Hi all! I was so in love with this month's kit from International Scrapbook Garden. If you caught my last two layouts (here and here), you know how versatile the goodies in the Colorburst kit are. I chose more muted tones for the last two layouts to satisfy my own scrapping mood, but I wanted to do something with the more colorful elements in the kit. The Creative Embellishments chipboard title "Color My World" was perfect, and of course perfect for a picture of my own little rainbow maker, the painter of the colors in my world.

49 and Market, 7 Dots, The Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my last layout I created using the April Toolshed kit: Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with papers from 7 Dots and 49 &Market. I have had an amazing time designing with these kits, but due circumstances I must step down from the team. So today I leave you with a very special layout.

Here is my layout:

This is such a special layout. It is one of the last photos my dad and brother took together before dad died a few months later. Even though dad was so thin, you can still see how much they look alike.

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:

  I used lots of the chipboard on this layout. I took the pebble panel and cut it into pieces. I layered it around the layout. Because I had used the other black pieces of chipboard I wanted to keep these pieces black as well. So I gave all the naked chipboard a coat of black gesso, then I went over it with black distress ink.

Here is more of that great chipboard. I love the clock and gear corner piece. It was a bonus that they were black. Yes, I snuck in a flower.

Here you can see that great clock/gear corner piece. I didn't have to do much to the background as the paper was already distressed.

 Here are the kits I used for this layout:

It has been a pleasure designing for International Scrapbook Garden. I will miss these masculine kits. They have truly pushed me beyond my comfort level. Thanks so much Tracie for the opportunity.

That's all I have for today, thanks for stopping by.

You Color My World

7 Dots, The Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hello! I'm Vivian Lake and today I'm sharing with you a new layout using International Scrapbook Garden's toolshed kit called 'Colorburst'.

There are so many interpretations with this kit! Love every little detail in it. You can make a crazy color combo page, or even just a monochrome page and love the results either way.

With this page, I wanted to use every color provided in the main kit and mixed media bonus kit. My family and I recently stopped by Cadillac Ranch on Route 66 in Texas. These cars are standing straight up, in a row, and are weirdly part of our modern American history. People not only stop by to visit, but to spray paint the cars as well. These cars are located on the flat plains so the wind is absolutely relentless and intense as well.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Aren't these flowers beautiful!?

I envisioned the background a certain way and ended up with a "hot mess". LOL! So I felt the need to add lots of embellishment to tone down the background. I did use leaf die cuts made with my Silhouette Cameo here.

The mixed media kit comes with Dazzlerz 'Pucker Up Pink', which is a shimmering dimensional paste. It's an incredibly strong and powerful color!!! I applied black gesso to the title and added two different embossing powders. Polka purple is part of the mixed media kit. Lindy's Desert Moon Copper Teal is from my stash.
