C'est Magnifique Kit Club - Giveaway and a Few More Creations

Hi Ladies,

"Beautiful Dreamer"

For this LO I decided to used a pink and grey colour palette. I tore, distressed and fussy cut the papers and higlighted the torn and grunged edges with silver glitter glass. I love to play with colour, and decided to mix some of the Silks and Pigment Powders to create a few different shades. To create the medium pink for my splats, I mixed the Raspberry Wine silk glaze with a little white paint and thinned down with water. I coated the large chipboard doily with gesso, then mixed the Raspberry Wine Silk Glaze and Chiffon Pink Primary Elements with some water to paint and splatter over the top. When dry I randomly stamped with a Script stamp.

Items used on this LO: January Kit, Mixed Media Kit, Flower Add On, Embellishment Add On - resin heart, pink rose trim.
Items from my stash: Gesso, Viva Croco Crackling, Silver glitter glass, paper leaves, Prima ink - old rose, Martha Stewart border punch, Crafters Workshop script stencil, stamps.

One of the items in the mixed media kit is a sweet little canvas frame, which I was going to use in an OTP project, but as I had so much gorgeous product to work with, I decided to create a large canvas.  The beautiful Blue Fern butterflies were the inspiration for this canvas.  I had a lot of fun creating layers with mixed media on my background using pp's, Luminarte silks and primary elements, gesso, masking, stamping, punched elements and a bit of mesh.  Once I was happy with my background, I layered various flowers and embellishments which I altered with paint, diamond dust and microbeads.
I coated the Blue Fern butterflies with gesso, then highlighted with Luminarte silks and primary elements which I mixed together until I was happy with the colour, then added a recycled pink diamonte earring to the body of the butterfly.  My title was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I coated the title with glue and while still wet sprinkled with some pink german glitter glass.  
The mixed media kit has some beautiful Prima metal embellishments.  I coated the metal flower with some Viva Inca Gold in silver, then highlighted the edges with some of the mixed Luminarte silks and primary elements. The Prima flowers Blue Fern doilies and floral diecuts were also altered with the Luminarte paints and powders, which I mixed to create some mists.

Items used on this LO: January Kit, Mixed Media Kit - Luminarte silks and primary elements, Prima flowers and metal embellishment, Embellishment Add On - Heidi Swapp frames, Blue Fern B'fly, alpha stickers,  Flower Add On,
Items from my stash: Pink German glitter glass, Diamond Dust, Martha Stewart and EK Success border punches, Silhouette Cameo diecut title and stencil for masking, Memory Box floral die, Prima stamp, gesso, pearl embellishments, recycled bling earring and book pages, mesh.
