Newest Education Design Team Member!!!

You are looking at newest education design team member!  Wahooo!!!! I am absolutely ecstatic!!! I have been squealing and jumping up and down all day long. I think my co-workers thought I was crazy.

I am so proud to have been chosen and I plan to give swirlydoos my all.

Over at swirlydoos there are various challenges hosted by members. This month the swirly girl challenge was to make a monochromatic layout where you scrap your age. You must include your age and you must scrap pictures of yourself.

At 29 I was having a difficult time with 30 looming ahead and I scrapped a LO of myself and my age.

This was me 4 years ago. I do believe this page was based on a lift. I adored these papers. they were part of a kit form an online club called but they no longer exist.

At the time there was not much I made my own. I used a zig writer to make dots and then covered them with Ranger glossy accents.

 This is a close up of my journaling.

And this is me today at 33. This is my monochromatic LO for the swirlydoos challenge. I used the March kit which had quite a few papers from the engraver line by Prima. I used Petaloo color me crazy flowers and sprayed them with TA mists and painted them with primary elements in dragonfly wing.

One of the twists was to use black gesso. I loved the Prima mask that came in the kit and was dying to use it. I used modeling paste on the mask for dimension and then covered with black gesso for the grit and distress.  I colored the roses with TA mists.

 I used some chipboard pieces from another swirlydoos kit and added them randomly before applying the gesso in order to mimic the paper behind. I added spots of glue and sprinkled seed beads all over the Lo.

The white stamp is Kaisercraft and the brown stamp over it is Prima. I did this multiple times around the LO. The dark gold with the iridescent look is the dragonfly primary elements. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this contrast in my last few years of scrapping. It's always fun to remember where you came from.
