Memories ....... by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today for my third post for January, and I'd like to share with you another layout .... "memories"

 This snapshot...was taken while I was visiting Angkor Wat in Cambodia... I absolutely loved seeing these temples in Cambodia, it is on my wish list to go back one day and spend more time exploring them...  I used a few different stencils with pan pastels and inks to create my background, and then added some extra detail with some stamping...

 I decided to use the black Monochrome Mini Kit as the base for my page.... this is the first time I have used one of these new kits... and I have to confess, I love them, so easy to put a layout together, Amanda really has done half the work for you... I think I may have to invest in a few more of these...lol...  
Here I have used one of the flair buttons with the wooden heart, which I coloured using some Inka Gold along with some of the coloured wire. and one of the little Hydrangea Petals, along with some of the sequins and a Journal it's minifetti.... all of which was in the Monochrome Mini Kit.  I have also added some of the mini heart sequins, these are not part of the kit...

 also in these wonderful kits you will find a sequin bow and the kits are wrapped up with the cotton twine... Here I have taken one of the Acetate Butterflies (not in the kit) and chopped it up and added it to the sequin bow  to create a 3D shinny butterfly...

Just a close up to show how I inserted the wings in-between the bow parts to create my 3D butterfly... check out how cute it looks...

 here is a close up of more of the minifetti from the kit... perfect little sayings...

 So a close up of the large daisy flower, more of the Hydrangea Petals, sequins, resin flower and coloured wire... Here you can also see the second flair button from the kit... and I also have scattered some more of those mini heart sequins, that are not part of the kit...

So these Monochrome Mini Kit  also contain a coloured doilybitty bag and a wooden frame...  I coloured up the frame using some Inka Gold... 

 Just one last  pic to show off the stencil work I did... I am loving this Prima stencil at the moment...

Now don't forget the Cyber Crop is on this weekend, and I hope to see you all pop in to The Scrap Suite for some fun, inspiration and challenges... 

till next time
Happy Creating
