COCOA DAISY KIT CLUB
I have not belonged to a kit club in years. After spending a couple of months thinking about it and looking at options, I decided to join Cocoa Daisy. I was pretty much decided, and then when I saw a sneak of January and saw that its theme was based on Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, that pretty much clinched it. I am a huge JA, and especially P&P fan, I just couldn't resist.
I received my first kit last week. I LOVE it. The mix of patterned papers is brilliant.
My first project is a scrapbook page based on the Cocoa Daisy Sketch Challenge. I am working on a large album of a trip I took to Italy 20 years ago. We took slides back then, do you know what those are? I finally got around to converting them to photos last year so I could do my album.
Anyway, here is the sketch:
And here is my page:
I used the Basic Grey Serenade Peacock, Basic Grey Serenade paper/canvas flowers 8/kit, October Afternoon Farm Girl label stickers and Basic Grey Serenade Alpha stickers. All from the kit.
Some of the pieces got a little bit beaten up when I had to remove everything from the first page. I am not much of a planner, I put the page together originally and then decided I wanted to add a little bit of mist. Rather than masking everything and misting, I tried using the technique I have seen where you just put small drops of ink onto the paper. OMG, it was one of those things where I kept adding to it, trying to make things better and it just got worse and worse. I make mistakes on almost every project I make. In fact, I pride myself on being able to fix the mistakes and most times improve upon the project.
Not gonna happen this time.
I was cracking up, by the time I was done my page looked like it was diseased.
Wanna see? OK, but you can't tell anyone; I will deny all knowledge!
Luckily I had a piece of the same BG background paper in my stash. Misted it properly, before adding anything, tore everything off the original, and put another complete page together. I don't think I will ever learn.
Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,
