So here I am with the Swirlydoos January 'Delicate' Kit Reveal.
This is my last kit reveal on the Swirlydoos DT as my term has come to an end, and for now, family commitments have had to take priority. I have had an amazing time with this very talented design team and they have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I'm not going far though as I will still be around in the forums, a Swirly girl at heart!
But what a gorgeous kit to finish with - beautiful papers from Lemon Craft, in pretty blue tones, florally and girly! And the Project Kit this month is probably my favourite ever!
Here is the Sketch created by our very own Kim Heard!
And here is my take on the sketch
This was my favourite paper from the Lemon Craft collection.
I distressed, punched and inked with Weathered wood Distress Ink and matted onto blue cardstock.
My photo of my DS is also matted on the blue cardstock.
I stamped on the background with a Finnabair bubble wrap stamp ad ten a quote and butterfly stamp from my stash.
In the background is the translucent texture paste with a flourish stencil.
I used a Ice Resin piece from the Prima IOD moulds from last months kit in my flower cluster altered with the Maya Gold Ice Blue paint.
I also used this paint to gently paint/ blend around the edges of the flower cluster and the photo to soften the look.
And I just loved the pretty Lemon Craft badges!
Next up is my layout for the All Thats Flutters Challenge on the Swirlydoos Forums which you can find here
On the background of this layout I used two panels from the panelled PP across the layout.
I then used the Transparent texture paste and a white texture paste with two different stencils, gesso splatting and some small pieces of lace to create the mixed media background.
There is also some stamping with Finabair butterfly stamps with Prima chalk pad 'Tin Can'.
The Creative Embellishments chippy butterflies are covered in a white embossing powder.
The leafy flourish die and the lime roses are from my stash.
In the embellishment kit was a lovely sheet from Lemon Craft of
floral cards. These just screamed a Shabby Chic Mini Album to me!
This mini album is so easy to put together, it is just layers!
The floral cards are mounted on the copper glitter card. This is then backed by a piece of brown distressed cardstock. On this piece of cardstock I have then used two layers of a nesting frame die from X-Cut in two different browns to create the mount to add the photos. I have slotted in pieces of doily into the layers on a couple of the pages.
We had a metal and glass Antique Frame in the kit which I altered into a present from my daughter to my mother for her birthday, Holly was sat with me whilst I put it together giving me her opinion of its progress. Thankfully she was very happy with the result and so was Granny!
Inside the frame is a piece of PP the same size as the glass with a little lace detail down the side on both sides.
I then used the round floral pictures from the card sheet, distressed them and matted them on distressed brown cardstock and stuck them on the PP, one on both sides.
On the front I added my flower cluster, some pearls and a 'Grandma' chippy from my stash which I then 'wrote' on with the Ranger white enamel accents.
A pretty ribbon bow and Voila!
This layout uses the Heidi Swapp Invisibles resist feature paper.
I used three Distress Inks on the background of this blending together Tattered Rose, Milled Lavender and Tumbled Glass.
I mixed some of the Ferro turquoise paint with some texture paste for the stencilled background with a TCW stencil.
The Creative Embellishments chipboard border I painted in gesso and then highlighted with the Maya Gold Ice Blue paint.
I used the die of the month, Spellbinders 'Feathers'
And now for my favourite Project Kit - this gorgeous MINI HUTCH from Kaisercraft.
This is how I altered it.
There is a Snapguide Tutorial available for this project.
It is rather long! But it goes through my complete process of putting the hutch together through to decorating it.
You can find the tutorial here:
Lastly I have a last layout to share with you.
This layout I wanted to be a bit stronger as it is about two 'men', so I have deepened the colour by doing a lot of darker inking with Vintage Photo distress ink.
There is no mixed media on this page keeping a cleaner look because I liked the wood paper with all its nail heads so much!
This layout is just about layers with some fussy cut floral pieces from another Pattered paper in the collection popped up on the sides with foam pads.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my projects made with this January kit.
