My Creative Scrapbook June Kit Reveal, part 1

"The Best of Times"

It's Reveal Day at My Creative Scrapbook and I'm here to share my first two projects with this fun Kit. The June Limited Edition Kit features Basic Grey's Tea Garden, Carta Bella's Moments and Memories, a fun BG Fresh Cut Flower Kit along with lots of fab Prima products .. flowers, metal trinkets, wood foil embellishments and a great new stencil! Something for everyone! 

My first project is based off the sketch below by friend, Vanessa Waller. An all-time favorite sketch! Of course, this is my "Lucy" page for the month! Photo credit, tumblr. Per my tradition, I used my Memory Box bubbles stencil along with some Prima Color Bloom mist. Everything else is from the Kit, save but a scrap or two of gauze for texture. This Kit is a fussy cutter's dream! 

Here are some close-ups:



Next I did a non-media page .. more or less. There some gesso dabbed here and there but that's about it.  I thought to watercolor the background paper but in the end opted not to. I did have fun with the flower making kit from Basic Grey. Although  I considered mixing things up, I went ahead and assembled them as per the package photos but made them my own with lots of paper manipulation. I'll have a tute on that later this month. Some additional flowers were cut from the packaging itself. Then they were all dabbed with white gesso as was my background. 

The photo is of a sweet grandson on his third birthday. The quote was already on the photo when I received it, so that made for a quick title! Lastly I did a little punch work including a few punched butterflies for some added interest and to direct the eye. 

More close-ups:

Okay, that's it for today!
