June Reveal for Swirlydoos

OMG OMG OMG....that was me opening my box stuffed full with the June Swirlydoos Kit "The Looking Glass".  I was totally freaking out because this kit was masculine themed. Masculine pages!!! ME?!??! I can't do masculine!! It's soooo hard for me! Boy oh boy has that changed!! I dived right into the kit and got my hands dirty.... literally!!

The Hawk

This awesome gear key chippy comes in the Main Kit. I misted it heavily with Perfect Pearls Forever Red. 

I ripped up the box the kit came in. And had at with with gesso, smooch spritz (embellie kit) and perfect pearls mist. I adhered it to the black cardstock with foam dots and tucked Dusty Attic brick chippies underneath. The Brink Chipboard didn't come in the kit, but being a subscriber to Swirlydoos gives you the opportunity to use the Special Orders forum.

This page is based on the Exclusive Swirlydoos Sketch by Begga

The main has the very cool Tattered Angels Pocket Watch Alphas. I inked it with Chestnut Roon Cat's eye then used Gold Alcohol ink. I attached the chain that came in the embellie kit for the added look of a pocket watch.

 I added a bunch of little do-dads. I raided my dads tool box of bolts and nuts...lol! The Tattered Angels Glimmer Glass was fun to work with. I did some misting and heated with the heat gun.

I'm so happy with the way my two boy pages came out :)
Now, I don't have the fear of not being able to do masculine pages.  I actually really enjoyed putting these two together!! Thanks Krissy for hearing some of the Swirly girls out about getting a masculine kit together!

Alrighty...now to the girly pages!

 Just a close-up of the pretty blooms and trim.

I used the Tattered Angel stamp along the side. I have the glimmer screen in my stash, so I was able to layer them. Pretty cool effect!

Your Smile

It's my turn this month to do Anatomy of a Page. You can find the step by step instruction on how I did this page HERE

Somewhere in Time

 This beautiful tiny pocket watch came in the embellie kit. I put a cute little matching butterfly in it.

 This time when I used the pocket Watch I just used the gold alcohol ink and placed a flower in the center.
