My Creative Scrapbook August Reveal

Hello Everyone, thanks for stopping by!

 Today I am super excited to share some close up's and details of my first layout using
August 2017 Limited Edition Kit!!

This kit features the lovely St Tropez kit from Prima Marketing as well as some beautiful Blue Fern Studios!

I had a lot of fun creating with this kit! In fact, it might just be my favorite one I've designed with for My Creative Scrapbook!

As you can see with the layout above, I layered and distressed the papers before adding some texture and dimension with some water colors, distress inks and Prima stamps.

 Here is a texture view of all the layout on my layout. I've combined crumbled up doily edges with some gorgeous Prima flowers as well as some delicate pink fussy cut flowers from the St Tropez collection. I also layered in a bit of raffia ribbon from my own collection just for added dimension and detail.

 Another close up

 This close up features a beautiful bicycle from the St Tropez Collection, It just seem to fit so perfectly with the color scheme, but more importantly, I could envision this gorgeous bike riding out in front of these gorgeous homes, it just seemed to fit and add character to my layout! I embellished it with more Prima flowers and fussy cut flowers.

 In this close up, you can see where I've distressed the paper edge and pulled back a bit to reveal the paper beneath the layout. Atop this, I've added another fussy cut flower to add dimension, but to also continue my theme of delicate gorgeousness!! I also added a bit of journaling to the edge of my photo, for those of you who have followed my work over the years, you may know that journaling is something that I'm pretty bad about including on my pages. However, seems how it's one of the most important elements on scrapbooking, I have been trying to make a conscious effort to include it on more of my layouts lately.

This is a close up of the top left side of my layout. Again featuring Prima flowers as well as some fussy cut flowers from the collection.

Another close up!

To finish off my layout, I gave everything a whitewash with gesso to tone down and mute the colors, to blend and make everything a bit more cohesive!!
