Love// Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout

Hello lovely ladies!  Thank you for stopping by on this fun, monthly blog hop.  I always enjoy being apart of it.  I enjoy viewing how others use the contents of the kit each month.  I know it inspires me.  For today's layout I wanted to definitely use the exclusive patterned papers and I couldn't deicide which one, so I used both.  If you are interested in the kit, go to Clique Kits site and enroll.
I did 3-4 inches strips of each 12x12 and alternated the placement.  I did enjoy the opposite side of one that said Blah Blah and made them into corner pieces.  It is a bit busy, but at least the colors are pastel.  I then take my Prima Marketing stencil called Doily #2 and some heavy gloss gel for the impression.  I used the gel like I would if it were modeling paste.  It works the same except this dries to a glossy finish and it adhere glitter to it really well.  So before it dries I added the gold glitter to really have it pop with all the detail.  
I then apply white gesso to the center area so that I can apply more mix media.  I add Color Shine in pink and Distress stain in cracked pistachio with the packaging technique.  I also add a few splatters with both colors as well.  The ephemera on the layout is also exclusive to the kit this month.  Clique kits joined Pink Fresh Studio and made an ephemera pack that coordinates well with the kit.  The colors of this month are more on the pastel side but it also featured the Goldie collection from Studio Calico.  

The wood veneer is from the Hello Love collection and I used black ink to color it.  The flair button also exclusive to the kit is sitting on a bed of black tangled thread.  I add a bit of journaling to the layout to finish it off.

Here are the rest of your stops for the blog hop.  Thank you for stopping by.
