Hi, It's Bec and today is my day to reveal all my projects made with the April Swirlydoos Kit - Purple Haze.

Dream Catcher 

First up is a dream catcher I made with the embroidery hoop which came in the April main kit.
I made a video tutorial on how I made this

Here is my video:

To Make this Dream Catcher I used: 
Embroidery Hoop, Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Garden Fountain and Kaisercraft wood shapes Butterfly from the April 2016 main kit 

Rhinestone trim and Aqua beads from the December 2015 kit

Prima flowers, Feathers, Embroidery cotton, Lace/Ribbon , Blue Fern Studios chipboard flourish, Blue Fern Studios Embossing Powder in Cotton Candy & Seam Mist and Beads from my stash


Next I have the Layout made using the sketch as inspiration

Here is the sketch which goes with this kit

For my background I used some yellow embossing powder with a stamp and then modelling paste through a stencil.

I cut the Blue Fern Studios Lane Street Sign chipboard into three pieces, then I coloured all my chipboard with Blue Fern Studios Embossing powder in  Buttercup, Petal, Cotton Candy and Sage

Next I added my flowers, lace, resin piece  and liquid pearls

Materials used to make this layout:

I loved the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Baroque Frames so much that I wanted to make them the feature of my layout.

I used the Prima bubble stencil with grey ink on my background. Then I used the Prima Platinum crackle paste through a stencil followed by some mists for extra colour.

I added white crackle paste to the Kaisercraft butterflies then coloured them with a brown mist.

I coloured all my chipboard with embossing powder

Purple Box

I made this from an old watch box for Peggy's Spring cleaning challenge on the forum this month.

I cut the Blue Fern Studios Courtship Lane Paper West Plaza to fit on all the sides.
I inked the edges and the middle section for the box with Distress Ink in Dusty Concord

I place the adhesive pearls trim which cam in the kit around the sides of my box, I had one piece left so I cut it in half at placed it on the top of the box

I decorated the top of the box the the Blue fern flowers, purple leaf trim and Kaisercraft wood butterflies which all came in the April Kit
