"Cousins" Details for ScrapThat!

Weddings are always such wonderful days, and the presence of a photo booth at the reception can add a little extra fun. Here I've scrapped a photo of our Daughter, Maria, with her younger cousin in whimsical attire at Elizabeth's wedding reception photo booth. 

The ScrapThat! June kit is just perfect to capture the
fun feel and colors in this photo. 


I used the May Prima BAP Sketch for inspiration:

This page is my sample for the ScrapThat! June DT Summer Stenciling Challenge.
I'd love for you to stop by the ScrapThat! Forum and add your project with stenciling. 

Tips and Techniques:

Prima Goodies ~ The ScrapThat! Kit included some fabulous Prima goodies including this amazing zipper flower and alpha set. My title is set on a chippie from my stash that I painted and inked. The spool was fussy cut from the Sunrise Sunset paper. The white Prima rose, was left from a previous kit. 

Distressed Mesh ~ The black mesh in the kit was so fun to work with and I used it on all three of my kit pages. I simply painted it with white gesso and when dry scraped off bits of the paint to distress. 

Vellum Flower ~ I was a little stumped at first as to how to used this vellum included in the main kit with the wonderful and vibrant chevrons. I wasn't sure how the linear design would work for a flower, but love the way this turned out. I cut the layers with my Sizzix Tattered Florals die, then crinkled the vellum offsetting the petals as I adhered. I tucked in a length of eyelash yard from my stash along with a large rhinestone. 

Doilies ~ I cut doilies from kit paper to layer behind the photo using my Cricut, Bigshot, and fussy cutting.

Distressing ~ is done with my favorite tool, my Donna Salazar Distrezz-It-All. 

Mixed Media ~ I used my Sunrise Sunset stencil first, then spritzed several shades of glimmery mist across the page. I wiped the mist off the stenciled molding paste to help it pop. 

Chipboard ~  I used several shades of mist on this DA chipboard piece from my stash.

Butterfly ~ Just a touch of rust ink on the edges of the wings makes this little beauty pop.

Gems ~ I pulled some of the gems off of the sheet in the main kit and scattered them across the bottom of the page. I used tweezers to dip them in glossy accents to adhere.
