I feel in love with this weeks palette. It's so girly and!! This was so easy for me to work with. I was able to go through my stash and pull all the pink I've been hording. I want to thank my dear friend Paulien for the lovely handmade lilies she gifted me. Thank you so much Paulien, I couldn't wait to use them!!

The Color Room Palette #63

I did it!! I played along again this week!!!! When I first saw this weeks palette I was really intimated. I was thinking to skip it and try again next week. I've never scrapped these colors before. But, I figured if I pulled the colors and worked with the sketch it shouldn't be that hard. So, that's what I did and this is the turn out.

Another Swirlydoos page

I had so much fun making the two masculine pages for reveal day using the June "Looking Glass" Kit. I just has to do another!! So, here it is.............

This is my grandfather on my mother's side. The picture was taken in the early1940's when he served in the United States Army. Sadly, I never got to meet him. He passed away before I was born.

For the Dusty Attic hinge chippy I first inked with Distress Ink and misted with Gold Perfect Pearls. Once that was dry I applied crackle. When the crackle was dry, using the tip of my scissors, I scraped off some of crackle layer. 

This is just a close-up of all the layering and tucking. I used a tip from a fellow Swirlydoos Designers, Camilla, to use foam dots in between layers. This makes the tucking easier.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

The Color Room Palette #62

I've been a lurker of The Color Room what seems like forever. I finally decided to sit down and actually do a page with this weeks palette. I had so many left over goodies from my Swirly stash that match perfectly with palette.  This is my daughter Cleapatra. She will be turning 12 tomorrow, June 11th. In celebration of her birthday, I'd thought it would be nice to scrap a picture of her! Happy Birthday Sweetie!!

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. 

Be Cool
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! 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! to the girly pages!

Sweetie Pie

 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.
