Kaisercraft "Key to my heart" for All About Scrapbooks / SATW January challenge

Hello there fellow scrappers....Happy Friday!  :))

Today I'm sharing a layout created using Kaisercraft "Key to my heart" collection for All About Scrapbooks.  This collection is utterly gorgeous!! and such a joy to work with :)

My layout is for the January mood board at Scrap Around The World - have you seen it??
It is a stunning & inspiring board put together by Kim make sure you check it out!

Here is what I created....

Ok, first up, this layout didn't turn out how I had intended!!
I wanted to use a "beachy" type photo to go with the beachy mood board at SATW.
BUT, my printer had other ideas & decided to pack it in!!!  grrrr
I already had the layout almost completed when I discovered I couldn't print my photo :(
So, me being the inpatient person that I, couldn't wait until I got a new printer, so ended up using a photo that I had already printed out.  So my flowers ended up getting some gelato colour treamtent to help coordinate with the photo, plus a few more bits got added into my layers to help tie the new colour combo together.
I was inspired by the beachy photos & the colours in the photo of the stack of teacups.  And also the netting that is holding the glass balls (what are those things called???), and although I didn't have any netting, I've cut up pieces from an old doily to add in amongst my layers to represent this.
Here are a few close ups....
My main cluster....with MHC flowers that I've altered the colour using my awesome gelato's plus some added gesso.

Another small cluster with altered flowers.

This is a 2Crafty Vintage oval frame that I've coated in Ranger distress crackle paint. 

More 2Crafty - ATC words from the Friendship pack.

And a bit of a side on view to get an idea of the layers created.
More details & a full list of products can be seen over on the All About Scrapbooks blog HERE
I would love for you to pop over and have a little looksie - thanks :)
That's all from me for today.... I will be back soon with some more creations for AAS :).
Take care & happy scrapping xx

I have a little laugh cos my page for satw didn't turn out how I wanted either but that's another story!!
I love how yours turned out!

The hoot goes perfectly with the flowers and paper
