Swirlydoos 2nd Reveal for Upon a Time Kit

Hello friends! Today I'd like to share with you more projects I created using the Swirlydoos February Scrapbook Kit, Upon a Time.

First up is a mini I made using the Tech/Project add-on. I didn't use the paint system because the colors were to dark for what I had in mind. I wanted a shabby chic theme that I love so much and never have a enough time to do!!
 
For the cover I used a piece of the Tattered Angels brushed cotton paper. I sprayed it with Vintage Pink Glimmermist to tint the white a bit of pink. Once it was dry I used gel medium to glue little scraps of Tim Holts Text Tissue Paper.  Then, when that was dry I used the Prima Crackle Mask(came in the tech kit) and molding paste. When it was completed I glued it down to the cover and added the embellishments.
 For the inside left I used the same technique as above. In some spots I added a blob of molding paste and sprinkled seed beads. Once it dries the molding paste holds the seed beads in place. On the right side I created 2 torn pockets to place the tags into. The Prima Mechanical findings came in the embellishment kit. I painted the metal with gesso and sprayed with glimmermist for more texture.The butterflies are from my Etsy shop.....you can find them HERE.
 
You can see how beautifully chunky the mini is!!!
 Here are some close-ups of the insides. You can see all the texture and layers I created.
I love Prima Crackle mask!!! I used it on all the pages!

 Lastly here are two cards I made using the Main Kit. I used up most of my paper creating the mini album, so all the bits of scraps and leftovers worked perfect for the cards. 
 
Thanks for taking a peek!! I hope that I've inspired you to create something beautiful!!!
 
 hugs,
