Swirlydoos July *Sprocket* Kit Full Reveal with Kim

Hey everyone, I'm back with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos July *Sprocket* monthly kit. This kit is so jammed packed with the gorgeous papers from Scrapberry's. 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 challenge.

 

Here is the sketch again:

 

Here is my take on the sketch. This kit is full of beautiful papers with wonderful textures. This is a very masculine kit. This is a photo taken a my dh retirement party. It's my bff and his bff, you would think they are a couple but they aren't. 

 

 The kits and add-ons are jam-packed, so I used very few things from my stash. The swirl die cut and the piece of torn music paper. I really stuck to the design of the sketch.

 

 Next up is another layout. This is another masculine layout.

 I started with the text paper and added layers of torn paper to create the design.  I used some burlap flowers from my stash. My dh hates it when I add flowers, so when I do I try to make them more manly (textured) and less girly.

 

Next up is another layout.. more of dh.

I had so much fun creating this. I did just a bit of stamping on the background as the paper has lots of texture.. I add lots of layers to this. The tiles from the main kit, layers of paper, added some burlap and drywall tape from my stash.

 

Next up is my lantern from the Project Add on. I am so in love with how it turn out, considering I didn't have a real plan when I started. It was one of those grab some supplies, turn on the video camera and let's see what happens.

 

I have a a 2 part video on how I created it. Below is part 1, how I created the color and texture on the outside. Come back on Saturday for part 2, how I created the Butterfly Sanctuary on the inside.

Here is the video

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.

Swirlydoos November *Market Street* Full Reveal

Hey everyone, I'm back with my full reveal of projects created with the Swirlydoos November *Market Street* monthly kit. This kit is so jammed packed with the gorgeous 49 and Market papers. You have got to get one, if you don't already subscribe. Here is a look at this gorgeous kit and add-ons again;

Earlier this week I gave you a little preview of the kit by showing you one of my layouts. Today I'm doing the full reveal. This month we have a new sketch designer, ME!! I was so excited to try my hand at sketch designing. There is 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 fun floral papers, but I chose to go with a more solid colored sheet. The colors are so perfect for me. The colors of the papers go so well with my photo. I snuck this selfie in the ladies room of the restaurant we went to to celebrate my birthday, it had great lighting.

The kits and add-ons are jam-packed, so I used very few things from my stash. A few stamps, the cameo and clock and a doily. Lots of layering and some distressing to complete my page.

 

 Next up is another layout. I used an older picture from a visit to see my dad.

I did some paper tearing here.  The chipboard frame from the main kit, I just used inka gold from the mediums kit on it.. The chip board title is from my stash and is also treated with the inka gold. The flowers are a mix from my stash and the main kit. There is a bit of masking, misting and stamping in the background. This layout is for the All That Flutters Challenge on the forums, hence the butterfly.

Next up is a Canvas piece. I created this using the Project Kit add on. In the kit you get the LOVE letters and the canvas, plus a few other goodies.

I had so much fun (and got really messy) creating this. I used a peeled paint technique on the letter using the paints that came in the kit and a glitter paint from my stash. Once the letters were done I went to work on the canvas background. It was a fun project.

 

 

I have a step-by-step video on on the entire canvas. Here is part 1 on the peeled paint technique I used on the letters:

 


That's it for today. Come back next week for Part 2 of the Canvas and more projects created with the November Market Street Kit
