Sandi's debut kit reveal!!!

Lets get to know a little more about our newest Scraps Of Elegance Creative Team Member and a very good friend of mine
Sandi Smith!



My name is Sandi Smith and I live in Newfoundland, Canada with my wonderful husband and 2 great kids, Rick is 22 and Claudine is 14.I did my first layout in January 2010 and was immediately hooked! I am obsessed with all things associated with scrapping and I am always in “scrapbook mode “, constantly looking at things in our everyday lives for sources of inspiration.
I love to tear, wrinkle, sew and to get messy with gesso, mists and paint. I also love to refinish antique furniture and my latest love is painting girls on mixed media backgrounds.
I don`t feel I have a definite style. My creations can be vintage, shabby chic or loaded with paints ,sprays and gesso…depends on my mood and what inspires me at that time.I tend to gravitate towards creating 12 x 12 layouts but I also love stepping outside my comfort zone and trying something new!
I am so honored and excited to be part of this AMAZINGLY TALENTED team and look forward to sharing my SOE creations with you. 

Of course we had to ask her a few Get To Know You questions!

Check out her first creation  based on this months sketch!

 

This is my big brother and me back in 1973...love this picture! I used papers from the Carta Bella At Last Collection, and did some punching and fussy cutting. I applied some molding paste to the gorgeous Prima Stencil included in the kit and then started adding color with the Lindy's stamp Gang Mist that were in the color add on. I also used watercolor paints and some stamps from my stash on my background. Here are a few closeups...









      
I tore some of the papers in strips, fussy cut some circles, and added some of the pretty lace to build up the layers behind my photo. 


Also included in the kit and addons are loads of Prima flowers that I used to build my flower cluster. The Embellishment addon includes a package of Prima wooden embellishments. Just a little tip...to make them last even longer, I cut the wooden leaves in half  and tucked behind the flowers. You could also do that with the wooden flowers.



Thanks for stopping by!
