A Swirlydoos August kit layout. I just wanted to play with the Eiffel Tower really...hehee!!

It was a beotch though a bit, there are 7 different alcohol inks, 2 colors of Smooch Spritz and 2 colors of Glimmer Mist on this! I just kept adding and then spraying to get it right!

Okay, I am having a serious love affair with Fragments. I was so excited to see that they were available with the kit and HAD to get them! I first inked one side with Hazelnut, Pebble and Silver Mixative alcohol ink. I used a Glitz stamp to stamp the words onto a Journal Card and glued it to the fragment. :) (The skinny ones I used a different stamp underneath, still a Glitz one.)

I cut Paris with the Cricut out of Prima packaging. :D

Swirlydoos August Sketch Challenge

Okay, so I don't ALWAYS get this one done, but August's sketch was just amazing! I had to do it quickly!

For the little CI birdie, I used Denim and Shell alcohol ink and a little blending solution. I put a light coat of Glossy Accents over that then while still wet, sprinkled some Diamond Dust on the belly of the bird. :)

The TINY white flowers I painted with Shimmerz, then dropped a few drops of alcohol ink on them.

I love the July Swirlydoos kit! So much pretty!! :D

So, I decided to pretty overload! This is an Eclipse still. I think it is the best one yet.

I wanted to focus on the gate as far a technique. I first inked it with Walnut Stain Distress ink, then used Emerald Sprinkle and Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. The I used a Perfect Medium Pen to ink places I wanted Perfect Pearls to be sprinkled, I used Rust. Then, I little embossing ink and powders in Puffy White and Gold.

I will try to get better pics as the weather improves!

This is my very first design team layout ever! I am so excited to be designing for Scraps Of Darkness kit club! This first kit is a definite sign of good things to come!

Gorgeous papers by Creative Imaginations, Prima flowers and awesome embellies compile this kit for the alternative scrapper.

I did some cut work here, misting, lacing, painting...I even burned a few things!

Thanks so much for looking and check out this kit, it rocks!
