Creating Special Times With The Scraps Of Elegance January Kit~Renea's Charm

This month, I am so excited to have the January Scraps Of Elegance Kit named after me~Renea's Charm!! Melinda has put together a kit that reflects my County Chic style so perfectly and I have been in heaven ever since my kit arrived at my door!! Thank you Mel for having me as part of this amazing team and for giving me the honor of having this kit named after me!!

For my first project with the kit, I used a photo of my sweet niece Haley, that my sister took. I have a super talented sis, who own her own photography studio, All About Smiles, and I love going through her photos and snagging a few. 

I did lots of tearing, distressing, paper rolling, and layering of the kit papers to get that edgy look that I love. I then stipple painted and did some gesso drops that I coated in Reneabouquets Silver MicroBeads and Reneabouquets Light Grey Glitter Glass. The chipboard latice, I tucked under the corner tears is from a past kit.

I used one of the Fabscraps Gates, and the Prima Resin Fountain to add dimension and give my layout an outside garden look.

I laced the wooden hearts from the kit into the pattern on the paper using the textured trim that was also in the kit, and added a piece that I fussy cut from the Fabscraps pieces in the kit for my title "Extra Special Times". The Oh So Shabby Chic Butterflies are some of my FAVS and are included in this month's kit.

The burlap flowers were from the kit and the smaller flowers were all from past kits.
You can see all the layering and painting texture and dimension at this angle. 

More flowers, hearts, layering and texute.

I hope that you have enjoyed my 1st layout with the Renea's Charm Kit and I hope that you can grab one and come scrap along with me and the Design Team !! Hugs ~Renea
