Let's Dance

Today I would like to share some pages I've made with some recent Swirlydoos kits.  

First up is my adorable Aubrey-Sue (I'm definitely not partial or anything) and my hubby all dressed up for the very first daddy daughter dance YEARS ago. I used the Swirlydoos kit from July this year, Belle Fleur,  which was chocked full of Blue Fern's new Deja Vu Collection. My color choice was inspired by Stacy Young....peach and teal

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Patina and Aquamarine (One of my favorite color combos) I was a little heavy handed under the photo but the bit on the right is so soft and perfect! Live and learn. There's lots of layers using the wood pieces and journaling cards from the Prima Debutante collection. I thought the wood piece which became my title was absolutely perfect. 

The stamp is inspired by other papers in the kit which have a lamp post image. I decided to add my own with a Leblanche stamp that I've had for years. 

This is a layout made during swirly camp in Bailey Colorado using the same kit...Belle Fleur.  The roses are from previous kits and have this wonderful wax coating that is just amazing. the resin is from a 2013 kits and worked perfect for my weeping angel layout. again, this is the Deju Vu paper line and has so many details that with just some layering you have a magnificent page. 

Hope you enjoyed some of my latest creations!

Altered notebook

Today I have an altered notebook that I would like to share. 

I was inspired by this month's mood board over at Dusty Attic

Ironically enough, I had a Dusty Attic notebook sitting in my stash just waiting for some paint and chippies.

How did I do?

I made the background using one of those Tattered Angels paint systems. Remember when we all just HAD to have them? Yeah I finally bust one out to mimic the barn in the photo. The bauble on the side is a cork from my collection of corks. Yes know you have them. I've always wanted to make SOMETHING with them and this is as good as anything else right?

The butterfly is a spellbinders die and is cut from the metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle. 

I wanted lots of layers and goopiness and stampiness and just good fun. And of course....I love to layer my canvas.

The clock is a DA chippie that I have been hoarding and I've covered it in Lindy's embossing powder in Spanish Moss gold.

Since notebooks get a lot of wear and tear on the back cover, I used the paint and left it plain

well, about as plain as THIS FABULOUSNESS CAN BE!!!!

Hope you enjoyed my latest and greatest. If you're looking for a little inspiration, check out the monthly mood board at Dusty Attic.
