The mood board for the November Scrap Around the World Challenge is beautiful and serene.  I chose to use my fav color - blue - and for just a touch of color, I added Ranger's Liquid Pearls in Hot Cocoa inspired by the lovely board.  NOTE:  I also used a technique I learned from Terhi Koskinen on her blog Terhi Koskinen blog.  I used a stencil, but cut out a circle and put that on top of the stencil as I spread my paste - so it's in the shape of a circle!  Check out Terhi's blog - she is an amazing artist!

Hello Everyone!! Today, I am sharing my layouts and cards I created using the most gorgeous C'est Magnifique November 2015 Autumn Whispers kits.

I used twine and cheese cloth from my personal stash.

For my first project - I made 2 cards using the lovely C'est Magnifique November Card Add-On in the Autumn Flourish Kits. 

For my first layout, I used the papers from the C'est Magnifique Main Kit and the oh so pretty flowers from the Flower Add-On Kit.  I cut out the diamond shapes from another sheet of paper in the kit to add color, along with flowers and some of the beautiful buttons in the Card Kit.

The above 3 pictures are my second layout (my son, my sister on the left, my Mom holding my grandson - this was taken in 1998 - my grandson is now a freshman in college).  I hope you take a close look at the Main kit and add-ons because there are so many beautiful items contained within those kits.  I did a lot of layering behind my photo and  I utilized the Main Kit and Flower Add-Ons for this page.

From my stash, I used TH Vintage Photo Ink around edges of circles and SB Circle Dies.

Layout 3 was a fairly clean layout - it was always difficult to decide which pretty paper and flowers I would use.  For this page, I  die cut circles from another sheet.  Again, I used the C'est Magnifique Main Kit and Flower Add-On.

For layout 4, I did some fussy cutting out of the floral designs to the left of the page and a lot of layering behind my image - using papers from the C'est Magnifique Main Kit, the Flower Add-on and buttons and ribbon from the Card Kit Add-On.

From my personal stash, I used the Prima Harlequin stencil, and a bit of ink for the splatters.
I used Beacon's Fabri Tac for all of my projects.

For my final layout, I did some stencil work and added some additional color with some splashes of ink.  I used papers from the C'est Magnifique Main Kit and the Flower Add-On, as well as a few items from the Card Kit Add-On.

I hope you can find a little inspiration from my projects and be sure to check out the C'est Magnifique November Autumn Whispers kits - you will want them all!  

Thanks for taking a peek.

I've always been in awe of owls - they are amazing.  And, their eyes seem like they can see one's soul!  In any event, this page is just for fun.  I didn't use texture paste with my stencil, but, rather, used a copper colored Gelly pen and traced through the stencil.  You actually have to click on the picture to see the stenciling, but I like how it turned out - next time I will probably use black. And, I loved an idea on one of Heather Jacob's pages and scraplifted it - she does gorgeous work!

I am going to enter this into the current 7 Dots Studio challenge - to use wood grain.  The page directly behind my owl reminds me of wood grain and was in the 6x6 Lost and Found paper pack.  Below is the 7 Dots Studio current challenge graphic:

Thanks for taking a peek!

Page details:

Paper:  7 Dots Studio - Lost & Found Collection - both 12x12 papers and 6x6 papers.  I also used the 6x12 elements pages, stickers - all from the collection.  (I purchased the entire collection from The Flying Unicorn).
Metal Adornments:  Flying Unicorn
Ink:  Ranger Black Archival; Copper Gelly pen
Stencil:  Prima Royal Menagerie Stencil 1
Stamp:  Prima Royal Menagerie Stamp 1
Glass Beads:  Finnabair Zinc Glass Beads
Misc.:  TH Tiny Attacher; Twine; Black Brads; Brown Netting; Dyed Cheesecloth
