It's time to share some projects I created using the Gossamer Blue May kits. I believe all of the supplies I used for today's cards are from the May Main Kit which is still available. When you click on the link for the Main Kit, you'll notice that the colors displayed with the kit products shown are quite different from what you see in my product picks below.
Tip: What I love about kits is that you can totally use to suit your style. When I get a packaged kit the first thing I do is open the kit and flip through all the products. I immediately turn the patterned papers over to which pattern I like best. This helps me to get a feel for a kit. Then when it's time to work on a specific project using that kit, I pick out a few papers at a time and a few embellishments, all in mixy matchy style. I was totally able to keep my style in mind by choosing the floral paper, the whimsical polka dots, the bright green and some other mixed embellishments. Give it a try, I think you'll get more bang out of your buck with your kits.
Once I had my supplies spread out, I knew I wanted to create some cards. I often will look at what supplies I want to work with then draw out a quick card sketch that incorporates those elements. You'll see with my finished cards that I was able to stay pretty true to the sketch.
Mixed Media Kit (now on sale in the shop) to brush on a swipe of white color using the small flat Studio Brush from the Mixed Media Kit. You'll see on my finished cards what I plan to use the white space for.
Here are the finished cards, my absolute favorites from all of my May Gossamer blue projects. You also see another mixed media card I created. This got thrown into this photo and I'll do another post showing you how I used modeling paste from my Mixed Media Kit to create the fun sentiment area.
I really had a fun time creating these cards. I soooo wish I had more of that delightful floral paper. Okay, off to Jordan's softball game....I'm going to enjoy this marvelous sunshine and warmth. :)
