Hello, ciao, hola, bonjour!!! :) This is the reveal day at Studio Calico – one of our favourites day durign whole month. Did I mention that this month’s kits are devine?! Everything inside reminds me summer days at the beach, wind in my hair, salt with sand on my feet… oh my! summer is so close and thanks to the ‚Hello, hello‚ supplies I felt this mood a little bit earlier this year :)
These few hours before the official reveal (the pre-sale for subbers start right now), I want to show three of my June’s projects. As usually I start from the Scrapbook Main Kit Only layouts.
I had a lot of fun creating this project. I used a lot of various media in yellow–orange–pink palette and some fancy supplies with an awesome ‚June’/calendar mask which is a part of a scrapbook main kit.

Talking about the inspiring combo for this month – I prepared something for you! I grab few of my favourites supplies from the shop in this palette and I created a goodie-mood board. I used most of these mediums during my work with ‚Hello, hello‚ kits and I find this colours best for June’s kits. If you are already a Studio Calico subber you know, that you can combine your orders from 27th of every month for a whole week! This way you save your money becasue you pay the shipping costs only one! I think it’s cool and it’s a great bonus for people who are subbers :)

This layout is something completely different – it is placed somewhere far, far away from the happy , summer palette. I stuck here in the spring mood, took this peachy pink colour from the part of John’s Lennon’s wall which we visited during our travel to Prague at the begining of April and mixed it with green shade from the main kit. I used transparent alpha from the kit as a stencil and I draw these letters using precision pen and Neocolor II crayons.
This work – when I finished it I finally had time to look at the Studio Calico gallery and than I realized that this work is as oryginal as vintage Santa Claus in a Coca-Cola’s advertisment for Christmas… yep… I realized that whole gallery is full of painted stripes like these :) poor me! I was so happy that I found an inspiration in those stripes from the blouse on the picture! That I found a good way to present these exclusive, awesome Color Theory acrylic paint from the main kit! Well – it happens, sometimes… I embossed ‚hello’ wood veneer using white ZINK embossing powder and… I saw simmilar projects in the gallery, already posted. Crap! Anyway – I added lots of stamps from scrapbook add-ons: ‚Hola‚, ‚Ni hao‚ and ‚Bonjour‚. To stamp some of them (from the ‚Hooray’ set) I used Color Theory inks in various shades.
my favourite embellish scrapbook add-on this month – Bonjour – all of these supplies inspired me so much!
