Happy Wednesday Friends!
Today I'm sharing two creations using the awesome November kit "Thankful" from:
I needed some fall photos  and I recently took this photo of my son at my moms house.  He's standing by a "Burning Bush".....She has about 6-7 of them in her yard and they're beautiful at this time of year.  I decided to go "mixed media" on this page using "Lindy's Stamp Gang mists available with the add on and some of my watercolor paints.....
I stippled some gesso for texture throughout the page before adding the colors....
The "Prima" wooden leaves are included in the kit and I sprayed them with "Lindy's Stamp Gang" color add on and added touches of watercolor paint also.
I used a stencil called "Americana" by Plaid - The stencil was in the wall décor section at Michael's.... I used "Golden" matte gel and mixed it with color by "Lindy's Stamp Gang".....
I then traced around the stenciling with a Faber Castell pen and a Painters pen.  I painted around the stenciling with watercolors and mists....
My next creation is a totally different theme.  I was inspired by the cameo from "Webster's Pages" and the wide lace (included in the kit) to create a Victorian/vintage piece.
 I wanted to stick with pale blues/greens for this layout.  I used the "Prima" Stencil included in the kit.  I also added some stamp work using "Something Tattered" stamps.  I added a few pieces of lace from "Tresors de Luxe".....
I stippled on some gesso throughout the page to soften the look.
I sprayed the lace with "Lindy's Stamp Gang" to get the aged/antiqued look.
The pearl flourishes are from "Zva Creative" included in the kit....They are the
perfect accent for this layout....
Stop on by the ~Scraps of Elegance~ online store and grab this GORGEOUS kit!
