Scraps Of Elegance has just released it's July Kit-Home Sweet Home!! It is packed full of romance, and features papers and pieces that will have you sighing as you unpack your box!!
Here is the sketch created by our very own Suepup:
And here is my take on her inspiring sketch that features a cropped and edited section of the New York Ballet's Summer 2010 poster. I just love the colors in their tutus and the perspective of the photo.
I started with a couple of layers of paper from the kit, punching the top and bottom edges of the paper and folding it back for dimension.
I matted the photo onto paper that I distressed and machine sewed, and the title work was created by using the Pink Paislee Rub Ons in the embellishment add on and rubbing them onto pieces of the paper and then cutting them down and distressing and inking the edges. I created a pocket behind the photo matting and used some of the Bo Bunny Noteworthy pieces to create a pull out journal spot.
Here you can see how it pulls out. The pull was created from a Bo Bunny Brad in the Embellishment Add On that I wrapped burlap string and tulle around.
The circle frame is a Gina's Design Flower & Vine Chipboard piece that I distress painted, embossed, melted inked fusable webbing onto and added seed beads to. I also added inked Dusty Attic Bricks to my layout for a rustic meets elegance look.
I created lots of flower layers with the cheesecloth from the kit, flowers from the Flora & Fauna Add On as well as stash and past kit flowers.
The "splatters" were created with cream acrylic paint and seed beads, and the Champagne Dreams Butterflies are from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.
I cut and unraveled th edges on some burlap, used my Sizzix and a Spellbinders Die to cut out shapes from some of the paper, then layered two different types of flowers on top to create unique accents.
Here you can see all the dimension and texture that I used to create this layout.
I just love Shabby, romantic pieces and creating with the July Kit helped me to capture that look wonderfully!! Thank you so much for dropping by, and I hope you have a nothing but FABulous weekend!! Hugs to you ~Renea
