The C'est Magnifique June Kit has been released and I created this layout using the kit. This sweet little thing is my niece Callie, who is about to turn 3 years-old. When she was a little smaller, she loved to climb in this open-area of the television cabinet. I couldn't resist getting a photo of her.
I chose to go with the neutrals in the kit since the photo has such neutral colors. I added some texture to the background by spraying three colors of Prima Color Blooms on my craft sheet, in the position I wanted them on my background paper. I then put down my stencil so it could get wet. Next, I carefully placed the stencil, mist side down, on my background paper. I got this wonderful color transfer.
I used the rest of mist on the stencil for a page in my art journal. I never throw it away! Then I cleaned off the stencil, and put it back on my layout, matching the pattern. Using some heavy gesso, I used the stencil to apply some dimension in a random pattern, but not filling in every area that was misted.
Here's a look at the entire June Kit from C'est Magnifique kits:
This amazing kit was so much fun to use. I wasn't able to put it away yet because I still have plans to create a couple more layouts with it.
Enjoy your weekend! ~ Valerie
