Hey everyone, I'm back with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos July *Moments Captured* monthly kit. Last week I gave you a little preview of the kit by showing you the layout I made using our monthly sketch.
Here is the sketch again:
Here is my take on the sketch. This kit has such a vintage feel, that I reused one of my favorite photos of my mother. I altered it a bit by printing it in sepia tone. The brown tones of the photo go so well with the blues and browns of the papers.
Even though the kits are jam-packed, I used a few things from my stash, the filmstrip, a die, the resin frame and some bling to complete the page.
Next up is another layout. I used another vintage photo. I found this one on the Internet, I just could not find a source for it.
I have lots of layers going on here. I used a lot from the ephemera pack that's in the kit. The blue flowers are from my stash. I thought they worked better for this layout. There is a bit of stenciling here and there.
I have one more layout too share and then we are on to some altered projects. This is a masculine layout. Oh how I have a difficult time with these layouts. My dh hates to see flowers on his layouts. I know those of you with little and BIG little boys at home feel my pain. Oh the struggle is real...lol!!
So I used 1 flower. It's a kraft flower, so it's kinda manly...right? I added a bunch of chipboard hoping he won't see the flower. Lots of stamping for texture ans some stenciling as well. There is distressing, inking and burlap too. All the things that make a manly layout.
Ok, on to some altered projects. First up is a wall hanging i mad using the mixed media kit. This month the kit included piece of 12x12 plywood. It also included some distress stain and some Prima opal magic paint.
I used the plywood and the distress stain for this project. I also use the stencil that came in the project kit. Add some paper and embellishments from the main kit, a piece of canvas paper and few other embellishments from my stash and BAM! Rustic Wall Hanging
For my last project I have the shadow box from the project kit add on. There was an 8x10 shadow box, stencil, flowers, acrylic paint and a few strings of twine in this months kit.
For my shadow box, I chose to decorate the outside for now. My anniversary (22yrs) is coming up and we are having professional photos taken. Yep, I'm going to use a photo from that for the inside. So for now, all you get to see is the outside.
I used the flowers that came in the project kit plus a few more gray ones from the main kit. My wedding colors were pink and gray , so this worked out perfectly. I did have to grab a few pink flowers from my stash.
Come back on Saturday and I will have a video to share with you on how I decorated the outside of the shadow box.
