First reveal with the Style & Sophistication kit!

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing my first layout I did with the gorgeous Style & Sophistication kit!

I fell in love with the colors of this kit - they are stunning !

The lacey ribbon in the kit is beautiful but I wanted to do something more
with it so I used some gel medium and just before it was dry I wrapped it around my foam paint brush handle and let it finish drying!  So I got this cool ringlet - then I added some gesso.
The pretty blue flowers were the white flowers from last months kit that I sprayed with mist from a previous kit!  I also added gesso to the kit flowers

I used my mask and some modeling paste to create the background then I used my gelatos from the store and then sprayed the image with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist - Midnight Rendezvous Raven from the color add on.
I also 'dropped' mists around the page

Thanks for stopping by!

'Winter Wonderland' kit from Scraps of Darkness

First up is

Baby it's cold outside!

This one I used the Authentiques Glistening papers and stickers!
lots of layers and I used some gesso on cardboard!

I added some gesso and the Ranger Icicle stickles to the flowers and the die cut snowflakes!

I loved the leaky shed chippies that came in this months kit! Wonderful quality!
I used the Bo Bunny papers and the BoBunny Woodland Winter Journal Contents for the layers and title!

I tucked the
Lace Rosette Trim with Pearls from the embellishment ass on under the top layer of paper

I used the Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze Silver Bells from the color add on, on the tree then the Uchida Snow Marker and the ranger icicle stickles.  With the snowflakes I used gesso, then the
