Welcome to Poetry en Prose. This month's kit from Swirlydoos is so full of rich colors. I love the paper which is from KaiserCraft.
I had a lot of fun making this page. A fellow teacher at Miss Arts, Stacey Cohen, taught a class on creating a really cool shadow box. This is my attempt at creating the shadow box. I love the dimension and all of the nooks and crannies that lend themselves to having little treasures tucked in all over. The flowers in the month's add on include Petaloo and Prima. I had fun embellishing the Dusty Attic Birdcage too!
Those of you the know me and my DD, know that she loves riding the flying swings and I love capturing her pure joy on film every time she comes 'round. There is something about a carnival that brings up so many great memories; the music, the smells and the kids all laughing and screaming. Good stuff! I absolutely love it when a kit not only gives me insanely gorgeous paper, but when I am also given colors that contrast and POP! Check out those little blue flowers! AWESOME!
The Technique kit add on was full of resist papers and some fun and funky mist called Inchworm! LOL It is that really cool green on the tag. You have to get some. Seriously.
This is for the monthly kit sketch that is provided for each month's kit. I have to be honest here, this is my 2nd attempt at the sketch. At first I was so inspired by the idea of slicing up a photo and then when it came time to do it...well, nothing was playing along with me. LOL I used some of the resist paper that came in our Technique kit. This is a picture of my DD when we went to visit Boldt Castle last year. She was sitting on a massive stone bench on the even more massive veranda at the castle. I found that the picture seemed to get lost by being all sliced up so I added a rhinestone circle to bring attention back to the photo. She had so much fun exploring the castle that day.
I changed things up a bit with this month's canvas. My DD wanted me to make one for her so she had a lot of input in creating this. We designed the dress and she really wanted that Dusty Attic scroll at the top. She wanted a ponytail...and on and on. LOL I had a little trouble with perspective on this, but it's not supposed to be perfect right?! The dress and the fussy cut flowers came from the kit papers.
