Nathalie back with you today bringing you a bit of Summer inspiration using the new and super beautiful Skyland scrapbook kits! If you have yet to check them out, then head onto the Citrus Twist Kits page to see all the beautiful papers, add ons and exclusives these kits are packed with. But what better way to show you the kit, than to share with you a new creation featuring the new Skyland Scrapbook kit and mixed media kit
As soon as I opened my little box of goodies, i fell in love with the Echo Park alphas, and the old agenda page that is included in the Scrapbook kit. Trina is always adding that special piece to each kit.
If you have seen my work before, then you know that i kinda love to create beautiful messes as a background for my pictures; the Vicki Boutin Acrylic Pop Paints included in the Mixed Media kit are so easy to work with, and match the colors of the papers to a tee!
Well speaking of papers, I had a hard time deciding what papers to use in this page, so I chose to layer pieces from pretty much all the papers in the Skyland kit. I even used a left over piece from a paper (sneak peek time!) from a paper created with the digital PL cards from a project coming later in the month. The cuts in the paper give a little window to the mixed media in the background!.
My idea with this page was to document a picture (one of many) of my teenage kids playing in the little kids playground. It is a secret (well it was a secret) that they love to spend hours away playing in the swings, slide, etc., and always try to schedule our walks around the lunch hours when small kids are usually eating lunch. The best way to tell this story was to create the little slit on the background, conceal that gorgeous black and white Pinkfresh Studio paper in the background, and use the folding parts of the cardstock to mark the time on the agenda sheet. The large epoxy circle was just the perfect detail to document this story.
Now to balance all the layers of paper, i chose to create a similar slit on the opposite side of the page, and add my title there. I reached for the Conversation Starter Stamp to create the large title on this page. These alphas -included in the Scrapbook kit- are to die for, and all the heart eyes go to the entire sheet of puffy hearts also included in the kit, so i just sprinkled a few around the clusters of ephemera and cut apart pieces that frame the picture. But let me show you a more in depth look on how this page came together in the following video:
How fun are all the layers in this page! I really hope this serves as inspiration to break into your Skyland kits as soon as they arrive at your doorstep. I am not an enabler, but trust me you want to add a few of the add on kits to your order. They are so worth it.
As always please contact me if you have questions on how this came together. Remember to stop by the CTK Shop to check all this month's goodies.
