being the very verrrrrrrry lucky girl that i am, i got to have a little sneak peek over the weekend (thanks, g!) and i had a blast playing with this thing! the papers are GORGEOUS and watercolory...the elements (including one of gina's awesome goldfish!) are beautiful...there's an alphabet and a cool set of numbers and these great labels...and...well, how about if i stop talking so you can see for yourself?! :)
for my first digi-composition, i used the wave element as a clipping mask on several of the divine multicolored patterned papers in PSE. i gave them subtle drop shadows in coordinating colors, and layered them with the very handsome shark on a background of sky paper framed in ocean waves paper. the only thing i used from outside the kit was a font called "ma sexy", to give a little advice we all need from time to time: just keep swimming!
in the next one i used a fabulous quote from henri matisse, "i wouldn't mind turning into a vermilion goldfish"! i can't help but think matisse would've been even MORE enthusiastic about such a project if he'd had the option of turning into one of gina's gorgeous embroidered vermilion goldfish, don't you think?!
again, everything you see is from the kit, with the exception of the fonts (2peas platform shoes & mom's typewriter) and an a couple of anna aspnes' asian script brushes that i've layered in soft colors over the blue-green watercolor paper. the green textured paper, sized just slightly larger, makes a perfect frame in exactly the right color!
