We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !! Here are my projects.
First up is what I call my palette cleanser. It's my version of a simpler layout. Not too much of this or that. I used an old family photo I swiped borrowed from my dh.
I used items from the main kit as well as the embellishment, mixed media and flower add-ons.
My next layout is based off of the monthly sketch challenge. Here is the February sketch.
Here is my layout. I rotated the sketch and then it kind of took on a life of it's own. You know how that can happen sometimes. I used a few extra items from my stash (purchased from the Swirlydoos store) because this is a special layout tht's going to be a gift. This is my brother and his wife. this is the only photo from the day they got married in 1995.
I'll be sending them this layout framed as a nice little surprise.
This layout is of dh and I. The papers were perfect for it. I the mixed media add-on for the background. Lots of flowers from the flower add-on.
Next up are 2 "OTP" projects. The first is the wood "LOVE" frame from the project kit add-on. this was so much fun to do. The project kit comes with lots of goodies, but to take it to the next level, you need to pull some things from your stash.
I used the white paint that came in the kit to paint it and inked the edges with gray chalk ink. Then went to work on the chippie pieces also included, they were heat embossed.
I used lots of embossing powder and just randomly swiped my embossing pad on the frame and sprinkled the embossing powder on and heat set it.It's hard to see, but there is also some white crackle randomly spread on the frame as well.
I used gold embossing paste in the music stencil from the mixed media kit. That stencil is going to get a workout from me, it's a must have!!
The pink flowers, leaves and butterfly are from my stash. So is the pink ribbon.
Lastly, this frame is included in the main kit. That's right, this month there is an OTP project right in the main kit.
My frame is going to be a wedding gift, so I kept it simple for a couple of reason. Mainly, because the bride likes simple. Second, because she is still back and forth on the wedding colors. I just painted the frame using the paint from the project add-on. Used this months die of the month to cut the frame and added some bling and flowers.
