Mojo Monday!

So excited to do this week's Mojo Monday!

For this LO, UHK Gallery "Mademoiselle" paper. I used some 13 Arts Gesso, stencil and Shimmerz "Pop Art Pink" on the background. 

 I really wanted to make a more simple layout using this paper as it's just so gorgeous
 and I didn't want to cover it up!

I reached deep in my stash to use up some older Prima and Flying Unicorn flowers. The canvas banners are from Maya Road.

The Prima resin butterflies and wire 'love' embellie are from previous kit.

Hope you play along this week with the fabulous sketch!!!

Happy Spring!
I'm so excited to share with you this month's BAP!! The Your Passion,Your Art kit for April is over the top AMAZING and just so fun to work with! I hope you got a chance to pick one up!
Here is the layout that we will be building!
Grab your coffee, tea or other beverage and let's get started!

First grab a couple of sheets of paper. I'm using 2 sheets of Maja Designs Vintage Spring Basics from the main kit
Next distress the edges of your top piece
3. Using the 13 Arts Mists from both the Mixed Art and Main Kits, splatter some it around the page
4. Using 13 Arts mist and spritz the Dear Lizzy 'today' die cut from the Main Kit
5. Use 13 Arts Primer from the Mixed Art kit with your chosen stencil, cover most of the page. Dry with a heat tool or let air dry
6. I pulled out the Technique Tuesday banner stamps and stamp randomly around the page.
7. This next step is optional. Add some clear matte gel in various areas and add some 13 arts glass beads just for some texture. Dry with heat tool. TIP- When drying glass beads or any other similar element be sure to not focus in one place too long. Keep your heat tool moving around. Once dry- add a little more clear matte gel and repeat. I find it helps set the beads.
8. Wrap the blue twine (Main Kit) into a circle to 'frame' the photo. Clip a little clothespin on the top-set aside
9. Adhere top page to bottom and curl edges in random places.
10. For this I used the Petaloo Vine that is included in the Mixed Art kit. I cut it into pieces
11. Next place photo and glue down. Take 'today' die cut and glue above photo
12. Place and glue vine pieces as shown
13. I used the Faber Castell Big Brush pen to add some dots on my title
14. Now finish by adding your flowers and creating large 'v-shape' cluster. Add some self adhesive dots

I hope you liked following along!! Can't wait to see what you create!
