The April MMM KIt~!

Good morning!

 Today I'm sharing with you my first project using the Magnifique Mixed Media kit for April from C'est Magnifique Kits. My sister Kelly recently shared a fabulous video with you featuring this kit. I hope you had a chance to check it out! If not- see it {HERE}.

My layout today features papers from the main kit, as well as plenty of goodies from the MMM kit. 

"Snow Queen"
I adore this color palette against this rustic woodgrain paper. The tags and wood embellishments, along with the flowers allow for plenty of nice layering opportunities and interesting details.

I started out my layout with my masking. I used the stencil from the MMM kit along with some modeling paste to create the vertical designs seen on either side of my page. Topped with some of the Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder and set with a heat gun, my masking was complete.

Next came misting and mist splats. I love the almost tea-stained effect this mist creates. 

Masking tape and washi tape were the first layers I created atop my masked areas. They set the feel of the design for me. 

Torn paper layers and doilies interchanged with flowers, tags, and wood icons created plenty of dimension while keeping the attention on this sweet photo of my daughter :)
