Today I have quite a bit to share!
I have been busy crafting with the stunning Swirlydoos May kit,"Bohemian Spring" !
With the exception of the chippies from Leaky Shed Studio and the Holtz knobs,everything is from the Swirlydoo May kit and Add-ons..
My first project is an OTP.
First I painted the entire cube with Copper acrylic paint. I pulled out the inside glass,covered the sides with the kit's Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope papers then backed the glass with the paper and set it back in.
The Tim Holtz light bulbs and Prima garden fountain are from the kit. I topped the bulbs with a Holtz handle from my stash, altered a watchpart chippie and topped it with a gem from the kit.
I love the Kaleidoscope Collectibles in the Embellishment Add-on because they mix and match effortlessly.
I am having fun with microbeads at the moment and added them all over using gloss accents.
The watch parts chippies were embossed in copper and the smaller one embossed with Stampendous aged black enamel. This is one of my favorite embossing powder because of the combination of colors.
The large gears were embossed with Stampin' Up powder in Vintage Verdigris then distressed with copper ink.
I was inspired by Tracey Sabella's tutorial here and created a cracked glass effect using the plastic from the package, Ranger Crackle Accents and gold microbeads.
Did I mention how much I love these little lightbulbs? The larger watchpart was embossed lightly to give it a hammered look.
For the top, I used a clock chippie and painted it with Copper Rub n' Buff.
I popped out the inner circle and after inking it with Patina Rub n' Buff,covered it with Crackle Accents. The knob was altered with Gold Rub n' Buff.
My second project was created for the Swirlydoo's Round Robin Challenge. If you love Round Robins or have never played,come check it out here.
This is my oldest son,Hayden, at his Senior Prom, 4 years ago. His date looked gorgeous,but that was a difficult dress to scrap!
Using this Prima stencil,I applied texture paste to the background and misted it with blues and greens.
The Flourish chippie was covered in Crackle Accents and microbeads. Under the tearaway openings I inserted the black Prima mats after embossing and highlighting them with blue chalk ink.
I added a few flowers from my stash and used mixed microbeads on this larger Flourish chippie as well.
Keeping the same color scheme, I embossed the paper and used it to mat the pic that was edged in gold Rub n' Buff. The large circle frame chippie was rubbed with a mix of Copper,Gold and patina Rub n' Buff. I seriously love this stuff,if you can't tell. The green gems were cut from the generous bling swatch from the kit.
As you can see, lots of dimension to this page!
Whew! That's all I have for today!
This is one of my all-time favorite kits and thanks for stopping by!
