I have a wonderful guest designer I am showcasing this month as well - allow me to introduce Monica Longard!  Monica has been a loyal customer with W2 Scrapbooking for several years and I have truly enjoyed seeing her art evolve.  Her work on this month's kit is simply amazeballs!! Monica has a great blog that you really should check out here.  Monica also has a YouTube channel, so please take the time to check it out as well.

Let's get started on a few of her projects - for more pictures and details, be sure to head over to her blog!

Circle Canvas

supplies from the kit:  clear gems, Vintage Pattern, Sticker Sheet, TH Found Relatives Cards,  Mini Round & Square Mirror Embellishments,  Regal Adornments,  Metal Hangers,  twill,  Shabby Chic Die Cuts,  and Metal Filigree embellishments

"I started off spraying and inking the canvas, using the Prima Color Bloom Sprays I got at W2 Scrapbooking, as well as the Viva Decor Rusty Paper. I then added some flakes and sprayed it with sealer. I spread out all the assorted goodies from the kit and went to work on the canvas! I took the vintage photos and tore/distressed them, and placed them (no idea how I decided where to put them - it just comes to me! LOL) I then made flowers using the vintage pattern and placed them on the canvas as well. I also used the various elements from the kit to make a little mini burlap canvas to attach to the larger canvas."

Square Canvas

supplies from the kit:  8x8" TH Paper, Paper Goods (vintage images), TCW Stencil, clear gems, Vintage Pattern,  Mini Round & Square Mirror Embellishments,  TH Regal Adornments, Metal Filigree embellishments

"I started this canvas by ripping the 8x8 paper, distressing it and collaged them onto the canvas. I also address some joint tape on top to give them more texture. I then used Tim Holtz Distress Sprays to add color to the canvas. After that I used a wonderful Donna Downey Scribble Stencil and glitter paste to add more texture. I again used the vintage pattern to make more flowers and added them and other embellishments to finish the piece. Just a fun note - the "clock" on the page is a door knob I got at my local hardware store and had my husband saw off the back so I could use it on the piece!"

Art Journal Page

supplies from the kit:   TCW  Stencil, Vintage Pattern, TH Mini Flashcards

"My last project I did a journal page because I was inspired by the stencil! It came out completely different than I saw it in my head, but I am actually happier with it than I think I would have been if I had gone with my original idea!!"

"I started the pages by gessoing them, then I used my Modeling Paste and the GREAT stencil to add texture to the page. To add more texture/background I added pieces of the vintage pattern. Next, I used the great Gelatos I got from W2 Scrapbooking and using a technique I found on the Faber Castel blog, I colored the page in sections and then used water to blend the colors. I added a little spray sparkle and then sealant on the pages, after which I added the Tim Holtz Elementary Flashcards. I then used Viva Decor Modeling cream to create the "tree"! For finishing touches, I stamped some birds and a butterfly onto the instruction sheet from the pattern and also added some black (you always have to have black!!) with a Pico Writer and some pink Bo Bunny Glitter paste to accent the stencils."
