Reveal Time

The middle of the month really does start to get exciting,  for those that love kits you get to see all the wonderful goodies that Leslie has put together in the Cést Magnifique kits and for us the Design Team members we get to share what we created with all those gorgeous pieces.  

I can tell you its a little nerve racking and exciting rolled into one.  Nerve raking in the sense, what happens if you mess a bit of paper up that you don't have a replacement for {rolling eyes]  and exciting having the opportunity to create with these kits.  So I will stop chatting so you can check out one of my pages that I have created so far.

This month we worked with 7 Dots Studio "Wonderland" paper range.  I have admired these papers for a while and was excited to finally get my hands on them.  I love the rustic vibrancy feel of these paper and thought it was perfect with this photo of my Grandma and her sister.

For the strips through the centre I used Follow The Rabbit paper, this was torn into strips, punched with Martha Stewards bubble border punch.  Royal Garden was used for the photo mat that I first ran through my Grand Calibur using my Grand Dies.  From the Queen of hearts paper i have cut out the beautiful doily patterned.  This was then all placed on the paper Alice...don't you just love these papers cute.

 Other than the Prima flowers from the kit I used my sizzix rolled flower die using the off cuts to make all the other flowers.  The swirl is cut from paper as well, I gave it a couple of coats of textured paste finishing of with the shimmerz from the kit giving it some dimension, I also coloured the chipboard alphas with the shimmerz.  I had never used shimmerz before and I am loving it, this colour was perfect with the papers.

The little white leaves you see poking out are from the applique that was also included in the kit.  And I dyed the white lace with the shimmerz.
