Bad Girls January Projects

I am LOVING the Bad Girls January Kit:
"Ma Petite Maison"

Photobucket

So far I have made 2 fun layouts with it- and I still have plenty left for more!
Here is what I have so far:

********************************

"God Bless Our Love"

All items used were from the Bad Girls Jan kit or kit add-ons
except: Making Memories Tiny Alpha Stickers;
Flocking; Antique Brass Glimmer Mist

Pattern Paper: Jenni Bowlin Studio; Webster's Pages; Making Memories
Flowers, Buttons, Ribbon, Journal Sheet & Paper Clip:
Making Memories
Grungeboard: Tim Holtz
Tickets: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Metal Hinges: Daisy D's
Crown: Nunn Designs
Glimmer Mist: Tattered Angels
Flocking: Doodlebug Designs



Picture of Matt & me from last fall.
I used the title and lyrics from a Mary Chapin Carperter song for the inspiration.

I used flocking powder on the grungeboard flowers, and
"Meadow Green" glimmer mist mixed with acrylic paint on the stems.
I used several layers of "Antique Brass" glimmer mist on the butterflies.

I love these little hinges that came in the kit!!!
Also, I bent up the wings on the butterfly to give him a ""flying" effect.

I sprayed the title letters with several layers of Antique Brass Glimmer Mist
and used my heat gun between layers.

I also used my sewing machine to make a "frame" border around all my elements.
I distressed all the edges of the paper with either my Heidi Swapp edge distresser
or with my finger nail & then inked the edges.


*******************************

"Zoa Ann"

All items used were from the Bad Girls Jan kit or kit add-ons
except: vintage lace; Graphite Glimmer Mist

Pattern Paper: Jenni Bowlin Studio; Webster's Pages
Flowers, Buttons & Paper Clip: Making Memories
Grungeboard: Tim Holtz
Rub Ons: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Metal Index Tab: Daisy D's
Crown: Nunn Designs
Glimmer Mist: Tattered Angels
Other: Vintage Lace

Pictures of me when I was 2. (1980)
my daddy took and developed these pictures.

I used my craft knife to cut out around all the elements in the PP,
and bent wings to have the elements "fly" off the page.

The lace is gathered and machine sewn all around the perimeter of the page.
I made it "messy" on purpose.


I sprayed the grungeboard with "Graphite" & "Antique Brass" Glimmer Mist


I used the tulle blossoms from the Making Memories "Paperie" line
as 3D accents on the pattern paper flowers & topped them with buttons.

I love these decorative paper clips by Making Memories!


I am really enjoying this kit!
Hopefully I will have more projects finished and posted from it soon!

Happy Weekend!
