Mixed Media Monday 3/20: ATCs and a layout!

Welcome everyone!


Kerstin here and I want to share with you my second idea for our Scrap of Darkness February Kit 'Our story'.

I was inspired from the Prima 'Love Clippings collection' in this Main kit  and I thought this notecards are a perfect background for a set of four Artist Trading cards (ATC).It's one of my first tries with this amazing little size.

I created a very romantic set in vintage style and added some old photo cutout's, the suitable chipboards (Blue Fern Studios), butterflies dies, some pieces of lace and gauze, bookpaper, and all were only leftovers. You need no more for this format.
 

you can use the notecards as basic , but also for some cutouts, here the little roses with a clock face


 clear stamps from Bella are really magic, I think as water or dew drops for a lovely effect on your background


on the right side you can see a rub on from Prima from our January kit, a metallic foil accent


As well as on my last layout, I used the beautiful Magical powder from Lindys Stamp Gang for a small gauze - it gives a wonderful altered effect.

I hope you will like my inspiration. Many thanks for your visit!

And the next gorgeous project we're sharing is by Lisa Griffith:


Hello girls! I wanted to share my very first layout created with the BEAUTIFUL February kit from Scraps of Elegance, called 'Watercolor Wishes'.



Oh I just can't tell you how much I loved this month's kit, the kind of kit where you're unwrapping everything and just so excited to get creating! The 49 & Market papers are just gorgeous with really lovely color combos, nice and thick, too, and can hold up to lots of mediums. And the floral add on this month was perfectly matched, with a really cool 49 & Market vine of flowers that I bent into a circle here on this page. I fussy cut some of the birds and flowers and tucked those in too. The kit also came with some really pretty colored round stones that added an unusual touch. I also used a little wooden title from our last kit. And again using lots of watercolors in my background, love how this turned out.

Here is February's kit:

So in love with these beautiful Prima brass birds, I also added some Prima glass beads.






See you soon, more to come with this lovely kit,
