It's time for the second set of February kit projects to be unveiled, this time by me, Rosie...

Let's start it off with the sketch project based on this Creative Scrapbooker Magazine sketch:
and here is what I came up with:

A pot lid was used as a template for the circular alpha border.
Here are a couple of close ups of the layout:
Books are fussy cut from kit paper and pencil is adhered with foam tape.
Circle mat directly under photo mat is hand cut fringe which  I hope you can see fringe is gently curled upwards.

Do you remember the American Crafts Knockouts Border punches? Yes I still have some, they survived my last craft purge because of their compact size. I used them to punch all borders after cutting various strips of patterned paper.

Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Faded Jeans was applied to watercolour paper with a mini distress ink tool. I then flicked water on the paper and dried with a heat tool to activate the oxide effect. I love the soft shades of the oxide ink. After trimming the photo mat and border punching the side edges I added a white punched border to make the photo mat pop.

I punched butterflies out of the leftover inked watercolour paper, applied washi tape from the sticker pack to white card stock and punched butterflies from that as well. Butterflies are then accented with Nuvo Crystal and Glitter drops.

If you haven't seen the exclusive 12x12 die page created by myself, here is a look at it in the following layout:

The new Tim Holtz Oxide inks were used in the top left circular cut out with a Tim Holtz stencil, kit stickers, alphas and fussy cut hearts from one of the patterned papers are adhered over the ink. These inks apply so smoothly.

I used the die cut openings as photo frames, embellishment pockets and a journaling spot.
The large opening has a shell my son picked up on the beach in Rye, it's backed with an acetate pocket filled with glitter.

For this next layout I had envisioned a sort of wash of watercolour using Distress Oxide ink but it wasn't looking so good on the first layer so I changed the plan and instead flicked the ink on with a paint brush. I smooshed the ink on a craft mat, dipped a paint brush in water, picked up the ink with the wet paint brush and then flicked it on the page. I used a heat tool to dry each colour of ink before moving on to the next one. Paper strips of varying sizes were layered over the ink.

Here's the finished layout with the addition of stickers, alphas and a simple border strip on the right side to balance it all out.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects and thanks for stopping in 😊!
