Neverland was a hit kit!

I have done three more pages and a card with the Studio Calico kit.  Giving me a grand total of 7 projects!!!  WooHoo!!!  This kit just kept giving me ideas and inspiration.  It didn't hurt that I am in love with all the Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine lines and the SC paper was super cute, too.  Enough chit chat, onto the pages.


I know I've talked about this before, but I added in several things to all the pages from my mountain of supplies in the basement.  What's the point of it being there if it's not going to get used??  On this page, I used the fun Amy Tangerine rub-ons.  I added them to pattern paper and onto plain cardstock which I then painted with watercolors to match the page.  I also used my watercolors on the camera at the top.  It was previously a light gray camera, but now has a lovely pink outlook on life.  I used the mask again on this page.  I thought I would have trouble using it, but it went ok.  Then I added in some sanded cardstock triangles, some washi tape and some gems and enamel dots.  I'm glad I finally got this cute, cute picture scrapped!


The subject of this page is one I'm sure you'll see lots of, my favoritest bridge in the whole world (with the Golden Gate a close second, we share a birthday :) ), the Mackinac Bridge.  Every time we are in the vicinity of Mackinac, we HAVE to stop and get pictures.  I've had this 5x7 sitting in my photo box for years thinking I was going to frame it, but this is a more fitting home, I think.  I really wanted to use that skyline paper from  the Amy Tangerine Yes, Please line, but couldn't think of any city pics off the top of my head.  So, since the buildings are something awesome and man made and the bridge is too, I though it would work well together. Hence the title, Modern Marvel.  And then because I'm me and my page just felt too linear, I sewed on some ribbon ruffles.


This was my page and card combo.  This Seeing Double Two Peas challenge really made me think about how I was creating visual triangles.  This concept was in the back of my mind, but I didn't always pay too much attention to it.  I used color and shapes to make the triangles.  You'll  notice I paid close attention to this on all three of these pages.  Also, using the scraps from a page to make a card always makes me happy. This was a win win challenge!
I had to add a little pocket on the back of the page for the journaling.  I wanted to write it directly on the layout, but once I had penciled it in, it just didn't feel right.    

This was the last page I used the mask on.  I sprayed some cardstock with different color mists.  I cut out a few of the arrow shapes and sewed through the middle of them.  For the card, I mirrored those shapes with stickers and hand cut pattern paper arrows.

Now, I just have a couple more pages to make with my Gossamer Blue kit before I can open up my new kits.  Well, I'll confess that I did already open the Spencer kit from SC.  It came the other day and I just wanted to drool for a second or two :)

Thanks for stopping by!
