Hello crafty friends!
Yesterday was our reveal our first kit- it’s so pretty! Today, I’m sharing a layout I made based on the sketch for our monthly challenge. Kim, owner of Tres Jolie kits designed this sketch, filled with elegant and romantic details. Check it out:
And here’s my take on it:
The dark blue 13 Arts paper that I used for the background reminded me of the picture I used, so I started my layout knowing I was going to incorporate these dark elements into the sketch page. I really wanted to draw attention to the photo so I kept the dark paper and dark elements to a minimum, but gave the page a nice flow of the mixture of tones.
The lace peeking out from under the main paper layer is from the kit, but I used a couple of different blue mist sprays (Lindy’s Stamp Gang Time Travel Teal, and Tibetan Poppy Teal) from my stash to give it the teal color. I did this because as I was building my design, incorporating a doily (from my stash) with the lace was a bit too unbalanced with all of the white.
Here’s a closeup that shows how the lace is two-tone with the different mists. And, you can see the embossing of the Creative Embellishments chipboard frame. I used WOW! Embossing Powder in Verdigris, which has an amazing two-toned color with the green and gold.
I did quite a bit of fussy cutting of the 13 Arts paper that I used for layers peeking from under the doily and flowers. There are some amazing leaves, flowers and feathers. I also cut a piece of the Prima paper that had some printed elements that I used under the picture.
I cut up the Prima beaded vine and used it in different sections of the layout, including the bottom left of the page to follow the sketch. I added blue pearls from my stash to complete the look.
