I really went all out with this kit and the product I had to use. To begin, I matted my picture with the crushed velvet paper that was in the kit. I felt this made the black and white picture pop! I then matted it the second time in black cardstock Then I went to my Silhouette machine and cut out a lovely flourish using a deeper red paper that was given in the kit. I of course cut it up and place the pieces around the picture. Then I took this awesome die cut that was in TWO LAYERS!!! that was in the kit, and painted the first layer White, I then took the music note rub-on and added that to the white die cut background. Then I took the second layer of the die cut and painted it black and then adhered it to the top as it was meant to be. Of course I had to add some bling. So I took the jeweled ribbon that was provided in the kit and strung the beads onto wire so that I could place and bend the jewels ever how I wanted. Yes, the flower came in the kit and I had to use it!! With that said I altered one of the flowers to be smaller so that it would be more uniformed on the page. The sticker title was given in the kit with a few extras from my stash as well as the red stickles that made the circle about the photo. I then added my own journaling and BAMB!! my layout is finished.OOps, I almost forgot the finishing touch the fun black feathers added the right amount of sass to the page!!
Wow, I know a lot of steps right? Well, it was all worth it for this is my favorite picture of me and my hubby on the beach in Florida!! Man the wind was strong that day!
