September Kit Reveal Projects with Julia

Hello! Welcome to the September Kit reveal!
Today is my first project for Scrap Shotz using the September Kit and add-ons.
 These kits are fabulous and bursting with wonderful goodies.

September's kit features the Transatlantic Travel paper from Carta Bella. 

The design team is using a page sketch from Stuck?! Sketches

Here is my take on the sketch using the September Scrapbook Kit.

I created a mixed media layout  - first I choose a pattern paper from the kit and used matte medium to adhere is to piece of chip board. *Full Disclosure - I don't do a lot of scrapbooking so when I create a layout like this it will usually be framed and hung up in my house - thats why I use the chipboard**
I cover the front of the paper with matte medium and let it dry completely.

When this was done I took some Distress Crayons and applied these through a stencil on to my background.  

Next, I took a palette knife and applied Distress Crazing Medium over my entire page leaving some areas thicker than other. This gave me larger crazing in spots. I left this to dry overnight.

I took my Black Soot and Walnut Stain Distress Crayons and went over the areas with the larger cracks to highlight them. Being sure to get the crayons in the cracks before wiping off the excess.
To create my focal point I used various ephemera from the kit along with 2 photos from my stash.

To create the 'O' in the word Explore I used this cute new stamp from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.

This stamp is brand new and will be available from Scrap Shotz in September and will be included with the September kit.

I was having so much fun creating with this kit that I created another mixed media home decor item.
This time I used a small Etcetera Tag as my substrate.

Be sure to check out the Scrap Shotz blog for even more September Kit inspiration from the Design Team.
