You are magic!

Hello crafty friends,  Melanie back here with a layout about my bestie. She's not in the picture though, but you can see this cute foldable superhero bag I always carry around in my handbag she had sewn for me last year.
This month's kits are once again so lovingly put together, everything matches perfectly and I love all the small bits and pieces that come in the kits. For this layout I wanted to use one of the frames from the Embellishment Kit, the pompom trim from the Pocket Life Kit and the tassels from the Scrapbook Kit.

I went for a clean and light layout and started by adding a frame to my picture. The black makes a nice contrast to the white background and it has the perfect size.

The 'MAGIC' matches the colors of my picture so well and so I decided to make the title 'you are magic', because she is, and went for a horizontal design. I added the journaling on a label from the cutaparts and placed one of the gorgeous golden hearts from the foam stickers underneath my picture to fill up the space. 
But before I started glueing things down, I added some black splatters using the black Pinkfresh Studio watercolor from the shop and Kira's awesome technique. She puts the color on a stamping block, adds water and sprinkles it over the page by using a brush (thanks Kira for this great trick).

To balance it all, I cut the striped paper from the Pattern Paper Play apart and put the stripes on the left-hand side of my page, added some washi and the pompom trim and went over it with my sewing machine to add a little more interest.

I also placed the adorable embroidery embellishment on the bottom left using foam adhesive for more dimension. But before I glued it down I added one of the tassels just for a little something. I attached the other two to the frame using some white thread.

To bring in more of the gold, I added some stars to my cluster and finished off the layout by doing some stamping, I used the stamps that come in the Scrapbook Kit.
