P for Pretty Posies (and Peg)

Spark some creativity Saturday @ the Kraaft Shaak

Hello and happy Saturday, 
Today is bittersweet. It is my last official post as a design team member for the Kraaft Shaak and yet I am planning future posts to share with the community. If you don't know what I'm talking about be sure and check out the Kraaft Shaak.com and the Kraafters Kommunity on Google plus. This month I was tasked with the challenge of killing the kit. I don't like the phrase but you get the drift. I think I will deploy the kit. lol The kit is designed by Heather at the Shaak and has so much to pick from so you can create loads of crafty goodness. Remember the roosters, back to school and easel? They were all made using the kit.
Because it's fall and the weather is changing I guess I am in the fall color mood. If you are like me, you love the golden hues, orange, red, violet and green the season shares. I started with a large letter P from the craft store. It was in the clearance area and just said take me home. I had some fun papers and fabric left in the stash from the kit. Using gel medium I attached some of those to the surface. I then knocked everything back with a coat of white gesso. You can see a process video here.
There were some really cool metal embellishments in the kit that I incorporated into the groupings of Prima flowers. I found a frame from the dollar bin that I altered using products from the Kraaft Shaak. I decided to add some of my Gelli printed tape to the background of the frame to help it pop. I just continued to add flowers, pearls, bling and pebbles to finish out the composition. The last thing I did that did not get video taped was to apply Inkagold to the raised surfaces. I hope you like this weeks project. Be sure to check out the other design teams postings if you haven't seen them. You can find them by clicking on the tab above.
