Let The Wind Kiss Your Face

7 Dots, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Hello, scrappy friends! 

Sandi here with you today sharing another DT project created with the January Garden Kit and bonus kits from International Scrapbook Garden Kisses and Snowflakes.

For this layout, I opted to go cold and wintry and decided to go with more of the gray, silvery tones of the Kit with just a wink of teal. When I look out the window of my craft room, all I see right now is gray.  While I'm anxious for Spring, there is beauty to be found in Winter's colors. 


I did less mixed media on this project but still primed with clear gesso and then added streaks of the Glitter Snow. For color, I used white gesso and some of the teal Prima chalk edger. I prepared the Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces (Blizzard Word Set and Dripping Hearts Lace Border) with gesso and then painted them white. To make the title a little more chilly feeling, I used some white embossing powder from my stash. 

Also from my stash, I've used some paper doilies and cheesecloth for layers. 


The Snip Art chipboard Frame was also painted white and used as a layer, as was the Dripping Hearts Border. For more layers I used the Emphemera from Prima's Zella Teal collection.  A pretty silver flower was created with the singles in the Kit along with a brad from my stash.
In the background, you can see some of the stamping done with the KaiserCraft Clear Stamp.


More beautiful Prima flowers from Zella Teal along with a tiny vintage Prima flower.


I've tucked in more ephemera and used the wonderful Snowflake brads from the Main Kit. And although, you wouldn't look for butterflies this time of year, I've added one for color and texture.


Loved embossing this little guy and mounting him on a strip of ephemera and foam tape.


I've scattered some of the KaiserCraft Teal Pearls around and dabbed everything with a coat of white gesso. Lastly, some watered down gesso was splattered about.

If you don't have a Kisses and Snowflakes kit, I hope you'll try to grab one before they are gone.
