellie from the Embellishment Add-on. I using some crackle paste for texture and just colored it with some mist.

This month for the sketch I decided to make a canvas. I first treated the canvas with some white gesso. Onced dried I did and extra thick layer of the Texture Crackle Paste that came in the Medium Add-on. Leave it do dry overnight for best results. From there I did some misting and masking. Then began my layers.
