Artists @ Work
This is my 3rd layout using the May kit from Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts. There were lots of great papers in the kit, making it very easy to create. I'm a total paper hog, so I love having lots of options. The quote at the top was cut from one of the vintage postcards in the kit. I almost felt a little guilty cutting it - the hand written message on the back was so sweet - a young man writing to his sweetheart a hundred years ago!
I wanted to try something a little different with the Prima lace in the kit, so I gathered the edge to form it into lace flowers. The 7 gypsies key made a fun centre for one.
Love the Glitz Designs rub-ons in the kit. Lots of shapes. The dark colours are completely opaque, while the whites (instead of being completely transparent) are semi-opaque. I really like the look.
This blue paper is the back side of one of the American Crafts papers from the kit. The colour was exactly what I needed, but I didn't want a plain solid, so I embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder and sanded the embossing to show the white core. I also glimmer misted over the top.
