Hello hello! I wanted to share a layout I did this week for the August Swirlygirl Challenge over at Swirlydoos (http://swirlydoos.com/news.php). This month’s challenge is hosted by Christy at Creating With The Girls (http://creatingwiththegirls.blogspot.com/). 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….
Here is the Before:
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…
I recently received some corrugated snowflakes in an RAK from the Funky Junkie Boutique (http://www.thefunkiejunkie.com/) so after gluing those down I continued layering with various and sundry mediums to get to the end result.
Here is a close-up:
I am obsessed with pink right now and can’t seem to get enough of it! The photo is from a clipart sheet I bought several years ago from ArtChix Studio (http://www.artchixstudio.com/shop/home.php?dir=home).
Here is a list of the supplies I used to create this:
Dylusions spray colorant in White Linen and Funky Fuschia
Inkagold in Rose
Prime and Bo Bunny flowers
Plaid craft paint in County Twill
Versacolor ink pad in Peony
gesso mixed with Dylusions in Funky Fuschia
Heritage 3d Stencil paint

Totally marvelous Katy! That paper sheet is much improved by your artistic hand – love it!
Thanks Pauline! I tried to restrain myself because I wanted to be able to still see some of the original paper underneath. Thanks for visiting!
