Getting Romantic With The Scraps Of Elegance February Kit~Lisa's Love Letters

Oh love is in the air!!! The new Scraps Of Elegance-Valentine Themed Kit~Lisa's Love Letters has arrived and I am soooooo head over heals!!! Blue Fern, Prima, Tulle and handcrafted Butterflies~all so perfect for creating those romantic projects on your list!!

First up, I have a layout that I created that features a photo of Misty Copeland- an author, entertainer, and American Ballet Dancer for the American Ballet Theatre, one of the three leading classical Ballet companies in the United States. If you don't know who Misty Copeland is, I encourage you to Google her. She is super talented and so inspiring with her "Unlikely Ballerina" story.

I started with papers from the kit, a base piece and then a piece that I cut down, distressed, fussy cut the bottom section  (which reminded me of stage curtains) and slightly lifted the fussy cut pieces for dimension. I then stenciled with the Texture Paste from the kit using a Script stencil to accent the page.

I stamped a chandelier using the one of the Stamps in this month's Elements Add On and some Tim Holtz Black Soot Ink, adding some stash pearls and the little wooden bow in the kit.

I then framed my photo of Misty in the large Prima Resin Frames from the kit

I punched a strip from some of the paper add on paper, and then built a large flower layer using flowers from the kit and this month's floral add on. I created the Lisa's Romance Butterflies especially for this month's kit and they feature little trinkets that can be added to the body. The "Dream" piece that I topped the large flower with is also from the kit. 

To add some more texture and visual interest, I set some eyelets and did some lacing with the black, sparkle tulle in the kit, creating a large bow and topping it with another flower. 

I am such a romantic, and this kit definitely has my attention!! I hope you find the time this month for a little romance and a lot of creativity in your life!! Hugs ~Renea
