Hello crafty friends, it's Lisa here to share my very first layout created with the Scraps of Elegance May kit called 'Mix'd Media'.
My best friend at work came in one day and showed me this photo of her mother that she had found going through her mother's things, and I just love her happy expression and that dress! Can you imagine wearing something that fancy? I knew I just had to scrap it, and the pretty pink papers by Blue Fern Studios were the perfect backdrop. I'm planning on buying one those shadow
box frames at Michael's and giving it to her as a gift :)
Here is the May kit, it's already sold out, so the best way to make
sure you don't miss out is to become a subscriber, trust me,
you will never be disappointed! Melinda always has the most wonderful
Add Ons too, the Floral Add On always has such beautiful flowers,
and compliments everything in the kit.
Here are a few close ups:
See what I mean about the Floral Add on???? Such pretty Prima blooms
that perfectly match this month's papers.
I created my background by using lots of watercolors and then over the top I added some stenciling with the Kaisercraft stencil and the DecoArt Media Texture Sand Paste. Then I added some of the Blue Fern Studios chipboard, Prima Metal Trinkets, and the Maya Arts Ivory Ribbon that I ripped in half, colored with some pink 13 arts ink, and then scrunched it up down the side of my page.
I also used the Blue Fern Studio stamp, 'Halftones',
and the Tim Holtz Botanical Ephemera included in the Elements Add On.
I also wanted to share my second page created with the
beautiful Scraps of Elegance kit called 'Song of Spring'.
More yummy 49 & Market papers and flowers...I adore the deep blue of this paper, and the gorgeous blooms and leaves of grass are just so pretty.

Here are a few closeups:
I used a lot from the Main Kit, the Elements Add On, and the Floral Add On on this page, the Nuvo Sweet Lilac Drops, the Kaisercraft Butterflies Printed Washi Tape, and the Ultimate Crafts 'Rambling Rose' Ephemera Die Cuts.
I used a few pieces of 2 Crafty Chipboard, I love those swirly words, and a little 'Fine Leafy Bush', you can find their products here.
See you soon,
