You Inspire- C'est Magnifique June Kit Reveal



Welcome to the C'est Magnifique June kit reveal.

"Dream in Pastel"

This is the last kit I get to design with for C'est Magnifique. I enjoyed my last 6 wonderful months designing for CM and I'm very grateful to Leslie to have given me this opportunity. 

In the next few days I will be revealing all my layouts for this kit and at the beginning of June I'll be revealing my layout for the sketch challenge.



I really wanted to create a layout using the golden colors from the C'est Magnifique June Kit. I made this monochromatic layout using the yellow papers from this Maja designs line, along with the golden Petaloo flowers and butterflies.


Here is a picture of my DD posing for me!! She loves doing these poses for the camera. She was dressed up in a beautiful black and white dress so I printed the picture in B&W and used the yellow tones in this kit!!



I used one of Donna Downeys Poppies mask to create the vines coming down from the picture. I created them using some light molding paste. Once dried, I painted them in golden shimmery acrylic paint which matched the Maja Papers perfectly.


I love this Blue Fern fancy fob watch. Its one of my favorite pieces from their chipboard embellishments. I wanted to create a hanging illusion for this piece as if it was coming out of the picture and hanging down the page. I covered the chipboard in Gesso and golden shimmery paint, too, to match the layout.
