49 and Market, The Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing another layout I created it using the April Toolshed kit: Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with papers from 7 Dots and 49 &Market.

Here is my layout:

Even though this is supposed to be a masculine kit, you can do feminine layouts with it as well. I went with a recent photo taken of me while on vacation this past March.

 This kit is has lots of different embellishments to use.  I used items from the main kit, the mediums kit, the bonus paper kit and the embellishment kit. I pulled in a few things from my stash to add as well.

Here are some close up:

 The flowers in this kit are wonderful. They come with these leaves and berries and wire swirlys. I die cut a doily and cut it up to layer all over my layout. I love the metal saying that's tucked into the floral cluster.  l also layered some die cut pieces under my photo.  The background paper and die cuts are from 49 & Market. The cheesecloth and butterfly are from my stash

There are a couple of great stencils to create tons of texture included in the kit. I used the stencil and some modeling to create the background texture. Then I used the mediums kit to create the color.  Once it was done, I had an amazing textured background.

Here you can see more of my layers behind my photo. I also used another one of the metal pieces. I added some pearls to it from my stash. You can also see another piece from the amazing flowers that are in the kit. There is also another piece of the doily and cheese cloth.
