She is back with a new Kit!!!!  Gabrielle Pollacco brings us another fabulous kit in her signature purple and green color combination. This time she mixes up some Blue Fern Studios papers and combines the Deja Vu collection with Autumn Anthology….

Magical! Am I also just a little prejudice? Maybe. I am honored that Gabrielle used a pic of my little munchkins. This was out holiday card photo and it works so well with the color combo right?  Certainly my Ultimate Photo! 🙂

Thank you Gabrielle!

As always I had a great time following Gabrielle along on her video tutorial. the kit comes basic and complete. Not much of a difference in the two – just the Purple Rain Creameez Watercolor Pot from Shimmerz to add the highlighting/shading. Gabrielle also uses Peeled Paint Distress Ink for the green on the Ivy.  I didn’t include in the complete version as I figured so many probably already have. You can of course add it extra as we offer it in the Mini Ink Pad. Other green inks will work equally as well.

With some added papers handsome more flowers and chipboard…. Here’s a sample of the bonus page I came up with…

Love how it compliments Gabrielle’s page. I should have added in to directions that I had to change up my process a bit.  The Meg’s Garden background paper has a coated finish which does not allow the watercolor to seep in so I just left it alone without added color.  I fussy cut elements from the Blue Fern paper. With the remaining piece of paper (a grayish color), I cut out a large photo mat and painted the Purple Rain over the entire piece to create the purple for the base of my photo mat. Great little trick for blending in the colors you need on your layout.

So there you have it! Hope you like as much as we do!

More coming in the days and weeks ahead. We got a huge box of Dusty Attic chipboard and will be adding to the store very soon. A lot of fun designs! New kits… Too many to even know where to begin. We will have a mini album kit from Delaina Burns and another kit from Rachelle Sigurdson very soon!
