Reveal Day at Swirlydoos *Mon Amour*

It's that time again...Reveal Day at Swirlydoos. This months kit, Mon Amour, has that Parisian feel, yet on a darker side! So, I went crazy this month and Photoshopped all my pictures to match the kit. I've done 5 pages so far and have so much left over. I'll be working on more throughout the month.

Lil Lovely Lashes
This is a photo my sweet little Delilah. I altered it a bit to give it just a hint of color. I used some of my own butterflies with the diamond dust centers.

Unseen side of me
This is me...well half of me...lol!! The photoshop forum has lots of tips on where to find brushes, action and textures. For this picture I added lashes and butterfly wings. I did some personal journinag on the back explaining the reason behind the page.

Twilight Eyes
Oh man, did I have fun with this page!!!! First off, I was so excited that I was able to alter Nefferteari's eyes for the Veggie Vampire Eye color. I figured out how to do it in like 2 minutes. Needless to say, she LOOOVVVEEEESSSSS this page!! Stupid me, I forgot an "I" in Twilight...grrr.

Moody Girl
I have no idea how I was able to pull green into this kit. ..lol! I sprayed the doily paper with Smooch Spritz. I also made my own green spray using items that came with the project kit. I used the green mist on the flowers. The tech kit also came with Grunge Flowers. I sprayed those with Moonshadow mist. Krissy has a section in the forums where you can place special orders in bulk...lol!! Check out the Special Order thread.

This page is based on Beggahuna exclusive sketch for Swirlydoos.

Be sure to stop by Swirlydoo's store to get your Mon Amour Kit :)

Thanks for visiting!!!

Zva Creative August DT Blog Hop!

The Zva Designers are joining together today to share a project that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun again this month!

The Blog Hop begins at
Kim Hughes' blog. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way. Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! Those blogs will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.

The Blog Hop starts now and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 31st and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 1st on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (linked above). We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday...plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. The more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.


The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes Blog

** Your next stop is here: Teri Anderson's Blog

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us

New Corner Vines

I've designed some new vines to sell at my Etsy Shop. These are made to fit in a corner of a page or a photo. With the corner vine comes matching tiny vine. The corner vine measures 5 inches horizontally and vertically at a 90 degree angle. The tendrils can be bent and moved to in any direction. The Tiny vine is made to coordinates with the corner vine and measures 4 inches in length. If ya get a chance stop by my Little Scrapshop for more colors and other pretty items!

Thanks for taking a peek!!
