Hey guys, I just want to share a couple of layouts I did for fun. I had some free time in my happy place and I pulled out some of my recent favorites and just played around. I was so much fun to just grab stuff that I have been hoarding and just use it. 

This first layout I made using lots of Prima. I just love the Zella Teal line and I had the perfect picture for it. 

IMG_4078

Almost everything on this page is from The Zella Teal line. I used some Prima white crackle paste and Lindy's mist (Shabby Turbine Teal and Tibetan Poppy Teal) for the background. The chipboard is Blue Fern Studios. I embossed it with Lindy's Cafe Au Lait.

 

My next layout was created with Blue Fern Studios products. I used the Tranquility paper line, it's one of my favorites from them. 

Here is my layout:

IMG_4081

I love the brown/teal color combo. I went a little chipboard crazy on this one. I think in total I used 7 pieces, all from Blue Fern Studios. I have a huge chipboard addiction, so it felt good to just get a bunch on a page, lol. I treated the chipboard with several different embossing powders. 

I used my favorite stencil in the background with some Prima gold crackle paste. I also dug into my lace stash and stuck some here and there.  

The flowers are from Petaloo. I really miss their flowers. There is also an old Prima branch in there that I cut up. 

That's all I have today. Thanks for letting me share my work with you today. Stop back by tomorrow as I have more to share.

Peace and Love.

Swirlydoos May *Spring Grunge* Kit Full Reveal

Hey everyone, I'm back with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos May *Spring Grunge* monthly kit. This kit is so jammed packed with the gorgeous papers from Prima and Blue Fern Studios. You have to get one, if you don't already subscribe. Here is a look at this gorgeous kit and add-ons again;

May kit full 2017

 

My first layout is based on the monthly sketch challenge.

 

Here is the sketch again:

May sketch 2017

 

 

Here is my take on the sketch. This kit is full of beautiful papers with wonderful textures and my favorite colors of pinks and corals. This is an older photo of me taken on a fall photo shoot.

 

 The kits and add-ons are jam-packed, so I used very few things from my stash. A piece of metal, a stamp and the resin mushroom. I kept the layout very simple to show off the texture in the paper and my stamping.

May 2017 sketch

 

 Next up is another layout. This one was created for the "All that Flutters" challenge. It's a challenge to create a layout/project using anything that has wings i.e butterflies, dragonflies, bees, angels you get the picture.

 I started with the Blue Fern Studios paper and chipboard dangle from the kit.  Then I grabbed some extra chipboard, lace, cheesecloth, glitter glass and the small coral flowers from my stash. I really love how this one turned out.

 

May 2017 ATF

 

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 had so much fun 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.

  May 2017 reveal

 

 

 

Next up is my tag for the Project Add on. I kept it pretty and simple. I primed the tag with some white gesso, once dry, I used the molding paste from the mixed media kit. For my color, I used distress crayons we got in a past project/tech kit. I used a water brush to blend the colors. The swirl was made using a prima mould and ice resin we got in another past project/tech kit. 

I added a few small flowers and the butterfly, topped it with some black splatters (black gesso and water) and title chippy. DONE!

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:

April 2017 sketch

 

 
 

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.

April 2017 sketch
 

 

 

 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.

Happy with Creative Embellishments

Today I have a project for Creative Embellishments to share. I know I keep saying how I love their chipboard, but I really do. If you haven't tried it you MUST!! It really adds something extra to your projects. 

Today I have a layout to share. I did a little mini photo shoot with my niece and came up with some retro looking photos.  This photo is one of my favorites from the shoot.

IMG_1079

 I used papers from blue fern studios Serendipity line, as they go perfectly with the overall feel of the photo. I loved the designs on this sheet, it just added the little extra.

I did a bit of stamping to add to the background.  For my chipboard pieces, I used the flourish-set-29 in my cluster and off to the left. I heat embossed it with a glitter embossing powder. I used the happy-word-set  for my title. I also heat embossed this with a two-tone embossing powder. It has a golden sheen to it.

I added some of my favorite flowers, embellishments and die cut doily and called it done. 

 

Here are some close ups;

IMG_1081

 

IMG_1082

 

That's all I have for toady. Remember the December monthly challenge is still going on over at Creative Embellishments. We would love it, if you played along. Thanks for stopping by, come back later this week when I share another Swirlydoos project.

Amour with Creative Embellishments

Today I have a project for Creative Embellishments to share. I know I keep saying how I love their chipboard, but I really do. If you haven't tried it you MUST!! It really adds something extra to your projects. 

Today I have a layout to share. The photo on the layout is a recent one of dh and I out celebrating my birthday with a nice dinner. We were on vacation in New Orleans and had a fabulous time. 

IMG_1018

I love this photo and the colors in it. I used papers from blue fern studios Serendipity line, as they go perfectly with the colors in my photo. I used the fascination, calling cards, and inspiration sheets for my background and layers.

I did a bit of masking and misting to the background as well.  For my chipboard pieces, I used the lace-border-1 behind my photo. I cut it into pieces (didn't want to waste any) and just used it on the sides. I heat embossed it with a two-tone embossing powder. I used the fancy-oblong-frame-set (the small one) over my photo. I also heat embossed this with a two-tone embossing powder. 

I added some of my favorite flowers, embellishments and die cut swirly and called it done. 

 

Here are some close ups;

That's all I have for toady. Remeber the monthly challenge is still going on over at Creative Embellishments. We would love it, if you played along. Thanks for stopping by, come back later this week when I share another Swirlydoos project.

Swirlydoos August *Tranquility* Kit Full Reveal

Hey everyone, I'm back with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos August *Tranquility*  monthly kit. This kit is so jammed packed with gorgeous new papers, flowers, chipboard and embossing powders from Blue Fern Studios. You have got to get one, if you don't already subscribe.

Yesterday 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:

August 2016 sketch

 

Here is my take on the sketch. This was another kit that has such a vintage feel. The brown tones of the photo go so well with the hues of the papers.

The kits are jam-packed, so I used very few things from my stash.  Mainly a die, a stencil, mist and inks to complete the page.

August 2016 sketch

 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 a few layers going on here. I used a page from an old book. The tag is from the tech kit, I used a background stamp on it. The chipboard piece is from my stash, it was perfect for the photo. There is a bit of stenciling and stamping here and there.

August 2016 1

Next up 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 a few flowers. They are made from burlap, so it's kinda manly...right? I added a bunch of metals that were altered using the tech kit. Lots of stamping for texture and some stenciling as well. There is chipboard, inking and burlap too. All the things that make a manly layout.

August Tech

 

I have a video on how to use the Ten Second Verday Paint and Patina kit. Here it is:

 

 

 

For my last layout I have the "anatomy" layout.

I used another vintage photo to create this layout. This time, I did some distressing along with misting and masking. Almost (99%) all of the elements used on this layout are from the main kit.

I have a snapguide tutorial which shows my step by step process.
