"Beautiful" for C'est Magnifique and November Kit Reveal ~ Time After Time

It's time for the release of the "Time After Time" November C'est Magnifique Kit.

Here's another project I've created with this gorgeous kit. Be sure to scroll down for photos and kit information following my project details.

The beautiful woman in this photo is our sweet daughter-in-law's great grandmother.


Tips and Techniques
I cut the Blue Fern Leafy Bough (Magnifique Mixed Media Kit) into two pieces to span across the page.

I've stenciled and misted the background along with ink splatter. These coloring products are from my stash.

I've used several pieces in this cluster from the Flower Add-On. The Prima crocheted doily had the vintage feel I was looking for, but not the pink, so I layered on another flower letting the crocheted portion extend out.

From the Magnifique Mixed Media Kit, I've used the Prima ribbon stamp, and the small black rose from is edged with Prima Art Sugar. I've also tucked in one of the Prima stick pins from the Main Kit.

This gorgeous Blue Fern Leafy Bough Chipboard is painted it with green chalkboard paint, (Mixed Media Kit) then when dry painted with Viva Transparent Crackle Paint (stash). Once dry, I dabbed glue and sprinkled with microbeads from my stash. 

I've layered Prima Ephemera (Main Kit) and cards cut from the Blue Fern Montage Bouquet paper behind and around the photo. This sentiment is also cut from the sheet and the butterfly is from the Prima Ephemera pack. 

This sweet little cluster contains flowers and a Prima 3-D Sticker from the Main Kit, Flower Add On, and Magnifique Mixed Media Kit. This sticker was light and shiny - more of a contrast from the vintage background than I wanted, So I spritzed it lightly with some of the same mist used on the background. You can get a variety of looks and feels from your embellishments by using mixed media products like mists, so don't set aside an element that could be perfect with a little spritz of mist, or brush stroke of gesso. . .
