July Sketch Challenge

We have a new Sketch Challenge for you!

Evelyn's Video Tutorial!


We would love to see YOU use our sketch as inspiration for a layout. We have very few rules for our Sketch Challenge. As a matter of fact, we have just one rule, we want your layout to resemble the sketch. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, but we do want to look at your layout and be able to see that you used the sketch. Other than that, you are free to use anything you have in your personal stash, and we welcome all styles of scrapbooking.

We will award two prizes for this sketch challenge. The first prize will be a collection of paper, flowers, chipboard, and embellishments selected by C'est Magnfique's owner Deonna. The winner of the prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping! 
Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store, will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 

We will also choose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of July to submit your layout.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1. You must be a follower of our blog. It's easy to become follower - see the left sidebar.

2. Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool below. Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout (not your general blog address). If you do not have a blog, you may link to an online gallery.

  The deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, July 31, 2015 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch. We can't wait to see how you use it!

Olga's Mixed Media Layout Tutorial with the July Kit

Hello everyone! Olga here today. I want to share how to make this mixed media layout with the July Kit. Paper from Tim Holtz just made for such fun work!


I choose a piece of paper for the page and painted it with white gesso in the places where there will be all the decorations. Then I placed the embellishments and picture onto the page, but did not stick, simply defined their place.


I applied texture gel over a stencil onto the dry gesso. Then, I choose a few red colors of spray for a bright background.




Then I added stamping with archival black ink and a bit of Scotch paper tape to the background.




Now I pasted all my embellishments and stickers down. I added the alphabet from the Moxxie Cork Alpha Cardstock Sticker Sheet.



In some places, I put ink for embossing, generously sprinkled copper embossing powder over the ink, shook off the excess with a broad brush, and heat set.



The final part of the work - splatters of mist and I used Glossy Accents to attach sequins.




Thank you for your attention! I hope you find this tutorial inspirational! If you are interested in the July Kit or Add-Ons a limited amount of kits are available for purchase from the C'est Magnifique Store while supplies last!
