Escape Kitty welcomes you to the Scraps Of Elegance Reveal for May - Swan Song.
This kit is extraodinary. Really! You have never heard a happy scrapper until you've heard her opening up the box when this kit arrives. Yeah, it rendered Kitty speechless for quite a while. OK, sure you're probably thinking the obvious. Kitty's a cat so she makes a terrible example, but then you'd be misguided. Kitty is up there with the chattiest of people I know. A happy Kitty is one that is opening up this kit.
Make sure you look at the photo carefully to see Kitty with her dance troupe.
So on to Kitty's remarkable story. As you may recall, Escape Kitty and Chena were scallywags comandeering a ship set for Australia. They ended up in Sidney Harbour a few months back. That was Episode #35 . As pirates, they walked with a swagger, communicated using words like ARGGG and matey, and dressed in black.
Once they hit land, they tossed their edgy attitudes into the sea and did some touring, met some friends and had a ball.
Their time in Australia is coming to a close as Fall sets in. They want to make it back home in time to experience spring and summer with family. And sleep in their own beds for a change.... for Kitty, this usually means MY bed.
Kitty has come full circle while in Australia. She started out her tour passing the Sidney Opera House in a pirate ship and she closes out her trip on stage in a ballerina tutu at the Sidney Opera House. ONLY you Kitty! Only you.
So how did this come about? Well, the ballet company was in need of a fill-in for a short time. Someone who could execute amazing jumps with grace and elegance, spin on a dime, prance like a princess and capture the hearts of the audience. Is there anyone BUT Kitty that could fill in? Nope - not by a long shot. So Kitty auditioned and got the part, of course. Coming to a stage near you....
This design is base on the May sketch from Charlotte Jenkins. This is a gorgeous sketch and fun to use. Thanks Charlotte, for your inspirational design.
Kitty used a Dusty Attic Pots and Columns DA0546 and has a tutorial on how to create the look on the column of granite or stone. She also used the Dusty Attic Fancy Labels DA0491 that were cut up and placed around the photo.
A little tulle tucked in here for the look and feel of Kitty's ballet tutu and we are all set.
She created a little tutorial on how to marbleize chipboard as seen in the Dusty Attic column. Go visit her blog. http://escapekitty.blogspot.com/2012/05/escape-kittys-tutorial-on-how-to-make.html
The gorgeous butterfly below comes in the kit curtesy of Renea Harrison. Gorgeous and ever so delicate.
