Swirlydoos January kit Mystical Winter has so many possibilities when it comes to designing. I have done a winter and spring LO using the papers in the kit. I have gone from soft and romantic to cold....bbbbbrrrrrr..... Either way, the kit is beautiful and versatile. This LO showcases the Blue Daze flowers that I just did the tutorial on, in my last post. I used cardstock from the add on kit. Card stock is a must for me when creating the LO's. I use it for the flowers, diecuts and backgrounds. The Dusty Attic piece is from a special order that Krissy opens up for the subscribers. If you order, you can get it shipped free with your kits. This piece is from their last collection. We love our special orders at Swirlydoos. The photo is my dear grandmother. I took this picture this week on my visit to the nursing home to see her. She will be 97 in a couple of months. My little sweetheart.
Here is a closeup of the large and smaller flower. The leaves are Spellbinders and sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist and lightly sprayed with Lindy's Stamp gang Buccaneer Bay Blue Moonshadow Mist then inked with Chestnut Roan (my fave) and distressed.
The Dusty Attic piece was painted with Smooch in Mocha that we got in a former kit. I love the way it pools on the chipboard creating a coppery feel to it. I could of added some blue/green paint to it to give it a verdigris look. hhmmm. Not to late. I'll try on another piece.
I did some punching and lacing. I just purchased a gorgeous wrapping paper rack to store my lace and ribbon rolls, and now I can see everything at a glance. Just pull and cut. I love it!!
I have one more LO in the works from this current kit. I am completing my Zva CHA projects that will be going to California in a couple of days for the show, and I am expecting Swirlydoos February kit around the corner!! It's going to be a creative year !!
