Together at the Pumpkin Patch with Noel Mignon

Happy Monday! Today I want to share with you another layout that I created with the 

There were so many fantastic papers in the kit this month, and I instantly fell in love with this one from Pink Paislee Cedar Lane - Arrow Avenue.  I love the pink with white arrows on the A side, and the gorgeous grey woodgrain on the B side!

That little crochet heart from Bella Blvd was perfect to layer behind my embellishment cluster.  I really love the Simple Stories Self Adhesive Brads too! How perfect is that one with the heart?!!

For my background, I added some touches of mixed media.  I did not use gesso this time, so I was careful not to add too much water.  I used 3 different gelatos and scribbled them on a piece of packaging, then spritzed some water, and smooshed it onto the white cardstock. Next I used the triangle feathers from the owl stamp that came in the kit, and some grey ink and stamped around in a circle.  I repeated this technique with my date stamp and another roller stamp from my stash. I also used my White & Blush Heidi Swapp Color Shine and splattered some all over the page.

For this little embellishment cluster, I really wanted to use the blue Maya Road Polka Dot buttons that came in the kit, but the blue was not the right shade for this layout, so instead I flipped it over, and used the white side! Perfect!

I hope I have inspired you to created some layouts using your Blue Moon Kit!!!

Fall Harvest Crop with Noel Mignon!

 Happy Monday & Welcome to Day 1 of the 
 Fall Harvest Crop with Noel Mignon

Please join us this week on the Noel Mignon Blog and over at the Noel Mignon Members Facebook Group to play along for your chance to win some fantastic prizes!!!

Today I am kicking things off with your first challenge

Fall Fashion

My take on "fall fashion" for this challenge is "LAYERS".  As the weather gets colder here in Canada, we start adding more layers of clothing to our wardrobe, so for this challenge I decided to add lots of "LAYERS" to my layout!

I used my Noel Mignon Blue Moon Scrapbook Kit, and some tissue paper to create this layout.  I did a lot of fussy cutting of the flowers from the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane paper that came in the kit.

And here is my finished layout.  I also used some grey and pink watercolour paints underneath my layers to give some depth to my layout.

I challenge you to play along for your chance to win some prizes!  For this challenge you can scrap a layout with lots of "LAYERS" like I did and/or scrap a photo of your favourite fall fashion.  When you are done you can upload your project to the album on the Noel Mignon Members Facebook Page!

Also don't forget to stop by the Noel Mignon Members Facebook Group tonight for another chance to play along and win a prize

Pumpkin Patch with Noel Mignon

First off let me start my shouting out Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! With the seasons changing here in Canada, and the leaves changing colour I was in the mood to scrap a "fall" photo.  My Noel Mignon Blue Moon Scrapbook Kit just arrived last week and it was full of lots of inspiring items to create this layout!

I decided to add some mixed media to my background. First I spread some gesso over the paper, and then when that dried I added some gelatos, mists (I used the Heidi Swapp Butter from last months kit) and some water.

Next I cut the triangle feathers from the cute owl stamp that came in the kit, and used it to stamp some "texture" to the background paper.  ( and because I used a sharp xacto knife and got a clean cut, and can place the feathers back in the owl and still stamp with it! )

There are lots of random goodness layered on this page. How cute is that acorn puffy sticker from Pink Paislee Cedar Lane collection?  For the wood veneer heart, I just added some gelatos and rubbed it in with my finger and a bit of water.

Lots and lots of layers!  I even added a piece of a brown paper shopping bag to the back!

How awesome are these blue glittered foam Thickers that came in the kit?!

And don't forget, there are still a few spots left for the
January - July 2016 subscriptions. I love there there is a Combo Kit option (scrapbook & Daily Diary Kit) because even if you don't do daily documenting, it still makes a fantastic scrapbook add on kit!!!! You can sign up HERE
