More from Swirlydoos Inspiration Kit

Hi everyone! My post for today is two more layouts I made with the September Swirlydoos Kit "Inspiration". This kit is so amazing and versatile. As you will see in my two pages.
Live Free
 Here I went grunge using lots of mist and distressing. I love my brick wall mask!! Last time I used it on my "Tuff" layout I used gesso. With the gesso it worked more as a resist. This time I used molding paste, which kept some of the color and gives more dimension.
A Perfect Day
Here I went more of a shabby romantic feel. I'm totally in love with this picture of Elijah and Delilah! So damn adorable!!! I made the pocket from the cut-out on the backside of the Prima Romance Novel paper. In the little pocket I had them write a note to each other. Saved there for all time :) I used some of the resin from the tech kit to made the little oval charm. At first I was a bit nervous to use it. But once I watched Lynn and Tiffany's (our Educational gals) videos, it was cake. You can find the videos HERE. The butterflies are from my Etsy shop. They match perfectly to the colors of this page.
Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit! 

Thanks for stopping by!
