Reveal Day at Swirlydoos *Lavender Escape*

Today is the most anticipated day of the month. The reveal of October's Swirlydoos Kit "Lavender Escape". This month's kit is full of the new Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue and, of course, beautiful Prima Blooms. This has to be, hands down, the best kit thus far. With any shade of purple being my favorite color I was easily motivated.

Tutu Cute
So, I'm still working on all my photo's of Delilah in her tutu. She was so cooperative I was able to get 20+ photos of her. I'm still learning some techniques in Photoshop. This time around was Textures. I placed a purplish blue texture behind the picture and used a 35% opacity. The design was inspired by Ingvlid Bloom. She is one of my favorite artists.

I cut apart the Prima vine and placed pieces of it on different part of my page.

With the Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, I first sprayed with Grape Smooch Spritz, dabbed with a paper towel then added stickles.

In your eyes
Cleapatra has the prettiest dark blue eyes. It's the first thing I see in her photos and what I always work around.

The peacock feather came with the huh? I used the new Prima Masks to make the design on the Prima packaging.

My Delilah
Although I love purple, I wanted to go with a lighter scheme. Peach, pink and green...LOVE IT!!

The kit came with these clear plastic doilies. You can't really tell in the photo, but I misted it with a light pink.

This my oldest daughter Nefferteari. She is my biggest helper when she knows that I have DT stuff to work on. With this page I used several shades up purple. When I was putting it together I was thinking no way was it going to work. I really love the way it turned out!

I love misting! It gives character to a blank spot :)

Me & Eli-G
Elijah is an awesome older brother. He always takes care, plays and protects Delilah. So she calls him "My Eli-g". It's the cutest thing!!
The page is based on the Exclusive Swirlydoos Sketch by Begga.

One of our Swiry Sisters, Jan, did a tutorial on her blog on how to punch round edges. You can find it here.

I really hope that you have enjoyed my pages :)
