december jbs mercantile kits have arrived! while they are decidedly christmas-y, they are also very versatile. i enjoyed the red and green color scheme that i don't use very often, but chose to work with a black and white photo that is unrelated to our current holiday season. i especially love the mix of patterns here. they all blend so well in this tight color scheme.
jbs mercantile december papercrafting kits (plus a little kitty flatback i've been hoarding).
photo: taken on my iphone 5. edited in pictapgo using the lights on and powder filters.
story: gabriel has been into drawing cartoons lately. he is accompanied by his favorite kitty. the journaling is on the library card in the pocket.
design: i went with a loose grid in a patchwork quilt look. i added lots of stitching to enhance the homespun look.
technique: i used my blender tool and both stick candy and seed packet inks to color the manila library pocket. i then stamped the exclusive star stamp with versamark and used red embossing powder on it.
