Transform It!

Hello hello!  I wanted to share a layout I did this week for the August Swirlygirl Challenge over at Swirlydoos (  This month’s challenge is hosted by Christy at Creating With The Girls (  The goal was to take a piece of paper and transform it’s look using whatever you wanted.  Since I am a fan of mixed-media I pulled things from my bag of tricks….

This month’s kit from Swirlydoos is filled with the most beautiful papers it was hard for me to choose one to transform.  They were all gorgeous on their own!  That said–here is what I did…
