Tracey's August Featured Projects


It's Tracey here to share the details of my projects created with the August Kit. This is my farewell post for ScrapThat! I know Kaitlyn's beautiful ScrapThat! Kits will be missed. I've enjoyed the opportunity to work with them each month this past year. It has been amazing working with each of the talented and sweet designers as well.

If you are interested in purchasing ScrapThat! contact Kaitlyn Eves at Keves1@telus.net.

Here are some close-ups and details of my projects from the August Kit:

"Love Sweet Elizabeth"
MK
I just adore this sweet photo of our Elizabeth when she was a little babe with her lovely smile and silly hair sticking up. Yes, this is the same Elizabeth in all the wedding layouts I've been creating. This page was created with the main kit only.

This white focal flower was created with the rose petals included in the kit. The pink and purple flower surrounding it and around the page are also included.

The flowers are dry brushed with gesso and microbeads added to the printed flower centers for dimension. 

I cut off a strip of the Pink Paislee circle mat, painted it with gesso and crocheted lace onto it. I divided a few of the pink flowers for mini rose buds and placed one of the kit lavender pearl into the center of the larger blossom. 

Under the photo I tied a scrolled jewelry link from my stash with white organza ribbon.

I fussy cut the floral frame from this gorgeous Maja paper and hand stitched a border.

This medallion piece is another jewelry finding. I cut mini banner flags and added a rose but and roses cut from the kit lace. 

This kraft Maya Road butterfly was altered by topping with Fran-tage embossing powders and glitter. 

Kit lace tucked into the corner embellished with kit pearls. 

"Celebrate"
MK, EAO, FAO
Such a fun photo from Elizabeth and Andrew's wedding.

I used the entire package of pearl trinkets in the EAO kit along with decorative links from my stash to create this jeweled banner. A tutorial for my Twine Wrapped Corrugated Heart can be found here.

The FAK and MK flowers created a gorgeous cluster. I stenciled with molding paste under the flowers and tied a four looped bow with white seam binding.

The top of the cluster with more MK and EAO Kit flowers. The DA Chipboard and May Arts Leaf Ribbon is from my stash.

This sweet butterfly is in the main kit. I brushed on Stickles and added a pearl flourish from my stash. Machine stitching and random punches are added around the border.

Butterfly Tags
I created these two tags from the gorgeous Maja collection and items from the MK, EAO, and FAO Kits.

These Maya Road butterflies are so beautiful and take mixed media well. I painted with gesso, then crackle medium. I let the crackle dry overnight, then rubbed ink into the cracks. I stamped flourished onto the corners of the tags in coordinating ink. This flourish was die cut and painted with Ice Stickles. The purple rose was dry brushed with gesso.

I used the same mixed media techniques on this butterfly, but used yellow and brown inks. This flourish is included in the kit. I just cut off the bird and set aside for another project. I added kit pearls which are painted and inked to distress. On the background I added molding paste over a mesh, then touched with ink to bring out the dimension.

I added the kit lace to the bottom of both tags and for this tag, tied dyed seam binding and placed an inked kit flower in the bow.

I dyed seam binding and wrinkled ribbon to coordinate and added in white mesh ribbon to tie at the top of each tag.

Thanks for dropping by to see my work with this gorgeous kit.

The August kit and all remaining retired kits and add-ons can be purchased in the ScrapThat! Store.
