Morning All,

It's Ginny here with you today for my 1st reveal of my projects made with Swirlydoos August kit 'Tranquillity'.  A beautiful kit featuring Blue Fern Studios Tranquillity papers.

Sketch Challenge

I am starting with the Sketch challenge for August. We had a beautiful sketch made by Beggahuna for Swirlydoos.

Here is my layout

I used two layers of the BFS papers on top of the burgundy cardstock. I used an around the page punch around the edge and then distressed it. I used the Tim Holtz Grit paste (Mediums kit) through a stencil in the background. The Blue Fern Studio Chipboard pieces I covered with the BFS Mushroom embossing powder, from the Mediums Add On kit. I then added some of the BFS Glitter 'Army Dust' to add some sparkle from the Main kit. I used a Nuvo (not in kit) dimensional paint to add the 'blue' around the layout.

Here are some close ups.

All That Flutters Challenge                                                                                                                  

Next up is the All That Flutters Challenge. I used one main piece of BFS paper mounted on a piece of cardstock. Some small amounts of distressed punching around the page. I used two different stencils with the Grit Paste in the background and the BFS crackle stamp (Mediums Add on) with the BFS Magenta embossing powder, from the Main kit it. I painted the BFS chipboard brick pieces with gesso and then covered some patches with the BFS Mushroom embossing powder. My butterfly is fussy cut from one of the BFS papers. My photo and flowers are layered up with some of the Ultimate Crafts Ephemera set from the Embellishment add on.
