I am back, today, with a new project using the beautiful Swan Lake kit. I love the versatility of the kit, as it was so easy to use when documenting a picture of my small nephew rolling in the fallen leaves.
I used a bit of mixed media on the background, and just a bit of the colors peek from behind the picture and all the layers (unfortunately, I hadn’t realize that the video had stopped taping while i worked on the background, my apologies!). To create the background, I splashed water drops all over the area i wanted to cover, and then added splatter drops of the Prima watercolor palettes; using a wet brush, i guided the paint droplets until the entire area is cover. Once it dried, I used the Prima Metallic Palette -found in the Clique store– to add color and shine to the background.
I used pieces from the Kate, Joyful, You and Me, and Sunshine papers -from the Gather collection included in the main Swan Lake kit – to create the layers behind the picture. I used the skeleton leaves from last month’s Sapphire kit, along with the newsprint leaves from the die-cut pack on the main kit, and the leaves on the chipboard from this month’s Swan Lake Kit add-ons. I created the title using one of the kraft tags included in the kit. I love all the exclusive printables!, and they are perfect to add small details around the picture. Here are a few close ups:
To finished the page, i used one of my rotary stamps to add more detail to the background; i also added a few of the sequins included in the Swan Lake kit, to add more shine to the page. Here is the final layout:
Like i said before, this month’s Swan Lake kit is so easy to use due to its versatility. It was so easy to due a boy layout with the beautiful papers included in the kit. Here is the video of how the page came together -please apologize that the video had stopped while i worked on the background, and I realized way too late-:
Don’t forget to visit the store to check this month’s Swan Lake kit, and all the beautiful add ons that are available (the metallic Prima watercolor palette is so great to add shimmer to any project). Remember you can use any DT’s code to receive a discount on your purchase.
