October Inspriation from Joyce

Welcome to the week-end everyone!  If you haven't yet signed up for our monthly "Bits & Pieces" giveaway, the link to that post is in our left sidebar.

Today it is Joyce's turn to share a couple of her layouts using the October kit, "Last Kiss of Summer"

"Hope" by Joyce Lawrence

I’m still working on my best friend's scrapbook for her and here she is receiving an award in 
primary school in Argentina. How cool is that medicine cabinet in the picture?  

The Wild Orchid Navy Aster flowers were dipped in a gesso mixture to lighten them up and then they were spritzed with a lavender mist and inked. The cute little beehive elements on the while blossom flowers were plucked and spritzed with the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sapphire mist in the September kit and used as elements elsewhere. Some kit papers were torn in strips, dry embossed and inked. Some vellum was dry embossed and spritz with the same Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist. A Crafter’s Workshop clock mask was used with some light molding paste on the top and bottom of the page.

"Where Angels Go" by Joyce Lawrence

 The picture is framed using a Martha Stewart punch and then pleating the paper. The Fabscraps Circle Frame was broken in pieces and used sporadically on the page. The Prima Bravo Pink Flower was taken apart and misted with the Shimmerz Bed of Roses, and a pile of glue was set in the middle, and pink beads were sprinkled on top. I love the centers in the Prima flowers from the September kit and thought I’d replicate that same idea. Using the Martha Stewart wild flower punch, I created a stencil and used black ink and applied sporadically on the page.
