Hi there! Nathalie with this week's 3-to-Inspire. The newly released "Perfectly Posh" kits are so gorgeous, and packed with so many goodies, it was so easy to pick three prompts to inspire this week's' project. Here are the prompts:
- Incorporate the Maggie Holmes Crepe Fringe
- Add butterflies
- Use fussy cut elements
This is how i combined the prompts in this project:
First, the background was created using a combination of the liquid watercolors from Pinkfresh Studio available at the CTK shop. I used Aquamarine, Blue Sky, Bubble Gum, and Yellow to create the watercolor look on the background. Make sure you check the watercolors at the store, they are so easy to work with ;)
While the background dried, i used papers from the "Perfectly Posh" Scrapbook kit to back the letters in the cut file/title - this cut file is available at the CTK store for free-, as well as to add layers behind the picture. In addition, i took some time to fussy cut a few of the flowers from the Simplicity paper from PinkFresh Studio included in the kit.
A bit of foam adhesive was used to attached the title to the page, next i tucked the picture of my kids at the top corner of the title, and started to embellish the layout using all the fussy cut flowers, pieces from the cut apart page -available for free at the CTK store- as well as stickers and washi tape from the embellishment kit.
Lately, i have been creating pages with hidden details, so i decided to use some of the crepe fringe-included in the Perfectly Posh kit- as part of my peek-a-boo element in this page. For this, i cut a piece of the Pinkfresh Studio Simplicity paper. Next, i carefully glued the the fringe at about half an inch from the edge of the piece of paper, then trim the excess fringe. Since i wanted to have a long piece of fringe at the bottom layer, i continue to glue the fringe next to each other until the entire bottom edge of the paper was covered. Then used a different color of the fringe just to add an extra layer above the one just glued.
The paper with the fringe was glued to the bottom of the page. Here i carefully distress the bottom edge of the cardstock so that the fringe border would show, and decided to add a butterfly from the foam stickers included in the "Perfectly Posh"kit to bring the eye to this detail. So a few more butterflies around the page just bring the page together.
A few stamped sentiments from the kit's stamp, and the "So Very You" Traveller's Notebook Stamp complete the title, and add a few more details on the page.
Love how this page turned out. This month's kits, add ons, digital files are amazing, so it made this page a true joy to put together. And now it is your turn to use this week's prompts to create a page of your own. Remember to share your finished projects on the Citrus Twist Kits Fan Page on Facebook or on social media (tag us using #citrustwistkits). I cannot wait to see what you create with the prompts and all the August kits (they are so gorgeous!!)
