Swirlydoos' October Blog Hop & Kit Reveal!


Welcome to Swirlydoos' October Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!

Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win!!! Check out Swirlydoos on Facebook and Like Us!!!

This kit, called "Sweet Things", truly is sweet. The colors are impossibly adorable, and the combinations of embellishments are brilliant. I love how easy it is to create a whimsical layout like below...
"Imagine"

I wanted it to appear dreamy, with all the colors and a touch of pearl like paint. So I used a royal palette of golds and pinks, still keeping it messy and playful with gesso, splashes of color, ripping apart one of the flowers for the sprinkled petals, and her flower balloon that she is holding.

"The Amazing Journey"
 I love how my daughter can get lost in a book, and I wanted this layout to look just that... like she was lost and bursting in and out of the page. I used minimal paint here, just a bit of gesso and Shimmerz, but the rest was fussy cutting details from the kit. LOVE everything that could be re-arranged!

 I also have the great honor of bringing you this month's Anatomy of a Layout! To see the process that led me to the layout below, please don't forget to pop into the Swirlydoos Forum to check it out!

"Fall Ball '13"
I'm not going to shed much light on what I did here, so that you can check out the all the steps at Swirlydoos, but as you can see - lots of paint, cutting, layering, and blinging was involved!
