Today is the August Pep Rally for this month's kit: Meadow! Yay! To begin with, I hope you came from Jasmin's blog HERE. If not, you can start back at the Clique Kits blog by clicking HERE.
Ok! Let's get started! I made this page originally for Mixed Media focus week, but forgot to post it (oops!) so I'm sharing it now! I really enjoyed getting messy with some acrylic paint and watercolors to make this page!
There's an amazing watercolor resist paper included in the kit this month and I just LOVE it. I colored it in with watercolors and then as it was drying, I cut out each individual shape. I took it all apart and then layered it all back together! I thought since there's a wide gold border around the shapes, I could trim them easily. I really, really love how this turned out!
Of course, I had to add some color to the background, and I chose this beautiful plum purple acrylic paint. It's a color I don't use often, but there's a lot of it in this kit so I took the chance to be a little bit daring! :) I think the flower cluster POPS off of the page with that painted background.
I finished off the layout with some stickers, some of the beautiful diecuts included in the kit, and some machine stitching! There's lots of texture on this page, and I love it.
