Mixed Media Monday - Country Chic kit!

Hello crafters! Lisa here to share my first layout created with the Scraps of Elegance kit called 'Country Chic' full of 49& Market goodies.

'Let your light shine'


One of the prettiest papers of the Cottage Life collection is 'Branching Out', which I used as my base and then created a messy background with heavy white gesso and lots of watercolors.
I also tried a new way of using embossing powder that I've seen some of my favourite scrappers do. You start with a stencil and use either gloss gel or light gesso, and then while it's still wet,
sprinkle over the embossing powder and dry with your heat gun. I tried it here with the purple Lindy's embossing powder included in the main kit, and I love how it turned out.

Here is the main kit:


Here are a few close ups:





I was so excited to see some silicone molds and paper clay in the Creativity Add On this month! I've been wanting to try them for so long. The molds are so easy to use!  All you do is press the paper clay into the mold, carefully remove, and let dry over night.
You can paint them or use waxes, here I just used a little watercolor on one of the keyholes.


Here is a list of everything I used from the Main kit, the Creativity Add On, and the Elements Add On:

49 & Market paper 'Branching Out'
49 & Market Teal Roses
49 & Market Cottage Life Layered Embellishments
Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder 'Pop Rock Purple'
Blue Fern Studios 'Country Garden' Stamp
Scrapberry's Metal Charms
Prima IOD Keyhole Mold





Now to share another layout created
with the 'Country Chic' kit.

'Cherish'


 I started with some of the 49 & Market paper and added some stenciling with heavy white gesso, some stamping with the Blue Fern Studios stamp, and then added some watercolors, the 49 & Market embellishments, the Blue Fern Studios chipboard,
and finally some resin pieces that I made with the paper clay and molds from this months Creativity Add On.

Here are a few close ups:





Hugs, Lisa
