Moment in Time by Elena Morgun

Elena Morgun Moment In Time MMK110

Seems like forever since posting a kit, oh wait it has been a while.  Well be prepared… we got lots coming over the next few weeks.

For now, I am ever so happy to show you a layout done by the talented Elena Morgun. Elena featured this mixed media layout and video on her blog several months ago.  A customer of ours pointed it out to me asking about the Silks paints used on it.  After seeing it, I had to ask Elena if she would allow us to turn this one in to a kit. Gracious as ever, she agreed.  This kit is loaded with goodies and trinkets making it a unique and beautiful page that shimmers when light hits from any angle.  It’s a great video to watch to see just how versatile Silks are and how well they are picked up by all sorts of elements. Elena uses the paints on paper, metals, resins, flowers, fabric and more.  Silks magically go on and blend seamlessly for a beautiful finish. See for yourself….

Love that French Lilac Silk color.

You can find a complete product list here.  We had to change up a few of the items a bit due to availability but nothing to substantially change this.

Thank you Elena!!!!

Having fun with it myself, we added a few more products to allow you to create a second page following along with the steps Elena took to create her masterpiece. Here was my take….

Don’t think my photo skills really show the vibrancy of the layout but hopefully you get the jist.  I had a little fun painting the floral elements on the paper with the Silks.

Thanks for stopping by today. Can’t begin to tell you how much we have lined up for the coming weeks.  New product – don’t get me started but let’s just say Prima might be arriving by the truck load.  And new kits… oh you have no idea what’s in store. Some of your favorite Scrapbook Diaries designers as well as a handful of new ones that are going to rock your socks!!!Thanks,

Silks – Finally added to the store

I’ve said it before and I am certain I will say it again – I am a hoarder when it comes to scarp booking goodies.  Sad for a store owner, I know.  I am working on it rest assured.

That disclaimer aside – I added the rest of the Vintage Autumn Basics papers from Maja Design this weekend.

647 heritage  624 i

Additionally, I FINALLY added Silks Acrylic Glazes from LuminArte. These wonderful acrylic glazes have been added to several kits – most probably used by Kasia.  Why? They are just wonderful. When added to paper, they go on smooth and don’t warp paper as much as a lot of other mediums. They are also transparent so they can be blended or layered.

Well, I’ve finally gone and added doe to the store for purchase.  Yeah!  Another big yeah moment is the fact that they have offered two color palettes in 10ml jar sets. These are smaller pods but don’t be fooled – that’s a lot of paint for scrapbooking and mixed media purposes.  Of course, we are also selling the new 2013 colors in the full 1 oz jars.
