The Garden Kit, LemoncraftTracie ShumanComment

I am really enjoying my time playing with the Sunkissed main kit and bonus kits for The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is challenging me as a scrapbooker in all sorts of good ways. You should see my scrap room! I have my desk covered in wax paper because I've been spraying, stamping, and painting!

And here is what I've been spraying, stamping, and painting on:

So yes, there was a lot of prep work for this one, but while I was waiting for stuff to dry, I had plenty of time to figure out where I wanted all of the elements to go, which was kind of nice!

Basically, I painted my chipboard letters with a mixture of the turquoise paint and the Magic Powder to give them a cool color and more textured look. I also added a bit of the Lindy's embossing powder to give the letters a hint of shine.

I also used the Lindy's Magical Shaker powder to color the white doily. That was a fun experience, though I had no idea what I was doing. LOL! I ended up with a nice light yellow color that reminded me of a water color paint, and I thought it was sufficiently bright enough to go with the bright yellow of the patterned Lemoncraft paper acting as the mat behind the photo and journaling card.

I also used the Kaisercraft word stamps to create a very light background on the journaling card. I ended up writing over it, but I do like the effect it creates. (And you can also see a bit of the Lindy's Flat Fabio Spray Hibiscus Rose on that card because I was trying to use the spray to stamp and it didn't really work out, but some of the spray ended up getting on the card. No worries! I still liked the effect.)
