Maggi here to share some more creations I did with Wistful Blues, the Swirlydoos August kit of the month.  It is such a delightful collection of paper designs from Riddersholm, Bo Bunny, and Kaisercraft and I'll bet that it gives your creativity a jump start!

I love this photo of my Dad when he was a teenager riding his bicycle in the tobacco field.  I cut a piece of Blue Fern chipboard from their Tangier Panel and embossed it with aged embossing powder and placed that over some rough cut burlap.  The splats were made with Lindy's capped with an old baldy cap.

Random punching around the edges completes the masculine and aged look.

Cardstock: Kaisercraft Toffee
Patterned paper: Bo Bunny Somewhere in Time collection - Passage 16401415, Kaisercraft Key to My Heart collection - Flattered
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios Tangier Panel
Embossing powder: Stampendous aged marine blue embossing enamel
Flowers: Prima Jute Jovial
Ink: Mix'd Media Inx Patina, Peridot,
Mist: Lindy's Cattail Copper Brown
Masks: TCW Well Rounded
Masking paste: 13 Arts gesso; Prima
Other: Papermania Chronology label plate. burlap

I love Steampunk and had fun "punking" up this layout.

I randomly applied copper embossing powder to the flower to give it some "pizazz"!  The corner chippy is ScrapFx and is topped with a Websters cameo.  The bottlecap came in the Embellishment addon.

I painted the wings of this Dusty Attic chippy with Inklingz powder blue (in the main kit) and then embossed the body with Stampedous aged gold.   The metal flower also has aged gold embossing powder on it.

The flower is from the flower add on and I gave it a quick spritz with Lindy's to color it.  The bottlecap and quote inside it are from the embellishment add on.

We had a discussion on the forums the other day about the plastic boxes  in which produce is often packaged.  That gave me the idea to make a gift box from a plastic lettuce box.  Here's one that I did using papers, Kaisercraft paper blooms and the resin butterfly from the kit.  The large flower is handmade using cardstock from the kit and the greenery and bow is from my stash.  Tomorrow on the Swirlydoos blog I will have a start to finish video on altering this box.  I hope you have time to check it out!
