This kit is a stunning collection of Pink Paislee, Authentique and Glitz. 

If you have ever had one of those creative inspiration moments where you have so many ideas in your head you can't sleep and need to get them down then you will know where I am coming from. I was so inspired by this kit I just couldn't scrap fast enough. This is just a tiny peek at the
 Main Kit
 We have tons of add ons and our color and creativity are to die for this month!

Check out the whole kit with add ons here

I don't know about you but I get bored with myself and my main scrapping style. Dont' get me wrong I love pretty layouts and flowers and leaves but I get tired of doing that sometimes and need to spread my wings. If for no other reason than to prove to myself that:

I am not a one trick pony

I took this kit in a different direction from my norm and this is my first project. I created a mixed media canvas. The hand on the canvas is mine. I took a photo of my hand holding a chipboard number one. I then used an "ink outline" action in photoshop. LOVE how that came out and it looks so cool here.

The background of the canvas was misted with several different Lindys mists. I did not treat the canvas with gesso first. I sometimes like the look and texture of the canvas and like how it resists the color and shows through. I also used different masks with some of the Lumiere paint in the color add on as well as molding paste. I cut out the giant "A" and the the small "A" as well as the "I am not" on my Cameo. 


We always receive a wonderful sketch to work with by our talented artist Suepup/Charlotte

No Drama Zone

Oh I had a ton of fun creating this layout. One of my resolutions this year was to use my Cameo more. Here I did for sure cutting out the "No Drama Zone"
Lots of fun bits on the background- masking, splatters and drips and some masking.

Remember This

On this photo of my daughter I added a heart bokeh (credit joannastar at deviant art) as the effect and then went with that as my inspiration. The chipboard hearts are from my supply from Gina's Designs
the pieces I used here are from the Build a layout Romance collection. I used Lindys on the chipboard and detailed the edges with stickles.

Just a little close up of the details.

Wow Lisa there is so much to see on these layouts. I love all of them. You're definitely not a one trick pony :) The colors and the details, and the story telling, each piece is so different. I particularly love the No Drama piece. You are so right. TFS!
