Hi! Bonnie blogging here today! I am so excited to be able to share with you some of the layouts I created with the AWESOME April Kit! I have always been intimidated scrapping with the color purple because I thought that the shades had to match exactly, and I learned that that was just not true! Such freedom! The April kit just blew my socks off and liberated me at the same time. I just KNOW you will love working with this kit!
My first layout I want to share is about me. I don't often scrap pictures of myself, but sometimes its just necessary! I love this photo that was taken in Novemeber during a mini photo shoot our family had. Just look how good the purple of my jacket went with the kit! Who knew? lol I just love the Blue Fern Studios circle frame chippie that came in the Embellishment add on, and I used all the cool products from the MMM Kit to colorize it.
To create this layout, I used the Main Kit. the Flower Add on, the Embellishment Add on, and the MMM Kit. From my stash I used: stencil, light molding paste, gesso, Archival ink,distress ink, stamp, cardstock, black marker.
The next 2 projects I am sharing with you, as well as the last 2 later on are featuring 4 beautiful sisters! This one is featuring Madden[Maddy] who is the oldest of the bunch. She is so photogenic! I wanted to do something a little different and decided to use a clipboard for the base of my layout! I wanted to do something really funky and fun using alot of the mixed media elements of the MMM Kit! I painted the base with the purple and blue paints, and then did a white crackle finish over it. I missed some areas so the base colors could come through more. I then proceeded to go crazy using the mask from the MMM kit and paints, and light molding paste and gesso. I then did some stamping. I changed the color color of the blue rose from the Flower Add on, painting it purple. I cut the Blue Fern Chippie from the Main Kit in half and used it in a funky way.

My last layout for today features Blaine, she is number 3 on the totem pole! She is shy and quiet, as she has 2 older sisters to do the talking for her! I wanted this layout to be fun and young and cute, just like Blaine. I used a number of border punches, and kept this more traditional then way out there. Some mixed media, but not too much. There are SO MANY flowers with this kit and the add ons, and I made good use of them on ALL my layouts! Yummy! Here again, I changed some of the blue roses in the Flower Add on, using some of the paints from the MMM Kit.
