Happy Monday baddies! I’ve been having so much fun playing with this month’s “Joie De Vivre” kit and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. There’s so many different things you can create with this kit! I don’t know how Wendy does it… she’s da bomb! For today’s layout, I used a photo from Pinterest to inspire me!
When I first came across this image, I immediately thought of using the frames in the kit. I decided to make my first Christmas present! I will be framing this layout for my sister.
For the bottom of the layout, mixed some blue watercolor paint from the September kit with the gesso then gently painted the gesso and paint over the screen. LOVE how smooth the Bad Girls Couture gesso is! It’s so nice.
I let the gesso dry overnight. Then I used the Wax Paste to paint the corners of the Prima frame.
I added the brass clock from my stash then framed the larger frame with the flowers. The butterfly is a Prima stamp I have in my stash. I used markers to color the butterfly then I glued a silver pearl to the center of the butterfly. I stamped the 4/29 on to patterned paper then I cut it into a banner using a pair of scissors.
Here is a closer look of the screen print. Isn’t it beautiful?!
I cut the key out from the stencil package to use as a die cut for my layout. I added some wax to a little copper heart charm I had in my stash then stamped the xoxo onto paper to add to the charm.
What do you think? I hope my sister likes this as much as I do. A lot of love went into this layout. Here is the layout framed. I had to take the metal ball off of the butterfly because it was too bulky. Next time, I need a deeper shadow frame…
Thanks for visiting today!
