Next stop: Park Avenue!

Only a couple of more days until Studio Calico's Park Ave kits go live. Let's take a sneak peek at my gallery projects for December, shall we?

Studio Calico Park Ave Sneaks by @pixnglue

I love that you can take this kit from bold to understated and elegant. The skyline houses in the card main are great to watercolor and the fill patterns proofed to be versatile beyond the original purpose. My favorite from this month's card kit? The adorable veneer taxi of course!

Before I go, I just wanted to give you a couple of shopping tips for items that I think work well with your Park Ave card kit:

  • AmCrafts Gold Zing Metallic embossing powder. Yes, it's become an addiction since the last kit or so. The raised surface of heat embossing gives such a nice texture and the gold color is looks good with both the neutrals and the purple/pinks.
  • Vellum. I don't think I'll give up on this anytime soon. It's my go-to to either tone done a bold paper and let the focal point shine or as a extra layer.
  • Glossy Accents. I specifically used this for the veneer taxi card above to adhere the glitter and give a little shine to the rear window. It's also great to fix sequins, buttons and the like.
  • Neocolor II. Well, Céline recommended them as her favorites in spring and by now I have a whole collection of these watercolor crayons. If you've worked with Gelatos before, they are a little different to work with but the colors are so vibrant - worth to take a look at them. If you go into the SC shop to a specific color, you also find info on which of them coordinate with the Color Theory system.

If you are interested to see more sneaks, the SC sneak page shows some more and many of the Creative Team members also add a sneak thread on the message board.

Hope to see you for reveal on the 27th!
