there are any February kits or add ons in the store!

It's no secret that I love purple! When I saw that the kit was going to have Maja Vintage Autumn paper I was ecstatic! I jump right in to the kit and created four projects with ease!

I had to get the Pattern Paper Add-on!! This paper is so gorgeous that I had to make sure I had more than one before I started tearing things up.  I did lots of layering, distressing and misting. For the Blue Fern clock I just painted it with Gesso. Then added mists and paints.The English Lavender Butterflies I created to match the kit. You can find them at my Etsy Shop.
 
 So, I'm addicted to stick pins! Surprise,Surprise...lol! I also love Teacups and Teapots!! I combined the two with my favorite color and made this adorable Teacup Stick Pin Holder! The Maja paper is sturdy enough to hold the shape of the Teacup. I love the way it turned out!

 I took a break from the purples and went with neutrals for this page.  I used the Kasiercraft Art of Life papers. I went light with the distressing and did more layering. The Worn Rose Butterflies can also be found at my Etsy Shop. Come like me on Facebook!!
 This is my page based on the monthly sketch. I did a step-by step tutorial on how I created this page.  You can find it on the Anatomy of Layout Thread.
 Here is the sketch. Be sure to enter the sketch challenge. Anyone can play!!
