"Big Moment" Mini Album Cover: December MMM Kit!

Good morning! I'm here with you today to share a project that I created using the December Magnifique Mixed Media Kit from C'est Magnifique. This kit is packed with a pleasant variety of medias and supporting embellishments making it a strong, stand-alone kit as well as one that beautifully coordinates with this month's main kit. 

Here is a first look at what I've done this month:

"Big Moment" Mini Album Cover
This kit allows for deep, rich colors and textures which I tried to emphasize on my project today. 

My background was first primed with gesso before using the Shimmerz mist. I like to work in threes, so I spritzed the top, right, and lower right of the album cover. On top of that I used modeling paste and a mask to add texture over these same spritzed areas. The Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder was sprinkled randomly on the masked areas before setting with a heat gun.

Using my finger, I applied both the Viva Decor crackle paint and Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam to the edges and corners of the album. I hit those areas with the heat gun as well. Some stamping with the Prima chalk edger and stamp was added randomly throughout.

For the chipboard, I used the TCW Balzer Bits mask from the kit along with some clear embossing ink and stamped over top the mask with the ink before sprinkling on the LSG embossing powder and setting with the heat gun. That way I got the scattered design with just a hint of script from the mask.
