Today I'm going to share another one of my projects using
ScrapThat! August Kit

The color scheme of this kit is just so soft and delicate, It's really very pretty and great for all those shabby chic projects you'd like to create!

One of the layout's I created using this kit is extremely shabby chic, and probably one of my favorites from this month.

This is a layout of myself, I really liked the way the sepia photo's matched with these soft peachy tones.

The papers in this  month's kit are Kaisercraft's Charlottes Dream and just super yummy. I distressed them using my Ingvild Bolme Distress Tool, before I started layering. 

This close up is of the left side, I wanted to share with you the faux bricks I created using a piece of cardboard I had lying around from the backside of a paper pad. I simply cut out rectangles free handed, no need to be perfect as real bricks never really are. I lightly inked them using my Vintage Photo TH Distress Ink Pad, before I dry brushed some white acrylic paint in them. I think next time I will include some gesso for texture. Anyhow, I just created an offset pattern to give them a look of reakl masonary work and it was really as simple as that!

This close up is of the center, I wanted to showcase the pretty punchwork I applied in the layers. You see that lattice design in the center? I created that using a Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch and trimming off the scallop design at the edge of the punchwork before lining them up to create one giant accent piece for my layout.

On the right side I added more flowers and faux bricks, I love the way the lace bow and bead strand top it off and seem to tie it ll together. If you look to the right of the photo you will also notice my tag with hiden journaling, which I need to complete before I share.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my page and are inspired to try the punch or brick technique on your own projects!!
