For my first project with the kit, I have a layout that I created surrounding a Vintage Image. I wanted to capture a timeless look that also reflects some of the techniques that I love to use that add lots of texture and dimension.
I started with a layer of kit paper, then distressed and distress punched a second layer. I then added a kit paper background for my photo.
I then created layers of flowers and vines using Flowers from the kit , along with Prima Symphony Blend Flowers In Amoroso Pink, and Camellia Flowers In Ivory. I added in mulberry paper leaves and curled floral wire from my stash. I then tucked in one of the Prima Clocks from this month's Elements Add On and topped it with Prima Metal Clock Hands.
You can find a set of 2 of my Reneabouquets Sweet Dreams Butterflies In Buttercream, in this month's kit.
I took pieces of the Blue Fern Frolic Mesh Chipboard included in the kit, inked it, then heat embossed it, and then topped it with flowers a rose from the kit, another Camellia Flower, another Prima Clock Face with a Prima Garden Fable Crystal from the E.A.O.
Next I sprayed the bottom right hand side of my layout with Prima Bloom Spray In Ginger Coral, and then over sprayed it with Prima Bloom Spray In Gold Foil to get that gorgeous coral and gold striated color effect. I then painted down the side of my photo and into the color with Tim Holtz Distress Rock Candy Crackle which allowed the color to play through.
I then layered on pieces of white tissue paper with Ranger Texture Paste. After that dried I added some of the Mica Flakes from the kit and dusted it with Reneabouquets Chunky Glitter Glass In Diamond for loads of shimmer that you just can't see in a photograph. I then added a Prima Garden Fable Chipboard piece with the sentiment "time with you" on it, and added more flowers and foliage.
Thanks for taking some of your precious time to stop by my blog!! All of you inspire me so much with your wonderful work and I can only hope that you find some inspiration from my work as well! Hugs ~Renea
