And then here is the page that I made with the kit also ... I painted the brick wall white and then added the crackle to the chipboard ...so cool and then I cut out fence, arrows and black flowers to add to this page and then cut some of the "bling" trip to put in the middle of the flowers.


Here is a close-up:
 
  
Next I decided to do a cat page with those cute little cats ...we just got a black cat...so I painted the background with some thinned out white paint and cut some words out and stars and added some of the crackle to the stars to make them stand out more ....

Here is a close-up:

Then I did one more Haunted Mansion page playing with the fun chipboard brick and layering of the papers and then cut out the titles and bats to finish off the page!!!

"Crushing" on BOAF September kit

Totally "crushing" on all this Gold in the kit ....love love love it!!! Such fun colors to play around with and then oranges, greens, golds are for sure in my everyday pictures!!!
In this page I wanted to cut out and pop up the green chevron paper off the page and then stitch it back down and then another technique I wanted to try was adding white paint to the glitter paste to make it thicker and not translucent ...this was fun to play with!!!



And then here is a closeup of the page:
 
And then my second page that I did was after riding the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train I took a picture of their cottage and all the lovely greenery around their house ...I painted and used the glitter paste on the wooden leaves and then cut out and layered the leaves on the page!!!



Here is the close-up of the page:

 
And one more close-up:

 
Thanks for looking at my pages!!!

Here is one of the pages that I did with this kit:

 
First I painted the letters yellow and then added the glitter paste on top of the letters and the other chipboard pieces ...so fun!!! Next I added to the background of the page a little glitter paste to draw your eye to other places on the page ...and yes I used some of my white water rafting pictures for this page!!!

Here is a close-up of the page:

 
Then for the other page that I did I wanted to add the gold stripe page to the top of my layout and then layer flowers down the side of the page ...then added a few dots of glitter paste to the bottom of the page to add the bling all over!!!

 

And then here is my close-up:


Thanks for looking at two of my pages!!!
