Lucy ~ Scraps of Elegance March Kit

Hello, everyone! 

It's Sandi here with you again today to share another project using the fabulous March Scraps of Elegance Kit "Hello, Beautiful!" 

My favorite colors are earth tones.  Green, peach, rust, teal, cream, gold ... colors usually associated with Fall. So, the Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady papers are so "me." When a kit contains these colors it makes it a real pleasure for me to create!
So, this time I went with a green base with gold text writing, the Alexandra paper. Then I tore long strips of the Grace paper as well as the ScrapBerry Album paper and layered these. After applying gel medium on both sides, I began a small amount of mixed media work .. mainly gesso, mist and beads.

I did lots of fussy cutting of one of the Victoria papers to have some extra floral embellies. Those roses are so pretty! I've added lots of layers here including Kit parts as well as a couple of things from my stash such as chipboard and microbeads. I loved mixing the flowers and tucking in some phrases from the Portrait of a Lady Cardstock sticker sheet as well as a few floral buttons and tags from the Chipboard sheet. 

This close-up is from a little further down the page where I tucked in some of that yummy gold Prima lace from the Elements add-on. For my Lucy title, I simple used some alphas from the Cardstock sticker sheet found in the Kit.

Just to create a little more texture, I've added a piece of chipboard from my stash and embossed it with aged gold embossing powder. Here you can see the fussy cutting and floral layering. Because I had some white gesso nearby, I outlined my fussy cut flowers with it. Several more Graphic 45 Chipboard pieces were worked in.

Because I already had that die cut doily on my desk, I tucked it on as a photo layer as well.  More flowers and microbeads .. and when I was all done, some splattering of white gesso.

I always like to take a few angled shots to show you the dimension, so here is the first one. 

Last one!
