Hello, CK friends! This is a bittersweet post since I'll be sharing my last layout for the Clique Kits design team. It has been a very wonderful creative journey and am so thankful to the CK leaders esp Gia for giving me this amazing opportunity. I'm gonna miss my fellow team members as well but I know for sure we're still gonna see each other around the scrapbooking world.
I used the June kit "Sweet Tea" main and junior kits for my project today and once again did my fave technique, fussy cutting.
I cut two strips of papers from the Main kit and placed it horizontally on the white cardstock background. I made tears to the edges of the bottom layer and lifted the edges of the paper on the top. Then I placed the two fussy cut flowers with leaves from the 6 x 6 paper pad and adhered the photos in the middle of the two.
From there, I started to embellish with flowers and stickers. I used one of the chipboard phrases as the title.
I love how this layout turned out because it's full of the things I love in a project. There's fussy cutting , layers and clusters of embellishments and interesting bits and pieces of details.
I hope you all like my layout as much as I do. This may be my last project to share here on the CK blog but I will still continue to create and inspire all of you. See you all around.
Hello Lovelies! Theresa here sharing a Mixed Media layout with you using the August kit called Meadow! This kit just absolutely blew my socks off with all the goodies, but the watercolor paper from One Canoe Two was an instant favorite so that is what I began with! Here is the layout I have created.
This paper is so beautiful to work with. In my photo we both have on blue shirts, so that is my background color, and the California Poppy seed packet guided my color choices for the pink and orange. The gelatos I used are Faber Castell: Blueberry, Pistachio, Green Tea, Red Cherry, and Tangerine. To use them as paints, I scraped off a bit from the tips and put it in my paint palette, then added a bit of water.
Just painting the paper alone was so satisfying, and the result is amazing. I encourage you to grab yours too, and just do it. You will be so glad you did!
Once the background is dry, the fun begins. I have layered very simply on this layout, using the seed packet and the Heidi Swapp stickers to frame the photo. The wood veneer butterflies fit this layout beautifully as a light, airy embellishment!
I created a very simply journal tag that hides out in the seed packet. As I was painting my background, I added a few paint splatters to the tag and added a simple ribbon to the top. My photo is a driveway selfie my husband and I took on a date night several weeks ago, so I journaled about our journey together as a blended family. I cannot imagine being on this journey with anyone else.
The tag and the ribbon, when they are in the seed packet, provide a lovely bit of texture and contrast to the layout. I loved having the seed packets to play with in this kit! For my title, I loved the Heidi Swapp words in the kit, and I also love that they repeat the navy color in my ribbon. I don't have a Minc, but the navy color contrasts against the background.
At the bottom of the page I wanted to add the date, so I did using the roller stamp that is part of the One Canoe Two collection. It is not included in the kit, but it is definitely a pretty stamp that you will want to add to your collection! To tie it into the rest of the page, I added another word phrase sticker and butterfly.
Have one more look at this super simple layout.
How are you using your Meadow kit? Be sure to share with us, we would love to see! Thank you for joining me today!
