For me, the way to get started is by unpacking the kit and placing everything on the table to decide what I'm going to use:
Next I got out my new bottles of watercolor paint and my (colorless) gesso. First I applied the gesso and after that had dried I drew a few large circles on the white cardstock. I started with yellow, then orange and then red paint and once that had dried I added some blue, orange and red drops:
To straighten the paper I placed it under something heavy for a night and when that didn't help I cut off a thin strip on two sides and glued the white cardstock onto the red cardstock. It looked much better then!
With a Coluzzle I cut circles from two photos and I cut lots of circles from a few sheets of patterned paper:
First I matted the photos and then I divided all the circles over my page in a vertical line:
I made a start with placing embellishments here and there and also stamped a few images from that that beautiful stamp set from Pebbles.
For a nice crisp stamped image I placed a soft mat underneath my paper and stamped the images I wanted:
I fussy cut them both and placed them on my layout.
I really love the pop of yellow!
After adding the rest of the emellishments (die-cuts, chipboards, stickers) I added some machine stitching and wrote a few lines of journaling and I was done! Here are two more close-up photos:
Isn't this kit amazing?! I'm totally in love with the colors and designs!
