Swirlydoos Febuary Kit ROCKS!

Swirlydoos Febuary kit is GORGEOUS!!! Pretty flowers, heart tiles, cool funky pps, what more could we want?
I embossed the chippies very simply using Distress Inks (Worn Lipstick and Concord Grape) and covering that with clear powder!
Just a fun, floral winter lo!

Mountain Man GRRRRR

This is my super guy, Kel. I love him to bits...except, this mountain man look drives me bonkers!
I used Feb and Dec Swirlydoos kit items for this.
I covered the deer in Antique Linen Distress Crackle Paint then I rubbed it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink; the large heart is Fired Brick and Walnut Stain Distress with Broken China Distress Stickles; the smaller one is SEI chalk ink and Broken China and Fired Brick Distress Stickles. WHEW!
I distressed the edges and used WS Distress again. I also sprayed the blue paper with Patina and Sapphire Glimmer Mist.
I painted the cardboard piece with the Crackle Paint then went over it with Fired Brick Distress.
I misted the snowflakes with Brick Glimmer Mist.

Snowy Weekend....what to do??? Oh yeah...SCRAP!

Ok, SO I got a TEENSY bit embellie happy with this one!
This lo is for a challenge at Swirlydoos to scrap what you love about yourself!
I love that I know who I am. I am crazy, nutty, loyal, indesisive, easy goin...all that and more.
I used the chipboard as a mask with Turquoise Blue Glimmer Mist, then I used the hearts against it. I sprayed the hearts with Cherry Red Smooch Spritz and Brick Glimmer Mist. I also used the Spritz on the FABULOUS metal embellie that I won from Bonnie just for hanging out and posting at Swirlydoos! YES!
The only items NOT from Swirlydoos are the felt Prima vine and the Maya Road little birdie (I colored it with Siren Smooch.
Prima bling, centers and e line pearls are all over this!
Plus the ADORABLE those!
Swirlydoos rocks the house with scrappy goodness no doubt!

This is my layout for the Febuary sketch challenge at Swirlydoos. I LOVE the Prima 12x12 canvas! I used some artists' Gesso to "paint" a bit on the canvas before tearing it up with Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist. I used Spiced Marmalade and Faded Jeans Distress Inks along with Glimmer Mist in Sapphire and Tuscan Sun.
I inked the fabulous heart tile with Distress Ink (Faded Jeans), Smooch (Navy), Glimmer Mist (Tuscan Sun), Smooch Spritz (Gold Glimmer and Distress Stickles (Spiced Marmalade).
I used some Kaisercraft bling to accent the heart and I covered the bottom leafy chip piece in ink, Glimmer Mist and Distress Stickles.
I covered the title alphas in Antique Linen Distress Crackle Paint, then went over the words
with Distress Ink.
This awesome sketch is from Beggahuna, she is so talented!
I think my next lo should be messier. :p
