December Kit Reveal! My Creative Scrapbook


Hello, all! It's time for the December Kit Reveal at My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club. As always I got to work with the gorgeous Limited Edition Kit. This month's Kit features some My Mind's Eye Joyous papers married with some Kaiserscraft's Yuletide papers and is chock full of gorgeous Petaloo blooms! I especially LOVE these red ones! There is some fabulous Prima resin and wonderful Teresa Collins Tinsel and Co chipboard, stickers and alphas as well. And of course, American Craft Thickers and 3 different kinds of ribbons! Just a wonderful Christmas Kit.

I'm leading off with my Lucy page this month. The photo was taken by photographer Fred Hendrickson in 1942. Don't you love that tartan bow of hers? It must have been a Christmas photo shoot, I think. At least, I'll pretend so. I first added my paper layers to the right after doing some preliminary punch work and set to work on my background. I whitewashed with gesso and then used 2 different masks and molding paste. I've added color with my Prima Color Bloom in Lime Wedge. Not all of my Color Blooms will do the short sprites like they are supposed to but the Lime Wedge actually will and I love that! =)

I had tons of fun coloring my pine cone resin. I used chalk ink and a variety of sprays but it was the LSG Mission Bell Brown that really gave it the color that I preferred. Then I had some random vintage glitter that I had picked up from Michael's that I had for a touch of glimmer. 

Lastly, I added a few more tags and my florals and ribbon as well as a few pieces of chipboard and some of the Teresa Collins Stickers. Then blended with gesso.


"Tis the Season, 2013"

This is sweet little granddaughter Peyton. I hadn't had a chance to scrap this photo yet although I have framed it! I sort of accidentally cropped it the other day and decided to print it out and I'm so glad I did!

I have an Anatomy of a Page coming up next month on this page, so I'll just share a few close-ups  for now.  You can see that I've used the red/burgundy Petaloo blooms again. They are sheer, sugared heaven! And I added in a cream one that I've colorized to be lime. And added my own "sugar" in the form of diamond dust.

I'll be back in a few days with my other 2 projects. I promise to not be late this time!
