'Transition' projects by Laura!

Hey everyone!

Today is my turn to share my creations with you!

I love the versatility of this kit...check out my creations....

My first layout I did is of our boys when they were small....


It does not seem like it was that long ago that they were this little


the flowers from the floral add on are fabulous!  I just added a bit of gesso!
I also loved the chipboard leaf stems that I painted with the Jacquard Lumiere Paint in Metallic Olive Green from the color add on.
I sprayed some cheesecloth with mists from previous months for more texture!
I also fussy cut many butterflies from the beautiful prima paper! 




More fussy cut butterflies and strings from the cheesecloth!


The title card was perfect for this layout!


My next layout I was inspired by this months mood board!



here is my 'fall' layout


Our boys were having a lot of fun that day!


The leaves I die cut I sprayed with mists and inked using stuff from previous kits!








I just adore this photo of Cody.....he seems so lost in thought, just sitting at the pond with his blankie

I wanted to make a more 'dramatic' layout to kind of match the mood of the photo



here are a few of the details


I prayed some of the flowers to make them 'red' to natch my color scheme


I painted the vine with the paint from the kit then added a bit of gesso to it and the flowers




I love how the red and the bright colors pop off the background page


A few years ago our boys raked all the leaves into a huge pile and had a great time....


You can tell by the look on his face as to how much fun he is having!

Here are a few of the details

A layout from Renea with our "Pretty Things" kit

Renea is back up on the blog today but this time using the
Scraps Of Elegance kit - Pretty Things
and she used this months Inspiration Board for inspiration

She used the papers from the kit, one for the bottom then a second layer that she cut down and then did some paper curling on to expose the matching paper underneath, some punching to add visual address, and added some burlap string bows and some of the Blue Fern Chipboard from the Embellishment Add On that I sprayed.


She then layered in burlap and more paper layers as well as some of the Bo Bunny pieces that were in the kit, a wooden tag from the Embellishment Add On that I put one of the stickers and Bo Bunny Brads from the EAO onto.


here are a few more of the fabulous details







Thanks so much for stopping by!

Renea's Terrific Transition Kit projects

Hey everyone!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Today I get to share some gorgeousness from Renea using the 
Scraps Of Darkness 'Transitions' kit

First up.....


I love the distressed edges!


She took some Tim Holtz Texture Paste and a Palette Knife  and created a stucco look similiar to that in the photo, then sprayed the edges with Prima Color Bloom Sultry Shimmer Gilded, allowed it to dry then inked over it heavily with some Tim Holtz Distess Vintage Photo Ink to get that really aged look. She then sprayed some lace with some Antiqued Bronze Distress Spray Stain and tucked it under the edges randomly.


She added a layer of distressed and curled paper, 3 layers of Doilies that were sprayed with some of the Antiqued Bronze Distress Spray Stain,  and then added the photo. She pleated some of the paper added that to the bottom of the photo along with some more of the stained lace, and then began building her flower cluster with flowers from the kit and floral add on, along with some things from her stash and some of the chipboard embossed with Lindy's Embossing powder , and birdcage charm that were all in the kit.

Here are a few more details.....

 


next is a super fab pocket journal
