Today I'm sharing my DT projects from the May *Spring Chic* Swirlydoos
Kit. We are still playing catch up at Swirlydoos. First from our April kit being so far behind, then the new website and if you are a follower of the Facebook page
Swirly Camp. With all the shenanigans going on, I still managed to get some layouts done.
First up is my layout based on the May sketch. It is another beauty.
Here is my layout.
I used items from the main kit and a few pieces from the embellishment add on. The chipboard, doily, butterfly and die cut are from my stash. You can easily re-create this look using die cuts from your own stash.
Next up is a very feminine layout I created using the corrugated paper and chipboard frame we got in the main kit. You may recognize the 2 cuties. They are my nieces, a few years ago. They show up pretty often in my layouts.
I used lots of the pretty pink and cream petaloo flowers from the flower add on. The chipboard frame was heat embossed with some shabby pink embossing powder from my stash. I did some masking and misting to my background. The mist is from the mixed media kit add on.
My next layout is pretty simple. I had a hard time leaving so much space on the layout. I just wanted to fill the page. It was also a personal challenge to scrap a picture that wasn't perfect. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time scrapping not so perfect pictures. This was is pretty blurry, but the colors are perfect for the papers.
So as we say at Swirly Camp....Challenge Freaking Accepted!!!
I used more of that awesome corrugated paper. Man, I freaking love that stuff. Flowers are from the main kit and flower add on. I threw in a bit of bling from my stash. We got some really fun micro beads in the mixed media kit. I used them on the frame. I covered the frame in gesso and while it was still wet, I poured on the micro beads. I love how it turned out.
For our Project kit, we got the new Tim Holtz frame. I started working on mine. I decide to go with a travel theme. I printed a few pictures in wallet size and pulled out my travel ephemera. Here is what I have so far.
I'll be adding more pages to this, turning it into a flip album. I am having lots of fun creating with this frame.
That's all I have for today. Thanks for checking out my blog.
