More with Swirlydoos February kit!

Hi everybody! I have more inspiration from the February kit, Artful Blues, to share with you today. I adore the colors in this kit - from dark gray til deep blue, such a gorgeous color combo!
To purchase your very own Swirlydoos kit, visit Swirlydoos website!
I just love the large, blue flowers that comes with the flower add-on. They really make any page or project pop! The felt border in the background is amazing, it adds so much to this layout!

Just look at this fantastic flower!
I cut small pieces of the chicken wire and added here and there, this and the background paper gives a rustic feel to this otherwise romantic layout.

My second layout for today is a mixed media one. I have played with gesso, clear gesso, masks, mists and then I did a lot of layering. I have also used the scraps from the felt border from the first layout - so don't throw that away, it can be used!
Chicken wire, cheese cloth and lots of flowers!

I simly love the mirror feathers!

The chipboard fence is from Dusty Attic. I painted it white and distressed the edges. It goes so well with the fence in the photo.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Memories ~ Dusty Attic February Inspiration Board

Hi! Have you seen the February Inspiration Board over at Dusty Attic? It is an amazing one, with warm, rich colors and I was so inspired when I started creating!
Here's my take, with a pic of my darling daughter playing in the garden one summer. She and her brother had a water fight, and had so much fun!
Behind the paper from Maja Design, I have pieces of the largest Skeleton Clock Face (DA0430), painted with white gesso.

The Leafy Stem #4 (DA0892) was cut into smaller pieces, embossed with bronze embossing powder and then I misted them with dark purple mist. The little birdcage (DA1189) was painted white.

The title is Typewriter ABC set (DA0143-9, also painted white. This font is still one of my favs!

Lots of layering and flowers!

Thank you for stopping by today!

We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  
Here are my first three projects with this amazing kit:
First, my sketch layout. I had fun with texture paste and a brick stencil on this one. I used a couple of frames from the die-cuts for my photos and arranged flowers and swirls around them. The chipboard swirl I painted with white gesso, texture paste and then I embossed it with white embossing powder.

A couple of close-ups:

Next, a canvas, using the diecut paper from the main kit as a base. I have then created a background with clear gesso, a stencil and mists in gray and blue. The large blue flower from the flower add-on is amazingly beautiful and these flowers are just perfect for OTP projects!

My third page is a mixed media page, where I created a background using clear gesso, white gesso, a stencil, stamps (from last months kit) and mists. I have also painted liquid pearls, using a small brush, here and there

Dream Passionately ~ Dusty Attic

Hi! Today I have a romantic layout to share with you, with lots of flowers and in soft colors. I have used some of the newer Dusty Attic chipboard pieces, and I just love the Elegant Swirl #3. I painted it white and used the larger pieces to frame my photo.
The title "Dream Passionately" was also painted white. I adore these new titles! Among the flowers you can spot a couple of Dusty in Blooms, Vintage Rose.

Papers are from Maja Design.
