Hey Savages, Kim here to share my second reveal layouts with you. This kit was so fun to work with (I know I say that every month), but it was so diverse in colors. You could do a totally shabby girly layout with the yellows, then turn around and do something grungy with the blues. Plus there are enough neutral colors to please anyone.
So here is a masculine layout I did with the kit. I loved that the blues in this kit were a true navy blue.
I used elements from the main kit and the embellishment kit. I love this photo of my dh. I finally found the right papers to highlight it properly. I heat embossed the chippie with 2 different colors, then brushed it with the inklings form a previous kit.
Next I worked with the project kit. I created this book box to hold my cards that I received from my swirly sisters in a Christmas Card swap we did.
The papers that came with this kit were gorgeous, as were the flowers. I just used some gold embossing powder on the chippie.
Here is the side of the book. I applied a layer of gesso, then some silks acrylic paint in gold. Once that dried I used some kroma crackle on it. It looks like worn leather. I love it.
Here is another side view. I covered the other side using a simpler sheet of paper in the kit. Just look at all the dimension on the book. Again, everything on the book came in the kit, except for the piece of twine I used for the bow.
