C'est Magnifique March Sketch Challenge - My Boys - Kaisercraft/Pion Design/Prima/ Petaloo

I played along with the March Sketch challenge at my 
new kit club C'est Magnifique, using product from the 
March Kit, papers from Pion Design and the die-cut
paper from Kaisercraft, with Prima and Petaloo  blooms.

Here's a peek at what arrived on my doorstep...

Along with a list of contents {there is also an online
 store that stocks additional supplies that ship free 
with your order too}.

Kits are $38 plus postage and all details relating to subscribing
can be found HERE - so far I have created 3 pages using
 product from the March kit {although not exclusively} and
 imagine getting a couple more so 5 pages is not bad & I'll
have leftovers for sure!

Everything on my page comes from C'est Magnifique
except for the brown ink, misted gauze, journaling pen,
concertina flower embellishment & clear bling.

I am IN LOVE with the Prima resin embellishments
and purchased this little birdie from the store.

I misted some gauze and laid it under by floral sprays,
using quite a bit of clear glue to secure it.  I repainted
a peach-coloured concertina flower using paints that
matched - brown, white & blue.

I purchased the brown alphas from C'est Magnifique in 
addition to the green ones that are supplied with the kit.

Mitra Pratt said...

This is one of my favorite pages of yours. Firstly you scrapped yourself which is awesome. Secondly, the flower treatment you did on the side really was simply amazing! Somehow you got a mossy yet shimmery look that I really admire. I wish you were next door so I could wander over and see in this in person. Seriously, give yourself a huge pat on the back for this layout. Impressive!
