I'm baaaa-aaack! Hello my crafty friends, it's been a few rough, stress-filled several weeks lately, lots of different issues one of them being my Mac died a sudden death leaving me internet-less :(
But I treated myself to a brand new computer and I'm here this morning to share my first
layout created with the beautiful June kit from Scraps of Elegance called
'Sunshine and Sweet Tea'.
Starting as I always do by just staring at my kit papers, this time the BoBunny 'Butterfly Kisses' collection, I noticed some light butterflies up the right hand side of the paper 'Bliss'. I grabbed a black watercolor pencil and traced them all out, then went back over them with a small wet paintbrush and it really brought them to life! From there I added lots of black stamping and built up some layers using lots of goodies from the kit.
I used the following items from the main kit, the elements add on and flower add on:
BoBunny - Butterfly Kisses Paper Collection
BoBunny - Butterfly Kisses chipboards
BoBunny - Butterfly Kisses buttons
Blue Fern Studios - Attic Charm Daisies flowers
American Crafts - Mini Butterfly punch
Prima - Salvage District Cling stamps
Dovecraft - Paper Doilies
Petaloo - Coral Botanica Anemone flowers
Here is the June kit:

I would like to enter my layout into a challenge called 'Tender Angel'
that I found on a blog called 'Scrap 72' using this super pretty color palette.
More info on the challenge here.
Here are a few close ups:
I used one the pink doilies from the kit and painted it messily with a black paint dauber
to get it looking really distressed, and also fussy cut some flowers and
butterflies from the different papers.
Thanks for looking and see you soon,
as always I really appreciate your views and your comments,
hugs, Lisa xox
