2nd Reveal- Scraps of Elegance- March Kit

Hi All! 

Today I have another layout created with the March Scraps of Elegance "Annas Daydream"
In case you missed the kit you can find our site and kits >>>>>>>HERE

I've created another grungy style layout with this kit. You can do a very girly one if that's your style. The colors are just beautiful here. Gorgeous pinks, tans, golds and aqua.

 I'm using the 7 Dots Thoughts Keeper Paper here!

 The frame I used for my photo is a digi one by Holly McCaig. I had gotten it off Two Peas a long time ago. It's called "Border Effects"

I enjoy being a little clever with letters at times. Can you find the word with my little tiles jumbled up?

I added a ton of stamping to the background here. Along with stencils and pastes. I've also thrown in some chipboard from past kits. I have been trying to use add some things from my stash in my projects. Otherwise I stick with new kits and things don't get used up! We always get a ton of goodies in our kits and I can always find something to add to my pages.

Scraps of Darkness has a store and you find Blue Fern Chipboard there. That's what I used in my background here.

We also get a beautiful selection of flowers each month and I've just adored combining the gray and green with pops of white and speckled with splattered.

I've tucked some goodies in underneath the photo. This photo is a copyright free one and not my kitty.

 Of course no layout is complete lately without some cheesecloth tucked in. It provides just enough white to lighten things up!

Thanks a ton for stopping in! Happy Monday! xoxo

First Reveal-Scraps of Elegance- Annas Daydream

Scraps of Elegance - how I love thee- let me count the ways...
I'm so lucky to design for Scraps of Elegance/ Darkness. Every month is truly and "Artistic Daydream" in a box. Whenever I think I'm out of mojo and don't want to design kit arrives... and it never fails to remind me why I love creating so much. Melinda fills our kits with the BEST most CURRENT products on the market and combines them in such a skilled way with so many outstanding embellishments and spectacular mixed media products that there is just no way you can't have mojo. ;)

Now onto to my page!
I've used the 7 Dots Thoughts Keeper papers in our kit! Love them!

Never Give Up Layout by Lisa Novogrodski for Scraps of Elegance using the March  Annas Daydream kit

I love a collage look and with little bits and pieces tucked in here and there. I've created a mixed media page with lots of stamping, texture paste, stencils and mists.

I've used a lot of splattering which is currently my favorite thing to do! LOL

I tend to take my chipboard apart and use it as broken pieces. I feel sad for my chipboard. It doesn't really stand a chance .

I used tissue tape along the edge of my page on the top and bottom. Then I stamped over it... and splattered. 

Love these little tags that came with the kit. Part of the 7 Dots collection!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

BoBunny Garden Journal Tags

One of my favorite new collections from BoBunny is the Garden Journal. You can find the full collection here

I created two tags using these gorgeous papers and mixing in a few embellishments from older collections. 

Destiny Tag by Lisa Novogrodski using BoBunny Garden Journal

I used some deckle scissors to cut out the tag shape on my pattern paper. I like to cover the front and back of my tags with paper. I used book pages on the back and I'll give you a peek of that at the end.

I pulled out some of my Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies and created some flowers. I also created the flower centers with clay in a mold. Then I used Pearlescents and Glitter Pastes on them.

BoBunny has some beautiful new dies and I used one to cut out the floral shape and another beneath it. You can find BoBunny dies here.

Garden Tag by Lisa Novogrodski for BoBunny using the Garden Journal Collection

This is a peek at my second tag. Lots of layers of cheesecloth, florals and die cut leaves.

Here is a little close up of the die cut leaves. The florals were cut from another pattern paper in this collection.

Here is a peek at the back. I used a book page on the back of both tags and inked the edges.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
