fun with Scraps of Elegance

hi! I just got my gorgeous August DT kit from Scraps of Elegance last week and have been enjoying it so much! My first project was a layout with photos taken at Niagara Falls the September before last; I thought the blues and greens in these papers set them off perfectly.

I used homemade texture paste for the stenciling, a little Silks paint for the splashes of bright green (the chipboard was also painted with Silks in Iridescent Green after being primed with blue-white acrylic paint.) I used microbeads on the foam title letters and also added them randomly in little patches on the page.

My second project is an altered birdhouse. I picked it up at Dollarama  ages ago intending to use one of my kits on it, and this one was just perfect with fresh colours and the bird motifs on some of the paper.

I punched scalloped strips for the roof pieces and fussy-cut the birds and butterflies. A little inking, stenciling and die-cutting (leaves) were all I needed to finish the main structure before adding Spanish moss and a few flowers. I have a row of birdhouses above the bay window in my dining room, and this one will fit in perfectly!

Thanks so much for stopping by; I'll be putting at least a couple more projects together with this gorgeous kit, so be sure to visit again! :)
