So can you imagine my surprise and joy when I got my box full of goodies from Frog Dog and Genuinely Jane Studios.... 
OH BOY!!! I know, right! 

I started with the cover of the telephone booth album: 

Step 1: Cover the album with Gesso. 
Step 2: I rubbed Glossy Accents are part of the album and used Fresco Flakes to add some texture. 

Let me tell you... this Liquitex INK is absolutely AMAZING!!! I am in love with this stuff and I just used it for the first time this week.... I need all the colors now! 

The Mixed Media ink is pretty neat too... After I inked up my phone booth I used a paint brush and the ink pad to draw the details on to the phone booth. 

The pleated border I took and inked up like crazy! Using a sponge I inked up the strip. Then I stamped on to it using the Mixed Media Ink... (going to have to get some more of this ink too!). After all this was dried, I used a paint brush to paint swirls on to the border. 

The kit comes with some really great tissue paper... I introduced it to some Perfect Pearls Mist: 

Remember that phone book I was working on? Here is a close up: 

...and then the layout comes together: 
Using some of the other goodies in the kit, I added some embellishments here and there. One thing that is neat to do is stamping on various embellishments. I stamped my Genuinely Jane Studios stamp onto the little "H" card. 

I do have to mention that the whole time I was doing this layout I had the song Telephone in my head by Lady Gaga...! 

There are all kinds of details throughout this layout.... but it is now time to hop on over to see Ildiko! 

Hope you have enjoyed the hop so far. Make sure you leave comments so you can be entered in to the drawing for prizes!!! We LOVE prizes! 

Until next time, Happy Creating!
