What a Gorgeous Day (My Creative Scrapbook)

Hey, friends!  I'm so glad it's the weekend...have you ever had a week that just completely wore you out?  That was me this week, and I don't really even know why.  I'm just glad we can all catch up on some sleep since it's Friday!  Yay!

Here's another page I created using the July Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  The Simple Stories papers are so perfect for sunny summer photos.  I wanted to make them pop off a dark background, so I based this layout on black cardstock.  I used the chevron mask included in the kit with some modeling paste.  Next, I went over it with blue mist and then used a dab of paint to brighten it up even more.

The Prima flowers included in the kit are a creamy color with brown accents.  I hardly ever use them straight from the I wanted it to match my blue color.  Here's how I altered it...

I did this with two of the flowers.  I used the yellow on another layout that I shared earlier in the month.  Spraying the flower with water first really helps the drips of color spread easily and quickly.  And since it's wet, you can smush the petals into a more weathered shape.

Check out the My Creative Scrapbook kits won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)
