Swirlydoos April *Wild Flower* Kit Reveal

Hey everyone, I'm here today with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos April *Wild Flower* monthly kit. This kit is so jammed packed with the gorgeous Prima and Blue Fern papers. You have to get one, if you don't already subscribe.

I have been having so much fun trying my hand at sketch designing. There is still a bit of a learning curve, but it is fun. Hope you like the new sketch designs, they are made to go more with the kit and it's contents.

Here is the sketch again:

Here is my take on the sketch. This kit is full of beautiful vintage papers. I loved that some of the papers had plenty texture. I used this sheet to highlight a the photo of dh and I, the color was perfect. I used the frame from my stash, but everything else is from the kit.  

I did add a bit of sticky rub-ons in the background. Then used some rose-gold foil on them. These are from a past kit.

 Next up is another layout.I created this using a photo I found on the internet (don't know who to credit the photo).

I did some paper distressing and a lot of layering. The chip board is from my stash. There is some masking and misting in the background. I used lots of flowers and some sequins. This layout is for the All That Flutters Challenge on the forums, hence the butterfly.

Next up is another layout.. I created this using a photo I found on the internet (don't know who to credit the photo).

I did a lot of layering on this layout. I did some masking on the background and I used lots of die cuts. The chippies are from the kit, I used embossing powder on them. All the flowers are from the kit and the flower add on.

Altered Artist Palette Tutorial

Hey everyone, today I am sharing a video on how I created this altered artist palette. I got the palette in the Swirlydoos November Market Street monthly kit. I've been holding onto it for just the right project and this happened to be it.

I dug deep into my stash for some items on this project. I also dug deep into the Swirlydoos store and some of my past Swirlydoos kits.  No worries, I also added some of the latest and greatest goodies on here as well.

I really love how this turned out. Here is another close up:

April Dusty Attic Challenge

Hi everyone, I'm back today to share my layout I created for the April Dusty Attic challenge. This month's mood board has a rustic theme to it. Here is the mood board:

Dusty attic mood board

You can use the sketch or you can just use the inspiration photos. I chose to just go with the inspiration photos.

Here is my layout:

 

IMG_3871

I used paper and flowers from 49 and Market. Plus some flowers from Petaloo. I used the Dusty attic chicken wire and wagon wheel chipboard pieces. The chicken wire was heat embossed with a patina embossing powder. The wagon wheel was first heat embossed, then I used some perfect pearls. While that was still wet I added a different color embossing powder and heat set it. I love the texture this creates.

There is some stenciling and stamping on the background as well as the misting. I used some Prima color bloom 2 sprays for the misting.

This photo was taken in the mountains of Colorado while I was on a scrappy retreat with friends.

 

Well, that's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.


Swirlydoos March *Indigo Dream* Kit full reveal

Hey everyone, I'm back with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos March *Indigo Dreams* monthly kit. This kit is so jammed packed with the gorgeous Scrapberry's papers. You have to get one, if you don't already subscribe. Here is a look at this gorgeous kit and add-ons again;

My first layout is based on the monthly sketch.

 

Here is the sketch again:

March 2017 sketch

 

 

Here is my take on the sketch. This kit is full of beautiful papers in pretty hues of blues and corals. The colors are so different for me. This is another selfie of dh and I on vacation. We try and sneak these in whenever we can.

 

 The kits and add-ons are jam-packed, so I used very few things from my stash. A die cut, the masks and the big flowers.

March 2017 sketch 1

 

 Next up is the anatomy layout. This layout was created using just the main kit. It's to show subscribers what can be done using just the main kit. There is a step by step tutorial on our Snapguide channel for this and lots of other layouts using only our main kits.

 

March 2017 anatony

 

Next up is another layout.. I created this using a photo I found on the internet (don't know who to credit the photo to).

I had so much fun (and got really messy) creating this.I did some masking, stamping and misting on the background. I add lots of art stones and glitter glass to this once I was done.  A few of the  flowers for this came from my stash.

Next up is my carousel for the Project Add on. This was a labor of love, but I am so happy with the way it turned out. I also created a video on how to put together the carousel and how I decorated it.

How about the other sides

I really love this color combo.

Here is my layout:

I used products from the Rossi Belle and Wild and Free collections. Plus I included some of my favorite older Prima resin pieces. I did some stenciling in the background and used my Prima watercolors.

I used a few pieces of Dusty Attic chipboard I got in a special order from Swirlydoos kit club.

Prima NEW Year: NEW Challenge!!

I'm sharing a layout I created based on the Prima new-challenge. Here is the new mood board

MIP challenge

Here is my laout. I used the Rossi belle collection to create this layout.

Prima

I love all things Prima and all things pink, so I loved this challenge. I used so much Prima product to create this page. I think the only not Prima is the chipboard and embossing powder on it.

The photo is of dh and I at my 30yr class reunion almost 4 yrs ago.

 

That's all I have for today, thanks for stopping by.
