September is coming to a close so I decided to share my last 2 layouts created with the September Swirlydoos kit. I really enjoy are the warm browns and cool blues in this kit. It has been an absolute joy to work with.
The first layout is a picture of my beloved hubby. I loved the houses in the embellishment kit were so cute and country...I wanted to figure out a way to incorporate them in my layout.
I used glimmer mist in Sunflower, Patina, Suede, and Aquamarine for this LO. I also used my Donna Downey damask stencil from eclectic Paperie for the background. The drips are made with a Tim Holtz reinker in frayed burlap. I loved the wood feathers that came with this months kit and I was determined to use them so I covered them with Distress glitter in Antique Linen and then sprayed them in a gradient pattern with the same colors of glimmer mist. I LOVE The way it turned out. The title was cut on my Cameo but was a tad lost so I edged it using a Distress marker in walnut.
This layout was created for the round robin over at Swirlydoos. I had to lift the LO's that were done previous to mine.
The punches are all Martha stewart. The chipboard twigs are Dusty attic pieces. I used some glimmer glass pieces from an old swirlydoos kit for the pieces sticking out and the resin piece is a broken chunk from the pieces bin at the Melisa Frances booth! I made the zipper flower myself and the large rolled flowers are made from Prima packaging. The hinge is a really old, and I mean old, stamp set that I stamped on brown card stock, fussy cut, and then covered with inka gold in copper.
It's difficult to see but I did use the Viva modeling cream in pearl with the ledger stencil and on the Dusty Attic berries. It was a perfect combination.
I hope you enjoyed my final layouts with the September kit. Hop over to the Swirlydoos Boutique to grab your kit today. If we are all sold out become a subscriber so you never miss out again!
