SEPTEMBER REVEAL ~Simply Shabby Chic~

Hi crafty friends!
I can't believe September is here and it's reveal time!
~Scraps of Elegance~
I created my first layout using the awesome "Prima" papers "Delight Collection" -Darling..........I loaded on "Faber Castell" Gelato's in yellows/oranges (available at the online store click here) on the papers, cut work, flowers, etc.  I created texture on this page by using gesso and molding paste.  I went over that with an embossing pen and used "Lindy's Stamp Gang" (Desert Moon Copper Pine) embossing powder to create MORE texture.  I also used "Desert Moon Copper Pine" on the Sizzix die cut frame.
I also used "Recollections" embossing powder in gold.
I did some cut work on the second "Prima"  paper and added stamping and embossing around the cut work.
I added the beautiful lace trim (available in the kit) and "Prima" flowers (add on with the kit).
Here you see stamp work and use of the yellow gelato.

I added some broken jewelry and a butterfly image from "Moonlight Journey".
Here you can see the glow of the embossing I drew on with an embossing pen and went over the "Sizzix" die cut frame.  ("Lindy's Stamp Gang" Dessert Moon Copper Pine)
My next project was based on Suepup's gorgeous sketch:
I also used "Prima" papers with this layout.  The "Delight Collection" - Doilie.
I used a "Prima" flower stencil and mixed deep red/burgundy acrylic paint with molding paste to create textured flowers.
I made my own mini roses and petals using a punch and spraying with "Lindy's Stamp Gang" Flat Fabio -Ruby Red Slippers.  I used a red gelato over the textured/stenciled flowers and rubbed in at the bottom left of the page.
I mixed two colors of embossing power for the "Stunning" chipboard (chipboard available in the kit).  The colors are:
"Lindy's Stamp Gang - Candy Cane Red Gold and Midnight Copper
The beautiful burgundy ribbon filigree gem, and key is included with the embellishment add on.
I used some peach/nude acrylic paint and "Lindy's Stamp Gang" Copper mists to give this page an antiqued appearance.
I added some copper/bronze colored beads to accent the embossing.
Stenciling/painting close-up.  The copper/bronze centers of the flowers is hand drawn with an embossing pen and heat embossed.

    1. Kasha Gray came from: (you can see it on my side bar)ABOUT ME too: - When my son was five he kept talking to a friend named Kasha (make believe). He told me Kasha was 5 and had gray hair. I went with Kasha Gray because there are many Mandy scrappers out there.....and to always remember that cute phase my son went through. I don't know any Kasha Gray's???....hehe Thanks for your sweet comment!
