Dream ~ April Scraps of Elegance (Lucy layout)

Hello there, scrappy friends! 
Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing another project featuring the April "A Song of Spring" Kit from Scraps of Elegance. This Kit is built around the gorgeous 49 and Market Scents of Nature paper as well as Blue Fern Studios Spring Parade. 

For my base layers I've used the Scents of Nature Fly Away paper as my foundation and layered it with Beauty Abound where I tore the corner to reveal that gorgeous dark purple from underneath. 

My mixed media work consisted mostly of stamping with a variety of 3 different stamps and misting. No texture paste on this one! Just some clear and white gesso here and there. Of course, I had fun altering the Memory Hardware Resin Frame by Frank Garcia (found in the Elements add-on) with the Art Alchemy. paint and Artisan Powder unclouded in the Color add-on. 

My photo layers (Lucille Ball) were ephemera from the Elements add-on. And of course, lots of florals from the Flower add-on. I've been in a bit of a monochromatic mood with my flowers lately, so  on a couple of this month's projects you'll note less variety but deeper color intensity by staying with the same color familiar or neutrals. 

My frame is turned sideways and tucked under the photo and ephemera. I've been generous with flower laying and completed my composition with the addition of color using the Spectrum Noir pen in Fig from the Creativity Kit. 

A single gorgeous butterfly from the Wings and Things 3D pieces found in the Elements add-on kit. The watch piece is from my stash of goodies. 

For my title I snagged a die cut from my stash and colorized it with the Spectrum Noir pen. 

Here's a close-up of the lower right focal point created with ephemera, florals and a Flair from the Main Kit. 

I love creating dimension. This is really a gorgeous page but it was hard to capture that in my photos. 

One last dimensional shot showing how I added water to the color to create some flow. Coating your paper with clear gesso in the beginning helps the color to move with water application.
