Spring Beauty

After visiting the C'est Magnifique Kit Club blog for some inspiration (plenty of inspiration there to be found!), I decided to try out their gorgeous January sketch.

I added interest to the background with gesso, my hexagon template, and my homemade mist spray (watercolour paint, water and perfect pearls powder). For texture, I added torn corrugated card and medical gauze. Loving the gauze at the moment, gorgeous little fibres! 

The main paper is Glitz designs, with a few Kaisercraft embellies from their new ranges ('Secret Admirer' and 'Marigold') and a mixed bag of flowers (Kaisercraft, Green Tara, Irene's Handmade Paper Craft). 

Thanks for visiting!

Scrap The Boys - January

This months challenge at Scrap The Boys is to feature your boy's favourite summer/holiday activity and use that to inspire your layout.  There are 3 fantastic prizes up for grabs!

After much experimentation and some wasted patterned paper, my example layout finally came together.  I can always rely on my old faithful, white cardstock!
