Shine: A Layout using the Tres Jolie July Scrapbook Kit

Happy Saturday, crafty people!

I'm sharing my first project made with the July Tres Jolie scrapbooking kit, featuring the lovely Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper collection. For this layout I used the June Sketchabilities sketch.

I started out by cutting up the "wood" panel background paper in strips along wood lines, then I used a paper distress and added some brown distress ink along the edges for added dimension.

For my layers, I added the doilies from the kit, some paper layers, and added the Prima Marketing resin frame to the picture. I topped of the layers with butterflies I cut from one of the papers, the cream and purple 49 and Market flowers, as well as some small coordinating flowers from my stash. I also added the title "Shine" from my stash as well, which is a Dusty Attic piece that treated by adding some wax paste.
I added some stenciling of bricks to peek out from under the design. I used white crackle paste, then lightly used a foam applicator with brown distress ink over the crackles after the paste was dry.

I treated the Dusty Attic chipboard scroll by covering it with a thick layer of the Nuvo drops from the kit. While wet, I added a combination of gold and black embossing powder while the Nuvo drops will till wet, then used a heat tool to dry it- I let it bubble up to create this distressed old metal look.
I added the leaves under the flower cluster before gluing on the chipboard to the paper to create more dimension.

For this bottom cluster I added the smaller Prima resin frame, a tiny purple flower from my stash, and a Lemoncraft flair button to repeat some of the features from the main cluster on the layout.
