The January Kit, Whimsy, is so full of colors I absolutely love!!! I was in awe when I got my kit an couldn't wait to get started!!!
 
 Forever Young
Okay, so if you know me, you know purple is MY color!! Any shade....I love to work with it!!  Usually it takes me days to complete a layout. I was able to finish this page in three hours!! It  would have been shorter but there was drying time. I made the frame from a mold using some resin. And just painted it. The Dark Lavender Butterfly Embellishment can be found at my Etsy Shop.
 
Angel Face
For this page I used the left overs from a Dusty Attic Frame. I painted it with gesso and sprayed some glittermist. One that was dry I used a mask and modling paste to make the diamond pattern to match the background paper. When the molding paste was dry, I used my finger to add some silk paint(came in the kit) to the lifted area for some highlights. The butterflies are from my Etsy shop..they matched perfectly!!
 
Beautiful Princess
This is the page I did using the sketch. I usually don't like yellow, but when it's paired up with blue it sings to me.
 
Here is the exclusive monthly Swirlydoos Sketch by Begga. As you can see, I flipped the sketch and used one photo instead of the six. I have such a hard time with small photos.
