Plum Crazy Prills

"Lucy's Hope" with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, everyone! 

Sandi here today sharing another project created with the January Kisses and Snowflakes Kit from the International Scrapbook Garden. Along with all the fabulous add-on kits. 

This time it's a Lucy page!

My photo is a publicity photo of Lucille Ball from her early movie making days.  I love these more glamorous photos of Lucy because they show a different side of her from what people usually associate with her. 

My base layer is 13 Arts Dream paper. It's so beautiful but was hard for me to capture with our rainy days here in Texas. I primed with clear gesso and then sprayed and dripped a generous amount of the Shimmerz Grape in the center. My photo collage got larger than I expected and covered most of it. Story of my life! So, I added more. For texture I've used the Prima stencil and the Lilac Nuvo mousse. To increase the depth, I did some random stamping as well.

The 7 Dots tags were used as layers along with some of Prima Zella Teal ephemera and cheesecloth. Next I began layering my other loose embellishments.

The wood veneer snowflakes add a wintry feel.

All the flowers in the Kit and add-on co-ordinate in such a great way with all the papers.

"Hope" ephemera for my title. And a heart from the Main Kit because don't we all "love" Lucy?

An example of the purple Prills added as another layer.

"Dream" with Sandi Clarkson

Hello there, everyone!
Sandi here with you today.
Thanks for bearing with me during the very long process of packing, moving and unpacking. It's gone on far too long ... but we are getting settled.

I'm here today with my DT debut with the Kisses and Snowflakes kits.
I have recently joined the Design Team there and will be designing with the Garden Kit.
They have such beautiful Kits with gorgeous supplies including bonus kits ... and focus on the "harder to find" international paper collections.

So, here is my first project where I'm using the 7 Dots Boardwalk paper as my base. Love this paper!

The photo is of my granddaughter MacKayla working with her horses in the bitter Kentucky cold. I hoped for a frosty look, so there is lots of shine that doesn't quite come across in photos. After doing some background mixed media work using the Bonus Kit supplies, I started layering and adding my embellishments.

Here is a photo of the Main Kit and a link to the store.

Here are some close-ups:

On the background I've used clear gesso to prime, then pushed super heavy gesso through the Prima Stencil included in the Embellishment Bonus Kit. Then I added depth with the Main Kit Kaiser Craft stamp using both black ink as well as the purple Color Philosophy found in the Mixed Media Kit.

I added color of course, using the Shimmerz Vibez in Grape Escape from the Mixed Media Kit.  It pairs beautifully with the Purple Prills from the Main Kit. I grabbed embellishments from all the various kits but was sure to include the Prima Zella Teal Ephemera.

I adore the wood veneer snowflakes from the Main Kit! I've tucked them in amongst my flowers which are from both the Main Kit and from the Flower add-on.

Scrapberry makes the most divine Flair and these are included in the Main Kit. And there are lots of pearls and rhinestones to embellish. with.
