Swirlydoos May kit!

Hi there! Today I'm sharing my projects made with the ever so lovely May kit - Spring Chic - from Swirlydoos. The colors of this kit is absolutely amazing, perfectly coordinated papers and embellishment as always. I especially love all the beautiful Petaloo flowers in this kit :)

First, let me show you my sketchpage:

I have torn the patterned paper and glued in onto the burlap, which came with this kit. Then I did some stenciling, misting and stamping on the background (the stamp is from Prima, and is included in this months kit). 

Next, a romantic page with a photo of one of my darling sisters:

Just look at these amazing flowers and butterflies from Petaloo! 

My third page is a colorful one with lots of details:

I have painted the chipboard frames with white gesso, pink and blue acrylic paint and finished them off with clear gloss varnish and crackle varnish.

The cute little hearts on sticks from Prima was just perfect for this playful page!

And finally, an off-the-page project:

This wooden heart is adorable just at it is, but I decided to give it the same treatment as the chipboard frames on the previous layout. I painted the heart white, and then with pink and blue acrylic paint. Finally I finished with some clear gloss varnish. The wooden pieces from Prima was just perfect for this project, as was the vintage pieces from Petaloo. 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got some inspiration!

Sweet smile ~ Dusty Attic

Hi! I just got the latest release from Dusty Attic in my hands, and it is absolutely fantastic!! Love the new words, titles, vines and everything! Check it out on Dusty Attics website, and remember - you can now buy directly from this site - great, huh?!

Anyway, for this layout I'm about to show you, I picked out one of my old favs, Decorative Frame #2 (DA0208), and you also get a couple of extra scrolls with this piece - loooove! I combined the frame with Foliage #2 (DA1292) and the title "Sweet" from Wordpack #14 (DA1270).

This is my sweet little niece, Julia. She is such a precious little girl, and I just had to scrap this photo in soft, pastel colors. I painted the frame with white gesso and then Dusty in Color, Dusty Pink (DA0907). I finished the frame off with Dusty in Color Clear Gloss Varnish (DA0901). 

Lots of layering  - papers, chipboard, flowers! The foliage was painted white and then covered with Clear Gloss Varnish, as was the title chippie.

A couple of more close-ups:
