August à la modes, Preview 1

Hi everyone!  It’s time for the My Favorite Things design team to preview this month’s à la modes releases!  We have two new sets this month and they’ll be released Tuesday night (8/17, 10 p.m. EST) along with this month’s VIP WTG package.   Fun!  :)

You’re Groovy


This is Groovy Girl and she certainly is groovy!   The set comes with the image I’ve used here and several really fun sentiments. 

I  wanted to use this groovy ball trim that I’ve had forever, but I had a bit of a hard time getting the balls to all hang in the same direction.  (I don’t like crooked balls.  Rolling Eyes)  There are still a couple of wonky ones doing their own thing, but overall, they’re cooperating.


I’ve colored with Copics, added ground and grass with pencils then colored over the peace sign with a clear 3-d glaze pen to add some shine and a bit of dimension.  I used the glaze pen on the flower centers and ladybugs on the patterned papers as well.

MFTYGINI kept the inside simple (as always) using leftover scraps of the paper and stamping the image slightly tilted in the corner.

For more MFTeasers using this set, please check out Kim’s blog HERE after 11 a.m. EST. 

I’ll be back tomorrow with a sample of the second set, and then again tomorrow night for our WTG VIP release hop!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
