My Creative Scrapbook August Limited Edition Kit - Webster's Pages Strawberry Fields

Hi blog friends! Thanks so much for your very sweet comments on my blog hop post for My Creative Scrapbook. I'm thrilled to hear that several of you enjoyed seeing the stepped-out photos and background work of my layout. I will try to continue to post stepped-out photos moving forward!

Here's another layout that I made with My Creative Scrapbook's August Limited Edition kit:


I thought you might like to see how the background looked before I added some stamping and the rest of the layers... I used 4 different Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays from my stash as well as some acrylic paint and mists of water (drying in between each color) and then added a layer of modeling paste using the Prima basket weave stencil that came in the kit.

Here is one of the layouts that I created with the August Limited Edition kit:


I thought you might like to see this layout stepped out!

I learned most of the techniques that I used on this layout from the very talented Christin Gr√łnnslett. I absolutely love her amazing backgrounds... they are filled with interest and beautiful contrast.

Okay so to create my background, I prepped a piece of white cardstock with clear gesso. Then I misted a bit of water followed by some drops of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. I used a waterbrush to spread the spray drops around a bit to create a little watercolor effect, drying each color with a heat tool before applying the next color. I used 3 different pinks and a teal color.

Next I used some distress inks with stencils- 3 stencils with a pink distress ink (chevron, triangles, stars), 1 stencil with green distress ink (hearts) and 1 stencil with black distress ink (mini triangles).

For the next layer, I used modeling paste with the Prima basket weave stencil that comes in this month's Limited Edition kit. I dried that with a heat tool and then used a mini Prima script stamp with black ink to randomly stamp around the page.

I finished the background with some splatters of pink and teal mist.

 Next I layered a few pieces of the beautiful Webster's Pages Strawberry Fields papers.
 
I cut a doily (from my stash) in half and tucked the pieces in, then I adhered the photo to a piece of raw chipboard (for height) and added it to the page.

I added a simple flower cluster and a bow.

I added some wood shapes and title stickers, and finished the layout with some brief journaling.
A simple but fun to make layout!

More My Creative Scrapbook July Limited Edition Kit: Kaisercraft Storyteller

Hi blog friends! Today I'm sharing one more layout made with the My Creative Scrapbook July Limited Edition kit which features the Storyteller collection from Kaisercraft.


I LOVE the Prima flowers, crystals, and resin frames that are included in this kit.  I was so happy to find a Prima Finnabair doily stencil, too.




I treated this Prima resin heart frame with some spritzes of Lindy's Stamp Gang Medieval Gold spray and then touched it with some Prima chalk ink in pastel blue.


 Here's a photo of the kit:


The Limited Edition kits are always limited in quantity, so if you think you might want one to arrive at your door, hurry and grab one!
