This month's kit featured pages from "Pink Paislee......I used both papers and added the vine (cut-work) from another "Pink Paislee" page I had on hand.  Each of  the white flowers I used were in the kit.  I added "Glossy Accents" to the paper flowers, cut-work ladies, cut-work vine, and die cut scroll-work.  I used an embossing template on the scroll work before adding "Glossy Accents".  I used a circular punch on the paper and pleated it to create a ruffled effect.  I then added "Glossy Accents" to it.  When the "Glossy Accents" dried I added "Liquid Gold Leaf" to the edges of various embellishments.  I created a cascading effect of the vine by hand-painting leaves, flower extending over the photo.  I received the die cut scroll-work w/ card stock attached.....I recycled and turned the card stock over and punched lattice work around the edges.  I then added "Glossy Accents" to the edges of the lattice and made sure it covered the open space to create a stained glass effect (see close-up).....
I altered the "Dusty Attic" piece by painting it white, distressing it with "Tim Holtz"  Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) and then added "Glossy Accents" to it.  I went over the cut-work leaves, "Dusty Attic" chipboard with green alcohol ink.
Thank you for looking!
