1 kit - 2 different (gorgeous) looks

Unfortunately, Monday is upon us again, but there is a little sunshine:  1.  If you are in the US, a holiday weekend is fast approaching, and 2. We've got two gorgeous layouts to share with you today!

Both of these layout were created with our June Scraps of Darkness "Sindi's Summer Day" kit and add ons.  We still have kits left, so if you haven't picked one up yet, there's still time.


The first layout I'm going to share is pure shabby chic sweetness, and was created by our Design Team Coordinator, Lisa Novogrodski:


Lisa says:  I wanted to do something different than what you would expect with a kit of nature so I went in a shabby chic direction. I had been off in a mixed media direction with my work- very grungy with splatters and paper tearing but honestly I get bored with any one style for long periods of time. It took me a bit to decide what direction to go with this one but I think I nailed it! :)
This beautiful photo is courtesy of "Ali Brown Photography" she has an etsy shop with gorgeous newborn items.

I used the BoBunny "Sweet Life" paper in the background. I kept my mixed media work to a minimum. I just did a little stenciling with paste and some splatters with the Marion Smith Color Lab Sparkling Pigments! These are just gorgeous and are in the Color Add On in our kits!
The beautiful summery ice cream colors of these florals make me swoon! Love the mix of Prima and Petalaoo. With the exception of a few tiny roses all were in our kit's Floral Add On.
I used some chipboard from my stash- Scrap FX  and Dusty Attic. I used the Marion Smith Sparkling Pigments to paint the chipboard then I embossed in areas with Lindy's Byzantine Bronze.

The leaves are stamps and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations. 
I also added some book pages torn up and inked for a vintage effect. 

Next up is yet another sweet layout, but this one is more of a mixed media style, and was created by Wilma Voermans:


Wilma says:  The June kit made me happy and reminded me of summer feeling.  For this picture I wanted a light cheerful look.  Products used from the main kit:  Background papers, Bee Happy clear stamp, and flowers.

From the Creativity Add On, Wilma used the Sour Apple Shimmerz Dazzlers Dimensional Paint and the Hot Mama Prills by US Artquest.


And from the Color Add On, she used the Shimmerz Coloringz Mist in Keep Palm and the 24 Karat Marion Smith Pigment Powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope your Monday is a beautiful one.
