HIMCR # 86 "Use a Kit"

Happy Saturday!!!!
Today at HIMCR we are making a project using a kit, well you know that is up my alley after already having so much fun with my new Paper Made Bakery Kit!!!
I got inspired to do a scrapbooking layout with my oldest son Ryan, Ryan is a province away from me and I was missing him. He is majoring in Biology at UNB .. I couldn't be more proud.
Join us in this challenge by linking up here!!! We would be delighted to see you and make sure you tell the girls what an amazing job they did on their projects!!
Here is my project using Paper Made Bakery Kit.
I made all the flowers and rosettes from the crate paper from the kit, I then put Martha steward flock on them and embossing powder!!! It was something I never heard of but had to try, curisoty got the best of me and I love them! I used grey flock, gold and Pearlustre Carnelian embossing powder . There is a lot of embossing with these colors including around both base pages , chipboard pieces and letters.

I added pieces of flourishes  and lace  to the base and painted it with snow white acrylic pain... I did not try to be neat about it which is the effect I was going for.

I splashed Tim Holtz ink  on the base in certain areas and used my foam brush to make marks on them using the straight edge of the brush, I also loved how this turned out!

He is certainly One Of A Kind!!
Have a terrific day and I hope to see you at HIMCR!!!

Naomi~This is adorable! I don't know if I even knew that you had another son. Perhaps that was one of the things we had in common? I love that this gives our children something to look back on & remember. Hugs~Patti
