My Challenge to you is....


I was inspired by the stencils that came in this months kit

The NEW Country Life Classic Kit
I grabbed the Heart Stencil that came in my kit, and decided to use it on the background.  I started with mixing some Modeling Paste and Finnabar Art Sugar together and used my palette knife to spread it around on the background paper
(in the end it seems I covered most of this part up..oops!)
Next I mixed some Gelatos and a spritz of water on my craft mat, and then painted in the hearts over the rest of the background, for a soft watercolour effect.
And here is my finished project!
you can see a few of the hearts painted with gelatos here

and here
in this photo you can see, in between the banner, the heart made with the Modeling Paste & Art Sugar... I wish this photo captured how sparkly it is!
So today I challenge you to use a STENCIL on your project, wether it be a Daily Dairy design element or a Scrapbook Page, its your choice.  You can use it anyway you like.... will gesso, modeling paste, mist, paint, stitch, or even just trace the design with a pen or watercolour pencil.

How I killed my Noel Mignon Kit...

Happy Monday! Today I am going to share with you how I killed my July Pool Party Kit from Noel Mignon! I wanted you to see the value of her kits!  Some people might think that $64.99 is a lot for 1 kit, but in my opinion I think its a great deal!  I spent more than that every month at other Kit Companies, because of having to buy add ons to beef up the kit. 

I created the following;
10 product heavy layouts
7 cards
1 tag
18 journal cards for daily documenting
and 1 project my son Liam made! 

Here is what I started with...
And here is what I was left with

Because this is such a photo heavy post, I will keep the words to a minimum, but if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments :)

the black camera acetate in this layout is from the backing of the Shimmelle Camera Stamp that came in this kit.  I ended up cutting that stamp into pieces so I could use the dots and the circle lens as mixed media stamping on my layouts

my son Liam made this project :)

The only items I added from my stash were;
modeling paste
gel medium
watercolour pencils
thread & twine
tissue paper
crepe paper
roller stamp

And as of this morning Noel still has 3 of these kits left!
You can find them HERE
Its the perfect kit for scrapping all of you summer pictures!

Noel Mignon - Summer Fun

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love working with the 
Today I want to share with you a layout that I created with it.

This layout was inspired by the May Arts Sheer Teal Ribbon that was included in the kit.  The moment I saw it, I knew exactly what photo I wanted to scrap with!

For the background I first started off covering the background paper with gesso. When it dried I spritzed it with water, then took a piece of clear packaging from my stash, sprayed it with several different blue mists and pressed it onto the wet background page, to give a water like effect.  Next up I used some modeling paste and a polka dot stencil to add some texture ( which I seemed to have covered mostly up lol )

The yellow webbing on the background is from a bag of lemons I had in my fridge.  It adds a little pop of colour, and texture to the layout.

How cute is that flair? It was the perfect touch for this layout!
There was so much to work with from the kit, it made creating this layout a snap!

*NOTE the sequins, navy twine & endless summer stamp were from my stash
